The human element 0

The first episode of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead was somewhat of a shock to everyone. Coming off of the less than impressive Jurassic Park game, I don’t think people had great expectations for The Walking Dead. Here was yet another zombie related game coming from a developer whose style of game was, perhaps unfortunately, dying off. Yet episode one released to much critical and consumer appraise. While episode one isn’t perfectly paced or written and the choices felt rather obvious, Telltal...

To the fans, with love 0

I don’t want to blow anybody’s minds here, but Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is Halo: Combat Evolved. Very little has changed, and that is far from a bad thing. Captain Keyes still hands you an empty pistol with ammo in it.  There are still overshields in the Covenant boarding ships.  The flashlight is on the end of your gun and the light still whirls around when you melee with it enabled. That is still a subtly amazing little feature. Everyone in the escape pods still dies when landing on Ha...

Improving perfection 0

When Uncharted 2 came out in 2009 it set a new standard for cinematic action games. Where the first game had some solid ideas that didn’t do a whole lot for the industry, the second game was a huge leap forward. It did characters, story, and action in a way that no other game had done before. It was hugely cinematic, beautiful, funny, and simply enjoyable. It was as close to perfect as you could find and topping it seemed an insurmountable task. But leave it to Naughty Dog to improve what was es...

Bombastic, beautiful, and occasionally boring 0

Battlefield 3 has been a long time coming. The last true Battlefield game was released six years ago and since then DICE has tried its hands at some twists on the formula. 2142 tried a future setting and in some aspects succeeded. Then they changed the feel of Battlefield entirely and made it for consoles with the Bad Company games, which in terms of multiplayer, succeeded greatly. Now, after six games and six years, DICE has unleashed Battlefield 3, but does it live up to the hype?For the most ...

Batman at his greatest 0

I remember when I beat Portal 2 for the first time I couldn’t quite decide how I felt about it. This wasn’t due to the game having done things poorly or having a lack of emotion, no, my indecisiveness towards it came from the fact that it had been so long since I had encountered perfection. This same feeling, this stunned awe perhaps, was the first thing I felt when the credits hit the screen. There was sadness, alongside this awe, that crept up inside me that only comes once and a while, only f...

Rage against the machine 0

Rage has a storied past. Following the release of Doom 3 in 2004 John Carmack and his team of engineers began working on a new engine, an engine that would bring id into the new generation of consoles with stunning effect. It would not be the first time that the genius of Carmack would stun the world with technology. He had just done it with Doom 3, which had arguably the best lighting gaming had ever seen, and he had done it for years prior with Doom and Quake. From 2004 to 2006 Carmack and his...

Something quite different. 0

A man once said that videogames could never be art, he then redacted his statement because of the bad press it was attracting, Ebert was right though, for the most part, videogames could never be art, as “art” is defined; the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way to affect the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature, film, photography, sculpture, and paintings. Most ga...
