Review: Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling (PS4)

     Paper Mario but with bugs (not the technical kind). Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling makes its inspiration obvious just from looking at a screenshot. The art style pays homage to the Paper Mario series and the rest of the game follows suite. The first two Paper Mario games were traditional paper turn based rpgs, and the series has shifted away from that formula since. Bug Fables sets out to create an experience similar to those early entries in the Paper Mario series. Any fans of the classic Paper Mario games will feel at home playing Bug Fables. Besides the art style, the combat will feel familiar right away. Your party has three characters who will be with you for the entirety of the game. You take turns attacking with each character having their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Each character fares better against specific types of enemies. A unique mechanic this game offers is the ability to give your attack to another character. The penalty is that each subsequent attac

Review: Moving Out (PS4)

Watching my children play together is one of the permanent joys of my life, but it's not a joy I experience as much as I use to. As they grew older they grew more apart. This is a normal thing so in those rare moments when they come together to play, laugh and argue I get to relive their younger years and they don't even know it. Like most people my family has been in quarantine for the past weeks and 3 of my children are old enough to live away from home. What use to be family weekend dinners with a few video games mixed in became a text messages and phone calls. Week's went by without seeing them. I could tell our youngest was getting bored and whenever he heard us talking to one of his older siblings on the phone his ears would perk up and he would inevitably ask if they were coming over. We would have to say no and he would slump back down and continue doing whatever he was doing. As the quarantine orders have been lifted and we are finally able to venture out and my ki

Review: The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners (PS VR)

Post Quarantine Simulator      The PlayStation VR has been host to multiple zombie games. The wave-based score chase style game has been the most popular genre for zombie games in VR, with the occasional cooking for zombies simulator. Even in a crowded field, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners manages to stand out from the rest.       The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners recreates the survival aspect of the post-apocalyptic simulator. While killing zombies takes up a portion of your time, it does not take up most of your time. A majority of the game is spent exploring and scavenging supplies. You collect common everyday items that you can opt to break down into supplies once you reach your home base. The game plays in an open world format with a central hub. There’s active time and limited resources. With each passing day the resources get scarcer, while the walkers grow in numbers. With limited time in each day, the player has to make the decision of thoroughly clearing out a h

Review: Pixel Ripped 1995 (PS VR)

Getting Pixel Ripped      Pixel Ripped 1995 takes the player on a journey to a magical time, being a kid in the year 1995. This game within a game has you step into the shoes of David, a young boy who just wants to stay home and play video games. The games are played on a CRT within the virtual space, as various distractions go on around you. Most notably is David’s mom, who is constantly trying to get David to put away the video games and play outside. This creates moments where you must put down the controller and create a real-world distraction to allow you to keep progressing in the game.           The games David plays in Pixel Ripped 1995 are heavily inspired by the most popular games of the era. You can expect to play similar games to Sonic, Zelda, Crash Bandicoot, and a bunch more. The games span the 16-bit era and touch a bit on the 32-bit era, but Pixel Ripped 1995 is not just a childhood simulator, there is an overarching narrative to the game.      Within the video game wor
