Looking to be a soft reboot with a new first-person perspective, as well as a cast of all-new characters, there’s a lot for longtime fans of the series to be worried about.

This has been a long time coming and, if you’ll allow me, I’ll explain how we got here… and why Resident Evil as we know it is dead. Continue reading Resident Evil is Dead

The Ugliest of the Good and the Bad

Opinions are wonderful, aren’t they? We all have our personal likes and dislikes, and whether we know it or not, some are just downright moronic. So, what better way is there to illustrate that point than to flaunt our own idiocy? Let’s start with some games I’m convinced are good, and then I’ll tell you why that game you love is terrible.
