Escape Dead Island [Review]

Nov
24
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, ...

Never Alone [Review]

Nov
24
2014

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
24
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 Fall: Episode 1 [Review]

Nov

2014

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 4 [Review]

Nov
22
2014

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 ...

Dungeon of the Endless [Review]

Nov

2014

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 ...

This War of Mine [Review]

Nov
21
2014

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 ...

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue [Review]

Nov
19
2014

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 ...

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric [Review]

Nov

2014

As far as has-beens go in the world of gaming, very few have hit harder times than Sonic the Hedgehog. You'd think that he has been hitting the bottle for a long time now, especially after "The Incident" in 2006. He got a reprieve when games like Sonic Colors and ...

Assassin’s Creed: Unity [Review]

Nov

2014

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 ...

Endless Legend [Review]

Nov

2014

While Civilization: Beyond Earth has done well enough and garnered fairly positive reviews, it also didn't push the envelope far enough to really be the Civilization game of the future. It took the safer route of applying most of what Civilization V had into an extraterrestrial setting. So with the ...

Lords of the Fallen [Review]

Nov

2014

In 2014, Dark Souls II was definitely one of the biggest multi-platform releases due to its signature action role-playing gameplay that pulls no punches when it comes to difficulty and depth. It's no surprise then that other developers will try to replicate and improve upon that style of gameplay for ...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare [Review]

Nov

2014

Call of Duty: Ghosts was more or less a low point for Activision's cash cow, having sold much less than expected and with a crowd that have become more or less jaded by the annual releases and the same old same old. It's time to set the "If it ain't ...

Dreamfall Chapters Book One: Reborn [Review]

Nov

2014

Once again, another adventure game in episodic format has come before us with promises of a good story and much interactive substance. But then again, we could also be treated to either another walking simulator or just a long wait for the next part like with Double Fine's Broken Age. ...
