SUNSET OVERDRIVE Fashionably Late Video Game Review

SUNSET OVERDRIVE is a shining beacon among the arguably overdone and tired “open-world” gaming genre. In a world full of ASSASSIN’S CREED, WATCH DOGS, GTA, INFAMOUS, JUST CAUSE, THE WITCHER, SLEEPING DOGS, CRA...

FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 HD Fashionably Late Video Game Review

Square-Enix hit an undeniable rough path for several years. Starting with FINAL FANTASY XIII, each FINAL FANTASY title they released seemed to fall somewhere between passable and downright bad. Two sequels to a game that not a ...

FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN Fashionably Late Video Game Review

I can assuredly say that I have never heard of a company releasing a game of such poor quality before pulling a complete reversal to rerelease it as one of the best games in its genre. It seems absurd quite frankly. When FINAL ...

FAR CRY 4 Fashionably Late Video Game Review

DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION Fashionably Late Video Game Review

There is without a doubt in my mind that DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION is the best in the series.  If any RPG lover overlooked this game, then it stands that they are just missing out, period.  The story, the pacing, the variety, a...

MIDDLE EARTH: SHADOW OF MORDOR Video Game Review

What’s better than lopping off an orc’s head?  Watching every head from the entire horde detach from their bodies, duh!  Curiously morbid.  WB Games and Monolith Studios successfully reskin the Batman: Arkham g...

MARIO KART 8 Video Game Review

Would you believe me if I told you that the MARIO KART franchise is 22 years old!? If you have memories of whirling around the 16-bit tracks of the Super Nintendo original, you may be feeling a bit old right now. Sigh. That sa...

INFAMOUS: SECOND SON Video Game Review

INFAMOUS: SECOND SON culminates into a sublime super-powered frenzy full of extreme moments. So lost had I become in the brilliant fray of combat and scenery that any moment of boredom brought on by the story in Sucker Punch’...
