Skin It To Win It | Monster Hunter: World Review

“Choose your target, track it down. Quickly, now, pick up the pace. Bash it, slash it, break its crown. And wear the pieces on your face.”   That, my friends, is the Monster Hunter series in a nutshell. The general flow of the franchise consists of racing the clock to track down a vicious beast and engage in a long, exciting battle. Victory rewards you with items, typically broken or skinned off your prey, to fashion new

Ubisoft Giveth and Ubisoft Taketh Away | A Review of Far Cry 5

far cry 5 review

Ubisoft Giveth and Ubisoft Taketh Away: A Review of Far Cry 5 I have a love-hate relationship with the Far Cry series.  I didn’t much care for the first one; I skipped the second one; I actually really enjoyed the frat bro to Rambo story of the third one; I enjoyed 75 percent of the fourth one, until I realized I was pretty much playing the same game with a slightly better antagonist; I skipped the

A Bright Future | Horizon Zero Dawn Review

We, as gamers, find ourselves in one of the most crowded, competitive seasons in recent memory as a multitude of heavy hitting titles fight tooth and nail for a second in the spotlight. Whether it’s the return of staple franchises like the Legend of Zelda and Mass Effect, the emergence of new IP like For Honor, or even a brand new console in the Nintendo Switch; the slightest misstep can spell disaster for an otherwise

Sheer Velocity Killed The Kat | Gravity Rush 2 Review

Back in 2012, the original Gravity Rush released on the PlayStation Vita. The protagonist, Kat, wakes up in a mysterious town surrounded by storms, alongside a mysterious cat with the uncanny ability to manipulate gravity. With the press of a button, “Gravity Queen” Kat could negate her own gravitational pull and any nearby objects and shift the effects of gravity in any direction, allowing her to run on walls and essentially fly by falling into

Best Non-Console Zombie Games

zombies

Zombie gaming has become so popular that it essentially comprises its own category as a subset of action, adventure, and horror. Gamers love the idea of gunning down waves of the undead, and in some cases playful spins on zombie takeovers make for fun, lighthearted games as well. And the best thing is, a lot of the games in the category exist online and in app stores, which means you don't necessarily need the biggest

Lock, Fox, And Two Smoking Barrel Rolls | Star Fox Zero & Guard Review

star fox zero

Take a moment to remember when you first used a video game controller. I can imagine things didn’t go too well at first. Were you upset when things didn’t quite work out the way you imagined? Did you find yourself screaming at the screen, accusing the game of cheating and punching the nearest object to vent your frustrations such as a young sibling, maybe an innocent TV tray minding its own business? I really hope

The Battle Has Begun! | BATTLE FOR ZENDIKAR Review

The multiverse in Magic: the Gathering has been radically changed with the newest block: Battle for Zendikar. Those familiar with past lore know exactly what the return of Zendikar entails but recently new planeswalkers, like myself, are in for a whole new battle on a massive scale. Titanic creatures called the Eldrazi have been lying dormant within the plane of Zendikar, but they are silent no more. The Eldrazi have erupted from below and threaten

The Power of Imagination | Disney Infinity Inside Out Play Set Review

Just when I thought I knew all of what Disney Infinity had to offer, my world was turned Inside Out. Whereas the Twilight of the Republic play set had a very similar feel to the Toybox with combat and core gameplay, the Inside Out Play Set adds an entirely new style of gameplay: platforming. When I popped the Inside Out Play Set piece onto my Infinity portal I expected the same gameplay I got from

Back In The Game | A Journey Through The Magic The Gathering Pro Tour and Grand Prix

Thank you GNN for showing interest in my Magic: The Gathering stories. I am excited to share my 2 weeks of competitive Magic with everyone. I finished competing in the Pro Tour in Vancouver, and then I traveled to San Diego for the Grand Prix weekend. Although I did not do well in the actual Grand Prix, I dominated a huge side event and won one of the most amazing prizes, which I will talk

ELITE: DANGEROUS review from PAX SOUTH 2015

OH MY GOD! Am I excited about this game. There is just so much goodness, it is hard to know where to start. Since 1984, the Elite series has been taking combat fighting to a whole other level. Elite: Dangerous is a crowd funded game via Kickstarter that is now available to play. In the year of the space games, this one definitely takes the cake. Here is the plot of the main story:   Take control of
