A Vacation Cut Short 0

I had no frame of reference for what to expect from Far Cry 3, having never played the previous entries in the franchise. Like several series that were off my radar before it, the hype surrounding Far Cry 3 in late 2012 was too much to ignore. Claims of “Skyrim with guns” from the game’s marketing were enough for me to take a chance on it.

Enter XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a superb turn-based strategy game by Firaxis.To point out, I...

You Shouldn't Have Worn a Red Coat Today 0

My expectations for Assassin’s Creed 3 were very high. A few shorts months ago I was trudging through Assassin’s Creed Revelations; the last entry in the main Assassin’s Creed franchise to deal with Ezio Auditore. Revelations gave an interesting closure to the characters of Ezio and Altair, but the familiarity of the experience wore on me. The promise of a new numbered entry in the series gave me the push I needed to complete it for the sake of story. Assassins’ Creed 3 places the player in the ...
