I’m sure that by now you’ve noticed that games these days are being shaped by what how the media, particularly by gaming journalism. After the reaction to Sekiro’s difficulty and other indie games been blasted for their different takes in story-telling, one has to wonder if gaming is still as free as we all like to think?
This is what I’m talking about when I say that our games are getting easier by the day. Games today aren’t getting easier because gamers are becoming more and more incompetent at playing them, no, they’re getting easier because certain game journalists out there can’t seem to get good at them! Now they’re blatantly demanding them to add “easy mode” like this one Forbes journalist has done.
In just under a few days, Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice will drop to the public so to tie us in until then, they released a brand to trailer to give us the rundown of the gameplay mechanics.
Pre-order Early Access has been growing in popularity over these last few years, with more and more game publishers participating in it. At first it was nothing much, maybe at most you’ll get a day early and that’s it.

With all that Pokemon Sword and Shield hype going on, some of y’all may have forgotten that another game about taming monsters is also coming out in 2019 (hopefully), and that’s Digimon Survive. We haven’t heard much since it’s reveal back in 2018 but hopefully that will change in the upcoming months.
I’ve been thinking about this one for a while now and I know that this blog may not sit well with some people out there but I wanted to discuss the effects of YouTubers who’s sole purpose is to just “hype up” games with criticism can have on the overall quality of the the product.
If you remember a while back, I talked about The Dragon Prince getting its own game that ties in and expands the lore of world. Well, now we have some more information about the game and I’m starting to like what I’m hearing.
After the insanely ridiculous single Red Dot for $1 that can be found in the new Call of Duty, one has to really wonder, who here is really to blame for these ridiculous Microtransactions practices? Even after all the backlash that we’ve seen over the past few months, game companies are still ready and willing to try these asinine microtransactions so what’s going on?
There’s so many games coming or possibly coming in 2019, so I thought I’d share my list of games I’m looking forward to in 2019. There’s a good chance you’ve probably haven’t heard of them too.
