Madden NFL 15 Review

Madden has long been a series I’ve admired, enjoyed, and played since the early days of the SEGA Genesis when it went head to head with Joe Montana football. It’s been interesting to watch the sports simulation genre grow and mature over those years, with each passing iteration the ultimate goal to create a game that mimics its real life counter part. It’s easy to argue every year that the game is the “most realistic” to date, and this year’s Madden is no exception. But I think we’ve gotten to a point where it almost comes at a cost.

The Golf Club Impressions

Golf games are few and far between, a genre dominated recently by Tiger Woods owned by EA sports. But the great game of golf video games have roots in a series called Links on PC. A new game is out now called The Golf Club and it rekindles a lot of what made these games fun. Gone are progression systems, sponsored gear, and micro-transactions for courses. Instead The Golf Club focuses on community involvement and course creation.

Bound By Flame PC Impressions

My latest video impression comes from the PC/Action RPG, Bound by Flame. It's an interesting title that puts you in the role of a mercenary hired by a group called the Red Scribes who are trying to stop an evil power called the Ice Lords from destroying humanity. During a ritual gone bad your character gets imbued with a fire demon granting you special powers.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Trailer

Maybe we'll finally see real co-op? At the very least we see an almost real looking Kevin Spacey. Also interesting that Sledgehammer games is at the helm instead of Treyarch or Infinity Ward. Definitely a "next-gen" game though.

Beyond Co-Op - Titanfall Review

Titanfall is a game much of the industry has been looking at closely. Why? Simply put it's the next big thing from ex-Call of Duty creators at their new studio called Respawn. The other reason? It's a multiplayer ONLY title, forgoing a single player campaign and instead integrating the story into the game's competitive mode. Much was made of this decision, as well as the decision to go with just 6vs6 - but you know what? It works.
