Who says a game has to be original in order to be good, eh?   I say forget that, and rock your inspirations with flair and finesse, but only in moderation. Yeah, it’s absolutely fine if you want to say, base a game on the mechanics and world-building present…

Shining Resonance Refrain…

Y’know, Sega, you’re an odd publisher when it comes to games.   When you’re not busy making another questionable Sonic game, you’re on the prowl looking to make obscure IPs that, while great, are played by about 50 people. Alpha Protocol, Resonance of Fate, Anarchy Reigns, so on and…

NCAA Football: Gone…

July 9, 2013 (five years ago today), NCAA Football 14 released to the public on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.  The EA Sports mega-hit scored over $1.3 Billion since the title’s release in 1998.  You could say that the game scored EA Sports many touchdowns.  However, two months after…

Throwback Review: Assassin’s…

I mentioned in my Sonic Generations throwback review that I’d be spending a decent chunk of this summer catching up on franchises I’d missed out on when I was younger, and Assassin’s Creed another series I’m working my way through. I started with the second installment because I’d heard the first…

Next Up Hero…

Okay, Xbox Game Pass, I see your plan here. You sucker people in with the great games you have on offer for 10 dollars a month and when you promise all of these incredible new games arriving on Game Pass the same day they’re released? Boom! They’re all bad.…

Throwback Review: Sonic…

Sonic the Hedgehog, for whatever reason, wasn’t a childhood franchise of mine. I was too busy hanging around on the Comet Observatory or messing about in Scribblenauts to bother with the chaos emeralds, and my first time with the franchise was Sonic Advance 2 on an emulator during my senior year…
