Dying Light – The Blast Review

In theory alone, Techland’s Dying Light looks a lot like someone trying to cram as many industry buzzwords onto the back of a box as possible. Zombies? They’re here in droves. Parkour style rooftop running? It’...

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell – The Blast Review

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell builds to an impressive peak nearly halfway through it’s five hour campaign. It’s a remarkably fun and admittedly cheesy musical number inspired by the likes of Disney’s Sleeping Bea...

WWE 2K15 Review – Enhancement Talent

For the last few years, I've been falling in and out of love with pro wrestling. My dad got me hooked on it during the old Prime Time Wrestling days so I try to get into it as much as I can but for every great ...

So close, yet so far: Alien Isolation review

  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 nig...

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.

Game Review: South Park — The Stick of Truth

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...

Game Review: Thief

Video Review — XCOM: Enemy Within

http://youtu.be/ipxoECNRms8 When I finished XCOM: Enemy Unknown, I couldn't help but feel like I wanted more. Not "more" as in the game had been lacking in any particular aspect, but "more" as in I enjoyed t...

Battlefield 4 — The Blast Review

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 piec...
