Dec

2014

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, ...

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 ...

Far Cry 4 [Review]

Nov

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 ...

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue [Review]

Nov

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

2014

It's that time of the year again when Codemasters has to put out an F1 game. This time though, F1 itself had rule changes, as well as a new car design with a new style of nose and a 1.6 liter turbocharged V6 engine. There's also a new driver lineup ...

It seems that the survival horror genre has been experiencing a reawakening. With recent releases like Alien: Isolation and a lot of the popular horror titles in the last few years like Amnesia, Outlast, Slender, and so on. From this transformation and resurgence out of the decline experienced in the ...

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel [Review]

Oct

2014

Gearbox Software's star franchise (and one of the reasons why Aliens: Colonial Marines turned out bad) has made loot in first-person shooters quite cool, and it does a lot of things right even in the first game alone. But with the second game, it seems that not a lot of ...

There have been quite a few Sherlock Holmes games recently, like the interestingly titled The Testament of Sherlock Holmes. For those who are fans of the Arthur Conan Doyle classic, then you can get your fill in this day and age that does not include Benedict Cumberbatch or Robert Downey ...

2014

J.R.R. Tolkien's legacy is a rich world that has inspired most of the high fantasy genre as we know it today. His books are even been given justice with The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and perhaps The Hobbit trilogy as well (if you like them). It hasn't fared that ...

Much can be said of Dark Souls II, especially when it comes to its hardcore community that is composed of people who are adamant about everything proper and "decent" with the Souls series, from the challenge to the little details that has made the games rather popular. With this expansion ...

Games, like with other forms of media, give their audiences subjective experiences that are then formalized and described as objectively as humanly possible. There are those that get praised by the majority, while a lot of others languish far in the background or even deep in the bin. But there ...
