SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD Video Game Review

For a fat Italian plumber, Mario gets around. From cobbled castles and dank underground tunnels, to floating ships that sail through the clouds, to conquering entire worlds, to vacationing on tropical islands, and all the way i...

ASSASSIN’S CREED IV Video Game Review

I can honestly say that I felt quite negative going into ASSASSIN’S CREED IV. I have been a huge fan of the series since the original cover story in Game Informer, but after playing through the mildly disappointing ASSASSINâ€...

CONTRAST Video Game Review

I didn’t have high hopes for CONTRAST going into the game. I didn’t particularly think it looked like a fantastic adventure that must be bought. CONTRAST ended up being a good deal more fun and far more interesting ...

CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS Video Game Review

I feel obligated to tell everyone I’m not a huge CALL OF DUTY fan (say whaaaaaaat!?) and have only really dabbled my way through the franchise over the years. I messed with (but never completed) a handful of the World War...

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: A LINK BETWEEN WORLDS Video Game Review

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA is a series that has always inspired imagination. In the original LEGEND OF ZELDA the player is dropped into a world with minimal direction. With little more to go on than a cryptic hermit urging “It’s d...

RYSE: SON OF ROME Video Game Review

Ever since Crytek unvield gameplay footage of  RYSE: SON OF ROME at this year’s E3 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo) it has been the subject of confusion and criticism. Both the confusion and criticism came from the s...

BATMAN: ARKHAM ORIGINS Video Game Review

Reviewed for the X-Box 360 version of the game. When people talk about comic book superheroes, one name that’s always brought up is Batman – and that’s for good reason. Batman is easily one of the most interes...

NI NO KUNI: WRATH OF THE WHITE WITCH Video Game Review

There is something undeniably magical about Studio Ghibli films (FROM UP ON POPPY HILL). The vibrant colors, rich stories, and deep characters all meld together to create a film larger than the sum of their parts that stays wit...

GRAND THEFT AUTO V Video Game Review

Whenever Rockstar releases a video game the gaming world takes notice, that’s especially true when the game being released is an entry in the GRAND THEFT AUTO (GTA) series. Few games get as much hype around its release ...

BIOSHOCK INFINITE Video Game Review

Every few years a game comes along that can whisk you away to a far off land and make you really believe it exists. These games are the pinnacle of the medium and stand far and above the competition, looking down at them from t...

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: THE WIND WAKER HD Video Game Review

The Wii U has been aching for a great game to play on it for months now. There have been some worthwhile games like Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Pikmin 3 but the Wii U has been lacking greatly for the most part this year. Nint...

ONE PIECE PIRATE WARRIORS 2 Video Game Review

The ONE PIECE manga has been going strong for over 16 years and shows no signs of slowing down. The simple tale of a young boy setting out to find the greatest treasure of them all and become king of the pirates has enthralled...

CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW – MIRROR OF FATE Nintendo 3DS Review

CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW – MIRROR OF FATE  is a difficult game to put your finger on. As I sat thinking about how to review it my main feeling was one of ambivalence. If a game is great or if a game is awful at least...

Hidden Gems: DEAR ESTHER for PC

DEAR ESTHER has come a long way since its days as a HλLF-LIFE2 mod. The quiet, unassuming game—now a standalone that masterfully utilizes Valve’s Source engine—started its life under the constraints of a game whose m...
