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...

Castlevania Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition

- PC

I looked forward to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, so in preparation I decided to play the first one. Especially since I knew about the _supposed_ cool twist in the end. (Read the spoiler below) Short and to the point: A protagonist wants revenge because "something" killed his wife. It's an average game that tries to be something that it isn't. It doesn't do hack'n'slash as good as Go...

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

- 3DS

Zero Escape: Virtues Last Reward 3DS Virtues Last Reward, a 3DS and PS Vita title, is the second game in the Zero Escape trilogy. This review will focus on the 3DS addition and compare it directly to the previous title, 9 Persons, 9 Hours, 9 Doors. Virtues Last Reward is a visual novel, a style of game in which you’re told a story and periodically asked to make a choice that will dictate wha...

Tomb Raider

- PC

So I finally beat Tomb Raider after a year of being out. And I have to say, it was a very......average game to say the least. For starters, the story was unbearably boring for me, I just wanted it to end so badly that I did a lot of speed jumping and whatnot. A very bad story that really didn't have much effort put into it, with characters that are unimportant and very uninteresting. One...

Proteus

- PC

Times have changed since the last time I’ve bothered reviewing one of these exploration games/walking simulators. When first making a splash into this sea of gameplay-minimizing art games with Dear Esther, I honestly didn’t expect to ever bother jumping back into other titles similar to that art house ideal like Passage or Every Day The Same Dream. It’s strange to see just how influential one...

The Last of Us: Left Behind

- PS3

The Last of Us was a gem made by Naughty Dog, a studio owned by Sony Computer Entertainment, and it won many awards for its great narrative and gameplay which we needed for a long time. Unfortunately it did not win VGX's Game of the Year award, it did win couple of them in other award giving ceremonies like D.I.C.E. Now this is going to be a short review for its anticipated DLC, Left Behind....

Blacklight Retribution

- PS4

Blacklight:Retribution places the you in a futuristic FPS setting, there is no backstory and no single player modes with the exception of a Holodeck training stage. Graphics wise it's easy enough on the eyes and the same can be said of the sound, it isn't going to win any awards but what it does is at least satisfactory. Anyone familiar with FPS games will find nothing new here in terms of g...

BioShock: Infinite

- PS3

When you start messing with space, time, and/or alternate universes is when my head starts to hurt. So many things can be going on that you desperately try to grasp every detail and make sense of it all. Bioshock: Infinite however does a nice job slowly piecing everything together, giving out small doses, keeping the plot mysterious yet interesting, instead of giving out one massive helping of...

Contrast

- Xbox 360

“Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings – always darker, emptier and simpler.” – Friedrich Nietzsche Out of all the games I’ve played in 2013 I like to vaunt over for their artsy qualities while also having to recognize a sheer lack of polish and/or several design problems within them, Contrast is probably my favorite of those flawed few. It presents a problem from a scoring standpoint be...

Outlast

- PS4

Outlast is another in a vast series of first-person horror games in which its premise revolves around something unforgivably unrealistic. In this case, it’s the delving into a formerly abandoned home for the clinically insane by our protagonist, a pursuit that I can honestly say ranks somewhere in between ‘going downstairs at night’ and ‘rollerblading across the Grand Canyon’ on my personal sca...

Diablo III

- PC

Diablo 3 launched on PC in May of 2012 after many years of development and waiting. Amidst the buzz and excitement, though, was frustration and dissapointment. Errors at launch, a real money auction house and always online DRM were the main issues fans had, and they hindered many players enjoyment of the game. While the errors have long since been sorted out, most of the games flaws still remai...

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

- PC

Pros & Cons + An intuitive control style which allows the user to control two people simultaneously. + A charming, quaint affair that lasts with you well over completion. + Linear paths can lead to short game-play but the puzzles help to make up for this. - Encountered one or two glitches that resulted in complete chapter re-starts. - Until a player has mastered the curve the control s...

FIFA 14

- PS4

The pitch is sacred ground in most parts of the world, and by that respect I look forward to paying my respects each year with a new iteration of FIFA. Some years, the respect is reciprocated; other years, the game simply “updates squads” and improves graphics. But while the latter is always true at its most basic degree (or so we’d hope), this year’s FIFA is special. This year, FIFA is on the...

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

- 3DS

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is a link to the past in a chance to revisit one of Nintendo's greatest games, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I have nothing but the fondest of memories growing up with this classic, and to this day, remains one of my all time favorites. I was a little puzzled with Nintendo's decision opting to create a sequel in the same world instead of ju...

Olliolli

- PS Vita

Platform: PS Vita (Digital Download) Price: $13 ($10 with PS+) Gameplay: skateboarding, autoscrolling, combos I was never a skateboarder as a kid. Okay, I owned a skateboard. I could ollie. That's about it. But I really did love to play games about skateboarding. Even if it seemed a bit unrealistic to be grinding on a helicopter blade, it was fun to see those points rack up, kinda like an...
