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.
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.
Reviving Thief is no easy task. Eidos Montreal had to cater to long-time series fans who waited a decade for a fourth installment. At the same time, they had to make sure that their nostalgic game was also a compelling, next-gen adventure that could launch a new series.
If you haven't played the previous Final Fantasy XIII games, there's a good chance that you won't like Lightning Returns. If you have played the previous games, there's a good chance you still won't like it. Square Enix has made some bold changes to the gameplay and unfortunately not all of them work.
A warrior is only as good as the weapon they carry in hand, the armor they wear on their back and, most importantly, the comrades who stand at their side. These laws of battle ring true in Toukiden: Age of Demons, the PlayStation Vita exclusive hunting game from Omega Force and Tecmo Koei.
Is it possible to load up a game with nearly required microtransactions and still keep it fun? This question is worth exploring in a review about Dungeon Keeper's mobile remake. But first, let's talk about some of the premium add-ons that Gaming Blend is offering for this review.
Flappy Bird flies over the low bar it set for itself. In doing so, it somehow became a global success. Whether it deserves that success is irrelevant. The game may not deserve attention from everyone but it deserves attention from someone.
The first episode of Wolf Among Us gave me hope that this series would be just as good as Telltale's other game The Walking Dead. However, Episode 2 of Wolf fell short of my expectations.
Lara Croft approaches the pile of sticks and leafs she's gathered. She takes out a box of matches, realizing there's only one left. After taking a deep breath, she strikes the match along the box's rough edge, producing a flame. She quickly puts the lit match underneath the pile, causing the pile of wood to light up.
"Oregon Trail meets Game of Thrones" is how I'd sum up The Banner Saga in one sentence. Banner Saga is much more than that - such as an RPG and a turn-based strategy game - but at its heart the game is a grueling journey through a bleak fantasy world.
In Killzone: Shadow Fall, the series' long-running tradition of evolution is alive and well in both the single player and multiplayer campaigns. While not everything Guerrilla Games tries to accomplish in this latest shooter for the PlayStation 4 is a resounding success, you have to at least appreciate the effort to shake things up. And while some of those big alterations fall flat, there are just as many moments where this PS4 FPS truly soars.
Pete trudges through a swamp. Every few paces, he stops to fire an arrow at a reanimated corpse aimlessly wandering the area. Each topples over with a groan and hits the muddy water with a loud splash.
Battlefield 4's campaign isn't great. This shouldn't surprise you if you've played other Battlefield games. The campaign mode has traditionally been the thing you play when the multiplayer servers are down. It was what I played for a few hours on launch night when PSN was a smoldering mess. I haven't touched it since.
Superman has gone off the rails, Batman and Harley Quinn are besties, Aquaman is bowing down to a land dweller and, thanks to Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition for the PlayStation Vita, I finally have a story taking place within the DC universe that has actually piqued my interest.
