So let’s talk about Destiny…

Before you read this you should know that this is not a Destiny review; at least not in the sense you’d expect. Understand that I’m not even claiming to have come close to finishing what Destiny has to offer — ...

Review — Oddworld: New n’ Tasty

I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the original Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey. You see, there was a time during high school where I stopped playing video games altogether. That is until I got an original Xb...

Review – Oddworld: New n’ Tasty

More than just a re-release, Oddworld: New ’n Tasty is a complete reimagining of the original Abe’s Odyssey and the result is the absolute best version of the game to date. Long time fans of the series will appreciate the love given to the aging formula while those new to Oddworld get the game we imagined we would so long ago. Some of the controls have been changed, and not for the better but don’t let that stop you — those new to the series and those who have experienced the game before should check out this love letter to the Oddworld series.

Lego: Marvel Super Heroes — The Blast Review

Some of my favorite moments in comics have always been the ones where heroes from different books interact with each other. Whether it be Spider-man and Daredevil hanging out in Hell’s Kitchen or The Fantastic Four and Captain America teaming up to take on an enemy threatening New York; there’s just something about knowing that all of the Marvel Universe is connected. Perhaps that’s why I loved Lego: Marvel Super Heroes as much as I did, no game (at least since 2006’s Marvel: Ultimate Alliance) has managed to collect this many heroes and villains together and be this successful. Yes, Travelers Tale’s latest brick adventure may seem familiar on the outside but it’s one of the most charming and unique games you’ll play all year.
