“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. They Shall Not Pass proves […]

[GDC] “Mutant Football League” Hands-On

[GDC] “Mutant Football League” Hands-On

You wouldn’t believe the look on my face as I was casually walking around checking out different things at GDC and came across Mutant Football League.  I had to get my hands on it, and now that I have, I’m more intrigued than ever.

“Final Fantasy XV” Review

“Final Fantasy XV” Review

Final Fantasy is undoubtedly one of the most polarizing franchises in all of gaming.  It’s a series that more often than not pushes host platforms to their limits while setting new trends in the RPG genre.  This is why our resident JRPG fans have been so critical about its release.

“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.

“The Walking Dead – A New Frontier, Episodes 1 & 2: Ties That Bind” Review

“The Walking Dead – A New Frontier, Episodes 1 & 2: Ties That Bind” Review

While many regard Telltale as perhaps the best developer and publisher of narrative-driven games that push the “choose your own adventure” model, it’s no secret that their handling of Skybound’s graphic novel, The Walking Dead, is what really drove them to this well regarded prominence. The series introduced us to Clementine, a little girl who stayed home alone when The Walking Dead‘s apocalypse unfolded, and over two seasons (ten episodes) we watched her grow from a helpless little girl to […]

“The Witness” Review

“The Witness” Review

The Witness is challenging, satisfying, and captivating on a level beyond most of its peers. It leaves an impression that won’t soon go away.

“Titanfall 2” Review

“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

“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

“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.

“Battlefield 1” Review

“Battlefield 1” Review

The Battlefield series has always been about about massive warfare. From planes flying overhead, tanks rumbling on the roads and dozens of infantry soldiers fighting inside buildings, there is no greater sense of all-out-war than what DICE managed to create. Turning back the clocks on Battlefield and setting the latest entry during the events of World War I seemed like a risky challenge as it’s a war not many people are well informed about and the series has always been […]
