Review: Alone in the Dark (iOS)

Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection

The Hyperdimension Neptunia series is one of the most unique video game worlds out there and that is because it is all about the previous generation’s console war. Now while every other game has been a JRPG, the series PlayStation Vita debut couldn’t be farther from the source material since Producing Perfection is an idol simulator.

Review: Daylight

I often liken fans of the survival horror genre to someone dying of thirst in the desert. Occasionally that person will chance upon an oasis, a beacon of hope in an otherwise barren landscape. I’ll admit, I thought Daylight, the first commercially released game to utilize Unreal Engine 4, would be that oasis. Unfortunately, it was but a mirage.

Review: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Reviewing a game like Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is incredibly difficult. On one hand, it is up to me, the reviewer to assess it’s value for the consumer, you, and whether or not you should spend your hard-earned cash on it. On the other, it is also up to me to critique it as a game, a task that some may argue has nothing to do with how much a game costs. After all, a game’s price is not eternal, eventually it will drop. Thus I’ve decided to ignore the price as a factor in my determination of this game’s score, leaving it up to you to decide the monetary value.

Review: Proteus

Proteus is one of the few games I picked up during my Playstation Network winter sale binge. Developed by Ed Key and David Kanaga this artistic odyssey leaves the player, or viewer I should say, with more questions than answers. With a minimalistic art style sprinkled with a musical undercurrent, this journey makes you want to believe it has more to offer.
