Forza Horizon 2 vs Driveclub

On December 17, 2014, Posted by , In Editorial,Impressions, With No Comments

I’ve put many hours into both games. I’ve gone a few years not being interested in racing games – Need For Speed games too arcade-y, and after four Forzas, I was done. I had played the demo of Forza Horizon 2 and enjoyed it, but not enough to buy. Then…

December 2014’s Playlist – What I’ve Been Playing

On December 15, 2014, Posted by , In Editorial,Impressions, With No Comments

Halo: MCC is obviously not on this list. It still doesn’t work. But, with news of 343 continuing to fix the game, they delayed Spartan Strike, the sequel to Spartan Assault – the top-down, twin-stick Halo shooter. Because MCC does not work, news of the new game made me want…

I am Shocked at How Good #DRIVECLUB is

I don’t think I’ve truly had fun with a racing game since PGR3. Not sure why I skipped out on 4, but then Burnout was all the rage until Paradise. On the non-arcadey side of things, I had played the majority of the first two Forzas and a little of…

Biggest Disappointments of 2014

On December 8, 2014, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

This might be obvious as it is sorta widely accepted and I’ve mentioned it before, but the biggest disappointments of 2014 are hands-down Titanfall and Destiny. Years in development, they were created during a time when online-only FPSs were a vision of the future. Once they came to release, the…

Bayonetta is Magical

On December 4, 2014, Posted by , In Reviews, With No Comments

I bought Bayonetta when it was originally released on the 360, but didn’t get much into. I dug the combat system, but didn’t get the rest of it. Though, the Bayonetta 2 demo on the Wii U blew me away. And it includes the first game! Ok, I’ll take my…

It has been a year since the new console generation really started. Even though the Wii has been out since 2012, same applies to it. Let’s see where things went. PlayStation 4 The PS4 came out swinging. Tons of cool games, workable OS, and much value. This much we knew,…

Sunset Overdrive Review

On November 14, 2014, Posted by , In Reviews, With No Comments

Everything that went wrong with Fuse, Insomniac did right with Sunset Overdrive. Sunset is the answer to Fuse. Both games even revolve around an orange substance. While the original Fuse concept was promising, it failed to deliver, but we can see all that cut creativity flowing into Sunset. Not only…

Video Game Publishers are Screwing Up Way Too Much Right Now

Not that it hasn’t before, but right now the industry is seeing a lot of anti-consumer issues. I say anti-consumer because at the end of the day you literally can’t play some video games. The whole point of acquiring said media. Let’s begin. Ubisoft Being Ubisoft They’ve been getting away…

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Review

On November 6, 2014, Posted by , In Reviews, With 1 Comment

Titanfall pretty much failed me when it came to bringing something new to the fast-paced, progression-based, online competitive FPS genre. It felt just like Call of Duty with mechs as killstreak rewards. You know what doesn’t feel like Call of Duty? Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Sure, you will still…

Alien: Isolation Review

On October 21, 2014, Posted by , In Reviews, With No Comments

Every time I write about an Alien game, I start with “as an Alien fanatic…”. So, to get it out of the way, I am an Alien fanatic. I hated/loved the 30 hours I put into Colonial Marines. Why, Gearbox? Why? But Sega had to make good on what Gearbox…
