Never Alone – A unique must-play experience

Never Alone is one of those games that I saw at PAX Prime earlier this year which looked interesting but had such a long line that I never actually got to try. I’m certainly glad we received a review key for it and I’m also a bit sad that I hadn’t

World of Warcraft – I Thought I Missed You

With the upcoming 10th anniversary of World of Warcraft coming up this month as well as this week’s release of the new expansion, Warlords of Draenor, it seemed like a good time to make a return to Azeroth after years away. My subscription had officially ended back in 2011, though

Take a trip back in time with The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified was released back in August 2013, but I finally got my hands on it recently due to an awesome sale on Steam. The game got only meh reviews when it came out, but I had a chance to play it briefly back at PAX 13 and it

Evolve – Thoughts on the Big Alpha

I spent some time over this weekend playing the Evolve Big Alpha. I’m not sure how many hours (Steam has made that so simple…) I spent playing, but I certainly have quite a few opinions about that time. It’s a cool concept and visually awesome, but it just didn’t resonate

Sneaky Sneaky – Cute and stabby!

Rocking the old school Zelda games

After being on AAA-title overload for the last few weeks, it seemed like a great time to get back to basics. My wife and I had recently sat down and gone back through the original Legend of Zelda during my Destiny addiction, so for an encore we figured this was

Guardian Down – How a quest for awesome loot broke my addiction to Destiny

Everything was going along great right up until my face smashed into a wall made of PvP and I fell into the meat grinder. Just as I was getting to a point where I thought I could be satisfied enough with my progress in Destiny that I could spend a

Destiny – I have some opinions

I have been bingeing on Destiny for the last week and a half. No joke. It has consumed nearly all of my free time and even time usually earmarked for sleeping. (Sleep is for the weak! Crush the Cabal!) During this time, I’ve noticed the game getting pretty heavily panned

Watch Dogs, Revisited

Recently my illustrious (and handsome!) colleague Charles reviewed Watch Dogs (Ubisoft, PS4/Xbox One, Xbox 360/PS3 and PC) , and did a bang up job (Editor’s note: Love the way you kiss up here Chris!). I’ve spent the past few months with Watch Dogs and have some thoughts of my own.
