Happy New Year everybody! I hope you’re all doing well in light of this past difficult year. Either way, we can at least put it behind us and hope 2021 ends up being better.
Only one month before this year is finally over. About time, huh? Fortunately, it appears that there’s a light at the end of this tunnel…
Yes, it’s been yet another busy month for me. Writing that editorial was a lot of fun, but next month, I’ll try to get some actual game reviews out. Hope you all are doing well!
For the record, I was criticizing Naughty Dog way before it was cool. In fact, it was back in September of 2013 that my extreme disappointment in the first The Last of Us caused me to form strong opinions of the games I played, which, in turn, eventually resulted in the creation of this site, so don’t forget to thank Naughty Dog for making this all possible. And then, seven years later, the sequel managed to disappoint a much larger portion of the audience. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Also known as the one where Red Metal actually does stuff. Hope you all are continuing to do well!
Also known as the one where practically nothing happens. I’ve been pretty busy lately, so I apologize for not getting more articles done. I’ll try to get more done next month.
Also known as the one in which Persona 4: Golden gets a Steam release! That is clearly the best piece of gaming news the medium this month, so if you were curious to check out the game after reading my 18,000-word review, that’s the place to get it.
Yup, that’s right; I’ve been critiquing games for six years by this point. In a normal post, this is where I’d wonder where time went, but it honestly feels like it has been a long time. Hope all of you are continuing to do well in the face of the pandemic.
Also known as the one in which Naughty Dog lost the plot – literally. I won’t go into further detail because I don’t wish to spoil it for those interested, and I insist on not judging a work until I experience it regardless of how much the odds are against it. Seriously, if you are interested in playing The Last of Us: Part II, try to refrain from using social media until it’s released next month.
I hope you’re all doing well out there in the face of this daunting pandemic. To think that nearly one-hundred years after the infamous influenza outbreak of 1918, we’d have another one our hands. Isolation won’t be easy but doing so will pay off in the long term, so remember to take care of yourself.
