Once upon a time, he wrote for oprainfall. Now, he's scraping off the rust to get back into writing about the games he loves. From his humble origins of playing the Atari and Commodore 64, he now dabbles in just about every console there is. Although he has a particular love of hardcore dungeon-crawlers, roguelikes, and niche JRPGs, some of his favorite games include Earthbound, Persona 3, Eternal Sonata, Bravely Default, Tales of the Abyss, and Fate/Extra. If his geek cred wasn't good enough, he's also a bassoonist.

Mothmen 1966 Review (Switch)

Mothmen 1966 Review: An Engaging Retelling of American Folklore   Fun fact: When I was young, my dream job was being a cryptozoologist. At the time, I didn’t realize it was pseudoscience (of the best kind, if you ask me), I just knew that devoting my life to finding…

Super UFO Fighter Review (Switch)

Super UFO Fighter Review: Shwoop There it Is!   I love me a good party game. The kind of game where you can just sit back with some friends and simultaneously get unreasonably frustrated and laugh at the same time. The only problem I really encounter with party games…

Gordian Quest Review (PC)

Gordian Quest Review: What if Slay the Spire and Dungeons & Dragons Had a Baby? I am a geek of many, many stripes: band geek (oboe and bassoon for double the geek points); arts and crafts geek (I recently made my own wedding decorations out of an old dictionary,…
