A New Breed of Horror – A Dino Crisis Retrospective, Part 1

Dino Crisis retrospective
on Mon, Aug 18, 2014 | By Gabriel Zamora

Cruising on the success and popularity of the Resident Evil games in the late ’90s, Shinji Mikami and Capcom’s Production Studio 4 got to work on a title that would redesign the survival-horror elements of the RE series to create a panic-heavy thriller. The result was Dino Crisis, which did well enough to spawn several sequels though it never reached the level...

How To: Mastering The Last of Us multiplayer

on Thu, Aug 14, 2014 | By Stephanie Burdo

The Last of Us multiplayer is unlike any other and has become very popular in the online gaming realm of PlayStation 3 and 4. Complimented by an amazing single player experience, the online gameplay requires gamers to think strategically and throw away their old “run and gun” or “camp and snipe” morals. After your first match, you will be in charge...

Final Fantasy X HD Remaster for Vita preserves a classic

Final Fantasy X HD Remaster
on Fri, Aug 8, 2014 | By Tim Torres

I’ve been playing Final Fantasy X HD Remaster on Vita a while now and I’m still impressed with how well the game holds up 13 years after its original release, and in the terrific job Square Enix did preserving a classic. The Vita version is actually a great port. Sony’s struggling handheld has been inundated with crap ports, particularly God of War Collection...

Games of Summer: The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD (Wii U)

on Thu, Aug 7, 2014 | By Stephanie Burdo

What is more befitting of summer than an adventure game based on island exploration? The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker’s HD edition for Wii U brings on those summer tingles in a sweet, tropical fashion. Completely remastered for the Wii U, Wind Waker looks more gorgeous than ever and is loads of fun with the Wii U gamepad. It was initially released for GameCube in 2003...

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

on Thu, Jul 31, 2014 | By Stephanie Burdo

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...
