The Banner Saga (PS4) Review

I can count on one hand the amount of times that a game has effected me so deeply that I had put the controller down and step away for a bit. This weekend playing Stoic’s Viking themed tactical RPG The Banner Saga, which makes its way to consoles this week, is the first time since Spec Ops:…

Pony Island review : Night-mare

  Pony Island masquerades as the kind of light-hearted auto-running adventure available on any mobile device, but it’s genuine narrative is shrouded in nefarious mystery. Demons have infested the coin-operated arcade game known as Pony Island. Their objective is to trap the souls of players (including your own) in a seemingly harmless, yet never-ending game about a purple pony…

Rebel Galaxy Review (Xbox One) – Space Diamond in the Rough

Rebel Galaxy is a game of pretty drastic changes.  Beginning behind the wheel of a hulking space cruiser, speeding past star systems, carrying a hold-full of space junk and blaring salty country/rock tunes. Whether you’re picking up jobs and bounties from the various space stations scattered around the map, looting unsuspecting passersby, living the life…

Amplitude (2015) Review : We Didn’t Start the Fire

Before Harmonix and Activision went their separate ways and Rock Band was a glimmer in Harmonix‘s eye, Amplitude challenged players to mix up their favorite songs by giving them (and up to 3 friends) control of musical laser spacecraft, propelled along a glowing musical track.

Tuesday’s Trinity: Enter Lex Corp (12/22/2015)

Seasonal GEAR Once the new Lex Corp GEAR set landed in Survivor mode last week, the question became whether or not the Fourth World GEAR set would still be available. It’s not. As a result, the GEAR sets that have been advertised (Fourth World, Lex Corp, League of Assassins) appear to be seasonal. The other…

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End CG Trailer

A new trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been released. Although we’re all excited about the game, one can’t help but swoon to the wonderful “Where Is My Mind?” track from the Pixie’s Sufer Rosa album. It’s one of the best ballads of the 80′s (and EVER!) and it’s being rediscovered today. The…

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review

Stitching the Universe Together This is a hit and miss affair. By the time C-3PO and R2-D2 show up, the entire film begins to loose its “reboot” form, and it heads into full-on “remake” mode. However, the new robot star in the film, BB-8, and its subsequent loyalty to its missing Rebellion pilot and master,…
