More Thoughts From Me #159: The Switch Finds Its (War) Groove

I don’t like Advance Wars. I’ve tried to like the series, but its just never hooked me. But when I saw WarGroove for the Nintendo Switch for the first time, I thought it looked cool. Yes, some of it looks inspired by Advance Wars, but the fantasy setting appealed to me more than Advance Wars military setting. So I was interested in the game and I become more interested as I saw further footage. So yes, I bought WarGroove for…

More Thoughts From Me #157: Checking Out Dreams

Dreams is a Playstation 4 exclusive game that will let you create your own video game (and other stuff), share it, and play other people’s creations. If you played LittleBigPlanet, you’ll have an idea of what Dreams is but only know the half of it. The LittleBigPlanet series is great. I love it. Dreams is not out yet, but I can already tell you its bigger and better than LittleBigPlanet. How? I got to play the recent Dreams beta on…

Even if you’ve never read any of his stuff, you know that he was a master of the horror genre. Many horror writers/artists/etc have taken inspiration from Lovecraft. So it should come as no surprise when horror video games borrow from the writer. Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is inspired…
