Not characters, mind you. While there are more than 150 characters, triple the count of Lego Batman 2, it’s charm and personality […]
Last month, Microsoft announced that Halo: Spartan Strike, a top-down, twin-stick shooter, would be arriving in December for Window devices and PC platforms. Upon hearing that the game would be acting as a spiritual successor for 2013’s Halo: Spartan Assault, developed once again by 343 Industries and Vanguard Entertainment, I was immediately compelled to sit down with Halo: Spartan […]
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric had the right idea. When playing this broken mess, you could see the greatness buried beneath if you look for it.

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. Yet, after a […]
Driveclub is a launch game that came out 11 months after its console released. It's also far worse than the other current-gen launch racers.
Alien: Isolation is a the first licensed Alien game worth owning. That’s not really saying much about it because the bar has been set so low, so let me assure you that Alien: Isolation is a great game.It sticks to Ridley Scott’s universe admirably, creates an atmosphere that acts as a super conductor for dread, […]
