Video gaming has been used as an escape from reality to a fantasy world for decades; one plays the Elder Scrolls games to role-play as axe wielding brutes or mystical sorcerers in a sprawling fantasy landscape rife with dynamic and unique voice acting, sound design, and orchestration.

You may or may not know this, dear reader, but part of the VanriTheRogue persona is the fact that I don’t have emotions. At least, I don’t have strong ones. In an effort to see my emotions, a long time viewer decided to take matters into his own hands. Randomly one day, I received aContinue reading “Review: To The Moon”
We all know how much I love me some horror games. I’m always looking for new games to play, especially from amazing indie developers.
