Don Bradman Cricket 14

- PS3

"Don Bradman Cricket 14 is not like any Cricket game you have played before, the first thing to do before you pick up the controller is to forget all that you know about Cricket games past and start afresh….” That’s not me talking about and asking rhetorical questions; it is the foremost line in the Don Bradman Cricket 14 manual that pretty much sums up the entire game. For a video game featur...

Final Fantasy X-2

- PS3

By all accounts, the new Final Fantasy X Remasters have let us re-experience a classic in Final Fantasy X, originally for the PS2. It had what I considered to be a great story that delved into social commentary about prejudiced on the basis of religious beliefs, all the while having someone in the middle trying to make sense of it all. It had everything, including the love story, the inner conf...

Dark Souls 2

- PS3

Demon's Souls broke ground introducing one of the hardest games in a time where everything seems to simplified. Dark Souls built upon that foundation and created a more maniacal experience. Dark Souls 2 deviates from this path as they try to gain new fans by making it more accessible. New comers to the series may find challenge since they don't know what to expect, but as a fan of the previous...

Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning

- 3DS

Harvest Moon: A New Beginning is, as the name implies, an attempt to begin anew. With a fresh start to a franchise long considered stale, A New Beginning hopes to bring new ideas to the table and bring back the flare to the popular farm simulator. Yet, despite a lot of interesting additions A New Beginning cannot hide its slow and tedious core. In similar vein to past entries, A New Beginnin...

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

- Xbox One

I will admit I wanted nothing to do with this game from the moment it was shown at E3 to the moment I purchased it. The game lacked that "mature" look that "Gritty" feel that I was use to in shooters. I wonder now if I have been desensitized to having fun with a game simply because it doesn't look "good enough" and the truth is yes. That was the sad part about it all, the only time I felt ok...

inFamous: Second Son

- PS4

I never thought I would be writing a review for another inFAMOUS game after the events of inFAMOUS 2 but somehow Sucker Punch managed to carry on with their new entry being released on the PS4. inFAMOUS: Second Son leaves Cole, Zeke and New Marais/Empire City behind and instead follows a new protagonist named Delsin Rowe (voiced by Troy Baker) and his brother called Reggie (voiced by Travis Wil...

Luftrausers

- PC

Luftrausers is an arcade dogfighter game in which you shoot boats, jets, aircrafts and whatnots. A gamesession can variate between 30 seconds to 5 minutes (IF you got any luck surviving this long^^). It´s brutal, unforgiving, plain and simple but a hellish addicting game =) GAMEPLAY Simply put, you have to press 4 different buttons. And avoiding projectiles while flying. Oh and sometimes...

inFamous: Second Son

- PS4

Rather than rehashing the plot and generalizing the experience, I will focus on the game's strongest pros and cons. Also, this is a technically-minded review. It and its number/score are not meant to persuade you to play it or not. ******** I have always loved the inFamous franchise. Next to the productions of NaughtyDog, it is the very best, I believe, that consoles have to offer. Its st...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

- PS4

The long and very anticipated return to the Metal Gear Solid series saw Hideo Kojima release what technically is a tech demo, but this isnt any ordinary tech demo, and Ill explain why. Im going to break this down into sections and this relates to the next generation version of the game, more specifically the PS4 version as that’s the one I own. Main Story (Spoilers) The main story itself...

The Last Of Us

- PS3

Few games have made as much of an impact this year as The Last of Us and it rightfully earns its place in fans’ hearts in surprising and unparalleled ways. Brutal, foreboding, shocking, haunting: all of these words can describe the level of artistic effort that Naughty Dog has put into its tortured, apocalyptic epic of survival and tragedy. Players will find themselves most hooked not on the ho...

Hotline Miami

- PS Vita

There’s just something about Hotline Miami that’s instantly appealing. Whether it’s the overindulgent graphics that make up the main menu, the calming music that precedes your play time or the minor titbits of exposition that layer each addictive level, Hotline Miami’s introductory minutes are the perfect blend of both simplicity and style. But Hotline Miami doesn’t just have style full-s...

inFamous: Second Son

- PS4

Here it is, the PS4 home-run, the grand-slam to owning the console. The crème de la crème of open world games...or is it just a game with a decent story and much filler? Going head first into inFamous was amazing. I could NOT believe how great the game controlled. It was the smoothest 3rd person game I've played to date and you could tell that Sucker Punch put a lot of time into the controls...

