“The Disney Afternoon Collection” Hands-On

“The Disney Afternoon Collection” Hands-On

While the gaming options at 2017’s WonderCon were fairly limited, there was one in particular that stood out quite a bit. Was it a Triple-A game? No. Was it some otherwise highly anticipated game? Eh, maybe. Was it the peak Michael Jordan poster, some CDs, bright colors, and slap bracelets surrounding the gaming consoles? Oh yeah it was! Guess what the game is? Disney’s Afternoon Collection, a game surely looking like it’s going to be a video game built off […]

“Titanfall 2” Review

Normally, you can’t go wrong with giant robots fighting each other. They’re giant robots! So when Respawn Entertainment dropped Titanfall on us in 2014, we were pretty impressed. But there was just a little something missing. Well, if you consider a campaign a little something. How have things changed in Titanfall 2? Standby for… well, you know.

“Batman: The Telltale Series, Episode 5 – City of Light” Review

Just in time to wrap up 2016, Telltale has released the finale to their solid Batman series: City of Light. To the Batmobile! What’s It About? City of Light picks up immediately where Guardian of Gotham left off, so it has the benefit of picking up a lot of story steam. Depending on your choices, you’re going to have to go up against Harvey Two-Face for burning down Wayne Manor or the Penguin for having ruined your WayneTech security situation. […]

“Watch Dogs 2” Review

In trying to come up with a blanket statement about how Watch Dogs 2 differentiates itself from 2014’s Watch Dogs, I couldn’t think of anything simpler than this: San Francisco is not Chicago. Facts! Now let’s talk about the games.

“Batman: The Telltale Series, Episode 4 – Guardian of Gotham” Review

After quite the reveal in New World Order, Telltale Games is back with its penultimate effort of its Batman series: Guardian of Gotham. And to help get you back into the swing of things, they’re offering a little something to put a smile on your face. What’s It About?

“Ginger: Beyond the Crystal” Review

Sometimes, a simple game comes along with a positive element to it that makes it purely enjoyable. Other times, your mind just went numb and it’s a struggle to keep going. Unfortunately, Ginger: Beyond the Crystal borders into the latter of those situations. Let’s take a look without the use of ginger jokes! What’s It About? Ginger: Beyond the Crystal follows the titular Ginger on his journey to restore order and happiness (I guess? Everyone seems sad as hell) by […]

“Batman: The Telltale Series, Episode 1 – Realm of Shadows” Review

Over the last several years, the gaming community has been graced with a string of quality Batman games. Whether you were actually a Batman fan or not didn’t matter. There was no denying that the Batman Arkham series was chock full of fantastic games, with perhaps only Arkham Origins being the minimal exception (and even that was a solid game). Well, even though Telltale Games has been making some stellar games through The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, taking […]
