Review: Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark Kinda Fizzles
The never-ending struggle between the Autobots and the Decepticons rages on in Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, a new offering that bridges the worlds of the recent video games from High Moon Studios and the Michael Bay films. The result: A game that is exactly what meets the eye. Nothing more, nothing less.
Review: Grid Autosport Hits A High Gear
Grid Autosport is all about the racing. No longer relying on a barely there story to pull the player through the game or an “in your face” presentation to try and get the adrenaline pumping, Autosport lets the cars and the tracks do all of the heavy lifting, going out of its way to get the player into the driver’s seat quickly and, more importantly, show them a good time.
Murdered Soul Suspect Review: Don't Solve This Case
After years of being a cop, I learned how to spot trouble from miles away. Case in point, Murdered: Soul Suspect. As soon as that lady walked into my office, I knew I was in deep trouble.

Strike Suit Zero Director's Cut Review: Competent But Inadequate
I'll spare you the drama so you don't have to shuffle through what you might perceive to be a collection of paragraphs not worth the time: The game isn't worth $20 in my opinion. So you don't have to waste your time reading why, I gave it two and a half stars out of five.

Titanfall Review: Hate The Story, Not The Game
Let's get this out of the way first: Titanfall is an online-only game without a proper campaign. That might be enough to drive you away from the game. It would be a shame if you didn't give Respawn's rookie effort a look, though.

South Park and role-playing games are both close to my heart so a South Park RPG should, in theory, be one of my favorite games ever. However, South Park: The Stick of Truth frequently made the RPG fan in me argue with the South Park fan.
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 Review: Rats And Space Marines
Okay, this Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 review is late and most of you won't read it. I couldn't let this game pass without saying anything, though. It's too weird not to be reviewed.
