Yakuza 0 Review

Yakuza 0 is a niche game designed for a Japanese audience first, it's extremely story heavy, and it does have some outdated design mechanics/elements and even graphics (it kinda feels like a remastered PS2 game). If you can get into it though, you're likely to find a very engrossing experience with a lot to offer. If you're like me though, you're probably going to have a hard time getting into it as a newcomer to the series.

Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider

The Tomb Raider reboot of 2013 was my dark horse game of the year, as it was for many other people. It was impressive and it struck a nice balance on gameplay and challenges that drew in many new fans to the series, including myself.

Simply put: This is the next watershed and if they can continue to crank out games like this at this level of quality the I hope they making these games for as long as they sell because I'll never get tired of something like this. I'll welcome a game like this every year with wide open arms.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

Today we shall look at a fun, but slightly flawed game, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Middle-Earth is an action adventure RPG romp into the universe of the Lord of the Rings. With that established and without further adieu, let's get this show on the road. I believe that I have stated on numerous occasions that am… Continue reading Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Review

I am a huge fan of the Assassin's Creed games so admittedly I approach these games with a healthy benefit of the doubt and positive bias in place. I hope I'm not an outright fanboy and I don't think I am since I can harp on some quibbles and nitpicks I had from previous games,… Continue reading Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Review
