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 […]

BioShock Infinite Review | Prepare to be BioShocked, Again

by Jake Valentineon March 28, 2013
BioShock Infinite is an achievement in every sense of the word. A game that transcends its medium and meets its lofty expectations, even if I was missing the depths of Rapture.

Crysis 3 Review | An Average Dressed Man

by Jake Valentineon March 22, 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 […]

Halo 4 | Spartan Ops Episode 9 Key Review

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 […]


Halo 4 | Spartan Ops Episode 8: ‘Expendable’ Review

by Enis Tezcanon February 4, 2013
This week’s Episode of Spartan Ops, also titled “Expendable,” came out earlier today with high expectations due to last week’s Episode 7. For myself, I had high hopes for this week’s episode and was greatly looking forward to it. There is no doubt that Spartan Ops is moving towards its season finale as we witness […]

Halo 4 | Spartan Ops Episode 7: Invasion Review

by Enis Tezcanon January 28, 2013
One of my favorite aspects of Halo 4 is without a doubt Spartan Ops. For those of you that haven’t played Spartan Ops, it takes place 6 months after the events of Halo 4. Throughout the entire first season, it’s had overall ups and downs. Today, Spartan Ops Episode 7 Invasion was released. Any doubts about Spartan Ops have been thrown […]

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.

Why Spacing Out Super Smash Bros. on 3DS and Wii U is a Good Thing

by Ben Runningson April 9, 2014
The Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. don’t share a launch date. Could this somehow affect the sales of either version? Super Smash Bros. will be released first on 3DS this summer. The Wii U version will follow in the winter. And this is a very, very good thing. Mainly, it gives the […]

by Alena Alambeigion April 7, 2014
Last month when Gearbox announced that they wouldn’t be working on a Borderlands pre-sequel they omitted that another studio would be (you sneaky sneaky Gearbox). In a recent potential leak from GamePointsNow.com, they claimed that 2K Australia, not Gearbox was working on it.
