Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Review

Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii was an underappreciated late-comer to the console. Very few people played it, yet those that did were very vocal about it: the looks of the game, how big it was, and how mainstream it could be, despite falling into the JRPG category. When Monolith Soft announced a remake of this beloved title on the New 3DS - first exclusive to the New handheld - fans began to get excited, and some even purchased the New 3DS just for this.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Review

Resident Evil is no longer the game it was twenty years ago and with good reason. Revelations 2 takes a step back towards horror while keeping a lot of what made the newer games fun, but the co-op is at the least disappointing.

Spirits of Xanadu Review

Xanadu is an abandoned space ship littered with blood trails, cryptic audio logs, murderous robots, and intense mystery surrounding the events that have taken place there. Originally a research ship orbiting a strange planet, there has been no contact with the crew for months, and one single operative has been sent in to investigate and hopefully bring them home. Acting as this lone investigator, the player navigates their way through this shadowy and terrifying ship trying to find answers while avoiding the many enemies lurking in the dark hallways. A ...

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round Review

Koei are perhaps the only developer to have massively embraced the idea of porting their games to next-gen consoles en masse. Dynasty Warriors 8, Samurai Warriors 4, Warriors Orochi 3 and now Dead or Alive 5 have all made the leap with mostly positive results. Mostly positive, because although there's nothing specifically wrong with the shiny, new versions of these games, there's no exactly a whole lot of improvement either.

Code Name S.T.E.A.M. Review

What you find in Code Name S.T.E.A.M*. is not your usual London. Instead, you'll find a London powered by steam, full of aliens and...Abraham Lincoln? Yup, this iconic America hero, as well as many other real and fictional characters, all team up to rid London of the nasty alien pests; while this sounds completely wacky - which it is - it also works really well, making it one of the best turn based games I've played in a long time.

Hand of Fate Review

Card games are great fun when played with friends, but I've never really felt that they have translated well to consoles. Many have tried, but few have been really successful. Hand of Fate is a mash-up between a card game and a hack and slash game and it works really well. Although there are a number of frame rate and lag issues, Hand of Fate is still an excellent experience on Xbox One.

The Crew Review

One of the things The Crew has going for it is actually the story. While overall it isn't breaking any major boundaries, it gets off to a great start. Unfortunately, the story becomes secondary to driving across America and essentially doing the same things over and over again, but Ubisoft grips players early with how things pan out. It's a story of crooked cops, a murdered brother, and so much more. The story starts off on a high, and probably would have great throughout had this been a much shorter experience.

Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries Preview

“This is not a fairy tale. There’s nothing fair about it”. When the protagonist of Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries introduces us to her world, this is the key statement she makes. A warning and an explanation: she is telling the player that this is no ordinary happy-ending bedtime story. In early-access on Steam, Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries tells the classic story of Little Red Riding Hood with a dark and gritty twist that takes the old story to a whole new level.

Assassins Creed Unity Review

Throughout the years, Assassins Creed has become an over-exerted franchise, and a new iteration can be found on store shelves just in time for every holiday season. The history of Assassins Creed has reached some amazing highs (AC2 & AC4), as well as some pitiful lows (AC3 & AC: Revelations) and Assassins Creed Unity looked to change up the formula for the better yet again. Ubisoft Montreal figured that by adding an extensive multiplayer experience and a highly interactive world filled with thousands of NPCs, it would make the late 18th century playground of ...

Overture Review

Recently action-adventure rogue-like games have made a huge comeback. With notable successes recently such as The Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne, this game-type is seeing resurgence. The most recent in the line is Overture. Allowing the player to control a 16-bit hero and navigate them through randomly generated dungeons across the world, Overture is fun, fast-paced, and non-stop action.
