There are not many series of video games that I love more than the Assassin’s Creed series. I have played each and every single installment, from the very first, to Black Flag. With that said, I was extremely excited when Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD. I played the original, and I was curious how this HD port would turn out. Thankfully, the team at Ubisoft sent us a copy fo... more.

Normally in the industry of video games, ports do not usually go as well as the developer had intended them to. In this case, I think it went better than expected with Dementium II HD. Originally a game for the Nintendo DS system by then-developer Renegade Kid, it had a great amount of respect from the horror fans and me alike. That brings us to the present, and now an HD version in the form... more.

Imagine a world where life doesn't end with death. A world where technology has advanced to a point where upon our last breath everything we were in life is downloaded into a cloud. Upon death, we become a virtual soul, where family and friends can come and relive our memories and visit us any time they like. Now... Imagine corruption running through this cloud. This is such a story. This ... more.

I have been eying F.E.A.R. for some time now, but for one reason or another have never gotten around to playing it. I finally found time to sit down with the game and, while it is definitely dated, I had so much fun playing that I really couldn't help but sit down to write a review for it... Dated or not! At first glance, F.E.A.R. appears to be your typical “mute with a gun” first per... more.

Originally I meant to sit down and write a review for the game, The Stanley Parable, but I'm afraid that after attempting to come up with the words to do so, I've finally decided to give up. Yep, I'm afraid I've thrown in the towel. It just won't work, and I will have no part of it! That does not, however, mean that I won't be reviewing the title. I've just opted to do so in a different ma... more.

There was one game that has really set a new bar for how Mac games should be done: Metro: Last Light. In September the great people at Deep Silver announced a port to Mac, and I instantly became interested. It is not too often you get a game that looks astonishing, and plays incredible on the Mac system. It really does not take too much either to run it on OSX if you have bought a mac within the l... more.

EA has done it again with the newest expansion to the cult hit game Sims 3; this time though, we have the luxury of building our own Island Paradise! Island Paradise has to be their best “true” expansion to the Sims 3 game yet. One of the cooler new things with the Sims 3: Island Paradise is the new boating system. By boats though this is a general term, it includes houseboat, sailboa... more.

Many gamers have either played or at least heard of the Diablo series of games and have heard of the term “Diablo clone”. There are many games that have adopted the gameplay elements of the Diablo series (Defeat enemies, loot, equip, repeat) to varying degrees of success but seemingly none had managed to achieve the same level of success as the Diablo series until Torchlight was released. Whil... more.

I have always been a fan of the stealth-geared genre of games, whether it is third-person or first-person, I have a deep fondness of them. When I had originally seen Hitman: Absolution at E3 last year, my excitement grew. To be honest I had never really played the previous installments of the Hitman franchise, only because my stealth crave had been fixed. However, when Hitman: Absolution released,... more.
