365 Days Without Skyrim

  Like the title says, I have gone 365 days without Skyrim. Now, what might not be clear is that I have not even OPENED Skyrim yet. It’s still in the plastic, in fact. Sitting there. Mocking me. I started the day count as a kind of a joke. Like a junkie waiting for that […]

Alien Isolation Xbox One Review

Summary [8.0 out of 10] The answer to anyone who asked why we couldn’t just have a scary Alien game after Aliens Colonial Marines, Alien Isolation takes things back to the feel of the first movie with one Alien and very few resources on hand to deal with it. What it amounts to is a […]

The Evil Within Xbox One Review

Summary [8.0 out of 10] A promising start to a new potential franchise, The Evil Within gets back to the horror roots of survival horror while providing a mostly engaging story with strong game play and visuals.

Games That Are Good For October (or any time, really)

Still sticking with that Halloween theme, I thought it would be a good time to talk about five games that I am in love with. This isn’t really a “best of” list, so these games are presented in no particular order. They’re just games that I really enjoyed playing. They just so happen to coincide […]

E3 2014 Preview: Payday 2 Big Bank DLC

One of my favorite games of last year was Payday 2. I played a ton of it with fellow Buzz Media editor Charles and we had a pretty regular group going on Live with play sessions that would stretch much longer into the night than any of us expected with ‘shit I almost leveled, lets […]

E3 2014 Preview: Assassin’s Creeed Unity

Keeping up with the yearly updates of Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft is offering up a new iteration this year that moves the action from pirating to the French Revolution. Given how uneven the Assassin’s Creed series has been, I went into this meeting, which ended up being a private gameplay demo, with a lot of trepidation. […]

E3 2014 Preview: Dragon Age Inquisition

Dragon Age Inquisition was at the absolute top of my must see list for this E3 but scheduling did not look like it was going to allow for it. Thankfully, I had the right window and EA was kind enough to let me squeeze in to see it. Mirroring my experience with Mass Effect 3 […]

E3 2014 Preview: Hellraid

A lot of games I saw at E3 this year were games I was looking forward to and most were new iterations of established series.

E3 2014 Preview: Dying Light

Dying Light is a game that I have been very curious about since last E3. The trailer looked dark and visceral with moral ambiguity and an emphasis on movement. That being said,we have been misled by trailers in the past and given that this comes from some of the people responsible for the ultimately disappointing […]

E3 2014 Preview: Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat X was definitely a game I was hoping to get a look at when I was heading to E3. Standing in line for Batman Arkham Knight and seeing the line for Mortal Kombat stretching ridiculously far into the convention center after the place had been open less than an hour made me realize […]

Titanfall (Xbox One) Review

Summary [8 out of 10] Titanfall is billed as the title that launches the Xbox One into the forefront of the Console Race. I would not say that it fails to deliver but falls short on a few points that otherwise could have solidified this claim and given us a new franchise to rally around […]

E3 2014 Day 3

Here it is, Day 3, the final day of the show and probably the busiest ones I had of the show. I had a lot of appointments, some made on the fly and what I didn’t have a lot of was time. This worked out in some ways and totally fucked me in some others. […]

Summary [8 out of 10] Dead Rising 3 is a massive open world zombie killing horror fan’s wet dream. The sheer scope of this game utilizes the improved hardware of the Xbox One to cram almost every square inch of real estate chalk-full of zombies for you to mow down in so many ways your […]
