West Of Loathing Review

The Best RPG This Side Of The Pecos

HIGH Shockingly nuanced and detailed, both in writing and game design.   

LOW My failure to figure out Stench resistance for far too long.

WTF The game’s obsession with spittoons, but in the best possible way.


Smoke And Sacrifice Review

Swunge-ing In The Deep

HIGH Finally getting to an environment that isn’t swamp or snow.

LOW The first time I fast-traveled at moderate health and got killed by enemies before the world finished loading.

WTF How does this arrangement of swamp, blazing hot coal fields, and bitterly cold snow zones even exist?


An Eye For Accessibility: Kingdom Come Deliverance

Little is more disappointing for me as a Deaf gamer than eagerly anticipating a new title, getting caught up in up how amazing it will be while I wait for release, and then being majorly let down by accessibility issues when it’s finally out. This has happened countless times, and it always seems to crop up with games I’m anticipating the most. The latest? Kingdom Come: Deliverance from Warhorse Studios.


Indivisible Preview

Set in a lush animated world full of jungles, temples, and mythological monsters, Indivisible puts players in the role of a girl who must traverse a 2D world, gather allies, and employ their aid in the strange turn-based battles that cause this game to be classified more as an RPG than its visual style would suggest.


Divinity: Original Sin II Review

No Longer Original, But Still Divine

HIGH Sending Crispin, the undead philosopher, into an existential collapse.

LOW Side quests often fail to close properly.

WTF An out-of-place Pipe Mania-esque puzzle in the final dungeon.
