Top Five Shooters of 2014

Today’s feature is the Top Five Shooters of 2014 – The year of 2014 was a great one for gamers. While it lacked the grandiose releases of a Grand Theft Auto and two new consoles, it was a solid year overall.

Apotheon - Metroidvania Pottery

Apotheon – Metroidvania Pottery

Apotheon attempts to bring forward an art style never used before in gaming, that of ancient greek pottery. And what better genre to utilize than the sidescrolling adventure style of Metroid and Castlevania.

A Look Ahead-Nintendo 2015

A Look Ahead-Nintendo 2015

I believe Nintendo 2015 will be a better year for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS owners than 2014 was, which is a big statement seeing as we just received Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros, big titles. However in 2015 we have Xenoblade Chronicles X, Mario Maker, Splatoon, Yoshi’s Woolly World, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, The Legend of Zelda ...

X-Men Days of the Future Past: How Time Stood Still

X-Men Days of the Future Past: How Time Stood Still

X-Men Days of the Future Past blasted into theaters this summer and, for me, still remains one of the most remarkable films of the year.

With such iconic characters as Wolverine, Professor X, and Magneto played by equally notable cast members like Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick ...

Dargon Age Inquisition Dialogue too Black and White

Dragon Age Inquisition Dialogue too Black and White

Bioware have always been well accomplished at allowing their players to make their own choices, in dialogue and gameplay. The first thing  that I noticed with Inquisition is that the dialogue is limited in the choice that it offers the player. You have the standard good, bad and neither dialogue options (without the paragon and renegade options) but they’re so ...

Xbox and Playstation Collaboration

An Xbox and Playstation Collaboration is something that must have crossed every gamer’s mind. This may be looking far, far ahead to an ideal world but with all the complaints about Xbox and Playstation players being left out of content exclusive to the other it makes one think about a collaboration between the two. Do we really need two types ...
