Kirby: Planet Robobot Review

For better or worse, very little has changed with Kirby. He’s a fluffy pink sphere that inhales nearly everything with extreme prejudice. But that paints a darker image than what you know about Kirby. He’s a do-gooder, out to right the wrongs that he comes across. Kirby: Planet Robobot continues that trend for Kirby, and does so in just enough and exciting ways that make this adventure new and perhaps a bit too easy for older players, but is enjoyable all the same.

Forza Horizon 3 Blizzard Mountain Review

I’m the man on the Blizzard Mountain ♫ The first expansion for the excellent Forza Horizon 3 is Blizzard Mountain, an expansion that wants you to get out of the heat and into the cold. It is a playground and winter wonderland in the mountains of Australia. It feels distinct from the base game to not feel samey, and is one of the best expansions in Forza history.

Necropolis Review

I’m not sure exactly how I feel about this game. I like the fact its combat is very Dark Souls-esque. It requires timing and some strategy. But I don’t particularly enjoy losing all my progress upon death. This game walks this weird line where I want to enjoy it but I also want to hate it.

Dead Rising 4 Review

Frank West is back, and Dead Rising 4 is better for it. This is also return to Willamette, Colorado. While the town has changed, the mall has been rebuilt, and Frank West looks and sounds different; the things that haven’t changed is the sense of humor, the self-aware attitude, and the thousands of zombies left to kill. I can see Dead Rising 4 being divisive for some long-time fans, but for me, this was exactly what I needed and wanted out of the series for the longest time – It’s the best gift to be given this holiday season.

FINAL FANTASY XV Review

I grew up in my younger teen years, playing Final Fantasy. I had dabbled into the genre a bit when I was younger but it was the PlayStation era that really got me into the franchise. These days, everyone seems to have a different preference to what Final Fantasy is the best, or which one resonates with them the most as each one has different story and mechanics. After numerous delays of Final Fantasy Versus and it being changed into FFXV, does it come through being an experience worth the wait? Much like all the other Final Fantasy games, that’s going to be up for debate forever.

Super Mario Maker for 3DS‎ Review

After a year, Super Mario Maker makes its way to the small screen of your Nintendo 3DS. This is a portable version of Super Mario Maker that you’ve always wanted, but it isn’t as powerful as its larger console brother. And getting the game onto handhelds required a lot of concessions to be made, and not all of them made sense. However, Super Mario Maker for 3DS manages to still be engaging, rewarding, and a lot of fun to play – in isolation.

Planet Coaster Review

I don’t particularly enjoy strategy games. I don’t know what it is, but if a game requires just a little too much thinking, I have practically no desire to play it in my downtime. I’m a lazy casual I suppose. Though Planet Coaster… Planet Coaster did something to me. I played Theme Park and Theme Hospital as a kid. But at that time I had no concept of winning or losing in a video game – maybe I just never beat the first level.

Watch Dogs 2 Review

Watch Dogs was an interesting new IP that came out in 2014. It took the Assassin’s Creed molded Ubisoft open-world formula, and set it in a modern day world with hacking as your tool in place of a hidden blade. It wasn’t perfect, the characters kind of sucked, but I enjoyed it.

Cities: Skylines – Natural Disasters Review

Cities: Skylines was a game where I was fine playing a city-builder that didn’t have disasters in it, mainly because I, like many of us, destroyed our own cities simply by poor planning. But those wanting more out of the game were out of luck, as it simply wasn’t there. Natural Disasters adds a layer of complexity and challenge that while I don’t find it to be a necessary addition, it is a much welcomed one that makes Cities: Skylines feels more of a complete game than when it launched in early 2015.

Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tactical Audio Command (T.A.C.) Review

Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tactical Audio Command (T.A.C.) is a mouthful to say, and by looking at the packaging, it is very much as technical as it sounds, but not as complicated. It is a necessary companion to the Turtle Beach Elite Pro headset, and will enhance any wired headset, but isn’t required. This control unit provides many improves to a standard headset, but gives you total control on the audio you deliver and receive. It also gives great visual feedback via its bright LED lighting system at just a glance regarding how you’re using it. Regardless of what you use it with, the TAC is an expensive add-on that works for your money.
