Until Dawn

- PS4

Until Dawn is an experience unlike any other for several reasons; primarily, because it is every good—and bad—horror story, gloriously merged into a single, original and innovative narrative. It contains a little bit of everything and in my eyes, is the definitive teen horror story in video gaming. Until Dawn was originally planned to release as a PlayStation 3 exclusive with a heavy emphasis o...

The Long Dark

- Xbox One

Imagine, for a moment, that you were traveling across the country and in an instant, there is a global disaster that brings the apocalypse upon the world. In one moment, you were flying over Canada and in the next, your aircraft was swiftly losing altitude and crashed into the Canadian wilderness. There's no supernatural or undead threat; no zombies, no murderous psychopaths. It's just you and...

Fallout Shelter

- Android

This review is based upon my experience with Fallout Shelter on a Samsung Galaxy S5. Mobile (phone) games are not usually a part of my palette. I have typically seen them as nothing more than a time waster that isn't worth my time. I however found myself interested in Fallout Shelter. I am a fan of resource gathering games, "perhaps this could be a good addition to the genre!" I thought. But...

N Plus Plus

- PS4

Reluctantly tapping my fingers across a keyboard awash with the dirt and decay of a thousand previous typists, I hit an errant jump and meet my demise, my severed appendages coating the monochrome room and coming to rest in each of its furthest corners. Maybe next time I should avoid the gold and just reach the end intact? Maybe my mind has been sufficiently numbed following a morning spent gra...

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

- PS4

The apocalypse, the end of the world as we know it. Destruction, zombies, and creatures, living, dead or strangely deformed are after whomever is left of the human race. Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture has one of the better interpretations of this cataclysmic event and AAA developers and publishers may want to take some pages from its manual. Developed by The Chinese Room, the indie studio b...

Batman: Arkham Knight

- PS4

Riddle me that, why is the latest Batman game getting so much flak? (PC people I feel you though) Batman: Arkham Knight puts you in the boots of the Caped Crusader one last time as he fends off evil doers who have now invaded the city of Gotham. This time Scarecrow gets the spotlight after the sad passing of The Joker. With the help of a new enemy, dubbing thee Arkham Knight, Batman faces hi...

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition

- PC

Here we are, nearly two months since the release of the critically acclaimed The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. This very website gave it a 9.7, even daring to go so far as name it the Greatest Game of All Time, or GOAT, if you will. Yet the story behind this game that causes nerds to froth at the mouth began many moons ago, in the forgotten age of 2007, with the release of The Witcher. Little did we...

Alien: Isolation

- PS4

Alien: Isolation is really something. Avoiding the Alien and wading through the tension between encounters is downright rollicking. I feel now that the least important enemy in all future games should be as dynamic as the Alien portrayed here. It's one of those things that ruins a whole swath of other games for you because the tinker toy enemies will seem so pathetic, comparatively. Even...

Destiny

- PS4

Destiny is a space exploration action FPS RPG from the studio that brought you the iconic Halo series, Bungie. Venturung out of their comfort zone, Destiny is sort of a miniature MMO. If you played the Halo series then you will quickly adapt to the gameplay of Destiny as it shares similar mechanics,gunplay and overall design. Before you start playing you must take hours deciding (these are a...

Batman: Arkham Knight

- PS4

The Arkham Knight was one the games I have been looking forward to get my hands on since it was revealed. I felt I owed to the series as I didn't purchase Asylum in fear of it being just another rubbish superhero game. I didn't buy City at launch as I feared the open world structure would make it more generic, the story would be diluted and it will be filled with rubbish side quests that would...

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward

- PC

Originally launching in 2010, Final Fantasy XIV has had a far from ordinary life so far. Met with massively negative to mediocre reviews, and after an indefinite delay of the Playstation 3 version, XIV underwent an entire re-branding. Bringing in a new director/producer in the form of Naoki Yoshida (known to fans as Yoshi-P), Square-Enix almost completely destroyed their entire game to bring us...

Alien: Isolation

- PS4

It usually takes a bit of coaxing to get me to sit down and play anything remotely frightening, which is terribly ironic considering that I'm typically the person dragging my friends and family to the latest horror flick at the cinema. With that being said, Alien: Isolation was a game in the back of my mind since its launch in October last year and I've been regrettably procrastinating picking...

