Hotel Transylvania 3: Monsters Overboard on Xbox One

When you hear about video games based on movies, it's not uncommon to instantly assume what you are about to play will be complete trash. And if I'm being honest, the only reason why I requested this game in the first place was for my kids to have an opportunity to play it, while I did my review. This review request was driven by my kids, but I'm thankful they pushed me towards it because Hotel Transylvania 3: Monsters Overboard is a fantastic experience on the system.

Vampyr Review

The dark and dreary setting of World War 1 London wasn't something I thought i would ever enjoy, but when you factor in vampires and an intriguing story, perceptions begin to change. From beginning to end, Vampyr was a story I constantly was engaged with, and although the lackluster and clunky combat almost held me back a few times, the running story and character progression kept me focused on the end game.

State of Decay 2 Review

Microsoft's focus in 2018 so far has been multiplayer experiences; this began with Sea of Thieves which launched just a few months ago in March, which has been followed up by the highly anticipated open world zombie game, State of Decay 2. While spending time with friends in this expansive world is lots of fun, technical hiccups and lack of variety hold this title back from being one of the brightest on the Xbox

Sea of Thieves Review

Sea of Thieves is a game that is LOADED with potential, but little of which is released at this time. It's also a game I will keep coming back to from time-to-time to see what has been changed and updated. What is hear is great, but when you are asking 59.99 USD for the experience, it quickly becomes apparent that what's here isn't worth the retail purchase price. On the flip side, for those looking at it via Xbox Game Pass, there is plenty of value here for your $10 a month entrance price.

Far Cry 5 Review

When a franchise gets into it's 4th or 5th title, sometimes bad habits or complacency sets in and what consumers ultimately get at retail is a paired down, lackluster experience that disappoints in many ways. Ubisoft themselves have been partially guilty of this, especially when you look back on releases like Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed Unity. However, this is a company that has learned from the past, and the recent release of Assassin's Creed Origins is proof that Ubisoft knows how to create fantastic experiences. Far Cry 4 was good, but never ...

Real Farm Review

Farming Simulation games have a huge following, mostly from European gamers, and because of the immense success of the Farming Simulator franchise, more and more companies are coming to the table with their own versions. Real Farm from SOEDESCO is a great example of a company looking to take that formula, change it up a bit to make it their own, and release it to the public. But when you are going up against such a beloved franchise, how hard is it to rise to the top? And is your game going to be any good, or just be considered a knock off? We look at this, ...

Railway Empire Review

I've been a fan of trains ever since I was young; I've owned electric train sets, LEGO train sets, and have played my fair share of train simulation titles. Nothing ever grabbed my attention, however, like the great old title, Transportation Tycoon Deluxe. Although not entirely based on just trains, it was the main element to the game. I enjoyed moving goods and people from one site to another, growing cities, and amassing some riches. Until Railway Empire, nothing has tickled that nostalgic itch for me, that is until Railway Empire on the Xbox One. But how ...

Vanishing of Ethan Carter Review Xbox One Update

At the very start of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, a message sprawls across the screen informing the player that this game does not hold your hand and that through atmospheric exploration you will discover the truth. This statement could not be more true, and only moments into gameplay it is clear that you are on your own. With nearly open world investigation and a subtle storyline that does not force the player into doing things in any particular order, you are able to fully enjoy the experience of the world created. A beautiful game at heart, it was ...

Xbox One X Review

We all know about the power packed under the hood of the Xbox One X. Microsoft is boasting that their latest console has 40% more power than any other console on the market, with a 2.3 GHz clocked 8-core Custom AMD CPU, 12 GB of GDDR5 of graphics memory, and 6 Teraflop GPU enabled 4K for outstanding picture quality. For your hardcore, technological expert, all of this data means something; for the rest of us, it's a lot of numbers and acronyms that sound great, although we aren't entirely sure what they mean. But at the end of the day, what does the Xbox One ...

Super Lucky’s Tale Review

The best part about reviewing a game later than other outlets is too see what the chatter is around a specific title, and being able to feed off of that. In general, the majority of outlets are on the same page when it comes to titles, the things they do well, and the things they do poorly. After spending a significant amount of time with the title on Xbox One X, I jumped online to see what the reaction was within the media circle. I was shocked. I was seeing scores of 5 and 6 out of 10, and was flabbergasted on how that was possible. So, I returned to Super ...
