Why I Won't Be Playing Sims 4

By Naomi Brown ()

With all the hype about the Sims 4, I expected an updated game with new features, new interactions and better gameplay that would improve my experience and make me excited about switching from Sims 3 to 4. Instead, I've had to make a baffling decision to stick with the Sims 3 for the life cycle of Sims 4 due to the underwhelming presentation of the newest game in the series. Read More.

Tower of Guns Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

What is important here is that Tower of Guns actually plays really damn well once you get past the initial difficulty of just starting the game. Some players may find it nearly impossible to play this game on consoles if they’re more used to mouse controls, and this is one of the few games that really feel like it benefits from that precision, but that’s a matter of preference.

White Night Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

Take the smooth jazz music that permeates White Night, add in the black and white color palette and a compelling, if somewhat stock, story to create a highly enjoyable experience. Any issues it has are far too minor to allow it to completely ruin an otherwise awesome game that really harkens back to games like Alone in the Dark. It’s rare for any game to leave me completely intimidated but it happened more than once with White Night which means more than any hyperbole ever will. Read More.

Hand of Fate Review

By Nicholas Bale ()

Hand of Fate doesn't seem like it should be fun. Card-based gameplay with text and third-person action combat is something I've simply never heard of before, but it's pulled off exceptionally well here. Adventuring through encounter cards from a deck that you can customize, using equipment from a deck that you can put together, all in bit-size chunks of gameplay that keep you wanting to see what else lies in store - it plays well, and except for some minor technical issues, it's just a lot of fun to flip the next card to see what awaits.

Never Alone Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

Never Alone is a bit of a mixed bag gameplay wise, blending a few really good ideas with some dubious execution, but it’s far from bad. It’s simply a good game with a great, almost storybook, plot and a few noticeable flaws. Read More.

Super Mega Baseball Review

By Nicholas Bale ()

Super Mega Baseball is a game that focuses on fun over reality, but still with its own amount of depth present. Though it falls short in its presentation and variety of modes, it's a fun, simple titleto play that anyone can get into, which exudes character from every part of the game. Read More.

Watch Dogs Hands-on Preview

By Andrew Sztein ()

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.

The Elder Scrolls Online Preview

By Daniel Acaba ()

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.

Talisman Digital Edition Preview

By Daniel Acaba ()

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.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Preview

By Andrew Sztein ()

Ubisoft is on the verge of releasing the latest chapter in their immensely popular Assassin's Creed series, and we were made privy to an impressive hands on demo of the game's PlayStation 4 version at a preview event at the Amsterdam Brewery on Toronto's beautiful waterfront on October 22, 2013.

Dark Souls II Beta Gameplay Journal

By Daniel Acaba ()

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.
