Flashback

- PS3

Anyone who remembers the original 1992 release of Flashback will know that it raised the bar for 2D cinematic platformers and changed the gaming landscape for the better. Heavily influenced by games such as Prince of Persia and drawing directly on the success of its spiritual predecessor, Another World, it cemented Delphine Software’s place in videogame lore. Although the developer went into ad...

Batman: Arkham Origins

- PS3

I still remember screaming kids that want their balloons back to their slippery hands each time I swing to another area of New York City. I also remember trying to complete many challenges or just cheat to get awesome new outfits for my superhero. Yes, I am speaking about Spider-Man games from the last two generations when PS1 and PS2 were still alive. No other games gave their respective super...

Tales of Xillia

- PS3

The latest of a slew of Tales titles due to hit the West in their translated forms, Tales of Xillia was initially released in Asia just a tad over 2 years ago. Xillia has gone on to be one of the most marketable (and marketed) titles in the Tales series for a number of reasons, including its sequel which is due to hit the lands of the West somewhere around the first or second quarter of 2014. W...

I wanted to love this game so much more. I truly did. After a recent escapade back to my old point-and-click adventure roots with The Night of the Rabbit, I’ve had a fervid desire to mix this genre back into my routine much more often: this title, the special editions of Monkey Island—plus other Lucasarts’ classics if Disney knows what they’re doing, and hopefully many more. It was rather...

Batman: Arkham Origins

- PC

It is universally agreed that Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City are both two of the finest games this generation that provided a pleasant change of scenery from the usual horde of sub-par superhero games. This certainly paved the way for some cautious scepticism when Warner Bros Montreal took on the onerous task of creating a prequel to the esteemed series. Making a sequel, or prequ...

Batman: Arkham Origins

Imagine, if you will, falling in love with a beautiful girl. She's smart, she's funny, she's beautiful and she knows how to make you happy. You have no idea how but somehow every syllable, every word and every one of her actions make your heart soar. She just has that certain 'quality', if you will. Fast forward in time, you and your beau have broken up (circumstances not important) and you're...

The Last Of Us

- PS3

Over the past five years or so, the gaming landscape has been inundated by post-apocalyptic and/or zombie themed games. More often than not, these games range from mediocre- a la ZombieU -to downright awful, like this year's Walking Dead Survival Instinct. But occasionally, the industry strikes gold with brilliant experiences like Fallout 3 or Metro 2033. These games tap into what can make the...

Beyond: Two Souls

David Cage is a polarizing figure. Depending on who'd you ask, he's either a hack who couldn't make into the movie industry or a pioneer of the storytelling medium. Personally, I'm ambivalent towards Mr. Cage. I find his ideas to be sound in theory but their execution almost always falls flat. Take, for example, Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy. The opening sequence is quite possibly the greatest st...

Grand Theft Auto V

The skies are clear, the weather is weather, the beaches are gorgeous, the blood stains on the pavement are sweet, and the frantic yells of pedestrians running from a psycho with a gun in his underwear is satisfying….ah, nothing like it. The game that lets you get away with everything under the sun if you can lose the cops for 3 seconds just to do it all again is back….Grand Theft Auto ....

Killzone Mercenary

- PS Vita

Killzone: Liberation was a game released back in 2006 which was fairly well received. Since then we haven’t seen another portable game from the Killzone franchise until Killzone: Mercenary which was released back in September (this year). Killzone: Mercenary was developed by the newly named Guerrilla Cambridge for the PS Vita. The Vita has had problems when it comes to killer apps (I have a lis...

Beyond: Two Souls

On October 8th, David Cage and Quantic Dream released Beyond: Two Souls in America. As someone who’d seen multiple videos on their last critically acclaimed project Heavy Rain, I strapped myself in for the action-packed, nonlinear rollercoaster that I’d been sold at E3. Some of the major selling points for me were the fast-paced hand-to-hand combat, Ellen Page’s voice acting and what appeared t...

Divinity: Dragon Commander

- PC

Most games can fit into a maybe two genres fairly easily. Call of Duty and Battlefield are First Person Shooters. Mass Effect is an action role playing game. Age of Empires, StarCraft, and Empire Earth are real time strategy games. So where does Divinity Dragon Commander fit in? In part it’s a RTS-RPG-Management-Risk like game. I’ll explain all that in a minute. Graphics- 8/10 Divinity Drag...

Beyond: Two Souls

Quantic Dream, a French interactive entertainment company, has only developed four video games since the founding of the company sixteen years ago. It goes without saying, 'quality over quantity' and that is exactly the credo that the company embodies. Quantic Dream's first title, Omikron: The Nomad Soul, was a commercial failure despite the average ratings it had received. Following this, the...
