Watch Dogs Review

Watch Dogs Logo

Watch Dogs made a big impression when it burst onto the scene at E3 in 2012. Taking control of a city by way of hacking sounded awesome and the graphics shown in the E3 demo were gorgeous. Everyone believed this game was bound to be the next great open world title. With so much hype Watch Dogs had a lot […]

Infamous Second Son Review


Infamous Second Son was tasked with being the PlayStation 4’s flagship.

The gameplay was innovative and fun, the graphics were breathtaking and it introduced us to one of the most interesting video game universes. Gears of War helped to build the Xbox 360, which makes it unfortunate that the franchise will be leaving the only console generation it has […]

Journey Review


You are a traveler; you have no name you don’t know where you came from, who you are or why you are here. You are crossing through a gorgeous desert with a stranger you don’t know anything about or have any way to communicate with but you have one goal, to reach the top of a mountain in the far […]
