Throwback Review: Geometry…

580
Alright, let’s go back to the past real quick.   Cut back to 2005, and the Xbox 360 launches with a fat handful of titles. Most of them were sport titles, but there were games within the launch library that looked set to stun. The revolutionary graphics of Perfect Dark…

Genesis Alpha One…

Ahh. Once more unto the breach lads.   It’s a shame that we are the humans that were born too late to explore the planet with a boat, were born too early to travel the stars but were the ones to have invented the television. So instead of being…

Life is Strange…

Damn, this took a while, didn’t it?   I was expecting this back in late November or early December, but DONTNOD wanted time to hone in on their craft, their life, their passion for what is their most popular franchise. By “time”, they mean “make the episodes twice as…

Bungie and Activision…

American Ninja Warrior…

Throwback Review: Fallout…

809
This is gunna hurt me more than it hurts Bethesda.   Cut back to Christmas 2008, specifically my Christmas 2008. The Pogues “Fairytale of New York” has played for the 40th time today, and it’s not even 11AM, you’ve had your first ever mince pie and you’re wondering why…

Guacamelee! 2 Review…

523
Truth be told, the original Guacamelee! wasn’t exactly the most appetizing Enchilada.   It didn’t feel like it was setting out to blow any minds, merely existing to fill some undetermined spot for Metroid-Vanias. It was perfectly adequate, with punchy combat, a vibrant aesthetic pushed even further into remembrance thanks to…

Y’know, originally there was going to be a Worst Games list here.   There was a lot of crap released this year, aside from some truly great entries, and as much as I want to kneel down and dig into some of the embarrassing titles released in the past…
