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 …

Xbox One Beta Impressions: Doom

Then you’ll come upon an elevator that won’t …

Xbox One Review: Need for Speed

Need for Speed Review

Way back in 2003, EA reinvigorated the Need for Speed series and turned it into one of its biggest yearly franchises with the release of Need for Speed Underground. Focusing on tuner culture, it was one of the first racing games that let you fully customize your car. And boy did that game ever have style, from the blur effect …

Xbox One Review: Marvel Puzzle Quest

MPQ FEature

Full-disclosure: I had a major addiction to the original Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords when it hit the Xbox 360 back in 2007. I probably lost a good two months of my life to scouring the whole map, reaching the maximum level with my warrior and beating every last enemy, plus the Revenge of the Plague Lord DLC. But …
