[Game Review] Craft The World (PC)

In Reviews by Brian HurtadoLeave a Comment

Craft the World joins Minecraft and Terraria as the latest entry in the sandbox building genre that has become so popular lately. The open-endedness of such games seem to draw in a particular crowd, but as more and more of these games come out it’s harder for any one to stand out from the rest. Craft the World, however, manages to add some interesting mechanics …

[Game Review] QP Shooting – Dangerous!! (PC)

In Reviews by Kevin KartanataLeave a Comment

Many genres have seen their genesis on the island nation of Japan, but few can match the chaos of the bullet hell shooter. If you’re unfamiliar with the genre, they are basically old school shmups on steroids. The Japanese term, “Danmaku,” translates to “bullet curtain” due to the sheer amount of bullets that can be on-screen at once. They’re actually …

[Game Review] Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- (PS3)

In PS3, PS4, Reviews by Davis FanLeave a Comment

This game took so long I almost didn’t think it would happen. After Guilty Gear XX Accent Core, I almost didn’t think I’d ever get my hands on another Guilty Gear with all the other fighting games that Arc System Works has been putting out. Now that it’s out, I couldn’t be more excited, though with the direction that fighting …

[Game Review] Instant Dungeon! (PC)

In PC, Reviews, Vita by Chris RamosLeave a Comment

Instant Dungeon is a single-player 2D dungeon exploration game made by With The Love Studios. The game does not really have much of a story other than just simply wandering around dungeons and escaping. It’s simple as that but can definitely test one’s patience on how far they can keep playing the game.

[Game Review] Far Cry 4 Review (PC)

In 360, PC, PS3, PS4, Reviews, Xbox One by Grant MikuriyaLeave a Comment

Another year, another triple-A title. While Ubisoft hasn’t treated the game like a cash cow like it has Assassin’s Creed, it has fallen prey to their cookie-cutter format of adventure games chock-full of unnecessary yet helpful side content. Fortunately, it has kept true to its main draw which is an FPS-meets-Survivorman gameplay, thankfully without having to drink your own piss.

The war game has been a constant fixture in video games since the medium’s inception, and, as evidenced by the annual parade of military shooters we’ve been experiencing for the past half-decade or so, it’s clear that video games are a culture in love with the idea of war. When confronted with the realities of war however, games are all …

Hyrule Warriors‘ isn’t a canon Legend of Zelda game, but a spin-off developed by Team Ninja, the studio behind Dead or Alive and the Ninja Gaiden series and Omega Force, creators of the Dynasty Warriors series.

[Game Review] Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 (PC)

In Reviews by Kevin KartanataLeave a Comment

Coming straight out of left field, Five Nights at Freddy’s was an excellent entry to a genre that I feel has gotten very stale very quickly. A look at most horror games now reveals a lot of shoddy stealth mechanics, uninspired art direction, and terribly predictable AI. Five Nights at Freddy’s did away with all that, with its crude mid-90s …
