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 …

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 …

Xbox One Review: Transformers: Devastation

transformers devastation review

When I first played PlatinumGames’ Bayonetta back in 2009, my first thought was definitely not that someone needed to make a version of this game with Transformers in it. But apparently I lacked the vision of the good people at Activision and PlatinumGames who saw an opportunity and went for it. Transformers: Devastation is a super slick-looking version of Bayonetta …

Xbox One Review: Batman: Arkham Knight

arkham knight review

Without any hesitation, I can say that Arkham Knight is the best superhero game ever made. That of course makes it the best Batman game ever, and a fine culmination of everything Rocksteady and Warner Bros. have been working toward with the three prior games in the series. But it’s not without it’s flaws. There’s a little too much emphasis …

Basically, if you like video games, ever played a video game, or thought about playing video games, you should stop whatever you’re doing right now and download Rocket League. It’s that good.

Xbox One Review: Elite Dangerous

Elite-boxart

Space and science fiction used to be popular in the nineties. It started long before then, but by the nineties we had multiple Star Trek shows, Star Wars came back, and there were more games like Elite Dangerous than I could count. And then, like Star Trek on TV and Star Wars in the theatres, there came a point in …

Xbox One Review: Dying Light: The Following

Dying Light The Following Review

Dying Light was one of my favorite games of 2015. Sure, the game was a little clunky in some respects, but it also had a perfect mix of survival and action that few zombie games have come close to. It also had some of the best parkour-style gameplay since 2008’s Mirror’s Edge, and a ridiculous amount of upgrade options for …

Xbox One Review: Rainbow Six Siege

R6 Siege 1

The Tom Clancy franchise has been around for decades and even though the man behind the name has long since passed on, his legacy lives still in all the video games and movies released under his brand. The recent film, Jack Ryan, was a bit of a bust, but his games have always been known for quality and that continues …

Xbox One Review: Skylanders SuperChargers

skylanders superchargers review

  Admittedly, I’m not the target demographic for the Skylanders games. I’m almost 32 years-old. I have an advanced degree. The closest thing I have to a kid is my border collie, Prince. Still, I’ve been on board with the toys-to-life genre since Skylanders first hit the market back in 2011. I used to collect a  ton of toys when …
