Throwback Thursday | Mass Effect Review

by Todd O'Rourkeon October 16, 2014
Originally published for the Xbox 360 in 2007, five years later, Mass Effect finally arrived to the PlayStation 3 in December of 2012.   During this span, it seemed like Microsoft would not abandon its stranglehold of the original game, even after the second and third iteration found its way onto Sony’s console.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter Review | Paranormal Pulp

by James Wynneon September 30, 2014
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter was “weird fiction” pulp done right, and it looked amazing. If it were a dame that had walked into my office I could safely say she was a looker. She had legs that went on forever too. I assumed control of the paranormal P.I. Paul Prospero, a burned out detective […]

Hyrule Warriors Review | 70% Musou, 30% Zelda, 100% Fun

by James Wynneon September 30, 2014
Hyrule Warriors is definitely a Warriors game, but it does something that rarely happens in gaming today: A crossover that’s more than just a skin. It may be the familiar Musou combat you were expecting, but Zelda elements permeate everything to some degree. The combo is like a peanut butter and honey sandwich. It’s not […]

Forza Horizon 2 Review | Tourists, Start Your Engines

by Bryan Dupont-Grayon September 29, 2014
If you’ve ever collected a gigantic amount of miscellaneous toy cars and raced them all around your room or—if you’re like me—around your grandmother’s kitchen, then you’ll firmly understand the Forza Horizon 2’s knack and need for endlessness.

Throwback Thursday | The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Review

by Todd O'Rourkeon September 25, 2014
With The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt coming upon us, I am salivating at every morsel of news to come out of the CD Projekt RED team. However, I am not too familiar with the series. Having never played any of the games and having only read The Last Witch, the first book in the series […]

There is not one singular thing that Destiny does exceptionally well. In fact, one might argue that Bungie’s attempts at making something groundbreaking fall short and undefined.

Dead Trigger 2 Review | A World of Zombie Killing in the Palm of Your Hands

by Bridget Thrashon September 8, 2014
Featured Mobile Game
This review is long overdue. I have been playing Dead Trigger 2 since they released their Football Mazzacre in July and I have been so engulfed that I haven’t had time to tell everyone about it. I have come across very few games that have mastered graphics in the way that MADFINGER Games has. Dead Trigger 2 is […]

Dark Souls II: Crown of the Old Iron King Review | Like a Moth Drawn to a Flame

by James Wynneon September 8, 2014
Like moths drawn to a flame, Crown of the Old Iron King, the second of three add-on scenarios for From Software‘s Dark Souls II, brings players to the ashen stronghold of the eponymous monarch. The scenario tries to keep the momentum going from the Crown of the Sunken King add-on, while shifting away from the […]
