“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 […]

“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? Guardian of Gotham picks up very shortly after the raucous ending events of the last episode. Lady Arkham’s true identity has been revealed and Bruce may have publicly attacked the Penguin […]

“Ginger: Beyond the Crystal” Review

“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 […]

“Gears of War 4” Review

“Gears of War 4” Review

The Coalition had big shoes to fill. Epic Games redefined the shooter genre and Gears of War was forever cemented as one of the best shooting series of all time. With Microsoft often touting the series next to Halo as the staples of the Xbox exclusive library, a lot of eyes were on The Coalition to deliver a solid addition to a massive fanbase. While the game is still as enjoyable as it was 10 years ago, problems with the […]

“NBA 2K17” Review

“NBA 2K17” Review

It’s no secret that the NBA 2K franchise is the class of basketball games, if not the class of all sports games.  That said, what’s really left to improve upon when you’re the best? Visual Concepts and 2K Sports tackle that question head on, but it essentially still feels like the same great game it’s been for years.

“Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas” Review

“Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas” Review

Originally released on mobile devices, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is a game that looks to have drawn plenty of inspiration from The Legend of Zelda series, and while it may have trouble imitating the popular franchise’s charm, the newly released title on console and PC might be as close as it gets–which is a good try.

“Madden NFL 17” Review

“Madden NFL 17” Review

With just over a week to go until the beginning of the NFL regular season, it is indeed Madden season, and this year’s iteration of the long-running football sim is definitely the best version in over a decade.
