Review: Titanfall

This is it guys and gals, here we go! This is when it all starts for real. November was exciting and all, having two brand new consoles launch, but the real main event comes in March when all the great games start coming out. Great games like South Park: The...

Leaked Images Suggest “Assassin’s Creed Comet” Coming to 360 and PS3

Is it just me, or is the latest round of AC games named really unusually? Shortly after Ubisoft’s announcement of Assassin’s Creed Unity for PS4, Xbox One and PC, we have leaked images hinting at the newest “last-gen” offering from the series: Assassin’s Creed Comet. Leaks tend to happen on...

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg officially announced the deal via a Facebook post. Oculus founder Palmer Luckey followed up the announcement...

Dark Souls II PC Release Date Is April 25

The long awaited next installment of Bandai Namco’s brutal and amazingly fun RPG is set to release on Xbox 360 and PS3 on March 11, but until now there had been no date set for the PC release. We now have that date, April 25. PC gamers like myself will...

New Batman Game “Arkham Knight” Announcement Trailer

Here’s the trailer for the next Batman game. Unfortunately I’m going to be skeptical about this game until I see some gameplay proving they’re showing some evolution. Arkham Asylum was fantastic. Arkham City was good, but didn’t change enough. Arkham Origins was just more of the same and I’m oficially...

Review: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Oh, what a tale I have to tell you. It involves intrigue, suspense, excitement, and the rise of a relative unknown to the spotlight, then the meteoric crash back down to Earth. It’s a wild ride, and one you need to hear about. What? No! I’m not talking about Kingdoms...

Review: The Banner Saga

As a discount game buyer I don’t usually get to play games within the first month or two of their release, but The Banner Saga came out priced at only 25 dollars and I got a good deal on top of that. I was really excited to check this out...

Minecraft Tops 100 Million Registered Users

It’s not exactly a secret that Minecraft is a wildly popular and successful game. Developer Mojang creator Markus Persson have seen unfathomable success with the open world building game that spawned an entire genre and aesthetic for modern games. Almost any number that could be thrown out there wouldn’t be...

TwitchPlaysPokemon Is A Beautiful Clusterf%*k

You simply have to see this for yourself. Currently anonymous Twitch user TwitchPlaysPokemon¬†has developed the most simultaneously wonderful, genius, and maniacal thing imaginable. Shut down the internet, we’re all done, because we now have over 70,000 Twitch viewers all collectively controlling a single game of Pokemon Red via chat. This...

Review: Lord of the Rings: War in the North

As an avid video game player and massive Lord of the Rings fan I have definitely had my share of ups and downs when it comes to games from Tolkien’s beloved fiction. There certainly hasn’t been a shortage of titles and I’ve played almost all of them. From the great...

Review: Gone Home

Gone Home is an interesting game that came out a bit later in 2013 and I managed to get my hands on over the holiday break. That timing happened to coincide with quite a few gaming sites releasing their game of the year awards and lists. Just before starting the...

Review: Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Splinter Cell: Blacklist came to me by way of opportunity. I was buying a new graphics card and it was included along with a few other games in the bundle. It wasn’t a game I was specifically thinking about picking up, but I certainly welcomed it as a bonus. I...

Review: Proteus

This review is going to be short, which is unbelievably appropriate given my experience with Proteus. It’s a funny thing that happens when you’re a PC gamer. You end up participating in a lot of Steam sales and picking up Humble Bundles. In addition, there are a lot of other...

Review: Driver: San Francisco

The Driver series is kind of a funny thing. I couldn’t tell you exactly what the point of the franchise is exactly. I mean, it’s not a “Driving Game” in the traditional sense of the word like Forza or Gran Turismo. On the other hand, I wouldn’t necessarily group it...

Review: Saints Row IV

Who’s ready to have some fun?! That’s what video games are supposed to be all about right? Sometimes as grown ups we get caught up in thinking way too much about things, and we need a nice, mindless outlet for entertainment to enjoy. Sure, the appearance of this fun has...

Review: Tomb Raider

With the Tomb Raider “Definitive” Edition being released, I figured this was an excellent time to catch up and give my thoughts on the Tomb Raider “Promoted As Totally Good At The Time But Now We’re Kind Of Shitting On It” Edition. Square Enix, if you ever end up going...

Review: DmC: Devil May Cry

When I was growing up I was mostly a Nintendo/Original Xbox kid, so there are some game series I have never really had a proper chance to appreciate, namely those on the Playstation consoles. I’m lucky enough to have recently picked up a PS3 and have enjoyed catching up on...

Review: X-Com – Enemy Unknown

The developers of X-Com: Enemy Unknown had an impossible task laid at their feet. First, they needed to revive the classic X-Com series of games. Not only that, they needed to do so in a way that was accessible to new players. They also needed to stay true to the...

Review: The Swapper

It’s a trope of the horror/thriller/suspense genre. An individual finds themselves on a ship or space station completely isolated from any outside contact. The ship (or station) is abandoned and (almost) all signs of life have been extinguished. It is up to the individual to find out what happened and...

Review: Papers Please

I’m not really sure how to review or even classify this game in a traditional sense, but I have heard it included in a very unusual set of games that some people are calling “empathy simulators”, and I think that is about as close as you’ll get to identifying Papers...
