Mortal Kombat X moves forward with a snappier version of the previous game's fighting and some cool new characters, but the story and other features around the edges feel a bit rough in spots.
The ways that Axiom Verge resembles Metroid help set up and drive home the ways that Axiom Verge is most definitely not Metroid.
Hotline Miami's thrillingly brutal gameplay is stretched to the point of breaking in this aesthetically pleasing, but otherwise disappointing sequel.
Perfect Strangers. Took me a while to dredge that one up!
I'm in! If you're looking for something to tide you over on xbox one, check out Sixty Second Shooter Prime. Enjoyable.
A shame that this game didn't sell, but not surprising. Looks pretty great though, Swery is the man!
a little early to claim a sales defeat
Digital distribution will save single player as an economically viable game type.
I have spoken.
"If you already don't like (or have, at some point in the past, liked) games like Call of Duty, there's a very good chance that Titanfall will hold zero appeal for you."
I have to disagree with Jeff on this one. I don't like Call of Duty, but I've really been enjoying Titanfall. It is FUN. I actually think it was specifically designed to appeal to those who like Call of Duty type FPSs while at the same time appealing to the more casual gamer who can take or leave an FPS. Respawn managed to nail that cross-over appeal. I'm not describing this too well. If interested, check out Tina Amini's review over on Kataku. She does a much better job of describing why it appeals to me, and why it might appeal to you if you're still on the fence.
Now I feel like I need to go finish Dark Souls
"Ryse is a ton of fun" - You speak the truth Dave Lang. Not groundbreaking or mind-blowing, but good bloody fun! Worth playing.
World of Tanks beta has been great on 360! But then again, I'm an old man... :)
I'm a few hours into Forza 5 - it's very, very good. It looks amazing and the driving is better than any other Forza game I've played (3,4 & Horizon).
But.... what I really want is a new xbox one Horizon game :) I'm sure Playground Games is hard at work on one, but I suspect I'll need to wait a year or so :(
After reading this review, my thoughts: bring on Titanfall!
