    Posted by on November 29, 2022 under Euro, Featured Review 1, News, Reviews, Xbox One
    2022 has been quite the year of surprises, of both the pleasant and unpleasant variety. In my particular case however, folks might say that I was – pardon the god-awful pun here – shell-shocked. I'm still reeling from things, and most likely will be for quite some time, but rest assured that I will be okay. As much I would love to delve into details, that would be a whole different kind of rev... more.

    Posted by on July 12, 2022 under Euro, News, Reviews, Switch
    It's not often that I get to play a different kind of game (let alone getting to play period, buuuut that's a whole different epic boss fight of a story for another time…), but when I was asked if I wanted to play a novel, y'all can only imagine my curiosity. In all of my years of saving worlds, rescuing princesses, and winning championships, I had never come across – much less heard of – a ... more.
