E3 Microsoft Conference – A Strong Showing

Simply put, this was Microsoft’s strongest showing at E3 in years. From games to discussing the acquisitions of new studios, such as Ninja Theory, this was a focused conference and really only had one hiccup. Here are my highlights: Ori and the Will of the Wisps This was a strong start to the show as…

Hitman 2 – You’ve got red on you.

When Square Enix parted ways with IO Interactive, the future of the Hitman series was left up in the air. The first season of the rebooted Hitman series was fantastic, it featured 7 episodes, open-ended gameplay, and numerous side contracts. It had incredible replay value and for a game that was episodic in nature, there…

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – How many more Spider-Men are there?

Well…this is now my most anticipated Marvel film.  A unique art style that heavily resembles the comics it draws inspiration from, coupled with the introduction of a young Miles Morales as Spider-Man.  Into the Spider-Verse has potential to be another solid entry in the Marvel universe and possibly the best in the Marvel animated library….

Destiny 2: Forsaken – Too little too late?

Prepare yourselves Guardians Year 2 for Destiny 2, as it was for its predecessor, is going to be huge for the franchise. Like the Taken King expansion, Bungie is putting all of its chips in with the Forsaken expansion. I’ve been critical of these massive open world games because it always feels like there is…

A Spawn Reboot is on the way!

Recently a new Spawn movie was revealed to be in development and as a fan of the character I couldn’t be more excited. However, news that the movie will be a “creep” film instead of a traditional superhero film, in which the titular character is more of the monster that you barely see, is a…

Detroit Become Human – Review

What will you decide? Visually stunning and well-acted, Detroit: Become Human can be messy at times due to the melodramatic tone and tedious sections, but overall it’s a solid experience. There are some surprisingly powerful moments and it thoughtful approach to oppression and self-discovery deserves merit. The narrative exploration is impressive, featuring a sprawling script…

Moonlighter – Review

Dream Big Being a shopkeeper is honestly, really enjoyable. It’s the least stressful part of the game and you can really rip off your customers. 300 gold for a leaf?! It’s what they get for window shopping in my store. Players will acquire their goods to be sold by dungeon crawling, looting chests, and defeating…

Assassins Creed Odyssey – Cautiously Optimistic

Well, so much for thinking Ubisoft would take it’s time with it’s flagship franchise. Assassins Creed was starting to become stagnant with it’s yearly releases similar in the fashion of sports games and a certain first-person franchise. But unlike those sports game in which there is little to no adjustments made from year to year,…

Looking ahead to E3 – Microsoft needs a Homerun

It’s no secret that Microsoft needs a win. Sea of Thieves has been done well commercially, but doesn’t have the content currently to keep players engaged. It doesn’t help that it’s received mixed critical reviews and seen its player base drop since its release. State of Decay 2 is buggy and unintentionally hilarious as a…
