Quick Daily Review #75: 700 Sundays (2014)

April 19, 2015 // 0 Comments

700 Sundays (2014) Starring: Billy Crystal Billy Crystal brought his long running one man show ‘700 Sundays’ that eulogizes his father and pays homage to his childhood. This one man show is above all else, a nostalgic trip to a time and place in this country that no longer exists, and perhaps never truly existed at all in the way it is remembered. But to here Crystal tell it, you’d never doubt it for a second. Crystal’s story is nothing if not fascinating. His father was a big time band leader in the days of Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, all who befriend the young Crystal as a [...]

Review: Madden NFL 15

August 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

Madden NFL 15 (PS4 [Reviewed], Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360) Developer: EA Tiburon Publisher: EA Sports Genre(s): Football, Sports Released: August 26, 2014 ESRB Rating: E – Everyone I played and reviewed last year’s Madden NFL 25 on PS3 when it released. That game later came to PS4 and Xbox One, but as I didn’t get a PS4 until May, I didn’t experience last year’s Madden game on the current gen systems. So the first thing I noticed when getting into a game on Madden NFL 15 was just how much better it looks versus last year’s game on PS3. It simply looks amazing, [...]

Review: The Last of Us Remastered

August 12, 2014 // 4 Comments

The Last of Us Remastered (PS4) Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment America Genre(s): Survival, Third Person Shooter Released: July 29, 2014 ESRB Rating: M – Mature The Last of Us was an undeniable hit when it landed a year ago on PS3, both with PS3 owners and critics. The game received perfect scores galore (including from me) and over 200 Game of the Year awards (again, including mine). For me, it was one of the swan songs for the PS3. It was no surprise then earlier this year when The Last of Us Remastered was announced for PS4. After all, the system has been [...]

Rogue Legacy (PS4 [Reviewed], PS3, PS Vita, PC) Developer: Cellar Door Games Publisher: Cellar Door Games Genre(s): Roguelike, 2D Platformer Released: July 29, 2014 (PlayStation Systems), June 27, 2013 (PC) ESRB: T – Teen Rogue Legacy was a critical hit when it released on PC a little over a year ago, and today Cellar Door Games have brought their hit title to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita with cross-buy and cross-save. Rogue Legacy is now available on the PlayStation Store for $16.99, and that’s a great price since you’re getting it for three systems and because the game is superb. [...]

You begin your journey in The Swapper emerging from an escape pod and boarding the doomed Space Station Theseus. Within minutes, you’ll [...]

Review: Unrest

July 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

Unrest (PC) Developer: Pyrodactyl Games Publisher: Kiss LTD Genre: Adventure RPG Released: July 23, 2014 ESRB: Not Rated Unrest is an RPG that is vastly different than anything I would usually play. There’s no real combat in the game and there are no puzzles to solve. There’s no leveling up or experience gained. There’s not even one main character to play as. Unrest is set in ancient India during a time of riots and general unrest (hence the name). You’ll play as several different characters throughout the game, each broken up into their own chapter(s). You’ll [...]

Genre(s): Twin-stick Shooter Released: July 15, 2014 (PlayStation Systems), June 11, 2014 (Steam) ESRB Rating: M – Mature If you own a PlayStation system and are a fan of retro style top down shooters then you’re in luck; 10tons have brought their super gory title Crimsonland to PS4/PS3/PS Vita, with cross-buy. The quest mode of Crimsonland takes place through six chapters, each with 10 missions. You’re an unnamed space soldier fighting against an onslaught of enemies for no discernible [...]

Review: MouseCraft

July 14, 2014 // 3 Comments

There may be a drought of big release titles on the new gaming consoles, but one thing PS4 isn't lacking is quality indie titles. A couple of these digital games release every month, and July started off hot with the release of MouseCraft from Curve Studios. MouseCraft is a “simple” puzzle game in the vein of something like Lemmings only much more enjoyable in this day and age. You're tasked with helping three mice get past a series of obstacles to get to the cheese. To complete the level, you only need to get one mouse to the cheese. [...]

Review: R.B.I. Baseball ’14

June 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

R.B.I. Baseball ’14 (PS4 [Reviewed], Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, iOS, Android) Developer(s): MLB.com, Behavior Interactive Publisher: MLB.com Genre(s): Sports, Baseball Released: June 24, 2014 (PS4, Xbox One), April 9, 2014 (PS3, X360) ESRB Rating: E – Everyone There was a time when a console would have many baseball games released in the same year resulting in a vast library of baseball games. Gamers who were baseball fans had no shortage of games to play. These days, Sony’s MLB: The Show is the only game in town following the demise of the multiplatform series from 2K Sports. So [...]

Review: Blue Estate

June 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

Blue Estate (PS4, Xbox One) Developer: HeSaw Publisher: Focus Home Interactive Genre(s): On Rails Shooter Release Date: June 24, 2014 (PS4), TBA (Xbox One) ESRB Rating: M – Mature If you don’t know what Blue Estate is (and I didn’t), it’s a comic book by Viktor Kalvachev. This is a digital only game based on the comic by developers HeSaw (from what I can gather, the first game from the Paris based developing studio). It’s unlike anything currently available on PS4. That’s a good thing for this game, because it has a certain market all to its self. That market [...]

The Backlog Volume # 25 – Mario Kart 8

June 8, 2014 // 1 Comment

Platform: Wii U Publisher: Nintendo Developer: Nintendo Genre(s): Racing Released: May 30, 2014 ESRB Rating: E – Everyone Hello everyone and welcome back to the ramblings of a man with too many video games and not enough time to play them, The Backlog. We haven’t done this in a while, my real life and day job have seen to that by (figuratively) kicking me in the nuts and (literally) slamming me into a tree (I’m fine, but my bank account would beg to differ). Anyway, with my return, we will be looking at Mario Kart 8. Nintendo has deemed the Wii U a failure, but that did not [...]

Review: Wolfenstein The New Order

June 4, 2014 // 0 Comments

Wolfenstein: The New Order (PC [Reviewed], PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360) Developer: MachineGames Publisher: Bethesda Softworks Genre(s): First Person Shooter Released: May 20, 2014 MSRB Rating: M – Mature I am always happy to welcome a new Wolfenstein game.  The previous Wolfenstein game from 2009 was slagged on certain quarters.  I would contend it was a bit underrated and overlooked. I want to state upfront that this is game that merits a strong Mature rating most notably for some grim sequences and at least one very notable torture sequence that in my opinion was excessive and over [...]
