Review - Total War: Attila

Published on Monday, 02 March 2015 09:29

Seeing its release only a year and a half after Total War: Rome II, Total War: Attila is yet another turn-based strategy game in the already prosperous series. Once again, the Roman Empire is brought to life, allowing players to take ultimate control in expanding and defending European territories. Being a fan of all types of video games, I've grown apart from turn-based strategy games in recent years, simply for the reason that there are so many genres out there to play now. With that said, they will always hold a special place in my heart, and getting the opportunity to play the latest offering in the Total War series was a delightful treat. The sheer thought of booting up the game to build my Empire and conquering all that stands in my way admittedly put a smile on my face; but unfortunately, not all gaming experiences are positive, which became painfully evident with my eventual interaction with Total War: Attila.

Why We Need the Worst Game Ever

Published on Saturday, 28 February 2015 19:30

Written by Jesse Vuksanovich

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."

Evolve Toronto Launch Event

Last night as the clock ticked down to the midnight release of the highly anticipated 4v1 monster hunting extravaganza known as Evolve, Xbox and EB Games threw a launch party in Toronto to celebrate the game's imminent release.  Attendees stepped off the sixth floor elevator and were instantly greeted with some thick foliage and monster footprints.  It appeared that the downtown loft space had been magically transformed to the planet Shear, complete with staff decked out in garb ready for some big game hunting.  Ammon belts, camo and other accessories straight from Ted Nugent's closet were the threads and animal skulls, furs and weaponry adorned the walls.

Why Buying Amiibo Might Be A Bad Idea

A New Challenger Approaches

With the exception of the Virtual Boy I've owned every gaming system released by Nintendo.  I considered myself well-versed in what the company had to offer until I started hearing about amiibos.   The official website didn't help clear up my confusion.  "Discover the Power Inside" greets vistors upon arrival. Inside of what?  Do the amiibos do something?  Can they move around like animatronic robots or are they Nintendo's real life version of chibi-robo?
