*Note: This review is based on my experience with the Xbox 360 version of the game. I felt I should put this in because I experienced a number of technical issues with the game and it is possible that the next-gen version isn’t as buggy.
I’m not a big fan of racing games. It is rather rare that I actually decide to play one, but on the occasions that I do I always go for arcade racers over simulation ones. I enjoy going insanely fast and being on the verge of losing control while also slamming into the guy beside me in the hopes that he will wipe out. Continue Reading
Every year there are tons of awesome games that get released and we always hear about them well in advanced (sometimes a little too far in advance *cough* The Last Guardian *cough*). So, we already know most of the major games that we will be playing this year and this is my personal list of the ones I am most excited for. Turns out it is pretty hard to rank your excitement for games and an awesome trailer or a demo tomorrow could change up the ranking, but as of right now this is where everything stands for me.

Gears of War was a defining franchise for this generation of gaming and quickly became Microsoft’s biggest exclusive series outside of Halo, having grossed well over a billion dollars in revenue. With the Xbox One almost here, many fans have been wondering whether or not we can expect a Gears game in the next generation.
During the Q&A section of EA’s second quarter 2014 financial earnings call, EA’s Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen put recent rumours about TitanFall eventually coming to the PlayStation 4 to rest by stating that TitanFall will be exclusive to Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC “for the life of the title”. Vince Zampella, General Manager of Respawn Entertainment, has tweeted that as far as the TitanFall franchise is concerned the exclusivity deal is tied to “just this release”. Meaning that even though there is no hope for PlayStation fans to get the first TitanFall, TitanFall 2 has the potential to be an entirely different story.
Asura’s Wrath comes to us from the collaboration between CyberConnect2, creators of the .hack and Naruto games, and Capcom. This game is quite distinct both in its artistic style as well as the way its combat is performed. Stepping outside the box and taking chances like CyberConnect2 did can lead to a fresh and interesting experience, but can also lead to a game that just doesn’t work. So, which path did Asura’s Wrath head down?
The Alan Wake series is as strange and backward as the world on which it is based. After the first game came out, not without a truckload of promotional extras to try and get as much attention as they could, the game just sort of vanished. There were those two DLCs sure, but after the web series and books that accompanied the main game’s release, it all seemed kind of muted. Anyway, after the main game ended on a cliff hanger, the developers promised that the story would be continued in DLC.
This DLC would bridge the gap between the end of the first game and the eventual second Alan Wake title. Well, it finally looks like the second stand alone Alan Wake title is on the horizon, but it’s just not in a form that we might have expected.
I was lamenting reviewing Assassins Creed: Revelations even though I had volunteered to do it, in my eagerness to write up a review I hadn’t considered something rather obvious. At this point, you either know if you like the Assassins Creed series or not don’t you? Revelations is the final installment in the story of Ezio Auditore de Firenze, assassin extraordinare, descendant of Altair and ancestor of Desmond Miles. He has been one of the protagonists of Assassins Creed for the last three installments, Assassins Creed 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations, as well as explains what Altair did with his life after the events of Assassins Creed.
