Dear Esther immerses you in a stunningly realised world, a remote and desolate island somewhere in the outer Hebrides. As you step forwards, a voice begins to read fragments of a letter: "Dear Esther..." - and so begins a journey through one of the most original first-person games of recent years.
I’ve been a fan of fighting games since I was a kid. I remember playing as Ryo & Robert in the first Art of Fighting and I played THE HELL out of Fatal Fury on my Super Nintendo. I went back and forth on the King of Fighters series only because I didn’t always have the systems the series appeared on. I was excited that King of Fighters XIV was coming to the PS4 because I couldnR...[Read More]
"THE KING OF FIGHTERS (KOF)" Series has enjoyed huge success across the globe since its birth in 1994. The latest installment and true successor to the main (numbered) series, has finally been revealed!
I played a lot of first person shooters. If there’s a new Call of Duty, I’ll buy it. They’re a guilty pleasure of mine. Why? Because they’re fun. I can zone out. I was excited to see Homefront coming to the Xbox One because I was a fan of the first game. I did know one thing though, it’s a new generation of consoles, so I expected some new things from this new game.
I am real bad at stealth games, but I can’t tell you how many times I died in Dishonored, or fell right into a bunch of guards in Assassin’s Creed. While I’ve played a bit of the older Hitman games from Square Enix I am usually not to subtle with all the killing. Hitman is back for the new generation of consoles and like its predecessors, it is trying something different. Is this good? Well that...[Read More]
I’ve been hearing about The Banner Saga since it’s initial PC release back in 2014. I’m not the biggest PC gamer but I love hearing about all the new games that come out. So when I found out that The Banner Saga was coming to Xbox One and Playstation 4 I was thrilled that I, and other console gamers, would have the chance to finally play it.

I saw The Peanuts Movie in the theater when it released last year and I was very happy with it. It was a great homage to the old cartoons I watched as a child and seemed to really pay tribute to it’s roots all while making the movie feel modern.
Lovely Planet from Quicktequila and Tiny Build Games is strange, wonderful, and one of the best games I’ve played this year. At first glance you won’t know what to expect when Lovely Planet starts. The catchy jazz soundtrack mixed with pastel colors makes you feel like you’ve stumbled into a new first-person view of a Katamari Damacy level. Almost immediately the game turns all your expectations a...[Read More]
Nostalgia can be a funny thing. Sometimes I’ll pop in an old movie to show Tifa and say something like, “I LOVED this movie when I was younger.” I, like many gamers my age, grew up playing the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series. I’ll never forget getting that Pizza Hut demo disc that had the first Tony Hawk game on it. The sounds of early 90s punk blaring through my TV speakers, playing as skate legend T...[Read More]
