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.

It seems like the zombie game rush is not going to end any time soon. It is like every month a new zombie game is released to widely mixed results. One of the most recent releases in the zombie genre is Deadlight. The easiest way to describe Deadlight is that it is a 2-D platformer along the lines of Prince of Persia with some puzzles and light melee and shooting. Most of the game involves the pla... more.

Dungeons of Dredmor is a fantastic dungeon crawler with heavy influence from a genre of games called “roguelikes”. What this means is that each character the player creates is unique and will most likely not face the same ordeals twice but once the player either beats the game with that character or (more likely than not) is defeated by the denizens of the dungeons that characters story is ove... more.

At this point the majority of gamers have heard of a game called Minecraft. Unfortunately the popularity of Minecraft has overcome the presence of other games of the "world crafting" genre. One of the more widely known games other than Minecraft in the world crafting genre is Terraria. For those who do not know what Terraria is here is an explanation. Terraria is basically a 2-D platformer with th... more.

A lot has changed in the world of Azeroth over the last few expansions. With the last expansions though, I do not think anything has changed quite as much as what Mists of Pandaria brings to the table. A little backstory for you all: I did not come into World of Warcraft until after Cataclysm; at that moment in time I just could not bring myself to play it. Then they launched the Starter Edi... more.
