Injustice 2 Review

Injustice 2 isn't really your typical fighting game, and although it has all the makings of a solid fighting game - which it is - it is still not 'typical.' What is typical? Typical isn't a bad thing, but it's an industry constant that does get dated pretty quickly. This this case, typical is that multiplayer reigns supreme, single player is more of an introductory element, and if you cannot compete online, there is not point to even purchasing the game. That's a typical fighting game, and thankfully for me, that is not Injustice 2.

More Thoughts From Me #70: Thats Your Opinion

I use to get into “fights” on twitter a lot. I would say something (or I’d say something to somebody else), somebody would disagree with me, and we’d go back and forth until we both got fed up and unfollowed and/or blocked each other. The problem with fights on the internet, especially places like Twitter, is that nobody wins. EVER. If somebody has their mind made up, you are not likely to change it. So why do we feel the…

Portal Knights Impressions – Xbox One

Portal Knights is a wonderful cross between Minecraft crafting and a somewhat deep RPG game. With a number of classes to choose from, tons of ways to upgrade your characters stats and abilities, and the chance to create wonderful buildings and worlds, Portal Knights is more than just a Minecraft clone: it is a more in depth, and personally a much more fun experience – yes, I said it! Don’t get me wrong, Minecraft is a ton of fun, but…

LEGO Dimensions – LEGO City Fun Pack Review

LEGO City Undercover was an excellent release way back on the Wii U, and got its deserved rerelease on all platforms early this year. Not to lose out on that hype, Travelers Tales has officially launched the LEGO City Fun Pack for LEGO Dimensions, bringing Chase McCain and a cast of other characters over to the LEGO Dimensions universe. While this obviously isn't a 1-for-1 remake of the full fledged LEGO City Undercover title, it is a wonderful addition to the Dimensions world, and might even entice those who have yet to play the full Chase McCain adventure, ...

Flatout 4 Total Insanity Review

To say that a number of the previous Flatout titles were a disappointment would be an understatement, so heading into Flatout 4, I wasn't particularly enthusiastic about what I was about to play. When compared to other Flatout games in the franchise, the fourth iteration does a great job to cleaning up some of the problems present, but also introduces a few new ones. Flatout 4 is an enjoyable experience, but won't be for everyone.

The Surge Review

Many companies are seeing the appeal of the "Dark Souls Formula" and are attempting to create difficult games in the same vein. While most of these games fall flat, The Surge gets pretty close, and yet still so far. However, unlike other games that attempt to make a stab at this type of game play, The Surge does stand on its own quite well, making it a worthwhile game for fans of the Dark Souls series.
