Uncharted™ 4 Game Note

Pixel by Pixel Perfection

It will be hard to view any game with the same eyes after having finished Uncharted 4. Naughty Dog have once again raised the bar, quite substantially… again. For one thing they have undoubtedly proven that it’s no longer the case that a game’s graphics are primarily influenced by the hardware specs of the machine […]

The Bureau

Partially Declassified

We’re selective about the titles we play, as playing through a game is definitely a longer endeavour than most other forms of entertainment and we don’t have access to an unlimited supply of time. That’s the context in which, in retrospect, The Bureau is a unique game. It’s an incredible mishmash of elements seemingly created […]

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 […]

An Ageless Underwater Utopia

We started BioShock, the first of the series, yesterday and so far played through its first hours. It truly is a unique game that’s atmosphere, gameplay and story really stand out. Even though graphically it shows its age, what’s remarkable about it, even after 7 years in which the gaming industry has progressed immensely, is […]

Destiny Beta

Destiny Beta

Downloaded and played the Destinity Beta for a few hours, earlier today. First impression was that it’s a really well implemented shooter, in terms of game mechanics and gameplay, but it’s really lacking story-wise. The plot and the background story feel shallow and naive and thus I lost my interest in the game overall. The […]

Alan Wake's American Nightmare

Light And Bullets – An American Nightmare

At first, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, seemed like a game with a story made up of a mix of clichés, with an above average gameplay resulting from its memorable game mechanics. However, after the initial couple of hours or so, from between the cracks of the clichés, truly well thought out, rare ideas emerged. There […]

Borderlands2-Simple

Pandora’s Greatest

Completed Borderlands 2, the campaign and all its side missions. 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 […]

Bulletstorm

Kill with Skill in Bulletstorm

The Bulletstorm campaign is done. Considering what it is (basically a brainless shooter) it was relatively entertaining as the addition of the skill kills kept me engaged. Regardless of what the pseudo-story might tell you(a)Blah, blah, blah… kill… blah, blah, blah – Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, the skill kills are actually the main objective […]