Rocket League

- PS4

Soccer has been in the news a bunch over the last month or so. The Woman's Cup just ended with a dominating United States victory, and FIFA is getting investigated left and right for corruption charges (Qatar, seriously?). And in what is probably the smartest timing ever, Rocket League now hits the spotlight as soccer is fresh in everyone's minds. The twist? We're playing in cars. Yes, just...

War Thunder: Ground Forces

- PC

The tank sim-lite genre of gameplay is saturated with a variety titles to choose from. From ever so popular World of Tanks to recently in beta Armored Warfare. There certainly isn't a shortage of games that provide that tank warfare fix; and these three titles primarily focus on free to play game features. However there is one thing in common with most of them; an arcade-health bar style damage...

Driveclub

- PS4

Holy balls, Driveclub really is fun. This game is meant to played in cockpit view. I love all the little presentational flourishes; the HUD is very active and neat, even though I prefer to turn it off whenever I can. There were flickers of disappointment with the environments but something weird happened to me the more I played. I think the graphics have a visual learning curve, in a wa...

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

- PS3

Anyone who's been keeping up with the series will be familiar with the Desmond saga that had been the staple of the series so far. However, with that story line having ended, the next installment had a challenge as well as an opportunity to step in and move the series forward with a change in direction. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag attempts to do much of that but with the intention to keep i...

The Wolf Among Us Season 1

- PC

Everyone has heard or read their fair share of folklore and fairy tales. Some of these stories can be similar to our societal circumstances. Other stories have life lessons that you probably will take with you into adulthood. In the world of Fables in The Wolf Among Us, we see a fragile environment. The characters we grew up with and know so much of like Beauty and The Magic Mirror have forever...

Life is Strange: Episode 1 - Chrysalis

- Xbox One

*NOTE: Considering that this is a game heavily focused on storytelling, I’m going to have to bring up some MAJOR AND MINOR SPOILERS about Life Is Strange in order to examine how I feel about it. For this special case, it’s not possible to obscure all important details to examine it the way I want to here. Viewer discretion is advised.* *NOTE #2: Review for this episode reflects thoughts on...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

- PS4

Standing on the borders of the idyllic White Orchard, sun at your back, clouds ambling softly across the pastel sky, the many woes of the Northern Realm may be the furthest thing from your mind. For as the fires of a civil war rage in the distance, and the pious puppet masters scheme and plot in the shadows, White Orchard seems removed from it all, a bastion of lush greenery and placid water...

Battlefield: Hardline

- PS4

Battlefield: Hardline is a game I've been going back and forth on since I participated in the public beta a few months back. I was never one for competitive anything and simply wanted to just enjoy the experience overall. That's the primary reason why I was never a big participant in the online communities of Battlefield or Call of Duty. I wasn't terrible at it—quite the contrary in fact—but I...

Life is Strange: Episode 2

Last time we left off Max and her band of wood planks, she finally tells Chloe about her powers and what she foresaw. Max starts thinking of the dream of the storm, and realizes that it may not be just a dream, but a telling of the future. After the freak snowfall, Max must find out what causes what, be even more careful about her powers, and hope that what she does doesn’t lead everyone to the...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

- Xbox One

It isn’t every day that I experience something so grand that I want to do little else with my time, so naturally, when The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was announced, I got a little too excited. I couldn’t tell you with certainty how much time I poured into its predecessor, but it was an absolutely memorable experience that was the source of many good moods. When compared to Assassin of Kings, the thir...

Bloodborne

- PS4

Bloodborne isn’t just a fantastic action game, it’s an antidote to an increasingly complacent gaming industry. Much like the the endless amounts of blood vials necessarily used throughout, Bloodborne acts as a blood transfusion of classic gaming values seemingly lost in many contemporary high-profile games: fun, depth, difficulty. It doesn’t hold your hand through a 30-minute tutorial, insultin...

Splatoon

- Wii U

Splatoon is the kind of squideo game that the 8th generation has been woefully lacking. In an industry where massive teams are desperately trying to deliver big budget games in time for the holiday season, Splatoon squirts on to the Wii U at the dawn of summer, wallowing in its 90's 'tude and harkening back to the bright colors and inventiveness of Dreamcast-era Sega. The only crucial problem t...

E3 is quite a strange and unique thing in the games industry. By all intents and purposes, it is just a dressed-up PowerPoint presentation intended to excite fans and journalists covering the event while also geared towards showcasing upcoming titles to these publishers’ investors. And as the result of today’s current gaming climate, it’s often this odd marriage between middle-aged businessme...
