Hero Hunters May Just Be the Android Shooter You’re Looking For

The year 2018 is handing us technology curveballs so fast we can barely dodge them. That means it’s time to sift through the influx of information to find those little nuggets of golden information that we can use to (hopefully) make the right game purchases. With the gaming world going ultra-mobile, there are a lot of things to consider when choosing games to play on your phone. Here are all the ...[Read More]

Metal Gear Survive Review in Progress

Metal Gear Survive is not a BAD game. But it didn’t need the Metal Gear name, and it certainly should have avoided common “survive” tropes like eating and drinking. But, if you take away the Metal Gear Solid V story tie-in, what you’re left with is a mediocre zombie game with base building, crafting, and meh combat. So they’re totally banking on the MGS IP, which is a...[Read More]

Yakuza 6 Might Be Too Awesome

I feel like the Yakuza games have often lingered on the periphery of gaming popularity on the West. They have an adoring fanbase here, but the titles have never quite reached the upper echelons of stardom – until Yakuza 0 and Kiwami came out last year on PS4 and surprised everyone with its breadth of scope and sincerely absurd comic nature. Suddenly, the world was clamoring for the next big ...[Read More]

We have clamored and we have waited and we have bitterly fought each other over this game these long six months. Now, the advent of Se...[Read More]

Why I Love Single Player Games

I’ve been playing a ton of Kingdom Come: Deliverance this week. (Full disclosure: I Kickstarted this game.) That game has taken residence in my mind and, fortunately, has no intention of leaving any time soon. But I’m not here to talk about Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Rather, I want to talk about what this game inspired me to write. This spectacular game just further cements my love of single playe...[Read More]

The “AAA” Industry’s Unending Unchecked Greed

The so-called “AAA” industry is a culture fueled by unending and unchecked greed. I’ve been playing video games almost my entire life and never before can I recall a time when consumers were taken advantage of, exploited, cast aside, and blatantly lied to so overtly like these last few years. Frankly, it’s disgusting. Yes, consumer incompetence is partially to blame, but to claim that the so-calle...[Read More]
