“Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Review

“Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Review

In life, there are a handful of guarantees: death, taxes, and Star Wars merchandise. I’ll argue that the most latter is definitely a fact because I mean, come on. Force Friday much? And with Star Wars merchandise comes another close guarantee: Legos! Hence, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While Star Wars Battlefront only loosely connected to the latest Star Wars installment, TT Games takes the opportunity to showcase the future of Star Wars by being the first to adapt the story […]

“The Walking Dead – Michonne, Episode 2: Give No Shelter” Review

Now that The Walking Dead has wrapped up its sixth season on television, Telltale Games’ Michonne miniseries can take center stage with its second episode – Give No Shelter.

“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 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.
