“Transformers: Devastation” Review

“Transformers: Devastation” Review

  If you were a kid growing up in the 80’s then chances are you may have some fond memories of the original Transformers series. I remember running from the bus stop so I could get home in time to fix a snack and sit down for the beginning of the afternoon cartoon hour. That was my time to unwind after school before it got serious again and did homework. Unfortunately, for all of us, games that represented the original G1 Transformers series can […]

“Life is Strange, Episode 5: Polarized” Review

“Life is Strange, Episode 5: Polarized” Review

Life is Strange has come a long way since its first episode.  What started out as sort of a guilty gaming pleasure has ended up becoming a regular point of serious gaming discussion because of its challenges on naive morality combined with its engaging twists and turns.  Unfortunately, it all comes to an end that’ll leave players polarized as to how good the finale actually was.

Checking In with Destiny 2.0  

Checking In with Destiny 2.0

Today, I show off as much of what has changed with Destiny’s big 2.0 update as I can with the release of The Taken King expansion coming next week. Tune in at about the 12:15 mark to see the beginning of the game with Nolan North as the new voice of the Ghost.

“Disney Infinity 3.0” Review

“Disney Infinity 3.0” Review

To no huge surprise, Disney Interactive Studios has had quite a hit on their hands with Disney Infinity p. Disney merchandising has long banked on getting toys in the hands of kids (preferably while wearing Disney clothes in a Disney park after you’ve seen the Disney movie). Star Wars, though? Arguably the king of toys. We’re talking about a property that has seen roughly 22,093,482 variations of Darth Vader figures (you don’t need to fact check me on that, promise) and that […]

[GSE 2015] “The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel” Hands-On

[GSE 2015] “The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel” Hands-On

One of the highlights at the GameStop Expo was a playable English build of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel at the Xseed booth which, to our surprise, didn’t get that much attention.  But once this game comes out, we really wouldn’t be surprised to see it achieve a respectable amount of success in an attempt to stand out among other RPG releases this late into the PS3’s lifespan.

SmashPad Live from GameStop Expo 2015

Tomorrow, retail gaming giant GameStop will be hosting its annual GameStop Expo at The Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas. This year marks the second time they’ve had the Expo in Vegas since 2013, as numbers doubled when they were in the Anaheim Convention Center last year. Though the expo is mostly a chance for the public to try out games and demos they most likely missed out on at E3, considering the fact that we missed E3 this year, we […]

“Madden NFL 16” Review

“Madden NFL 16” Review

With less than two weeks until the 2015-2016 NFL season, gamers who are also football fans are probably midway through their own “Madden season.” The game is already out, so if you’re reading this review, odds are you’re on the fence as to whether you should get the game, as EA Sports releases this popular title every year with minor changes barely worth a mention at the water cooler.

“Lost Dimension” Review

“Lost Dimension” Review

It’s become something of a tradition over the years that, as a PlayStation console’s lifespan winds down, it gets treated to a litany of solid JRPGs. If you’ve so much as recently glanced at the PS3 section at your gaming retailer of choice, you already know that Sony’s third console has arrived at that phase. In light of that fact, NIS’ recent announcement that it is already packing it up and moving all development resources to PS4 was as disappointing […]

“Life is Strange, Episode 4: Dark Room” Review

“Life is Strange, Episode 4: Dark Room” Review

“It’s not all bad news in Arcadia Bay. Or is it…?” This quote summarizes Life is Strange, Episode 4: Dark Room rather well. From its opening scene until the haunting, even borderline traumatic last, Dark Room goes there—you know, there.
