Sunset Overdrive Review

Insomniac Games are well known for many classic games. Most of them are incredibly lighthearted and fun. Some are quite boring and duds, but we don’t have to talk about Overstrike. Where most open-world action games these days are pretty dark, gritty, and somewhat realistic, Insomniac introduces us to a city that is bright, colorful, and over the top. It just so happens to be over run with mutated monsters, hell bent on drinking more Of the energy drink that turned them into monsters anyway. Sunset Overdrive is quite a breath of fresh air on the Xbox One, there aren’t any of its kind that I can think of released within the console’s first year that comes close to the highly stylized world of Sunset City.

Destiny Review

Arguably the highest profile game of 2014, Destiny is also one that delivers. It is one of the most addictive games that’s played across my TV in some time now. The combat is fun and the graphics are beautiful, the Traveler just keeps me coming back for more and more. Destiny is an online first-person shooter with RPG elements that makes things feel closer to a massively multiplayer online title rather than a familiar first person shooter. This gives the game some character to stand out from other big name shooters like Call of Duty and Bungie’s original baby, Halo.

Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha Review

Dead Rising 3 was one of the better launch titles on the Xbox One. Not tied to small sections with load times and a mass of zombies filling your screen, Dead Rising 3 became what I finally wanted to experience. Even with some back story related DLC, I had my fill after finishing the game, but here they come with something right out of left field that is possibly the most bizarre and fantastic piece of DLC I’ve seen in awhile. If it isn’t apparent by name alone, this Capcom takes this DLC pokes fun at it’s self with the ridiculous name and fills the game with loads of fan service. If you own a copy of Dead Rising 3, do yourself a favor and splurge a bit on this crazy piece of content. …continue reading » Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha Review

Dark Souls II Review

Dark Souls has gained quite the following over the past couple years and the series just keeps bringing in new players. With the Souls series “go anywhere play anyway you like” style, Souls games tend to be different for each and every player. This makes the task of creating a direct sequel difficult with such a wide variety of expectations on the line. From Software took to this challenge and created a title that was more of the same, and it’s wonderful.

Kontrol Freak: FPSFreak Phantom and FPSFreak CQC Signature – Joystick Add-On Review

I’ve always been a stickler for controller comfort with my small Asian hands, so larger controllers and taller sticks have always been an issue for me (Shakes fist at the original Xbox Duke). When I got KontrolFreak’s Phantom and CQC products in, I was a little cautious as to how well they would work. Long story short, I came away mostly positive.

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare Review

The Xbox One doesn’t have many titles to it’s name, but it is growing. Think of Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare as a pretty dandelion. It’s just another plant poking it’s head out of the ground; a weed among flowers. To a young mind though, a dandelion is pretty flower; one worthy to give your love. Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare can be thought of as just another team based shooter on a console that has a history of hosting shooters. Plants vs Zombies stands out with it’s bright colorful aesthetic and cartoon-y design among all the greys and browns of other shooters, plus it’s fun to play, so there’s that.

Jazzpunk Review

Doing comedy in video games is hard, it’s not seen too often. Focusing a game squarely around comedy, thats incredibly hard and almost unheard of. After playing through Jazzpunk, from Necrophone Games, I can safely say that it can be done. Jazzpunk is hilarious and dare I say, one of the funniest games I’ve played in quite a while.

Slender: The Arrival Review

The Slender Man tale is fairly well known at this point with its explosion of fans on the Internet. First came the story in 2009 by a member of the Something Awful forums, then eventually came the videogame adaptation with “Slender: The Eight Pages”. When it was released, it was a free PC game created by Indie developer Parsec Productions, the premise was simple, find eight notes hidden around a large forest in pitch black with nothing but a flashlight. The more pages you aquired, the more likely the sharp dressed faceless Slender Man would show. Stare at him long enough or if he gets too close and it is game over.
