Return 2 Games is planned to be made up of seven Books where the game world is a pop-up book, paper style. Book of … Continue reading Book of Demons Review
Assassin’s Creed first released in 2007, and two years later saw its first sequel. After that, fans of the franchise got a new entry every year from 2009 to 2015 with the release of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. With a technically flawed release in 2014 with Unity, many fans began to feel burned out on the … Continue reading Assassin’s Creed Origins Review
Stardew Valley hits all the right notes and checks all the right boxes as a feature rich farming based RPG. If it can be done better, I'd certainly like to see it, but no one person could make a better game for this genre than Eric Barone has done. I'd say it's the peak, the Harvest Moon game many of us always wanted.
Back when it came out I and many other people considered Black Flag a watershed for the series and rightfully. Simply put: This is the next watershed and if they can continue to crank out games like this at this level of quality the I hope they making these games for as long as they sell because I'll never get tired of something like this. I'll welcome a game like this every year with wide open arms.
A little over a year ago I posted my review of vanilla Destiny, which I gave a superb 4.5 star rating. That review encompassed the game from launch to three weeks after launch with a little over 85 hours invested in it and having done everything but the raid. Now here we are a month and a half removed from the release of Destiny’s first major expansion, The Taken King, and it is time to review it all over again.
Seven years. That's how long I considered Knights of the Old Republic my all-time favorite video game. It's still a top five, but it was knocked off by Red Dead Redemption back in 2010. Still, that's a good amount of time considering during that seven year (well almost) span a lot of really great games … Continue reading Star Wars – Knights of the Old Republic Review
What do you get when you cross the best elements out of a Grand Theft Auto game, the Metal Gear series, stealth games like Splinter Cell, and for grins an almost MMO lite online mode for a bonus? You get Metal Gear V: The Phantom Pain which is easily in contention for Game of the … Continue reading Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Review
This gaming series has been a frustration for me. Frustrating because I have played and tried each game in this series and did my darnedest to fall in love with the games and just couldn't because some of the gameplay and combat mechanics were not to my liking. I just couldn't get on board and … Continue reading The Witcher III – Wild Hunt Review
Rockstar wowed the majority of us a year ago when they released Grand Theft Auto V on PS3 and Xbox 360. Even on old hardware, it was an excellent looking game that still looks better than some games released on the new systems. Now that Rockstar has released the game for PS4 and Xbox One, … Continue reading Grand Theft Auto V (PS4) Review
The Last of Us was an undeniable hit when it landed a year ago on PS3, both with PS3 owners and critics. The game received perfect scores galore (including from me) and over 200 Game of the Year awards (again, including mine). For me, it was one of the swan songs for the PS3. It … Continue reading The Last of Us Remastered Review
I am a huge fan of the Assassin's Creed games so admittedly I approach these games with a healthy benefit of the doubt and positive bias in place. I hope I'm not an outright fanboy and I don't think I am since I can harp on some quibbles and nitpicks I had from previous games, … Continue reading Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Review
This has proven a hard review to even begin. Not because I don’t have anything to say about Grand Theft Auto V, as a matter of fact I could say plenty about the game, but rather because I haven’t wanted to stop playing it. We’ve seen some truly amazing games this year: BioShock Infinite and … Continue reading Grand Theft Auto V Review
