Review: Slender Man Origins 3

Published on Saturday, 23 May 2015 11:16

Written by DJ Kinsey

slender man origins 3 pic 3As an enthusiast of the horror video game and movie genre my sage advice is that if you want to enlist true frights, then the way to go is with a creepy villain instead of a traditional scary one. Slender Man seems to have this quality in spades as he is more akin to the love child between Kareem Abdul Jabbar and a scarecrow than... Read more...

  “Top Five Unexpectedly Great Games”

There is no better feeling as a gamer then when a game exceeds your expectations.

For the month of May, the GameFocus staff reflects on what video games they have played that were unexpectedly great!

Mailbag: May 18 - Bloodstained vs Bard's Tale

Published on Monday, 18 May 2015 16:22

Written by Jesse Vuksanovich

 You ask - I answer:

Dear Jesse,

With the recent announcement of Bloodstained on Kickstarter and the upcoming campaign for Bard's Tale 4 I'm at a loss for who (whom?) to fund. Whips or swords? I've wanted to get in on a Kickstarter campaign and I'm pretty excited for both of these games but is it worth it? What if the game doesn't meet its target? Or what if I end up funding something that was lousy and I'm left with egg all over my face?

Thx,
Don't want to be an egg man

Old School Style RPG Divinity: Original Sin is Coming to Consoles

Published on Monday, 18 May 2015 15:51

Written by Nolan Forth

original

Last year I was lamenting the fact that my shiny new Next-Gen console had a serious RPG deficiency. Fast forward to today and that’s certainly no longer an issue with a plethora of RPGs appearing on PS4 and Xbox One. From Lords of the Fallen, Bloodborne, and Dragon Age Inquisition to Dark Souls 2, and the Witcher 3 (out tomorrow) there is more than enough to whet any RPG fans appetite. We can add one more to the list, because the well received PC game Divinity: Original Sin will hit consoles sometime in… Read more...

Mailbag: May 10, 2015

 It's been a while, fellow gamers, and I hope you'll excuse my absence. As I write this most of my belongings are still packed in boxes (except for the PS4 and WiiU) but I am writing this from a new home and so at least one major hurdle has been crossed. In my absence we've had lots of great questions so without adieu let's get to it. Dear Jesse, I'm in my last year at high school. I'm a pretty typical guy -- I ride a horse, cut lawns for extra money, help out people where I can and hang with this girl I like. Life would be pretty ideal if not for one particular teacher -- Mr. G. -- I kind of ruined his life, but I didn't mean to. Read more

DLC Talk: Bioshock: Burial at Sea Ep. 1

Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?

DLC Talk: Dishonored - The Knife of Dunwall

Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall is an impressive little bit of DLC. I should emphasize “little” though, as it is a relatively short experience. Just when the story seems to get going it ends - or, rather, it “kind of” ends.

What's The Big Deal About Mortal Kombat X Anyways?

What's The Big Deal About Mortal Kombat X Anyways?

Well everyone, Mortal Kombat X is now available to be purchased (which I’m sure you have done) and if you keep up with video game news (which I’m sure you do), you would know that almost every single day in the lead up to its release, we were hearing about a new trailer, character reveal, or some sort of news regarding the upcoming game. I have to hand it to Mortal Kombat X’s marketing team, they did their job; it seems like every person on the planet is hyped about this game (which I’m sure you are).

But aside from a good marketing campaign, what’s the big deal about Mortal Kombat X anyways?

Apple's Most Personal Device - This Year

Apple's Most Personal Device - This Year

  Apple has finally lifted the curtain on the Apple Watch and, unsurprisingly, it looks good.  Maybe you're crunching the numbers to determine if you can afford the $13,000, 38mm 18-carat rose gold case edition or the $449.00 sport model.  No matter what you pick you'll need an Apple iPhone 5 or later running the latest version of iOS, so don't forget to figure that into the cost as well.  Before taking out a line of credit to buy the latest and greatest from Apple I'd recommend holding off and avoiding the April 24th release date altogether.

Why We Need the Worst Game Ever

Why We Need the Worst Game Ever

Maybe it wouldn't have been as bad if the sales person hadn't said, "this is our most popular seller; I can barely keep it on the shelves."  My mother and I were in the only video game store in the city.  It was in the basement of a professional building and smelled like stale cigarette smoke and BO.  For passing grade five I was rewarded with a video game.  This wasn't a decision to be made lightly; this would be one of the two games I'd get all year.  I can no longer remember the game I originally wanted but I do remember the store didn't have it.  Instead, the sales person was recommending something I'd never heard of, a little game called "Mystery Quest."
