Some writing fumbles aside I have a the pleasant time with Syndicate. The Assassin's Creed series has had a bit of a bumpy road lately so it's nice to see the games taking a more solid turn again. Even if it doesn't redefine storytelling or even action-adventure gaming in general it's still a fine addition to any gamer's library. With the talk of Ubisoft taking a break from the yearly releases to drop their next game in 2017 instead, it sounds like more effort will be put into making these top-tier games once again. After Syndicate I have to admit that I'm looking forward to it. Read More.
Yakuza 5 brings back characters from previous games, introduces new ones, and shows that even a game of the old generation can flex its muscles these years. Despite an aging combat system, fighting off numerous opponents at once still feels satisfying, and even if fighting off half the population of Tokyo isn't your thing, the massive amount of minigames and substories will be enouhg to keep your interest for days.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is an excellent game but it doesn’t really feel like it excels past the first game in this rebooted series. The original Tomb Raider for the PlayStation 1 laid the groundwork for this whole series only to be blown away by its sequel. Rise of the Tomb Raider doesn’t manage to do this. With all of that said it’s a great game, definitely in league with the previous entry. It’s just hard to shake the feeling that something more could have been done with the gameplay to really set it head and shoulders above its predecessor. It’ll just have to settle for being a great game I suppose. Read More.

If there’s an issue it’s clearly because they tried something fantastic and it only half-succeeded. The overall package for Fallout 4 is one of the first must own titles of the newest console generation. Read More.

Dark fantasy and RPG games are always tons of fun to play, especially when other party members get involved. But add in a bonus of being able to choose from multiple different ones with different stories and add in the possibility that they might stab me in the back and suddenly I'm morbidly intrigued.
