Xbox One Review: Superhot

superhot xbox review

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.

Xbox One Review: The Division

Division 2

I often start these reviews by pointing out a common trend. Anyone who has read any other review for the Division is probably bracing themselves right now for me to compare this game to Destiny. Let me get that over now. This game is like Destiny. It’s a game run on numbers. It’s also like Assassin’s Creed, sporting the classic …

Xbox One Review: Quantum Break

Quantum Break Review

There are moments of brilliance in Quantum Break, like hitting enemy soldiers with a blast of frozen time and stacking bullets on it to watch it explode, or watching an episode of a streaming TV show that you helped influence, that are absolutely brilliant and feel like the future of video games. Then you’ll come upon an elevator that won’t …
