Review – Dead Rising 3: The Last Agent DLC

April 16th, 2014 by

last_agent_logoThe final episode of The Untold Stories of Los Perdidos was recently released for the Xbox One exclusive, giving yet another view of the events that unfolded during the breakout.  In The Last Agent, you play as ZDC agent Brad Park, who starts the game injured and stranded in the zombie infested city, and only wants to help survivors.  Sadly for him, he doesn’t realize that the civilians of Los Perdidos have lost all trust in the ZDC for their involvement in the outbreak, leaving Park with very few people he can rely on.  Park must now collect is bearings, find some allies, and make an attempt to get out of the city alive.

Review – Titanfall

April 3rd, 2014 by

titanfall-logoTitanfall, originally announced as a launch title for the Xbox One, was released to so much hype and expectation that nothing less than a…titan…could withstand it.  Luckily Titanfall is packed solid with titans left and right, so there is definitely no shortage in that department.  In fact, Titanfall doesn’t fall short of much in anything it is trying to accomplish.  Respawn Entertainment puts their vast, veteran experience with the Call of Duty franchise to good work in Titanfall, which at times is more obvious than they may have wanted it to be, but it never detracts from a well put together experience from start to finish.

Review – Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

March 20th, 2014 by

Donkey-Kong-Country-Tropical-Freeze-logoIf there’s one thing we’ve learned about Nintendo, it’s that they love their characters.  So much so that you will see them featured in many of their first-party games, often several times.  Well, Donkey Kong is no exception to this rule, where he and his gang of friends are reunited for another installment of Donkey Kong Country.  Usually I’m completely on board for these sequels, as they have a tried and true formula that gamers have come to know and love, and Nintendo’s adaptations on that formula usually cause for an entertaining experience.  Unfortunately for me, I found that Tropical Freeze didn’t exactly live up to that expectation.

Review – Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

March 17th, 2014 by

maxresdefaultIn 2010, I returned to Castlevania, a series of video games I enjoyed from my youth. The legacy and history of the long running series was being updated and brought to the Playstaion 3 and Xbox 360 by game studio Mecurysteam, with input from legendary game designer Hideo Kojima. That game was Castlevania Lords of Shadow, and it was an epic tale that told the origin of the Belmont curse and the birth of the Dragon, Dracula.  Now, four years later, the sequel arrived and I could not wait to sink my teeth into it.

Review – Thief

March 14th, 2014 by

thief-thumbThief had gone through quite the bumpy ride during its development cycle that started several years ago, before hitting store and digital shelves for all to pick up and play.  Originally announced as “Thief 4″ back in 2009, or that awful “Thi4f” title that was shown in some media, and was rumored to be exclusively for last gen consoles (yes, Xbox 360 and PS3 are last gen now in a literal sense).  It wasn’t until early 2013 when Eidos Montreal confirmed that the title had been switched over to be a PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One only game and would no longer be a sequel, but rather a reboot of sorts of the Thief franchise, setting it far in the future from the original trilogy.  This was welcomed news to everyone, as with the modern technology we have today, the sky was the limit for a game like Thief.

Review – Rayman Legends

March 7th, 2014 by

Rayman-Legends-LogoRayman Legends is the 5th and most recent entrant in the Rayman series, and while it had originally launched in September for some platforms, Ubisoft just recently released the game for the Xbox One and the Playstation 4.  While the series has existed for some time, I myself am relatively new to the franchise, so I was going into this experience blind, for the most part.  Right from the get-go, it was clear that I was in for a colourful and wacky time, as everything about the game simply seemed ridiculous – but also looked like a lot of fun.
