It’s been a crazy year for video games. We’ve seen long dormant franchises make a comeback, highly anticipated games get delayed, DLC flood the marketplace, and a few indie surprises pop out of the woodwork. Yet, at the end of the day, only a handful can be considered for the year’s best. Without further ado, here are my top ten games of 2015, with a few honorable mentions thrown...[Read More]
While we are all patiently waiting for Pokemon Go or a new Pokemon game, GameFreak is doing a nice job of keeping us at bay. First, we had Hoopa, which can still be picked up from McDonald’s until the 23rd. Now, we have the first ever “Steam” pokemon. Volcanion is the new legendary Pokemon that will be coming soon to our games. It is a Fire/Water pokemon, the first in the series...[Read More]
The bread is fully baked and ready to leave the pan – I am Bread is now available for PlayStation 4.

What time is it? ADVENTURE TIME!
MMORPGs are an interesting beast. Its more than a video game genre, It’s more akin to being a completely separate hobby on its own. I have played a ton of MMOs and most of them are bad, but the ones that do a great job it makes me love the genre. WildStar on paper sounds pretty fantastic when it comes to MMOs. Though “on paper” isn’t why we shell out the loot to play these ...[Read More]
1…3…23…56…75…106. My KO count went to 106 in less than 2 minutes in my first battle in Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition. Dynasty Warriors lets the player be an unstoppable force when he or she is on the battlefield. Almost all the attacks in the game are meant for crowd control giving the player a sense of invincibility. The game’s high points definitely come from the game...[Read More]
Well, that may be the most interesting title I’ve seen for a game yet.
And lo, with yet another film of the legendary webslinger, we get another tie-in game. A lot of times, Spidey games, even if they’re flawed, are still fun. Does this one hold up?
When I was a child, I believed in magic. There were dragons that lived in concealed caves beneath the tightly packed soil of my backyard, and an ancient crone enchantress that lived in the house across the street. She was a quiet, reclusive sort of witch and I felt it was my duty to keep any other children in my neighborhood away from her front stoop, lest they be turned into some creepy crawly cr...[Read More]
Since being a new owner of a PS Vita I’m playing catch up on many games, but one game that caught my eye was Ragnarok Odyssey Ace that recently came out. I first got my taste of Ragnarok on PC due to the MMO, but it didn’t really pull me in as much. Why? When playing any MMO I prefer to have one that has some controller support since select games offer it than learn all the commands t...[Read More]
So, a Metroid-style sequel to a prequel that was a handheld but ported to console. Well, let’s see if Batman still has it. (Special note: Having never played the handheld version, this review is entirely based on this console version of the game)
Most people who have ever brought a child into the world would tell you that it is a life changing, magical experience. A lot of people find it to be so transformative of an experience that the very essence of who they are, all the way down to their speech patterns, can change. Phrases that sound like “whats a mattew wid daddy’s widdle man” become just as commonplace as a bottle of pacifier ...[Read More]
