It's a safe bet because Dark Room finally begins to pay off a lot of its many plot threads and finally crystalizes all of the series' strengths into some very effective moments.

  • Godzilla Playstation 4 Review

    Godzilla opens up with the titular King of the Monsters re-enacting his iconic first rampage through the city of Tokyo, with a news report blaring, and even a black-and-white color scheme. It was in this brief moment that Namco Bandai delivered on making you feel like that atomic lizard. Then control was given over to me and my enthusiasm plummeted as fast as a nuclear bomb drop. An hour later, th... more.
  • In Memoriam: Satoru Iwata

    It was late at night at a local meeting place with trusted friends that I got the news about the tragic passing of Nintendo's CEO, Satoru Iwata. Throughout the rest of the night I wanted it to be a mishap, an unfounded rumor, that the man was still alive and well. But the night passed, I woke up, and the industry and the community as a whole were all united in sorrow at his death at the hand of hi... more.
  • How Warner Bros. Convinced Me Not To Buy Arkham Knight

    In case you aren't aware, the most recent big budget AAA release was Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady's finale to their run on the Batman games. Things have come a long way since then, for both Rocksteady and Warner Bros. Interactive, both in terms of talent and business practices. It's been quite a journey, and as a fan of the World's Greatest Detective, I have nothing but the highest respect fo... more.

    Editor's Note: This review was written by freelancer, Ben Carlander. Thank you for your submission! Over the course of nearly 30 years, the video game industry repeatedly reaffirmed the notion that games about superheroes just aren’t very good; second only to movie tie-ins in terms of poor reputation. Superhero video games stumbled through generations of gaming consoles, rarely hitting the mark... more.
  • The Good and Bad of the Nindies of E3

    So E3 has come and gone and there were quite a number of interesting things that came out of it. Mostly good, a few bad, and even one apparently controversial, but the thing about the conference is the news and content doesn't just stop at the big flashy shows and announcements. Take for example, Nintendo's Nindies@Home initiative. While major publishers showed off the more modest projects made b... more.

    Of course, no E3 conference is complete without talking about Nintendo, one of the oldest companies still making video games and has some of the most iconic intellectual properties in the industry. Just like last year, Nintendo didn't have a large, lavish, live show with a bunch of scripted gameplay slices and speeches, but instead opted for a small, humble Digital Event showcase to unveil their l... more.

    And we come to yet another year of the head of the Xbox clan, Microsoft giving their announcements and plans for the future. They had a lot to cover, between games, the upcoming Windows 10 OS, and dipping their toes into Virtual Reality. So what exactly was announced and what was worth talking about? Halo 5: Guardians Gameplay 343 Industries have been busy, and Microsoft was proud enough of th... more.

  • Splatoon Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 5, 2015 under Featured, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    Nintendo made a family-friendly shooter. With online focus. If this was said a few years ago, chances are many would call it a crazy pipe dream. Also as a brand new IP as opposed to repurposing the more marketable Super Mario characters? What a time to be alive. But there's a bit more to Splatoon than its quirky sensibilities let on. On the surface, it is an inky shooter, but it also mixes togeth... more.

    For CD Projekt RED, it is the end of an era. For almost a decade, the Polish developer has been adapting The Witcher novel series into a trilogy of games, which started as a PC exclusive dense RPG and has grown into a multiplatform slightly-less dense Action-RPG. They have said that The Wild Hunt will be the final adventure for the series, and it absolutely shows with this game. The studio has pu... more.

    Chaos Theory opens with the Maxine and her friend Chloe sneaking around Blackwell Academy late at night, looking for answers to lots of glaring problems established in prior episodes while getting up to some harmless student mischief on campus. It's a very refreshing cut to the chase that Episode 2 lacked, but it also serves as the epitome of what Life is Strange is at its core. And that momentum ... more.
  • Wolfenstein The Old Blood Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 9, 2015 under Featured, PS4 Reviews
    Machine Games' take on Wolfenstein was, as far as we're concerned, one of the most underrated shooters of last year. Where most modern shooters were full of nothing but weapon limitations, regenerating health, and linear missions full of explosions and confusion, this series' soft reboot, Wolfenstein: The New Order stuck to its legacy. You could wield any weapon in the game, even dual-wield them, ... more.
  • Mortal Kombat X Playstation 4 Review

    Mortal Kombat was the Texas Chainsaw Massacre of fighting games for the longest time. Yes, there were characters and something resembling a mediocre fighting game on screen, but why it got popular and why people flocked to it aside from all the hidden secrets and goodies, was the blood and the gore. It was shocking at the time and became so popular it actually helped create video game rating syste... more.
