Fuse Review

Fuse 01
Insomniac Games has been known to produce some wildly imaginative and creative games: Resistance and Ratchet & Clank, among other series. Insomniac have partnered with Electronic Arts to release their first multiplatform game for both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. For some this would mark the first time playing anything from such an accomplished studio, while others would already know the level of games that have been released in the past. But would this mean that their latest release, Fuse, would be met at such a level of quality?

BioShock Infinite Review

BioShock Infinite 01

How do you challenge yourself to create a near perfect game?

In 2007, Ken Levine and Irrational Games were given near perfect praise for their game BioShock. The setting of the underwater city of Rapture and its inhabitants told a perfect tale of a man-made dystopia that showed the evil (virtual) man was capable of given powers that would pollute their mind. Even more, it showed that video games could also be considered on such a level as books and movies in the terms of modern storytelling.

Hyrule Historia Review

Hyrule Historia 01

The Legend of Zelda series is something that has been with me, whether I knew it or not, for some time.

Resident Evil 6 Review

At its pinnacle, the Resident Evil franchise was once considered to be the staple of the term “Survival Horror”. But over the past few entries, Capcom seems to have made it a point to move the series into a more action-orientated direction. While some praised this new direction with breathing new life into the games and changing its gameplay dramatically, it naturally divided its fans – specifically those who wished the series would return to its horror roots. Now Capcom has released Resident Evil 6, a game that appears it wants to be more than it actually is and unfortunately doesn’t deliver were it truly wants.

The Walking Dead: Episode 4 – Around Every Corner Review

To say or explain the journey which the characters in Telltale’s series based in the world of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead have gone through just past the midway point of this five part series is easy, yet difficult. To say emotional is simple, but to convey more into that is the difficult part. Horror, sadness, hopelessness and a bit of joy would just be a small fraction of what would need to be said. And now Episode 4 has finally been released to have us experience the next part of this terrific series.
