Review : Outriders : Logistical Chaos

You can find Seasoned Gaming’s review policy here After being bashed with a variety of Games as a Service (Gaas) titles, it's odd to see our own sensibilities slide into an incomprehensible state. Since the release of titles like Anthem, Destiny, The Avengers, and The Division, we have been conditioned…

Gaming with Anxiety

It was only about a week ago that I finally completed my first Destiny 2 raid. Together with other guardians, we took on The Last Wish, defeating the monstrosity known as Riven. This raid was released back in September of 2018, a bit after the release of the Forsaken expansion.…

Diablo Everywhere

Blizzconline is the latest transformation of Blizzard’s past in-person convention. Going from the energetic, in-person environment to a digital event might seem rather impersonal at times, alas, this seems to be the new normal across the board for now. This year, the major dominating presence that stands out beyond everything…

Dungeons, Dragons, and COVID

Every Sunday, Drew Biscardi and Taylor Marie would prepare their home for a slew of guests. Their friends are greeted by a hearty home-cooked meal, typically chili, soup, or anything that could fit in a large pot. Their table would be adorned with flatware, as well as a whiteboard, books,…

Impressions : Destiny 2 Beyond Light Expansion

I am the biggest sucker for loot-based role-playing games. Classics like Borderlands and Diablo still live in my mind rent free till this day. Even though we have come so far from both of those games, my latest several-year fix has come from Destiny 2. Despite the flaws at initial…

Review : Godfall : All That Shimmers is Trash

You can find Seasoned Gaming’s review policy here My theory about Gearbox as a developer/publisher still stands true after so many years. Since the creation of the company, they have yet to release anything as substantial as the Borderlands series, with the third installation teetering on the more annoying side.…

Opinion : How to Rebuild The Avengers

As it stands, the Avengers initiative failed, with the shimmer lasting just mere weeks. The promises to deliver additional content which was front-loaded as early as E3 2019, has yet to be delivered. By this concept, we can most likely assume that the game has reflected the similar level of…

How to Win Friends and Influence Gamers

I am somewhat of a social person. Even though I greatly appreciate isolation, partnered with a cozy blanket and a video game on a cold winter day, I still yearn for some sort of communication with the outside world. If there is one thing this pandemic has taught me, it…

Let’s Address the Issue of Crunch

I didn’t think that I needed to discuss the concept of crunch. I thought that for years that we all stood on the same side of the line, if lives were affected in any way, that it is a bad thing. No matter what circumstances forced the hands to sign…

Games as a Disservice

Games as a Disservice

After several days of playing Kingdoms of Amalur as a palate cleanser from the bland meal that was Square Enix’s Avengers, I have come to a realization that half of all “Games as a Service” titles suck. I’m not going to candy-coat it, I’m going to be blunt with this…
