DMC: Devil May Cry Deserved Better – Rebooting Fan’s Hate

DMC: Devil May Cry Deserved Better – Rebooting Fan’s Hate

Fans can be great. They can enhance franchises, allowing creators to get an idea where the next game is heading. They’ll purchase a game without question, supporting it to no end. But what happens when those same fans become overly attached to a franchise in decline? Reboots are nothing new in any media. When a IP has reached its limits, but still holds potential in other areas, a reboot is the logical answer. Devil May Cry was hardly the perfect franchise. The first entry was drenched in early 2000′s slickness and themes. Dante was the coolest guy rocking a emo/anime hair cut in video games. Praised for its silky smooth...

One of 2015′s Best PC Games Is Heading To Consoles

One of 2015′s Best PC Games Is Heading To Consoles

Appearing on a number of best games of 2015 lists, Party Hard made quite a name for its self. The tongue-in cheek slasher simulator garnered healthy sales and praises after its PC release. Developer TinyBguild Games, also known for Punch Club, is bringing the party to consoles. Party Hard is set for release on both Xbox One and PS4 later this year. Party Hard is a fair mix of strategy, stealth and silliness, resulting in some pretty hilarious moment. The PC version was packed with various levels and unlockables, encouraging players to experiment and play around. Each level possessed its own sense of character, keeping the experience fresh. Planning paths...

Firewatch Is A Triumph In Crafting Human Relationships

Firewatch Is A Triumph In Crafting Human Relationships

Firewatch succeeds at many things, but it excels in one area in particular. Many games have tried to break through the notion that the player is not just playing a game, they’re experiencing something much more human. It’s not rare for a number of games to batter their players with forced attempts at drama and emotion. Overly dramatic scenes and exchanges we see in TV soap operas. Firewatch does not do this, it’s much more organic. The conversations between Firewatch’s two main characters don’t come off as acted. There’s no awkward wording or stumbling attempts to build drama. Henry and Delilah exchange words like two human beings, not like two...

A Beautiful Mysterious Modern Classic – Firewatch Review (PC/PS4)

A Beautiful Mysterious Modern Classic – Firewatch Review (PC/PS4)

*Review based on PC version*   Narrative video games are nothing all that new these days. These types of games offer experiences that others rarely can. It’s a very risky style, the smallest fault can profoundly effect the entire experience. With this in mind, approaching Campo Santo’s Firewatch was a curious affair. Firewatch wastes no time when it comes to crafting its story. The initial 45 minutes is spent world building, painting the picture for the player to appreciate it. There’s no cold opening that leaves people asking questions, nor is a basic motive made  crystal clear. The only thing that is known, is what led protagonist Henry to working...

Rainbow Six: Siege Black Ice Update Causes Horrific Bugs

Rainbow Six: Siege Black Ice Update Causes Horrific Bugs

The latest Rainbow Six: Siege update has fixed, tweaked and added a number of things. Thatcher finally has a shotgun, objectives are listed on Operator selection screens and there’s a nice new map. It’s not all that’s been added, there’s a few bugs and glitches currently doing the rounds. While a few bugs and glitches were to be expected, some of these new issues are pretty bad. The first major bug is head shots do little to no damage at times. Pounding bullets into someone’s skull should, and used to, kill them. Since the Black Ice update, headshots have became utterly inconsistent. As you would assume, the headshot issue is...

Can Ubisoft Handle The Division’s Launch?

Can Ubisoft Handle The Division’s Launch?

The Division is to be the next big release, mostly down to the hype train rolling around. It’s not without credit either, a new IP with a pretty ambitious concept is worthy of hype. My main concerns aren’t exactly with the game itself, more with Ubisoft. Given the game is built for online play, Ubisoft doesn’t have a reputation for handling online games all that well. Sever outages during the initial launch week always seem to be a issue. The recent release of Rainbow Six: Siege showcased a number of weakness when it came to Ubisoft and online play. Matchmaking was barely stable for the first few weeks, with a...

How Good Is Rainbow Six: Siege’s New Map?

How Good Is Rainbow Six: Siege’s New Map?

Rainbow Six: Siege’s first major update is officially out, and there’s plenty of changes afoot. The minor things like stating the map and game type during the Operator select are warmly welcomed. It’s the new map that has everyone excited, well aside from the new additions to the roster , but is it any good? After 10-15 matches on Yacht, there’s a few things to look over, mainly in terms of if the map is any good or not. In truth, it all depends on what team you’re on. Yatcht is Siege’s hardest map to attack by a country mile. It’s not a bad thing, if anything the challenge is...
