Jacked Up Iron Giant: Titanfall 2 Review

Now if you’re a fan of the Iron Giant, well, Titanfall 2 is just like the Iron Giant except on steroids. The sequel was far better than I had expected it to be and I’m sure that’s the thought a lot of you have. Like, holy cow Batman, this is far better than Call of Duty! Are we sure the devs  from Respawn worked on Call of Duty? I went into this game blind, not knowing what it was going to offer and no, I haven’t played the first Titanfall. The game starts with assuming control of Rifleman Jack Cooper from the Frontier Militia, a quick training level which introduces the player to the different moves like sliding and wall running and the different weapons available in the game. There’s even a quick time trial right at the end of the training and then comes the moment we all were waiting fo...

Lets Be Civilized: Civilization VI Review

Let me say this off the bat, Civilization VI is the most fun I had with a PC title this year, and is hands down the best game in the franchise. It builds up and improves on the previous games, and refines them to a fine polish. It’s also the most complete Civilization game at launch, with a lot of complexity, and strategic depth, that can keep you invested in the game for hours on end. And it needs it, because Civilization VI is a game that demands you to spend hours thinking about diplomatic decisions, religious tendencies, trading systems, upgrade paths, and more. I know that the main appeal of this game is the strategic depth that it offers, but you can’t deny that the visual style of the series has become an integral part of the franchise. While Civilization VI changes the ...

The Fool Of A Tearful Fart: Shadow Warrior 2 Review

Shadow Warrior 2 is what drew everyone to the old FPS classics – fast, action based gameplay filled with witty yet somewhat juvenile and cheesy retorts. For instance, soon into the first mission in the game, you encounter an old Asian man (well, it’s an Asian setting but bear with me) enforcing the sensei stereotype who says to you, “Intimidation is the tool of the fearful heart.” To that, you say, “Hey, better than being the fool of the tearful fart.” Catch my drift? It’s hilarious, and goes to show Lo Wang’s gimmick as the 1990’s wannabe badass. He is a walking stereotype and somewhat of a joke in himself. Getting away with phrases like “don’t mess with the Wang”, our katana wielding protagonist sure has a way with w...

Would’ve Been Better Off As A Movie: Mafia III Review

Mafia III was a highly anticipated, uber hyped title this year, and much like other uber hyped titles, just as disappointing. Even though it sets out to take the open world style of GTA V to a higher level with a meaningful plot and serious issues, it falls short again, and again, and yet again. Progressing like a documentary movie, Mafia III tells the story of Lincoln Clay, who has just returned to his home in New Bordeaux after serving in the Vietnam War, only to find his family in the midst of an inter-community gang war. The game starts with a heist mission with you trying to rob the Federal Reserve, intermitted by cutscenes that shed some light on the backstory of your character. After this heavily action packed intro, you get to the main storyline where Lincoln’s sole aim is ve...

An Out of The Box Nostalgia Factory : Unbox Review

Ever miss the era of the N64, that gave us golden platformers like Super Mario 64? Well, get ready for a trip down the nostalgia train. Unbox, the adorable, incredibly easy to get into platformer by Prospect Games is everything you love about the old school games. Select the level, collect ’em all and save the day. Here’s the basic premise. You’re a cardboard box named Newbie, and your aim is to save the Global Postal Service (or GPS in short). Facing financial troubles, GPS has created a race of sentient, self-delivering cardboard boxes. That’s right, the postal service is millenniums ahead of its time. I think the reason why the company faces bankruptcy is because of this invention, but who knows? You have to fight the first ever self-aware box created, Wild, and ...
