ROUND 1… FIGHT!! I’m a huge fan of Mortal Kombat. I have been for over 2 decades. Sadly, that doesn’t mean I’m particularly good at Mortal Kombat. Sure, sure, I may have rocked the house down in arcades or on SNES back in my youth, but the universe be damned if they’re going to allow […]Read more "Kombat Pack (Mortal Kombat X DLC)"

Thank you, Mr. Iwata. Thank you, Mr. Iwata. I don’t think there’s really a better way to open this story. Article? Remembrance? Well, whatever this is. I’ve struggled to write this for about a week now. For various reasons. Simply put, there will be hundreds of better written, better thought out, and definitely more important […]Read more "Thank you, Mr. Iwata"
It’s been almost a month since Batman: Arkham Knight. I’ve reviewed it and have played about 30 or so hours of the game, so I think it’s safe to say that I understand what the base of Arkham Knight was. Rocksteady tried too hard to justify the Batmobile and made the conclusion to Arkham trilogy a rather paint-by-number adventure.Read more "A Matter of Family (Batman: Arkham Knight DLC Review)"

Many of us have been presented with a great question: do we buy the digital version of the game or the disc-based version of the game? This generation especially that has become a more and more taxing question I find myself asking myself, just by taking a glance at my Download List on PSN and my […]Read more "The Quandry of Gaming In A Digital Age"
Don’t give in to your darkest fears. It’s no secret that I love what Rocksteady has done with Batman. I have sang its praises up and down the mountaintops, defended Arkham Origins and its 2.5D counterpart Arkham Origins Blackgate. Arkham Knight is no different. Arkham Knight picks up a few months after the events of Arkham […]Read more "Batman: Arkham Knight Review"
