Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider

February 7, 2016 // 2 Comments

The Tomb Raider reboot of 2013 was my dark horse game of the year, as it was for many other people. It was impressive and it struck a nice balance on gameplay and challenges that drew in many new fans to the series, including myself. I had always respected this series and I had tried out several of the earlier games, but the twitch gameplay and [...]

Just Cause 3 Review

January 6, 2016 // 0 Comments

It's all about getting lost and getting crazy in an open world sandbox and being encouraged and rewarded to do it as insanely as you possibly can. How can you not like that? [...]

Thief Review

March 13, 2014 // 2 Comments

This is a series that has been on hiatus for too long. Like many other long fans who have held their breath since the mixed bag but IMHO overly hated Dark Shadows, the news of a new Thief game was at first met with jubilation and then as media and details came forth a sense of caution and concerns on certain details. Some of these concerns were [...]

Sleeping Dogs Review

August 22, 2012 // 2 Comments

  Hello all and welcome back to another installment of The Backlog. You know, when I first started these, I was looking at some blasts, or in some cases some flops, from the past. Here lately, I’ve been showcasing the type of games that have caused my wall of shame to grow unchecked for several years. Enough of the bullshitting, time to [...]

Now Playing: Final Fantasy V

February 9, 2012 // 0 Comments

Final Fantasy V was released way back in 1992 in Japan on the Super Famicom, but it didn’t make its way to North America until 1999 on the Playstation as part of the Final Fantasy Anthology. It’s been available on the Playstation Store as an individual download since January 2011, but was made available for Playstation Plus members for [...]

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review

September 15, 2011 // 5 Comments

I’m reviewing the PC version of this game but make no mistake: You get a high quality experience on whichever platform you can get this one and you should as soon as possible. Upfront I will say that you should prepare to play the best game you’ve played this year thus far at least. If you have the hardware, the PC opens the door up [...]

Elevator Action Deluxe Review

August 31, 2011 // 1 Comment

In 1983, game developer Taito released Elevator Action in the arcades, and it was a popular arcade game that was later ported to home consoles as an NES title in 1985. That port is available on the Wii’s Virtual Console. But now, some 28 years after the release of the original Elevator Action in arcades, Square Enix has delivered a remake titled [...]

Dungeon Siege III PS3 Demo Impressions

June 12, 2011 // 5 Comments

  I checked out the PS3 demo for Dungeon Siege III today, and since it was a game that I had in my Amazon wishlist, I received some good news from playing the demo: it  just saved me $60. To be fair and honest, I’ve never played a Dungeon Siege game before. But, what I had read about this one made it seem like it would be a good RPG [...]

Just Cause 2 Review

April 17, 2011 // 2 Comments

Just Cause 2 might be the only game I ever recommend ignoring the story of to just play and have fun. The reason the story should be avoided is because it isn’t very good. The writing is bad, the voice-overs are bad, hell even the cut scenes are laughable. Everything that would usually draw you into the world and make you care about the [...]
