NHL 17 – Xbox One Review (Also on PlayStation 4)

Last year NHL 17 won us over by bringing back all the things hockey fans missed most from NHL 16, franchise mode, online leagues, etc. So this year NHL 18 faces a much tougher task trying to convince you to buy it for reasons other than roster updates. How does it do? Well let’s take a look.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Review – Xbox One (Also on PlayStation 4)

Posted By Jeff Markiewicz On January 19, 2017 at 4:23 pm Comments Off on Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Review – Xbox One (Also on PlayStation 4)

Call of Duty is a franchise that has tackled everything from World War II to the near future. Its formula for cinematic storytelling and competitive multiplayer has set it apart from the rest of the gaming industry and has made it adored by millions. Infinite Warfare now marks the thirteenth main game in the series and it finally takes the franchise into the distant future. Science fiction has always been in the hearts of gamers but with the genre making a resurgence in Hollywood, it’s the perfect time for Call of Duty to take a stab at it. The development studio at the helm of Infinite Warfare is no stranger to taking the next step. This studio founded the franchise in 2003 and redefined in in 2007. This studio if of course Infinity Ward and while their last outing with Ghost didn’t light the world on fire, it was generally regarded as solid. The biggest obstacle for Call of Duty is the one thing that has made it so good, its formula. The formula that has fueled game after game for years is starting to show its age. Can Infinite Warfare bring the youthful spark back to the franchise or will it merely move the franchise down the road for another year?

Super Mario Maker For Nintendo 3DS Review – 3DS

Posted By Eric Kelly On December 21, 2016 at 2:40 pm Comments Off on Super Mario Maker For Nintendo 3DS Review – 3DS

Super Mario Maker is a nice little piece of kit that lets player create their own Mario levels based on a handful of Mario engine from the past. But when the game was announced to be ported to the 3DS, it did not make the transition completely intact, and I’m left wondering why.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Review – Steam, also on Xbox One and PlayStation 4

Posted By Eric Kelly On December 9, 2016 at 1:07 pm Comments Off on Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Review – Steam, also on Xbox One and PlayStation 4


Dragon Ball Xenoverse launched about a year ago, and was generally well received for players looking for a pseudo-MMO feel to their Dragon Ball related fighting games. Dimps has delivered similar experiences since the Sparking series first started many years ago, slowly but surely refining several elements along the way. It all culminated in Xenoverse. For the first time, players were able to play as their own created characters based on various races featured in the Manga and TV series. It was a fun game to play, especially with others. But there were some shortcomings that players encountered. But this new entry of the game seeks to address these issues. But that’s pretty much all that this entry does.

The Metronomicon Review – Steam

Posted By Eric Kelly On December 9, 2016 at 11:43 am Comments Off on The Metronomicon Review – Steam

Ever wanted to play an RPG that also includes a rhythm game with a combat system? Well you might be in luck, as The Metronomicon provides such an experience. But if you wanted either a well done one or such a game with a more serious story, you might want to look elsewhere. It’s not that this game is bad. Far from it, but while the concept is nice, the game doesn’t do quite enough to satisfy either type of fan.

Paper Mario: Color Splash Review (Wii U)

I’ll be honest with you guys. I didn’t like Paper Mario: Sticker Star a whole lot. Then again, that wasn’t exactly a sentiment possessed by me alone. Sticker Star could have been a good game, but it possessed a lack of an interesting story and writing. Combine that with no real reason to engage in combat while traipsing through levels aimlessly, lead to the game being a large disappointment. This entry seeks to correct those faults, but it’s only mostly successful. Nintendo is still playing it safe, and it’s a bit to the game’s detriment once again.

NHL 17 Review – PlayStation 4 (Also on Xbox One)

Posted By Michael Leparc On October 3, 2016 at 10:34 am Comments Off on NHL 17 Review – PlayStation 4 (Also on Xbox One)

nhl-17-logoEA Sports is now on its third installment of hockey for this generation of console gaming. While NHL 15 arrived on the PS4/XB1 platform after its other sports siblings, it lacked many critical features like online leagues, leading to a huge outcry. NHL 16 righted most of the wrongs fortunately and today comes NHL 17 to build on its shored up foundation. The question is have they done enough beyond a roster to warrant another buy?

If you see a Nintendo Entertainment System on store shelves this holiday shopping season, you haven’t entered a time machine.

The most likely scenario is you are setting eyes on the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, launching in stores on Nov. 11 at a suggested retail price of $79.99. That’s right: The NES is back! But this isn’t the same NES that you fondly remember. This new nostalgia-fueled system is a near-identical, mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console and plugs directly into your high-definition TV using an included HDMI cable. The console comes complete with 30 NES games built in, including beloved classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN, and Kirby’s Adventure.
