Genre-Defining Old School RPGs That You Absolutely Must Play

Isometric RPGs are enjoying a Renaissance these past few years, with projects like Divinity, Wasteland 2, Pillars of Eternity, The Banner Saga among others making a rather big splash, so to make sure the classics get some attention too, we made a list of some landmark titles in the genre.

XCOM 2 Review: Harder, Faster and Better

HARDER, BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER XCOM 2 is brutal. It starts off in the top gear and never really lets up on the mad, desperate scramble to survive. The second in the series of Firaxis’ board-game-y take on MicroProse’s X-Com series, XCOM 2 picks up about 20 years after the first game (XCOM: Enemy Unknown) ended. So about that time leap: you know the Impossible difficulty Ironman mode ...

Bethesda: A Psychopathic Disregard For Franchises

Bethesda Softworks and Zenimax has been nothing short of scummy these past few years. They instill, at least in me, a greasy air of money-grubbing greed. An almost psycopathic disregard for franchises carefully cultivated over decades marks their recent releases, and it makes me mad. Let’s elaborate before I bleed out of my ruptured hemorrhoids, shall we? PART THE FIRST T H E   E L D E R   S...

No Man’s Sky: An Excercise In Boredom | Post Mortem Review

This was supposed to be a review. Now it’s more of a post mortem. Not much left to do but cut open the torso, measure up the viscera and record the lacerations inflicted along with cause of death. Oh and before we begin, this “review” shall be spoiler heavy. So in case you are thinking of giving this game a buy, don’t. That is, don’t buy the game you fool. BACKGROUND As a person who takes gaming s...

Franchise Fatigue Is A Real Thing

Guitar Hero Died For Your Sins Games are like horses: they start smelling when they have not been moving for a bit, and they both stop moving pretty quickly when they’re ridden too hard. My point is annual game franchises get old fast. Case in point, the whole Feel-Like-Van-Halen genre of games. And Adventure games. And linear shooters. And collectathons. And … you get the point, right...

Components For A Gaming Rig: A Primer

There’s never been a better time to be a PC gamer. The gaming scene is vibrant: envelope-pushing graphical powerhouses look best on the PC, and it’s the first stop for independent developers making creative and innovative games. And building a great gaming PC has never been cheaper or easier. But, we admit it, if you’ve never built a PC before, it can still be a little intimidating. In this articl...

Video Game Franchises That Need A Break

Some game franchises are past the point of being put to sleep for a bit and have gone into the shoot-it-in-the-head-and-put-it-out-of-it’s-misery-already territory. There are tired games and then there are games that are zombie animatronics at this point. There are games that are tired, and then there’s this stuff. Anyway, before this sadistic intro gets any more tedious, here’s ...
