Unless you’ve been living in a cave this past week, I’m sure you’ve read about the horrendous launch of Maxis and Electronic Art’s latest SimCity title. Having not played a SimCity game since SimCity 2000 so many years ago, I was pretty upset to hear that the launch went so poorly and that so many gamers were left with a purchased product plagued with issues that are still being resolved today. While there were still some outstanding harsh issues with the game, I was still willing to give it a shot.
2013 has turned out to be a hell of a year so far for successful AAA games and we’ve got another to add to the list. Released on March 5th, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix’s latest entry into the Tomb Raider series reboots the franchise to follow Lara Croft on her first expedition and tomb raid. For years the press has been spamming us with screenshots, artwork and videos showcasing the much younger, darker, would-be heroine to amp us up and for me, it was worth the wait!
If you watched my video “I suck at Dead Space 3” a few weeks ago, you certainly would have noticed that I hadn’t played the previous Dead Space games, that I had no idea what was going on, and that I was absolutely TERRIBLE at the game! For these reasons, I wasn’t all that excited for the full game to be released. I had trouble controlling my character, understanding what my abilities were and how to use them, and everything was just kicking my ass. Well, my opinion has changed drastically since then as starting from the beginning of the game put a new perspective on everything.
It’s been a while now since I’ve played a good classic JRPG. With the large amount of shooters and action games released over the past few months, I haven’t been able to get my fix. Unfortunately, when I first looked into Level 5 and Namco Bandai’s latest JRPG, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, originally released in Japan on the Nintendo DS, I thought it looked kind of stupid. I’ll tell you straight up, after playing through this, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Some neat plot twists near the end really take it from what I originally though was kind of a kids fairy tale-type of story, into something pretty special.
It’s been over four years since we last took part in Dante’s action-packed and extremely intense devil-slaying adventures. Released last week under new developer Ninja Theory, most recently known for their action game Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, DMC Devil May Cry reboots the series with a focus on a much younger, much more hot-headed Dante as he battles a new army of demons. There has been much controversy over the new direction of Dante from Ninja Theory, so is there any merit to the complaints from long-time fans, or does the new entry kick as much ass as the previous in the series?

I’ve now posted three videos describing how I capture my video game-play footage, yet those three videos receive a HUGE amount of questions every single day, so rather than continually answering the same questions over and over, I’ll go ahead and describe everything you need to know about capturing video game footage. If you have [...]
After seeing the countless trailers over the past few months and game-play footage from E3, I’ve got to say, I’ve really been hyped up for the latest Transformers game. Growing up watching the cartoon series likely had me a bit biased going into this, but as we know from the past, most movie or cartoon [...]
