Strider_Front

It took awhile, but Strider was brought back to the spotlight thanks to studio Double Helix (Killer Instinct) and oh, did they do a great job at staying true to the original content. A fast-paced download only game that keeps you hooked with non-stop action and level design that we think should be used more often in future platformers. Flailing a sword around at blazing speeds never felt this satisfying. (more…)

Gone Home cover

Indies have been getting a lot of buzz in 2013, with many games bringing a good amount of fresh experiences you hardly see in big titles priced at $60. Gone Home is one example of such freshness. It’s a game that tells a story from your character simply interacting with objects found in this eerie mansion.

I was sold when I found out how the game played, and when I was done with it, I enjoyed every minute. (more…)

BioShockInfiniteReview

I couldn’t move. I had finished BioShock Infinite and as the credits rolled, I was still soaking up everything. The goosebumps didn’t want to end. As I stood up to get a glass of water, I stepped outside and attempted to make sense of everything that had happened from start to end. Not only was this an amazing game, it has one of the best narratives I have ever experienced in a video game for a long time. This game is special. From the gameplay, the glorious setting, to the memorable characters, this is definitely a good example of a masterpiece. (more…)
