Fire Emblem Warriors | Review

In 2014,  Hyrule Warriors was released by Koei Tecmo, Ninja Theory and Omega Force. These developers had a novel idea, to combine Dynasty Warriors and The Legend of Zelda. It was a beautiful game that got better than average critical reception and was a unique use of both the combat style of Dynasty Warriors and the characters and world of Legend of Zelda. It is now 2017 and it has brought with it a new entry into...

88 Heroes: 98 Heroes Edition | Review

On August 8th, 1988 at 8:08 am I was but an infant when one of the most terrible acts of evil was attempted.

In order to save mankind from destruction by nuclear warhead, we needed the help of the brave, the bold, and the silly 88 heroes! This is the set up for...

NBA Playgrounds | Review

When I was young, I played quite a bit of sports games. I especially favored the NES and SNES sports games. I have fond memories of Tecmo Bowl, Excitebike, Punch Out, Super Tennis and of course NBA Jam. Ever since then, I have fallen out of favor with sports games and mostly thought it would be a genre I wouldn’t be inclined to return to. What a surprise to me that when I played NBA Playgrounds for...

Monster Hunter Stories | Review

“When a monster strikes, the fearful hide, but the brave? They ride” So goes what should be the motto of all Hunters, young and old. Long time fans of the beloved Capcom franchise, Monster Hunter, might have been fearful at the idea  of the spin-off “Monster Hunter Stories” when first discovered it would be a fairly large departure from the typical Monster Hunter game they have all come to know and love, but what of those who...

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle | Review

When Ubisoft and Nintendo decided they wanted to join forces to create a mashup of two great franchises, both had some great characters to chose from. The most obvious choice of franchise from Ubisoft would have to be the Rayman franchise and Nintendo could never go wrong using Mario to contribute to a game. One might think Ubisoft would use Rayman himself to team up with Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom crew and also his colorful friends...

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice | Review

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has made quite the splash in the gaming scene as of recently. It is the indie game with the AAA quality looking to make a point to publishers, that it can be done without the AAA publishers sticking their fingers in the pie. Ninja Theory has labeled this game as the “independent AAA” game because of its focus on their strengths of strong character story, combat, and unique art style. They wanted to take...

Miitopia | Review

Since the beginning of story telling, tales have been told about brave warriors combating and defeating the forces of evil. From Greek myths to comic book heroes, the concept of heroes banding together has been done in many different ways, inspiring the audience’s imagination and creating fantasies of themselves as one of those brave heroes. As video games grew and matured as a medium, people could now go from simply hearing, seeing or reading stories of brave...

Walking Dead: The Tell Tale Series- A New Frontier episode 5: From the Gallows review

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier has finally concluded and closed out Season three of the Telltale Walking Dead series. The fifth episode, From The Gallows, closes the story of Javier and his time with Clementine. While the Walking Dead episodes have been mostly good so far, how will the end hold up? With this season end with a whimper, or a bang? And what could this ending mean for future seasons?   This episode does answer...

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 | Review

I am not the biggest expert in first person shooter games, even tactical shooters, especially ones that are in a realistic setting. I do not play Call of Duty regularly, EA’s Battlefield or other games of the like, so when I was shown Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 (brought to us by CI Games) for review,  I knew this would be slightly out of my normal comfort zone. I am, however, not afraid to explore outside of my usual...

Puyo Puyo Tetris | REVIEW

One staple in video games that seems to carry over generation after generation is Tetris. Most people know about this game and most have played it at some point in their life. You would be hard pressed to find someone who has never come across this game at some point in their life. Another series of puzzle tile games that many have come across in some form is Puyo Puyo. If you have played Doctor Mario, you...

Walking Dead: A New Frontier- Episode 4 “Thicker Than Water” | Review

There is one issue I find with the episodic format for games, and that is also the same problem I have with television episodes as well; sometimes you get episodes that are just bridges to bigger idea or moment instead of entertaining moments in and of themselves and leave you feeling a little less than fulfilled, yet still wanting more because of the implications of what’s to come. As the penultimate episode of The Walking Dead: A...

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard | Review

Hack and slash games have been a favorite genre of game of mine for a long time. From Devil May Cry to God of War, they are full of adrenaline-fueled excitement and of course, plenty of action and enemies to slay. The newest to the genre is Vikings: Wolves of Midgard and while this may seem like a Diablo clone ready to be forgotten by time, there is a charm and fun to this game that should...
