Joystiq is doing away with review scores. Gone. Done. No more. It’s a regular complaint of game writers and an increasingly vocal group of gamers: reviews have become all about the score and less about the content. What a critic has to say about a game has become far ...
I really, really like what has been shown of Iridium Studios’ There Came an Echo, and it has remained in the back of my mind ever since seeing the game in action and getting to chat with the developers at their PAX East booth. Let’s be honest: voice commands ...

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our stateside listeners! In honor of the national holiday, we celebrate in the only way that makes sense... by trying some utterly disgusting Thanksgiving flavored candy!

Here it is, the first in our Top 10 Games of All Time series!
It hasn’t been a great year for Ubisoft, which is to say, Ubisoft hasn’t had a great run of being open and honest with their customers. The entire launch of Assassin’s Creed: Unity has been an unmitigated PR disaster amidst the hardcore crowd, and with Forbes articles ...
A few days ago, Sleeping Dogs developer United Front Games put up a video introducing their new title, Triad Wars. I say “introducing their new game” lightly, as not much of the game is actually shown, but we’re pretty used to that by now and it’s hard to ...
As a random NPC in Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction once put it, "holy frioli." Final Fantasy XV is a tricky beast. It pokes its head out once every blue moon and should for all intents and purposes be considered vaporware by now, but Square Enix's insistence that yes guys ...
In 1979, the face of Science Fiction was forever altered by the release of Ridley Scott’s “Alien.” The film blurred the lines between science fiction and horror by capturing the bleakness of interstellar travel and introducing a terrifying creature, beautifully designed by H.R. Giger. A creature that would ...
Chris brings you his review of Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, the first proper hack-n-slash Lord of the Rings game in years.
Review: Watch Dogs

Posted by Chris Davis on June 4th, 2014 ( 8 COMMENTS )

As it has always been, when one generation of consoles transitions into another we are presented with what appear to be fresh ideas underneath of sheen of unparalleled graphical fidelity.  Put into development at a time in which the old system’s potential has all but been tapped out, these ...
One of the most common things people will complain about in the film industry is that there is no originality left in Hollywood.  Though I wish I could argue otherwise, the same can often be said about video games.  Too often these days we see one semi-original game come out ...
After months of waiting, Telltale has, at long last, released the third episode for The Walking Dead: Season 2. Episode 1 was, in my opinion, rather disappointing, but Episode 2 really brought The Walking Dead back to proper form with several perfectly executed scenes that gradually built tension. Needless to ...
Chris takes a very serious, professional look at Goat Simulator.
Final Fantasy XIII has had more than it’s fair share of criticism over the years. The game was longfully awaited as the first “next-gen” title in the series but was met with mixed reactions from both critics and fans alike when it debuted in 2009. I personally forced my ...
Review: Titanfall

Posted by Chris Davis on March 23rd, 2014 ( 4 COMMENTS )

I don’t think there is anyone in the world that can reasonably argue that Call of Duty isn’t the biggest shooter franchise on the market right now.  Its solid foundation of twitch-based combat, powerful killstreak rewards and variety of weapons makes a go-to series for competitive FPS players ...
Snake is back. Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes was the first part announced in the two-part storyline that, together, makes up Metal Gear Solid V. With Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain a significant distance away, Konami and Kojima Productions decided to release this slice of the full package ...
Stoic's The Banner Saga is a beautiful and atmospheric game with a powerful soundtrack. The world sets up an emotional story with incredibly high stakes, where every decision feels supremely important. The Oregon Trail-like meta structure forces the player to make tense choices at every turn. And the ...
Review: Thief

Posted by Zack Wheat on March 8th, 2014 ( 4 COMMENTS )

What a long, strange trip it has been for the fourth game in the Thief franchise. After years of a confused, tumultuous development, this sort-of reboot is finally on store shelves. With new ideas and a new developer come new challenges and successes, but the industry has changed quite a ...
I can still feel my heart pounding from this episode. Wow. The latest episode in Telltale's The Walking Dead series has finally released and it was worth the wait. “All That Remains” had improved upon the UI and adventure game elements of the previous season, but was poorly executed ...
In 2012, Telltale Games released a game that would become one of the most beloved titles of this generation. Telltale surprised most of the gaming industry with their dark, emotional, and character driven take on the zombie apocalypse based on the graphic novel series by Robert Kirkman. The first episode ...
Review: Battlefield 4

Posted by Chris Davis on December 13th, 2013 ( 4 COMMENTS )

With the Fall release season comes our annual allotment of modern military shooters trying to thrill us with rollercoaster singleplayer campaigns and multiplayer suites with tons of DLC on the way.  And, like any Fall season, it’s the usual suspects.  Activision’s multi-studio, cyclical juggernaut series continued its annual ...
Review: Peggle 2

Posted by Jeffrey Demelo on December 9th, 2013 ( 3 COMMENTS )

The ‘casual game’ that even ‘core’ gamers love, is BACK! For those familiar with the joy of Pop Cap’s Pachinko-like puzzle game: read this while it’s in the download queue. Truth is, Peggle 2 is simply more Peggle, but better than it has ever been. No surprise, really ...
