WWE 2K16- Review
PC Reviews

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 Man Match. Past games let you brawl into WWF New York, and drop the People’s Elbow in Times Square. These matches would make you impatient...

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 1 Review
PC Reviews

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 of five episodes for Minecraft: Story Mode, which is their take on Mojang’s widely known and popular creative game. Unlike the previous games they have...

Review: The Bridge
PlayStation 3 Reviews

With more and more Indy games showing up these past two gaming generations, it takes a lot for one to stand out. Even more so for those with abstract art direction and intriguing puzzles abound, which seem to be more common lately. With games like Limbo and Braid leading the helm, The Bridge is an interesting take on the puzzle genre, which adds an M.C. Escher art style to the mix. While The Bridge was originally released in 2013 on...

Game of Thrones: Episode 2 – The Lost Lords Review
PC Reviews

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 Beskha. In a quick opening scene Asher kills a couple of people who are trying to kill him. He is then informed by his uncle,...

Game of Thrones: Episode 1 – Iron from Ice Review
PC Reviews

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 Stark family are attending the wedding, their soldiers are outside of the castle in their tents, eating and so forth. One of the main characters...

Call of Duty: Ghosts Review
PlayStation 3 Reviews

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.  Yes they get bigger with each entry, but this is one of those cases where bigger does not translate to better. Players take control of Logan Walker, aka generic, voiceless,...

Batman Arkham Orgins Review
Playstation 3

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. It pains me to say that Arkham Origins doesn’t quite measure up to its predecessors. The story for this game is admittedly pretty good. You are two years into Bruce...

Skulls of the Shogun Review
Playstation Vita Reviews

Note: Only the Xbox 360 version of the game was played in preparation for this review. Rarely does a turn-based strategy game draw my attention. I often lack that extra psychological *thing* that it takes to plan turns ahead of time, rather than focusing only on what’s directly in front of me. But then a game like Skulls of the Shogun comes along, and presents its systems in a way that makes vanilla players—like me—can easily get the hang of it. But...

Angry Birds Trilogy Review
Playstation 3

My guess is that you don’t own the Angry Birds Trilogy, but that you have played most of the content before. This is just a re-release of the first 3 Angry Birds games, the original, Rio, and Seasons on consoles and select handhelds. The thing is, this game doesn’t belong on consoles. It started as a mobile game, and should stay a mobile game. The thing is it costs 1300% more than the mobile games, yes, this game costs 40$....

Hitman Absolution Review
Playstation 3

Hitman: Absolution is a very different kind of game from its predecessor Blood Money, a game that I fell in love with just a few months ago, despite its release in 2006. Blood Money heavily emphasized the idea of stalking your pray in plain sight, planning a kill by exploring the intricately detailed sandbox around you, and watching your carefully constructed series of “accidental” events unfold around you. If you don’t want these, though, it can be about finding the...

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 marks the 20th edition of EA’s best-selling football franchise. With this anniversary come some pretty gigantic changes. As should be with any sports title, the most obvious changes made were...

Retro City Rampage Review
Playstation 3

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 and innovation be classified as “retro”? Retro City Rampage is one of those games that stands up to the challenge. Does it succeed or does it fall flat like the...

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 it one of the best games of 2009. AC took a coastal ride when it turned into a yearly franchise, churning out Brotherhood and Revelations. Both games were completely competent,...

Happy Wars Review
XBOX 360

Happy Wars is a crazy castle storming multiplayer game, in which 15 players on each side make it their goal to break into their enemy’s castle. It was quite an experience to play on the Xbox 360, but the big question is: was it a good experience, or a terrible one? Players get their choice of three classes to use in battle: the Mage, Warrior, or the Cleric. Each of them has their own perks that try to draw you...

The Walking Dead Episode 4 Review
Playstation 3

It’s been a very long, painful journey for Lee (AKA myself), Clementine, and Kenny thus far. Kenny is still in an angry shock over the abrupt loss of his family just two days prior. Our group has a few new members–Omid and Christa–who seem to be fitting in well, even if Christa can be pretty demanding and hard to deal with at times. We’ve arrived in Savannah in hopes of finding a boat to get us out of this miserable...

Worms Revolution is the type of game that’ll leave you intrigued and wanting more. It sets you in an environment that you control and are capable of destroying to use to your advantage. In the beginning you go through the tutorial giving you the basic run down of the game and how it works; showing how in-depth it actually goes. The controls for this game are simple and fitting; Left and Right arrow keys to adjust which direction you’re going,...

Nights Into Dreams HD Review
Playstation 3

Many say that the most iconic dreams are those which incorporate one of mankind’s oldest and deepest desires…the gift of flight. Nights into Dreams paints a colorful landscape for this desire and then gives you complete, unfiltered control over it. A classic game that largely helped to define a console has found its way to the PSN. It’s a simple HD port of course, but nonetheless PS3 owners can now enjoy this legend of old.   Like many past games...

Castle Crashers is a game that has been out for a few years already on the 360 and the PS3, but now it’s available on Steam! Crashers was originally an amazing experience to enjoy on consoles, but now PC gamers can spend countless hours playing through CC over and over again with every character. Castle Crasher’s gameplay is so relaxing. It’s simple: Go left to right, save every princess, and beat the daylight out of anything that moves; except pooping...

Dust: An Elysian Tale is the last game in 2012’s Summer of Arcade, and it finishes the series with a bang. Every year there is a game that stands out from the rest and Dust is that game this year. Despite being a game designed by a solo person, it’s wonderful art design and crisp controls manage to raise it above the few minor complaints I had with the game   Combat in Dust starts from minute one and doesn’t...
