Another year and more titles passed us by along with the days of 2013. It was filled with sadness, happiness, and times to remember that have marked many more good days to come for many of us. For gamers worldwide, it was a year in which not many games were released, but a few notable titles were profoundly worthy of mention. It is with pleasure that we provide the millions of anticipated readers ...[Read More]
We asked the team just a few more questions left unanswered and a ton of comparison shots right from the studio. After the jump, ye scurvy sailor!
We caught up with the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag team in a world exclusive interview detailing the exact differences between current gen and next-gen. Many people have e-mailed us wanting to know exactly what they are, and we have delivered. Interview after the break! (Video Demo included)
The rustles rise beneath while the sea splash slowly rises, giving room to the protruding smell of fish and the wafts of seabreeze air against the half-open nostrils of Edward Kenway, the most ruthless assassin first and pirate second of the early 18th century. The gameplay covers many elements in the beautiful vistas of the jungles and desolate island shrubbery scattered across the world, with eq...[Read More]
A winged dark-robed figure approaches a thug at night and swoops down and rampages him to the ground. This is Batman: Arkham Origins, crafted by Warner Bros. Montreal, which takes The Dark Knight to a familiar territory of gameplay and invigorates it with a brand new larger environment and multiplayer predator mode. Batman: Arkham Origins sticks very closely to the old formula that its predecessor...[Read More]
NBA 2K14 does very little to earn its money other than updating rosters to August 3rd, 2013 and adding some minor improvements over NBA 2K13, all of which insurmountably accounts to very little. 2K Sports have quite possibly outdone their previous installment’s mediocrity in this new title and created a basketball game that has essentially convinced a gullible audience to keep shelving out m...[Read More]
Sam Fisher is reborn in Splinter Cell: Blacklist – invigorating a new birth to the stealth franchise. The action is rampant, the dialogue and scenery are at a high, and the game mechanics remain nostalgic to the fun of pre-Conviction days. While the action is certainly up on a high scale in Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the elements of the Blacklist threat in terms of the mission structure remains loo...[Read More]
The clouds are piercing the morning air with their incandescent colors, as my lungs fill up with the sweet rubescent scent of the morning air over Columbia’s horizon. This is BioShock Infinite, a title which brings a fantastical world alive in the sky similar to Laputa: Castle In The Sky. BioShock Infinite shatters a new ground-breaking reality in terms of storyline atmosphere that is remini...[Read More]
Injustice: Gods Among Us is a decent fighting title from WB Games and NetherRealm Studios, but largely fails to hold much value in terms of storyline pacing. In terms of fighting mechanics, Injustice: Gods Among Us presents some environmental elements which are unique, but largely a gameplay structure which lacks a lot of originality. Injustice: Gods Among Us feels more like a let down from the Go...[Read More]
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance takes a different spin on the Metal Gear franchise by making a decided move away from stealth that is welcoming. While nostalgic fans of the franchise may be looking for the stealth crouching shadow-kills from Metal Gear Solid 4: Sons of the Patriots, Raiden keeps a decidedly new persona of ruthless vengeance as the title implies. Action combat is fierce, and while t...[Read More]
Gears of War: Judgment is a decent prequel title to the original Gears of War franchise, and serves to go in-depth with Kilo Squad on Emergence Day. The gameplay structure is definitely more different than immersive combat qualities, but there still remains a Gears of War feel to this new style of shooter.
Crysis 3 is a technical acheivement that reinvigorates life and sees a medley blend between the second and first titles. Crysis 3 takes the open-world adventure exploration of Crysis, and takes a blend of linear pathism from Crysis 2 to create something that is surprisingly in the midpoint of these two titles. While old-time fans of the series would have preferred a more open-world Crysis, Crysis ...[Read More]
