I’ve played a ton of video games in my life, so it can take a lot for a game or mechanic to impress me. The freedom and movement and progression in Crackdown is one of the lucky bunch that has stuck with me since I first played it back in 2007 on the Xbox 360. I loved collecting orbs and seeing the progression along my path of destruction. So, when it was announced that Crackdown 3 would be ...[Read More]
Seven: Days Long Gone was a bit of a surprise to me when I got the chance to see it back at E3.

At the time, we hadn’t seen anything like it in a AAA ¬action title. Upon firs...[Read More]
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.

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]
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]
The announcement of a new console is exciting for two groups: developers and players. The decision to launch a console is an impressive feat. The sheer amount of work is mind-boggling, from marketing, design specifications, and a set price point. Microsoft announced the Xbox One X (Project Scorpio) to fans screaming and clapping. So, why can’t fans throw money and pre-order?
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]
