Maurice Pogue's Reviews

Since picking up an NES controller in 1985 at the age of 2, Maurice and video games have been inseparable. While most children aspired to be lawyers, doctors, or engineers (at the behest of their parents), he aspired to write for publications such as EGM, PC Gamer, PC Accelerator, and Edge. After achieving ABD status in English at MSU, Maurice left academia and dedicated his writing to his lifelong passion. He is currently the Video Game Editor at Geeks Under Grace.

Blasphemous is not just a video game; it is a digital anthropological artifact, elevating it to the best "Christian" game that I have ever played.

8.5 / 10.0 - Black Future '88
Dec 5, 2019

The novelty of the 80's throwback aesthetics makes Black Future '88 worthy of a purchase, if not also for the fact that it is the best shooter I have played in 2019.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Outer Worlds

If you enjoy deep engaging stories and strong RPG elements or science fiction. I completely recommend the Outer Worlds, as it is more than Fallout in Outer Space.

Oct 25, 2019

Many games claim to be inspired by the likes of FTL, but few actually manage to do its legacy justice like Alt Shift's Crying Suns.
