“The Alliance Alive” Review

“The Alliance Alive” Review

Devoid of any real style or substance, The Alliance Alive is only as strong as its battle system. Fortunately, the combat is interesting and fun, if a bit on the easy side.

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 5: Same Stitch” Review

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 5: Same Stitch” Review

As great of a job as Telltale has done with a Batman series, can they just give us a Joker series? Asking for a guy I know. What’s It About? Episode 5, Same Stitch, pays off John Doe as the Joker is one of two ways: Vigilante or Villain. Your choices leading into and starting off this episode produce either version and will play out differently. For my playthrough, I dealt with Villain Joker. The Pact has narrowed itself to […]

“Kingdom Come: Deliverance” Review

“Kingdom Come: Deliverance” Review

So after having played Kingdom Come: Deliverance for several hours, running and horseback riding through 15th century Bohemia, braving the elements and vicious bandits, and occasionally eating an overripe apple, I’ve made a very important discovery: It must have really sucked to be a peasant in the Middle Ages.

“Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Bonus Episode: Farewell” Review

“Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Bonus Episode: Farewell” Review

If you’re a fan of Life is Strange, particularly its excellent prequel mini-series Before the Storm, you undoubtedly picked up the Deluxe Edition of the game for the bonus episode. Whether or not you have the Deluxe Edition, all you should know is that the bonus episode is excellent, and it does more than enough to appeal to any fan of the game, even if you didn’t touch Before the Storm.

“Monster Hunter: World” Review

“Monster Hunter: World” Review

It would be an understatement to say that Capcom’s Monster Hunter series is one with a rabid fanbase. The franchise has enjoyed most of its historical success on handheld systems like the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo 3DS, but because the best games in the series have mostly been on handheld save for some enhanced ports on the Wii and Wii U, it hasn’t exactly taken off in the west until now. Built from the ground up using the raw power of […]

“Super Mario Cereal” Review

“Super Mario Cereal” Review

Yep, Nintendo is back in the cereal business in the most Nintendo way possible, and as far as taste goes, it’s a great breakfast choice… as long as you can find one at retail value.

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 4: What Ails You” Review

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 4: What Ails You” Review

When I left off my last review of Telltale’s ongoing Batman season, I was wanting more. Well, turns out I got a lot more of what I wanted in the latest release: What Ails You. The title is incredibly apt in that it’s a deeper dive into each character’s driving factors. It creates an incredibly engaging story that barely needs Batman in it at all.

Christian’s Top 5 Games of 2017

Wow! What a 2017. Xbox One X confirmed that the future of gaming for Microsoft and Sony is up in the air with nowhere else to go but upgraded graphics and processing. Nintendo Switch arrived and reminded us why Nintendo is Nintendo, innovation for gamers by gamers. On to my top 5!

“Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp” Review

“Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp” Review

It’s time to become an indentured servant to our forest dwelling overlords once again in Nintendo’s latest mobile release, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Grab your fishing gear and bug net because these beastly taskmasters are never satisfied! Okay, maybe they are satisfied, but never for more than 2 hours and 59 minutes.

“Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds” Review

“Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds” Review

Horizon: Zero Dawn was easily one of the best games 2017 had to offer, so getting the chance to dive back into the world is inherently exciting and daunting. Could an expansion live up to the quality of the rest of the game? In the case of The Frozen Wilds, absolutely.

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 3: Fractured Mask” Review

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 3: Fractured Mask” Review

Over the last couple of weeks, there were two notable releases featuring Batman. One is a dumbed down mess that shows Batman getting beat to hell, getting almost all of his toys broken, and making him be a foolish jerk. The other tells a cohesive and engaging story. Let’s talk about the latter! Telltale Games’ Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 3: Fractured Mask.
