A World Worth Exploring: A FEZ Review 0

At first glance, FEZ might appear as just another indie-platformer with a unique twist on the traditional platformer and a great artstyle. While this (oversimplified) description might have been fine for most a few years ago, Braid, Limbo, and other small-time platformers have already done this sort of thing before, so then why is FEZ so damn good? Well, it does it through a myriad of methods, which all combine to create an experience that everybody should partake of.You play as Gomez, a smallis...

The World's Greatest Detective Is Back 0

Batman: Arkham Asylum was nothing short of a gaming tour-de-force. It had fantastically simple, yet deep combat, a story that kept everyone hooked, and it was bursting at the seams with extra content. Rocksteady had quite a task ahead of them, if they hoped ever hoped to surpass the original game, but they have. Batman: Arkham City is everything that its predecessor was and more. The combat remains fantastic, while still adding a few more wrinkles of depth and enjoyment and the story is one of t...

A Bleak But Beautiful Revolution 1

-Reviewers Note: This review is concerning the PC version of the game. I have no experience, nor do I plan to have any, with the console versions.The name Deus Ex conjures many titles and memories in the mind of gamers. One of those lofty titles is, "Best Game of All-Time". So when Deus Ex: Human Revolution was announced, it was hard for many people to feel that anything could be as good as its predecessor. While it was virtually impossible for any sequel to Deus Ex to come close to the greatnes...

NCAA Football 11: Director's Cut 1

Reviewer's Note: This review is regarding the Xbox 360 version of the game. I have no experience whatsoever with the PS3 version and have no plans to do so.At three in the morning I was hit by a wild wave of deja-vu: wasn't I playing the exact same game in the exact same manner last year? Maybe I was up too late and I was merely delusional, so I slept on it, thinking about this preposition. When it comes down to it, this game is basically NCAA Football 11: Director's Cut, it adds very little in ...

Death and Vice in L.A. 0

L.A. Noire isn't your typical Rockstar game; it definitely isn't GTA in the 40's. You can't even aim your gun unless the story calls for it, you get penalized for running into civilians, and driving recklessly is also a detriment. Make no mistake, this is not GTA in the slightest bit. Team Bondi's L.A. Noire is an adventure game, through and through, you go crime scenes and find clues, you interrogate suspects, and you occasionally shoot some bad guys. The shooting takes a back seat for most of ...

I think with Portals. Truly. 1

The original Portal, is quite simply, one of the best games ever made. Its narrative is appropriately vague, tight, and absolutely hilarious. The gameplay is also equally as brilliant. Portal 2 takes all the qualities of the original, and somehow manages to expand upon them. Valve takes the Portal series from a memorable, and somewhat peculiar game, to a series that is as innovative as Half-Life before it. Portal 2 is simply Portal evolved, it takes the bits and pieces of Portal that made it so...

The former Black Isle duders come back to their baby... 0

As I trekked through yet another post-apocalyptic wasteland, I was suddenly hit by a startling epiphany: Fallout is a smart piece of art. Now, this fact was clearly shown by the first two games in the series, but Fallout 3 - As great as a game that it is - wasn’t the most intelligent of games. I’m speaking specifically about the writing here. I can’t say enough good about the writing in this game! It is superb, some of the best in Obsidian’s history, and they’ve made a lot of extremely well writ...
