Final Fantasy X HD Review

When first released for the Playstation 2, Final Fantasy X was a drastic departure for the series.  The series was taken into many new directions.   Non-linearity was fundamental to the franchise, and it is partially the reason why so many gamers loved the early iterations, yet FFX is quite linear...

Dragon Dogma: Dark Arisen Review

During the nineties and the early two thousands, Capcom was one of the most prominent developers in the video game industry.  However, after their controversial DLC decisions, the complete destruction of the Resident Evil franchise, and a slew of bad hits, Capcom paled in comparison to its former self.  So...

Call of Duty: Ghosts Review

I have a long standing, love or hate, relationship with the Call of Duty franchise.  On one hand, I think that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is one of the most important and influential games in history.  Yet, every Call of Duty since has failed to capture anything similar. ...

Mass Effect Review

Originally published for the Xbox 360 in 2007, five years later, Mass Effect finally arrived to the PlayStation 3 in December of 2012. During this span, it seemed like Microsoft would not abandon its stranglehold of the original game, even after the second and third iteration found its way onto...

The Arkham series of Batman games has shown us a bunch of things. Batman can punch with a bomb on his fist without hurting his hand, Bane can withstand being pummeled by the Batmobile, A ripped up cape can still glide, and, most importantly, Batman games can actually be good....

Beyond Two Souls Review

Quantic Dreams is at it again. The studio that brought you Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy developed another original story telling game called Beyond: Two Souls. As a fan of this developer’s previous titles, I regret to tell you that not only does Beyond not raise the bar; it almost...

The Last Of Us Review

The Last of Us has caused me to come to a conclusion which I have never been able to come to video game wise; The Last of Us is the best game I have ever played. This wasn’t an easy thing to decide on, but this game is a true...

Big Sky Infinity Review

Fast-paced “Bullet-Hell” shooters rarely provide incentive to keep playing after you’ve claimed the top of your respective friend’s leaderboard. The fundamental design of them suggests that you’re going to die, and you’re going to die a lot, but the only way to improve is to learn enemy patterns and try...

FIFA 13 Review

Being a massive football fan, upon hearing I was given the chance to review FIFA 13, I quite literally jumped at the opportunity. Also, as the only guy who has a lot of knowledge on the subject of football I was a shoe in for the job.   FIFA 13...

Retro City Rampage Review

The word “retro” is thrown around a lot in this generation. By definition, Retro is typically an aged or outdated style, fashion, mode, etc. Anything from more than 15-20 years is typically considered “retro”. Sometimes ideas challenge that definition and present the question: Can a modern game with modern ideas...

Assassin’s Creed 3 Review

After five Assassin’s Creed games over the past five years, it’s surprising how little has changed in retrospect. The original AC was very methodical and repetitive, but it introduced a new kind third-person movement system and impressive tech. AC2 revamped the formula and addressed most of its glaring issues, making...

Tokyo Jungle Review

Tokyo Jungle sets out to do a very specific thing, and does it very well. It’s very much a Japanese game, and doesn’t care who knows it. Unlike some recent Japanese games that try to cater to every Western audience in its design, Tokyo Jungle embraces its insane premise and...

Borderlands 2 Review

In late 2009, Borderlands was released to the fans gripping them with exciting co-op and as many guns as you can imagine. While not a perfect game by any means, Borderlands built up a good following and had many successful DLC packs, allowing for a sequel to be released. Fast...
