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

On November 12, 2014, Posted by , In Editorial, With 1 Comment

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…

NEC XM29 Plus – The Holy Grail of Monitors

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

I first got into the obsessive way to play retro games earlier this year. This required having a professional CRT monitor that would have RGB inputs. Once I learned more about these specific monitors, I decided to hunt for them. I knew I wouldn’t find what I wanted immediatley, that…

Hyrule Warriors Impressions

On October 9, 2014, Posted by , In Impressions, With No Comments

This latest Zelda title really just looks to be a skin on top of the Dynasty Warriors games – a long running series of mindless hack-n-slashes. I’ve played a bit of them to know I don’t care…but did I play enough? After playing Hyrule Warriors, I’m wondering if I’ve been…

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor – A Review of a Different Kind

On October 6, 2014, Posted by , In Reviews, With 3 Comments

I’m going to start my review with… Next to Wolfenstien and Shovel Knight, Shadow of Mordor is probably my favorite game this year. It’s really all about the combat – pretty much a more fleshed-out Batman Arkham-style system along with the free-running of Assassin’s Creed. I’ve put in 27 hours…

Shadow of Mordor is So Good I Can’t Even

On October 2, 2014, Posted by , In Impressions, With 2 Comments

I really don’t care about The Lord of the Rings. Books – never read them (or care to read in general). Movies – fell asleep in the first, walked out of the second. I’m not a fan of high-fantasy. But this game… Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is just FUN. Monolith…

Destiny Review…For Now

On September 22, 2014, Posted by , In Reviews, With 1 Comment

I really don’t know where I am with my feelings toward Destiny. I think I’m far into the story campaign – about 75%. That is, if there is a story. But, I don’t feel I can give an accurate review at this time, even though it is entirely possible that…

Critics Think Microsoft Buying Minecraft is a Bad Idea – It’s actually an Incredible Move

On September 15, 2014, Posted by , In Editorial, With 1 Comment

It’s official, Microsoft has acquired Mojang – the company responsible for Minecraft. So really, Microsoft just bought Minecraft for $2.5 Billion. That’s a lot of money. And as the linked article states: It won’t be hard to find a group of people that’ll say that Minecraft has peaked and Microsoft…
