  • Sniper Elite 3 Xbox One Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on July 22, 2014 under Featured, Xbox, Xbox One Reviews
    There are two kinds of people that will pick up Sniper Elite V3, three if you count those who load it up for review purposes. Those who see guns and soldiers and think “Yay another game like Call of Duty,” and those who pick it up because they’ve heard it’s nothing like the popular war shooter. The second group would be correct by the way. Sniper Elite isn’t your standard military shoot... more.

    Mega Man, Ducktales, Zelda II, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Castlevania. If you have fond memories of any of those games mentioned above, congratulations, you have passed the Shovel Knight litmus test and chances are you're too busy playing this successfully Kick-started game to read this review. But for everyone else who is on the fence about whether or not to pick up, or have yet to have this game r... more.
  • Valiant Hearts: The Great War Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on July 10, 2014 under Featured, Playstation, PS4 Reviews
    War is hell. It is an ugly truth to anyone who has suffered through it or knows someone who has. In modern gaming, war is either seen as an elaborate chess match or an empowerment of the single soldier fighting for his beliefs. All great representations, but very few games explore the other side of such things. The moments of silence between gunfights, the mundane or even horrific conditions of b... more.
  • R.B.I. Baseball 14 Xbox One Review

    One of the few things I’ve been missing as predominantly Xbox gamer has always been a decent baseball title, while the PlayStation camp has their pride and joy in the critically acclaimed The Show series, Xbox gamers have forced to contend with somewhat disappointing multiplatform titles in the MLB 2k series from 2K games; which was cancelled. While R.B.I Baseball is an arcade title, it does hav... more.
  • Entwined Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 24, 2014 under Featured, Playstation, PS4 Reviews
    Entwined was a release that snuck up on a lot of people. It was unveiled at this year's E3 and accrued a lot of positive buzz from many respected people in the industry. Hyped as an energetic mix of Child of Eden, Journey, and Flower, this premiere title by Pixel Opus then surprised more people by it silently arriving on Playstation Network practically overnight. While Pixel Opus should be congra... more.
  • Murdered: Soul Suspect Xbox One Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 22, 2014 under Featured, Xbox, Xbox One Reviews
    The hardest murder to solve is your own. Sometimes it’s because you’re kind of deceased and can’t solve it. Other times it’s because a game didn’t draw you in quick enough, meaning the ending is never reached. For some that’s been the case with Murdered: Soul Suspect. However, is it alright to pass an entire adventure on the beginning or is it best to push on through and really give it... more.

    Let’s be honest here, if your reading this then there is a 99% chance that you have played a Mario Kart game on at least one of Nintendo's platforms over the years, and if for some very strange reason you haven’t, you’re missing out. The Mario Kart franchise has continued to offer good wholesome family entertainment for well over 20 years now and Mario Kart 8 appears to offer the same value ... more.
  • Watch_Dogs Playstation 4 Review

    Watch Dogs has had two years of hype behind it, and needless to say it doesn't live up to such expectations. It promised the first true next generation sandbox experience with a cyber thriller edge. The trailers showed cutting edge graphics and an utterly breathtaking attention to detail. Ubisoft has released five different special versions of the game, one complete with replicas of the protagonis... more.
  • Wolfenstein: The New Order Xbox One Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 26, 2014 under Featured, Xbox, Xbox One Reviews
    Welcome to gaming 2014, a world filled with generic shooters that feel like nothing more than a slightly upgraded version of the last one and a world where a good campaign takes a backseat to an accessible multiplayer component designed to keep you hooked on running around in circles time and time again. And dying on the same piece of turf you died on the last time that sniper saw you. Thankfully ... more.
  • Transistor Playstation 4 Review

    How do you follow up success? Supergiant Games had to ask this question after the success of their first project, Bastion, on the Xbox 360. It was an otherwise serviceable hack and slash RPG that was bolstered by stellar art direction, memorable aesthetics, and above average voice-over work. Transistor in a lot of ways feels like a sequel, since it borrows several gameplay cues and ideas from Bast... more.
  • Stick it to the Man Playstation 4 Review

    Comedy in games should be explored more often. A bit of levity to help get through an otherwise serious experience is okay, but with something as subjective and broad as comedy I'm surprised there isn't more flavors of it in games. There's the 80s frathouse nostalgia and ironic game commentary of the Borderlands series and the absurdist logic of Telltale Game's adaptations of Monkey Island and Sam... more.
  • Daylight Playstation 4 Review

    It's no secret that the horror genre has seen a revival thanks to the internet. There was the explosive popularity of Slender, Frictional Games made a knockout with their Lovecraftian Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and the talented artists at Red Barrels have made the great Outlast. These modestly budgeted titles have all found their audiences thanks to certain web personalities like Pewdiepie, and ha... more.
  • Octodad: Dadliest Catch Playstation 4 Review

    Comedy is difficult in games. Punchlines can fall flat and the timing and duration of certain running jokes can degrade an otherwise enjoyable experience. There are attempts at satire like Saint's Row, but such material feels inclusive to the community as a whole instead of something more universal. The development studio Young Horses had an idea for such an experience, one that could easily becom... more.
  • Mercenary Kings Playstation 4 Review

    Nostalgia is a fickle temptress. It can make people overprotective, even blind to a fault. But it can also be a great source of passion, able to keep the work in question relevant for a long time. It can also be the basis of certain success stories from the crowd-sourced Kickstarter projects. Mercenary Kings is one of these games. Almost every single facet of it harkens back to gaming's Golden Ag... more.
  • Kinect Sports Rivals Xbox One Review

    What would motion gaming be without that token sport title? Sure, dancing is fun and Xbox Fitness is great, however the experience just doesn’t feel complete until you play some motion controlled bowling, or in this case climb a rock wall while attempting to not put your hands in the ceiling fan (I did it once, lesson learned). Rare have delivered that sport title for the Xbox One and Kinect 2.0... more.
