Strider

- PS4

Strider, a game where your thumb gets to have a field day with the attack button, as well as enjoying a mix of lasers, neon lights, metal shrapnel, debris and blood all in one gory yet beautiful mix which only few games can master. Sounds like Broforce right? Well yes, except its smoother, sleeker, diverse and gorgeous. Story: There is a story? Oh, right, its the hardly noticeable subtitles...

Sniper Elite 3

- PS4

Rebellion Developments is just one of those studios. A lot of the time they get things wrong but once in a while they produce a little gem that is worthy of your time. I saw this with Sniper Elite V2 which was a remake/sequel to Sniper Elite. For the most part Sniper Elite V2 was a refreshing take on the shooting genre and despite some glaring issues; I had a lot of fun. This is something that...

Always Sometimes Monsters

- PC

Warning: minor to moderate spoilers for the sake of underlining the flaws in the narrative. Please read at your own caution and discretion. Always Sometimes Monsters is one of those games that I tend to avoid if I know it'll disturb me emotionally. It's a story that doesn't add up the closer you get to the end, but contains enough validity to make you sit and reflect and realize that your he...

Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning

- Xbox 360

After completing this game almost in its entirety (I didn't complete some of the tasks, but did complete all side quests and faction quests), finishing at the 75 hour mark, I feel I have come away with a pretty good idea of what this game is like. The Positive: - The graphics are usually fun to look at and give off a very Fable-like flavor, which IMO, is not a bad thing at all. The visua...

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

*NOTE #1: While this doesn’t affect the overall outcome of any score, I will be cataloguing the GOTY additions in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.* *NOTE #2: There are bigger story spoilers present in order to talk about certain qualities of the game I liked and disliked—more a mixture of both this time. Viewer discretion is advised.* Second opinions can be a great or terrible thing. It’s...

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy

- 3DS

" So what I told you was true... from a certain point of view." - Obi-wan Kenobi I've never been a fan of Star Wars. I only watched the first three movies in succession before TPM came out just so that I would walk into that theater with some context as to why the rest of these rabid fanboys were so excited. Putting that aside, I completely empathized with them and I agree with the argument...

Ace Combat Infinity

- PS3

Ace Combat: Infinity is the latest entry in the series from Namco Bandai. It's a free to play game available to download on the PSN for the PS3, but despite being free to play, it has a lot to offer. Players are introduced to the different aspects of the game in campaign mode, which features a decent story line that is told through both the missions and a brief history lesson of sorts in bet...

Watch Dogs

- PS4

Watch_Dogs has had a series of ups and downs. Since its reveal at E3 2012, many fans were wow'd by its gorgeous visuals and interesting gameplay mechanics. Good feelings towards the game seemed to disappear however due to footage showing a greatly downgraded version, and the eventually hit with the oh so annoying delay bug. As for me, I didn't pay any mind to the downgrade as I was interested i...

L.A. Noire

- PS3

L.A. Noire achieves what many thought was not possible for an open world video game, not have the player kill everyone in sight and still be fun. Rockstar is best known for its Grand Theft Auto franchise which does exactly the opposite, the formula being, get weapon and blow everyone's brains out. That's not really possible in a game where you're thrust into the shoes of a cop. A very straight...

Final Fantasy X

- PS3

When first released for the Playstation 2, Final Fantasy X was a drastic departure for the series. The series was taken into many new directions. Non-linearity was fundamental to the franchise, and it is partially the reason why so many gamers loved the early iterations, yet FFX is quite linear (For those that worry about linearity, don’t let FFXIII dissuade you from playing this gem). Voic...

God of War: Ascension

- PS3

The main series having ended with God of War III, Sony Santa Monica had to take a different course to bring Kratos back onto the Playstation 3. That meant giving the players a Kratos they hadn't seen before. This is where the basis of God of War: Ascension lies. You will see him much different than you're used to, that doesn't mean he goes easy on any of his enemies though. There's still plent...

From an exciting launch title to one of the most anticipated games of this year, Watch_Dogs has been well in the public eye for 2 years now.

Watch Dogs

- PS4

A new generation means a new IP from Ubisoft and I feel a sense of Déjà vu with Watch Dogs. It has great ideas with interesting and new gameplay mechanics but Watch Dogs seems to have suffered from its development hell. The main campaign is a mix bag of ideas that isn’t well executed. The basic premise of Watch Dogs is that you play as Aiden Pearce; a hacker who does whatever needs doing to...

Spec Ops: The Line

- PS3

Unlike most military shooters the story is the first and foremost important part of the game and the single player campaign is more important than the multiplayer...in fact just forget the multiplayer, it's a waste of time. Story: Spec Ops the Line defies conventions due to its story focusing on character's emotions with such intricate details that's seldom seen in shooters nowadays. It d...

Watch Dogs

- PS4

Watch Dogs attempts to do something unique in the open world genre, a genre that, over the past decade, has become over-saturated. Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto III set the bar, a bar that has since been inched upwards over numerous iterations from dozens of developers, all trying to leave their indelible mark. When Ubisoft unveiled Watch Dogs to the world at E3 2012 with their stunning “gameplay...

Tomba!

- PS3

For some time, Tomba! was considered one of the finest games that most people would never play. It was a game that most had heard of, but only a few lucky ones had played firsthand. Released way back in ’98 on the Playstation 1, Tomba! (Or Tombi! here in the UK) did not sell stunningly well, despite strong reviews. Although a sequel was secured, developers Whoopee Camp unfortunately went out...
