Door Kickers Review (PC)

“Good Copy!” In the back of my mind, I’ve always fantasized about being part of a SWAT team. It’s the sense of immense camaraderie and unwavering synchronization that I’ve always romanticized. There’s just something about clearing rooms like a well-oiled machine with the sole purpose of getting everybody home safe ...

MX Vs. ATV: Supercross Review (360)

MX_VS_ATV_Supercross4-gamezone

I slide into a corner, leaning my bike and body through the turn, kicking up a whole bunch of dirt with three riders on either side of me. The final jump is just ahead and the three of  us are neck-and-neck. I am sweating it out to see if I am going ...

Alien: Isolation Review (Xbox One)

Alien-Isolation-Game

It’s been 35 years since Ridley Scott and Dan O’Bannon brought the movie Alien to the big screen with the tag line “In space, no one can hear you scream.” A movie many call a masterpiece, as well as a staple of the sci-fi. Told a conflicting story where the the polish and color ...

Wasteland 2 Review (PC)

Set the World Afire Twenty-six years is a long time to wait for between entries in a series. Frankly, if you’ve been waiting for a sequel to the 1988 PC DOS RPG Wasteland, you’re old enough to be one of my parents. A young parent, but a parent nonetheless. Developed by inXile ...

Shadowrun: Dragonfall – Director’s Cut Review (PC)

Decking it Cyberpunk I’ve always had a misguided idea of what Shadowrun was. It wasn’t up until a year ago that I became interested in tabletop gaming and pen-and-paper RPGs. My only prior experience with the series was with the 2007 competitive shooter, a game that staunchly misrepresents that world and its ...

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 ...

Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes Review (PS3)

  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 ...
