BioShock: Infinite and Why it Didn’t Quite Make the Grade

by William Harmonon April 16, 2013
BioShock: Infinite was good. But was it great? BioShock: Infinite did a few things quite well. The game was gorgeous, the combat sufficed, the upgrades you received were interesting and enticed you into experimenting with different set-ups. The “play” was actually pretty good the whole way through. The narrative also took us to some interesting […]

by Jake Valentineon March 28, 2013

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review

by Jeff Smithon February 25, 2013
Does Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance make the cut, or is Raiden‘s solo adventure a little dull? We’ve all been here before: sneaking across a war torn battlefield in a procured cardboard box previously used for medical supplies. We look around to see three guards on patrol. One of them turns away, giving just enough time […]

by Enis Tezcanon February 11, 2013
This week’s Episode of Halo 4′s Spartan Ops was titled “Key.” With only one episode left in Season 1, 343 Industries had to cram a whole lot into this episode’s cinematic. And they left it off, once again, with a massive cliffhanger. Commander Sarah Palmer goes on “her rodeo” to track down and hopefully eliminate […]

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Review

by 8 Bit Briton January 26, 2013
The Call of Duty franchise has so many installments of the game that some would feel that the newer game releases aren't getting the popular recognition the franchise used to get. That may be a true opinion of some, but for many, the arrival of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was highly anticipated and worth the wait.

Fanatical Five | Top 5 Upcoming Game to Film Adaptations

by Charles Powerson April 1, 2014
When it comes to game to film adaptations, the harsh truth is that they are almost universally terrible. Sometimes, they’ll enjoy a sizeable budget that is mostly blown on visual effects, but we’ve yet to see a film based on a video game that’s much cop.

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 […]
