    For games that end up being a popular series (Halo, Deadrising, Resident Evil; take your pick), you often find yourself wondering after the first few installments or so, what could possibly happen the next time around.  Am I right?  So then it should come as no surprise that as one of gaming's very highly acclaimed sagas, Gears 5 from developer The Coalition and publisher Xbox Game Studi... more.
  • Gunlord X (Review) Playstation 4 – Game of the Month

    Posted by on January 16, 2020 under Featured Review 1, News, PS4, Reviews
    NGDEVTEAM isn’t like most game developers. As part of the retro revival that occurred well over 10+ years ago, NGDEVTEAM took to developing highly polished, arcade-style games on the Neo-Geo MVS and Neo-Geo AES respectively, while also finding new ways to push the Neo-Geo’s 2D capabilities to their limits. Since the release of their first game, Last Hope, which launched on November 19th, 2007,... more.

  • World War Z (Review) Playstation 4

    Posted by on September 25, 2019 under PS4, Reviews
    There’s nothing more invigorating than running-and-gunning through a zombie infested, post-apocalyptic world assisted by friends or random players online. Games like Killing Floor and Left4Dead transitioned the survival horror genre into bloody, heart-pounding, run-and-gun excursions that require nerves of steel; a steady aim; and impeccable team work from all involved.

  • A Plague Tale Innocence (Review) Xbox One

    Posted by on September 2, 2019 under Reviews, Xbox One
    For those of you who recall my previous review for RIOT: Civil Unrest, know that I was taken by surprise, by a game that ended up being different from what I had originally imagined.  I didn't think another game could possibly raise the bar like that, but A Plague Tale: Innocence by Focus Home Interactive did just that; and even more so. APT: I puts you in the midst of 14th century Black P... more.
