E3 2017 Hands-On: Super Mario Odyssey

Having completed E3 2017, I thought it wise to reflect and think back on all the incredible games and experiences I’ve had in the past week. One of the topics I was most excited to ponder was what would be my Game of the Show 2017. I anticipated struggling and going back and forth with certain titles, but when it came down to it, my answer was already firmly decided. Super Mario Odyssey is, ...[Read More]

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]

Wildfire Preview – Burning my Fingers

Stealth games have come a long in way in the last thirty years. From single maps to huge open world settings. Originality is key to new entries into the genre and that is where Wildfire by Sneaky Bastards comes into play.

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]

Hitman and the Future of IO Interactive

After several months of wondering what exactly will happen to the iconic assassin, IO Interactive have just recently concluded negotiations with Square Enix. While many assumed Hitman would stay with Square Enix, myself included, IO Interactive are officially the full owners of the rights to the Hitman franchise. From this moment forward, IO Interactive is an independent studio.

Why I’m Excited For Metroid: Samus Returns

I’m going to start out and say it, I’ve never been a fan of the Metroid series.  The games are long and confusing to navigate, and did I mention, hard? Yeah, not a huge fan of playing Metroid games, and Metroid: Samus Returns may change my mind.

E3 2017: Vampyr Preview – Darkness Seeped with Consequences

A couple weeks ago we got a stylish and cinematic trailer for an upcoming game titled Vampyr (not sure if it is pronounced normally or “vamp-eer”). Life is Strange developer Dontnod Entertainment looks to once again make vampires cool with this new action RPG taking place in 1918 London during the Spanish Flu epidemic. After a good half hour demo presented to us at E3 this week, Vampyr looks to ad...[Read More]

E3 2017 Hands-On: Call of Duty WWII

As I sat down to play a multiplayer match in the newest Call of Duty entry by Sledgehammer Games, Call of Duty WWII, I was filled with hope. I had been wanting this franchise to head back to the WWII era for quite some time now, and first impressions did not disappoint.

Devolver Digital Parodies E3 Conferences

The Electronic Entertainment Expo has been a part of my life since I was in my teens, spending hours of my summer watching the action on Tech TV/G4. It has always been an event where I gather up my friends and we just absorb everything the industry has to offer. Over the years though, especially with me now being able to examine the game industry with more accuracy, I’ve noticed a shift away...[Read More]

Licensed Games are Getting Better

Throughout my early gaming days, anything made from a movie, comic book, or otherwise popular franchise outside of gaming was usually a recipe for disaster. However, there has been a recent upswing in quality with titles made with intellectual licenses. Sure, its still not perfect, but licensed games are getting better.

Disney Supposedly had Artists make Capcom Roster Ugly

There has been a few complaints flying around the internet about the weird looking character models in Marvel VS Capcom Infinite, a sequel to a game with extremely stylish presentation. Originally, I was under the impression these characters would look better in motion. However, a recent post from a supposed ex-employee of Capcom says otherwise on Reddit. Now, before I dive any more into this subj...[Read More]

E3 2017: Detroit: Become Human Hands-On

Quantic Dream has a special place in my heart. Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls were experiences that I still think about to this day. The amount of control and choice felt real and the consequences even more so. That’s why when Detroit: Become Human was announced, it quickly rose near the top of my most anticipated games. At E3 2017, I was finally able to try the game for myself and see if it wou...[Read More]
