Unlike Jon, I did not start playing Hand of Fate in early access. It looked pretty cool, but I’m not a super big player of roguelike games. However, when I was offered an Xbox One review copy, I absolutely had to take a chance on it. Now I can’t stop

Having now spent over 60 hours in game and finally finished the main quest line, I have to say that any discussion of the story needs to be broken up into the main and side quests. These aspects of the game are so disparate that they feel like two complete
Do you have to play Origins and Dragon Age 2 to play Inquisition? I have not been shy at all about my love of the Dragon Age series. It hits all the fantasy buttons for me and told me a story that sucked me in… When Dragon Age 2 first
Last week I got my hands on a copy of Techland‘s newest release, Dying Light. It’s a first person zombie apocalypse / survival horror / parkour running mash-up with some light RPG elements thrown in for good measure. I’ve clocked well over 30 hours in it so far and it’s
I have been inspired by the recent way too late movie reviews around here and I’ve decided to apply a similar approach to games. This certainly has nothing to do with finding a way to justify the 139 hours that I’ve already spent in the game in the slightest. (Okay,
I may be a bit late to the Alien party, but I am damn glad that I got on board with this franchise. I had never watched any of the movie quadrilogy, nor had I really played any of the games based on them. I was in no way a
Last week, a couple things happened: my Xbox One returned from being repaired and the first DLC for Destiny was released. It was hard to figure out which I was most excited about, so right after we recorded episode 68 of the podcast, I had my controller in hand and the
“I like big boats, I cannot lie.” – Isabela, Dragon Age II Is it just me, or was releasing two different Assassin’s Creed games at the same time a somewhat confusing move? If you’ve been too distracted by Unity to notice, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue was released at the same time exclusively
Tuesday saw the release of the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands, Zero Sum. After playing the small demo at PAX Prime, I was champing at the bit to play the whole episode and it did not disappoint. Telltale Games has a great knack for these directed narrative games and
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
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
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
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
Have you heard of Sneaky Sneaky? I sure hadn’t until I got a preview key for it. I was told that it was a turn-based stealth adventure game and it seemed to involve a rogue or thief, so that was good enough for me. I happen to like being stealthy,
We’ve talked a few times on the Dorkadia Podcast about what was your first game that really gave you a thirst for more, and I could easily talk for hours on how awesome Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers was back in the day. My brother came home with a stack of floppy
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
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
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
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.
The Knight Squad station within the XBox One pavilion on the PAX Prime 2014 expo floor was unassuming. Nestled between the fluorescent Sunset Overdrive wall and the irresistible Dragon Age: Inquisition multiplayer demos, I might have missed it if it wasn’t for the people screaming while jamming buttons on their controllers.
After launching the most cryptic (and yet highly telling) trailer to grace the unworthy eyeballs of man and beast, The Behemoth went forth to PAX Prime in Seattle and unveiled the glory that is Game 4! Staying true to their promise, it is a game in a genre that they
