Resonance

Tuesday, July 3, 2012 No Comments

I fell in love with point-and-click adventure games as a kid (not the ones where you could die and have to start all over, but more… forgiving titles), so Resonance was quite the jolt to my memory’s pleasure centres. A classically-styled, story-driven mystery following four characters as they try to uncover what or who was […]

Batman: Arkham City Video Review

Thursday, March 1, 2012 No Comments

In this week’s video, L.E. and Nathan discuss Batman: Arkham City, the follow-up to Game of the Year award-winning Batman: Arkham Asylum. How will the sequel stand up? Well, if you’ve played it, you already know. But it’s still worth watching anyway. Click the link to watch!

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn

Wednesday, January 4, 2012 1 Comment

I think it’s time Ubisoft stopped making movie-based video games. Does that mean I’m about to call the Tintin movie-based game awful and not worth touching with a 10-foot pole? No, actually. It has its graphical issues in the cutscenes and an aggravating lack of camera control in the free-roaming 3D sections (specifically, none), however […]

Assassin's Creed Revelations

Assassin’s Creed Revelations

Thursday, December 8, 2011 No Comments

Assassin’s Creed has been one of my favorite franchises these past few years. Recently, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, the fourth game in the series, released, and I’m a little torn. The gameplay and combat is as satisfyingly awesome as its predecessors, but aside from a few minor tweaks, the game hasn’t changed all that much. The […]

The Asskickers

Friday, September 23, 2011 No Comments

The Asskickers is a lovingly hand-drawn side-scrolling beat ‘em up title that brings to mind classics like the Ninja Turtles arcade game, Double Dragon and, to some extent, Golden Axe, only better looking versions thereof. Unfortunately, that’s basically where its positives end. The environment refresh rates are slow, the character animation is highly lacking and […]

Duke Nukem Forever

Duke Nukem Forever

Friday, September 9, 2011 No Comments

Eli pretty much entirely captured my thoughts on Duke Nukem Forever. I think I’ll just add that I did appreciate some of the self-referential humor and I did have some fun playing it, but for a game that was twelve years in the making it was far too standard, and uninspired. Also, the loading times […]

F.E.A.R. 3

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 No Comments

There may have been elements of horror in F.E.A.R. 3, but overall it just felt like a more ominous Call of Duty. Sure there were some spooks, but those moments were few and far between, and the rest (or majority) of the game was just your standard first-person shooter. Not to say that it isn’t […]

Duke Nukem Forever

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 1 Comment

I want to say that playing Duke Nukem Forever has left me conflicted – appeased by a hit of excessively violent, campy nostalgia, but disappointed by graphical inferiority, unnecessarily slow loading times and its refusal to even try innovating. I would, but the mix of the aforementioned issues and the game’s lackluster attempts to be […]

Call of Juarez: The Cartel

Wednesday, August 3, 2011 No Comments

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems that the past two games in the Call of Juarez franchise were released before their completion. Regardless of who’s to blame for that, be it Ubisoft for pushing for too early a release date, or Techland for claiming they were ready before they truly were, Bound in Blood […]

Portal 2

Dear Valve, thank you for driving me insane with a constant sense of pending doom. Thank you for bringing back amazing puzzle and physics-based gameplay elements while somehow managing to introduce new and exciting features as well. Thank you for the hysterical humour that made me laugh out loud. Thank you creating a backstory that […]
