Tales from the Borderlands Episode Two – “Atlas Mugged” Review

Full article available here.

I wouldn’t have guessed it, but after another episode in Pandora I may never want to leave. Telltale Games’s latest take on the Borderlands franchise is one of it’s best ever. The pacing is quicker, the action is snappier, the dialogue is even funnier and there’s still no sign of Claptrap (which for me, is a good thing).

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Review: Between Horror and Horrible

It seems a customary tradition to lament the release of a new Resident Evilgame by simultaneously roasting it’s flaws and referencing the greatness of previous games in the franchise. The criticisms of the Resident Evil franchise have been measured by fans complaints of how far the once mighty series has fallen. Aside from the outstanding HD Remake of the original game last January, the Resident Evilseries is in desperate need of some good news. Resident Evil Revelations 2, much like its predecessor, is a small step in the right direction. It’s the closest any Resident Evil game has come to matching the greatness of previous titles but that’s not exactly saying much.

Evolve Review: Monster Madness, Multiplayer Masterpiece

Full review available here.

Every once in a while, a game will come along where the pricing, marketing and pre-release news surrounding it will overshadow the quality of the game itself. Despite the best intentions of Turtle Rock Studios (the developer of the Left 4 Dead games), Evolve is destined to remain controversial for all the wrong reasons. Your ability to enjoy this game will depend on whether you’re willing to put up with the reviled shenanigans of it’s publisher. Buried underneath the mess of pre-order bonuses and day-one DLC, Evolve is a masterfully crafted online experience.

Battlefield Hardline Beta Impressions: Inconsistently Underwhelming

Full article available here.

I was bored after nine hours.

There’s a lot of potential in mashing the Battlefield series with the “Hollywood heist” film genre. Hasn’t every little boy played cops & robbers at some point during their childhood? That dream has supposedly graduated from playgrounds and backyards and found its way into the video game industry. Games such as Payday: The Heist and its sequel successfully capitalized on the lack of a true heist video game.

Evolve Beta Impressions

Full article available here.

In a previous article about the Evolve Alpha, I said that this game was worth playing. After playing 7 hours of the Evolve Beta, I can safely say that I will be buying this game when it releases. The difference in those statements was made up by all the improvements that Turtle Rock Studios has applied to their newest creation.
