BlazeRush

BlazeRush Review

BlazeRush is a fast paced action racer with an isometric almost slanted top-down perspective. It harkens back to classic Micro Machines with combat and Mario Kart style boosters. The game features a career mode that largely feels like one big tutorial. Here you’ll do things like complete solo […]

Alien Isolation

Alien Isolation Review

When Alien: Isolation was first announced the reaction of the gaming community was muted with cautious optimism at best coming off of a needless disaster like Colonial Marines that really should have been a fantastic game but unforgivably wasn’t. As more footage and information leaked out the sense […]

The Expendables 3 Review

In this third installment of the Expendables franchise we learn a little bit about the origins of Barney Frank and Lee Christmas’ (Stallone and Statham) gang of do-gooder mercenaries. Apparently the team was originally co-founded with Frank by a man named Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson) who eventually tired […]

Unrest

Unrest Review

Unrest is an RPG that is vastly different than anything I would usually play. There’s no real combat in the game and there are no puzzles to solve. There’s no leveling up or experience gained. There’s not even one main character to play as. Unrest is set in […]

MouseCraft

MouseCraft Review

There may be a drought of big release titles on the new gaming consoles, but one thing PS4 isn’t lacking is quality indie titles. A couple of these digital games release every month, and July started off hot with the release of MouseCraft from Curve Studios. MouseCraft is a “simple” puzzle game in the vein of something like Lemmings only much more enjoyable in this day and age. You’re tasked with helping three mice get past a series of obstacles to get to the cheese. To complete the level, you only need to get one mouse to the cheese.

Sniper Elite 3

Sniper Elite 3 Review

This series is a welcome breath of fresh air against run and gun shooting and you can see from my previous reviews that I’m overall enthusiastic about this series despite some quibbles and annoyances which, unfortunately, remain for this new game. Being a sequel this means I have to be a little less forgiving this time around since there weren’t enough fundamental improvements that needed to happen.

Murdered Soul Suspect

Murdered Soul Suspect Review

Murdered Soul Suspect starts off with a bang, or more accurately, a crash. Detective Ronan O’Connor is thrown out of an upstairs(4th floor I believe) window of an apartment building in Salem, Massachusetts. O’Connor was pursuing the a vicious serial killer known only as The Bell Killer. The multi-story […]

Blue Estate The Game

Blue Estate Review

If you don’t know what Blue Estate is (and I didn’t), it’s a comic book by Viktor Kalvachev. This is a digital only game, based on the comic, by developers HeSaw (from what I can gather, the first game from the Paris based developing studio). It’s unlike anything […]

Sparkle 2

Sparkle 2 Review

Match three games have been popular for over a decade now thanks to their addictive simplicity and ultimately their challenge. These types of games come in a few different flavors; some require you to switch adjacent pieces to match three of a color or type (like the Saga […]
