Halo: Master Chief Collection Review

If you own an Xbox One and have enjoyed Halo in the past, Halo: Master Chief Collection is hands down the best value for your dollar you will find on the console. I think many would have paid nearly the retail price just for Halo 2: Anniversary Edition - which is the definitive version in this bundle - but to get Combat Evolved, Halo 3, and Halo 4 is a huge bonus. If you need something to play with friends this holiday season, look no further than this Halo collection which is sure to not disappoint.

The Evil Within Review

The Evil Within manages to revive some of the best parts of the Survival Horror genre with its dark brooding atmosphere and classic elements of gameplay. Scavenging for supplies and fighting your way through a detestable world hasn't been this much fun since Resident Evil 4 and Silent Hill 2. The world that Shinji Mikami The Father of Survival Horror has created cleverly combines a tasteful amount of stealth and action sequences that gives the player a great sense of awareness of the world they are traversing.

Sunset Overdrive Review

Insomniac Games has developed some interesting titles in the past, so it was no shock that perhaps the wackiest game of the year was also developed by them. Despite a few minor annoyances, Sunset Overdrive might be one of the best original titles released in 2014, and potentially ever. The game mixes genres that you love - it's been a while since a Tony Hawk Game; get your fix here! - and has some of the best writing I've seen in a video game to date. If you need something to grab to play this holiday season, Sunset Overdrive should be near the top of your list.

Far Cry 4 Review

Kyrat isn't a real place, but the beauty that Ubisoft brought to this pretend-although-based-on-real environment makes me want to head to the Himalayan Mountains sometime in my life. I'll pass on the conflict however. Ubisoft has released another mega hit with Far Cry 4, giving Xbox and Playstation owners the best open world I've ever had the privilege of exploring. While the story is nothing to write home about, everything surrounding the story makes popping this disc in completely worth it.

Super Smash Bros Review

Super Smash Bros on 3DS was packed full of content, ranging from unlockable characters and stages to never-before-seen game pay modes that make playing Smash Bros alone more enjoyable. Nintendo held nothing back when releasing the Wii U version of the game, and the result is one of the best Wii U games available to date.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

The massive and immersive world of J.R.R. Tolkiens Middle-earth series has spawned successful movie series, music pieces, toys, and several video games as well. The fantasy universe is both so immense and so detailed that each adaption has the opportunity to explore a different area and time period than the others. The newest variation to join this long line of success is the new action RPG game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. This open world fantasy extravaganza received great hype before its release date was even known, and the games arrival did not disappoint.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Review

The biggest change to the Borderlands formula in Pre-Sequel - aside from the game's setting, which affects gameplay and aesthetics in a number of ways - are the game's character classes, all based on characters previously seen in the series. These new classes will still serve familiar roles on the battlefield

Super Smash Bros 3DS Review

Super Smash Bros has been one of Nintendo's biggest franchises, and although it may not have the following that Mario Kart does, there are still millions of people around the world who long for the generational Smash Bros games. While we all anticipate the Wii U launch in November, Nintendo is treating us to the first handheld edition of the game, Super Smash Bros 3DS.

Hyrule Warriors Review

Nintendo isn't known for branching out and trying new things. They milk their franchises, and not in a bad way. While many companies tend to produce shovelware, where the brand sells the game rather than the gameplay itself, Nintendo almost always brings AAA experiences to the table. With Hyrule Warriors, however, Nintendo has done something unprecedented for the company: they handed one of their most important franchises to another company to use. While my skepticism of this title was off the charts, I was intrigued during an E3 event in Toronto and was sold ...

Infamous First Light Review

Infamous First Light puts you in the shoes of Abigail Walker, aka Fetch, one of, if not the most interesting characters from InFamous Second Son. It takes you through the events that led up to Fetch's role in the third game of the franchise, something largely unexplored in the base game's plot.
