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.

Stick it to the Man Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

A game that tries to be funny, like Stick it to the Man does, is only enjoyable if the jokes are good and the delivery stands up. Since the delivery is almost invariably an annoyance it doesn’t matter how good the jokes are. Pair that up with the gameplay worlds being far wider and open than they need to be and tack on repetitive gameplay and all you’ll find here is a whole lot of boredom. Read More.

Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Review

By Nicholas Bale ()

Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright come from two different games that should blend pretty well together - mixing the exploratory, puzzle-solving nature of the good professor with the objection-flinging, contradiction-hunting court battles of an ace attorney seems like a no-brainer. The result is a game that is sure to appeal to fans of both of the series, but with a distinct feeling that the two styles of gameplay could have been less segregated, even though the result is a satisfying blend of puzzles, intrigue, and mysteries to solve.

EA Sports UFC Review

By Matthew Pollesel ()

EA Sports UFC may look like the evolution of sports fighting, but when it comes to gameplay, it's all just a bunch of sweaty guys rolling around on the ground. Read More.

The Walking Dead Season 2: No Going Back Review

By Naomi Brown ()

This is a disapointing end for a long, tedious journey with Clementine and her supporting cast. And frankly, as sad as it is, we can't help but be a little happy to see this season finally limp to it's unfortunate ending. As much fun as we've had over the course of the series, it's just gotten to the point where the entire depressing series is almost too depressing for it's own good and we've been left with very little to care about or hope for in any kind of upcoming sequel.

Indie Spotlight: Super Time Force Review

By Daniel Acaba ()

One would think that a game like Super Time Force, with its quirky mechanics and interesting story would hold my attention but I honestly found every minute of playing the game incredibly boring. I can’t losing interest in the game to the point that this review is so late because I couldn’t play long enough to actually get a good enough grip on the game to actually review it. This is literally the first time I’ve had a game do that to me so I guess that’s something. 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.
