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.

Forza Horizon 2 Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

I’m going to stand by the assessment that Forza is the best damn racing series out there and Horizon 2 continues that fine tradition while also trying to expand on it. The developers have mixed the core simulation gameplay of Forza has been finely blended with the open world of Test Drive Unlimited and the more chaotic elements of Project Gotham Racing and Burnout, making for an incredibly satisfying game.

The Last Door Review

By Nicholas Bale ()

Despite a few weird puzzles and some bland writing, The Last Door does a good job of presenting a story straight out of Lovecraft's books, using its graphical style and some good sound design to its benefit, creating a point-and-click adventure game capable of making players jump. Read More.

Quest for Infamy Review

By Naomi Brown ()

Quest for Infamy is a callback to some of the best and worst things about classic adventure games -- although it was fun to take the journey back to those nostalgic times with our irrepresible and incorragible antihero Roehm. His wisecracking antics were amusing enough to get me through most of the annoyances and missteps of the game, though it was a close call in some cases. Read More.

Indie Spotlight: Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut is for a very specific sort of person. It’s hard to truly recommend it to anyone who isn’t already a fan of space shooters since being an arcade style space shooter is its entire appeal. It’s almost like a throwback to games past which is great if you loved them before, not so much if you’ve never been interested in them. But if you are a fan then you should almost definitely play it since it has a lot to recommend. It’s just not likely to make many converts. Read More.

Metro Redux Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

If you’re going to pick up just one of these games by purchasing them digitally then you’ll want to pick up Metro 2033 Redux. While I still feel that the first game holds up fine, in regards to gameplay and graphics, the improvements made to the game in Redux just blow the original out the water. The higher difficulty, the increased tension that comes with it and the improved graphics really make the game so much better. 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.
