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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
