E3 2017: Call of Cthulhu – May Be The Lovecraftian Game Fans Have Always Wanted

I got the opportunity to sit in a live demo of the upcoming Call of Cthulhu from developer Cyanide. Up until now, we had not gotten much information on how the game plays, rather we got some eerie and terrifying trailers showcasing the dark nature of the HP Lovecraft universe. I was initially under the impression that this was going to be just an interactive murder mystery, but luckily, we are get...[Read More]

Hello Neighbor: Don’t Judge A Game By It’s Art Style

Horror is one of my favorite genres. What’s great about horror is how much the genre can be made unconventional by breaking the rules of what horror should be. When I think of a good horror game, I think of games like Outlast, Resident Evil, Silent Hill, etc. Those games are immediately recognized in the genre for their dark tone and aesthetic. Tinybuild’s Hello Neighbor is considered ...[Read More]

Insomniac’s Spider-Man Game Is Exactly What I’m Hoping For

Sony’s press conference has just wrapped up, and we got our first glimpse of Insomniac’s upcoming game adaptation of Marvel’s beloved superhero. Spider-Man has always been my hero since I was a kid.

Wonder Woman Review: DC’s Much Needed Film

Let’s all be happy to know that the DC Extended Universe has finally found its first great film! I was pretty disappointed with it’s first three outings; Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Suicide Squad. That being said, it became a sigh of relief to know that Wonder Woman was the first film in this universe to capture a beloved character’s origins and give us an absolute blast of a superhero mo...[Read More]

Human Fall Flat (PS4) Review – Why Am I Still Playing?

Human Fall Flat is a little indie game that not many know about. Released not too long ago on console by No Brake Games, Human Fall Flat has players taking control of a white faceless human blob named Bob (no seriously, his name is just Bob) who must find his way to the end of each level utilizing the entire environment to make sure that happens. “Simplicity” is the term I’d like to best describe ...[Read More]

Destiny 2 Gameplay Reveal: Bungie Listened To All Of Us

When Destiny was originally released in 2014, I was very much aboard the “Hype Train” as some may call it. I picked it up thinking it would become my new favorite game as it was looking to be a perfect hybrid of the RPG-ness of Borderlands (my favorite franchise) and the cinematic storytelling of Halo. Unfortunately, once the game released, I started to realize just how disappointed I was. Reviews...[Read More]

Destiny 2 Gameplay Promises a Cinematic Sequel

Bungie’s first gameplay trailer at the Destiny 2 Reveal shows just how much they have been listening to the fans. Best part about sequels in video games is just how much feedback developers have to use and how they implement that into future titles.

Super Rude Bear Resurrection Review

I had the pleasure of getting a chance to play Super Rude Bear Resurrection while walking through PAX East’s Indie MegaBooth. It was after this that I decided to keep this game on my radar, because I was so impressed by it’s level design. It was funny to see other players come up and die many times, yet they were so determined to get through it. After finally getting my chance to play the whole ga...[Read More]

New Sweepstakes Announced In Anticipation for Arkane Studios’ Prey

We have a little over two weeks until we can get our hands on Prey. This game has been on my radar ever since it was Bethesda showed it at their Showcase at E3 2016. Having never played the original title, I am very excited to see what all the praise is about. After seeing some gameplay trailers, I’ve come to the conclusion that Prey looks like a wonderful mix between Dishonored and BioShock, and ...[Read More]
