Dying Light – Games of 2015

Not all zombies are created equal. It’s actually kind of crazy that we now live in a time where pop culture can quickly identify the differences between zombies from different franchises. Dying Light’s zombies don’t mess around. They are oppressive, hungry, strong, and way too fast. It’s actually the first time that the hopelessness of a… Continue reading

Fallout 4 – Games of 2015

I was married before Tinder came out, which is fine, but Tinder produced my Favorite Internet Thing in 2015 with this:   I can’t say I was waiting with bated breath – while I had dumped a lot of hours into Fallout 3, I took a pass on New Vegas and have never ventured into… Continue reading

Evolve – Games of 2015

The premise worked. Four versus one. Five friends playing one vicious game of hide and seek, except this time the person hiding wants to destroy the planet. Evolve nailed it. After every battle the voice chat would be filled with stories. The team would be going on and on about the mistakes they made or the… Continue reading

Game Curious Brutal Doom v20 – Giddy with Gore

The Doom mod community is ridiculous. Best encapsulated by the fact that there are now 20 versions of Brutal Doom which is the only recent mod I’ve played and therefore my favorite. The addition of death throes, dismemberments, modern weapons, and modern FPS controls make Doom feel like new again. So much fun my face… Continue reading

Game Curious Heavy Bullets – And Megaton Bombs

Here I am, making yet another trip to reset the security mainframe. I’ve navigated through this maze several times now with nothing but my wits and a handful of bullets of questionable weight. I’m told they’re Heavy Bullets, but they always seem to hop around as if lighter than usual… or possibly drunk. As for me, I… Continue reading

Game Curious Ziggurat – Crawl Up In My Face

I’ve always wanted to run into a random dungeon with spells blazin’, but let’s face it that’s just never been a great option. Either the dungeon is too easy or your fantastical spells and weaponry are too weak. Ziggurat may have it figured out, though. It combines the polished dungeon crawler rogue-lite formula and successfully… Continue reading

Strife: Veteran Edition Review: Creating Some Nostalgia

Unfortunately for those buying games this year on release day, or even release quarter, they are being rewarded with strange character glitches, impossible to finish side-quests and various other bugs. There is a better way friends and I’m here to help! For the best and most reliable gaming experience, take a play from my book… Continue reading

Played Halo: The Master Chief Collection – Finish the Fight Forever

If you have an Xbox One console and you didn’t pick up Halo: The Master Chief Collection, you’re wrong. To be clear: it’s Halo CE through Halo 4, with CE & 2 made extra pretty. Oh, and all of the multiplayer maps. For $62. In a haphazard approach necessitated because of an insane 4th Quarter at… Continue reading

Evolve Makes 4v1 Look Good From Both Sides

Turtle Rock, the developers behind Left 4 Dead definitely shook up the the multiplayer genre once before, and its next game, Evolve, may do so again. I’m a sucker for Danzig and Predator references so I stood no chance against the reveal trailer, but the gameplay demo below may have sealed my fate. On one… Continue reading

WTF Is This: Comrad Gaming Helmet

Every so often, you come across something that’s just so unusual that you question whether capitalism and all of the creativity common to it is really that good of an idea. Today, while trying to shop for the Horde, otherwise known as my many cousins, was one of those times. Without further adieu, I present… Continue reading
