Rebel Galaxy (PC)

Space Battle

The space genre was dead for many years.  Now, all of a sudden we’ve got Elite: Dangerous, and No Man’s Sky and, perhaps, Star Citizen.  That might be a weak line up for shooters, but it’s a renaissance for the space sim.  In to this comes Rebel Galaxy.   It’s sort of a cross between …

Game of the Week: Infamous Second Son

I still think Infamous was better than Prototype. There were a lot of cool things in Prototype, but throwing them all together didn’t create a great game. Of course, I might be bitter that we got Prototype instead of a follow up to Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. Infamous had its share of problems, but it managed …

Mad Max

Mad Max is an open world action adventure game set in the wasteland world Max inhabits in the movies.  Though it has some locations and links to Fury Road, the story is not from any of the movies.  It’s another odyssey on Max’s journey to find peace.  Of course, it’s bleak, violent, cruel and post …

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Impressions

I briefly touched on the fact that Shadow is a fun, compelling game. There are bugs and flaws, but he total experience rises so far above them that they seem inconsequential. The game realizes its goal of making you feel part of an epic adventure and tied in to the saga of the rings. So …

Rocket League Announced for PS4

I’ve mentioned before that Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars for the PS3 was one of the surprise PSN hits for my family.  It’s certainly one of the games that got the most hours last generation.  In essence, it was soccer played with RC cars that could jump, boost and blow each other up. Well, I’m ecstatic …

Instant Update: Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor (PC)

In short, I can’t stop playing.  Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is a fun, compelling game.  It thrusts you behind enemy lines with a wicked skill set that just keeps growing.  You constantly get more deadly.  While few of the parts are shiny and new, they’re put together masterfully.  I grabbed the PC version because …

Instant Update: Injustice Gods Among Us

I picked up Injustice: Gods Among Us (PS4) on a PSN sale recently.  I’m definitely more in the Capcom/Street Fighter camp than the Mortal Kombat camp, but I’ve enjoyed them as a diversion.  I also enjoy superhero games.  There are far too few good ones. I haven’t had much time to play, but I did …

Newsblurb: Frozen Endzone is now Frozen Cortex

Call it Frozen Cortex.  Apparently the developers were tired of the ‘Frendzone’ jokes and the confusion about the game simulating American Football.  The robot players and randomly generated field weren’t enough to distinguish it from Madden.  Or maybe the NFL isn’t as universal as we Americans like to think it is.  Regardless, anything from the …

Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn

I had been meaning to pick up Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, but it got hard to find.   For a while people were asking outrageous prices.  The prices have finally come down.  I was considering getting it when a bunch of reviews for Gundam Reborn started showing up.  I found it interesting that many of them …
