We ask David to give us his account of what exactly has been going on, then go into his development background and what he hopes to achieve from this [...]
Thank you Star Wars. Thank you Battlestar Galactica. Thank you Star Trek. Thank you H.P. Lovecraft. Thank you every science fiction writer for laying the way for Bioware to create and wonderfully conclude this epic that is Mass Effect. Coming into Mass Effect 3 after enjoying its amazing previous title, I was worried that it [...]
There is something about an ambitious brand new IP coming from a development team full of all-star fantasy entertainment creators that really get my nerd juices flowing, and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning definitely fits that bill. Imagine the hack-and-slash gameplay of the best Action/RPG, mix it with the open world aspects of a Fallout or [...]
Bethesa has done it again. After five years since Oblivion’s critical success, they have created yet another potentially legendary hit, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Skyrim takes everything great about the series and attempts to fix everything that is bad. However, some of the bad remains. I cannot completely blame Bethesda considering the intimidating amount [...]

From Borderlands to Dead Rising to Dead Space to Left 4 Dead, the game oddly combines the best of each into one beefy hybrid. After players having endured a five year spike in zombie games, Techlands gives us a [...]
Every once in a while a game defines a genre. It gets released into the public and becomes an instant classic, to which very few games(including sequels) can live up to. In 2000, PC gamers were introduced to one of these games called Deus Ex. Deus Ex was both critically and commercially acclaimed and some [...]
For those who are not familiar with the Witcher series, it is based off a mid-90s Polish book series of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski.
