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.

Alien: Isolation Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

These issues with the game, that of frustrating segments, uneven difficulty and plastic characters, are really all more technical hiccups than huge issues. So long as you can deal with a few areas of frustration the rest of the experience is definitely worth the money for one of the finest horror games ever released. Alien: Isolation lives up to its potential and then some. Read More.

The Evil Within Review

By Nicholas Bale ()

The Evil Within, the latest project by Resident Evil 4 creator Shinji Mikami, is something of a mix of different styles of gameplay that never really knows what it wants to be. The story is all over the place, the environments shift arbitrarily, and it's hard to feel connected with any of the characters. Despite this, the moment-to-moment gameplay is quite good, and aided by an upgrade system that makes exploration and taking out enemies rewarding. Certainly flawed, but still an interesting experience to go through. Read More.

Destiny Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

The problem that Destiny suffers is the proverbial death of a thousand cuts. Every time you look at a feature in the game there’s a small problem with it that the developers may have put in because they felt it served a purpose in their game world but it only inhibits the experience. To be blunt, Destiny is a game with high production values but absolutely nothing else. Read More.

Enforcer: Police Crime Action Review

By Naomi Brown ()

Real cops don’t get to be television cops most of the time, and this game really brings the point home. Traffic stops and checking for drunks is a huge part of the experience here – be ready for some repetition. Read More.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

This collection is all about one thing - a whole lot of content for your money. You get four games worth of content with some new additions and tweaks to make long-time fans happy and to ensure that new fans, looking to experience the original games, have plenty to enjoy. Honestly it's only the lack of changes for Halo 3 and a few minor issues that hold this package back from being a definitive, must own and even that's a small issue most won't find any problems with.

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.
