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...

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...

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-...

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...

The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Episode 1 "All That Remains"

- PS3

Last year, Telltale Games captured the gaming community’s collective attention with their rendition of the popular comic and television series, The Walking Dead. The game wasn’t a first-person shooter, or a role-playing game, or even a puzzler. No, Telltale Games went old-school on us with a revamped version of the classic point and click adventure. The Walking Dead: Season One focused heavily...

The Stanley Parable: HD Remix

Parable; a short allegorical story designed to illustrate or teach some truth, religious principle, or moral lesson. Based on this definition, someone going into The Stanley Parable might infer that the game will be about a lad named Stanley who, for the duration of the game, will accompany the player on an adventure that will impact them in some meaningful way. With no prior knowledge to the g...

Darksiders: Wrath of War

- PS3

Despite having been out and on shelves for 3 years, Darksiders had illuded me until very recently. When it was originally released I wasn't interested in it at all and knew next to nothing about it; but when its' sequel was released and critically praised, I decided to look into where it all started. I went into the game with an open mind and genuine interest. Given that the series is still pre...

Bloons TD 5

- iPhone

Popping balloons in real life can instill some pretty dramatic emotions: terror, excitement, relief, happiness, etc. Who knew, that for only three dollars, these same emotions could be experienced virtually? Bloons TD 5, developed by Ninja Kiwi, is a tower defense game that was originally an online exclusive. Now that it's ported to handheld devices, I couldn't resist picking it up and seeing i...

Max Payne has led a hard life; a harder life than anyone should have to lead. Max just wants to do what's right and protect the innocent. What do most people do when the world continues to beat them down? They give up. But not Max. He prefers to pop an absurd amount of pills chased with whiskey no less. The pills and alcohol keep the depression at bay, yet nothing keeps his spirits up like shoo...

Dark Souls

- PS3

Have you ever wanted a video game that makes you break more controllers than hours spent playing it? Or a game that delivers so much tension that you have multiple heart attacks while playing? Or how about a game that fills you with fear every time you step around a corner? If all of these things seem pleasant to you, look no further than Dark Souls. Let me start by saying that this game is...
