Review – Far Cry 4

When it comes to First Person Shooters, you typically expect a lot of competitive online multiplayer where you run around, alone or with a team, trying to blast your opponent into oblivion. That’s why Far Cry 4 is so different. Sure, the competitive multiplayer component is present, but the single player campaign is so well […]

Review – Watch Dogs

Already boasting more than four million sales, you’ve inevitably heard of Ubisoft’s newest game Watch Dogs.

Review – Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag

Preview – The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot

The isometric dungeon-crawling RPG is one that’s wildly popular, though the Diablo and Torchlight series are probably the most popular right now. Competing against titles like that can be daunting, particularly with how rabidly loyal gamers are to their particular franchises, which is why when a new dungeon-crawler is released, it needs to have a […]
