The Pillars of the Earth: Book One

Man, life was hard in the middle ages. Especially when you have to give birth. In the snow. And your husband has no clue what to do. This is pretty much how useless I was playing as Tom Builder in the prologue of The Pillars of the Earth. Watching my wife bleed all over the ground, I finally had enough wits...

Agents of Mayhem Review

I’m a big fan of developer Volition’s Saints Row series of games with their satirical and larger than life style and absurdly hilarious missions, so when I was given the opportunity to review Volition’s new game, Agents of Mayhem, I jumped at the chance. Agents of Mayhem is an open world, 3rd person shooter...

Rise of the Tomb Raider

I’ve scrapped so many drafts for this review, but I really want to give Rise of the Tomb Raider the justice it deserves. It’s a spectacular game. It has a well-written story played by outstanding actors set in an open world that isn’t needlessly filled with pointless sidequests. There are ...

Mass Effect: Andromeda

In absolutely everything it does, this game reminds me of Mass Effect. It feels like Mass Effect. From the awkward character movement to the hours spent talking to all the NPCs, Mass Effect Andromeda is definitely Mass Effect. As I expected when I first opened the game, half the time I spent playing was tal...

Styx: Shards of Darkness

When it comes to a stealth game, Cyanide Studios has put together a combination of elements that from the get-go feels surprisingly intuitive and believable. In this follow-up from the first Styx game you play a smart-mouthed goblin assassin who has a few tricks up his sleeve when it comes to getting what h...

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

The latest instalment to the Ghost Recon series, Wildlands takes the classic tactical shooter and throws it into a massive (really massive) open world. After a single American agent is captured and tortured, the Ghosts are sent in to take down a big drug cartel in Bolivia. It’s not a bad game, but it’s not ...

For Honor

For Honor is the totally historically accurate tale of Knights versus Vikings versus Samurai. It’s a “complicated hack-and-slash” where the tactical mind is not only needed in your approach to a group of enemies but also in the middle of the fight. So don’t go into this game thinking it’s gonna be a cake-wa...

Watch Dogs 2

I’ve been speeding down this stretch of road for some time now, grinning widely as I miss passing vehicles by a hair. The radio was blasting out of my awesome convertible as I came into an urban area and drifted around corners. It was around one of these corners that I smashed headlong into my first crash. ...

Overcooked

The Onion Kingdom is in danger and only the finest cooking can save it! “If we are the Onion Kingdom’s last hope, I feel like they didn’t think through their contingency plan very well,” I think as the kitchen goes up in flames. Another order for a burger comes in and my husband, the...

Doom

Doom. The word jumped out at me from the case, screaming my inevitable fate and the chances of my surviving the next hour or so. I had absolutely no idea what I was getting into. I was told it was a horror shooter, and I hate horror games. I haven’t finished The Last of Us (another game I haven’t finished. ...

Far Cry Primal Review

The latest installment in the Far Cry series does a bit of a jump. Instead of hang gliding in Asia, getting attacked by surprisingly aggressive honey badgers, or constantly having to juice yourself up with malaria medicine, we’ve gone way back into the past to when elephants were hairier, collecting human e...
