Overwatch Review

Overwatch Review

After over 2 years of waiting, Overwatch has finally arrived. Coming from the remains of the “Titan” project, Overwatch is a new entry in the Team-Oriented Role-Based FPS genre. Man, that is what, TORBFPS? Note to self, find better acronym for this. Anyway, until this came the most prosperous game in the this category was Team Fortress 2. And while Team Fortress 2 is still going to be sitting comfortably on its hat filled throne, we finally at least have a game to give it a run for its money.

Overwatch - Open BETA Aftermath

Yesterday was the end of the Overwatch open beta. Thousands (guessing) of players jumped and got what was potentially their first taste of Blizzard's first FPS. And it appears to have gone over well. In order to gently let us newbs get a feel for the game you have a standard training tutorial, and then you have team vs AI. Here you are set with a human team vs a set of AI opponents with a set difficulty. Once you have had your feel of the AI, then you can go for some good old human vs human action.

Review: Pixel Galaxy

Review: Pixel Galaxy

Pixel Galaxy is a new "space" shooter from indie developer Serenity Forge. At its core the game is a "bullet hell" shooter where you start out as a single pixel. From there more pixels race on to the screen, some of them shooting (lots of) bullets at you. If you can dodge the plethora of bullets and run into the pixel firing at you then that pixel is added to you. The more pixels you get the bigger you are. These new pixels may even fire bullets to take out other pixels and add protection for you, the core pixel. But this also means you are less nimble and will get hit by more bullets.

Batman: Arkham Knight - Review

The final game of Rocksteady's Arkham series has been released. Our last venture out  as the Dark Knight has come for Xbox One, PS4, and arguably the PC.  This takes place one year after the events of Arkham City. Most of the criminals that were held in the neighborhood spanning prison were set free as they were held illegally. This means that Two Face, Penguin, Harley Quinn, and Riddler were all free people. They even laid low and crime dropped in Gotham. In fact things were looking great for the citizens of Gotham. Then on Halloween night Scarecrow returned. It started with a small demonstration of fear gas at a diner. Which then lead to a full scale evacuation of the whole city. Now it is up to the Batman to prevent Scarecrow and the other villains from destroying  Gotham, and perhaps the country.

Borderlands 2 Review

Shoot.  Loot.  Repeat.
 
After playing the crap out of the original Borderlands, I have been anxiously waiting to get back to the world of Pandora.  Gearbox and 2K Games have created a sequel in a way sequel's are supposed to be made, it's better.  Borderlands 2 improves in every aspect over its predecessor making it a truly enjoyable experience.  Fans of the original will no doubt want to check out the sequel.  If you never played the original Borderlands, that is okay, you can still jump in with two feet.  If you are a fan of shooters and loot driven games, do yourself a favor and buy Borderlands 2, you will not be disappointed.
