Review – Destiny

September 24th, 2014 by

Destiny_logoBecome Legend. That is what Bungie did when creating the epic Halo series, and now they challenge themselves and us to do the same in their brand new highly anticipated game, Destiny.  Bungie has set the bar high, not only settling to create just another first person shooter, but to create a gaming experience which will last the next ten years. To accomplish this feat they are attempting to create a hybrid of the successful MMO formula and the graphics and gameplay they are renown for. (more…)

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 – 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.

Interview with Brett Lawrie of the Toronto Blue Jays

April 24th, 2014 by

lawrie_logoMLB 14: The Show recently launched for the PlayStation 3 and the Vita, while its PS4 counterpart hits store shelves on May 6th.  For the past couple years, the Canadian releases of the series’ games have featured a player from Canada’s only MLB team, the Toronto Blue Jays.  Right fielder, Jose Bautista, has graced the cover for both years since the separate covers were introduced, but this year the franchise decided to switch it up and showcase the enthusiastic third baseman, Brett Lawrie.  I had a chance to sit down with Brett and ask him a few questions about being featured on the cover of The Show, and about his time with the Blue Jays.

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 – South Park: The Stick Of Truth

March 4th, 2014 by

south_park_thumbEver since day one of its announcement, I have been excited for South Park: The Stick of Truth. However, it’s been a bit of an emotional roller coaster ride ever since.  The original publisher, THQ, was met with unfortunate circumstances and had to file for bankruptcy, leaving the fate of the cartoon RPG in limbo.  Luckily for South Park fans everywhere, Ubisoft saw promise in the game, and decided to take on the project.  After months of public uncertainty as to the release date, it was finally announced that the title would launch for the 2013 holiday season!  I even got to preview some of the gameplay footage at FanExpo in August, which made me even more anxious for the game.  Disappointment struck again when a trailer was released stating the title’s launch would now be delayed until March 2014.  Despite several setbacks, I hadn’t lost faith that a stellar product would be the end result, and all I can say is, it was definitely worth the wait.

Review – The Last of Us: Left Behind

February 18th, 2014 by

the-last-of-us-left-behind-dlc-logoNaughty Dog released the first single-player DLC for The Last of Us on February 14, and I had been looking forward to it since its announcement. I hadn’t played the game in a while, and when I put the disk in, it informed me update 1.06 was required, but at only 131MB I wasn’t vexed. Then when I heard that forlorn start screen music, all those memories from the game came flooding back. And it’s a very good thing I enjoyed listening to that start screen music because the DLC is 5321MB. I had time to relive almost the whole game while waiting for download and installation. (more…)

Review – Tearaway

February 7th, 2014 by

PSVita_Tearaway_Packfront_iota_1382972041Tearaway is the latest Vita offering from the creators of LittleBigPlanet, Media Molecule.  This game is a brilliant example of how to fully utilize the available functionality of the handheld system, and use them in interesting and innovative ways.  Tearaway is an adventure puzzle game where you must navigate the main character through colourful settings filled with obstacles and pesky, yet adorable, baddies.  The gameplay itself is simple, but challenges can be…well…challenging.  Add in the ridiculous premises and dialogue that you’ll encounter along your travels and you’re in for a sure-fire good time.
