May 23, 2017 // 0 Comments

2K held a earnings call today and during it WWE 2K18 was officially announced for this Fall, although platforms were not mentioned. Obviously, this was expected. We usually hear a little bit about the next WWE game before E3 (2K typically doesn’t have a large presence at the event itself), and now that it has been officially announced to [...]

WWE 2K16 Review

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 [...]

WWE 2K14 Review

November 1, 2013 // 2 Comments

One of the biggest complaints of last year was the overall lack of realism and difficulty by the A.I. There was an obsession by the A.I. to want to take you outside and put you through the announce table no mater what, sometimes the obsession with being outside would be so bad that you could actually win by count out. The A.I. also had a strong [...]

BioShock Infinite (PC) Review

April 5, 2013 // 0 Comments

I’ll state it upfront: This game will be on my Game of the Year shortlist without a doubt and it’s set a very high bar for the remainder of this year across the board. I know that’s a bold claim and challenge considering this only March as I write this review but that’s the kind of impression this game has left with me. I [...]

BioShock Infinite Review

April 4, 2013 // 2 Comments

Note: BioShock Infinite was played to completion on “Hard” difficulty. This first playthrough took between 10 and 11 hours to complete, and I did not seek out every collectible (sight seeing or the voxphones) this time through. When I got my PlayStation 3 in 2009, I got a bunch of games to go with it. One of those was BioShock, and out of the [...]

Platinumed: Spec Ops – The Line

March 10, 2013 // 2 Comments

Last Tuesday, 2K Games’ Spec Ops: The Line was made available for free for PlayStation Plus subscribers. When the demo for the game released shortly before the game did last year, I really enjoyed it and thought the shooting itself was just about perfect. I raved about the demo here, and Brian gave it a good score here. Unfortunately, I never [...]

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review

October 15, 2012 // 5 Comments

I never experienced the original 1994 turn based strategy game XCOM: UFO Defense (also known as UFO: Enemy Unknown) because I didn’t have a PC in 1994 and by the time I finally did get one in 1998 or so the game certainly wasn’t on my radar. So I’ve come into XCOM: Enemy Unknown like a lot of gamers will: having no nostalgia for the original [...]

Borderlands 2 Review

September 24, 2012 // 4 Comments

Good news minions, if you enjoyed Borderlands then you will absolutely love Borderlands 2. The sequel to the surprise (to me) hit doesn’t change with the formula that made the first so successful. It’s more of the same, and that’s not bad thing as Borderlands 2 is bigger and better than the original. It’s everything you’d hope a sequel [...]

Borderlands 2 (PC) Review

September 20, 2012 // 8 Comments

For the Borderlands fan in a hurry: Yes, it’s everything you hoped it would be and then some. Everything you loved about part 1 taken to the next level. Buy it immediately. Thanks for reading! There. That would be enough for me personally and I knew this was going to be the case in the months leading up to release but I had to come up for [...]

Spec Ops: The Line Review

July 8, 2012 // 5 Comments

Hello all and welcome back, yet again, to another edition of The Backlog. Today we shall be venturing into the latest entry into the Spec Ops series, Spec Ops: The Line. Unlike the last time we got together to go over Inversion, I really enjoyed this game. Inversion had a cooler concept with their gravity control, as opposed to the occasional [...]
