Blowfish Meets Meteor (iOS) Review – A decent spin on the brick-breaker

Blowfish Meets Meteor
on Wed, Aug 6, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

It’s difficult to be hard on a game that takes a stale genre and reinvents it so well. There’s a unique storyline, and challenges that you don’t typically see in a block-breaker game. Sadly, the touch controls hamper Blowfish Meets Meteor from being an enjoyable experience and in turn, makes it a struggle for control that detracts from the main attraction....

Red Letter Media’s Pre-Rec is wrong about Sonic the Hedgehog

sonic the hedgehog is overrated
on Mon, Aug 4, 2014 | By Tim Torres

Red Letter Media’s video game show, Pre-Rec, features two guys named Jack and Rich. In a recent episode they call the old Sonic the Hedgehog games on the SEGA Genesis overrated. They have a couple good points, but they let their skill, or lack thereof, and their failure to learn the nuances of the Sonic games ruin what they have to say. After spending time making...

Guardians of the Galaxy (Movie) Review – A nostalgic adventure across the galaxy

A perfect League of Legends team.
on Sat, Aug 2, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

Ooga-chaka ooga-ooga ooga-chaka. I’m certainly hooked on a few feelings and surprisingly some weren’t expected. This cosmic adventure lead by the legendary Peter Quill (or as comic fans know him: Star-Lord) is a sad, nostalgic, and fun journey that concludes in the most satisfying way possible. Don’t worry about any spoilers as I will not mention one plot...

Tears of emotion while setting up my new Wii U, happy and sad

For the longest time, I have wanted to purchase the Nintendo Wii U for the following games: Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Bros., and Hyrule Warriors. After almost two years of hesitation, I finally picked one up for myself. There were two major things holding me back from making my purchase. First, I knew that I could put that $300 toward an Xbox One which I would probably use...

Func KB-460 MX Blue Switch (Review) – The best damned keyboard, period

A handy, removable wrist rest.
on Wed, Jul 30, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

We’ve got our hands and nimble fingers on our first mechanical keyboard in our test lab and it has left one of the best impressions any PC peripheral ever has. The Func KB-460 with MX Blue switches is simple, sleek, stylish, and extremely reliable. It has become my everyday keyboard and has blown the competition away, an impressive feat on its own. But enough gushing...

Horrible controls and single-player made Resident Evil scary

For a 3DS game this sure packed some serious scares.
on Tue, Jul 29, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

Resident Evil, contrary to what you’ll read here, is a series dear to me. I love the franchise and its outlandish lore that happens to pit zombies in the middle of all the human melodrama. I’ve even enjoyed the more recent and fan despised entries. We’ve seen Capcom make several mishaps with the series in regards to plot, character development. But it’s...

No Man’s Sky: Will it live up to its god-like potential?

on Fri, Jul 25, 2014 | By Stephanie Burdo

First announced at VGX 2013 and later debuted at Sony’s E3 2014 press conference, No Man’s Sky has spread through the gaming community like wildfire. For the first time in gaming history, players will be able to become the virtual Neil Armstrong of the modern age by exploring infinite galaxies within an ever-growing universe. Although the game seems to have great...

Valiant Hearts: The Great War (PS4) Review – Respect

Pasted Graphic
on Thu, Jul 24, 2014 | By Elan Samuel

War is an overused theme in entertainment media, and video games in particular are supersaturated with “War is Hell” offerings that do nothing to reinforce the horrors that war visits upon those who are affected by it and the regions in which they take place. They oftentimes feature a white, chisel-jawed superman, who manages to take out the entire opposing force...
