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.

Pathway Review (Switch)

Pathway Review: If Indiana Jones Was a Good Game     Everybody knows that of the Indiana Jones movies, Raiders of the Lost Ark is the best. I mean, when the Nazis get their faces melted off by the Ark of the Covenant? Classic. Pathway, from Robotality, gave me…

Out of Line Review (PC)

Out of Line Review: A Gorgeous, Unique Puzzle-Platformer     If I have one gaming genre that I’m just not good at, it would be platformers. And yet, despite my total lack of platforming prowess, I still really enjoy them. I mean, what kind of monster honestly doesn’t like…
