Fallout 4 – Far Harbor Review

Far Harbor is simply the only thing really worth experiencing in the Season Pass for Fallout 4. It’s a blunt, but fair statement to make. Automatron and Wasteland Workshop had diminishing returns for the Season Pass. Far Harbor is like Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion’s “The Shivering Isles” or Fallout 3’s “Point Lookout” expansions, in that they offer sprawling landscapes in all new locations where thought and care was taken into crafting these places. Far Harbor is the next great example, exploring an island off the coast of Maine, is a trip full of mystery, secrets, and unexpected diversions that will capture your attention for another dozen hours.

Shadwen Review

Shadwen is one of the more refreshing takes on stealth that I’ve gotten to play in recent years. Frozenbyte’s deviation from the Trine series shows that they have a penchant for making beautiful and different styles of games. Though, Shadwen is a game where success happens in short bursts, and failure occurs in large quantities – which is normal for a stealth game. But in the case of Shadwen, this is a game where frustration is out of your control. Thankfully time is in your control, easing what would be a game that would be written off as lackluster, and is instead a challenge worth undertaking.

Here’s how to play TimeSplitters 2 in Homefront: The Revolution

HomefrontTRTS2_featured

After being closed by Crytek and sold to Deep Silver, the studio formerly known as Free Radical was reborn as Dambuster Studios, with most of the original staff in-tact. Free Radical is mostly known for the TimeSplitters series, and as an easter egg inside Homefront: The Revolution, the first two levels of TimeSplitters 2 are playable.

Homefront: The Revolution Review

The sequel to 2011’s Homefront is finally here after four years of development by the studio now known as Dambuster Studios. While Homefront: The Revolution is not directly connected to people and places of the original game, it resides in the fictional future in which The North Koreans are settled in with their occupation of America. This is something that’s far-fetched and unlikely to occur, but is nonetheless entertaining of an idea. Taking place in Philadelphia, you’re placed in the middle of a group getting ready to begin a revolution that takes you all over the city to liberate zones to gain the support of the denizens. What better place to regain independence than from the city that birthed it.

Raiden V Review

The Raiden series celebrates 25 years, and Moss Co Ltd has returned with the next entry: Raiden V, which is exclusive to the Xbox One. This sh’mup series has evolved and iterated on the past to provide a true sequel that not only looks good, but plays well and does some really cool things with the extra screen space to provide valuable information to the player. This is also the best playing Raiden to-date, making Raiden V is also the best introduction to the series you could have.

Battleborn Review

Battleborn is amalgamation of games that has elements of MOBAs, role-playing games, and first-person shooters that does a lot, but all of it well enough to enjoy and be able to sink enormous amounts of time into. Gearbox Software knows how to make a character-driven game, and it is no different with Battleborn. In fact, the game is an extravaganza of a showcase, as the game is overrun with characters with unique personalities and individual traits. This, coupled with a fun campaign missions and unique multiplayer makes this one of the more positive multiplayer experiences I’ve had.
