    Marvel’s Avengers – Missed Opportunities

    I’m enjoying Marvel’s Avengers. It’s not a bad game. It’s decent. Everything about it is decent. Decent animations, skins, story, and so on. What’s weird and off-putting is wrapping all of that around a live-service engine.

  • Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time – Game Review

    Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time – Game Review

    The theme song is already in your head, isn’t it? It got lodged there for me as soon as I found out that we were getting a new Samurai Jack game. Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is the latest from Soleil Ltd., published by Adult Swim Games. They previously made Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Strikers. […]

  • RIP Marvel Heroes

    RIP Marvel Heroes

    It’s funny, I am both sad that Marvel Heroes Omega is gone, and completely unsurprised by it.  MH has long been my most played game on Steam, and thoroughly scratched my Diablo itch by providing fun Action RPG gameplay in a non-obnoxious free to play model.  The writing was on the wall when David Brevik […]

  • Game Thoughts – No Man’s Sky

    Game Thoughts – No Man’s Sky

    I’m not calling this a review as I’m not that far in, but I already have a lot of complicated thoughts about No Man’s Sky.  Here they are in no particular order: Is it any good?  I don’t…know?  Seriously, I can see how some people can tune into it – there is something zen about scooting around […]

  • State of the Game:  Marvel Heroes

    State of the Game: Marvel Heroes

    Note:  I looked at Marvel Heroes before, but the game has changed even more since then so I’m starting fresh in this article. I tried Marvel Heroes when it first came out (it didn’t have the ‘2015’ in the name then) but only played about 20 or 30 hours before setting it aside.  Loved the […]

  • Game Review – LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

    Game Review – LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

    I played a demo of the very first LEGO game, LEGO Star Wars, it seems like forever ago.  Since 2005, Traveller’s Tales has created similar games in numerous licensed worlds (DC comics, Indiana Jones, and Harry Potter among them), but the latest game, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, is definitely the pinnacle of the series.  Though […]

  • Vintage Gaming – Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast

    Vintage Gaming – Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast

    First person shooters were huge for me when I was younger, despite the fact I wasn’t very good at them.  That meant FPS’s that still had a single player story were much loved and more likely to be bought.  Jedi Outcast was the second ‘Jedi Knight’ game but the third game starring Kyle Katarn, one […]

  • Get to know an MMO – Star Wars: The Old Republic

    Get to know an MMO – Star Wars: The Old Republic

    A continuing series where I look at current MMO games from a Free to Play perspective (as I’m too much of a cheapskate to pay for a monthly fee unless the game is REALLY good). I wanted to try this as soon as I’d heard of it – a new Star Wars game from Bioware?  Great!  […]

  • Get to know an MMO:  Marvel Heroes

    Get to know an MMO: Marvel Heroes

    Note:  First in a series where I look at current MMO games from a Free to Play perspective (as I’m too much of a cheapskate to pay for a monthly fee unless the game is REALLY good). As you know from this site, I’m a big Marvel comics fan.  I read them as a kid, […]

  • Game Review – Monaco

    Game Review – Monaco

    The devs were nice enough to let me take Monaco for a spin early, and here are my thoughts.  If you aren’t familiar with the game, here’s a brief rundown: Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine is a single player or co-op heist game. Assemble a crack team of thieves, case the joint, and pull off […]

  • Game Review – Tomb Raider

    Game Review – Tomb Raider

    I played bits and pieces of the early Tomb Raider games, but was never a fan of them.  I didn’t seek them out.  But I kept hearing how good this new one was, at least before everyone moved on to Bioshock: Infinite, and when I saw a good deal, I jumped in and bought it.  […]

  • SimCity – My Impressions

    SimCity – My Impressions

    If you are reading this, you probably know all the debates on the new SimCity, about always-on (and whether it’s needed), how scummy EA is, the stupid decisions leading up to the release of the game, and so on.  I’ll be touching on all of that, as well as the actual gameplay. First, Origin.  I […]
