Now I understand this; not everyone is a nerd/geek, especially in the field of video-games. But for the few that exist in this music/sports-driven school, here is your solace (at least for the video-game geeks). I’m Evan, and I want to chat about my favorite thing: video-games. I’m a huge nerd, and have played a bunch of games. I don’t play much now, but I watch some on YouTube. I will NOT be covering horror games, go play them yourself if you are curious.

Anyways, the first game I will be covering today is the very popular game Undertale. It was released on September 15th, 2015. What’s so special about Undertale? Well: charming characters, rich story with some secrets here and there, and a unique kind of game-play. After all, it’s called the RPG where you don’t have to kill anyone. Unlike traditional RPG’s where it is implied that you slay monsters and enemies, in Undertale you have to option to instead strike a conversation with monsters and talk them out of fighting you. It’s called the Pacifist Run and everyone loves and adores you in that path. Again, it’s only an option. Should you decide to be a cold-hearted killer and slay everyone in your path, the characters will fear you and evacuate the area. Whatever you do, make sure you want to do that Run of the game. Honestly if you like RPG games that suck up a lot of time, I recommend Undertale completely. If you don’t have the computer to play the game or the money on Steam to buy the $10 game, then I recommend using that magic device in your pocket to watch MANY of the Let’s Plays on YouTube of Undertale.

That about wraps it up for this, I don’t want to write a lot about this game. It’s one of those things that you have to play/watch for yourself to truly know it and love it. Plus if I write more the spoilers will spill, and that can’t happen on a review, now can it? 😉

Good luck on your ventures!
