PurelyNicole’s Games of the Year 2014

We entered 2014 with new consoles and new games for those consoles. Well, some of us did. I didn’t get my next-gen console until the holidays, and I didn’t want to buy new games for an aging console (other than Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which was designed for last generation (Update: Until Today)).

Played Dragon Age: Inquisition – I Am the One Who Decides the Decisions

Despite my good intentions, I’ve never really given Dragon Age much time. My BioWare time was monopolized by my Mass Effect addiction and the multiple awesome playthroughs that caused.

So instead of… Continue reading

Doombringers and naysayers are littering the forums and game journalism resources because no one really knows what’s going to become of the game industry. It seems the majority is focusing on what publishers, developers, media sources, and even gamers are doing wrong to prevent the game industry from creating stability and a welcoming consumer environment….

You Fools! You Trusted a Bad Guy

The ancient tower loomed over Granseal. During a powerful storm, Slade the Thief removed two jewels from the ancient shrine within. What came next could have been avoided but required heroic feats from a young lad to save Grans Island, and the world, from the Devil King and invading forces of Zeon. Sound familiar? That’s… Continue reading
