Oh super interesting to see Borderlands 3 here. Guess I will hold off on buying it on Xbox, games appearing on Humble Bundle are usually a sign of them heading to Game Pass  soon enough.  Read more

Outer Wilds is the only answer I can give, even though I absolutely love other games and moments and wish I can relive them but Outer Wilds stands out as a genre defining singularity, I could experience real joy watching a mass Effect TV show, or reading another Halo Novel but Outer Wilds is Unique as only works as an Read more

Outer Wilds
the whole point of the game is about the discovery of every clue that will lead you to understand what’s happening and it’s fantastic all the way through. Unfortunately that feeling can only be experienced once :(

Just like Obra Dinn, Outer Wilds is a mystery game (IN SPACE!) that fits this bill perfectly. Since it’s purely an exploration game where the mysteries are intuitively designed, the backseater can feel very included by actively helping to solve the mystery and share in the joy of discovery without ever having to

This is a weird one, but Outer Wilds fits this PERFECTLY. Put the more experienced gamer behind the “wheel” and have the less experienced player give all the instructions and solve all the mysteries.

I submit the Zero Escape series. The first ever games I played with my current fiancé. Who had never played games before. Heavily story based with a story that I would describe as extremely engaging. The escape room puzzles help alleviate monotony that might happen with other visual novels and are a great little game Read more

Hades hands down. Roguelikes in general are perfect for this, but Hades is the most approachable for anyone new to the genre and it kicks ass. Amazing story, characters, but above all else—combat. The game feels fantastic. It’s perfect for getting single run in when you just have 10-20 minutes, but be careful. You may Read more

Alienware AW3420DW 34-inch 3440x1440 120 Hz. I have 2 of these monitors and got them for around $800 each. They aren’t cheap. This isn’t the current version of this screen. The new one is even better according to reviews, but I don’t own it yet. At only 4,953,600 pixels compared with 8,294,400 pixels on a 4k display -

I have me the LG UltraGear 27" 4K 144Hz (27gn950-b). I adore the crap out of it, and use it for everything from gaming to movies to animation and film editing work.

It’s a little older now, but I LOVE my LG 27GN950-B. It’s every bit as good as Joe’s Ultragear selection, but with 4k resolution and (good enough) HDR. The colors are vibrant and accurate, it can get up to 160hz with a firmware update, is the perfect size for my desk, and goes so, so well with a high end NVIDIA 3000
