Last generation was defined and dominated by a single franchise, Call of Duty. No other franchise really came close to generating more hype and anticipation than this one. Before Call of Duty 4, the franchise was a competent shooter that met moderate success on the PC. After this, the franchise was the defining shooter on […]

If you were old enough to have watched shows like Robotech and became a fan, chances are high that you’ve always yearned for a game that captured the essence of that series in videogame form. Unfortunately for Western gamers, they have been deprived of such an experience for a ridiculously long time. Now enter 17-bit, […]

Posted By Aaron Jean On November 16, 2015 at 3:58 pm Comments Off on Tales from the Borderlands – Review of All Seasons Windows PC (Also on all current consoles)

Telltale Games seem much more comfortable with the language of cinematography than the language of game design. If games are to be measured by the things gamers love to rage about, Tales from the Borderlands isn’t worth its footprint on your hard drive. Boiled down to your interaction with the game, you play a walking […]

Posted By Michael Leparc On November 10, 2015 at 3:45 pm Comments Off on Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Review – PlayStation 4 (Also on Windows PC and Xbox One)

Last year, Assassin’s Creed took it right on the chin. Score one for the Templars, in fact. Unity was dogged by criticism even before release for its lack of a playable female character (Liberation’s protagonist, Aveline, not counting for much apparently) and various comments that didn’t play well in the media. Once it was out […]

Posted By Aaron Jean On November 9, 2015 at 4:51 pm Comments Off on Fallout 4 Review – Windows PC (Also on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One)

The Bethesda Fallout games are almost beyond reproach. In the vast, flawed game that is Fallout 4, you’re probably going to be impressed by the number and scale of things, not their quality. Not to say Fallout 4 is fundamentally bad, but there are plenty of rough spots along the way. For better or worse, […]

She was at the forefront of the PlayStation’s original success, demonstrating the innovation made possible with the advent of accessible 3D graphics on the console. But eventually a fall from grace […]
