Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Gives the Boot to Bad Loot

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

At first, I didn’t think I’d buy the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion. Forty bucks is a hell of a lot of bread to dish out for an extra Act and a free-roam mode. Or… is it? As I’ve been saying to my dubious Diablo comrades, they’d be paying twenty dollars for the Crusader, […]

The Dragon’s Crown Crew

Dragon's Crown

It’s about damn time I reviewed Dragon’s Crown in all of its side-scrolling beat-em-up glory. The, ah, controversy surrounding the art style is hardly as fun as playing the damn game. I’m certain I’m not alone in saying that Vanillaware is the video game company that you can trust in this modern age of shitty […]

The Ups and Downs of Warframe

Warframe

Now that I’ve played Warframe a lot more, I’ve gained some insight into the structure of the game and the means by which it acquires revenue. While I am most likely going to rant a fair bit about certain aspects, keep in mind that Warframe is still in open beta, thus subject to sudden content […]

Saints Row IV, Now We’re Talkin’!

Saints Row IV

Now, I’m not sure how many of you even vaguely desired a return to the Saints Row series after the Third came out. It certainly lacked the raw customization glory that the second yielded, favoring zanier missions and weirder plot. All the same, the desire to remain tame caused it to come off as a […]

Dragon’s Crown, Complainer Disclaimer

Dragon's Crown

I would have loved to make my first review of Dragon’s Crown a gleaming article full of praise and nuance, but it looks like I’m going to have to break down the game’s art style so all you super sensitive types can get past the box art and actually enjoy the damn game. If you’re […]

BioShock Infinite Take Two, Complaints and Combat

Bioshock Infinite

Forewarning: This isn’t so much a review as it is a mish-mash of thoughts, combat overview doodads, and partially relevant hints. Hopefully you’ll learn something useful. I’ve read a lot of heavy criticism regarding the high level of violence in BioShock Infinite. Some believe that it distracts from the game’s complex and meaningful story. The […]

Bioshock Infinite Redefines Reality

Bioshock Infinite

Yes. This game redefines reality. After you play it, everything in the universe changes and yet you aren’t aware of it because you too are altered. Deep, huh? There’s a certain ironic nuance between Bioshock Infinite and its two precursors. Where the first two are linked directly and bound to the same in-game universe, Bioshock […]

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, ALL the Familiars

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

If you like Hayao Miyazaki movies and video games, I’m about to BLOW YOUR FREAKIN’ MIND. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is the new Studio Ghibi piece that most everyone is going to want to get. It’s a nostalgic adventure RPG with a familiar collection system reminiscent of Pokemon. The plot is […]

Skyrim Dragonborn DLC, Now with Tentacles

Skyrim Dragonborn

Before I bequeath to you my knowledge of the Skyrim Dragonborn DLC, I present to you an image. Imagine, if you will, an obelisk surrounded by NPCs stuck in the “animation not found” Jesus Christ on an invisible cross position, their mouths moving as they speak in droning voices about how their “idle hands will […]

Guild Wars 2, Online Gaming is… Fun?!

Guild Wars 2

Once upon a time, I heard that Guild Wars 2 would change the way MMORPGs work forever. Me being me, I took the sarcastic approach and said, “Psh, sure, like they can make an MMO that’s actually consistently entertaining.” Secretly drawn by the frail hope of finally discovering a good MMO, I decided to buy […]
