Forza Horizon 2

- Xbox One

It's no secret that the simulation racing franchise of Forza Motorsport is simply one of the best out there, having been essentially Microsoft's answer to the PlayStation exclusive of Gran Turismo. With its début nine years ago in 2005, the Forza games have been nothing shy of critically acclaimed, with the franchise having sold over ten million copies as of last year, and the lowest average sc...

Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Old Iron King

- PS3

Dark Souls II has been a bit of a mixed bag in terms of reception: some people would say the level designers need to be hit with a rake, others would call it a rightful successor to Demon's Souls given some of the mechanics (i.e., leveling up through an overseer of your actions). Recently, From Software started releasing their DLC missions: Crown of the Sunken King, Crown of the Old Iron King,...

FIFA 15

- PS4

In a year, with multiple AAA games releasing and receiving all the hype, it is no surprise that the next installment of the FIFA 15 franchise goes a tad overlooked. Even though over 5.5 million gamers played the demo, (setting an EA record) I could not help but feel that the game was somewhat overshadowed. Even as I was in line checking out with the game in my hand, I felt no sense of urgency t...

Destiny

- PS4

Destiny, Bungies new IP since Halo has finally released and has got gamers either loving or hating it. Many spending countless hours on their search for lootz. Many just spending time wishing they didn't buy a digital copy(this guy right here!), so that it could be returned. However, lets take a look at it from an analytical and business prospective. ACTIVISION ARE GENIUSES. This company has...

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

- PS4

Final Fantasy XIV, its initial release was somewhat a mixed bag of emotions, on one hand it was an outright failure, on the other it secured a very dedicated community of players. As the online successor to the extremely wonderful, and very much still prominent and alive today, Final Fantasy XI. It had the hype, expectation and the weight of a need for change, but most importantly new experienc...

The Last Of Us

*NOTE 1: While I want to attempt talking more vaguely about certain praises for story and storytelling than with my recent Uncharted reviews, it’s not possible to skirt every possible story spoiler for that to happen. Viewer discretion is advised.* *NOTE 2: All of my online play has occurred after August 7th 2014 (something like patch 1.07) Any additions, like modes and maps purchased wil...

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

- PS3

The PlayStation 3 has a wide variety of exclusives, ranging from interactive movie like experiences such as heavy rain or beyond two souls to almost perfection in gaming with the last of us. But if you prefer the jrpg genre, the PlayStation 3 has you covered with a great selection of titles! And what better a game to pick, than level 5's Ni No Kuni, one of the most charming games from the last...

NHL 15

- PS4

So with all the controversy of EA leaving out some big game modes in this years addition of of the hockey franchise, the game still delivers on presentation, gameplay and new features. I did not get to play NHL 14 due to the fact that I purchased a PS4 and and it was only on PS3 so I skipped a year. I think the biggest upgrade for me personally was the presentation of the game. After I...

Destiny

- PS4

So with a week of play under our belts we feel as though we are ready to give you our take on Bungie’s sci fi first person shooter. There are several aspects to Destiny, and first we will tackle the story. I have read what the internet says about the length of the game and in that aspect I somewhat agree. Yes the story was a bit shorter than what I expected especially due to the fact that t...

Destiny

- PS4

Not many games come to mind when you think of Bungie that isn’t Halo, and no one would blame you, since it has been a while since they’ve made a game that wasn’t Halo. After taking some time off from Halo, they seem to still have some interesting game ideas floating around, so they didn’t sit on their hands this whole time. This time around, they decided to team up with publisher Activision to...

Destiny

- PS4

Like the glint of gleaming star in the visor of a marauding cosmonaut, Destiny brings with it a light that burns bright and shines proud. But this is a star with a deceptively short half-life, and one that loses its lustre with a languid inevitability. For this is the makeup of Destiny, a game full of promise and potential, but a game flawed down to its very essence. Many of Destiny’s woes s...

Destiny

- PS4

Where does one start when it comes to reviewing Destiny? Is it an fps, mmo, rpg, a combination of the above or something entirely different? Can it be reviewed like a traditional game? Is it something the average COD or mmo player will enjoy? Questions like these can only be answered by those who actually experience the game for themselves, there isn't a review on the planet that can answer the...

Destiny

- PS4

Let me start this review off by saying that I am not one of the Bungie fans that was inexplicably stoked for this game on unrealistic levels. I originally was not going to purchase the game, but someone on the Activision marketing team was a smart cookie, and they got their hooks in. I turned from "meh" to "hmm, that game looks interesting. I'll give it a whirl". I played about 23 hours. Off we...

Destiny

- Xbox 360

This will be an opinion piece, but an honest one. No I don't want your clicks, recognition, praise, hate; whatever the case, I just want to be honest about my experience with Destiny on the X360 version. Yes, x360, No I am not a M$ fanboy, it's just the platform I chose to play on. All consoles have their pros and cons and this is just what I choose to play Destiny on. So who shouldn't...

Quest of Dungeons

- PC

Once upon a time, games were challenging. The roguelike dungeon crawler subgenre dared players to delve into the unknown, risking life and limb in search of treasure and glory. Victories were hard-fought, not handed to players as a matter of course. Deaths were frequent and gruesome, but they were always memorable. In short, games demanded something of their players. Surviving to the dungeon’s...

TowerFall Ascension

- PC

Towerfall: Ascension by Matt Thorsen is a combat platformer that places archers in an arena to fight for glory and bragging rights. Developed primarily with local multiplayer in mind, it reminds me of playing Goldeneye for the N64 with friends when I was younger. Towerfall makes me wish local multiplayer wasn’t something almost forgotten in today’s industry. If you have the local player-base, t...

The Last Of Us Remastered

- PS4

The Last of Us Remastered is a game that weighs the worth of humanity. In a rapidly decaying world that now finds itself at the mercy of the roving undead, it’s those that remain that perhaps pose the greatest threat to our extinction. These are the scavengers, the fanatics and the downright insane; those who would gun down a man in the street just for the chance to rifle through his pockets...

Hotline Miami

- PS4

I was one of those gamers who did not get the chance to experience Hotline Miami when it first launched on PC in 2012 and on PS3/PS Vita a year later. However, with the recent PlayStation 4 release, there was no way I was going to skip playing this title once again. I went into Hotline Miami with a brief knowledge of what the game was about; it’s a crazy, bloody and action-packed top down shoot...

The Sims 4

Author's Note: Final score adjusted to reflect an unbiased standpoint. Since the début of the franchise fourteen years ago, The Sims was essentially the leading representative of computer gaming. The original chapter in the series managed to sell 16 million copies and was awarded five world records, including "World's Biggest-Selling Simulation Series" and "Best Selling PC Game of All Time."...

Tales of Xillia

- PS3

Content Warning: Mild swearing, mild sexual humor, some characters could do with more clothes, but for a JRPG even that’s not too bad. Opening: Tales of Xillia is an installment in the Tales series (some may recognize such titles as Tales of Symphonia or Tales of the Abyss, among others). These games run a similar track of thought to the Final Fantasy franchise, where the individual g...

Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition

- PS4

Diablo 3 was an easy game to fall in love with. This was a game that expertly melded together simplicity on the surface with depth at its core, as an addictive pursuit of the absolute best gear that the game had to offer intertwined with the meticulousness of fine-tuning your character. And as my lust for loot took me to battlefields both hallowed and hazardous, across sun-glazed deserts, ca...
