DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

- PS Vita

As an aficionado of Japanese murder mysteries, how could I pass on the chance to play DanganRonpa when it landed on my beloved Vita? Avoiding spoilers hasn't been easy but going in with total media black-out mentality has been totally worth it. I'm BEAR-y confident to say that DanganRonpa has a been a ride well worth the price of admission. You are Makoto, an average Japanese student who get...

TitanFall

- Xbox One

Titanfall is the big Xbox One exclusive the industry was starving for for a couple of months now. It's the big game that is supposed to sell and justify the purchase of the Xbox One for many. To some extent it does this and it doesn't. Whether or not you think it's worth spending $500 to play is up to you. Is the game good or bad? Well it's neither. It's fantastic. While Titanfall is most ce...

The Walking Dead - A Telltale Games Series

- PS Vita

The highly acclaimed franchise known as "The Walking Dead" - it has a highly successful comic book series, and an even more successful TV show. A video game wouldn't hurt - so many fans would play it! Sales would be incredible! What could go wrong?! Well, a lot of things, actually. Despite the numerous awards and great reviews that Telltale Games' "The Walking Dead" received, the game fell fla...

Dark Souls 2

- PS3

Dying is an inconvenient truth of living that most people choose to not think about during the time they’re given. The Souls series is notorious for taking the stark fact of death and shoving it right in the faces of its players, and it all started with the, at the time, underground title Demon’s Souls. After the many achievements of this brutally difficult dungeon crawling, action RPG, a spiri...

Tekken Tag Tournament 2

- PS3

OVERVIEW It has been a good number of years since the first Tekken Tag Tournament, but here comes Namco firing back with this great follow up. The last time a Tekken Game came out I was fairly disappointed. Tekken 6 was a bleak and horrible let down compared to the previous games in the series. I dare say it was the worst of the bunch. With that being said Tekken Tag Tournament 2 made sure t...

The Last of Us: Left Behind

- PS3

The Last of Us is back and does what it does best. It is tense, emotional(If you don't mind dramatic irony) and poignant. This time the game explores the joys of life before the outbreak. And yes, cliche as it may be, it kind of makes you appreciate what you have got. It utilizes dual story lines that flip back and forth between each other. This is great for pacing, things never get too acti...

Doom

Introduction Now the reason I made this discussion/review/ad for Brutal Doom is because I am working on a discussion about modding games, and because Brutal Doom kicks some serious butt. I am going to talk about various things before the actual topic in question, Brutal DOOM. I need to talk about these things so you’ll understand. Original DOOM The original DOOM which was released on many...

Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale

- 3DS

Lets talk about Attack of The Friday Monsters: A Tokyo Tale brought to you by Level 5 Inc. Where do I begin? I originally saw this game on the Nintendo e-shop a while back, and it caught my eyes with its charming graphics and adorable characters, yet after further play through that is all that kept my attention. As the name suggests the monsters attack on Friday. You play a young boy na...

Max Payne 3

- PS3

Max Payne 3 is an ode to the older action games. It has a classic game feel while implementing new game ideas and trends. It has a classic game feel, especially clear with the; noir dialogue, hard boiled feel of the story, characters and the same relentless gameplay that was heralded in from the first Max Payne game. As well as this classic feel is the addition of new game ideas and trends. Col...

South Park: The Stick of Truth

- PS3

South Park is a franchise that not everyone will enjoy. In fact some people outright hate it because of it's crude humour, ridiculous plot twists and disgusting visuals. Yet if you are a huge South Park fan like me, and have seen every season, then this is a must buy. South Park is the second longest running cartoon television show in United States history. Why, you ask? Because from its c...

TitanFall

- Xbox One

"It's just Call of Duty with mechs," was my initial thought when I first read a couple of previews for Titanfall a couple of months back. To this day, it remains my go-to quick explanation when describing it to people who're interested in finding out what it is. I originally took Titanfall to be Electronic Arts' parallel to Activision's latest instalment in the never-ending Call of Duty franchi...

South Park: The Stick of Truth

- PC

Introduction Obviously I’m not going to spoil anything, but if you are not a fan of South Park then stay away as you will not understand the hundreds of references to the show and movie. Since the game isn’t a Triple A game but NOT an Indie game the review isn’t that long, also it’s freaking South Park. Who doesn’t know at least something about South Park? Gameplay I have to address thi...

