Rainbow Moon (PS4) Review

March 1, 2016 // 0 Comments

SideQuest Studios’ wonderful RPG Rainbow Moon released on PS4 a couple of weeks ago. I originally reviewed this game back in 2012 when it released for PS3. As such, I’m reposting that review for the PS4 version. This is release is just Rainbow Moon on PS4. There’s not much different, it’s the same game. Having said that, it [...]

Fallout 4 Review

January 5, 2016 // 0 Comments

It’s been a long time in coming… too long… but at last a new Fallout game is upon us and it’s very good. The good news is: A review like this is a mere formality since many of us have already broken the 100 hour figure on this. What more need be said, right? [...]

Star Wars – Knights of the Old Republic Review

October 14, 2015 // 0 Comments

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 were released. They just [...]

Unrest Review

July 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

Unrest is an RPG that is vastly different than anything I would usually play. There’s no real combat in the game and there are no puzzles to solve. There’s no leveling up or experience gained. There’s not even one main character to play as. Unrest is set in ancient India during a time of riots and general unrest (hence the name). [...]

South Park – The Stick of Truth Review

March 14, 2014 // 1 Comment

South Park: The Stick of Truth had a tumultuous development cycle that saw its original publisher (THQ) go out of business and multiple delays to the point that many people assumed the game would eventually be canceled. Thankfully, the game wasn’t canceled and finally released earlier this month. Its release shows that Ubisoft was wise to [...]

Borderlands 2 Review

September 24, 2012 // 4 Comments

Good news minions, if you enjoyed Borderlands then you will absolutely love Borderlands 2. The sequel to the surprise (to me) hit doesn’t change with the formula that made the first so successful. It’s more of the same, and that’s not bad thing as Borderlands 2 is bigger and better than the original. It’s everything you’d hope a sequel [...]

Borderlands 2 (PC) Review

September 20, 2012 // 8 Comments

For the Borderlands fan in a hurry: Yes, it’s everything you hoped it would be and then some. Everything you loved about part 1 taken to the next level. Buy it immediately. Thanks for reading! There. That would be enough for me personally and I knew this was going to be the case in the months leading up to release but I had to come up for [...]

Mass Effect 2 Review

May 28, 2011 // 5 Comments

When the first Mass Effect game came out I had neither a PC that could handle it nor an Xbox 360, and so I missed out on it. When this one, Mass Effect 2, came out I still had neither a PC that could handle it nor an Xbox 360, and so I assumed that once again I’d miss out on it. But as luck would have it, Mass Effect 2 arrived on Playstation [...]

Mass Effect Review

What can I say about Mass Effect?  For those that haven’t played it before, it is one of the best gaming experiences you can have.  For those that have played it, it’s still one of the best gaming experiences you can have. Our journey begins as Commander Shephard, or your own custom made character if you choose to go that route, and the crew [...]
