We bolted for the van as fast as we could as an angry mob of the undead began to close in. We were low on ammo, one of us infected, and we needed to get back to home base to administer the plague virus cure. We were low on fuel as well but had at least enough to get back home.
Vampyr is a vampire action-RPG that is as dark and morbid as it is fantastic and expansive. Now, while that praise is certainly earned, during my 25 or so hours with the title, the game is not without its many problems.
Ever since Destiny 2 launched, the community has been very vocal about the state of the game. Its first expansion, Curse of Osiris, was not well received, and several recent updates have come across as nothing more than half measures. Much of the player base has dropped off and moved on to other games and this latest expansion may not quite have what it takes to lure everyone back, at least presently.
I've played my fair share of bad games; mechanically broken ones, or those that are barely capable of keeping your attention. I've played numerous titles that have cumbersome controls, countless glitches, and stories and voice acting so bad you have to wonder what publisher would want it being associated with their brand.
I've been loosely following the game during its development, but mostly as a passerby, never once putting much stock into being excited about playing it. After completing my first playthrough, I can safely say that Detroit: Become Human is one of the best games I've played this year.
Had it not been for a Youtube video showcasing a series of new releases this past week, I would have completely missed out on Omensight, a title that kept me entertained for hours, and a game I strongly recommend adding to your library.
Back in the summer of 2013, Santa Monica Studios Creative Director, Cory Barlog, had the insurmountable task of starting work on the latest iteration of the beloved God of War series. This was a franchise that helped define the PlayStation 2, some 15 years ago.
I'll most definitely be approaching this review with a very unpopular opinion; I didn't care for the original Shadow of the Colossus. For the efforts made by Team ICO, the title sharing their very namesake; ICO, was a vastly superior game, in my opinion.
Whether it's Marvel vs Capcom or Street Fighter and Tekken, seeing several massive franchises coming together is a truly spectacular event. While it has been years since I have played a BlazBlue title, I was eager to jump into this latest installment with the addition of Persona, Under Night In-Birth, and of course, RWBY.
A few years ago, I attended Pax Prime and interviewed Monster Couch about their upcoming game, Die for Valhalla!. I was impressed by the art style, the fun pick-up and play nature of the game, and the variety that was shown off for each Viking class.
Hyrule Warriors, on the Nintendo Switch, is the third time that I have played the title, and frankly, the phrase "third time's the charm" is the perfect way to describe this latest and most definitive version.
I always enjoy checking out the newest releases on the eshop as I've discovered some fantastic games I've never heard of. Upon one such search, I found Wizard of Legend. Despite its unoriginal name, it looked interesting and so I gave it a shot.
I never went to Prom. It just wasn't something I was into. I was more or less a social outcast at school and while my education didn't have me learning alongside a gorgon, vampire, or a poltergeist, I almost wish it would have. Monster Prom is an engaging character-based dating sim that made me chuckle during each and every encounter with its fantastic cast of characters.
It's hard to imagine that the original Deadpool almost didn't happen. Its test footage "leak" was the catalyst to having Fox, who owns the movie rights to the character, finally knowing exactly what they had.
Depending on your point of view, Infinity War will either live up to the hype or not quite hold up to your expectations. While the film has been somewhat divisive among its fan base, it still stands as one of the best received MCU films to date.
Ready Player One, is at its core, a celebration of pop culture. Whether it's movies, cartoons, video games, or old candy commercials, there is very little that escapes at least some sort of mention or visual cue during the 2 hour and 19 minute film.
During the entire build-up to Director Roar Uthaug's film reboot of Tomb Raider, many fans had brought up the original Angelina Jolie pair of films as a comparison, assuming those movies, on some level, served as a baseline of quality for future said comparisons.
