Horizon Zero Dawn Video Review

This game is an absolute masterpiece, and should be played by everyone. Anyone who enjoys Naughty Dog games like Uncharted or Last of Us should go out and immediately pick this game up. It’s heartbreaking story and imaginative setting will sit with you long after you pry the controller from your hands. The gameplay is fast, complex and accessible enough for anyone to pick up … Continue reading Horizon Zero Dawn Video Review

The Witcher III Wild Hunt Video Review

I was not impressed by The Witcher 3, and it really only feels like a slightly better than average RPG. There’s some great potential here, but it feels like the designers wanted to impress us more in the first few hours as opposed to delivering a coherent and engaging experience throughout. The narrative starts to fall apart, and the burst of excitement you get in … Continue reading The Witcher III Wild Hunt Video Review

Shadowrun Hong Kong Video Review

Shadowrun: Hong Kong is well worth putting up with the hard edges of an otherwise fine diamond of a game. It’s D&D inspired world is not only rich with lore and themes, but its fantastic characters and engaging plot makes this a solid 20 hour experience. If you’re not into reading a novel’s worth of dialogue and emails, there are more action-based experiences out there, … Continue reading Shadowrun Hong Kong Video Review

Final Fantasy XV Video Review

Simply put, Final Fantasy XV doesn’t feel originally inspired, and after ten years of development I expect more than a regrouping of ideas from other successful games. While it’s simplistic and fun battle system has me excited for Kingdom Hearts 3 and the Final Fantasy 7 remake, it’s overly simplistic and uninspired approach leaves nothing to strategize or contemplate. It feels like a stepping stone … Continue reading Final Fantasy XV Video Review

The Technomancer Shows Off New E3 Trailer

Who wouldn’t want to throw out some electrifying bolts of justice into some ruthless and unscrupulous interplanetary jerks? We’ve all been there; am I right? That’s why I was asked to leave Cape Canaveral; all I tried to do was sneak my way onto the space station. Although I’ll probably never get to explore the vastness of space, at least I can do it in … Continue reading The Technomancer Shows Off New E3 Trailer

CrossCode Getting A Huge Content Update

In case you couldn’t tell- I’m a huge fan of classic RPGs. I’m a little partial to Turn-Based, but I enjoy a good action entry as well. Given that most choices stem down to third-person button mashers or western sandbox, I’m always interested when I see a studio shaking things up. Taking familiar gameplay and structure, but bending it just enough to make something new … Continue reading CrossCode Getting A Huge Content Update

Corpse Party Review

 Corpse Party is everything you want in a scary game. It’s mood and tone pull you in and never seem to let you go. The haunting story is one that’s guaranteed to make you cringe and explores some heavy themes and horrifying scenarios. While the game does show its age, the developers are like no-armed artists who have painted a fantastically frightening landscape with their … Continue reading Corpse Party Review

Sheltered Video Review

Sheltered takes all the best ideas from previous games, and combines them into a rich and nerve-racking experience that fans of the genre will love. Venturing out into an irradiated wasteland in search of life-saving tools and supplies is without a doubt more rewarding when you plot the course and call the shots. Maintaining the bunker and choosing who you invite in can be terrifying … Continue reading Sheltered Video Review

Trulon: The Shadow Engine Review

While it’s based on a novelized series, Trulon feels like a shell of a narrative experience.  The story in paper thin and the characters aren’t given any real development.  The combat system is inventive and embraces the charm of MTG and other tabletop games, but bogs down the experience with unnecessarily tedious and repetitive animations.  The game was designed for mobile gamers, and the developers … Continue reading Trulon: The Shadow Engine Review

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Video Review

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is an adequate game if you’re already familiar with the series. It does lack the wow factor to bring in any new gamers however.  While the Vita port is visually dynamic and offers an excellent approach to character conversations, it does not have a fundamental grasp on good RPG combat.  I was able to breeze through the game by using auto-battle … Continue reading Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Video Review

Loot Hound Review

Loot Hound is everything that’s wrong with mobile gaming in a PC package, and without the benefit of buying your way past all the grinding.  The gameplay lacks motivation or consequence, and the developers failed to implement any challenge.  While there’s some strategy on what stats to spend your points on, it’s mostly a mindless slog through redundancy.  The levels lack anything memorable, and the … Continue reading Loot Hound Review

Celestial Tear: Demon’s Revenge Review

Celestial Tear: Demon’s Revenge is a fantastic JRPG that’s marred down by technical problems.  Built on the RPG Maker engine, the game has so many limitations, hardly any customization, and crashes too often to ignore.  If you’re willing to wade through it though, and you should, the game offers an engaging and yet familiar storyline, a nice blend of battle systems and some stellar ideas. … Continue reading Celestial Tear: Demon’s Revenge Review
