So close, yet so far: Alien Isolation review 0

  If last year’s Alien’s Colonial Marines succeeded in anything, it was in making one of Hollywood’s most menacing monsters into little more than a joke.  The best that once gave kids the world over nightmares was reduced to little more than cannon fodder; oh, and it danced. It seemed like it would be the(…)

Game Review: South Park — The Stick of Truth 0

Not so quiet mountain town. The love affair between South Park and video games has been a one-way street so far. While creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have given us episodes based on everything from Guitar Hero to Pokemon and Tiger Woods PGA Tour, the games industry has given them…Chef’s Luv Shack.

Game Review: Thief

Game Review: Thief 0

Kleptomanic Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat – Thief is not a bad game. It’s entertaining and satisfying as hell to plan out and pull off the perfect heist. Yes, Thief does a lot right, and that’s why it’s so maddening that it takes so many shortcuts and delivers an(…)

Blast Review: The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 1: All That Remains 0

Same great game, new playable character. I never got into the TV show or comic, but the first season of The Walking Dead the video game was an instant favorite and one of only two games to visibly bring me to tears by the end. (You can ask me what the other one is later.)(…)

Battlefield 4 — The Blast Review

Battlefield 4 — The Blast Review 1

Battlefield 4 hits all the right notes for what it tries to be. It’s big, it’s dumb and it’s loud. It features a ton of unlikeable dude-bro soldiers firing at anything that moves with little remorse in set pieces that would make even Michael Bay jealous. Built on the strength of its much-loved multiplayer suite,(…)
