From the first plucks of the guitar strings in the hauntingly beautiful score, you know THE LAST OF US is going to be something special. Going into THE LAST OF US REMASTERED having already completed the game on the PS3 I knew e...

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’...

DANGANRONPA: TRIGGER HAPPY HAVOC Video Game Review

I went into DANGANRONPA mostly unaware of what I had in store for myself. I had started watched the anime based on the game but stopped in the first episode because I wanted to experience everything first when I played the game...

FINAL FANTASY X & X-2 HD Collection Review

FINAL FANTASY X seemed like a new beginning for the FINAL FANTASY series when it released in 2001. Everything about it mesmerized me when I first laid eyes on it. The worn heroes gathered around a fire in a wasteland, the amazi...

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 ASSASSIN...

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...

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...
