“Star Wars: Battlefront” review

Hearing that John Williams score as you rush into the fray with your friends to destroy an Imperial AT-AT is so spine-chillingly satisfying that I really couldn’t compare it to anything else except other Star Wars games. “Star Wars: Battlefront” is here at last, and the gamers of the world are having a hard time deciding […]

“Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate” review

  With the industrial revolution looming in London, child labor is at an all-time high, gangs roam the streets and the world takes tentative strides towards technological progress. What does this mean for you? More Assassin and Templar shenanigans. That’s all fine and dandy since “Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate” feels like a much fresher and well […]

“The Bridge” review

  An interesting platformer that uses M.C. Escher-style stages, “The Bridge” will push the bounds of your creative thinking skills.

Not to mention the buzz it’s gotten […]

“Mortal Kombat X” review

Games like “Mortal Kombat X” come with a pedigree that reaches back years. Fighting games have such an ingrained presence in all of gaming that many people only associate video games with “Street Fighter” or “Mortal Kombat.” Couple that “MK’s” history of gratuitous violence, and you’ve got a game that is impossible to pass up […]

“Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number” review

Synth-80s-house music was not my thing for a long time, but it became my thing while killing droves of faceless foes in a neon haze while it pumped in the background. “Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number” is exactly what you’d expect it to be: Brutal violence layered within a top-down shooter that is fast-paced and punishing.
