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. Yet, after a […]

Driveclub Review | The Washer Fluid Is Not Fine

by Jake Valentineon October 15, 2014
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 Review | I Admire Its Purity

by James Wynneon October 15, 2014
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, […]

Super Smash Bros. 3DS Review | Smashingly Mediocre

by Bryan Dupont-Grayon October 9, 2014
Considering its overall wide acceptance across the industry and its integration in several e-sport/fighting game competitions, it almost seems like the Super Smash Bros. series can do no wrong, so Super Smash Bros. 3DS must be good, right? Think again. From the birth of the franchise on the Nintendo 64 to the smashing fan favorite […]

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. Endless amounts of cars, endless customization, endless freedom to tour around the Horizon Festival—the game is practically […]

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 […]

Zen Studios’ latest title KickBeat has arrived on the PlayStation 4 and the Wii U this week in Special Edition form. How does it fare in a world of gaming that has largely moved away from the genre of rhythm games? Well, there’s kung fu. I’ve always liked Guitar Hero and Rock Band and I may […]

Balancing Fun and Challenge; Lords of the Fallen Developer Diary 1

by James Wynneon October 23, 2014
The first developer diary for Lords of the Fallen is out and the highlight is how to balance challenge and fun so as to avoid frustration. It’s a very delicate balance and a goal every developer must wrestle with on their own. I was actually pretty down on the game early on as a fan […]

Spotted over at XboxAchievements.com earlier today, […]

Fanatical Five | Five Reasons to Buy a Wii U in 2014

by James Wynneon October 22, 2014
The Wii U was obviously a misfire. Nintendo bungled virtually everything about its release: They timed the launch poorly, alienated fans, alienated third parties, named it horribly, and utterly failed to sell consumers on the game pad. The only way it could have gone worse is if Microsoft had performed another on stage abortion for […]

Hyrule Warriors Does Well Enough, Support Continues with amiibo

by James Wynneon October 22, 2014
Hyrule Warriors is strange for a Musou game in that it has sold better in the West than it did in its native Japan. Perhaps it’s just more proof that fans in the NA and EU regions love them some Zelda. While the sales numbers aren’t on the same scale as something like Destiny or […]
