Review – Quest For Infamy

July 29th, 2014 by

QFI-LogoDid you ever play Quest for Glory, Kings Quest, or any of those other Sierra point-and-click adventure games back in the day and wonder why there aren’t more of those types of games anymore? Are you a fan of the kind of low brow, stoner comedies that Seth Rogen or Danny McBride often star in? If you answered yes to these questions, Quest for Infamy may just be the game you’re looking for, if you can get passed the rough edges. Developed by Infamous Quests, whose founders not surprisingly released remakes from the King’s Quest and Space Quest series, bring us this new adventure to PC with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Review – Valiant Hearts: The Great War

July 7th, 2014 by

valiant_hearts_thumbVideogames and war have gone together since the very beginning of the medium, like peanut butter and jelly. We’ve been so obsessed with all types of war; past, present, future, and beyond but the biggest obsession has been World War 2. That’s what makes Valiant Hearts such a welcome breath of fresh air; it is based during the First World War. Equally refreshing is the almost complete lack of any type of gunplay at all. Valiant Hearts is a platformer imbued with a diverse number of puzzles to solve around each corner. It is a stylish and genuine journey more concerned with demonstrating how people are affected by the tragedies of war rather than displaying the violence constantly. (more…)

Review – Watch_Dogs

July 2nd, 2014 by

watch_dogs-thumbWatch_Dogs has had a bit of a roller coaster ride leading up to its eventual launch this past May.  When its first trailer was revealed at E3 in 2012, the reception was incredible for this new IP, and people already couldn’t wait for the game’s November 2013 release.  It was also later revealed that it would be a launch title for both the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One.  Unfortunately, the game was unable to meet that deadline, as Ubisoft deemed the game still needed polishing.  With the finalized release date in question for quite some time, Ubisoft revealed that the game would launch on May 27th, 2014, but gamers were skeptical.  On may 14th, Watch_Dogs had gone gold, and now it was time to see if the public was going to get what they had been so anxiously waiting for.

Sony’s E3 2014 Press Conference – Recap and Thoughts

June 10th, 2014 by

sony-e32014-thumbAfter holding one of the most memorable and talked about press conferences in the history of E3 last year, Sony was certainly facing an uphill battle at E3 2014. As a long time Sony fan, I’m completely used to seeing the company make blunders and unforced errors with their public messaging and product direction. Last year was a complete course correction when Sony made the decision to double-down on their core base, the gamers. How well would Sony handle being back at the top spot of the industry after years of looking up at Microsoft? The lights went down and it was time to find out. (more…)

Review – MLB 14: The Show

June 6th, 2014 by

MLB14_thumbBaseball has always been more than just a sport to me, it’s been an integral part of my life. I measure the passing of each year by the major events that happen during the course of that particular season. Every year of my life is marked directly by whether or not my team won a World Series title. That’s how important the sport is to me and as a direct result that’s how important the MLB The Show series has become to my life as a gamer. Having said that, I am thrilled that MLB 14: The Show delivers a very strong first entry of the series on the PS4. (more…)

Review – Trials Fusion

May 20th, 2014 by

gaming-trials-fusion-logoMotocross games have been popular for as long as I can remember.  Dating back to Excite Bike, then an evolution into Motocross Madness, right up to the present day with the Trials franchise from Red Lynx.  Their latest title in the series goes by the name of Trials Fusion, and if you’ve been a fan of the Trials games so far, then Fusion sure won’t disappoint.  Its simplistic nature and stunning visuals will hook any gamer, new or old, and keep coming back for more, even if the game does like to offer up some frustrating challenges.

Review – Moebius: Empire Rising

May 7th, 2014 by

Moebius_ThumbNailMoebius: Empire Rising feels like an unfinished game.  The premise is good, the main character is interesting enough, albeit a bit unlikable, and the story keeps you interested.  However, so many other components that seem necessary to keep the game enjoyable are in need of some major polishing, or downright reworking.

Review – Child of Light

April 30th, 2014 by

Child_of_Light_artFrom the moment you boot up Child of Light, its distinctive visual and audio style takes the center stage and from that point on, it never leaves the spotlight.  Many games come out that try something different, something unique with their style in order to create an atmosphere that can’t be compared to elsewhere, but most of those that try, fail.  This is unfortunate, not just for those titles, but for the industry in general, as it often holds other teams back from taking that same risk.  Luckily for us the folks over at Ubisoft didn’t let anything stand in their way while developing Child of Light, but instead they let it loose and become something vastly different, which ultimately leads to a very unique roleplaying experience.

Review – Batman: Arkham Origins Cold Cold Heart DLC

April 29th, 2014 by

cold_cold_heart_logoBatman: The Animated Series holds a very special place in my heart – it was my first real introduction to the character during my childhood. From the very first time I saw Batman, Gotham City, and the Batmobile, I knew I was hooked. There were dozens of amazing stories told throughout the course of that series, but one that always stood out to me was Heart of Ice. The story tells the origin of one of the great Batman villains: Mr. Freeze. Without giving any of the story details away, I will say that the Batman: Arkham Origins DLC, titled Cold Cold Heart, does a fantastic job of creating an entertaining and self-contained adventure out of that classic tale from my childhood.
