8-Bit Armies is Petroglyph doing Command & Conquer

On April 19, 2016, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

Westwood is back with Command & Conquer, as 8-bit Armies from Petroglyph. And this is why (how) it finally now works: Detailed polygonal RTSs don’t look as clear as they did when they were sprites. Modern graphics become much more detailed and rely on accurate scale. Because of this, it’s…

Dark Souls 3 Impressions

On April 13, 2016, Posted by , In Impressions, With No Comments

I took a day off to play this game. That’s how excited I am about it. But could it possibly live up to my expectations? So far, no. But I still have a lot to do. The world plays more similar to Bloodborne (and looks like it too), which isn’t…

Rise of the Tomb Raider is Amazing, But Falls Short

On April 5, 2016, Posted by , In Reviews, With No Comments

I finally got around to beating Rise of the Tomb Raider. The reason it falls short is the reason why it took so long: I had to take a break. But, let’s get the amazing things out oft he way. The graphics are spectacular. I had a discussion with my…

The Division is Empty Excellence

On March 22, 2016, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

The Division has great 3rd person, tactical, cover-based shooting mechanics. I think the cover and vault buttons need to be swapped, but I also think the sticky cover option is the best. They really messed up on the button-mapping, but whatever – the mechanics are there. The problem is, the…

Cross-Network Play – Will it Happen?

On March 17, 2016, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

While not the first, the Dreamcast really ushered in the idea of online play done easily on console. And it wasn’t to have an online platform of theirs, it was just to have it possible on console. Dreamcast online play could also work with PC players. Yes, that existed back…

The Division, Dragon’s Dogma, Tomb Raider

On February 1, 2016, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

I’ve had Dragon’s Dogma since release, but I’ve been meaning to speak on it. It ran horrible on consoles so I could only bear so much. But, on PC it is magnificent. I’m not an RPG guy and never have been, but this game is just so much fun. I…

I’m finally getting around to this… 2015 is in the past and I’ve played everything I could. Here are my favorite games in no order: Grey Goo – A call back to the days of Command & Conquer. It wasn’t quite there but haven’t played anything like this in a…

Best Games I Played in 2015 That Did Not Come out in 2015

On December 21, 2015, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

Usually the start of any year, through the summer, leaves quite the empty void to dig into one’s backlog. Here are my favorites from this year that are from previous years: Twilight Princess (GCN) – Playing the GameCube version, since it is the superior version, this became my favorite Zelda…

Battlefront vs Black Ops III vs Halo 5

On November 20, 2015, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

It just had to be done. This fall, more than any other fall, there are a number of huge online FPS titles that are being released around the same time. They are out, I’ve played them all – so what’s the final verdict? Battlefront Boy, is this one of the…
