Sunset Overdrive Review

July 29, 2015 // 2 Comments

This is a great looking game. Obviously it is a cartoonish style as opposed to more life like games like Watch_Dogs, The Last of Us and countless others, but it is very well done and very colorful. All the scenery is fantastic, from the buildings to the abandoned cars in the streets. I really like the design and the coloring of the OD’s, and [...]

The Witcher III – Wild Hunt Review

July 24, 2015 // 0 Comments

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 get excited. Until now. The third time [...]

Not An Official Review: Dying Light

February 9, 2015 // 1 Comment

I’ve had Dying Light since release when I received a digital code to review the game. That was a few weeks ago. I am progressing extremely slowly, but at this point I’ve seen enough of the game to write the review. However it comes with the caveat that I will not be assigning a score to the game, for two reasons: I haven’t [...]

Assassin’s Creed Unity Review

January 22, 2015 // 1 Comment

I deliberately held off on doing this review because very few if any outlets have bothered to give this game a fair shake post patches. The bulk of what you see out there is either 1.0 or 1.1 when the game was in a far worse state. As of the date I write this: January 1, 2015, the game is vastly improved and evolved from its launch day form. The [...]

Grand Theft Auto V (PS4) Review

November 24, 2014 // 0 Comments

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, it looks even better. For starters, there’s increased [...]

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

October 19, 2014 // 3 Comments

Today we shall look at a fun, but slightly flawed game, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Middle-Earth is an action adventure RPG romp into the universe of the Lord of the Rings. With that established and without further adieu, let’s get this show on the road. I believe that I have stated on numerous occasions that am not the most picky when [...]

Watch_Dogs Review

June 4, 2014 // 2 Comments

Ever since E3 2012, Watch Dogs has been one of the most hyped and anticipated titles on any system and for good reason. The now near legendary and certainly controversial video that Ubisoft showed at the E3 was a jaw dropping, gorgeous looking game that teased a slick cyberhack Grand Theft Auto variant with everything “cranked to 11.” To be [...]

Infamous: Second Son Review

March 26, 2014 // 2 Comments

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 [...]

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Review

December 22, 2013 // 2 Comments

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, whether it be the KBM controls on the first one or [...]
