  • The Wolf Among Us: Episode 3 - 'A Crooked Mile' Review

    While Telltale's latest adaptation of Fables doesn't hit the lofty benchmark set in recent months by The Walking Dead: Season 2, Sheriff Bigby Wolf's search for answers to increasingly close-to-home murders is engaging and well-paced. Everything in The Wolf Among Us feels purposeful, with explanatio...

  • Mercenary Kings PS4 review

    Starting off life as a Kickstarter title from developer Tribute Games, known for its downloadable beat 'em up Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Mercenary Kings brings a fun side-scrolling shoot 'em up with plenty of missions and great co-op action to the PlayStation 4. The storyline doesn't take itself...

  • Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition PS3 review

    Originally released in October 2013 for the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate accompanied Batman: Arkham Origins, a prequel to Rocksteady's stellar Arkham Asylum and Arkham City titles.  Seven months later Armature Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive have r...

  • Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut Review - great mechanics that lack variety

    The list of genre types to grace the PlayStation 4 is narrowing each week, and Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut fills in the blank for outer space fighters. What it provides is a hearty template for something great, and the concept itself is even entertaining to undertake. Is the ability to fl...

  • TowerFall Ascension PS4 Review

    The PlayStation 4 has become a gateway into the console market for indies all around the world. These small development studios create games with budgets that could be considered laughable by any of the big AAA studios in the game industry. Despite the smaller budget, some of these companies have go...

  • Luftrausers Review

    At at time where high octane, flight action simulators such as Ace Combat and H.A.W.X. are the heavy hitters that you will see on store shelves, along comes a little gem called Luftrausers. As an individual who spent countless childhood hours playing the classic 2D top-down flight game 1942, the pre...

  • Ragnarok Odyssey ACE Review: much more of the same

    DISCLAIMER: This review covers both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of the game. Two years ago, Game Arts debuted its high-octane action-RPG, Ragnarok Odyssey, a quasi-successor to the decade old MMORPG, Ragnarok Online. In the hopes of mending the absence of a proven Monster Hunter...

  • MLB 14 The Show PS3 Review - realistic baseball gets even better

    Each year, San Diego Studios releases another outing of MLB The Show, and each year yields yet another step toward a perfection that the previous version was believed to have achieved. From inception, MLB 14 The Show was destined to reach the same deified heights, even with the lack of competition i...

  • MLB 14 The Show PS Vita Review : a shadow of its console self

    Making the series' third appearance on Sony’s handheld, MLB 14 The Show had an opportunity to be the ultimate baseball simulator on the go. The benefits of a portable version of any game are often outweighed by the limited hardware, but San Diego Studios has a knack for making the best of what...

  • BioShock: Infinite Burial at Sea - Episode Two Review: An emotional sendoff for Irrational's flagship series

    The second and final chapter of BioShock Infinite’s Burial at Sea DLC is a decidedly poignant experience, least of all because it marks the culmination of the intricate, multi-dimensional narrative that begun a year ago with Irrational Games’ acclaimed cerebral FPS. More importantly howe...

  • Fez PS4 Review - ''a dimension-shifting triumph''

    Fez, the acclaimed indie excursion - which formerly premiered on the likes of PC and Xbox 360 – has finally gotten its belated release on Sony systems, and it’s about time, too. At the forefront of the indie platforming resurgence since its protracted development begun way back in 2007, ...

  • The Witch and the Hundred Knight Review: Disgaea-killer this is not

    So, imagine you wake up from a long slumber, stretch your arms and legs, clear your eyes of Mr. Sandman’s sprinkles, and find out you’re a slave. No thoughts, no willpower, just a mindless repeating of combat for a cruel, sadistic overseer. That is exactly the feeling I got from The Witc...

  • Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition Review - the best of an old franchise

    Consistency is hard to keep in the gaming industry, but W-Omega has done the impossible: make the same essential game over and over more than Call of Duty and still retain a major level of success. The one thing that makes my previous statement positive is that unlike Call of Duty, both critics and ...

  • Deception IV: Blood Ties Review

    Deception is a long-running series, starting off on the original PlayStation back in 1996. Though a newcomer to the franchise, and thus unable to compare it to previous titles in the series, sadly this game has left a bad taste in my mouth. Unlike a lot of games, Deception IV: Blood Ties has you ...

  • inFAMOUS: Second Son Review: PS4's first masterpiece

    inFAMOUS 2 was a great game that ended with a big question mark. The bold and rather sudden step of killing a main character left gamers wondering what, if anything, was left for the series. On the eve of PlayStation 4's reveal in February 2013, they got their answer--more inFAMOUS was coming, and f...

  • Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster Review

    Last year, Square Enix dipped its feet into the remastering pool with Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, an excellent technical package of mostly great content that exuded a sense of its creators' love and care. But in my review, I noted that HD 1.5 ReMIX's version of the original Kingdom Hearts didn't fe...

  • Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Review

    Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z has generated a lot of controversy for fans of the series since its unveiling, with Ninja Gaiden purists complaining due to the fact the game deviates considerably from the series template. Despite these changes to the formula however, this spin-off title is well worth your cas...

  • SteamWorld Dig Review: an addictive trip to the bottom of the world

    When I first dove into SteamWorld Dig: A Fistfull of Dirt, I was expecting to play another Minecraft or Spelunker clone. And, although the comparison is easy to make, I'm pleased to report that SteamWorld Dig differentiates itself in the way that I hoped it would. Developed by indie Studio Image ...

  • Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes PS4 Review

    You’ve got to applaud Hideo Kojima. No matter how many times the legendary developer expresses his desire to step away from Metal Gear Solid, he finds himself inexorably drawn back to the stealth-action opus one way or another. His latest venture, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, finds the c...

  • Dark Souls 2 Review - Welcome to hell

    I feel emotionally drained. Dark Souls 2 gave me hope. It beckoned me toward a glorious sunrise and calming waters into a tranquil haven. A quaint wooden shack, a beautiful panoramic view across the mountains and a warm glowing fire reassured me that everything was going to be okay. It took me by th...

  • Basement Crawl PS4 review

    The PlayStation 4 has had great success with Indie titles since its launch back in November of last year. Games like Outlast scared us, Resogun frustrated us in a good way, and Don't Starve asked us how long can we survive. Unfortunately, Basement Crawl, the latest indie title to hit Sony's new home...

  • The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Episode 2, 'A House Divided' Review

    Playing 'A House Divided' reminded me of The Walking Dead: Season 1's best moments. Our first chance to play as Clementine, in January's 'All That Remains,' was emotionally charged and mechanically competent, but a few narrative missteps and shoddy character exposition--alongside the usual Telltale ...

  • Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemist of Dusk Sky PS3 review

    Still no bikini armor, no Barbie doll or Herculean caricatures, and the world is not on the precipice of destruction where only you alone can save all of humanity and the cosmos; welcome back to Tecmo Koei’s Atelier universe in their new instalment, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the ...

  • Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition PS4 review

    Nowadays, zombie-inspired videogames are a dime a dozen – slowly, yet intently creeping onto any gaming system that they wish to infect. Ever since their resurgence into popular culture back in the early-to-mid '00s, we've been treated to sluggish, plodding zombies, bile-bloated ghouls, multi-...

  • South Park: The Stick of Truth Review - a side-splitting RPG with real character

    Thanks to the apropos talent of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, South Park: The Stick Of Truth delivers familiar tongue-in-cheek, satirical humour and crude language that has helped make the animated series such a huge hit. Yet underneath its close-to-the-bone jibes at Jews, anal-pro...
