“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.

“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. Double Dragon IV is a throwback game, and there is nothing wrong with that.

“Garou: Mark of the Wolves” Review (PC)

“Garou: Mark of the Wolves” Review (PC)

SNK’s recent revitalization has been a very successful one, not just due to the brilliance of their comeback game, The King of Fighters XIV, but in their ability to open their back catalogue to new and old fans alike on modern platforms.

“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.

“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

“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 […]
