Mario Kart 8 comes out of the gate, shells-a-blazing. With some fantastic track design and visuals to match, it's sure to be enjoyed by fans and newcomers to the series alike. However, if you're looking for a competent Battle Mode, look elsewhere - here you're just running around your standard racing tracks simply trying to find someone to hit, and that's just disappointing. An online mode is good for playing random matches, but kind of a pain to use for anything else. Read More.
Tales of Symphonia: Chronicles revives the original Gamecube RPG and its sequel in an HD format, forgetting to actually add any more content beyond remastered textures. These are the best versions to play, for sure, but only if you have yet to play the originals at all. Read More.

Contrast is a fantastic game that I’d recommend to any fan of platforming games immediately. The only real bar to that is the price tag is kind of high and the game is on the shorter side. If the game had any real sort of replay value, barring hunting for collectibles that explain the story more, that would be no real issue but unless you love the game like I do it’s going to be a one and done. So this is a definite recommend but there is a bit of an asterisk on that. Read More.

Not only is Watch Dogs clearly a technical marvel just days before it's release, it also seems to have completely nailed the meta experience and tone of the game. When a small 15 minute demo offers so many ways to tackle objectives, we can only imagine how much freedom players will have in this enormous cyberpunk world when the game is finally unleashed on PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC on May 27, 2014.

Honestly it’s kind of hard to really talk about TESO since its name is so indicative of what it is – an online version of any other Elder Scrolls game. While it may be set far in the past it controls much like any of the modern games with the one concession of the other players in the world. There have been gameplay tweaks but the whole thing is just so familiar and comfortable to any fan of the series that it just feels like home. Read More.
All of this is captured neatly by the digital edition. It plays smoothly even on fairly weak laptops which helps this games appeal even more by making it portable. While it might lose some of the charms by losing the ability to move your pieces around on your own all of the convenience captured right here really makes it worth owning. Read More.

The first time you play a new game in the Dark Souls series you’re immediately going to feel like you’re in over your head. This is doubly true when there’s no instruction manual or strategy guide to pore over. You’re just going to have to figure this old the old fashioned way boys and girls! Luckily this is a game series where anyone who plays it is expecting to die plenty more times. Read More.
