“Alien: Isolation” review

There’s something about being trapped in a confined space and being hunted by a near-invincible alien life-form that just brings out the worst in people. Survivors tend to turn on each other, kindly synthetic robots become menacing wardens to keep you in the places you don’t want to be, and you yourself revert to your […]

“Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor” review

Warner Brothers Games has brought us some great titles over the years. A majority of the games in the “Batman: Arkham” series have been good, and “Injustice: Gods Among Us” was actually really enjoyable. With “Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor,” I had some expectations for the game to be of good quality. Not only that, but […]

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will feature new modes of transportation

The next installment of “The Witcher” franchise is coming to Xbox One, PlayStaion 4 and PC with some new toys. Fans of the series will remember that previously protagonist Geralt of Rivia could only traverse the lands on foot.

“Super Time Force” review

Shoot’em ups are always fun diversions from the daily grind of overly-complicated, story-driven triple-A titles that fill the market. Sometimes, a side-scroller with a quirky hook and some fun level design is all one needs to pass a couple of hours. The only problem with “Super Time Force” on Xbox One being that diversion, is […]

This Week In Gaming

Will Ferrel’s SuperMegaBlastMax Gamer Challenge It appears that some good is coming after the transition pains faced with Amazon’s $970 million purchase of Twitch. Comedian Will Ferrell teamed up with Twitch to raise funds for the Cancer for College fund (which helps cancer survivors achieve a college education) and DonateGames.org. Donating $10 to the cause […]

Back in the Metro with “Metro: Redux”

I was excited to play “Metro: Redux” on the Xbox One. Honestly, it was because I hadn’t finished the two games included in the package, “Metro: 2033” and “Metro: Last Light,” after I initially picked them up on PC, and wanted a chance to get at them both on my new console. That being said, having both […]

“Max: The Curse of Brotherhood” review

As one of the first two games offered to Xbox Live Gold subscribers for free on Xbox One as part of the Games with Gold program, this sidescrolling puzzle-platforming game is a fun little distraction from the more beefy triple-A games, but it is a bit short and can be pretty frustrating at times. Developed […]