TitanFall

- Xbox One

E3 2013 Lots of hype. Lots. TitanFall was going to be the next big game to plant its seed in an already crowded garden of First Person Shooters. This plant was different however, it was something fresh, something new, dare I say ...Something "different". The events leading up to the release of this game reminded me much of the Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare launch. I remember how much hype the...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

- PS3

Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes is a prologue of sorts to the next full iteration of the series Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. If you’ve read anything as of late on the internet regarding Ground Zeroes, changes are you’ve come across some worrying news that you’re basically paying $30 for a Metal Gear demo. So before I dig into the meat of this experience, let’s clear some things up. T...

inFamous: Second Son

- PS4

Not many super-hero games were a success. Superman 64 is the biggest example of how you don't make a super-hero game in your whole life. There are still bad games like Spider-Man 3, Superman Returns, and Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters. That doesn't mean that there weren't great games as evidenced by Batman Arkham series and Spider-Man 2. Now, developers are trying to make original gam...

*Note: You will be wading into some spoiler territory in this review. Given the complaints and praises—mostly complaints—I will be raising with the story, it’s impossible for me to avoid spoiling some details (not huge ones) while also trying to provide an exploration on the game. If you want a fresh experience on all the game has to offer, I suggest avoiding this review for now.* Ever si...

South Park: The Stick of Truth

- PS3

The long awaited South Park video game has been looked forward to by gamers, and fans of the show alike. The last South Park game was a foray into multiplayer a couple of years back. In the show’s history it is known for the kid’s crazy antics, outrageous adventures, and rounded off with some excellent writing that pokes fun at pop culture. Well in the Stick of Truth those things are brought to...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

- PS4

The Metal Gear franchise is known for its detailed, complex, and heavy storyline but releasing each game out of chronological order taking the user back and forth in the story can bring on some confusion. However, each game does tell its story and if you pay attention and read about it online you can stay in the loop. I had to watch a 5 part YouTube series 15 minutes each to know what was happe...

Papers, Please

- PC

True creative inspiration has a habit of leading to uncultivated territory. Not long ago, a wall was dashed asunder and a communist union was dissolved; now, that mark on history has been married with ex-Naughty Dog developer Lucas Pope’s tense experiences with international checkpoints and has given the gaming world Papers, Please. What makes this game feel so audacious is in how counterint...

South Park: The Stick of Truth

And meet some friends of mine. It's been a long time since the iconic juvenile's have shown their presences on a home console (with the exceptions of the XBLA games). South Park: The Stick of Truth is a brilliant and joyful experience from start to finish that will have you laughing all the way through. The team at Obsidian, under the watchful eye of the creators of South Park, have created...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

- PS4

Tactical Espionage is a phrase that instantly comes to mind when accompanied with Metal Gear Solid. Beginning in the late 1990’s with the original Metal Gear Solid, this series has been renowned for its innovative stealth-action gameplay and compelling, albeit convoluted, narrative. Throughout each entry in the series, the games’ creator, Hideo Kojima, has developed new characters and gameplay...

Yes, I know you probably have seen that joke on the internet about a dozen times over, but believe me when I say that this is no exaggerated description. I bought Metal Gear Solid V with some cautious reservation because of what I have been reading and hearing about it. I am here to tell you guys that every positive and negative thing about Ground Zeroes is pretty much true. Before I get hazed...

DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

- PS Vita

Danganronpa is a game you’re either immediately onboard with, or don’t wanna touch with a ten-foot pole. I’m here to encourage you to hop onboard or at least shorten that pole, especially since the Vita’s still a bit starved for good games and this is one of its better exclusives. Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Climax is the Vita remake of the Japan-only PSP original, simply titled Danganronpa,...

The best experience of a first person shooting game has always been on the PC. The keyboard and mouse has been the ideal controller to get those accurate head shots. But with the rise of consoles, the fan following of FPS games has divided into 2 camps i.e., consoles and PC’s. A third contender however is gunning to be the device for first person games – the tablet. Gameloft is a company tha...
