Microsoft E3 2016 – Xbox Conference Rundown

Halo-Wars-2-trailer-battle

There is only one event every year that geeks hold their breath the entire year round waiting for. And that’s Comic Con. Okay, and maybe Blizzcon, Penny Arcade Expo, Game Developers conference, and more. I’m sorry, did I say one event a year? The impact E3 makes on gaming seems to be growing smaller (some would call that shrinking) , …

Xbox One Review: Battleborn

battleborn review

It’s hard to not feel a little sad for Battleborn. The developers at Gearbox have clearly put a lot of work into the game, and there’s a lot of fun to be had with it, but being a hero shooter and releasing just two weeks before Blizzard’s hotly-anticipated Overwatch is not a good spot to be in. Battleborn may ultimately …

Xbox One Review: Doom

doom xbox one review

I grew up in the ’90s when fast-paced shooters like Doom, Quake, and Unreal were king. I put countless hours into the many campaigns of the old Doom games (even the underrated Doom 64) and then had my first deathmatch experiences in Quake and Unreal Tournament.

Gaming has been so completely oversaturated by first-person shooters  over the past two decades that it’s hard to imagine that there’s any room left for innovation. Fast-paced shooters. Slow-paced, methodical shooters. FPSs with parkour and RPG elements. It seems like it’s all been done. The last time there was something truly different in the field was when Valve released Portal, …

5 Xbox One Games We Want to See at E3 2016

Xbox E3

E3 is like Christmas for gamers. Maybe we don’t actually get anything that day (unless we’re lucky enough to attend), but after months of hoping and wishing, we at least find out what we’ll be playing for the rest of the year. The announcements at E3 can be enough to make grown men weep, or can nearly sink a console. …

Xbox One Review: Dark Souls III

Dark Souls III Review

I’m not really a fan of difficult games. That doesn’t mean that I enjoy a cake walk like Yoshi’s Story (one of the worst and easiest games I’ve ever played). I like a bit of a challenge. Games like the recent Quantum Break or Halo 5 are challenging games with great difficulty curves that I really enjoyed. But if I …
