  • Overlooked Gem: Mafia II

    Although I’ve been a fan of the Grand Theft Auto series since playing the original game on PlayStation, open-world crime title Mafia II wasn’t on my radar until the PlayStation 3 version appeared as a free title on Sony’s PlayStation Plus service. With no expectations, I downloaded the game and tried it, and ended up being hugely impressed with what I played, enough to delete the digital version and buy my own physical copy – because I prefer things you can see and fondle, dammit! Anyway, I was surprised that the game didn’t seem to have received much attention, hence to me its status as an overlooked gem. Developed by 2K Czech and published by 2K Games, Mafia II was…

Of course, we are now in a good position to…

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Review

    It’s all been said before, of course, but the Call of Duty franchise has really transformed what people expect out of mainstream first-person shooters. Just when you think they’ve gone as far as they can, finalized gameplay in such a way as to have completely explored all the fundamental methods of creating and maintaining action, they shift and take things in a completely new direction. While it might sound like hyperbole, the truth is that Advanced Warfare is an amazing game with so many great refinements and polished touches that it’s almost revolutionary. Notice the word “almost” there…clearly, other games have previously attempted to pull off what CoD:AW does before in various areas (Crysis 2 or 3, anyone?) but to…
