When it comes to putting my experience with Until Dawn into writing, I immediately thought of words like “frightening,” or “suspenseful,” or even “engaging.” However, I think my time with Until Dawn is best summed up by the following messages...

There can be no doubt that “Escape Plan Bravo” is a solid entry in the series, and a worthwhile way to spend a few hours. Sadly however, it just doesn’t meet the high standard set by the previous episodes. Captured ...

dragon age inquisition the descent

Simply put, “The Descent” is a great, intriguing piece of DLC, full of fun places to go, interesting enemies to fight, and fascinating things to learn, but misses the mark in the final moments. For fans of the series as ...

There’s a big key to playing Galak-Z going into it that everyone needs to know before playing it. It is sort of like how some people have to chew spearmint gum before a test, because if someone accidentally gives them ...

A follow up to 2010’s Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris takes everything that made the original great and expands on it. As a fast-paced, isometric, twin-stick shooter, puzzle-platformer, there is ...

If you were to take one part the climbing and exploration of Uncharted or the modern Tomb Raider games, one part the minimalist approach to gameplay and story of Shadow of the Colossus, mix it together, take out any ...

The opening of The Astronauts’ The Vanishing of Ethan Carter offers players a single sentence, “This game is a narrative experience that does not hold your hand.” And this single statement is, at the same time, the primary fault...

With Street Fighter V creeping nearer and EVO 2015 fresh on my mind, I decided to up my fighting “game” by purchasing an arcade stick to better emulate the old arcade experience I have been missing all these years using ...

godzilla 2015 2

It’s hard for me to imagine that a pre-existing series with a fully developed universe would have problems creating a video game. I mean yeah, you have to worry about sticking to continuity, but at least you’ll have a thousand ...

Rocket-League-Interview-with-Thomas-Silloway-475677-2

As a short disclaimer, this may be a very biased review because I am having so much fun with this game.  Rocket League is basically the sequel to developer Psyonix’s 2008 game,  Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. The premise...

Final Fantasy XIV has come an incredibly long way since it’s original 1.0 release. Veteran players will tell you horror stories of the game’s initial version and many more will tell you about how the reboot, A Realm Reborn, recaptured...
