Unfortunately, I cannot share the same enthusiasm I had for last year’s list in my current mindset. Seeing as I’m still in an unintended semi-hiatus from the blog and the continued pressure of landing an actual full-time job that doesn’t make me want to end myself to secure a proper place in society looming, I don’t feel as chipper these days. Truth be told, I forgot about this until just a few days ago when my mind happened to linger upon the calmer years of KeenGamer’s existence. Nevertheless, sharing my opinion on games (and anything, really) is still a profitable and engaging process for me, so allow me to continue to do so for your viewing pleasure.

This is not going to be a typical post for The Visualist’s Veranda.
Over the years, I’ve become more acclimated to the world of indie games, due primarily to my experience working for KeenGamer. There’s something about the spirit of a really good indie game that makes me enjoy the video game medium even more, particularly seeing first-hand the passion and commitment needed to make something so time-consuming and daunting. Thus, I decided I wanted to make a collection of all the great indie games I’ve played in the last few years, whether for review or not, and chronicle them in a handy, link-heavy package.

Sometimes, there are things you wish to review, but the expectations set by the topic itself make it difficult to reciprocate equal treatment. There have been plenty of games in the past that I’ve come to cherish, games that showed that luscious glimmer of spirit I saw prior to experiencing it. As a reviewer, these are the things I write for, in order to experience that same enthusiasm and passion for the creative process. It can be rare, for a chap as cynical as I, to let that feeling override the mental process. You don’t think about how much something means to you after the fact—you just know.

(Disclaimer: This post will continue as though one is adequately familiar with A Robot Named Fight!. For those unaware, feel free to check out my (albeit outdated) review of the game here, where I go over the basic foundation of the game.) Continue reading “Thoughts on A Robot Named Fight!

Please note that this is not a Top 10 Best Video Games of 2018 list. Rather, this is a list of the best video games I played in 2018, as in it doesn’t have to have been released in 2018 to make it, only that I had to have finished (a majority of) it in 2018.

A disclaimer first and foremost: It has not technically been a year since I’ve started working at KeenGamer, as I was officially hired on the 22nd or 23rd of September, give or take. Though seeing as I don’t believe there will be any other games I may review in the next ten days that would find a place on this list I’ve compiled, I figured I may as well put it out there while it’s still fresh in my head… who am I kidding? I’ve planned this for months. I’m just impatient. Continue reading “Top 10 Favorite Games After One Year with KeenGamer”
While the number of psychological issues brought up in this film and the questions it raises about romantic relationships are intriguing enough, I have little to say about this one. Continue reading “Day Twenty-Eight: The One I Love (MotM 2018)”
