The Evil Within 2

The Evil Within is a franchise that was conceived on the notion of returning survival horror to its roots. It was a bold statement that resonated with many horror fans at the time, given the industry’s gradual shift towards action horror. The fact that Resident […]

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

You like dessert, right? Sure you do. And if you know you like dessert, surely you know what type is your favourite, yes? Think of that familiar comfort, and then imagine at what point it would become off-putting or even unpleasant to eat. Dishonored: Death […]

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

Capcom has screwed the pooch with fighting games in this current generation. If you had told me back in 2011 that Capcom would eventually release Street Fighter V unfinished and woefully unbalanced, I would have laughed in your silly face and called you a damned […]

Destiny 2

To say the original Destiny had an underwhelming launch is quite an understatement. Bungie’s supposed CoD killer was light on content, heavy on tedious grinding, and had a story that didn’t have time to explain why it didn’t have time to explain. While many of […]

NBA 2K18

Descending from up on high, it’s that time of year where I get excited about the latest NBA 2K release and remember what it fleetingly feels like to be an idealistic youngster. Discussion of the NBA and the most recent video game is a core […]
