The Sage Abyss

Of Challenge And Demon’s Crests

31 Mar 2014

It’s good that there’s a clear niche market for difficult video games. On top of that now more than ever it seems there’s a clear divide between games that implement good design features with unique challenges the players learn from. Instead of, you know, just arbitrary increases in damage and health and such. That’s why […]

The Not So Secret Secret Of Santa Vittoria

sage

It looks like the classic film kick isn’t ending anytime soon. Which I find perfectly fine since this journal takes on an entirely new shape and form. Ish. Anyway.

Me and Myst

10 Feb 2014
sage

Is it wrong that a lot of my practical science knowledge was taught to me by playing Myst? I’m actually kind of serious on this one. I don’t know where Myst sits in the great hierarchy of video games as I rarely ever see any kind of tribute to the game. I mean, I’ve found […]
