Originally announced at the PS4 reveal event in Feb. 2013, Driveclub was due for release as a PS4 launch title. Development misfortunes led to an 11 month delay and the game was finally released in the first week of Oct. 2014. The game faced major challenges at launch as the online multiplayer was broken and for a game that’s focused on social interactivity, it quickly became a big letdown for gamers. [read more]

When Shinji Mikami and the team at Capcom developed Resident Evil, they changed gaming. There were scary games prior to that first RE game, but those games didn't have nearly the impact. With The Evil Within, Mikami hopes to change the industry once again by bringing back survival horror to its roots. [read more]

Punch Quest is an endless runner-style game developed by Rocketcat Games, Madgarden, and Noodlecake Games. Actually, Punch Quest is less of an endless runner and more of an endless puncher.

If Batman: Arkham Asylum placed Rocksteady Studios in god’s shrine, then I can say with utmost confidence that it’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor that is a shining example for a great future that’s ahead for Monolith Productions. Shadow of Mordor has surprised the heck out of me more than any game this year, and I think you should go out to your nearest GameStop or Wal-Mart to grab a copy. [read more]

When Telltale Games announced the second season of The Walking Dead, fans of the first season were wondering where Telltale was going to take the series. By focusing on Clementine, the second season went in a different direction than the TV series or comics have gone. It was the first of the three that focused on being so helpless, yet finding the strength to carry on. [read more]

It's safe to say that Titanfall is the first highly-anticipated next gen (or should I say current gen) game for 2014.Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall received some huge hype at E3, and it was well deserved. Although the game is not perfect, it's heading in the right direction to be one of the iconic game franchises of this generation. [read more]

I can honestly say that Conception II would be an incredibly awkward game to try and describe to anyone who doesn’t watch anime or play RPGs. In fact, if someone could find a socially acceptable way to describe a game where you impregnate girl’s souls using your “star energy” until they release a Russian nesting doll from their chests with a small chibi inside, I’ll buy them a drink.
