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 […]

InFamous: Second Son Review | Superpowered

by Darrin Wrighton March 25, 2014
Fanatical Choice!
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 […]

Strike Suit Zero Review | Defying Gravity

by Darrin Wrighton March 24, 2014
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. […]

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Review | A Modernized Version of Classic JRPGs

by William Harmonon March 20, 2014
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 Review

The Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville Review

by Jeff Smithon March 18, 2014
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 any way. Rather, I found a new appreciation for a genre that typically has failed to grab me—the Metroidvania. Defenders of Townsville […]

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 Review | Sweeeeet

by Jake Valentineon March 4, 2014
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.

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Review | Murder High School

by Ben Runningson February 24, 2014
Fanatical Choice!
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 […]

Ys: Memories of Celceta Review | Portable RPG Addiction

by Ben Runningson December 9, 2013
Ys is a long running JRPG series that I’ve wanted to check out for quite some time, and with Memories of Celceta, I finally got a chance to. There’s a very clear reason why these games have a cult following: Memories of Celceta is a ton of fun. It may not be the best RPG […]

What Could this Mystery PS4 Exclusive Be?

by Carlos Ovalleon October 17, 2014
Here at The Game Fanatics, we don’t particularly like to dabble in unconfirmed, hearsay content but it’s hard to look the other way when we’re hearing words like, “Huge” and “Rage” and “Exclusive.” These are all buzzwords we’ve come to know very well but it doesn’t look like we’re going to have to wait very […]

PS4 Continues Victory Lap, Wins US September Hardware Sales Despite Mediocrity

by Carlos Ovalleon October 17, 2014
Another month, another Sony victory in the console war and Microsoft’s attempts at cutting through with their free Destiny promotion proved futile. But make no mistake, Microsoft did really well it just couldn’t slow down the PS4’s seemingly endless run of 9 consecutive months of outselling the Xbox One. Sony also announced that September was […]

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 […]
