March 28, 2016 0

Back in December, when I first previewed Battlefleet Gothic, I was hesitant to get overly excited about the game. Games Workshop, the company who owns the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 IP’s, is notoriously bad at choosing game developers and I wasn’t convinced that Tindalos Interactive’s Battlefleet Gothic: Armada would buck […]

Hitman Beta

February 19, 2016 3

Disclaimer: This beta was enjoyed on PC. Minor spoilers ahead. Today, I got the opportunity to play through Io Interactive’s Hitman beta.

Unravel Review

February 11, 2016 2

I had very high hopes for Unravel. It had all the promise of a unique, indie game crafted with passion. The game’s character, Yarny, looked cute and the story was supposed to be filled with meaning. As much as I enjoy the action of FPS titles, the challenge of strategy […]

February 2, 2016 0

Where have all the racing titles gone? With the exception of Forza and Gran Turismo, the racing genre has been relatively quiet for what seems like, or feels like, too long. Perhaps it’s merely been drowned out by other genres and the sea of headlining games they have brought into […]

Video Games May Boost Sibling Relationships

January 20, 2016 1

When you start out as a young gamer, most of the time your first co-op partner is your sibling. They are your greatest ally, enemy and rival – depending on the game you’re playing. Even though I’ve professed on many occasions that I’m not a huge fan of co-op play, […]
