Destiny The Taken King Review: Aiming For The FPS Crown image
Destinyís first year out in the wild, much like the core game itself, was full of ups and downs. But no matter what you think about the game that launched in September of 2014, itís impossible to deny that Bungieís phenomenon of a shooter has grown and improved over the past 12 months. Itís fitting, then, that Destinyís year two kicks off with a massive DLC pack called The Taken King, as itís easily the gameís crowning achievement to date.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Review: Phantom Pain, Real Opus image
The tale of Big Boss has engaged players for over 28 years. From the original Metal Gearís 8-bit beginnings, to the recently released Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Big Boss has been the catalyst that set into motion the events that unfolded before us. Sometimes his presence was only in the periphery, a ghost of events long past resonating into the present. Sometimes we played as him, sharing in his triumph and heartache.

Mad Max Review: Shiny And Chrome image
The Mad Max franchise delivers one of the more grim what-ifs of a potential post-apocalyptic world. Never is there the promise of government restoration, peaceful co-existence between the forsaken surviving populace, or even just a respite from the hardships of life. Instead, the Mad Max films have painted a picture of the savagery and brutality inherent in the hearts of men who have to fight each day for their lives.

The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter Review: The Power Of Imagination image
Imagination is a powerful thing and, for the titular child at the heart of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, it serves as both a blessing and a curse. Ethan's imagination provides him with freedom while simultaneously alienating him from his own family. Itís an unspeakable horror that holds him captive as well as a hero intent on rescuing him. It provides both salvation and damnation and, for the player, it serves as the foundation for one hell of a narrative journey.

Godzilla Review: The King Of All Mediocrity image
Godzilla is the kind of property that seems like it would transition perfectly into video games. You've got giant monsters, military forces storming the scene, buildings in need of smashing and more. Unfortunately, the king of all monsters will have to keep defending his title on the silver screen, because his latest console outing has proven to be another major letdown.

Batman Arkham Knight Review: A Fitting End image
It's common practice for game franchises to be driven into the ground with endless sequels. Batman: Arkham is fortunately the exception, with Arkham Knight ending the series on a high note.

Destiny House Of Wolves Review: Leader Of The Pack image
Taking a sort of ďkitchen sinkĒ approach to DLC, Bungie's latest expansion for Destiny, House of Wolves, offers a little bit more of pretty much everything the first-person shooter already has to offer. But even with a bunch of new gear, new missions and new modes, is that enough to warrant a return trip to this solar system torn by war?
