Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

- PS3

After the launch of 'Uncharted 2: Among Thieves', Naughty Dog started noticing they had more people in the company's employ than ever before, and realized that all could be put to good use, so the decision was made to split the team into two so that each side could work on their own game. One team was working on 'Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception', and it was riding on the hype of 'Uncharted 2'...

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

- PS3

It was E3 2009, half a year since its debut trailer at the Spike VGA's, that Evan Wells took the stage at Sony's press conference to demonstrate the singleplayer portion of 'Uncharted 2: Among Thieves' after hyping up their multiplayer announcement and beta about a month prior. The proceeding demonstration would be a trigger to unexpected anticipation for the release for what some consider the...

ZombiU

- Wii U

You wake up alone. Disoriented. In a panicked state and in unfamiliar surroundings. You awake to the realisation that you will soon be dead. Your only witness in this broken world is the disembodied voice that barks orders through your ‘Prepper Pad’ - a 21st century survival tool that’s an imaginative cross between a tablet and a Swiss Army Knife. You are the latest recruit of The Prepper, a...

BioShock

- PS3

Bioshock could be called one of the first truly next-gen games of this current generation, something that couldn't be done before. Ken Levine, known for his work on System Shock 2, brings us a very-well written, atmospheric first-person experience, with game mechanics that had never been seen before up to this point, making it the most revolutionary FPS since Half-Life 2. It's the second greate...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

In 2004, Jason Rubin announced during a speech at a D.I.C.E. conference in which he berated publishers for not treating developers better, that he was leaving Naughty Dog. Andy Gavin soon announced afterwards that would be joining his longtime friend in leaving his position as co-head. This would leave successors Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra and the rest of the team with a challenging d...

The Last Of Us

- PS3

The Last of Us, a game that by its very name speaks misfortune. Such is the life of the characters in this game. You follow the tales of Joel; a man who has lost everything and has stopped caring about anything in life and has done some horrible things, yet who I sympathize with because if it were me that all that had happened to, I would be a sadistic bastard myself. He has made tough choices...

Tales of Graces F

- PS3

The latest in the Tales series to be released to the West, Tales of Graces f follows a group of youngsters brought together by intertwining paths on a quest to save the world from some guy that is evil and stuff (how original!). OK it's not as simple or as cliché as that, although as you can guess since it's usually the case with the majority of JRPGs like this, it does at one stage turn into s...

Metal Gear

- Xbox 360

I've never done a review for this site and I'm pretty much doing this for fun. Feel free to tell me how to improve. First of all, I never actually played this on Xbox 360 (although I have it for that on the HD collection). I experienced this on my PS Vita. I had heard a lot about the Metal Gear series from my friends and the internet, but I wanted to play through the series in release order....

Metroid Other M

- Wii

(((((Note to readers))))) I will not spoil much about the game, only want to mention some of the ENTICING things about Metroid Other 'M'. I also hope that those who have never played or heard of this game to remember to be careful and to watch out for trailers of Other M as they carry with them what I believe to be HEAVY SPOILERS. Now, on to my brief spoiler free review of Metroid Other "M"...

DmC: Devil May Cry

- Xbox 360

Warning, this review has some mild spoilers. I'm going to be honest with you right now, the very first time I saw the original teaser trailer for DmC, Ninja Theory's take on Capcom's niche but cult hit franchise "Devil may cry" I was less than impressed by the new direction they were taking one of my much beloved franchises, I hated Dante's new look which has been described on more than one...

Kentucky Route Zero: Act 1

- PC

Kentucky Route Zero is quite the odd little video game. It's both a charming, nostalgia inducing point 'n' clicker -- and a Lynchian nightmare complete with crazy characters and esoteric dialogue. After beating the first of five planned acts, I was left feeling like a stranger had entered my house, started making an omelet in my kitchen, and then looked at me as if to say "Why aren't you choppi...

The Last Of Us

- PS3

We have grown to expect excellence from Naughty Dog. Since the early days of Crash Bandicoot to the wild, Indiana Jones like, adventures of Uncharted; they have always made their games the cream of the crop. The big question is has Naughty Dog taken a misstep here going into a genre that has been done so much that the village bicycle looks like a refreshing proposition? Unless you have been...

Octodad

- PC

Octodaaaaaaaaaaaad. Nobody suspects a thing. Octodaaaaaaaaaaaaad. He's got a good thing going........ Ever since I found out about Octodad: Dadliest Catch coming to the PS4 I had to see what the hell Octodad was. After watching the trailer I knew I had to play this quirky game so I decided to download the first game that was release back in 2010. The premise to this short game is that you ar...

Gravity Rush

- PS Vita

With little “you must play this or you must die a horrible death” games on the PS Vita I would forgive you to think Gravity rush, which is a gravity (go figure) focused action adventure game, would be a game to miss. However, there is far more to this game that gave me a different, yet wonderful experience on the Vita. You start this game as a women (wearing very revealing Japanese style clo...

Hitman: Absolution

- Xbox 360

Hitman Absolution is the very first Hitman game I've ever played, and I have some mixed thoughts about it that I thought I'd share: (beware, spoilers ahead) PLOT: The game's story consists of Agent 47, a Hitman of "The Agency" who is assigned to murder Diana, a former member of The Agency that went rogue. 47 wounds her, and as she is dying, she asks 47 to protect a girl, who has been geneti...

NCAA 14

- PS3

The NCAA Football franchise has suffered some lean years of late, especially last year’s entry; when the “Infinity Engine” was announced for Madden NFL 13 to introduce physics to its gameplay—a feature NCAA Football 13 would be lacking—fans of college football were left waiting anxiously for this year’s release. With only months remaining before the start of a new console generation, NCAA Footb...

The addition of Ultimate team is a welcome site , you can play as some of the greatest college players to step foot on the field such as Andre Ware , Peyton Mannin...

Rayman Origins

- PS Vita

Rayman is back and like film makers wanting more from their heroes, Rayman has his own origin story in this latest title Rayman: Origins (developed and published by Ubisoft). “Yay” I hear you cry? Well I wouldn’t celebrate just yet. I wouldn’t blame if you didn’t know this is an Origin story as the story is never really explained. The start of the game has Rayman and friends sleeping under a tr...

Escape Plan

- PS Vita

Escape plan is a downloadable puzzle game developed by Fun Bits Interactive and is produced by Chris Millar, known for his previous work on the Fat Princess franchise, for the PS Vita. The plot to this puzzle game is in the name, to PLAN an ESCAPE. I might be using the work plan a bit loosely here, as I will explain in a moment, but the idea is you have to help two, weird, gimp like characters...
