DOOM Review

I really love DOOM and I really don’t love first-person shooters. There’s something special about this game that sets itself in its own class and doesn’t become muddied or stale. It’s really good at being DOOM and that says a lot when other games try to be everything they can but themselves. I give it my highest recommendation and I’m eager to see what comes next from both DOOM and id Software.

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 Review

I was the wrong guy to play Azure Striker Gunvolt. I bought the game because it came packaged with a demake of the same game, Mighty Gunvolt, that seemed like developer Inti Creates returning to its Mega Man roots and creating something in the style of the old NES action games they had come to…

Mafia 3 Review

Welcome to 1968 America, a period of time where the grass wasn’t so green. The nation was in the middle of The Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Movement was well underway. What is more interesting about the latter is the southern states felt more of this impact than the rest of the nation. It only makes sense to make a game in this type of atmosphere and that is exactly what 2K Games and Hanger 13 did with Mafia 3.

Batman: The Telltale Series Episode One and Two Review

Batman needs no introduction at this point of the character’s comic career. He can be found everywhere from comics to movies. The character has had his ups and downs throughout different medium attempts (Batman and Robin I’m looking at you!), but overall he is one of the most successful if not THE most successful comic book character ever. More recently, the character has found some video game success with the immensely popular and critically acclaimed Arkham series with all but Arkham Origins being made by Rocksteady games. Now, Telltale is taking a crack with the character in their adventure style gameplay. This is something we’ve grown accustomed to with games like The Walking Dead: Season One and The Wolf Among Us.

Slain: Back from Hell Review

Pretend for a moment that Beavis and Butt-head learned to program and design sprites. The game they would set out to make is Slain: Back from Hell. Dripping with all that is metal and rad, Slain pulsates with eye-catching art that takes a classic aesthetic and breathes new life into it. Thematically, Slain is a Slayer song played out as a side-scrolling puzzle platformer. I say that Beavis and Butt-head would “set out” to make this game because I don’t think they would make this game. Knowing their short temperament and single-noted responses, I think Beavis and Butt-head would say that Slain: Back from Hell “sucks.”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 Review

Waiting. A status I endured in 2012 as I waited for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD to release. When it finally came to PS3, I felt disappointed. It was like going back to your favorite restaurant only to find that the chefs had all quit and the dishwashers were given the task of cooking. The…

NHL 16 Review

This is the month of the year where America’s past time transitions into Canada’s past time. Hockey is starting back up and with that comes another addition of the NHL game series from EA Sports. As a huge fan of the NHL and of the game I’m happy to say there are huge improvements from…
