I have to admit, I’m pretty hopeful for what Disney could do for Star Wars. Now that George Lucas won’t completely fuck it up, we may have a chance at another decent movie. Honestly, I don’t think it can be any worse than the prequels, because those were utter shit; things can only get better […]

I have no idea who popularized this practice (probably EA), but the propagation of DLC has gotten out of hand. I remember the days of expansion packs, which were neat, reasonably priced packages that exponentially increased the game’s replay-ability.

The Walking Dead game has been an incredibly pleasant surprise for me. From the moment it was announced I expected it to just be another crappy tie-in game. How I was wrong. As soon as I got my hands on Episode One I knew it would be a series I would love. Telltale did a […]

Metro: Last Light is hopefully being released next year and it’s probably one of my most anticipated games right now. Why? Metro 2033 is one of my favorite first-person shooters of all time. Although it had some issues, Metro 2033 remains the most atmospheric shooters I’ve ever played. The audible breath of your masked character […]
