The Order has been the subject of some controversy since its launch. Ready At Dawn's first major title on home console after respectable work on the portable God of War: Ghost of Sparta, was seen by many fans as a true testament to the power of the PS4 and a new franchise rife with possibility. But after some initial reviews and a leaked playthrough of the game surfaced, sensationalist articles po... more.

If anyone here is wondering why we haven't put up a review of the new Monster Hunter game, we assure you it's for a very fair reason. Specifically the one set to review it, yours truly, has a little problem in professional integrity: I kind of love the series and any review would basically amount to gushing. So instead of trying to restrain my enthusiasm for some attempt at critical analysis, I ha... more.

Majora's Mask is considered by many to be the darkest installment in the Zelda series. Fifteen years ago, despite solid reviews, it received a pretty mixed reception by fans due to its more unique features, and an oddly cynical condescension since the game basically re-used almost everything, character models, engine, music, items, etc., from the popular Ocarina of Time with some new things sprink... more.

So, Evolve has come out recently, and according to our review, it's a pretty good game to play with friends. But there has been some controversy surrounding its practices, specifically its downloadable content. The game is not even a week old and there are already double-digits worth of DLC across both PSN and Xbox Live, all of which isn't included with the aggressively advertised and pushed Seaso... more.

First person shooters are an interesting thing, no matter how much you try and stand out, they can all kinda feel the same. If you want your game to stand out, you need something dramatic. Enter Turtle Rock Studios and their sci-fi monster hunting action title, Evolve. It’s basically a co-op game with a twist, you and several hunters try to track down and kill a monster before it kills them... a... more.

Okay fellow inmates listen up! Tonight's the night that we are finally going to bust out of this joint, so I hope you are ready because as soon as it's lights out its go time. We can use that shovel you crafted this time to dig our way out, but if that doesn't work we'll just try again tomorrow night. Who knows we could try cutting the fence and making a run for it or even make copies of the guard... more.

Life is Strange is an apt title for French developer DontNod's dip into episodic gaming. It's a smaller production with a much more intimate, personal scale of things, with just enough of a novel supernatural, high sci-fi angle to gain players' attention. It's a departure from their big budget – and in my opinion intellectually vapid and insubstantial – first project, Remember Me, and I'd say ... more.

To some players out there, Grim Fandango was the gold standard of adventure games during the 1990s. It was clever, well-written, had great characters and puzzles, and was considered the last of its kind until Telltale Games revived the genre. Despite its pedigree, the game hasn't been on a new operating system since its premiere 17 years ago, making the game an odd cult item of mythical quality. B... more.

It's very difficult to tell if Techland's projects are going to insult you or impress you. Their games have never exactly been tightly designed or visually amazing, but when they impress it's because there is something oddly novel to them, and when they insult you it's really insulting. For something like Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, there is Call of Juarez: The Cartel. But, it seems that the devel... more.

I’m a pretty big Rugby fan, I coached a season for my sons under 6 team last year, so the prospect of a Rugby title on the Xbox One was an exciting one. Unfortunately it’s an opportunity I feel has been missed by the developers and this could be the most disappointing sports title I’ve ever played. Gameplay At its core the game of Rugby is pretty simple, shift the ball and try to make yo... more.

Nintendo really knows how to give their characters identity outside of their respective franchises. Luigi gets to bust ghosts inside a haunted mansion. Yoshi gets his own adventures where he protects Baby Mario and scarfs down fruit. Donkey Kong protects his own entire island from evil reptiles. And now it's Toad's turn with his very own standalone puzzle game. Does it have enough substance for it... more.

It has been a few months since the launch of Bungie's hyped online shooter, Destiny. If you recall from our review here, we weren't exactly impressed. But with the release of the game's first expansion, a series of patches, and enough time for the hype machine to die down, Destiny seems to digging in for the long haul...at least until the announced sequel comes out. But has Destiny improved since ... more.

Another year and another chance to lay the smack down! And for the first time on a next gen console. It is also the second entry from 2K and it is possibly the best one yet... not counting my fond memories of WWF No Mercy on the N64 anyway. Gameplay It was rumored prior to release there would be a noticeable change in gameplay direction. A few popped up claiming this iteration would be more St... more.

The year of remakes continues! Between The Last of Us, Tomb Raider and Grand Theft Auto 5, this year has seen a lot more of the same, and it seems that Nintendo is no stranger to that trend this year with their Pokemon series. Oddly enough, the remake this year is of their third generation, Ruby and Sapphire, which throughout its near twenty-year history is considered by most of the fandom to be t... more.
