Review: Cloudbuilt

There are few games that have a strong emphasis on free-running. For the most part, we get some in every iteration of Assassin’s Creed, but it’s hardly the main emphasis. In fact, the only game that most people will think of when it comes to free running is Mirror’s Edge. Cloudbuilt is attempting to bring… Read More »

Turning Japanese – Part One: I Took LSD and Lived

My fiancée recently spent a semester abroad in Japan. This was a dream recognized for her. However, it was also really interesting for me to hear first-hand accounts of all kinds of Japanese cultural events and things that I previously had no clue about. The experience was endlessly interesting but was made even more interesting… Read More »

Last week at CES, Sony made headlines by announcing their new service, known as PlayStation Now. The service looks to be able to stream PlayStation 3 games to both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita. This is absolutely huge news and could, in all honesty, change how we look at console gaming for years… Read More »

This week PlayStation Plus receives, arguably, the biggest game to date in the Instant Game Collection, Bioshock Infinite. The game, which was recently awarded Game of the Year from The Married Gamers, is my personal favorite game of 2013. It’s a game that, even months after its release, I still think about on a regular… Read More »

Staff Picks 2013: Best Story in a Game – Bioshock Infinite

Nominees: Bioshock Infinite, Gone Home, The Last of Us, Tomb Raider The original Bioshock set an incredibly high bar near the start of the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 generation of consoles. Crafting a story that is partly a critique of Ayn Rand-ian philosophies and partly a story of deception and betrayal, the game was an instant… Read More »

ContentID is Bad For Everyone

Beginning last week and continuing through this week, the biggest news on the internet seems to be YouTube’s rollout of their “ContentID” system. ContentID, essentially, scans videos throughout the website, searching for copyrighted content. When this content is found, it “flags” the users video, meaning that users can no longer make any money from their… Read More »

Nominees: Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, New Super Mario U: New Super Luigi, Saint’s Row IV: Enter the Dominatrix When Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was first announced, it seemed like it was just a massively elaborate April Fool’s joke. However, when the game actually launched, it was a glorious… Read More »

This week, PlayStation Plus subscribers are being treated to Dyad being added to the Instant Game Collection. The Tempest inspired game is, in all honesty, fairly difficult to describe. You travel through a series of pipes, “hooking” onto various items, pulling yourself through each level. What really sets Dyad apart from other titles, though, is the extremely… Read More »

This week on PlayStation Plus, Sony has added, arguably, their biggest game to the Instant Game Collection with Borderlands 2. With Telltale’s announcement of Tales from the Borderlands at Spike TV’s VGX this weekend, the addition of Borderlands 2 to the Instant Game Collection makes near perfect sense. Thankfully we’re getting Borderlands 2 instead of… Read More »

Oh yes, it’s true. We’re back with our weekly Playstation Plus updates and this one is a doozy. First up, being added to the Instant Game Collection is Grid 2 from Codemasters. I reviewed this game earlier this year and found it to be a semi-decent, simulation style racing game. It does seem, however, to… Read More »
