I love watching horror games on YouTube, at least ones that don’t rely only on jump scares. Games like Baldi’s Basics, Outlast, Resident Evil 5, etc. are all fun haunts to watch someone else deal with the tension of being chased. Being chased is the primary theme of most horror games. There is a monster, somewhere hidden within the game world and he’s coming for you. Seriously, look at the below: Most horror games involve fear being from the unknown element of a stalker. Something is out there and you could run into it at any given point. Fear is the motivator but Luigi’s mansion is different. It’s creepy and spooky and scary and it has jump scares, plenty of them, but it doesn’t use time as a motivator. It doesn’t make you have to run and hide and constantly test different locations for you to hide in order for…

Fortnite brought about something very interesting in the world of mobile gaming – dedicated gaming phones like the Razer Phone 1 & 2 and the ASUS ROG line of phones. These phones tout a host of features that make them sound like they’re going to help you play Fortnite or other mobile games longer, with “fancy” heatsinks that wick away the heat and other gaming features like RGB lights and gaming mode software. The answer, actually, isn’t very clear if they’re worth it or not due to one complexity – the high refresh rate screens. At one time, the 120hz and 90hz screens were limited to just the gaming phones, but now there is actually a lot of flagships like the Google Pixel 4 and OneTouch 7 that have high refresh rate screens. The higher the refresh on the screen, the faster the battery drain too, which makes the choice…

Right now I have too many games to play. Here is a list of what I’m trying to actively work through: Apple Arcade games. I’m trying to play them, but I’m so overwhelmed by other games that when I sit down with my Apple TV or my iPhone I’m just thinking I could be playing something else.Luigi’s Mansion 3: The game is wonderful in small bite sized chunks, however, I’m trying to beat it and it does take time.Tales of Vesperia on the PS4: I am almost to the final boss, but so many other games have came out I have to put it on the backburner.Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC: It’s finally on PC and I want to play online with friends, but I’m trying to get through Luigi’s Mansion 2.Pokemon Sword & Shield: As of writing this, the new Pokemon is almost out and I feel like…

It can be a hard choice between the convenience of downloading the game to your console versus the different advantages to having a physical copy like being able to resell your game. On the PS4 and Xbox One it’s a bit of a different ball game, because you’re dealing with game discs vs. the cartridges that the Switch has, which we will go into below. Switch Cartridges vs. Xbox / Playstation Discs The cartridges that the Switch use load faster than the discs other consoles use, because the data is on a ROM chip that has about the same read speed as an SSD. To put it into perspective, the internal memory of the Switch comes in at around 300 MB/s, the SD drive averages 60 MB/s and the cartridge averages 100 MB/s. A PS4’s disc read speed is 27 MB/s, for comparison. This is why games now install to…

Luigi’s Mansion 3 is a continuation of Luigi’s bad luck of having to rescue his brother from some wacky group that has captured him. In Luigi’s Mansion 3 you dive into a hotel that has many floors for you to tackle and locate your best friends who were invited for a weekend of relaxation that turned sour. Overall, the game isn’t too complex. There are some minor jump scares, like interacting with a drawer may cause a jack in the box style effect. You’re guided throughout the game by your loyal pooch and if you’re ever really stuck, just go into the game menu for some hints or wait for a bit and one of the characters will help let you know what to do. Otherwise, here are some tips to make the game a bit easier and to understand a few of the neat mechanics in Luigi’s Mansion 3:…

Over the Alps is a really unique adventure game that’s a mix of the Grand Budapest Hotel, every spy movie ever made and a choose your own adventure with some serious consequences to your actions. It’s broken into four acts and each act can take up to an hour with your various choices that play out through choosing postage stamps for post cards not so much changing the location but the general story and how characters interact with each other. In many ways, it works like this, you have a set path that you move through the game and a general flow for how the story will play out, however, the details of how what when and where play out throughout the game. In this review I will not talk about any details of the game, they must be absolutely enjoyed. However, the below animated GIF is how the game…

The Movies, a business simulator, launched in November 8, 2005 and is still, today, played by an ongoing community who loves not only the fun of building your own movie studio but also the fun things you can do with the movie creation tools. YouTubers Life OMG! is, in so many ways, a modern streamlined version of The Movies, just without the animated movies built in. YouTubers Life takes you into the life of a burgeoning online video star who starts their career with a potato for a PC, mic, webcam and general setup while living with their parents and follows their career house to house as they expand their video making empire. Each video you produce allows you to choose cards to decide outcomes that impact the videos script, acting, editing and sound level. You then go in and edit the video, working in post-production to match scenes together…

Ring Fit Adventure is a wild ride into the world of “Wii Sports” if it were. To be completely upfront and honest, it accomplishes something that Wii Fit, Wii Fit Plus and the Wii Balance Board couldn’t accomplish which is an actual workout, with some exceptions which we will get into. The circular band is a massive improvement over both the balance board and the Wiimote only modes of play that previous iterations have. If you don’t know what it is, you basically have a leg strap to measure where your legs are and a “Ring Fit” which is a circular ring that you attach a Joy-Con to. With the ring, you can press in or pull out and the game measures not only its relative position but also what you’re doing with it and the intensity. An adventure mode exists that allows you to go on an RPG like…
