“Azure Striker Gunvolt” Review

“Azure Striker Gunvolt” Review

What Is It? Azure Striker Gunvolt is a 2D action sidescroller unlike any other. You play as Gunvolt, an assassin imbued with the power of lightning. Although you’re armed with a gun, the bullets alone do very little damage to enemies. The hook of this game is the tagging system. When you shoot an enemy, […]

“Assassin’s Creed: Unity” Review

“Assassin’s Creed: Unity” Review

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is the first game in the series to be specifically made for a next-gen console. After debuting on the Xbox 360 and PS3 nearly seven years ago, the series has become an annual entity. Like any knowledgeable gamer knows, too much influx of any given product can diminish quality and often lead to hazardous […]

“Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor” Review

“Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor” Review

The newest game in the Middle-earth world puts the focus on being a fun game over being a vessel of story and lore and benefits greatly as an awesome game for Lord of the Rings fans and newcomers alike.

Checking In with Driveclub – 12/13/14  

Checking In with Driveclub – 12/13/14

Driveclub was one of a handful of games this fall that had a terrible launch full of issues and two months later, the team at Evolution Studios has finally gotten a handle on the network issues that have plagued that game since launch with the latest round of patches. Challenges have been added back into the […]

“Forza Horizon 2″ Review

“Forza Horizon 2″ Review

When Forza Horizon came out in 2012, it offered a festive, open-world alternative to Forza Motorsport’s brilliant but sometimes dry take on motoring, focusing more on the culture that often surrounds it than just the simple act of racing. While it didn’t offer the same hardcore simulation appeal as its parent series, it certainly made […]

“PlayStation TV” Hardware Review

“PlayStation TV” Hardware Review

Handheld gaming has become a sort of paradise in recent years, with an endless parade of quality JRPGs and other forms of classic gaming, while still carrying the muscle to provide us with servicable ports of the games we play on our consoles. There’s just a single problem: they’re handhelds. Although gaming in general seems […]

“Game of Thrones, Episode 1: Iron from Ice” Review

“Game of Thrones, Episode 1: Iron from Ice” Review

It’s no secret that Game of Thrones is, by far, HBO’s hottest property right now.  Based on the still unfinished novels in the A Song Of Ice And Fire series by George R.R. Martin, each episode in the HBO series seems to steadily raise the stakes and become more captivating than the last.  Telltale has been […]

“Super Smash Bros. for Wii U” Review

“Super Smash Bros. for Wii U” Review

Undoubtedly the most anticipated release in the Wii U’s lifespan, Super Smash Bros. is without question Nintendo’s most touted license to date.  This generation marks the first time a game launched on both Nintendo’s current console and handheld platforms, and as good as Super Smash Bros. for 3DS was, it doesn’t hold a candle to Super […]

“Halo: The Master Chief Collection” Review

“Halo: The Master Chief Collection” Review

It was only a matter of time. When the Xbox One was announced, we all knew a Master Chief led Halo 5 would be on the way. But what we should have really seen coming was a rehashing of the original Halo games. After all, Halo: Combat Evolved got the anniversary treatment on the Xbox […]

“Pokémon OmegaRuby & AlphaSapphire” Review

“Pokémon OmegaRuby & AlphaSapphire” Review

Known to Pokémon diehards as “Generation III,” the Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire were thought of as sort of an underwhelming release, especially considering how great “Generation II” (or Gold, Silver, and Crystal) was. So when the game’s remakes, OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire, were unveiled, I couldn’t help but feel a certain level of disinterest. That being said, I picked […]

Violence, Live on Television: It is Our Right to Purge

Violence, Live on Television: It is Our Right to Purge

Surely by now, you’ve heard of the crisis facing Ferguson, Missouri. Some say this, some say that. It doesn’t really matter at this point. But what does matter is that the cat’s out of the bag; Pandora’s box is now open. The problem isn’t going to go away. Even if the riots subside in the coming […]
