Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown Review – The Return Of The King

After being absent in the world of fighting for over a decade, Sega has dusted off the Virtua Fighter license and thrust it into the modern age. While we all knew Sega was working on a Virtua Fighter esports project. We didn’t know it would mean the company would re-release a familiar face, yet that’s what was done with Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown… I mean, Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown.

Days Gone PC Port Review

The day is finally here, and we can officially talk about the Days Gone PC port, which releases on May 18th, 2021, for the PC. I’ve spent the past week talking about this game and answering as many questions as PlayStation would allow. But now the gloves are off, and I can talk about what I feel is one of the best efforts on porting a PlayStation 4 title to the PC. Now, this isn’t a review of the game, as we have already reviewed Days Gone on the PS4 several years ago. Instead, I’ll be going ov

Outriders (PC) Review

Truth be told, when Square Enix originally announced Outriders, I wasn’t terribly impressed. At the time, there were already several notable looter shooters, such as Destiny 2, Borderlands 3, and The Division. All of which originally held my attention but were slowly being moved from my “most played “games to “I can’t stand these games anymore.” I figured I was pretty much done with this sort of game, but I figured I’d give it a fair shake. Suddenly, the more I discovered the game, the more I st

Nerf Halo Infinite MA40 Motorized Dart Blaster Review

While Halo Infinite has been delayed until 2021, you can still get a little bit of Halo Infinite into your lives with the Nerf Halo Infinite MA40 Dart Blaster, which was announced a few months back. It is the latest Nerf x Halo toys and one that arrived early last week, which gave me some time to put the toy through some paces and have a bit of fun with the family. And yes, this did arrive early that it was supposed to, but I’m not complaining one bit. The MA40 color scheme consists of an off-

The Evil Within Review (PC)

It’s been quite some time since we received anything from the original creator of the Resident Evil series, Shinji Mikami. So, of course, people were skeptical when it was announced that Shinji Mikami was going to be at the forefront of a new psychological/survival horror game. Did he still have the touch? Could he still craft a masterpiece such as Resident Evil again? That’s what we intend to find out. In The Evil Within, you play the role of Detective Sebastian Castellanos, who has just finis

Dark Souls II "Crown of the Sunken King" DLC (PC) Review

If you’re like me and have played through FROMSOFTWARE’s Dark Souls II multiple times–to the point where you simply tired of playing it and are looking for some new content from the series–then you’re in luck. As of today, the first of a three-part trilogy DLC for Dark Souls II titled “Crown of the Sunken King” has been released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. But you already knew that I mean that’s why you’re here? Right? In this first DLC, the player is tasked with locating and retri

The Evil Within: The Executioner DLC (PC) Review

The third and final DLC for The Evil Within has been released and unlike the other two pieces of DLC, this one takes a different approach. Instead of the conventional 3rd person / over-the-shoulder view, gamers are treated to a 1st person perspective similar to what you’ll find in other titles such as Zeno Clash and Dying Light. I have to say that it works out well, especially since I had my reservations about the change-up. After playing for a while I was pleasantly surprised with how well this

Review: Alien Isolation for the PC - Running for dear life on a derelict station

I’m a huge fan of the Alien franchise films. I’ve played most if not all of the Alien-based games from the past, and yes, that also includes that steaming pile of crap called Aliens: Colonial Marines (Oh, the nightmares from that game). Given that it took quite some time even for that train wreck to appear only to crash and burn, I had given up on a worthwhile title from that series. That is until I heard about Alien: Isolation. Could this be the game I’ve been waiting for, I wondered to myself?

Bloodborne - 's review

I consider myself a die-hard fan of the FROMSOFTWARE’s Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls series. One could imagine how I felt when it was announced that Bloodborne would be the next spiritual successor to the aforementioned games. Time has passed, and now that I finally have the game in my hands, I bid my family farewell, cut off the world, and descend into the madness of the hunt. If you’d ever played either Demon’s Souls or Dark Souls, then, for the most part, you are going to pretty familiar with

The Surge (PC) Review

Back in 2014, Deck 13 Interactive developed a title that tried to emulate the success of FromSoftware’s action-RPG titles. That game was Lords of the Fallen, a game that didn’t live it to the hype that was generated for it. Sadly, it just was too much of a carbon copy to stand up against the original. Fast forward 3 years later, Deck 13 Interactive is back with another title, The Surge. Is this more of the same or does it stand out enough to make an impact? Game Name: The Surge Platform(s): P

