Views on VR Gaming

Before attending E3, I had very negative views on Virtual Reality gaming. The concept is appealing, sure, but it seemed impractical and almost silly with the technology I had seen. Headsets were clunky and embarrassing, quality was abysmal, games that played on it were boring and sloppy, and a plethora of other problems. E3 has…

Duck Game Review

There have been many games that can accurately call themselves “Duck Shooters”. The Duck Game puts a twist on this as you are a duck who shoots other ducks. This platform/shooter is definitely not an everyday kind of game. Normally I would try to summarize the story of a game I am reviewing, but to…

Star Wars Battlefront Hands On

Imagine yourself playing EA’s Star Wars Battlefront as early as next week. That’s right, you read correctly. EA has announced that some lucky players will get a brief, hands on experience with their latest Star Wars Battlefront entry. Two studios, EA Canada and EA Redwood Shores will be hosting playtests for the upcoming game on…

My Dream Review

MyDream is a voxel based community construction game. Which really means it’s like Minecraft if I’m being honest; at least in its presentation. As the market is flooded with voxel based games trying to be the next Minecraft, it can be hard for any diamonds in the rough to not get lumped in with the…

PAX East 2015 – Pollen: Oculus Rift

I had the opportunity to sit down with Olli Sinerma, who is the co-founder of Mindfield Games and play the demo of Pollen. After getting the Oculus Rift head gear on, Olli explained to me how to use the controller and navigate through the game. Pollen at the moment is only a PC game and…

PAX East 2015 – Oculus

I had the opportunity to go to the Oculus booth and try out their upcoming new virtual reality headsets. Oculus has two different systems to try at their booth. The first one is using the Oculus Rift head gear in a room for the 360 degree effect. The second one is using the Samsung Gear…

Surgeon Simulator Review

This is a game that starts with complete frustration and eventually turns into useless skills that you will never use anywhere else. I started playing this game because I saw it as a challenge, but I can’t really say whether or not I succeeded in that challenge or whether it was worth it or not.…

Dragon Age Inquisition Review

The Dragon Age series is one that has a lot of mixed reviews from many of the people that have played them. Some state that the gameplay from the two previous games differ greatly and I, personally, much prefer Dragon Age: Origins to Dragon Age II. Much like how one of the previous two, cannot…

Tales From The Borderlands: Episode 1 – ZerO Sum Review

Going into the game, I was a little hesitant. Not because I was not a Borderlands fan, not because I was not a TellTale fan, but because I was worried how the two, radically different elements would work together. There are so many ways this game could have went wrong, but I’m happy to say…

New Details On Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series

Based on the award-winning HBO television drama series, Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series tells the story of House Forrester.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

With so many games this year disappointing fans all across the board, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor started off as a game that most people labeled as an “Assassins Creed Clone” and ignored it. But then we are introduced to the nemesis system and everyone changed their minds and started to pay attention. This made Middle-Earth:…
