Hands-on with Titanfall, the next Modern Warfare

Running into battle
on Fri, Feb 21, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

The hype surrounding Titanfall hearkens to Call of Duty’s next-gen move in 2007. You know, the one that amassed billions in profit with its twitch reflex multiplayer, Modern Warfare. Well, it looks like EA is about to enjoy the same acclaim Activision garnered. Sage Ventour (2D-X contributing photog), and former Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey L. Wilson and I have a compulsive...

Redux: Dark Matters (Dreamcast) Review – Hardcore shmup action

Redux: Dark Matters
on Fri, Feb 21, 2014 | By Ninja-X

SEGA’s short-lived, but beloved Dreamcast has pushed up daisies for well over a decade, but the ill-fated console is the home of a strong indie gaming community that supplies the system with a steady stream of fresh titles. Hucasts’s Kickstarter-funded Redux: Dark Matters is one such game. The space shooter features an incredible soundtrack composed by Andre...

Confession: I am a relapsing WoW addict.

WOW World of Warcraft
on Thu, Feb 20, 2014 | By Elan Samuel

My name is Elan, and I am an addict. I was clean, man. I finally stopped chasing that goddamn dragon and got my life back under control. I was playing other games! I was reading! I went hiking, too! I finished college and got a job! Things were really picking up for me. I was clean for almost four years, then a number of things happened. I had been playing Blizzard’s World...

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z (PS3) Review – Needed more time in the hyperbolic time chamber

Battle of Z
on Wed, Feb 19, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

Namco Bandai has been spot-on with its anime-turned-fighting games. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is an excellent example of how the manga and anime translate into video game form. But yet, with Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, it looks like Namco had plenty of ambition and not enough time to pull off the game it wanted. Battle of Z deviates from the standard fighter...

The old ways are best: How A Link Between Worlds saved Zelda

Zelda Link Between Worlds
on Tue, Feb 18, 2014 | By Tim Torres

I fell out of love with the Legend of Zelda series. I realized that once I forced myself to see Twilight Princess through to the end. I couldn’t bother to finish the Nintendo DS games or the Wii one, Skyward Sword, either. If I didn’t give up on them I tolerated them. This sentiment goes all the way back to Ocarina of Time, the oft-heralded “greatest game...

Outlast (PS4) Review – Survival horror makes a comeback

on Mon, Feb 17, 2014 | By Stephanie Burdo

True survival horror games are very few and far between. As great game series such as Silent Hill, Resident Evil, and Fatal Frame lose their relevancy and began to fade away into the past, the survival horror genre has disappeared along with them — until now. Red Barrels’ Outlast has resurrected dread by restricting supplies and exposing you in a way that makes...

X-List: The 6 most bad ass video game politicians

Senator Armstrong
on Sun, Feb 16, 2014 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

Presidents’ Day is upon us, and every flag-waving, apple pie-eating patriot is either showing respect to  our land’s greatest leaders, or laid up on the sofa downing Ben & Jerry’s while watching Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. I’ll leave it up to you to decide which is truly the more American action. Regardless of your plans for that day, we at 2D-X...

X-List: 10 Valentine’s Day character crushes

Tomb Raider
on Fri, Feb 14, 2014 | By Tatjana Vejnovic

Valentine’s Day is here. Gamers in relationships get to spend it with their loved ones as they eat chocolate, drink champagne, and possibly participate in some weird role-play. Gamers who are single folk  will eat chocolate, possibly watch a sappy rom-com, and drink something stronger than champagne. But, VIDEO GAMES. Whether or not you’re single or taken, if...

Bioshock Infinite’s ending explained

Infinite identities of Elizabeth Comstock and Anna Dewitt.
on Fri, Feb 14, 2014 | By Stephanie Burdo

This piece if FULL of spoilers. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK. Bioshock Infinite is a must-play video game. Not only is the title an oil painting in motion, dramatic screenplay, and an all around mind-bending experience, but its ending is one of the best in the series. For most, the game plateaus at roughly the three-hour mark and reaches an unpredictable climax at the game’s...

Valentine’s Day X-List: 5 video game characters you do NOT want to date

on Fri, Feb 14, 2014 | By Ryan Herrera

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, most socially normal folks are already contemplating going out with a lucky gal/guy, eating dinner and just being pleasant about this façade of a holiday. Others, like yours truly, will be hanging out with/being ignored his cat and doing what he does best: excessively playing video games. And drinking. Also excessively. And with...
