“Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass” DLC Review

“Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass” DLC Review

They Shall Not Pass is the first expansion for Battlefield 1. Focusing on France’s contributions to the war, players get a brand new look at the French countryside as it gets ravished throughout the expansion’s many new maps and modes. The French lost an estimated 1.4 million soldiers during World War I, and They Shall Not Pass helped showcase the country’s immense sacrifice as well as the brutality that the war had upon their homeland.

“Anima: Gate of Memories” Review

“Anima: Gate of Memories” Review

Anima: Gate of Memories is a semi-open world RPG developed by a very small indie team in Kai Nesbit. It takes you inside the fantasy of bringing a decade-old card game to life. It isn’t perfect, nor is it very impressive either. Did they bite off more than they can chew?

“NieR: Automata” Review

“NieR: Automata” Review

“For Honor” Review

“For Honor” Review

Faction and war-based action games are hardly anything new.  I’d even argue that the majority of them are slow and boring, and others are just plain repetitive.  For Honor is a game that seems to have found the right balance, even though it has its fair share of shortcomings.

“Double Dragon IV” Review

“Double Dragon IV” Review

As I sit here playing Double Dragon IV, I can’t help but look over at the calendar to make sure it is in fact the year 2017. I may be playing this game on the PlayStation 4, but it certainly feels like I could be playing it on my old CRT TV in my bedroom back in 1989.
