Review – Hyrule Warriors

October 22nd, 2014 by

WiiU_HyruleWarriors_illu02_E3_logoEveryone loves a good Zelda game.  You’d be hard pressed to find any gamer who says that didn’t enjoy Ocarina of Time, even if they will grumble about the Water Temple until the end of time.  The lovable characters and the classic “good vs evil” story lines have kept gamers coming back for more with each new entrant in the series.  The most recent addition to the franchise is Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U, and while the look and feel of the game is different than Zelda games past, some might say that change isn’t always necessarily good.

Review – DRIVECLUB

October 17th, 2014 by

PrintDriveclub is a game that feels as if it’s constantly at odds with itself. It’s certainly an unfortunate conundrum for a racing game that showed such potential in its earliest stages. The game lacks a true defining characteristic, making it a solid but underdeveloped final product. Evolution Studios debuted this PS4 exclusive during the February 2013 PS4 reveal event, touting it as “the most realistic looking racer ever”. In fact, it was the very first game shown during that press conference and it was promised as a free Day 1 launch exclusive for PlayStation Plus members. Since that time, the game has had several delays and is now no longer a free game. Despite all of the negative sentiment towards it, I was eager to play Driveclub when it finally launched. That eagerness would prove to be somewhat overblown. (more…)

Review – Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

October 9th, 2014 by

shadow-of-mordor-thumbMiddle-earth: Shadow of Mordor introduces the world to a truly engaging version of big budget open-world game design. Remarkably, the game does not do this with better visuals or higher productions values. Nor does it accomplish this with a higher level of online integration within the campaign. Shadow of Mordor is a massive open-world adventure that contains exceptional combat and face-paced traversal through its environments. While this game has been heavily compared to both the Assassins Creed and Batman: Arkham series, in reality it is something much greater than the sum of those two parts. Shadow of Mordor has changed the way enemies and narrative should be utilized in action games. It has also created the first ever open world that feels as if it constantly shifts and evolves with or without input from the player. Shadow of Mordor is revolutionary. (more…)

Review – Super Smash Bros for 3DS

October 3rd, 2014 by

N3DS_SuperSmashBros_illustration02Believe it or not, I am a complete novice when it comes to Super Smash Bros.  At no time in my gaming history have I owned a Smash Bros game for any of my Nintendo devices.  That isn’t to say that I’ve never rumbled with the band of Nintendo-brand misfits, but when I would play, I wouldn’t be so much competing, as much as I was target practice for my friends.  Despite constantly losing, I always enjoyed getting the opportunity to throw down in the colourful arenas with the group.  So, when it came time to review Super Smash Bros for 3DS, I thought this might be an interesting experience, approaching a widely familiar franchise from a fresh perspective.  I’m not going to claim to be any good at the game yet, but it’s certainly been an entertaining journey.

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 – inFAMOUS: First Light

September 2nd, 2014 by

FirstLight_Logo_1402372462Infamous: First Light is a stand-alone expansion that has an intriguing mix of ingredients in its brew. It is a continuation and prequel to the action-packed story told during Infamous: Second Son. This expansion adds some well deserved context and back story to the character, Fetch. In case you’ve forgotten, Fetch is the neon infused speedster that Delsin originally obtained his neon powers from. Fans of the series really seemed to take to Fetch, so it’s quite nice to be able to play as her now. During the 3-4 hours you spend on the main campaign, you will learn many secrets from her past. Fun is the keyword when it comes to First Light, as I had a blast revisiting the world of Infamous, even if it did leave me wanting more. (more…)

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.

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…)
