EA Sports UFC Review

June 27, 2014 // 1 Comment

Let me preface this review by saying that not only am I a huge MMA fan in general but a pretty diehard fan of MMA games in general.  So much so that I actually downloaded the EA Sports UFC demo on both XBOX One and PS4.  XBOX One because it was available hours before it’s PS4 counterpart and I simply didn’t want to wait and PS4 [...]

The second of the two major Next-Gen exclusives arriving this month has arrived in the form of Infamous: Second Son.  This time it is Sony’s turn to showcase what they have in store for its dedicated fan base.  In Second Son you take control of Delsin Rowe who finds himself the recipient of a set of Conduit powers after a transport [...]

Titanfall Review

March 12, 2014 // 0 Comments

The time has finally arrived, the first big Next Gen exclusive has launched.  While Titanfall certainly had a whirlwind of hype pushing it forward the real question would be whether or not it was worth your time.  Some seemed unsure of the lack of a single player campaign in which the game launched with.  It should come as no surprise though [...]

Outlast Review

February 14, 2014 // 1 Comment

Horror influenced video games walk a very fine line within the video game industry.  There are in an essence one of two ways that things can play out.  You can attempt to be scary which in itself is tricky do for the sole fact of creating an outright scary atmosphere within the realm of a video game is no easy task.  The other is having horror [...]

You’re Next Review

January 11, 2014 // 0 Comments

I had been hearing about this film for quite some time.  Having made its run of the festival circuits in 2011 to a pretty good response I was surprised to see it take close to two years to get it’s theatrical release.  Though with Wingard and Barrett’s involvement with the well received horror anthology V/H/S/, it seemed that the [...]

Xbox One Review

December 15, 2013 // 1 Comment

While I owned both a PS3 and a XBOX 360 last generation I definitely considered myself more of a fan of the 360 overall.  Going into this generation I honestly wasn’t so sure how I felt about what Microsoft was offering up as it’s new entry into the console world.  Truth be told my initial reaction was if I was only getting one [...]

Ryse Son of Rome Review

November 27, 2013 // 1 Comment

It’s somewhat of a miracle the Ryse in its current state exists at all when you truly think about it.  What was originally intended to be a Kinect title on the 360, had to be gutted and completely reconfigured to be a live action launch title for the XBOX One.  Truth be told I was pretty skeptical of the title at all prior to seeing some [...]
