Fun, Fun, Fun and Wub, Wub, Wub – Our Saints Row IV Review

by Charles Powerson August 20, 2013
Dubstep guns and super powers…an alien invasion and a virtual Steelport…spaceships and insurance fraud (yes it’s back!), welcome to Saints Row 4! Saints Row 4, a game that is so out-of-this-word, so ridiculous, so…not serious, but yet is heaps of fun. To put into words the vast expanse of things one can do in the game is […]


DuckTales Remastered Review | Bless Me Bagpipes

by Darrin Wrighton August 14, 2013

by Katerina Perichon June 24, 2013
There’s a certain level of emptiness that you feel after playing a game like The Last of Us; it’s this haunting, inexplicable emptiness that leaves you wanting more as you hang your head, wipe your tears, sigh, and acknowledge that it’s over.I can’t tell you the last time (if ever, to be honest) that a […]

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.
