Bioshock Infinite-960

The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship

I’m aware that nostalgia is a powerful thing, but still, I have to make note of the fact that I recently saw the results of a poll conducted by a popular gaming community (True Achievements) in order to determine the best games of the last generation. The results of the poll determined that BioShock was […]

South Park TSOT

The 15 Hour Episode

Given that we regularly tune in to the latest South Park episode, I can attest to the fact that there’s usually two kinds of humour present in the show, cheaper toilet humour and smarter humour coupled with thought out, insightful, unique opinions, so rare in popular culture. And while the first type of humour can […]

Skyrim - Dragonborn

North, North of Skyrim

After 430 hours of gameplay I don’t think I want to delve into a review of the entire Skyrim experience. What I want to do however, is write a few words on Dragonborn, Skyrim’s third and final DLC. We played through the second part, or better yet, the final two thirds of the expansion these […]

The combat and platforming system were well done and well […]

Borderlands2-Simple

Done so in two sittings, as the first time around (more than a month and a half ago) I lost my enthusiasm for comparing and trading loot at some point. At first, we were put-off by the game’s visual style and promo materials and weren’t […]

Console Strategy At Its Best

Started playing XCOM: Enemy Unknown a couple of days ago. At first, this new type of game took a bit of getting used to, after a long stretch of action-adventure\shooter games, but it’s become pretty captivating afterwards. The combat system is very well implemented and ported to consoles and you don’t feel awkward at all […]
