Metro: Last Light Review

Metro: Last Light Review

Story They say time is the fire in which we burn. This has never been made more evident than in Metro Last Light. Taking place in the scorched shadow of 21st century Russia, Metro Last Light is astonishing in how it portrays its post-apocalyptic environment. Once filled with people going about their daily business, families and their children spending time together, and the peace of content, Metro Last Light’s nuclear wasteland offers another kind of stillness. It’s an uncomfortable silence [...]

Dust: An Elysian Tail Review  

Dust: An Elysian Tail Review

2D games are often overlooked in today’s 3D rich world. Many forget that not all games looked and controlled like they do today. Dust: An Elysian Tail proves that this art-form has not died. It is alive and well and just as capable of providing entertaining gameplay and a heartfelt story as much as any big budget 3D game. What’s amazing is that Dust was designed and programmed entirely by one man, Dean Dodrill; who also happens to be self-taught. [...]

Assassin’s Creed III

Assassin’s Creed III

Assassin’s Creed III is here… There’s a new Assassin, a new setting, and a conclusion to a protagonist’s story that has spanned five games. Does Assassin’s Creed 3 live up to the series good name, ending the story of Desmond with a bang? Or does it falter and conclude with a whimper? The Assassin’s Creed series has been one to embrace evolution. Starting as a simple, “Kill these targets” game that was praised for its unique ideas, but lamented for [...]

Bastion  

Bastion

Created by Supergiant Games, a small start-up independent company including former Gamespot editor Greg Kasavin, Bastion is a must play. When was the last time a game drew you in with an ambiguous story? Do only big Triple A productions from well-known developers stick with you? Or have you ever played a new IP from a new indie company that consumed all your gaming time and kept you away from that virtual stack of games you haven’t even started? This [...]

Max Payne 3

Max Payne 3

It’s been over 10 yrs since I first experienced Max Payne on PC. I will never forget the skepticism I had when an old friend first showed it to me. It seemed cool, but it wasn’t until I saw the bullet-time moves until I was sold. It was also the first time I was actually gripped by a game’s story. Now, Rockstar games has given us Max Payne 3. How does it live up to the franchise name? Story: Max Payne as a [...]