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers (Switch) Review

Here we go again, another release of Street Fighter II. This time on the Nintendo Switch, you’d think by now that Capcom would be tired of porting this game out. Instead, it seems like they’re hell-bent on releasing their once flagship fighter on every gaming platform. But is there anything here that makes Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers any different from the previous HD Remix release? Game Name: Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers Platform(s): Nintendo Switch Pu

Review: Metro Exodus - There's Only Metro Nothing Else

When I first saw the trailer for the game, I expected this to be something similar to a roaring good time. Like, let’s travel with my friends and see the rest of the war-ravaged country. How wrong I was, as the underlying tones of despair and grim are still present. However, I have to get this out before we go any further, while the game retains much of the ambiance and atmosphere that the series is known for. Except it doesn’t get dialed up until you’re near the end. It felt more like an advent

OMEN Vector Wireless Mouse Review - OMEN's best wireless gaming mouse yet

It wasn’t too long ago that Omen, HP’s gaming division, dropped off their second wireless gaming mouse for us to check it out. Fast-forward to today, where we’re finally able to talk about their next gaming mouse, the wireless version of their previously released OMEN Vector Gaming Mouse. Still pushing to make a name for itself in the PC gaming accessory scene, OMEN has released its second wireless gaming mouse with the Vector Wireless Gaming Mouse. Following their release of the Photon Wireles

Nioh 2 Complete Edition PC Impressions

It’s not bad but definitely rough A few years back, Koei Tecmo had ported the then PlayStation exclusive title Nioh to the PC. I followed that and was able to get early access thanks to Koei Tecmo, and wrote up my thoughts of that port and provided them to the developer. In a nutshell, it was a rough port with several issues, specifically with the performance, among other things. Over time, the game got better and is recommended to give it a play. Now, we’re doing the same thing with Nioh 2 Co

Kunai Review - Cutesy Tablet Ninja Action

If you had told me that I’d eventually find myself playing a game where the star of the show was a tablet (one that looks like an iPad at that), I would have laughed at you and quickly shooed you away. However, that’s exactly what you’ll find when you first fire up Kunai by The Arcade Crew. Don’t let the cutesy look fool you, or you’ll miss out on some damned good 2D hack and slash/Metroidvania action. I’ll spare you the story as it ultimately fades in the background, while the gameplay takes h

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath - 's Review

While I don’t play Mortal Kombat 11 that much, I appreciate the story and efforts that Netherrealm put into the game. So when they announced they had another story to tell in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, I was ready to grab my gamepad and see what sort of madness was in store for the first-ever expansion to a Mortal Kombat game. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. Game Name: Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath Platform(s): PS4 (reviewed), Xbox One, PC, Switch Publisher(s): WB Games Developer(

Disintegration - 's Single Player Review

In the future, man has discovered a way to transplant a human brain into armatures or a fancy word of saying robotic bodies. This is referred to as “Integration.” What should have been a discovery to further the advancement of humanity ultimately ends up the complete opposite. An oppressive regime, Rayonne, forcibly requires humans to undergo the Integration process and become slaves or die. In Disintegration, you play as Romer Shoal, an armature who turned against the Rayonne and is about to me

Hotshot Racing Review - Arcade racers aren't dead yet

If you’re a fan of arcade racing games of the past – we’re talking about arcade gems such as Ridge Racer, Daytona USA, Outrun, Virtual Racing, and many others. Then Hotshot Racing is a game that you don’t want to miss. Let’s be honest; when it comes to arcade racing games, this genre has been in decline for years now. Sure, we’ve had a few titles such as Forza Horizon that stopped the arcade racing genre from disappearing completely, but even then, I regard that series as more of a sim arcade r

DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment Review - Worth the asking price

When Sony announced they were releasing a DualShock 4 controller attachment that would add two extra buttons to the controller, I initially wrote it off. Mainly due to the market already flooded with controllers that had this feature built-in such as those from Astro or Scuf. However, once I had some hands-on time with one, the appeal of this less expensive adapter was clear and I came away impressed with what Sony has come up with. Accessory Name: DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment Platform(
