Q & A With Simpleek — The Bipolar Gamer

First Few Hours With Neo: The World Ends With You

Of all the video games to come out of the 2021 season Neo: The World Ends With You is by far the highest on my list of games I’ve been looking forward to play. Now that the game is fully released, I have spent a good many hours diving back into Shibuya and the Reapers’ Game.

Saints Row Reboot: Why I’m Okay With A Game Reset

No matter what form of entertainment you’re into we are constantly inundated with reboots of films, TV shows, and video games of originals that did well at the time they were released. There’s this sense of going back to what’s familiar, to invoke a sense of nostalgia for something that brought us a lot of joy and comfort. While it’s nice to revisit something from the past, relying too heavily on it hinders the chance for something new. But not all reboots are necessarily a bad thing when there’s a chance to approach something from a different angle. In the case of the recently announced Saints Row reboot, there’s an opportunity to present something new while keeping some things the same.

Tomb Raider: A Thrilling Story Of Survival And How A Legend Was Born

Whether you’re a gamer or not Lara Croft has been one of the most recognizable video game characters since her first introduction to gamers in 1996’s Tomb Raider, and movies based on the games, starring Angelina Jolie, followed in 2001. Crystal Dynamics’s 2013 game Tomb Raider, and published by Square Enix, sought to refresh the series by giving Lara an origin story, and serves as a wonderful entry point for those who may not have ever played a Tomb Raider game before.

GRIS: A Deeply Moving And Affecting Video Game On Grief And Depression

The 2018 game Gris by Spanish developer Nomada Studio, and published by Devolver Digital, is one of those games that will stand out in your mind as a uniquely crafted game full of beauty and emotional depth.

A Promising Sneak Peek: Neo – The World Ends With You Demo

When I know there’s a video game I’ll want to play I rarely bother with the demo. The purpose of a demo is to sample a game you’re potentially interested in but not quite sure if you should get. But in the case of Square Enix’s upcoming Neo: The World Ends With You, the sequel to 2007’s The World Ends With You, it was too good of an opportunity to pass on getting an earlier feel of the game. From what I’ve experienced so far I’m now more than ever eager to continue playing it.

Cyberpunk 2077: A Video Game That Could Have Been So Much More

The feeling you get when you reach the end of a video game can be exciting and satisfying. Or unsatisfying if the ending wasn’t what you expected. After spending seven long months on Cyberpunk 2077, I witnessed one of many possible endings the story could have. While the ending I got had some really good moments, it wasn’t the emotional payoff I had hoped it would be. I’ll try to keep my discussion of the game as spoiler free as possible.

Waiting For The Next Job: The Downside Of Finishing Nearly All Side Quests In A Game

Being one step closer to finishing a video game often brings a mix of emotions. There’s excitement at finally knowing how everything ends and what the fate of your character will be, but there’s also a little bit of sadness for that end of the journey.

Playing Cyberpunk 2077 for me means deferring all main story quests in favor of doing all of the side missions to stretch out the game a little longer. Now that I’m almost done playing the game this had some unintended consequences I hadn’t thought about.

Coming Out Of Fashion Hibernation: The Styles I’ll Be Sporting This Summer

As parts of the world slowly reopen people are re-emerging from a year of self-isolation and social distancing. Everyone is eager to party and mingle like it’s 2019. With restaurants, events, and travel no longer off limits, now is the time for everyone to step out of the house in more than just sweats. As the second half of the year appears to be a salvageable one for most, it has been the perfect time to start dusting off some outfits that have been in storage since last year and show them off as you brunch with friends or catch a live concert. Here are some of the styles I plan on wearing throughout the rest of summer.
