Singing the Praises of Anthem: Early Impressions

Right out of gate, Anthem impresses with its incredible visuals and great audio/visual feedback. Shooting feels great and mobility (in the air and on foot) is really satisfying.

Visualizing a Novel: Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 18.5 (Recap)

This episode is actually perfectly timed. I never got the chance to write about the first fourteen episodes, but I can cover them now. However, the context of what happened isn’t as important as what we lost from the novels, which is a lot of the internal dialogue that better fleshes out the characters. AsContinue reading “Visualizing a Novel: Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 18.5 (Recap)”

Jackquest: Tale of the Sword Review (Xbox One)

“Holy FUDGE!”, I thought as I watched the trailer for Jackquest: Tale of the Sword, “Pixel art? Platforming? GIANT SWORD!?

Visualizing a Novel: Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 17

So, if this cover image doesn’t have you at least questioning things even a little bit… Anyway, last we left off, we had a big cliffhanger of an episode.

It’sContinue reading “Visualizing a Novel: Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 17”
