Pixels Review

Published on July 23, 2015 by in Review

Authors Note: The circumstances surrounding my having seen this movie early and my review having been written months ago are explained at the end of this review. Here we go again, another video game movie.  That’s all I seem to think about whenever I see anything like Pixels advertised, so needless to say I went into my initial

Jurassic World Review

Published on June 13, 2015 by in Review

Let’s face it, the concept of the original Jurassic Park is absurd these days.  I was enchanted by Michael Crichton’s novel that spun a yarn combining probable 1980s genetic science with the desire most young children have had since the day they learned the word “dinosaur”.  That’s what makes the premise of Jurassic World, now

Life is Strange Episode 2 Review

Published on May 18, 2015 by in Review

Episode 2: Out of Time I was quite taken with my initial impressions of Life is Strange, the episodic game that’s part modern adventure and part Choose Your Own Adventure, but there’s a part of me that acknowledged many works have started with fantastic openings and fall short at the end.  In fact, much of the first episode was

Life is Strange Episode 1 Review

Published on May 17, 2015 by in Review

Episode 1: Chrysalis Adventure games have always been a bit of a split for me.  I was never good at them, never completed many of them, and thus I wanted to write them off as worthless but what they did for storytelling is undeniable.  TellTale somewhat switched up the definition of what goes into an

Review: LEGO Marvel Superheroes

At this point I had pretty much given up on LEGO titles altogether.  It’s not that developer Traveller’s Tales isn’t doing a good job, but rather that I feel those games have become so derivative that even film franchises I have interest in fail to entice me.  With the announcement of LEGO Marvel Superheroes, I

Review: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

Normally I wouldn’t see myself even taking a second glance at a title like this.  Thanks to the re-invention of shovelware on the Wii and subsequent titles of its ilk, it’s not a good day to be a 3D rendition of a classic game.  Couple that with Chip’s lackluster impressions of the multiplayer – which

Review: Arkham Origins

Published on November 7, 2013 by in Review

Right out of the gate, Arkham Origins is a tough sell.  With a new team, Warner Bros (WB) Montreal, taking the reigns from Rocksteady and a new multiplayer component coming from Splash Damage (developers of Brink) it seemed like the writing was on the wall for an inferior iteration.  It is also very similar to Arkham
