Hello and today I am reviewing Darksiders Warmastered edition. If anyone is wondering about the extensive hiatus, I apologize, as freetime has been significantly diminished since college my college days have started. Is that a really poor excuse? Yes. Does this mean I will get into a regular But enough about that, as a review is needed to be done. Onto the review. Beware minor and average sized spoilers ahead. Just as a general warning, this game is rated M, but there is not any terrible language (that is remembered on the top of my head, at least no F-bombs) , or sexual content. There is gore and violence however.

Hello and today I’m doing a review on Fable 2. Now a legitimate question that my personal friends would ask is,”Hey Travis, isn’t Fable 2 one of your favorite, if not your favorite game?” Then they would precede to wonder if I’m doing acts of desperation for my blog to not let it die. Proceeding onwards, this game is rated M, so don’t let little Billy play it. Like seriously, don’t. I love this game and would recommend it to anyone, but it is a bad idea to give little kids rated M games.
The plot of this game is awesome. The plot begins where you are an orphan named Sparrow who gets led onto a castle along side and shot out a window, fall quite a few stories, survive (while your sister is killed), and then raised as a gypsy. You are then set on a quest to avenge your sisters death. My only complaint is the ending sucks (really more along the lines of anticlimactic). I’m not going to spoiler territory because that would be a jackhole move.
The sound track of this game is something I legitimately can’t go into is because how I played this game was one the Xbox One’s backward compatibility feature and that corrupted some of the sound (especially in the temple of shadows) . For me it was either speed up the process of gaining hearing loss with age or listen to my own music. The voice acting was good (it wasn’t corrupted except for the temple of shadows) however.
The gameplay is phenomenal. I like how you can be a corrupt jackhole or a pure saint, or someone who is heavily corrupt but overall good. I personally was a pure soul not guided by morals (aka pure neutral). I also love how interactive everything is. I do have to admit I got too much of a kick from chicken punting.
Overall I would give this game 9.9 out of 10. I love this game to death and think it is amazing in every way except for the ending/final boss. Although I might be slightly biased as Fable is one of my top 3 favorite game series, I truly believe this game is a good game. I played it to completion, and would recommend it to anyone. Signing out for now

Hello and today I am back (hopefully) from my hiatus and I’m going to do a review on Hollow Knight. I’m keeping this nice and simple and just going right in.
Hollow Knight is a metroidvania esc game where you play as the Knight on a quest like none other. The main game mechanics is jumping and using the nails. If you look at the controls you might wonder what’s the dream nail, and what’s spells and dashing. To that I say just be a patient person and you’ll get those moves eventually. You can technically focus from straight off the bat if you have soul, but it’s to heal. One thing to note is when traversing the area, spikes almost always win, with the exception of using your nail against it.Now onto plot. I am just going to say you find out the plot by exploring. This is a truly phenomenal plot. I was hooked straight from the get go. There is very rare situation where I don’t elaborate on a plot and this is it. I love the plot, and go experience it for yourself. ‘Nuff said.
The audio and visuals for this game is, simply put, amazing. How this game handles everything is flipping awesome. When the developers wanted to set an unnerving scene, they put in a little violen and made freaking creepy visuals. When they wanted a tranquil feel they made a gloomy image with a soothing melody. This is hands down impressive work.
In summary I would give this game a 9.9 out of ten. The point one is me being petty and wanting more. I also want a plushie or something of some of the games things. That would be nice. But realistically I give this game a 10/10. I can’t be petty. I would recommend this for kids, for adults, for teens, for elderly, heck, for any one. That is all for now-

*Post edit* Read this before the post Treat this like a draft. I will come back to this and either re-do it or just add more. My everyday stress seeped in this and I just don’t like the outcome of this. This review doesn’t do this game justice. So expect in the future a entirely new post on this game or if I re-edit this this little tidbit will have a line through the whole thing.

As it is a new year, I feel like I should add more stuff. And that I shall. Starting today, I declare January kickback month. What is kick back month you may ask. Kickback month is going to be where I (and other staff members if I get more, the only other staff member I have is if I get sick, but mostly a fact checker/ reminder to post) mostly post stuff that is a call back to classic games, or games of yesteryear, with the occasional game that is from a year or two ago. I have three games I am currently playing, so once I finish those games expect a ton of posts. I do apologize again for not posting very much, but I am a student, so I don’t have the biggest amount of free time. That’s all for now-
For the next month (if it is popular for the rest of this blogs life) , I will be posting a walkthrough for a game every Monday at 4:00 starting next week Monday (unless specified otherwise). Games can be suggested, and if it is a long one I might do that on Mondays and Wednesday. Suggestions for the first one are open until this Saturday, but you can still suggest for the next game. You can suggest on the twitter (will be put on comments of this) or on the comments of any post. That’s it for now-
