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. This isn’t to say the two games […]
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls changes the franchise for the better, adding in countless replayability, more loot than you can count, and enough enemies to kill for days and days.

Here’s the rundown on Cartoon Network’s newest mobile game, Globlins: An astronaut and his pet monkey return home to Spillsville after a journey to a faraway galaxy. Little did they know, some foreign creatures tagged along for the ride and are infiltrating the brains of other Spillsville residents and it’s up to you to save […]
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 […]
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. InFamous: Second Son takes place seven years after the events of InFamous 2, which (SPOILERS!!) ended with the death of prior series protagonist […]
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. I’m all out of food metaphors. […]
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, 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 anyway. Rather, I found a new appreciation for a genre that typically has failed to grab me—the Metroidvania. Defenders of Townsville isn’t […]
If you’ve been online any amount of time in the past few months, you’ve seen hype for Titanfall. Well, the game’s here… did it live up to the colossal expectations everyone had for it? For the most part, yes, and those places where it doesn’t quite reach the heights we imagined it to aren’t that […]
South Park: The Stick of Truth is at it's best when it's acting more like an episode of South Park and less like a video game.
It may have one of the strangest names of all time but Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is already on my shortlist for Game of the Year. Any Vita owners interested in a story based game that is completely different than 90% of everything else should pick it up straight away. The game pits you as […]
Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to go through the second episode of Telltale Game’s second narrative adventure game: The Wolf Among Us. This title is a murder-mystery adventure game that revolves around the characters of Bill Willingham’s comic series Fables. Players control Bigby, Fabletown’s sheriff, as they try and discover the perpetrator of […]
