  • Five Reasons You Should Play Mario Kart 8’s DLC

    0 CommentsPosted by on November 25, 2014 under Feature Articles
    To those few but dedicated Wii U lovers out there, Mario Kart 8 came out with the first of two planned packs of DLC. Since this is review season and the holidays are right around the corner, in lieu of an official review, I'm just going to be upfront and tell you why I think, in no particular order, the pack is just plain fun and worth going back to the wacky kart racer. Old Tracks Have Come... more.
  • Release Now, Patch Later Attitude isn’t Doing Us Any Favors

    0 CommentsPosted by on November 16, 2014 under Feature Articles
    In case you haven't read recently, Assassin's Creed: Unity is kind of a buggy mess. Graphical glitches and framerate problems have been reported across both PS4 and Xbox One versions. Ubisoft have officially apologized for releasing the game in such a state and are currently working around the clock to fix and update the experience. In some ways, this is a good sign. Assassin's Creed is a very po... more.
  • Assassin’s Creed: Unity Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on November 16, 2014 under Featured, Playstation, PS4 Reviews
    I desperately want to like Assassin's Creed: Unity. Ubisoft's popular historical fiction sandbox series has always, despite ups and down throughout the years, been able to make something technically novel that can keep my attention for many hours. Yet, despite the many improvements to the formula, Unity somehow manages to be not just a poor next-gen experience but one of the weaker installments in... more.
  • Bayonetta 2 Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 29, 2014 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    In 2009, Platinum Games' Bayonetta became one of the newest benchmarks of high adrenaline action brawler games and a pleasant mainstream success for the team. It didn't sell as much as the newest Call of Duty but thanks to some watertight combat and an entire marketing campaign showing off Bayonetta, both in terms of sex appeal and her ability to kick tail, an audience came. When you have very elo... more.
  • The Legend of Korra Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 24, 2014 under Featured, Playstation, PS4 Reviews
    The Legend of Korra being produced by Platinum Games should be a match made in heaven. You have the source material of one of the most popular and entertaining animated martial arts fantasy shows ever combined with the skill and mayhem of the studio that brought us brawling masterpieces like Bayonetta and God Hand. And with an original story written by the creators of the show and sold at a discou... more.
  • Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Xbox 360 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 18, 2014 under Featured, Xbox, Xbox 360 Reviews
    Borderlands has always been a guilty pleasure of a series for me. The loot crazy FPSRPG has always had a great mix of diverse weaponry, an absolute dedication to player agency and customization – feel free to break the game however you like, and surprisingly sharp writing and storytelling (meme humor notwithstanding). For numbercrunching RPG nuts and fans of shooting fifteen different flavors of... more.
  • Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 9, 2014 under Featured, Playstation, PS4 Reviews
    Shadow of Mordor puts me in a very precarious position as of writing. I'm a fan of high-fantasy fiction and like most, enjoy the Lord of the Rings, even Peter Jackson's ongoing adaptation of The Hobbit. I've been craving an experience on my now current generation console that flexes the new hardware in ways that isn't just eye-candy wrapped around shallow content. And on the surface it looks like... more.
  • Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 3DS Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 8, 2014 under 3DS Reviews, Featured, Nintendo 3DS
    Nintendo might have written themselves into a corner with Smash Bros. on 3DS. Being released before the mascot based brawler's premiere on the Wii U, this handheld version, a first for the series, has a lot of content that wouldn't be out of place on a full console release. It retains the core of what made this franchise last since the 90s and manages to improve upon it, polishing it to a mirror s... more.
  • Hyrule Warriors Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 2, 2014 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    When Hyrule Warriors was announced, I tilted my head in confusion. One of the most beloved fantasy adventure franchises in all of gaming was going to get a spin-off in the vein of the famously dismissed button masher that is the Dynasty Warriors series? It sounded like a stunt and an excuse for fan service more than a fresh idea from the Big N. Fast-forward to the game's release and it is exactly... more.
  • Destiny Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on September 14, 2014 under Featured, Playstation, PS4 Reviews
    Destiny seems like it should be amazing. It has the talented people at Bungie at the helm. It has the marketing push of Activision and has been billed as “from the creators of Halo and the studio that brought you Call of Duty.” The story is planned to be supported for the next ten years through expansion packs and updates. It also has had what some consider the most astronomical budget for a v... more.
  • Teslagrad Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on September 14, 2014 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    It's easy to forget with that other game that came out recently that the Wii U is still staying relevant this console generation. In addition to maintaining their core franchises with consecutive hit after consecutive hit, Nintendo have also been going out of their way to mend their unfavorable reputation with certain independent studios. This is causing some pretty interesting and experimental pr... more.
  • Is Feminism in Gaming Really That Dangerous? Why We Should Be Embarrassed With What Happened to Anita Sarkeesian

    For the past few weeks I was ashamed to be associated with the gaming community. I just wanted to wait for September so some major releases can come out and we can enjoy them as a whole. I was looking forward to seeing how Hyrule Warriors turned out and curious as to how Bungie's Destiny would work. And it was during these last few weeks of very few releases of note, the biggest act of controversy... more.
  • Metro Redux Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on September 4, 2014 under Featured, Playstation, PS4 Reviews
    People are getting tired of re-releases, and I don't blame them. In a new generation of consoles that should signal new ideas and new refreshing IP, a lot of the release catalog for PS4 and Xbox One has boiled down to ports of older games. The most egregious of these examples are Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and The Last of Us Remastered, both games that are just over a year old. All of these g... more.
  • Counterspy Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on August 21, 2014 under Featured, Playstation, PS4 Reviews
    Counterspy seems like just another independent project. It's made by an unknown studio without much hype and outside of a brief trailer shown at Gamescom, not much was revealed to the public. But this game has more of a pedigree than you know. The people at Dynamighty Studios are actually made up of various talents from Lucasarts, Gearbox, Epic, and even the animation giant Pixar. Which makes it a... more.
  • Hohokum Playstation 4 Review

    At first glance, Hohokum sounds like what most indie games strive to be at their core. An exuberant explosion of creativity, and artistic expression with no pretentions toward traditional commercial demographics or game genre. Some great games manage to be so while also being commercial and critical successes. If you want an example, look no further than Thatgamecompany's Journey. But there are so... more.
