The Best Games from the Wolfenstein Series

The phrase ‘gaming royalty’ might sound overly grandiose, but if this category of games does exist, then the Wolfenstein series certainly belongs in it. The first Wolfenstein game was released in 1981, and there’s a new one – Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus – scheduled for release later in 2017. That means the series has been running for a frankly…

What Makes a Good Strategy Game?

Strategy games are a massively popular genre, and for good reason. The genre has a long history with the PC, with classic games like Command & Conquer and Starcraft dominating desktops for years. These games are addictive and challenging, not to mention the cognitive benefits you get from playing them. With clients like Steam and GOG making games more accessible…

The Best Racing Games and Franchises

Regardless of platform, whether it be on one of the consoles or PC, racing games have always proven incredibly popular. Developers have been churning them out for decades now (the first true racing game – Gran Trak 10 – was released all the way back in 1974), and gamers have been more than happy to lap them up! There are…

Sudden Strike 4 Review

For essentially as long as consoles have existed, there has been an ongoing debate as to whether or not strategy games can succeed on them. RTS games, in particular, are seen as more problematic than their turn-based counterparts, due to their high-paced nature and (sometimes) emphasis on micro-management. The crux of the argument, of course, comes down to the controls.…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam Review

There are countless video game titles that try to emulate the utter chaos of a war-zone; the combat, the fire-power, the explosions, the hum of helicopters overhead. Franchises such as Call of Duty and Battlefield do a decent job of capturing some of that atmosphere while providing a solid first-person shooter. But for true life or death realism, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam has got you covered. First…

diskAshur PRO2 Review

In this day and age, with hacking and the theft of data – whether it be cloud-based or physically stored – being more prominent and widespread than ever before, protecting that data has taken on an even greater level of importance. Rather than being an afterthought, computer security has well and truly been forced to front of people’s minds. Accordingly,…

Duck Dynasty Review

Although it is a universally tacit understanding, it is worth emphasizing that Duck Dynasty is a game that should never have existed. With nothing going for it except for the fact that it is so laughably bad, it is actually fun to make fun of with friends. One wonders how this even passed the test to get the Sony seal…

Madalin Stunt Cars 2 Review

Madalin Stunt Cars 2 is a driving game without a scoring system. Nay, it’s a racing game without an official winner. Better yet, it’s a free game that features free vehicles in an open (i.e. free) world. The action can be as wild or tame as you’d like. If a sandbox driver sounds like fun, you’re right—it is. Concept Madalin…

Video Game Mysteries That Remain Unsolved

The world of gaming is full of mystery, and why shouldn’t it be. Mystery, as an entity, is a big part of video games, as many titles sell solely on the suspense that they generate. Many of these mysteries could just be there due to a glitch or to tease gamers and have a little fun. Sometimes, these are planned…

Darkest Dungeon Review

Recently I’ve been playing a game called Darkest Dungeon- or as I’ve come to think of it, “Dark Souls, RPG edition”. The game is very difficult, or at least gives the feeling of difficulty- it is not that objectives and missions are hard to complete persay- they have been, but not terribly hard. No, the hard thing about this game…

Reasons Why We Can’t Wait for Red Dead Redemption 2

When it comes to new releases, Rockstar Games sure do like to take their time. They’re one of the most profitable publishers in video games, and yet they’ve definitely resisted the urge to churn out titles over the years. Really, that’s great for us, the fans. Because over nearly two decades in business, games which have been both developed and…

The Best Open World Games

The genre of open world games took off in earnest during the early 2000’s, when rapidly advancing technology allowed developers to create the likes of GTA III and Morrowind. Fast-forward fifteen years or so, and open world games are more popular now than they’ve ever been before. Gamers want the freedom to explore a living, believable world at their own…

Throne: Kingdom at War Review: Taking Mobile Strategy to a New Level

Mobile strategy games are great, but have you ever felt like things could be a little bit more, well, interactive? Sure, the timed elements mean you have to make effective moves and continually stay engaged with the action if you want to succeed. However, when you’re on your own with no one else to turn to, this dynamic can become…

Mega Maker Review

Today I am looking at a very interesting Mega Man fangame, called Mega Maker. As the name implies, it is for Mega Man what Mario Maker is for that series- a way for you to create your own levels, hazards, and so on for Mega Man to traverse. While not an official Capcom work, I would still recommend it to…
