Bioshock Infinite

Bioshock Infinite

Friday, April 5, 2013 No Comments

Yep, Bioshock Infinite is incredible. Everything from the story, gameplay, graphics and soundscape was just top notch. In terms of plot, it sets itself up in a very similar fashion to the original Bioshock game, but instead of an underwater world, this one blasts you off you into this enormous and breathtaking sky city. Why […]

LEGO Lord of the Rings Box

LEGO: The Lord of the Rings

Thursday, January 31, 2013 No Comments

There must be something wrong with me… Once I pick up LEGO: LOTR, I can’t put it down. Sure, that bodes well for the game, but it’s an absolute horror for my circadian rhythm! It’s a fun adaptation of Peter Jackson’s films, distilling the action down to the core story and throwing in typical LEGO […]

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3

Tuesday, December 18, 2012 No Comments

Rarely do I play a game that has rich characters. Usually it’s a blank-faced male lead, who’s, on occasion, exaggeratedly inflated with testosterone, and a Foreign/Alien antagonist hell bent on world domination. But Far Cry 3 broke that mold and introduced some really compelling and deep characters. In addition, the game itself is wonderfully engaging. […]

Dishonored

Dishonored

Monday, November 12, 2012 No Comments

The style of Dishonored is very reminiscent of Bioshock. The general ambiance, and the cartoonish look to the characters and environment, gave off a comparable vibe. And much like Bioshock, you have a variety of weapons and supernatural abilities at your disposal. On top of that, each level has multiple avenues you can take to […]

Mad Riders

My goodness! Techland has actually done it! They’ve created a game that doesn’t feel like a massive tech demo! Sure, it’s an arcade title, and it’s smaller than full retail titles… and it’s an offroad racing title that plays very similarly to other arcade-style offroad racing games, but still. Mad Riders is fast, fun, and […]

PES 2013

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013

Tuesday, October 16, 2012 No Comments

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is one tough cookie of a game. It took me many losses to finally score a single goal. But let me tell you, the moment I did, it was like finding a cheesecake… amazing! Moreover, every subsequent goal filled me with the same sense of satisfaction. In terms of graphics, the […]

Darksiders 2

Darksiders 2

Thursday, September 27, 2012 No Comments

With its enormous running time, Darksiders 2 is one of the longest action/adventure/hack n’ slash games I’ve played. And for that, I graciously tip my hat to THQ/Vigil. Moreover, the action was very satisfying! However, there are a few things that made me raise an eyebrow. For example, why does Death need a gun? And, […]

Babel Rising

Babel Rising

Monday, July 30, 2012 No Comments

Like any good arcade game, Babel Rising is quite addictive (and occasionally frustrating). After every level, I wanted to see what was coming next, what slight challenge bump the game had in store. Using the four elements (although you can only use two of them in each level) in a three dimensional space, you have […]

Mad Riders

With Trial Evolutions being as fun as it was, I was somewhat trepidatious going into Mad Riders. What are the odds that two arcade games based on dirt related vehicles would be good? Well, as it turns out, it is actually quite superb as well. It’s fast paced, the graphics are sharp, there are many […]

Babel Rising

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 No Comments

Somehow I get the feeling that Babel Rising would have done really well had it been made a few years ago. This biblical take on the Tower Defense genre has a quirky design and puts you into the role of a god, smiting non-believers who are attempting to build a tower to the heavens. Unfortunately, […]
