Sniper Elite 3 Review | Steady, Aim, Missed.

by Tom Dearsleyon July 9, 2014
Sniper Elite 3 is an enjoyable time killer, but feels like a rushed game built around a single feature and as such falls woefully short off it’s mark.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe Review | Cute Overload

by Jeff Smithon June 25, 2014
Few games turn me into a pacifist the way Kirby: Triple Deluxe did. Throughout the span of my 11 hours with the game, I met some enemies too adorable to slay, even if I did so while wearing a jester’s hat. Of course, this game is more than a fantastic art style—much, much more.

For those of you who haven’t heard of Watch Dogs, welcome back from the rock you’ve been living under. Here we are, playing what was supposed to be 2013’s biggest release in 2014. So, how did it stack up?

Mario Kart 8 Review | Wii U’s Drought Ender

by Ben Runningson June 8, 2014
Mario Kart 8 is a true return to form. After the last console entry underwhelmed, Nintendo has unleashed this kart racing giant onto the struggling Wii U. If you were ever a fan of the series, you must play Mario Kart 8. It is, ignoring the battle mode, the most complete and comprehensive Mario Kart […]

Mario Golf: World Tour Review | On Par

by Ben Runningson June 3, 2014
I spent a ridiculous amount of time with Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour on the GameCube and it is hard to believe that it has taken this long for another 3D entry in the series. However, Mario Golf: World Tour is two steps forward and one large step off to the side.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Game Review | Not Quite Amazing, but…Spider-Man!

by Alena Alambeigion May 6, 2014
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game destined for greatness, or video game mediocrity? It seems the latter. You will start by picking a difficulty, Human, Hero, or Super Hero. We ended up playing Super Hero with no problems, which leads us to believe anything less wouldn’t have been much of a challenge.

NES Remix 2 is back with even more nostalgia and game combining challenges. Can it live up to the memories?

Dark Souls 2 Review | A Solid Second Showing

by William Harmonon April 9, 2014
As the third (ish) entry into the “Souls” series, fans should know what they’re getting into with Dark Souls 2. As a direct sequel to Dark Souls, you can expect a lot of the same elements in this game: Pyromancy, i-frames, and Havel’s Armor… the list goes on.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 2 Review | The End of BioShock

by Ben Runningson March 31, 2014
I love the BioShock series and that is why Burial at Sea is amazing to me. Irrational Games has almost perfectly mashed up the first BioShock and Infinite to create something that I won’t soon forget. BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 2 is their swan song but it isn’t as revolutionary as what came […]

InFamous: Second Son Review | Superpowered

by Darrin Wrighton March 25, 2014
Fanatical Choice!
Originally set for the PS4′s launch, InFamous: Second Son was pushed back to a March 21st release so developer Sucker Punch could spend more time with it. That was time well spent.

Strike Suit Zero Review | Defying Gravity

by Darrin Wrighton March 24, 2014
If there are two things I love, they’re robots and jets. Well, I love more than those two things, but combining those two are like combining chocolate and peanut butter. In the case of Strike Suit Zero, the peanut butter’s sometimes unexpectedly chunky instead of creamy, but still tasty.

We all know that "Flying Fairy" was added to the title, so it could be abbreviated "FF".

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Review | A Modernized Version of Classic JRPGs

by William Harmonon March 20, 2014
Quick and dirty: Bravely Default is a JRPG on Nintendo’s 3DS platform. It was developed by Silicon Studios and published by Square Enix. It presents a classic JRPG feel in an era where JRPGs have trended towards long cinematic cut scenes, and away from the turn based games they used to be. In short, it’s […]

The Powerpuff Girls Defenders of Townsville Review

The Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville Review

by Jeff Smithon March 18, 2014
The Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville, available now on Steam, is a game that made me think. No, it didn’t present me with any interesting moral quandries, nor did it push gaming forward in any way. Rather, I found a new appreciation for a genre that typically has failed to grab me—the Metroidvania.
