Interview – Techland’s Dying Light

dyinglight-14

On a sunny saturday at EB Expo, I stopped by the Warner Bros booth to check out the latest game from Techland. After an introductory video that showed how to play, I was thrown into the playable demo of Dying Light, side-by-side with zombies, and a few horsemen past the apocalypse. It was almost a leisurely walk, but if you’ve kept up with this title, you’d know that as day falls to night, the pace (as well as the danger would pick up). As soon as the rain began, the skies began to darken, and if not for a last minute […]

The lone wolf’s last hunt – a Destiny review

destiny-banner-2
7 out of 10 Good

So there’s this little game called Destiny.  Perhaps you’ve heard of it.  No other game in recent memory has had such an enormous, prolonged marketing blitz before launch.  And no game has had such a divisive reaction from fans and critics after launch.  Is Destiny a soulless failure?  Is it the future of gaming?  Is it both?  Destiny is, perhaps by design, a game that is difficult to love, yet impossible to put down.  So forming a coherent opinion on it has been difficult.  How do I judge something that, by its creators own admission, is far from complete?

The Sims 4 – Review

sims4review
8 out of 10 Great

I have a love-hate relationship with The Sims franchise. And the reason I love it is also the reason I hate it – it’s incredibly addictive. With its simple premise of guiding a sim through their life, celebrating their successes and drowning their sorrows, the series has found a very strong fan base that gobbles up new releases as though they are mac and cheese delights cooked by a sim with a culinary skill of 12+. After turning my back on the series, I revisted the Sims to review The Sims 4, and damn if it hasn’t become more addictive […]

Destiny_20140918215758

Destiny has been likened to a lot of things, with the most common opinion dubbing the game as an MMO. Personally, I’ve thought of it as a blend between Halo, Borderlands and Diablo III. Halo, well, because Bungie. Borderlands because this game was one of the first to blend the first person shooter genre with role-playing mechanics, complete with class systems, levelling and—of course—bountiful loot. And finally, Diablo III because of the cooperative style story missions of the game. Sure, players can brave the hordes of enemies alone, but the appeal of both Destiny and Diablo III that keeps drawing […]
