Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Review: A Shot in the Dark

May 10th, 2017 -

As someone who grew up during the glory days of the Sega Genesis, I have a pretty deeply seated love/hate relationship with updates. This was a time that developers were limited to the final product being released in a finished state and what you got was what you got. If a broken game was released, reviews and word of mouth would spread quickly. Luckily, with our current situation an update (or few) can fix a completely broken game, such as the title we’re reviewing today. Read More »

Birthdays the Beginning Review: The Great Beyond

May 5th, 2017 -

Part Tim Burton, part City of Lost Children, with some Silent Hill and Limbo mixed in for good measure, Little Nightmares puts its influences center stage and it works. Tarsier Studios managed to combine them into an impressive, yet small package that left me yearning for more. Read More »

The Caligula Effect Review: Show Me Your True Form

May 2nd, 2017 -

Picture it, just another boring day in high school. You are giving a speech, and suddenly you begin to see your classmates and the faculty around you change. Not in the usual “I’m unique and am deciding to be Goth today” kind of change either. Think more of a digitized face glitching out to the point of unrecognition. It’s concerning, to say the least. Turns out you’re trapped in a digital world called Mobius. How did you get here, and when did it happen? More importantly, how do you leave? These are all things that you decide you need to find out with the others that have awoken to the nature of the world. Read More »
