Assassin’s Creed Rogue

"When I am issued new recruits burdened with regrets, I tell them the surest way to lose them is with gunpowder." - Colonel George Monro Developed by Ubisoft Sofia and created using the Anvilnext proprietary engine, Assassin's Creed Rogue is a near-refreshing take on the seven-year old franchise. Rogue is a direct sequel to last year's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and the plot is situated aroun...[Read More]

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution

The latest, and perhaps final Naruto game of last gen, packs in over 100 playable characters...betcha can't name them all!

Batman: Arkham Origins — Cold, Cold Heart

Of the many memorable boss fights in the Batman Arkham titles, the showdown with Mr. Freeze in Arkham City stood out to me as one of the most creative, engaging moments in the series.  So I was delighted to learn that the origin of Mr. Freeze would be the focus of this new campaign DLC appropriately titled, 'Cold, Cold Heart.'  However, I found that both the eventual confrontation with Mr. Freeze ...[Read More]

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

The game based on the grandest event for the world's biggest sport is back!  EA Sports lines up an kicks off this spring with the latest World Cup game to offer a really fun and surprisingly deep simulation to the summer's premier event.

Titanfall

Time to standby (again)!  EA and Respawn Entertainment have teamed up with Bluepoint Games to bring a port of this wildly popular sci-fi FPS to the Xbox 360.  While there are noticeable downgrades in the presentation department, the essence of control and gameplay are wholly intact.  This recreates the frenetic, epic, insanely fun online experience that One and PC owners have been enjoying for ove...[Read More]

Earth Defense Force 2025

Earth Defense Force 2035 is a game focused on obliterating giant alien bugs and colossal robots with obscene firearms. Again.

Strider

Strider hits the ground running - and carrying all of the weight implicit in its brash temperament.

NASCAR 14

Time to rev up those virtual engines once again!  Eutechnyx is back with new publishing partner Deep Silver to bring us the 3rd installment of their brand of NASCAR to consoles.  Improvements in the handling department are shackled by overly aggressive AI and yet another disappointing online component.

Rekoil: Liberator

There are "growing pains" in all professions.  Video game design is no exception.  From 505 Games and rookie development team Plastic Piranha, this Xbox LIVE Arcade title for the 360 is a port from a multiplayer-only FPS available for PC.  While I haven't played the computer predecessor, Liberator is, unfortunately, quite bad in pretty much every aspect.

Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!

Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW! is a game best played with up to three other friends in local co-op mode, and even then it's probably only best in 1-2 hour spurts. It could make for a decent diversion for old school dungeon crawler fans, though.

The Bridge

Originally released on Steam in February, Midnight City's mind-bending puzzler The Bridge was released on XBLA this week.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea

BioShock Infinite demonstrated how to properly deliver a conclusive story while still leaving room for sequel-requisite ambiguity. By the end, or at least after some spirited discussion with friends, a competent understanding of what happened was achieved. In a medium where narrative often lacks any sort of patience or subtlety, BioShock Infinite assumed the role of an outlier and assigned itself ...[Read More]
