I Hate That I Can't Love Destiny 2

Destiny 2, once you strip away, well, everything that constantly goes wrong with it, is a fun game. I always try to remind myself of that whenever I'm disappointed. The fumes of optimism are what usually keep me trying the game over and over again, because I truly, truly want to find something to love. I think it's been long enough though, and that I've had enough. Across six years and two games, I can firmly say, I don't enjoy Destiny 2 as much as I should, and the blame for that lies firmly with the decisions made that keep holding it back, time and time again.

It's Shark Week in Valorant

Valorant has finally launched after a month of people wringing their hands and salivating at the thought of a beta key. Now you and your friends can get thoroughly embarrassed by the CS:GO sharks with 20,000 hours. Because Riot's premiere new FPS launched without a ranked mode, there is a pretty clear skill imbalance of new players who are eager to try out another game from Riot against the aforementioned sharks and the results are...not pretty.

I Think I'm A Yu-Gi-Oh Fangirl Again

If you had told me that, in order to combat quarantine boredom, I would be playing Yu-Gi-Oh, a game I have not played since I was thirteen, I probably would have laughed. But, here I am. I've spent the past few days playing Yu-Gi-Oh, and having the time of my life. The reason? I think I'm in love with the Harpie Sisters.

Wastelanders Is A Fine Time To Try Fallout 76

Before we begin, I think I should make sure we're on the same page. If you're of the opinion that Fallout 76 is a terrible mess of a game, you spit on Bethesda's grave, or anything similar, then this article isn't for you. Your opinion isn't wrong, but this won't be the Bethesda vitriol piece you want it to be. Not to say there is not ample to criticize them for, but that's not what I want to talk about here. I want to talk about what Wastelanders does to the original flawed Fallout 76 experience. And the answer is a lot, but sometimes not enough.
