Double Double Toil and Trouble: Getting into Something Wicked

Something Wicked – By Breaking Games MSRP: $25 Genre: Family / Strategy No. Players: 2-3 Ages: 12+ I was super excited to try out Something Wicked! Not only did it seem like a fun way to celebrate Halloween, but the festivity and the ability to play as a witch also seemed especially timely during the pandemic, as people continue to forgo Fall Festivities such as Halloween parties, haunted houses, and trick-or-treating. Initial Impressions I was even more ...

Impressions from #XBOXE3 Briefing

XBOX E3 Briefing: Impressions Walking around the LA Convention Center, Day one of E3, the first thing people do is ask a question. “So what did you think?” On the afternoon of E32019 Day One, this was referring to the XBOX briefing. To Be honest, I was not that hyped for the briefing, besides experiencing the wonder of an XBOX Live production. **SPOILER** I was pleasantly surprised! Not only did XBOX bring an even more spectacular production they ...

Buzzing with Excitement for Bee Simulator

“Bee” a Tiny Hero One of the games I was looking forward to at PAX South was Bee Simulator from Poland’s Varsav Game Studio. I’m always enthused about games with the potential to be both fun and educational.  As a gamer, mother, and full-time educational game design professor I had high hopes for a simulation game. During PAX South, I had the opportunity to play the demo. Varsav Game Studio’s Founder / Vice President Lukasz Rosiński sat down ...

Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee – PET ME!

While Pokémon Let’s Go has been out for awhile, the experience of game play across generations is worthy of discussion.  I got Pokémon Let’s Go: Eevee the week it was released. I can only speak to the experience as one with the Pokéball controller.  This controller, for me, was the selling point. In fact, I did not even own a switch until the game was released. I must say, I fully enjoy the game.  I mean, to be able to play as Ash, discovering Eevee was so ...

Warner Bros Booth Tour at E3 2018

Warner Bros did not disappoint at E3 2018! I didn’t realize it until my booth tour was over with WB, but villainy was definitely the theme. I only played two titles, but I was a Hitman in one and a DC villain aiding the Joker in a prison escape in the others. I am now realizing how infrequently play villains, and I have say, I loved it. Another delightful surprise, both of these games will release before the end of the year, so players will get a chance to ...

You Just Had to Be There: Impressions from the Xbox E3 Briefing

Let me start by saying, having the opportunity to experience the XBOX briefing was amazing. Not only did they announce the acquisition of five studios, they also showed 50 games, 15 of which were “console exclusive”. Of course, console exclusive doesn’t make a game belong to Xbox, some may be on PC as well (e.g. PUBG), others may only be exclusive to XBOX for a limited time.

Bethesda Event PAX East

One of the highlights of my PAX East Experience was Bethesda Gameplay Day on April 7th. During this time, guests had the opportunity to play The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset, The Elder Scrolls: Legends – Houses of Morrowind, Quake Champions, and try Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on the Nintendo Switch! Ironically, the event was not in the convention center, so people didn’t even need a PAX badge to attend what was essentially a gameplay party including ...