Persona 4: The Golden

- PS Vita

I’ve never been very adept at managing my time, nor have I ever been very good at maintaining social relationships. Persona 4 Golden, however, has taught me that I don’t need to be proficient at either of these things in real life, simply because playing this game was enough to make me feel like a master at balancing my friendships and hardships in perfect harmony. Persona 4 is a Japanese role-...

Call of Duty: Ghosts

- Xbox 360

Ten years is a long time for any game franchise to be around. And with that achievement being reached for Call of Duty, I’m starting to feel old, having played each main entry in the series and noted its moments of evolution and nuance since its inception. And that term “evolution” is the sticking point for many detractors of the series as it remains the AAA-budget gaming equivalent of a mone...

South Park: The Stick of Truth

- PS3

South Park The Stick of Truth had been in development for quite some time. First announced in 2011, it had great promise being written and directed by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The minds behind the wildly successful TV series featuring the incredibly offensive and oft times hilarious adventures of four young boys living in South Park Colorado. Of course, I'm assuming if you have interest i...

Sonic Generations

- PC

Introduction Ah Sonic…You haven’t had the best development cycle in the gaming industry, highly questionable games and tons of rushing but you finally managed to do it. Sure Unleashed was good whenever you weren’t playing as the Werehog. Colors was good but motion controls are poop, handheld games have been good thou. Many “critics” have called Sonic Generations a “best of” collection even...

BioShock: Infinite

- PS3

Overview— Over the past several years 2K games has made a name for itself with its top-notch games and great investment in details. A few years back a game called Bioshock burst onto the scene making big boast of brilliant graphics and awesome story. It fulfilled those promises and gave new breathe to the first person shooter genre. A few years later it followed up with a solid sequel in Bio...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

- PS3

Konami should be a shamed of themselves for attaching the Castlevania name to Lords of Shadow 2. I say that with a heavy heart as I greatly enjoyed Lords of Shadow 1 up until the ending boss fight against Satan, which was weird. Lords of Shadow 2, and yes I am intentionally leaving off the Castlevania name like Konami should have insisted on Mercury Steam doing, started up with a bang. The intr...

Thief

- PS4

It’s been ten years since last we saw Garrett roam the city in search of loot to line his pockets. In those days, it felt like the stealth genre was more of a subtle nuance, tailored to those with the will to wait and observe. In the time between then and now, the stealth genre, in a lot of cases, has evolved into something that attempts to cater to the majority instead of the few, for better o...

Need For Speed: Rivals

- PS4

Two years ago, the Need For Speed series underwent a major change when Criterion took over development in Black Box’s stead. Having been a huge fan of racing games since PSX, I wasn’t too thrilled to see the creators of Burnout taking over the Need For Speed series because I was afraid of one of my favorite racing series’ losing its identity. When I did finally pick up Most Wanted, I was left u...

Dead Rising 3

- Xbox One

I was never a fan of the Dead Rising franchise, despite the original instalment being the fuel behind my desire of owning an Xbox 360 console several years ago. I'd originally watched a television commercial for Dead Rising and nearly fell out of my chair with excitement. Upon playing it, however, I found the controls to be clunky, the gameplay tedious and the overall experience difficult to sw...

Killzone: Shadow Fall

- PS4

Who on Vedka thought it was a good idea to move the Helghast next door. Killzone: Shadow Fall has been hailed as the PS4’s go to launch title, but did it live up to the hype of the console? Unfortunately Yes and No. Killzone: Shadow Falls delivers on what a Next-gen game looks like and should become, but launch syndrome and what seems like a rushed released creativity wise keeps Killzone f...

Thief

- PS4

--INTRODUCTION-- Thief has a long illustrious history with the PC platform. A stealth game about thievery where stealth is of uttermost importance. I was always envious of people who could play Thief (back then my rig could barely run it at 10fps) So this review comes from someone who never got to play the original games but can still appreciate its roots. --STORY-- You are Garret...

Strider

- PS4

DISCLAIMER: I have NEVER played any Strider game in my life so I can't judge the game as an old-school fan of Strider. Consider that as a warning for old Strider fans. Let's see... Strider is supposed to be the reboot for Capcom's famous arcade game Strider which was a side-scrolling platformer that had innovative gameplay and music at its time which is a great hit for Capcom before they mad...
