Dark Souls 2 SOTFS in depth review.

Dark Souls 2 SOTFS in depth review.

I know i’m a bit late to the party, I just recently got Dark Souls 2 SOTFS (Scholar Of The First Sin) on Steam. To start off, I am a big Dark Souls fan.  I love Dark Souls 2 SOTFS, and the series in general, although Dark souls has its drawbacks that are moderately frustrating at times.

The Review

Dark souls 2/SOTFS.. it is a brutal experience, you may have heard from a lot of people that Dark Souls as a whole is a extremely difficult game.  Dark souls 2/SOTFS is filled chock full of rage-inducing fights and moments where you think you are gonna win and then….. SPLAT. “You Died” The words that appear on your screen moments after death, dont weep yet though, all those souls you had are still there, you just have one shot to collect them.if you die they are gone. A new soul retrieval will appear in its place and the process startsd all over again. You also have your health cut down everytime you die, although using humanity will fix it… temporarily.

Combat is pretty great in this game, you may not realize it, but Dark Souls has almost perfect hitboxes. All those times you died when you didnt see the enemy hit you, they actually hit you, i didnt believe it myself either, but the weapon reach in this game is very dangerous to your opponent or vice versa.

Character Creation and Classes are probably my favorite features. I usually play as a Deprived so i have full control over my class.  Other options include Warrior, Knight, Swordsman, Bandit, Cleric, Sorcerer, and Explorer.

Unlike Dark Souls 3, In Dark Souls 2/SOTFS, the repair system is used a lot, you need to be paying attention to item information as it could save your life.  I actually ran through an area before with completely broken armor, and  believe me, it was not fun.

I dont really care for Coop in Dark Souls 2/SOTFS as most people like to troll.  Coop is kinda garbage in my opinion. Phantom summons work just fine.

The game itself is very big in terms of world size. With yons of bosses as well as tons of secrets to find and the plethora of uniquely styled locations and areas.

This game has multiple New Game + modes, from NG+ all the way to New game +10 and beyond. i dontknow how much changes happen in each NG+ but i cant wait to find out.

All in all, there is tons of content and almost limitless replayability.

I highly recommend this game to anyone who loves difficult ARPGs.


Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more reviews.







Ocean Planet Survival (Subnautica) Review

Subnautica, a game that is as merciless as it is unforgiving.  Dropped into an Ocean on a water covered planet, you must face the odds and survive the terrors that lurk in the deep.  After being ejected from the Aurora, your pod crashes into the ocean below.  You must find food and keep hydrated as you attempt to fix the pod.  The rest is up to you, the story is there, although it progresses very slowly.

You must find and scan parts from equipment strewn about in the Auroras crash site.  this will progress the story as you will need this equipment later on. There are also elements of base building which will keep you alive if built correctly.  Keep an eye on your power though. Electricity in equipment and your base will save your life!

I played this game back in very early access and am happy to say it gets a full release this month.  One of the true survivors of early access and also a must play game for anyone who wants a unique survival experience.


I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes survival games because this is a very unique keeper!



My Dishonored 2 review

It’s about time I review my favorite assassin game, Dishonored, specifically, the 2nd one.

I’m not going to delve too much into this review as it is yet another story driven single-player adventure.

Taking place after Dishonored (the first game) you play as either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano during a coup to take control of Dunwall.  Now that you know Emily is actually Corvo’s daughter (you should know if you completed the 1st Dishonored) this story gets to happen. Emily and Corvo are both playable characters, though you can only pick one character for the story.  Depending on who you pick, the other character is frozen into a marble statue and the game begins. I’m not going to spoil anything after that, so Im going to list the pros and cons of this game.


  • Great combat mechanics!
  • Sword and gunplay!
  • Dark powers(Mark of the Outsider)!
  • Execution animations!
  • Semi-open world!
  • Skill tree for powers!
  • Craftable/lootable bone charms with buffs and handicaps!
  • Challenging


  • Minor performance issues(mostly fixed as of now).
  • Map layout is kinda weird/confusing.

All in all, I highly recommend this game even with glitches and minor performance issues, it’s still amazingly fun.


FPS with Amazing Story (Metro: Last Light Redux)

Metro:Last Light was and always will be my favorite single-player first person shooter.

With a gripping story and constant dangers of suffocating on the surface of a post apocalyptic world, although that is only bits and pieces of the game, it only makes it more challenging and fun. There is not really a main enemy in any of the Metro games om the series.

Chronological order: Metro: 2033, Metro: Last Light, Metro: Exodus (Release date slated 2018)

I”m not going to go into much detail because that would spoil the story, so pros and cons will be listed below


  • FPS with survival horror elements!
  • Unique gas mask mechanics!
  • Objectives are written down on a clip board!
  • Awesome weapons with upgrades!
  • Unique Mutants
  • Military Grade Ammo as currency


  • Some Micro-Management skills required
  • Guns are a little clunky in my opinion
  • Map layout confusing at times.

All in all, its a fun game.

BONUS FACT: based off the book series by Dmitry Glukhovsky


Rogue-Like Review of Streets Of Rogue

Rogue-Like Review of Streets Of Rogue

Ahhhhhh, Streets of Rogue, how I love you so!  A charming Rogue-Like that will keep you on the edge of your seat in all its randomly generated glory.

Streets of Rogue (being developed by Matt Dabrowski and published by tinyBuild)  is a randomly generated Grand Theft Auto-esque game with the freedom to be what you want.   Wanna play as Harambe (Gorilla)? How about a soldier? Scientist? Bartender?

Why not make your own custom character? as you play further you can pay chicken nuggets in exchange for traits and items to add to the trait/item pools.

Chicken nuggets are earned by completing floors, leveling up, or completing missions.

It is an amazing game that takes a great concept and puts it into a rogue-lite format.


With a 95% positive overall on steam, its well worth the score.


I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes time wasters or just appreciate good games as a whole.
