Slender: The Arrival

- Xbox One

Scary stories around a campfire have been a classic template to tell tales for long time. Whether it’s from a bunch of youths at a summer camp listening to that too-invested camp instructor or watching a bunch of stilted teenage actors on older cheesy TV shows, scary stories around this particular venue probably hold some fond memories for all of us. Now, in the advance of the internet, these...

Outlast

*Note: While trying to avoid late-game story spoilers altogether, specific antagonists will be revealed here which may diminish your excitement when seeing them for the first time in the game. Viewer discretion is advised.* The survival horror genre has seen quite an uptick in popularity these last few years, especially for the indie scene. Of course, when such an uptick occurs in the mili...

The Evil Within

- PS3

I label the year of 2014 in video games as the year of hype gone wrong. There were many games that had a lot of steam going forward toward their release dates only for many gamers declaring how boring or completely opposite the game was that they were expecting. Watch Dogs, Titanfall, Destiny, Assassin's Creed: Unity, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 were ga...

Resident Evil Revelations 2: Episode 4

- PS4

**Note: This is a spoiler-free review of the retail version of Resident Evil Revelations 2, not just the fourth episode.** After careful obervation, I've devised a new formula for the timeline of every Resident Evil game after RE 4: 1. Capcom regurgitates the "return to the series' horror roots" hype. 2. Capcom brings back fan favorite characters amid a bunch of crappy new ones. 3. Revi...

Resident Evil Revelations 2: Episode 1

- Xbox One

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is the first episodic installment in the beloved Resident Evil franchise, which shelves the setting in between the events of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. After a brief delay in picking up my copy, I promised myself I'd finally complete Operation Raccoon City first and foremost. Upon playing Revelations 2, there hasn't been an installment in the series that h...

Bloodborne

- PS4

Who would have thought that in 2009 Demon's Souls and the "Souls" franchise would garner so much attention from fans and media alike? With outstanding gameplay elements, outstanding artistic and level designs coupled with a unique multiplayer experience and a brutal learning curve, it is easy to see why it has become so popular over the last 6 years. It has become something more than refreshing...

Bloodborne

- PS4

Immediately setting the tone for Bloodborne is an atmosphere straight out of a classic horror novel, just oozing with mystery. It looks beautiful in a terrifying way, this place does not feel safe and it most definitely isn’t. The atmosphere is so powerful, not only in drawing you into a new world but also by providing a tense, edge of the seat feeling that is carried through every second of th...

Bloodborne

- PS4

I stepped down the cobblestone steps with immense trepidation, my heartbeat rising as the mob of enemies approached me. I was seasoned in the art of monster slaying, but this was unfamiliar turf, and where the hell was my shield? A shot rang out. A third of my miniscule health was gone in the blink of an eye, and the perpetrator was already reloading for a second shot while his allies continued...

Never Alone

- Xbox One

*Note: Review reflects my experience of an updated version of the game. First time playing was on February 14th of this year.* I’ve grown slightly irritated at the idea of a term like “unbiased” being a way of giving adulation towards my reviews. It causes me to wonder if I had only presented calculated information then my own subjective perspective on experience at times. It’s in cases l...

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...
