MG Reviews ‘Firewatch’

February 10, 2016 | Posted in Reviews, Video Games | By

2016 is shaping up to be a pretty good year for video games. There are a ton of hot anticipated titles coming out in the next few months, but the first big release, ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’ has already dropped. I have yet to play it, but I hear its better than the 2013 revamp, and I really enjoyed that one, so I imagine this one will more than satisfy. ‘XCOM2’, as well as ‘Unravel’, and the latest non-mainstream Assassin’s Creed game have released as well; good for them, but ‘Firewatch’ has been on my immediate short-list ever since it’s E3 debut, so lets get to it. FYI: Spoilers ahead…

A Completely Biased Review of The Near Future by I Fight Dragons

December 5, 2014 | Posted in Reviews | By

(12-5-2014-12:20am) Bleary-Eyed, I struggle to contain myself as the files navigate from their repository to my computer; zipping through miles of wires, slowly layering bit upon bit of compressed container until, despite my slow internet connection, The Near Future by I Fight Dragons download finally completes, a mere double click away, and a staggering week ahead of the public release. This is the album that I had eagerly backed on Kickstarter nearly 1.5 years ago. This is the album that raised $115,000 of it’s $20,000 goal; ~575% funded. This is the album that saw Bill leave. This is the album that almost ended I Fight Dragons. My relationship with this album was love/hate… until I listened to it. This is now my favorite IFD album.

If you aren’t a fan of I Fight Dragons, then you probably shouldn’t be here. TLDR; buy this album. Read more →
