“Alien Isolation” Review

“Alien Isolation” Review

There are many fears one can experience and being hunted is among one of the most inducing. But to make that even worse? Being violently stalked. By a nearly unkillable alien. Enter Alien Isolation. I was able to get some hands-on time with the game during this year’s San Diego Comic Con and enjoyed what […]

“NBA 2K15″ (PlayStation 4, Xbox One) Review

“NBA 2K15″ (PlayStation 4, Xbox One) Review

The NBA 2K series has been king of the virtual court for more than half a decade now thanks to extremely tight gameplay and presentation values that’ll leave pretty much every other sports game in the dust.  Last year’s next-generation iteration of the game continued to further enhance both those aspects, but it left much […]

“Persona 4 Arena: Ultimax” Review

“Persona 4 Arena: Ultimax” Review

Out of all of the games and spinoffs that comprise the long-running Shin Megami Tensei franchise, none has been so singled out as a strong brand unto itself as has Persona 4. Although remakes of past titles have certainly not been unheard of, the wealth of content that makes up Persona 4 is rather staggering […]

“Defense Grid 2″ Review

“Defense Grid 2″ Review

Expectations are often the worst for a game sequel. When players put a lot of time into something, they tend to develop opinions on what would make things better for the sequel. Defense Grid 2 is in that unenviable situation, where it can’t possibly live up to everyone’s expectations, because everyone’s expectations vary wildly. Still, […]

“Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS” Review

“Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS” Review

While it’s no secret that the Super Smash Bros. series is wildly popular and is generally regarded as a “system seller,” this late into the 3DS’ lifespan it would be hard to point out that people are buying the 3DS just for Super Smash Bros., but for those that did, Super Smash Bros. for the […]

“NHL 15″ Legacy Review

“NHL 15″ Legacy Review

EA Sports NHL is consistently a high point of the EA Sports lineup, and in EA’s annual catalogue as a whole. Every year, Sean Ramjagsingh and his team at EA Sports Canada do a great job of refining an already brilliant simulation of the sport, while adding new bells and whistles to enrich the experience. […]

“Hyrule Warriors” Review

“Hyrule Warriors” Review

Many Nintendo fans believe that The Legend of Zelda is Nintendo’s most prized IP.  Yes, Super Mario and Pokémon definitely have universal recognition, but hardcore gamers the world over would be hard pressed to not at least turn their heads whenever a new Zelda game is unveiled for the first time. Despite this, The Legend of Zelda […]

“Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call” Review

“Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call” Review

The wildly popular Final Fantasy franchise has been in existence for almost 27 years now, and while anybody can say whatever they want regarding the quality of the many games bearing the name, its music has always been widely appreciated. The franchise celebrated its 25th anniversary a couple years ago with the release of Theatrhythm: […]

“Destiny” Review

“Destiny” Review

When many think of Bungie, they’ll immediately think of Halo. That’s incredibly justifiable, as they made quite a name for themselves with the popular series. But once they gained independence and later synced with Activision, Bungie began working on what they’re touting to be a new epic: Destiny. But games are almost always meant to […]

“The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky” Review

“The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky” Review

When The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky landed on the PSP in North America, it was effectively a second chance at a first impression. After all, Nihon Falcom’s long-running RPG franchise lost a considerable amount of goodwill right out of the gate on this side of the Pacific with a trio of horribly-translated […]

“NHL 15″ Next-Gen Review

“NHL 15″ Next-Gen Review

When Sean Ramjagsingh and his EA Sports NHL team sat out the next-gen rush last year, the assumption was that their Ignite-engine adaptation of the franchise was well underway, but needed another year in development before it had the polish and depth to be deemed ready for public consumption. After all, “Rammer” and his studio […]

“Madden NFL 15″ Review

“Madden NFL 15″ Review

Whether it’s because of the brand or its stranglehold on the NFL licenses, EA Sports’ Madden NFL franchise sells extremely well year after year.  This year, however, aside from this outrageous commercial, EA Sports didn’t hype it much—which is strange, because this is a pretty damn good season of Madden. What Is It? Madden NFL […]
