Developer: Spiders
Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
Genre: Action RPG
Release Date: September 10th, 2019

I was in need of a new Dragon Age-like gaming experience, and that’s definitely what I got with this game! Nothing distracts me from life’s drama like a nice and fun action RPG. WHY IS LIFE SO HARD?? Dragons… are awesome… *sobs uncontrollably* Ahem. Sorry. Lemme try to get into a semi-professional video game review mode. Nope! No painful memories being struggled with at all over here. Notta one, eh. Dragon Age is a great video game series, by the way. A really awesome video game series that I miss… a lot. Luckily, GreedFall has given me some badly needed happy new memories! Thank you for that, above all else, game I’m about to semi-seriously review. 🐉

Platform Played On: PS4

Genre: Graphic Adventure
Release Date: October 20th, 2015

I’ve read numerous opinions praising this game’s narrative style over the years, but you know how the eternal backlog struggle goes: so many great games, so little time to play them. I was away on a work trip to a province of Canada with much lower sales tax than my own, and that’s where I picked up a copy of this game for cheap on my way back home. And, dude… am I ever glad I did! Mind = blown (when I finally got around to actually playing it, of course).

Wannabe Writer’s Note: This is the re-posting of the Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice review I wrote on my old website. This article was originally posted on December 10, 2017. Enjoy past me’s unedited ramblings! Oh oh oh! And I thought it was worth mentioning that THE Melina Juergens, Senua’s actress, liked my original review tweet on Twitter!! 😱 It really means a lot when famous people take the time to do stuff like that for fans.

Hellblade Review 2
*fangirl squeal*

It’s rare when a game changes my perspective on life and makes me seriously consider why the hell I’m on this planet in the first place. Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice is an experience unlike anything else I’ve ever lived in a game world. It left me with an inspiring message at a time when I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by my own shadows. We all see this crazy world of ours in a different light. At the end of it all, and in the grand scheme of things, do we really matter anyway? It’s a harsh reality that is both depressing and inspiring at the same time, just like this game.

“When the illusion of self is shattered, you simply cease to be.”

Hellblade Review 3
Hellblade can be summed up in two words: disturbingly beautiful.
