Matt Shiflet

My name is Matthew, and I’m an avid gamer. Video games and writing are my two passions. After graduation, I plan to enter the gaming industry as a news writer for a gaming trade publication or a public relations specialist for a publisher. I enjoy playing many different genres of games (though I’m horrible at RTS and brawlers). I try to diversify what I play so I can take in many different ideas, cultures, game and art designs, and aspects of gaming to appreciate it better. I’m a thinker, I love to learn, and I’m here to bring you the latest news and share my opinions through the occasional editorial.

Pyre Review

Every once in awhile, a game comes along that exceeds all expectations. For me, that was Supergiant Games’ 2014 title Transistor. To this day, it’s one of my all-time favorite games. So when I say that the studio’s latest effort, Pyre, is just as good as (and in some ways better than) Transistor, take note. Pyre once again defied all my expectations and has cemented its place as another personal f...[Read More]

SUPERHOT VR Review

SUPERHOT VR, more than any other game I’ve ever played in VR, has the ability to make the player feel like a total boss. If you’ve ever wanted to pull off that slow-mo scene from The Matrix, then SUPERHOT VR is the game for you. The gameplay is intense and with a buttery smooth flow, even if the mechanics and motion tracking have some flaws. Nonetheless, the game is certainly worth the price tag a...[Read More]
