Tales of Xillia

- PS3

Being an RPG enthusiast, I'm no stranger to the Tales series. Ever since Tales of Destiny, I've been hooked on Namco's hectic and ludicrously fun alternative to Final Fantasy. Having played the game immediately after finishing with Tales of Graces F (maybe I'll get to reviewing it some day), I could not have been happier. Both this game and Graces F warm my heart that, contrary to popular b...

Pikmin 3

- Wii U

Nintendo, for the most part, is very much different from most of the other major developers out there. They're more akin to indie-developers; creating these weird, quirky, titles - that despite being so much different than the "mainstream" titles ~ they're still fun and refreshing. In fact, that's what most of their titles are based on; being fun, refreshing, memorable experiences. That's o...

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

- PS3

This review is a current representation of the game's state, which would include all changes from previous patches, and it's online community. When this game first hit the shelves there were a lot of mixed opinions about it, so much so that I didn't end up buying it until black Friday because I was afraid to experience buyer's remorse. Let me just say though, I am a fan of action platformer...

Killzone: Shadow Fall

- PS4

Killzone does have a soul: it is gritty, hostile, violent and brutally beautiful to look at and experience. Killzone’s multiplayer is one of those games you don’t play to progress your character, you don’t play for killstreaks, you don’t play to unlock skins or characters, you just play it because it’s viscerally exciting to play. You play it because the maps layout is fantastic. You play i...

The Banner Saga

- PC

I’ve spent the better part of three days playing The Banner Saga. I’ve completed the game twice and each playthrough took anywhere between 9-12 hours for me to complete the game. This game is excellent and well worth the price that I paid for it. The Banner Saga tells multiple stories that all come together toward the end of the game but the path you choose to get there is entirely up to you. T...

DayZ

- PC

History of DayZ DayZ Standalone is what was supposed to be the final and finished product of the popular Arma 2 mod that goes by the same name. The mod was loved for creating a very engaging, long and personal experience that was built upon by other mods later released such as DayZ Epoch and Breaking Point. The Standalone version is the "official” game being published by Bohemia Interactive...

Nidhogg

- PC

Street Fighter II, Super Smash Bros, GoldenEye 007: some games are written into history indelibly for their competitive multiplayer. To play them is to have battle upon battle seared onto your mind, branded there by the white-hot thrill of matching wits and reflexes against your peers. Prepare to add Nidhogg to the list. Not that Nidhogg’s seesawing hyperkinetic fencing matches bear much sim...

Syndicate

- Xbox 360

“In a world where evil corporations continually attempt to strive higher in their next quarterly earnings at the sacrifice of their heart, goodwill, and decency towards others, we witness both Syndicate’s thematic material and a…really awkward parallel here with EA’s decision to reboot this beloved classic as a first person shooter.” Yeah, I wouldn’t put much stock in this one either. For t...

SSX

- Xbox 360

SSX Review After getting the newest SSX game for my girlfriend as she's a huge fan of the classic SSX games, I played it while she was away at her family's got a tad obsessed with it all. I have also played the ones on the game cube and playstation so I knew what to expect. The good I have always loved the look of SSX, the untouched smooth snow mountains and the huge drops giving you...

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

- PS3

How should I begin this review? A downloadable content for the critically acclaimed Far Cry 3 which was a big improvement from Far Cry 2 that isn't even related to the game's main plot line, nor the characters. What is that DLC then? Just say that you bring the action science-fiction movies from the '80s and add silly and cheesy innuendos, and music and guess what? You just summed up the idea o...

Killzone: Shadow Fall

- PS4

My first dive into a Next Gen game really gets me excited to the future of the Playstation 4 as developers unlock the true potential. Visuals are absolutely stunning as you gaze across the crystal clear Vektan planet, along with the depth of colors, reflections, and textures make it all inviting. The game ran smooth outside of some rouge hiccups during intense combat situations. Also, the musi...

The Banner Saga

- PC

Full disclosure: I backed The Banner Saga through Kickstarter over two years ago for a mere (iirc) $10. I figured "why not?". This was just after the release of Faster than Light (FTL) and during the same time as the KS campaigns for Wasteland 2 and Shadowrun Returns, during those early days when Double Fine Adventure had just set a record for highest-funding on Kickstarter and everyone scrambl...

Puppeteer

- PS3

Let me start off by that like Okami this game is criminally underrated and despite it's minor flaws and should have been put on a pedestal.The story,for those who don't know, is about a boy named Kutaro who was kidnapped by a monster named the Moon Bear King,turned into a puppet and gets his head bitten off.He then has to find new heads along the way including four main head that give him new p...

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

- Wii

What are the horror video game franchises that come to mind? There may very well be none other than the Silent Hill series. Perhaps Resident Evil is considered as the best horror game out there but it was always more of an action horror series rather than purely horror based, especially in recent times it is completely action based. The Silent hill series meanwhile has always focused on spookin...

Warframe

- PS4

Many people, including myself, have been resistant to the idea of Free to Play. They call it "Pay To Win" and dismiss it as a quick money grab filled with unnecessary microtransactions. What I can safely say about Warframe is that it is NOT "Pay to Win" and, though it has microtransactions, they are not necessary to enjoy or advance in the game. Okay...with that out of the way...on to the good...

Battlefield 4

- PS4

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Battlefield 4 was meant to be the flag bearer for a new generation of console shooters. Everything from its glossy marketing campaign to the circumstance that surrounded the next coming of one of the most popular modern multiplayer shooters insinuated that DICE and EA were on to something big. And in that regard, they succeeded. Battlef...

War Thunder

- PS4

From the limited number of combative-flight games that I’ve played, no game has ever truly captured the sheer grandeur that surrounds taking the helm of a winged automaton and dogfighting for dear life. But as you clear the canopy of clouds for the first time and enter the vast aerial expanses of War Thunder, be they snow-capped peaks or rolling fields, you get the sense that this isn’t just...

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

- PS4

Let's face it - Assassin's Creed isn't what it used to be. The original Assassin's Creed games were quite amazing and almost revolutionary, but over the years, the franchise has worsened, and Assassin's Creed 3's poor reviews truly show for it. However, with a very different protagonist, a beautiful and expansive open-world, and new gameplay opportunities, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag has qui...

“How could I every care about rectangles and squares?” Well that is a good question but before you leave I suggest you stay and read how Mike Bithell gave some generic shapes a name and a little personality that ends up creating a group of characters that you will care for and have fun playing as. Artificial Life Solutions is a company that designs various artificial intelligence solutions t...

Set several years after the events of Killzone 3 with the destruction of planet Helghan known as the "Terracide" due to nuclear weapons developed by Jorhan Stahl backfiring on him and his people, due to remaining ISA troop interventio...
