Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Review

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Review

The online shooter market is packed full of gritty, realistic, mature shooters. Every month seemingly sees a new release trying to be the next big thing in online shooters. Understandably it comes with a raised eyebrow and a slight look of bemusement when I say that EA’s latest release is one of the most refreshing shooters in years–and it’s not even trying to be. Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is simply one of the biggest surprises in modern videogames to emerge in quite some time.

Will Halo Dominate E3 2014?

A History of Call of Duty: Achievement, Progress, & Decline

Call of Duty is one of the more curious franchises in today’s videogame landscape. The series itself was the product of a stagnated and dried out series of games that left a number of developers frustrated and bored. When Call of Duty first hit the masses, its set pieces and intense action were met with praise and admiration. Even then it took heavy influences from popular TV and films, much like it continues to do now, but back then it was more than welcomed. But when did people become tired of the CoD staples? Did people really have enough of a good thing? Or are people just being too critical?...
