    The Wholesome Games community was created in response to the cancellation of gaming events due to the pandemic.

  • The Sega Dreamcast console

    Remembering the Dreamcast

    About two years ago, I worked tech on a video game podcast where none of the hosts knew when the Dreamcast was released. Without having even to flinch, I blurted out, “September 9, 1999.” Dumbfounded, the co-host leaned toward me, “how did you know that?” he said. 12 year old me ate up Sega’s bizarre […] More

  • Behold the Nintendo Playstation!

    Nintendo’s Greatest Mistake

    How times have changed. Where games are available at any given time to download today, no such quality existed in the mid 90s. 12-13 year old me hung around an abandoned firehouse turned community center for children. We played game consoles on the first floor. Sitting at each corner was a different console from NES-N64. […] More

    The Pathless: Free as a Bird

    Besides the preinstalled Astro’s Playroom, The Pathless was the first game I played on the PS5. I had played the developers previous title, Abzû, so I sort of knew what I was getting into here. A minimal tutorial and HUD, along with great visuals were a given. However, I didn’t know how quickly I would become entranced […] More

    The prestigious Game Awards have announced their 2020 nominees for Game of the Year and the selection is…mixed.

    Rooms: The Adventure of Anne & George Review

    When Labo VR released for the Nintendo Switch, I was hopeful that we’d see a flood of games from third-party and indie developers utilising the cheap and cheerful peripheral. Alas, that didn’t really happen. In fact, at the time of writing, only three games on the Switch eshop include LABO VR support. I’ve been keen […] More

    Final Fantasy X: Distinctly Japanese, Universally Relatable

    “This is it. This… is your story. It all begins here.” It’s been some years since I originally played Final Fantasy X, and truth be told, there was little I could recall about it. Replaying it now, I’m shocked at how thought-provoking and impactful its story actually is. Perhaps I was too young to appreciate […] More

    The Retro Charm of Final Fantasy IX

    We’ve come a long way traversing the history of the Final Fantasy franchise so far. From its humble beginnings on the NES, to the next gen beauty of the SNES era games, up to the PSX era entries, the series’ visual flair was ever changing. Some might argue that the Playstation era games (VII through […] More

    Kick back, relax, and have a cupper! This week we bartered with the Devil and lost. Our punishment: Exquisite pain. Gorgeous visuals. Merciless gameplay. Precise controls. Yes, it will break you, but no tears please, it is a waste of good suffering. Plus, Collin finally gets around to playing Resident Evil: Code Veronica X! Johnny […] More
