Graveyard Keeper!

Recently picked this game up on the Xbox Game Pass and it is a fun play so far. I am still in the early game, figuring out the mechanics and what to do with my time. The art style that they chose works great with the atmosphere of the game. Instead of the basic build up your home and find a wife, here you are building up your graveyard and deciding if you want to serve natural hotdogs or hotdogs made of the dead. I’ll add to this post as I continue, if anyone else has played let me know what you think of the game and some of the decisions you have made. If you have not played and have the game pass I would check this one out.

Unfriended: Dark Web Review

A tolerable POV horror movie that will not give you motion sickness.

Unfriended: Dark Web

A group of friends get together to have their game night over Skype when one of the computers does not belong to one of the players. Once they open some files that should not have been opened, their game night comes to an end.

This film is less cliche than other horror films which makes it watchable. It’s nice to see a semi new approach to the idea of hackers being the antagonist. If you have some free time and want to watch something that does not take all your attention, I will recommend this film.
