SJW’s Attack THQ Nordic Over AMA

February 28, 2019 // 0 Comments

February ends just like any other day, with the professionally offended and morally superior Social Justice Warriors crying, planning boycotts, and showing how tolerant the “progressive” mob is. This time, the target of their hateful mob justice is video game publisher THQ Nordic. What crime did THQ Nordic commit to warrant the reeeing [...]

Saints Row IV Review

August 14, 2013 // 7 Comments

My favorite gaming genre is third person shooter set in an open world. This generation has produced many of these types of games, and a lot of them have been really great. Riding horses and mowing down outlaws in Red Dead Redemption was awesome; skydiving and blowing stuff up in Just Cause 2 was great; visiting historically accurate settings like [...]

WWE ’13 Review

November 8, 2012 // 1 Comment

Yuke’s and THQ could a big step forward with the WWE license last year when they scrapped the RAW vs. Smackdown name and gutted the engine to give the series its first true overhaul in years. WWE ’12 ended up being the best playing wrestling game of the generation thanks to the all the big improvements made. This year, Yuke’s is [...]

WWE ’12 Review

November 22, 2011 // 7 Comments

The past few years have been rough for fans of wrestling games. On one hand, the presentation of the annual WWE simulation series Smackdown vs. RAW continued to evolve and become more and more like its real life counterpart. On the other hand, the actually gameplay itself was boring and marred by poor AI, and even online play against real human [...]

WWE All Stars Review

April 12, 2011 // 0 Comments

  WWE’s video game universe has returned to the world of arcade style fighting, and the end result is a game that puts every Smackdown vs. RAW to shame in terms of overall enjoyment and excitement. Sporting one of, if not the, best rosters in a WWE game, All Stars features 30 of WWE’s best (15 current Superstars and 15 Legends). Among [...]
