Journey Review

I had heard good things about this game, and finally got a chance to play once I received a PS4 system. I was not disappointed in the least.

Your journey starts out as a robed figure wandering the hot desert, always going towards a towering mountain looming in the background. As you uncover the puzzles of your surroundings, you’re accompanied by another of your kind. I’ve played the game twice, and so far have seen the normal red like me.. and then a white robed figure. Either way, you choose whether you want them to come with you or journey alone.

The game has a lot of surprises waiting for the player. I thoroughly enjoyed sliding down the dunes in one section, and then hiding from mechanical monsters in the next. It’s those elements that keep it entertaining, even though the game is short.

The ending is both satisfying and personal. I feel every time you play there’s a different interpretation waiting for the next playthrough. I think it took a couple of plays to understand the meaning of all the symbols appearing on the wall when you reach certain points. I was glad to see there was a different in the symbols if you travel alone or play with your companion.

Overall, would recommend to everyone. It’s well worth a look and time. And the music is excellent!

Pinstripe – First Impression

This is a wonderful and fun game developed by one individual, which took about five years to complete. The voice acting is actually done with the help of popular YouTubers, such as Pewdewpie and Jacksepticeye. I love the music in the game as well. The piano is a favorite instrument of mine, and it just works so well with the feel and style.

The story unfolds as you play Ted, an ex-minister looking for his 3-year-old daughter in the depths of a wintry blizzard. As you uncover clues about Ted’s mysterious past, you start to realize that there’s more to the wintry wonderland than meets the eye. With the help of your faithful dog, you start your journey in hot pursuit of Mr. Pinstripe – to discover the truth and save your daughter.
