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...

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...

Z-Run Review

Oh, Z-Run, I can honestly say that I was excited to get to play this game.  A nice new Indie game for my PS Vita that features zombies and a decent but simple concept of getting from point A to point B.  Sadly though it’s nothing but that, a nice...

inFamous: Second Son Review

Even though I didn’t enjoy it as much as others, the Infamous series has always interested me. Putting players into the role of a modern-day superhero, the original Infamous was built on a pretty solid foundation. The sequel made a number of improvements, but the game still didn’t reach its...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

Bound by Flame Review

Some of my favorite games, such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire, allow you to choose between good and evil. More importantly, those choices between good and evil affect the story of the game. Not many games share this characteristic, so when I heard about...

Doctor Who: The Adventure Games Review

As a big Whovian myself, I can happily say that the Doctor Who Adventure Games will satisfy any hunger for content, that any lover of the Doctor might be having lately. The game has been out for a while, in an episodic format, but all of the episodes have now...

Lone Survivor, a game by Jasper Byrne, is an awesome indie survival horror game originally developed for the PC in 2012 and released later on the PlayStation 3 and the PS Vita in 2013 under the title Director’s Cut, which was then re-release as a free update on the PC...

Game Name: Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes Developer: Konami Genre: Stealth/Action It’s been 16 years since Metal Gear Solid was released on the PlayStation and boy has Hideo Kojima taken us for a ride. What started out as a simple adventure has spiraled to an out of control globe spawning...

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...
