Ride to Hell: Retribution

- Xbox 360

*Warning: In order to pick apart certain story problems, I’m going to have to spoil some parts of it. Not that you’ll ultimately care about…well…anything in this story, but I just wanted to mention that.* If there’s one thing I can assuredly say about this mess of a game it’s that Ride to Hell: Retribution (RtH) is quite an experience. Not in the sense that the term “experience” is usually...

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

- Wii U

My first and only play through of The Wind Waker was quite the forgettable experience....literally. All I remembered was how I hated this game, and disliked the whole cel-shaded art direction. Other than that, I can't really say why I hated the game. I believe I never gave it a fair shot and judged it solely on some petty changes. I have been wanting to give it another go with an open mind and...

Ryse: Son of Rome

- Xbox One

It is no secret that Ryse: Son of Rome is Microsoft's showpiece. This game is what makes people hopeful that Microsoft didn't exactly drop the ball with the hardware in the unit. Does the game hold up to the expectations of a brand new IP competing in a already crowded market? Does Ryse give you something different than what you're use to? Read more to find out. Graphics Ryse Is beautiful...

Tearaway

- PS Vita

Games like Tearaway remind me why I love gaming so much. Now, that may sound like a bold statement, but getting into games such as Battlefield, COD and FIFA can take away from the truly amazing nature of gaming. Those games are by no means bad, but they are no Tearaway. Tearaway is a platformer at heart and the majority of the game will be spend traversing across various obstacles and platfo...

The Last Of Us

- PS3

The Last of Us is the only game i have ever played that has actually invoked emotion. I am not easily made emotional. Naughty Dog has used amazing story-telling and a near perfect story line to actually involve the player. I have never played a game so perfect in my entire gaming life. The best thing about The Last of Us is that it doesn't try to re-invent the whole zombie apocalypse thing. It...

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

- PS4

Super Heroes are my thing. And Marvel Super Heroes always held my attention the longest with their adult themes, mature handling of death, incredible imagination, and purely amazing narrative. It is without a doubt that when Traveler's Tales started to make Lego games, that I was thrilled. Their first iteration: Lego Star Wars was masterful in its scope, humor, and playability. The sequal...

Dream: Hidden Adventure

I just want to review the game I currently playing while away from my xbox. Don't judge. This is a good time killer. A free-to-play toy for every dreamer with an iPad Do you believe in parallel universes? Yes or No, you can’t deny that there’s one each of us travels to every night - the elusive universe of dreams. And there are people, who dared giving it flesh in a new hidden object game...

Batman: Arkham Origins

- PC

I had an opportunity to play Batman Arkham: Origins, the anticipated third installment to the critically acclaimed Arkham series. I’d never played a Batman game before, so I was eager to see what all of the hype was about. Many fans levied their criticism at the fact that Arkham: Origins was under the care of newer, more inexperienced developers. Toward the beginning, this wasn’t readily appare...

BioShock Infinite - Burial At Sea

- PS3

This review might contain SPOILERS for Bioshock Infinite main campaign. Burial At Sea might seem like an off shoot what if scenario with main game protagonist Booker DeWitt & Elizabeth being transplanted from Colombia to Rapture but because of Infinite's ending off multiple possibilities it makes this return visit to Rapture a more meaningful experience. The story sees this version of Boo...

Puppeteer

- PS3

Few games make feel privileged and blessed to be a gamer. Ocarina of Time did it when it came out and so did Okami. Still, in this age of AAA-gaming where 'Perfect Game' means having the best graphics or turning around and insulting the player, imagine my surprise when I came across The Puppeteer. STORY: You are Kutaro, a boy who's been spirited away in his sleep and forced to serve the...

Portal 2

- PS3

Exceptionally well-written gaming narratives are hard to come by, even these days. It takes a truly exceptional group of people to pull of a non-heavyhanded, gripping story in a medium that consists of tearing into aliens with a chainsaw. It takes an act of God to pull it off in a PUZZLE game. Valve is certainly one of God's greatest acts, somehow managing to pull of the impossible and create a...

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.

Machinarium

- PC

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...
