Battleborn Review

Gearbox Software has come a long way over the past years. The company made a name for itself with PC mods and the company hit it big the Borderlands series. Does the company still have the ability to create a new game title? We find out with my review of Gearbox’s new title, Battleborn? The…

McDroid Review

Many tower defense game seem simple and laid out. They tend to follow a basic formula in terms of gameplay. Build defenses, upgrade your forces, and watch the enemy walks into a gauntlet of defensive attacks. My initial mindset was, “If you played one tower defense game, you played them all.” McDroid takes a bit…

Gunscape Review

Gunscape is a first person shooter and world building hybrid combining familiar elements of Minecraft and contemporary shooters such as Wolfenstein 3D and Doom. Solid gameplay mixed with an easy to use level creator makes for a fun game that allows players to jump right in and create single player, co-op, and multiplayer deathmatch arenas…

Resident Evil Zero HD

In a world where the line is often blurred between true survival horror and action adventure, Resident Evil Zero HD is a breath of nostalgic, fresh air. Bringing back the look and feel of classic Resident Evil survival horror with updated 1080p graphics and trophy/achievement support, this HD remaster takes an existing good game and…

WWE 2K16- Review

Over the past decade, Wrestling games and their fans have been stuck. Given that developers have tossed back and forth between the idea of simulation and arcade style games. Dating back all the way to WWF Wrestlefest, these games have been traditionally brawlers/fast paced games which didn’t feel well set for a 60 minute Iron…

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 1 Review

Telltale Games has had quite the busy year so far—they finished up their newest episodic story with Tales From The Borderlands while the upcoming season finale to Game of Thrones:A Telltale Games Series is coming this November. It seems that the team at Telltale is not done yet this year as we got the first…

Tales from the Borderlands Episode 4 Review

The Penultimate episode to the series is closing things nicely. The Tales from the Borderlands series of games, if you read my reviews you know, is consistently entertaining and fun.  Each episode so far has provided something unique in terms of story and gameplay that always keep the episode from getting boring or tedious.  I…

Zenzizenzic Review

Zenzizenzic is definitely a game that is as hard to play as it is to say. I’m not the biggest fan of shooters and less so for shoot ‘em ups, so I didn’t know what to think going into it. I was pleasantly surprised. There isn’t any kind of background story to say why the…

The Witcher 3 Review

2015 is a big year for gamers. So many games filled with potential, coming both from the AAA and indie scene, are on their way. One of the most anticipated ones, “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”, is finally out. This AAA, high fantasy RPG aimed to emerge us in its beautiful, massive world filled with…

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…

Avernum 2 Crystal Souls Review

Having not played the predecessor of Avernum 2 Crystal Souls, I went into this game without any real expectations. It is a TBS, RPG indie game. Initially I had thought that it would be similar to a watered down version of Final Fantasy, but that was not the case. Avernum 2 Crystal Souls takes place…

Game of Thrones: Episode 2 – The Lost Lords Review

The game takes place in various locations Ironrath, Yunkai, Kings Landing and The Wall. If you are a fan of the show, the game offers comfort in the story style you are familiar with but has enough differences to stand on its own. The episode starts you off in Yunkai, with Asher with his sidekick…

Game of Thrones: Episode 1 – Iron from Ice Review

I will say this for those who have not watched the show from where the story starts off at, this game will be a major spoiler. So before playing the game I suggest watching the show before playing. The story takes place outside the palace where the Red Wedding takes place. While members of the…

Space Engineers Review

WARNING: Space Engineers is an Early Access game on Steam. Early Access games are games avaliable for purchase, that are not completely finished, yet playable. Not all Early Access games are finished, and some developers completely abandon on these games. Space Engineers is one of the more unique building games that I’ve come across. Many…

Hyphen Review

*Note: I did not finish Hyphen due to the games extreme difficulty. I finished roughly 2/3’s of the game.   Hyphen is an Indie game created by a studio called Far Space Games. When I received this review, I had no idea what to expect. Little did I know that I had accepted to review…

Ascendant Review

One commonly used phrase, “rouge-likes,” has been thrown around a lot over the last two years or so.  So it was only a matter of time before a game like Ascendant came along.  A game that is so frustratingly difficult, that I only made it through the first couple of levels. There is nothing inherently…

Knightmare Tower Review

Fast, fun and simple; is probably the easiest way to describe Knightmare Tower.  The story is minimal; you are a knight who must battle the enemies of a dark tower and save several princesses along the way.  Although it sounds uninteresting, the story really doesn’t matter anyways.  The addictive, vertical-scrolling, gameplay will keep you coming…

Ionball 2: Ionstorm Review

The time I spent with Ionball 2 made me think about how much fun I used to have with games like Brick Break. Ionball 2 takes that very same formula of you trying to break all the “bricks” (in the case of this game the bricks are robots), with a paddle and a fast moving…

Sid Meier’s Civilization V – Review

I have never played a *Civilization game prior to jumping into **Civ V.  To be honest, I don’t have much time playing strategy games either, but the series has always intrigued me and been in my backlog for a while now.  I was told by some friends that I will lose dozens of hours of…
