Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Review (PC)

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Come to the Land Up-Over Let’s get this out of the way: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is really Australian. Not just in the accents– the characterization, humor, terminology — it’s made very clear from the get-go that 2K Australia wanted to leave their mark on the Borderlands franchise. Taking place after Borderlands (but before Borderlands 2, hence “pre-sequel”), The Pre-Sequel fills in ...

  Fun For Few Disney Infinity was not made for me to enjoy at a fundamental level. It’s a game designed to be enjoyable for younger children, and in that respect it’s plenty apparent it succeeds. Bringing the universe of Disney characters together (and now with version 2.0, Marvel) is ...

Styx: Master of Shadows Review

STYX1

Its been a tough time for newly released stealth games as of late. You’ll be hard pressed to read reviews that don’t compare these games to Assassin’s Creed, or at least pick out specific elements and abruptly state Assassin’s Creed “already did it”. Which is why I was pleased to ...

Chariot Review (Xbox One)

Chariot Title Screen

To describe the genre of platformers, I would start with some of the games that gave many of today’s gamers hours of fun and frustration.
