100 Words or Less: An Ode to Glitches in Deus Ex

deus-ex-glitch

My time with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has been… well, in short, a whirlwind. A few of the blood vessels in my eyes are undoubtedly damaged beyond repair. I have most likely developed a life-threatening form of carpel tunnel syndrome in both of my hands. My boyfriend is relatively sure that I am now a deaf mute. Anyway, you get my (exaggerated) point.

By the end of the first entry of the series reboot I was a swashbuckling, dual-pistol-ing, ledge-leaping maestro. The set pieces, the beautiful locales, the lovably illogical story gave Uncharted a run for its money. How do you follow up such a strong origin story? Rise of the Tomb Raider’s answer: Bear fights. That’s how. Readers beware! There’s a chance of minor spoilers below.

Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn

Here are the impressions left by Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. After the first few hours of gameplay of the highly anticipated reboot of Final Fantasy XIV did the FFXIV:ARR prove that SquireEnix can tackle the MMO genre or did it succumb to the failures of previous Final Fantasy MMOs?
