One Hour Tour: Resident Evil 5

Welcome to a special One Hour Tour! Well…a near four hour tour to be exact. For the past year or so, I’ve always wanted to do a long stream of a game that I enjoy; so I opted to do a game that I’ve done so many times that I figured it’d be an easy thing: Resident Evil 5. Now, at first I wanted to do a new playthrough from scratch, but considering this could’ve taken upwards to 8 hours (or more), I opted to use a previous save where I had unlocked everything.

Disclaimer: Please note that I’ve backed the Kickstarter campaign for over 500$ (CAD) in 2015, however this opinion piece remains unbiased, as I’ll touch both pros and cons of the game.

Before I left for work, I managed to download the game on both my PS4 and Xbox One. Then I had...

One Hour Tour: SSX 3

Welcome to a new One Hour Tour! This time, I’ll be taking you guys down memory lane with some SSX 3. When Microsoft revealed this game as part of the backward compatible program, I was so happy. My hype level went through the roof; yes it’s a 15 year old game, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s the still the best snowboarding game ever made. And unsurprisingly, this game has aged well very well. The mechanics are solid and responsive; it’s also addicting. When I first started recording this session, you’ll be able to see how sentimental I...
