DiRT 4

I am a big motorsport fan. There is barely a formula I won’t watch and have been following the main categories for as long as I can remember. I have a huge appreciation for any driver who has reached the pinnacle of their chosen category as it takes a certain kind of someone to drive cars consistently fast. However, there is one form of motorsport whose drivers I hold in the highest regards....[Read More]

Seasons After Fall

As I write this review I am listening to the soundtrack for Seasons After Fall. I can safely say that this is a rarity. However, such is its beauty it just felt right to do so. Composed by Yann Van Der Cruyssen it is a masterful use of the strings. So intrinsically linked with the game itself, you can almost recount the whole story just by listening. It’s an ongoing discussion in the gaming ...[Read More]

Expeditions: Viking

Vikings are often noted as being some of the more badass historical figures, and Expedition: Viking exemplifies this to the utmost degree. Feeling as if it was pulled straight out of the first season of Game of Thrones, Expedition: Viking throws players right into the thick of things from the get-go. But while the tone and feel is absolutely nailed throughout the game, I often found there to be wa...[Read More]

Animal Kingdom – Season 1

Part “Sons of Anarchy”, part “Point Break”, Animal Kingdom’s first season was compelling, thrilling and entertaining throughout; it just unfortunately left me wanting more. Yes, all of the key ingredients for a successful TV drama are here, but so much of the show is well-treaded ground, I find it hard to believe the showrunners could not find something new to add to the formula. While I loved the...[Read More]

Holobunnies: Pause Café

I don’t recall the last time, if ever, that a game’s spin-off title has appeared before the game it has been spun off from. Still, there’s a first time for everything and Holobunnies: Pause Café manages to achieve just that. Launching ahead of its parent (Holobunnies: The Bittersweet Adventure) it comprises of three mini-games to introduce to the Holobunnies and their world. What’s unfortunate is ...[Read More]

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX

The hype for Kingdom Hearts 3 is real, and what a perfect time to jump into the series if you never have before. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX is the perfect set for new players of the series, and perhaps even fans of the series who may have fallen out after the slew of spinoff games that have been released. Not only does KH 1.5 + 2.5 give you access to the two main Kingdom Hearts games, it gives...[Read More]

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Review Addendum / Companion Article

There is so much to cover about a game as deep as Breath of the Wild that it’s nearly impossible to fit it all into one cohesive review.  As a result of that, I’ve prepared a companion article with even more specificity (but still with careful attention to spoilers) to address some of the myths and misconceptions about Zelda, as well as my response to some of the more common criticisms. Before we ...[Read More]

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I think you are now ready… ready to hear what happened two weeks ago. Dear impatient optimists, dear pragmatic skeptics, dear dedicated detractors… I choose to begin this review in perhaps the most declarative and divisive way possible, so buckle up for some hyperbolic blasphemy: Enchanting.  Sprawling.  Overwhelming.  Groundbreaking.  Mind-blowing. Masterpiece. You see, whether or not you can pos...[Read More]

For Honor

This may sound a bit crazy at first, but my first hour playing For Honor gave me an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Seeing as many of For Honor’s elements are so uniquely crafted, it would be hard to give an apt comparison to any game before it. However, I could not help myself but compare my first moments of For Honor to the nearly 9-year old underrated PS3/360 game Lord of the Rings: Conquest. ...[Read More]

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

There are few games that are more anticipated than the much delayed Kingdom Hearts 3. Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue (hereafter referred to as KH 2.8) is a compilation of games that serves not only as an opportunity to allow fans play KH Dream Drop Distance, but to serve as an amazing teaser for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3. But without further ado, the review. Kingdom Hearts X: Back C...[Read More]

Dead Rising 4

I have fond memories of the original Dead Rising game. I played the demo (remember those?) repeatedly until the day came when I picked it up after its full release. It was everything I wanted it to be and then some. There were masses of zombies and a myriad of ways to dispatch them. Added to the mix were fellow survivors in need of being rescued and some rather unhinged people who needed to be dea...[Read More]

Super Dungeon Bros

I’ll be honest, when I saw that Super Dungeon Bros (SDB) was to be launched and become instantly a Games with Gold I was a touch worried. It’s like seeing a sequel to a movie you liked being direct to DVD release, you instantly meet it with a tinge of doubt. For me, at least, it sends a message that either the game isn’t that great or, more likely, it’s filled with microtra...[Read More]
