Doom First Look – QuakeCon 2014

Doom-HellKnightIt’s been a long time coming, but we finally have new information on the new Doom game from id Software, now formally titled Doom. I attended QuakeCon in Dallas, Texas and saw the first public footage of the game, tailor-made for fans of the series. They didn’t allow any kind of photography or video, but at least allow me to paint you a word picture.

Sniper Elite 3 Review: One Note

Sniper-Elite-3-Debut-Trailer-Released

“There are plenty of targets worthy of a bullet; men who need to die. Time for find more work.”

The final lines of Rebellion’s newest release resemble an apt view of the game as a whole. It is a power fantasy of the highest order; a hyper violent, marginally fun trek through orange and brown landscapes of Africa, looking for Nazis to kill. There are plenty of targets for you to shoot; plenty of men who die by your hand. But, Sniper Elite 3 is a one-note gimmick that will leave you longing for different work. [Read more...]

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review: Paths of Glory

Valiant_Hearts_Key_ArtWar never changes, especially in video games. Countless number of games set you in the heat of battle, gunning down hundreds of enemies with reckless abandon. We never understand the pathos of those stories; we never hear of their struggles; all we ever see are moments plucked from action movies. Valiant Hearts: The Great War tells a touching story of a handful of soldiers in the midst of World War I — it’s just a shame this story needs to be a video game too. [Read more...]

Shovel Knight Review: Rose-Tinted Glasses

In almost every review I write, there is inevitably a point at which it will be tempting to fill a paragraph with pointless comparisons. “It’s a GTA-style open-world game,” or “a fast-paced Call of Duty-type shooter.” I do my best to avoid these comparisons, because I think they’re a little cheap, and more than a little easy. Every now and then a game comes along, however, that is practically begging to be compared. Enter Shovel Knight. [Read more...]

Watch Dogs Review: Feature Incomplete

WatchDogs-preview-1Here is a simple fact about hacking: it’s not fun to watch. Movies and video games world over would like to convince you that this isn’t true, but the tedium prevails. Any writer on earth can make a character type something furiously into a keyboard and have something unexpected happen on the other end — but that’s not really the allure of hacking, is it?

Transistor Review: Tactical Allure

Transistor_Wallpaper_1920x1080“Hey, Red. We’re not going to get away with this, are we?”

Transistor starts boldly and isn’t afraid to let players figure out mechanics and story for themselves. That sense of mystery and discovery fills every moment of the second game from Supergiant Games, creators of the wonderfully unique Bastion. While it can be slightly intimidating at first, Transistor quickly becomes a very satisfying and unique game that shares many similarities with Bastion, but is never beholden to old ideas.
