How the hell did we get so sick of God of War (GoW) that it took half a decade to resurface? A person unfamiliar with the series might look at GoW Ascension (hereafter referred to as Ascension) for the answer and come away none the […]

When I think of hack n’ slash action games, the first thing that pops into my head is a cheeky and charismatic protagonist. When I think back on why this is, I credit it to the key games that got me into the genre, Devil […]

Far Cry 5 Review

Far Cry 5 is by no means a perfect game. There are inconsistencies in its tone, the villains are forgettable compared to those in the series’ previous entries, and some of the mission design can be repetitive in nature. The co-op also comes with disappointing […]
