“Gears of War 4” Review

Here’s my full review of Gears of War 4! This game was exceptionally fun. I knew a lot about it before it came out, so I expected to enjoy it — but it honestly surpassed a lot of my expectations, based on the story, the combat, and just retaining that overall Gears spirit.

This review covers quite a bit, including my thoughts on the gameplay, the new weapon the Buzzkill, and the co-op experience. =)

“ReCore” Review

Here is my review of the video game ReCore! Earlier this week I wrote up my early pro/con list about it, and for the most part, my loves and not-so-loves about this game have just intensified the more I’ve played. In this review I talk about what I liked about ReCore, what I thought of the story, and who I’d recommend it for. =)

But lately I’ve been looking for a new sci-fi series to read, and I heard Netflix is making an Altered Carbon show. It’s still very early to know what the Netflix version will be like, but it piqued my interest enough for me to pick up the novel and re-read it.

I’m liking it even more this time around. It’s one of the best sci-fi novels I’ve ever read. But at the same time, there are a lot of things about the book that rub me the wrong way, and they’re more noticeable as I get older and my opinions become stronger. All this has inspired me to write a review!
