Splatoon 2 Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch I wasn’t sure about Splatoon 2. I hadn’t played the first (like most I didn’t own a WiiU) and the gimmick of painting over killing seemed almost too passive. I’m happy to admit how wrong I was. Splatoon 2 is a fantastic mesh of unique ideas and style, even if it is […]

We Are Doomed Review

Platforms: Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita (reviewed), Windows, and Xbox One We Are Doomed is a chaotic twin-stick arena style shooter.

Platforms: PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 (reviewed) Blood Dragon is quite the sales pitch for Far Cry 3. While the first two Far Cry games didn’t do much that I felt like latching onto them, I never even gave the third entry a try. After putting in six or eight hours into Blood Dragon, I […]
