Skyrim Hearthfire DLC, or Skyrim Cribs

Bethesda finally says “I love you” to all the pack rats and completionists of Skyrim with Hearthfire. This content-over-quest DLC pack gives you all the space you need to store your goodies while offering you slight (keyword) customization of how your home looks. I say slight because the final product of each wing/room always looks […]

Tekken Tag Tournament 2, A Velociraptor With Boxing Gloves

I… I’ve played as a dinosaur in a fighting game. LIFE: COMPLETE. Anyhoo. Just because a fighting game has a huge roster of characters doesn’t necessarily make it a good game. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is the exception to that rule, for the most part. I say “for the most part” because making a perfect […]

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, Misery Requires Company

As it turns out, I managed to find a couch buddy for Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, and thanks to that, I managed to worm my way further into the game. I’ve got some good news and bad news, most of which relates to the gameplay mechanics. The rest of the bad news is for you […]

So let’s get on […]

Dark Souls – Artorias of the Abyss Part 1

What’s that? You want me to review the Dark Souls Artorias of the Abyss DLC without blowing my own and possible your mind? Psh, as if. This fifteen dollar installment comes from a game developer who never thought he’d make DLC for his beloved Soul Series. Now that he has, he wants to make sure […]

Borderlands 2 is Even More Borderlandsy

It’s been a while since I actually played Borderlands the first, and I didn’t bother with the DLC, so don’t expect many comparisons aside from the usual shit. The usual shit in this context means upgraded visuals, skill trees, user interface, firearm diversity, and even banter. Yes, there was a banter upgrade from Borderlands 1 […]

Soul Calibur V Micro-Transaction Crap

There’s a fine line between reviewing a video game and complaining about something that the developers are doing that bothers me. And you know what? Consider that line crossed. I have some rather nasty things to say about the Soul Calibur V marketing team’s plan to make you pay $120 for their game as opposed […]
