Art house games are becoming more prominent these days for some reason. While they're still pretty much niche, experimental titles are gaining more exposure since games like Limbo, Dear Esther, and Gone Home. There are then games like Serena that even have interesting real-life backstories that led to their development. ...

The Holiday Season may seem to be over a month too late for scary games, but it's not like lights can't be turned off and headphones worn at any time to get that interactive audio-visual experience of being psychologically manipulated into experiencing terror by a video game. So if you ...

Ever since Valve came out with their hit title Portal, there have been many who worked to capture that same magic that the series had, right down to the songs composed by Jonathan Coulton. However, it's going to be often when a developer actually gets close in terms of the ...

Dead State [Review]

Dec

There are quite a few games that contain the word "Dead" in its name. That includes the classic Dead Space, a lot of zombie games like Dead Island and House of the Dead, and so on. It seems that the "Dead" genre is quite alive, if you can put it ...

When the Tomb Raider reboot was finally released in 2013, it was fairly successful, even though Square Enix doesn't think of it as that big of a hit. This paved the way for an upcoming sequel, which is coming out as a timed exclusive for the Xbox One. So while ...

It seems like racing games are kind of coming back these days. There are the console mainstays like Mario Kart, Gran Turismo, Forza, and maybe GRID, as well as countless iterations of Need for Speed. But then, this year saw some new racing game IPs, and it hasn't started out ...

Escape Dead Island [Review]

Nov

2014

The Dead Island series is confusing in terms of whether it should be liked or hated. The first game was actually pretty good despite its faults, and Dead Island Riptide was much of the same in a different setting. While we're still waiting for the release of Dead Island 2, ...

Over the years, there have been artful games of different kinds, telling various stories set in both realistic and fantastical locations with a whole host of themes. It's nice to see one that tackles a different culture that is not often touched upon in any media, which is what Never ...

Dragon Age: Inquisition [Review]

Nov

2014

So continues the curious case of the Dragon Age series by Bioware, a title with very interesting lore, but also rather inconsistent gameplay. The first game was more like a top-down RPG for the PC, then the second one was more like Mass Effect 2. Seems like this new one ...

The combining of genres is something that's not really unique to just one art form. It has been going on for a long time now in visual art, and it has always been such a big deal in music as well. In video games though, it has only started to ...

Far Cry 3 was a hit when it came out due to its gameplay and interesting antagonist. Being a series that's about open world gameplay in a contemporary setting, the games have shown the breadth of possibilities that most haven't even imagined. But this new one being way up in ...

It seems that roguelike games are aplenty these days, and good ones can stay fun for a very long time due to its randomly generated gameplay. Plenty of possibilities have been made manifest, like with FTL: Faster Than Light that was the smash hit of 2012, or the platformer Spelunky ...

While the line read by Ron Perlman in Fallout 3 that goes, "War... War never changes." may be true, the way games handle the subject of war has certainly changed over the years. Every genre has its own take on war, but it used to be all about gunning people ...

At this point, Assassin's Creed: Unity has become the butt of jokes with its disappearing NPCs (and their faces), big performance drawbacks, and microtransaction chests. Its twin brother sat a bit on the sidelines, dodging a good bit of the negative attention, especially since it hasn't been released on the ...

Publishers like Activision and EA being at the business end of criticism and scrutiny over regurgitating recycled material for profit is something that has permeated in gaming culture seemingly since ancient history. Ubisoft has since joined that list due to their frequent releases of Assassin's Creed games, which may have ...
