A lot has been said about Bioshock Infinite since its release, and I’m acutely aware of the difficulty of contributing a unique perspective on the game’s merits to the cacophony of other opinions singing its praises. So perhaps the best way I can preface my thoughts about Infinite is to say that when I was…

In attempting to reboot the series and re-imagine its famed protagonist’s origin story, Crystal Dynamics has chosen to tackle the unenviable challenge of redefining the storied and revered Tomb Raider series. It is undoubtedly a well timed and much needed reinvention though. Recent offerings from the franchise have exhibited an unmistakable creative exhaustion which threatened…

(The game was reviewed using Version 1.0.1185.0) Tribes: Ascend is the latest successor to the long-running Tribes series, whose relative obscurity means that most people (including myself) will not be even remotely familiar with it. Nonetheless, this free-to-play game, and the radical innovations which differentiate it from its competition in the conventional multiplayer shooter market,…

To say that the last few years have been tough for Mega Man fans would be a vast understatement. Between game cancellations, the departure of series father Kenji Inafune, a lack of any new content outside of iOS releases that nobody wanted and the blue bomber being excluded from huge crossover titles despite a swell…

Bonjour, Guten Tag and Konichwa bitches, unwrap my delightful, multicultural Xcom review, choking hazard.

Doom 3: BFG Edition’s most critically detrimental problem is that, being re-released eight or so years after its first go around, the things which seemed at least fairly new when first experienced back then now only seem like the tired tropes they’ve since manifestly become. The game has, as a product of its age, lost…
