WDM 101 1920x1080

Fan favorite from both The Walking Dead comics and television series, Michonne is the center of a mini-series within Telltale Games' own zombie universe based on the critically acclaimed franchise.  With the first two season in their The Walking Dead franchise centering on new characters to the world (specifically Lee and Clem) it may strike the more casual zombie affectionado in the nostalgia bone to see Telltale Games focus on a...

Lego Marvel Avengers Review

LEGO Avengers

There are few things that kids (and big kids) can resist more than super heroes and Lego. So it is little wonder that the Lego video game franchise has heavily mined this territory with titles featuring DC and Marvel’s biggest spandex clad heroes in zany brick form. Enter Lego Marvel Avengers, a title that follows the exploits of Marvel’s best known super group using the first two Avengers films as the narrative backbone. Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk (plus those other less interesting characters from the films) destroy bricks, build improbable objects and employ tons of sight gags as per the Lego formula.

Review: The Witness (PC, PS4)

Published on Tuesday, 02 February 2016 07:57

witness2

It seemed like The Witness was the only game on people’s radars leading up to its release. This, of course, was refreshingly exciting, considering that indie titles don’t typically get this strong of a reaction. I took a gander at the trailers when they were first posted - and found the game to look absolutely stunning - but wasn’t hooked in. Since playing, I’ve developed an appreciation for The Witness that wasn’t previously present.

Why I Haven't Committed to Buying Digital Games

Why I Haven't Committed to Buying Digital Games

Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.

Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.

Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.

PlayStation VR is Everything I Hoped For (and More!)

PlayStation VR is Everything I Hoped For (and More!)

In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.

The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
