Review - Etrian Odyssey IV

etrian odyssey iv legends of the titan boxart 

Etrian Odyssey seems to me like a series with a somewhat scary reputation, and for those of you that have experienced a Etrian Odyssey game before you probably already know what I mean by that but for those that do not know the game is notoriously known for its difficulty level and the somewhat hard grind to the top. But then again, why should the game be easy and just give you everything you wanted without even trying? That is not what gaming used to be about and even though Etrian Odyssey IV certainly have toned down the difficulty level it is still a game that demands you pay attention, learn the tactics and basics and you still need to grind your way to the top but that is why Etrian Odyssey IV is one of the best RPG experiences on the 3DS at the moment.


Review - Tales of Xillia

tales-of-xillia-america-boxart 610

The Tales series first started back in 1995 with the release of Tales of Phantasia, since then the game series have seen fourteen games released in the series but it might sound weird when I tell you that this is the review for the 13th game in the series, why? Because Tales of Xillia finally comes to the western market after a 2 year delay and while Tales of Xillia 2 have been released in Japan we have still not managed to get it over here but it is scheduled to arrive sometime during 2014, but this is the review of Tales of Xillia for the Playstation 3.


Review - Charlie Murder


How many games have you played that is all about punk, anything? No? Well have no fear fellow punks, our calling is here and it's name is Charlie Murder


Review - Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

Brothers TaleOfTwoSons

Summer of Arcade is upon us and boy does it start off with a bang, I am trying to withhold the excitement I have about this game so that you can read my review, but wow... Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is something else.


Review - Dragon's Crown


Dragon's Crown got a lot of slack when it was first announced, mainly because of the way the characters are fleshed out, literally fleshed out. There was an outbreak, there was a riot starting in every country within hours, cars was flipped, buildings was trashed, and then we all realized that this is a video game, and we all felt pretty bad about ourself, forgave the characters and opened up to this delicious piece of 2D Beat 'Em Up that is Dragon's Crown.


Review - Civilization V: Brave New World


Civilization V is still adding features to its already incredible deep and huge game, this time it comes in the form of another add-on which is called a Brave New World, and me as a huge follower and fanatic of the series since it first released way back when, was eager to spend yet another 20+ hours in the world of Civilization V, but can more become too much?


Review - Dynasty Warriors 8

Dynasty-Warriors-8 2013 04-03-13 038.jpg 600

Dynasty Warriors is one of those games that you either love or you really don't know anything about the games, but chances are you have at least heard of the franchise that has now managed to get 7 games released in the series and we got the 8 one ready to be reviewed, and we took our sweet time with it too. The question is, how can something stay relevant after this many releases, it can't can it?


Review - Company of Heroes 2


Is it true? Has it really been seven years since the release of Company of Heroes? Time really does fly by because I still can remember the incredible amount of hours I have spent playing that game, and now I have been taking my sweet time enjoying the new CoH game, Company of Heroes 2 and seven years later I still enjoy the follow up just as much if not more.


Review - Deadpool


I don’t know much about comics, I read some comics but I am not the biggest DC or Marvel fan out there, but I have followed one character since its humble beginning and that is the Merc with the Mouth, Deadpool. And he have finally broken through and talked loud enough for someone to pick up on just how well this character can do a game and it is finally time to get to play around with Deadpool, no pun intended.


Review - Le Tour de France 2013


Le Tour de France 2013 100th Edition gives fans of the cycling sport a chance once again to jump into the mix and take control of their favourite team and hail them to victory, the problem is that if you are not a dedicated cycling sport fanatic chances are you are not going to know even where to begin with this game, however if you are it is all at your fingertips.


Review - The Last of Us


The Last of Us is a fresh new game from Naughty Dog, the creators of such games as Uncharted, Jak & Daxter and Crash Bandicoot to name the most known, and if you have played one of those games you already know that ND make great and entertaining games, but you still haven't tried out the latest game they made called The Last of Us? Shame on you!


Review - Remember Me


The future is a thing within the gaming industry that is usually exploited in favour of us as gamers. Since the early days of gaming we have gotten to experience the future before anyone else, same thing with the movie industry, the future can be scary simply because it is something completely new and when you make a game within this category you are basically free to do whatever you want simply because nobody knows what the future hold. But how about if you had the ability to only keep your good memories and remove all the bad once? Would you do it or would you want to find out what is really going on by setting yourself up against the powers that be and try to reclaim what is rightfully yours, your memory. This is what Remember Me takes a stab at.


Review - Journey the Collector's Edition


I still remember the feeling I was left with when I first finished Journey the day it released. That feeling of accomplishment without really knowing what I accomplished or who I accomplished it with, but I knew there was something about that game that would stick with me for a very long time, and it has. And it is time to once again venture into this beautiful land with the release of Journey – The Collector’s Edition, which also includes Flower and Flow.


Review - The Night of the Rabbit


When I first really got into games, after I started my adventure with the classic platform games I quickly turned to adventure games. The sense of exploration and the way you could finish a game without just pressing random buttons but actually using your brainpower was like nothing I had ever experienced before, classic games such as Monkey Island, Loom, Full Throttle, The Dig, Simon the Sorcerer etc. had me hooked to what became my favourite genre of all time. But as time progressed this genre suddenly disappear of every developers radar and was exchanged with shooters and action games. But luckily lately this trend have changed with more “indie” developers getting the chance to show what they can do with this beautiful but somewhat forgotten genre, and this is where The Night of the Rabbit comes in to play.


Review - Fuse


Any gamers who have owned or currently own a PlayStation the name Insomniac Games should ring a few bells, with a backlog of a few of the most iconic characters to ever grace the console such as Spyro and Ratchet & Clank it is safe to say that Insomniac Games knows how to make not only classical characters but also classic games. However Fuse is something completely new from the developers and it also goes to show that when something ain't broke, don't fix it.


Review - Resident Evil: Revelations


If you have been playing games for more than a couple of years you will know the name Resident Evil by now, and you might also hold the name dear as one or more of the games released might be on your top games of all time list. However over the last couple of years the franchise have taken a turn for the “worse” with all the hate the last release got, but that is water under the bridge now as we get to head back into the RE universe with the release of Resident Evil: Revelations.


Review - Grid 2


If you love racing games chances are you already own a copy of Race Driver: Grid, or just Grid as it is mostly known, the game was published and developed by long time game developers Codemasters that stems back all the way to the middle of the 80s. But things have changed since then and the racing game genre have become over-flooded with different titles all competing for the number one spot, so how will Codemasters latest release Grid 2 rack up against its powerful competitors? We get to play around in Grid 2 to find out.


Review - Gunslinger


Call of Juarez is a franchise i have followed since the first release, however the series have never managed to capture me and the last game nailed the final nail in the coffin for me as far as excitement for the series. But when i first got word of a new COJ release and this time it was schedule as an arcade title instead of a budget release it got me excited again, although i wasn't convinced since the series had burned me earlier but i wanted to try it out at least before i passed my judgment on the game. And boy am i glad i did because this is by far, believe it or not, the best game in the entire series! 


Review - The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing

VanHelsing CoverArt

The Incredible Adventure of Van Helsing is on paper nothing new to an already swamped open world RPG but still with so much nods and winks to other games such as Torchlight and Diablo, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing still manages to somehow keep my attention and keep me entertained throughout the entire experience, which is great news for all of you because I can recommend yet another open world action RPG to you.
