Ori and the Blind Forest

- Xbox One

As gaming evolves more and more over the years, there has been a noticeable push in games that have more of an artistic vision than an actual game. Sometimes it’s frowned upon if developers get too ahead of themselves, but the small few that look pretty work their ways into gamer’s hearts, even if they’re just a moving painting. These games present no real structure or sense of design, but rath...

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D

- 3DS

I have never played Majora's Mask. Being a young teenager when it was originally released back in 2000 I didn't quite have the funds or means of getting every game I wanted to play, but always managed to get the ones I really wanted. Majoar's Mask was a bit different however because it wasn't the price of the game that was the issue, it was that damn expansion pack that you would have to pop in...

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number

- PC

The original game, Hotline Miami. It seemed to be very much like a Willy Wonka Factory. Just with blood and gore instead of sweets and chocolate. A brightly colored and violent game entirely in the moment. Dennarion Games created a world of Pre exhilaration . The different between life and death exists within your finger tips and the constant momentum regardless of what enemies and objects are...

Planetside 2

- PC

I've been looking for something in the recent weeks to occupy my time, but I'm tired of dropping money on duds. Luckily, I came across Planetside 2. After reading the reviews I thought I would jump in, and boy was I in for an unexpected treat. My first couple hours in the game were rough, I didn't understand the map layout, the classes, how to pilot vehicles, or special abilities all too w...

Dragon Ball Xenoverse

- PS4

As a huge Dragonball Z fanatic it doesn't necessarily carry over to the video game side of things. I enjoyed the Budokai series, skipped most of the Tenkaichi series, and jumped back in for Bust Limit but haven't invested time in the games since. A good Dragonball Z game is nothing new but it seems to be a hit or miss lately from what I've read across the world wide web. I didn't know what to e...

Dying Light

- PS4

It was hard to disagree with many of the criticisms levelled at Dead Island, the game that represents Techland’s last foray into the first person zombie survival genre. A poorly conceived story? Check. One dimensional, impermeable characters? Check. A somewhat subdued atmosphere that offered little in the way of an unnerving sense of dread? Well, maybe this one had more to do with the abundance...

James Bond 007: Blood Stone

- Xbox 360

Author's Note: I'm aware that Blood Stone is nearly five years old. Having just written a blog dedicated to the James Bond games and with Blood Stone being a game I've been playing a lot lately, I've decided to finally sit down and give it a proper write up. With Activision having produced the last official James Bond video games we may ever see, there was one game in their repertoire that w...

Far Cry 4

- Xbox One

It was the middle of the day when I was chasing after a supply truck around the quivering bends of a Himalayan mountainside. As I caught up to the truck on the all-terrain-vehicle, I fired several shots into the cabin, but managed to miss the driver. As I drifted around the corner, I noticed an enemy road block in the distance. I was already short on ammunition and not in the mood for another g...

The Order: 1886

- PS4

There was once a time when reviews could only be read in the next issue of whatever game magazine source you trusted. There was a time when ad revenue didn't matter, and you trusted someones own opinion on a game. Sadly though that has changed because of the internet. E3 2013 was the reveal of "The Order: 1886" and it gathered much hype quickly, after seeing that trailer and the E3 2014 game...

Apotheon

- PS4

We've seen this story before. A simple man versus the gods and insurmountable odds. Apotheon strips this ancient story to its very bones and what results is a very simple plot which is easy to follow. Story isn't Apotheon's bread and butter and it understands that by limiting story to brief conversations which serve to give you objectives to accomplish. This is an admirable trait as players who...

The Order: 1886

- PS4

Gaming is a massive foray of different ideas and designs that makes the medium quite interesting. On the dartboard of the whole market, some aim for specific genres, hoping for their throw to be the next big hit with the audience. With games becoming more and more realistic, some have been going for a more intricate story while also balancing their gameplay. However, some games have also sashay...

Medieval II: Total War

- PC

Note: This is a review for Europa Barbarorum II a modification for Medieval II Total War. It has been six months since my army has left our capital city of Bactria. Gone are the fertile valleys of our homeland replaced with the cruel unforgiving Himalayan Mountains. Unexpected resistance from the hill tribes has forced us south, abandoning the Khyber Pass in place of the Gedrosian desert. My...

Dragon Age 3: Inquisition

- Xbox One

In an instant, a large explosion erupts and the resulting mushroom cloud of ominous emerald light opens a gargantuan rift in the sky, later called the Breach, serving as a portal of sorts to the world of demons, the Fade, and the malevolent creatures start falling from the upper atmosphere. It sounds like the potential plot for a new season of Supernatural, but it is in fact the introductory na...

Sniper Elite 3

- Xbox One

Serving as a prequel-sequel to Rebellion Oxford's 2012 title, Sniper Elite V2, players will find themselves once again in the shoes of Karl Fairburne, an American OSS agent, on an assignment in North Africa during the events of World War II. The experience as a whole is rather enjoyable as it builds upon the mechanics of its predecessor and retains the gloried x-ray kill cams, Sniper Elite 3 se...

The Order: 1886

- PS4

Like a shiny medallion hanging around the neck of an unsightly drifter, The Order’s interpretation of London is one of distinctive duality. This is a city of great industry and progress, yet also one permeated by a lingering sickness that looms large over the simmering dockyards and thatched terraces alike. In the streets, effigies of the Queen are branded and burnt on hastily affixed gallows,...

Dragon Ball Xenoverse

The Dragon Ball universe, what is there to say when everything has already been said about this game? It is probably, if not the most well known anime to hit the American market and have a outstanding fan base. With well known games such as Dragonball Z: Budokai 3 and Dragonball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3. But how long ago have those games actually been out for and how long have we have been waitin...

Hand of Fate

- PS4

Once in a blue moon a game comes along that completely dazzles you and blows you away, and that's what this little known game does. Hand of Fate coming from a kickstarter background, and all it is; is a collectable card game which has heavy roguelike elements, with some combat (in third person) which kind of hinting towards Dungeons and Dragons. It sounds like it wouldn't work right? Well oddly...

The Order: 1886

- PS4

The other day, I tuned into my favorite gaming website, N4G, to see what could be known about the Order: 1886. There were the typical clickbait articles containing classic clickbait terminology: "graphics downgrade," "game is too short," "repetitive," and "generic." What, do these guys buy the same dictionary: "How to write clickbait, a primer?" It was then that I had an epiphany of sorts....

Evolve

Anyone up for the Hunt? Evolve has arrived on Xbox One and Playstation 4 and with it comes huge expectations from gamers. Can this title deliver? The road from announcement to launch hasn’t been the smoothest for Turtle Rock Studios from Title delay to DLC controversy but throughout its development time, the feedback from trade shows was always hugely positive. I have listened to countle...

Resident Evil HD Remaster

- Xbox One

Growing up, Resident Evil was a staple in my household, among many other video game franchises. It was the first time I'd experienced a horror game, but at five years old, I really had no idea what I was doing. I would watch my father solve puzzles and obliterate the undead; I would run in circles around Spencer Mansion. Fast forward nineteen years since the 1996 debut and Resident Evil is stil...
