Allow me to be upfront with you for a second.  Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty was a game I had no intention of playing.  It was only through a weird turn of events that I found myself sitting in front of the TV, solving puzzles and jumping from one platform to another. I’ve been totally ignorant of this series until now. So no, I can’t compare this to Oddworld:...

[REVIEW] The Walking Dead: Season Two – Episode 4: Amid The Ruins

on Thu, Jul 24, 2014 | By Tom Acres

Telltale’s take on The Walking Dead has been unrelentingly bleak since its inception, and Amid The Ruins – the penultimate episode of the game’s second season – extends the trend without hesitation. Increasingly dire circumstances, more difficult choices, and an evermore uneasy group dynamic result in Amid The Ruins being one of the most intense...

[REVIEW] Unrest

Unrest by Pyrodactyl
on Wed, Jul 23, 2014 | By Jason Hernandez

A fantasy story unfolding in the often passed over setting of Ancient India, Pyrodactyl’s Unrest is an intriguing adventure that forces you to make decisions that will dramatically transform the characters and their world for better or worse… Or so, that is what I want to say. While proving themselves to have a talent for storytelling and world-building, Unrest...

I’ve had quite the experience with Second Son.  This game was THE reason I bought a PS4....

on Sun, Jul 20, 2014 | By Ian Childs

I’m a non-FPS player who finds myself in the Destiny Beta thanks to a friend at Activision, so have decided to keep a diary of my experience. In Part I I discovered I am a coward who doesn’t like being shot at, which can be a problem in games like this. Nevertheless I summoned up the courage to return to the fray… I logged back in to find my character faithfully...

[FILM REVIEW] Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

on Sat, Jul 19, 2014 | By Tom Acres

2011′s Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a fantastic beginning to a thoughtful re-imagining of a beloved series, but it was also a film that promised a sequel drenched in melancholia. Genetically modified apes had broken out of their cells, humans had begun to be infected by a deadly virus, friendships had been torn apart across both species, and the relationship between...

on Sat, Jul 19, 2014 | By Ryan Oehrli

As I type this review, I’m on a family vacation of sorts.  Due to these circumstances I’ve been separated from my PS4, PS3, and slew of older game consoles.  To make sure I don’t suffer a relapse, I took the time to pack my Game Boy Advance SP and a few games.  Super Mario World, Metroid Fusion, Pokémon Blue, and Kirby’s Dream Land. After playing...
