Pokemon Sun & Moon Review

Pokemon Sun & Moon Review

Pokemon Sun & Moon are the newest releases for the Nintendo 3DS in the Pokemon Saga, and with it comes a laundry list of new features, a new world, and a great mix of new and classic Pokemon. From the beginning you can tell this is not going to be the Pokemon you are used to, although you do start off in your house ready to go meet the professor. From there everything begins to change. You begin to learn about Totem Pokemon and z-moves, which we'll get back to in a bit, but at this point I realized I...

Civilization 6 Review

Civilization 6 Review

In 1993 I finally convinced my dad to upgrade our 286 PC to a 386 by finding a deal on a used at a local PC repair shop. Apparently they sold it to us without wiping the hard drive and one of the items installed on it was a game called Civilization. I’ve been hooked over since. 23 years later Civ 6 launches and I spent my weekend digging in, forgoing both shower and healthy food like a true gamer in order to determine if this iteration with “Stand the test of time.” When I finally unstuck myself from my...

Overwatch, Season 2

  Overwatch season 2 has arrived, and with it comes some pretty major changes to competitive play. With the addition of a 0 - 5000 point tiered ranking system, ranging from Bronze to Grand Master. We also saw the addition of party skill caps, golden guns, and an exciting new map.

The amount of Skill Rank (SR) you get for winning and losing seems to slide based on where you are...

Battlefield 1, Day 1

Battlefield 1, Day 1

The newest addition to the EA franchise Battlefield 1 went to open beta this week and was plagued with what has become the "normal" EA beta server issues. Between the frequent crashes or long waits to find a working game server, there were glimpses of one of the best Battlefield games we have seen in a long time. From period correct weapons and vehicles to charging into battle on horseback, Battlefield 1 delivers everything we have been waiting for in a WW1 reboot. Couple that with stunning graphics and awesome environmental effects, I find myself even more excited for the...
