Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void – Review

blizzcon-2014-starcraft-2-legacy-of-the-void-is-ba_d7q9.1920

Publisher: Blizzard Entertainment Developer: Blizzard Entertainment Platforms: PC Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void is the second and final standalone expansion in Blizzard’s Starcraft II Trilogy. Though, to call it an expansion simply does not do this game justice. While at first myself and many other players may have felt short-changed at the copy/paste nature of the game’s mechanics from the ...

Steam Controller Review – Round 2

Especially when it was announced that it’d work on any game, controller-enabled or not. When I first saw what would become the controller I now hold in my hand, it all clicked. It made sense, in theory….In practice? ...

Resident Evil 4 – Way Back Review (Video)

Resident Evil 4

Resident Evil 4 is…well you probably already know all about this game. Developed and published by Capcom in 2005, RE4 was a huge smash hit critically and financially. Shinji Mikami took the established franchise of fixed-camera survival horror and zombies, and turned it on its head by making this mainline installment an over-the-shoulder action shooter. Full of thrilling set-pieces, gore, and ...
