Review: Vikings – Wolves of Midgard

March 24, 2017 // 0 Comments

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is an action-RPG developed by Games Farm, a studio from Slovak Republic best known for the Air Conflict series as well as the ARPG Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms. Vikings has drawn a lot of early comparisons to Diablo, and for good reason. Of course Diablo isn’t the only game in this particular genre, but it is the [...]

Review: Stardew Valley

March 7, 2017 // 0 Comments

Stardew Valley hits all the right notes and checks all the right boxes as a feature rich farming based RPG. If it can be done better, I'd certainly like to see it, but no one person could make a better game for this genre than Eric Barone has done. I'd say it's the peak, the Harvest Moon game many of us always wanted. [...]

Review: Yakuza 0

January 24, 2017 // 0 Comments

Yakuza 0 is a niche game designed for a Japanese audience first, it's extremely story heavy, and it does have some outdated design mechanics/elements and even graphics (it kinda feels like a remastered PS2 game). If you can get into it though, you're likely to find a very engrossing experience with a lot to offer. If you're like me though, you're probably going to have a hard time getting into it as a newcomer to the series. [...]

Review: WWE Encyclopedia 3rd Edition

October 13, 2016 // 0 Comments

Wrestling fans rejoice – the 3rd Edition of the WWE Encyclopedia is finally here. Back in 2009, WWE and DK teamed up to bring wrestling fans the first ever WWE Encyclopedia. At the time it was “the definitive guide to World Wrestling Entertainment,” and it was truly a must have for any wrestling fan as it covered everything in [...]

Review: Neverwinter (PS4)

August 28, 2016 // 0 Comments

Neverwinter is a free-to-play MMORPG that released on PS4 over a month ago, but has been available on PC for three years and Xbox One for a over a year. This review is based on the PS4 version, and it’s completely free in that you don’t even need PlayStation Plus to play the game. Since its release, I’ve put A LOT of time into [...]

Book Review: The 100 Greatest WWE Matches

May 5, 2016 // 2 Comments

The partnership between WWE and DK Publishing has produced some of the highest quality WWE books ever, and that partnership’s latest release certainly lives up to the high standards that they’ve set. In WWE: The 100 Greatest Matches, best-selling author Dean Miller returns to write in-depth about 100 WWE matches. Each match takes up [...]

Review: WWE 2K16

November 9, 2015 // 1 Comment

My confidence is now restored in this series and I'm excited for the direction it's headed in. In a number of ways these games are better than the real life product because we as fans can make the product the way we want it [...]

Review: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (PC)

October 13, 2015 // 0 Comments

What do you get when you cross the best elements out of a Grand Theft Auto game, the Metal Gear series, stealth games like Splinter Cell,  and for grins an almost MMO lite online mode for a bonus? You get Metal Gear V: The Phantom Pain which is easily in contention for Game of the Year even up against stiff competition like Witcher 3. GRAPHICS: [...]

Review: The Fisher King (1991)

September 21, 2015 // 0 Comments

What a strange and wonderful movie! And also, a movie that is sadly quite overlooked in the careers of both lead actors. Jack Lucas (Jeff Bridges), is a self-centered, Manhattan shock jock in the vein of Howard Stern mixed in with a little bit of Rush Limbaugh. At least that’s the persona he puts on when on the air; at home in his luxurious high [...]

Review: No Country For Old Men (2007)

September 20, 2015 // 3 Comments

I was a little younger when I first saw this movie, and I did not fully appreciate it to the extent I do now. I was watching it expecting a satisfying formulaic action movie, and of course, if you watch No Country For Old Men expecting that, you are going to walk out pissed. In a way though I am glad I had the original experience with the film [...]

Review: The Achievers (2008)

September 19, 2015 // 0 Comments

If you have no idea what The Big Lebowski is, I urge you to look up my review here on this site. It should be featured down below. This was an interesting movie to watch for me, but I warn you going in, it may not be for the “uninitiated” any more than your typical screening of the Rocky Horror Picture show would be enjoyable for someone who [...]

Quick Daily Review #227: The Color of Money (1986)

September 18, 2015 // 0 Comments

The Color of Money (1986) The worst thing about The Color of Money is that it is a sequel to The Hustler (for Trivia Buffs, also the first movie I ever reviewed on this site)and of course, it does not live up the heights set by that level of a classic. Almost no film could. That said, if one can view this movie without thinking of the former, [...]
