The Legend of Korra: The Video Game Review

The-Legend-of-Korra-post-3_zpsea4250de

The animated Avatar franchise has had a bad history with video game adaptations. Past games that focused on the series have all been shallow beat-‘em ups with little enjoyment other than fan service. The Legend of Korra hopes to right the wrongs of past games in the franchise by being an action packed 3D brawler that can appeal to anyone. more

The Lego Movie Game Review

Lego movie

Words by Milo Fisher

After the recent release of the fantastic Lego Movie, expectations for the movie based tie-in game were high. So far all Lego games had been tied to another franchise, so having the game be set in a world that was made to already be Lego was a scary thought. Would the game be able to deliver the same amount of entertainment and comedy as the film while also providing hours of addictive gameplay? Well… Read more

I got the chance to visit Namco Bandai recently to get our hands on Dark Souls II. And after playing the first three hours, I can safely say that it’s just as punishing and rewarding as it’s predecessor, and I rather loved it. Read more

Here’s Something Awesome: Broken Age

Words By Milo Fisher

Point-and-click games were massive in the past, with such classics as Monkey Island and Grim Fandango being highlights to the genre (for me anyway). Sadly the genre has seemed to have died out in recent years in favor of more action packed titles. Fear not, for now things have changed! Tim Shaffer, the head of Double Fine studios and one of the minds behind both Monkey Island and Grim Fandango, has finally released the Kickstarter funded Point-and-click beauty that is Broken Age.

Rouge-likes are all the rage these days, with more and more being released every week it’s becoming harder to find the ones that do something different and take risks. Enter Dungeon of the Endless, an up and coming randomly generated dungeon crawler that makes opening every door a battle of life and death, and it’s rather cracking. Read more

Here’s Something Awesome: The Banner Saga

The-Banner-Saga-08

Gamers love to imagine what would happen if multiple games were combined together, to picture a game that takes all the best elements of games they love and mix them to create something incredible. Sadly, most gamers are left to dream for a game that captures what features they desire, but not for me, as The Banner Saga manages to capture everything I love in a masterfully crafted adventure.

Saints Row IV review – Hail to the Chief

Saints-Row-iv

Trying to describe Saints Row 4 is like trying to describe insanity itself, because for all intents and purposes, that’s what it is. Imagine a world where anything you want to do is possible, and anything you don’t want to do is also possible. Now take that world, toss it in a blender, add some bananas (K?), a few slices of chaos, and a dash of nud-oops, all of the nudity-, sit back and hit frappé. Once this glorious concoction of gleeful violence, murder, and mayhem settles, toss in some elements of The Matrix, any superhero comic/movie, Crackdown, and Prototype, and you’ve got yourself the newest Saints Row game.

‘DARK’ 2 hours in review. Pro-tip: Don’t buy.

img_8425_dark-video-game-trailer-gdc-2013

Can’t do it. I cannot complete this game. If there was a way to remove the 2 hours I spent with this game from my head, I would do it in a heartbeat. The voice acting is unbelievably bad with zero emotion. If you woke up as a vampire, wouldn’t you be freaking out a bit? Not Eric Bane. One of the most flat and shallow characters in this generation of gaming, it’s almost cringe worthy to know there will be some sort on monotone narration from him about everything. And I mean everything. “The throbbing in my head is pounding in my temples.” Wow, look at that thrilling dialogue. Read more

Remember Me review

Remember me title

If there is one thing that affects us most as human beings, it is our memories. We reflect on the good ones when we are down, and we rely on the bad ones to teach us how to not make the same mistakes as the past. I’m sure though, that every single person out there has a day in their past where they wish they could remember it differently, or just escape the pain of a memory so traumatic it can shut you down. That is the premise of Remember Me. Read more

Metro: Last Light review

MetroLastLight

When the echoes of the past have you in their grip, clawing your way out seems to be the only option. Shadows that are illuminated by lighting bolts don’t just seem to move, they do move. Ghostly images of past lives litter the world and you sense, if not outright feel, their chilled hands clinging to you in search of warmth. These are just a few of the haunting examples you will stumble across in Metro: Last Light. Even though it’s a direct sequel of Metro 2033, Last Light stands as it’s own game. Read more
