Treyarch has been quite a power player when it comes to the Call of Duty series, starting with the underappreciated Call of Duty 3 and then moving into World At War almost effortlessly. However, it found its biggest peak with the Black Ops series, starting in the past with a stirring tale and eventually shifting […]
Over the years, Mario Tennis has become just as big an institution as, say, Virtua Tennis, but obviously wrapping more around the Mario legacy instead of traditional rules for the sport. That’s certainly worked in its favor, especially when it comes to multiplayer, as a lot of antics can unfold by standing on the correct […]
A board game done the wrong way just drags a party into the ground. Case in point – stuff like Pac-Man Party, Sonic Shuffle and other games that just lack the inspiration to keep players interested. Sadly, this appears to be the case with Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, a game dependent on scanning items […]
There’s no question that Yuji Naka has done a great deal for this industry, introducing us to such marvels as Sonic the Hedgehog and NiGHTS over the years. But he’s also stumbled a little bit outside the Sega era, and hoped to re-catch some of his footing with his latest project, Rodea the Sky Soldier.
In this review we’ll have two of our writers with hands-on time who both have a review on Rise of the Tomb Raider. Below you’ll see a text review from Robert Workman and a video review from Mike Robles. Hope you enjoy this one-of-a-kind review from two members of our team. – Andrew Peggs (Senior […]
There’s no more anticipated game this holiday season than Fallout 4. Not by me, personally, but look at the hype. A live-action TV ad that’s turning heads. Conversation pieces that aren’t just for hardcore gamers, but general ones that can’t wait to explore the post-apocalyptic Boston landscape. Discussions at GameStop and Best Buy about how […]
Nintendo’s made enough money from Pokémon games that it can afford to try something new – which I why I admire the initiative it’s taken with Level-5’s latest role-playing adventure, Yo-Kai Watch. Like the Pokémon series, it’s easily adaptable to players of all ages, and introduces a sprawling new world worth exploring, with quirky human […]
The Need For Speed series started on such basic principles when it was released on the 3DO – race and win – but that didn’t stop EA from fiddling with formula over the years, adding everything from street racing to police pursuit to full-on open-world madness. But it’s with the Underground games that the series […]
Right before THQ bit the big one following a harsh fight with bankruptcy, the company released its finest sequel to date, Darksiders II. Like the original, it featured a superb storyline revolving around morality, with a number of great characters in tow. However, unlike the first, instead of controlling War, you took up the helm […]
Previously released games in the Adventure Time line-up have been, well, less than favorable. I’m still trying to get over the poor Gauntlet knockoff Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know!, and the other games, well, have been pretty down there in terms of quality.
With Ash vs. Evil Dead just days away from release, the talk behind the Evil Dead trilogy has begun picking up again. Not that it was dead to begin with, as watching Bruce Campbell let loose with a chainsaw never gets old. The original film created an unsettling but satisfying take on horror, while Evil […]
343 Industries has taken a lot of flack over the years. I mean, the team practically took over where Bungie left off with Halo, working alongside Microsoft to give the popular sci-fi series a new direction. And I’d like to think that it succeeded, despite a few hiccups.
