A Masterful Remaster 0

Call of Duty 4 was the most influential shooter of the last generation. Its control scheme became the standard for first person shooters. Its short, action packed campaign served as a template for the abundance of clones released in its wake. Although, its biggest impact was in online multiplayer, where the addition of a persistent leveling framework, unlocks, and customizable loadouts changed the landscape of competitive shooters.The newly remastered version released on the back of Infinite War...

Mirror's Edge: Catalyst - Parkour Fun with a Hint of Corporate Opression 0

Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst is a pleasant surprise simply for existing at all. That the fresh and exhilarating concepts found within the original Mirror’s Edge were getting a second breath of life filled me with hope.

As the game came closer to release ...

As Born progresses, a narrator will expl...

Fallout 4 - Smart Improvements and Busy Work 0

With any of Bethesda's open world RPGs, the biggest challenge comes from wondering where to even begin. Fallout 4 is no different. Like its predecessors, it depicts a massive post-apocalyptic world where the ruins of an uber-patriotic alternate history America are waiting to be unearthed. Its retro-futuristic atmosphere still holds strong, binding together the time tested formula of exploration, loot, character development, and player choice. With these elements intact, Fallout 4 is essentially...
