Cloud Pirates First Look

Cloud Pirates First Look

I'm a sucker for aerial combat. Let me get that out of the way first. I'm also a genuine fan of the "World of Tanks" like business model, though not entirely. I was a hardcore WoT player back in the early days, and if you follow my reviews, also a fan of Mechwarrior Online. I put some serious hours into the airplane combat in War Thunder too, and my joke-named character Large Marge in Star Wars The Old Republic was a force to be reckoned with in Starship Battles (The multiplayer one, not the on-rails one). So it is no...

Lucio update from a Lucio main

Lucio update from a Lucio main

The newest patch for Overwatch arrived this last week and with it an overhaul of my favorite character: Lucio. Along with some other changes to game mechanics and tweaks to a few maps, this patch was obviously aimed at polishing the competitive play and mixing up the meta. Before this patch Lucio was a must pick on every map with nearly every team comp, his ability to reach his entire team with a speed boost in key situations, combined with his sustainability, made him irreplaceable. With the Overwatch patch 1.10 everything has changed for Lucio players. First the range of...

If you are completely unfamiliar with Guns of Icarus, it is a crew based “Steam Punk” FPS. You and your crew pilot a single airship together,...

Horizon Zero Dawn Review

Horizon Zero Dawn Review

Horizon Zero Dawn Earlier this month I took on the noble task of volunteering to review Horizon Zero Dawn. After about a dozen hours into the game, I am getting all aboard this hype train. If you're not familiar with HZD in the first 3 weeks of it's success, then allow me to take you on a journey of a game that I would describe as Fallout meeting Jurassic park while being on a double date with The Witcher & Red Read Redemption. Oh yea, it's a doozy..   Horizon is PS4 exclusive open world single player RPG that successfully blends...

River City Ransom Review

River City Ransom Review

When Joe was 10 he moved to Florida and there met his long time bestie, Steve. One day they found the game that would basically occupy our entire first summer, creating a bond that has endured for over two decades.  Yes, it was River City Ransom (RCR). RCR was one of the first games to approach gaming from a completely different angle: It isn't about being hard, learning the moves and the levels and the combos, it is about exploration and growth and the journey. As far as console games, RCR was one of, if not the first, to take...
