SWTORO Onslaught Review

The Onslaught DLC is good. It is not great, but is it good and a number of elements included in the new 6.0 patch are things the game needed moving forward. The new storyline does a good job of reintegrating the player into the conflict between the Republic and the Sith Empire. … Read More »

ArcheAge Unchained Review

ArcheAge Unchained has had a turbulent launch full of ups and downs and everything in between. Gamigo swept in and purchased ArcheAge when Trion Worlds was struggling to keep its feet on the ground, reinvigorating the mmo’s playerbase and inviting back old friends with warm, open arms. The primary feature of Unchained was meant to … Read More »

Astellia Review

Over the past three weeks, Astellia has been at the forefront of my game playing library. Developed by Barunson E&A Studio, Astellia is a generic Korean MMO which has been “redesigned” for western audiences.  This is not the first eastern MMO with haughty ambitions of luring western audiences in, but does Astellia have what it … Read More »

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep Review

With five years of existence, six major retail releases, numerous seasonal and DLC content drops, and consistent sandbox updates, as well as walking through a split with powerhouse publisher Activision, it would be an understatement to say that Bungie has been both literally and metaphorically to the moon and back … Read More »

Monster Hunter: Iceborne Review

The Monster Hunter franchise is always unique in how every battle feels like a dance. I played most of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne solo and every monster might as well have been my dance partner. The way a Nargacuga gracefully circled me before a fight set the mood immediately. The Iceborne expansion delivers a sequel’s worth … Read More »

Control Review

Control is an incredibly hard game to pin down. The Twin Peaks-esque storyline makes every step engrossing as you uncover the mysteries of New York City’s Federal Bureau of Control. Additionally, Courtney Hope’s brilliant portrayal of Jesse Faden, a young woman who comes to the FBC in search of her lost brother, … Read More »

Pagan Online Review

There are quite a few people hyped for the next ARPG worth sinking your teeth into, especially since the disappointing announcement that “Diablo 4” would be a mobile rendition of the game (“Do you guys not have phones??”).  Pagan Online, developed by Mad Head Games, is catching the eye of quite … Read More »

DC Universe Online Nintendo Switch Review

A few weeks ago, I explained my background as well as provided a review-in-progress of Daybreak’s DC Universe Online MMO on the Nintendo Switch. You can check out that article here as this full review will build upon what we already know and discussed there. Since the preview, I’ve managed to hit the maximum … Read More »

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Prophecy…

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Prophecy Review I’ve never really been into Warhammer, 40K or otherwise. Yes, I know, smells like heresy. Oh, the memes. Despite that, I sank dozens of hours into the Dawn Of War titles back in the day and after living with a housemate who managed a Games Workshop, I’ve had a … Read More »

Age of Wonders: Planetfall Review

I’ve played the Age of Wonders series from the second installment onwards.  I was pleased with the third in the series but thought it unusual that Triumph Studios would move into the realm of sci-fi with their AoW III engine.  Going into Planetfall with my background naturally led me to explore how the systems have changed.  … Read More »
