Lego Dimensions Review

LEGO is a powerhouse in the toys marketplace, and for good reason. LEGO is not your average toy. It can be manipulated into anything the creator wants. Parts can be mixed and matched, characters that have no place being in the same realm all of a sudden coexist. It is the creative options that makes the toy so admired by children and adults a like. It really shouldn't be any surprise that LEGO, Travelers Tales, and Warner Bros. teamed up to release their own toys-to-life game into a genre that is possibly over crowded already. So how does LEGO Dimensions ...

Elder Scrolls Online: Imperial City DLC Review

A few months ago we posted our review for the Elder Scrolls Online for Xbox One. We really, really liked it! Even with the various issues that were present at the time, Bethesda still delivered an excellent, Skyrim like experience on Xbox One. And as an Elder Scrolls fan, that was all I could ask for. Bethesda recently launched its first large DLC pack entitled The Imperial City. For fans of Oblivion, the city layout and various areas may feel slightly familiar, although we are dealing with a different time period in the Cyrodiil timeline. The city you will ...

Tales from the Borderlands Episode 2: Atlas Mugged

The last time we were in Tales from the Borderlands it was episode one of the Telltale episodic adventure and we saw Rhys and Fiona surviving a very dangerous race. They had also suffered a betrayal of epic proportions. In Episode Two, Atlas Mugged, we get the fallout of Episode One and all of the events that our characters went through.

Skylanders SuperChargers Review

Just when one would expect the Skylanders formula to get dated, the team at Activision comes up with something new to excite players. This time around, that new mechanic is vehicles. While driving these toys around the level can sometimes be frustrating, their inclusion in Skylanders SuperChargers gives the Skylander franchise a very much necessary kick in the butt. Skylanders SuperChargers is the best entry in the series to date with better looking characters, more gameplay options, and of course, vehicles!

Skylanders amiibo A Sensational Idea

When Reggie and Activision announced at E3 2015 that Nintendo characters were coming to Skylanders, I was fairly skeptical, especially since it was also announced that these characters would also be amiibo compatible. Now that I have the figures in my hands - thanks to Activision who saved me a lot of money (more on that later) - I can say my skeptism was unfounded. While I wish the characters modeled an amiibo more than a Skylander, the final figures are still excellent little toys that are loads of fun to play with in Skylanders SuperChargers.

Blood Bowl 2 a Great Recreation

If you are not familiar, Blood Bowl is actually a Warhammer Table Top game that is enjoyed by a fairly niche group of individuals. With its launch on console, I think a wider audience will be found. Whether these people will stay to play, however, is the real question. Despite a lackluster tutorial system which inevitably requires players to learn-as-they-play, there is a lot to love in Blood Bowl 2. Don't be confused, however, Madden fans. If you are dedicated sports game fan, this probably is not the game for you.

Rainbow Six Siege Beta Impressions

Outside of Assassins Creed, Ubisoft has made a name for themselves via the Rainbow Six franchise. The game has always been a lot of fun, focusing on team game play. Rainbow Six Siege is no different. Armed with a number of tools, players are let loose to fight each other in 5v5 multiplayer matches, and from what I have played, it is really, REALLY fun.

Mad Max Review

Mad Max on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, came out at the worst possible time. Sure, the movie was fairly successful, but for a game based on a movie to come out right around Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is retail suicide. And that is very, VERY unfortunate because Mad Max is definitely worth the price of entry, especially if you like variety in your games.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Review

Trying to review Metal Gear Solid after most major outlets already gave it a perfect 10/10 score is really difficult. Going in, expectations were too high. From what some outlets wrote, I was about to play and review the game of the generation. Well, I won't be passing on any surprises: Metal Gear Solid V is probably one of the best game I have played yet on Xbox One - battling with the Witcher 3 for that top spot! - despite the fact that, frankly, I suck at it.
