Throwback Review: Mirror's Edge - Bottomless Pit
We all know that EA is... subversive, when it comes to evolution.

 

A publisher known for being seemingly suicidal when it comes to new IPs, and dedicated to
Fortnite Season 5 Week 9 Challenges Guide

Shape of The World Review - Epiphany Fields
Hello. How are you? Your err... hands smell nice?

 

Excuse the formalities, but I feel like maybe I've been a bit too much of a Negative Nancy lately. Here I am,
Don't Sink Review - Sea of Poop Thieves
Ahoy there, mati-- Ahh, what's the bloody point?

 

I'm not going to lie, Sea of Thieves drained my enthusiasm for pirates. If Rare's maligned baby was actually what pirates

Xbox Game Pass: September's New Games Revealed
Xbox Game Pass is about to add a heap of new games to the service. The September additions to the Netflix-style service have been unveiled; there are some big triple-A releases

The Invisible Hours…

1060
I feel like I’m at a disadvantage here.   A review of a VR title on the Xbox One. That’s like reviewing a MS-DOS version of Mega Man, but who says that they can’t flourish on a console that doesn’t yet have a VR component? Even if the experience…

Shadow of the…

565
Shadow of the Tomb Raider was officially revealed to the world this morning with a grim trailer showing off the next adventure of much beloved Lara Croft.  Shadow of the Tomb Raider is described as Lara’s “defining adventure”, and will be the final entry in the 2013 reboot trilogy.     Set…

Robocraft Infinity Review…

982
Goodness gracious with a side order of Miso soup, Hawken was such a boring game.   The Call of Duty of vehicular combat titles, I think hypnosis has a harder time keeping me awake than the greyish-brown onslaught that was Hawken. Kudos must be given to the man who makes riding around in a mech…

How Microsoft Can…

E3 discussions are a dime a dozen and for good reason. There are multiple reasons to discuss the gaming industry’s biggest trade show of the year. It’s the midway point of the year and the perfect moment for companies to set up their holiday season and beyond. Traditionally, publishers…

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice…

1196
Alright, the question of how to approach this game lingers in the air.   A super serious game, tackling super serious themes, with a super serious goal behind it. Ninja Theory really has made looking at this game with anything other than a straight-faced eagle eye, difficult to do.…

Square-Enix Job Listings…

742
Square Enix’s anticipated, yet unknown, Avengers game may be different than some might hope. According to the developer Crystal Dynamics’s job listing, they are looking for an external lead designer who understands “the social implications of shared gameplay.” While the listing does not directly say it’s for a Marvel…

Indie Investigation: The…

589
I wasn’t looking forward to April.   I thought it was going to be a dull month, with absolutely nothing worthwhile to look forward to unless you like the typical Sony Third-Person Exclusive. If you weren’t a fan of The Last of Us having a woman to look after,…

Adventure Pals Review…

664
Remember when you used to watch Adventure Time non-stop? Yeahhhh, you do, don’t lie.   One of the new-age vehicles of saccharine and random stupidity, accessible to all types of people. I stopped watching back in 2013 and apparently it’s only gotten weirder over time, but that still hasn’t…

Masters of Anima…

690
Right, that’s it, gaming can stop now.   From Tennis For Two on an oscilloscope to Master Chief’s left testicle in shiny 16k, it’s taken us around 40 years to get to this point which Masters of Anima pulls off flawlessly. When the characters room changes, so do the acoustics. Pack it up,…

FarCry 5 Starter…

1450
FarCry is an influential title for first-person shooters,  and while most players are veterans of the series, there’s an entire new influx of players experiencing FarCry 5 with fresh eyes. FarCry is a special kind of FPS, combining precision shooting mechanics and slight RPG-like elements in a vast open-world.…

Subdivision Infinity DX Review – Major Tom

With Space Shooter-type games, you get one of two flavors.   On one hand, you have the super accurate sims. Elite: Dangerous, Everspace, Starpoint Gemini, blah blah blah. The kind of stuff that…
