Microsoft Allows Future…

Microsoft’s recent studio acquisitions have caused quite a stir within the gaming community. With Obsidian Entertainment and Double Fine Productions among the ever-expanding list of first-party game development studios, gamers fear that their future releases would be exclusive to the Xbox consoles and PC. Surprisingly, Xbox Games Studios (XGS)…

Plenty of exciting games have released or will release this year: Kingdom Hearts 3, Crash Team Racing, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Anodyne 2, Metro Exodus, Catherine, Borderlands 3, Pokemon Sword and Shield, Death Stranding, and of course, Truck Driver.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood Review-…

312
Wolfenstein 3D and DOOM are often considered the granddaddies of the first person shooter genre, and they both spawned consistently successful franchises, both of which are being produced to this day. They have their similarities, but the franchises are separated by differences in aesthetic, gunplay, etc. For me, though, the…

RICO Review –…

Slow motion in video games is no longer the raging force it used to be.   This saddens advocates of the mechanic like myself. It seems like only yesterday that games like F.E.A.R., Max Payne, TimeShift, and Stranglehold had… well, a stranglehold on the market, but alas, it’s another…

Sagebrush Review –…

Now, this was a gamble, I can assure you. It’s nothing to do with the developer, it’s due to the publisher pulling strings behind it. On Xbox One, Ratalaika Games’s name is synonymous with “cheap tat you can 1000g in an hour or two,” which honestly ruins the experience…

Rocket League seems to get better and better with each update and the most recent bit of news that has come out for it doesn’t set it back one bit. Psyonix came out and said that the randomized prizes that came out of their loot box system would no…
