Marvel’s Midnight Suns Review: Exhausting Yet Charming

It’s been three days since a goth witch with a cute haircut pulled you out of a tomb. You hear the Abbey waking up, complete with the usual sounds of bickering, wisecracks, and your Superhero Twitter feed buzzing. You’re eager to get the next few mission to, you know, save the world, but your laundry list of chores grows long. You’ve got to pet the dog, listen to Iron Man be a dick, train in the yard, and figure out where the fire gem was hidden to unlock cosmetics. Endless tasks; that’s the vibe of Marvel’s Midnight Suns.


‘Desperados III’ Review: A Big Damn Onion

A wise man once told me that while getting to your destination is nice, the journey there is the true reward in the end. Spoiler: It’s me, I am that wise man. At the core, Desperados III is a Rube Goldberg machine masquerading as a spaghetti western. It’s the video game equivalent of a packed freeway, with you being a jumped-up motorcyclist who has a perpetual hard-on for “shooting the gap.” You’ve got to be fast, accurate, and adaptable, or this one may not be for you. I beat this game in 40 hours; here are my thoughts.


Control Ultimate Edition Review: How to Get a Director Job in 30 Seconds

Control Ultimate Edition is a bit of a strange one; I’ll come right out of the gates with that notion. Numerous people in my life applaud Control, and others have gotten very frustrated with it. As I played it for my review, I could absolutely see both camps’ merits. It’s a detailed narrative/world that didn’t engage with me; it’s intricate yet simultaneously straightforward in terms of progression, and it has a few satisfying gameplay elements that failed to hook me for more than a few hours at a time. I beat this game in 25.1 hours; here are my thoughts.


‘Days Gone’ Review: Books and Their Covers

I’m going to come clean; I bought this game because I thought I’d hate it. Out of the box, Days Gone read as “an open world game with shallow mechanics that tried to be too badass and edgy.” With bikers vs. cultists vs. bandits in a zombie apocalypse as the setting, can you blame me? For the first two hours, the game did nothing to suppress my acid reflux, but the more I engaged with it, the more pleasantly surprised I became.


Horizon Zero Dawn Review: It’s Not the Worst

Horizon Zero Dawn (Guerilla Games/Sony Interactive Entertainment) is a post-apocalyptic merger of “Zelda:Breath of the Wild” and Transformers. You play as Aloy, a former outcast tasked with solving the problems of the community that ostracised her. The twist that differentiates this product from the pile of open-world, map clearing, objective hunting games is that in this one, the large majority of your obstacles will be in the form of giant machines shaped like animals. These machines are big, these machines are aggressive, and these machines want to kick the tar out of you.


WD_BLACK D30 Game Drive SSD Review: Speedy Memory Expansion for Most Gaming Rigs with a Few Caveats

Xbox systems come with 512GB to 1TB user memory, and PlayStation systems come with 500GB or 1TB user memory. Even with no games installed on either gaming console, the device’s software and systems will use some of that stated user memory. Considering that the average Xbox and PlayStation games require 40GB of memory for storage, it’s easy to see how memory can suddenly become a very precious commodity once you start loading games to either console. Rather than picking and choosing, or worse, deleting games, the WD_BLACK D30 Game Drive SSD proposes itself as a solution.

I Don’t Know About You, but I Actually Enjoy NBA2k20

Over the past two weeks the world has been in an uproar about NBA 2k20, a basketball video game that comes out yearly with what could be considered minor gameplay changes, but updated rosters. However, minus a few grievances, NBA 2k20 has been my favorite of the franchise in recent years.



Sony’s Latest Scandal: Bricked PlayStation 4s

Throughout my life, two interests have been constant standbys: superheroes and video games. So when Sony announced a massive open-world, PlayStation-exclusive Spider-man game, I had to have it. But there was only one problem: I didn’t have a PlayStation 4, and buying a new one wasn’t in the budget.


Sony Boards the Nostalgia Train with the Playstation Classic, Coming in December!

While I have always played games on a PC, as a gamer there is no denying the impact and appeal of the original Sony PlayStation. Launched in Japan in late 1994 and worldwide in 1995, the Playstation signaled a new age in console gaming: 3D graphics, data stored on CD, and a huge wave of third-party support from software developers who had already started working with those technologies for the PC.

Now they have announced an Enhanced Edition of the game including ports to PS4 and XBOX One!

Playstation Mobile Closing Storefront in July 2015, Shutting Down November

Playstation Mobile was the initiative Sony launched in late 2012 allowing ‘certified’ Android devices to play certain Playstation games. It started with Sony-Ericsson and the XPeria Play, and later extended to a number of HTC devices. However, in 2014 version 2.0 of the service was limited to the PS Vita and TV, and now the entire service is shutting down.
