Review: Submerged

Submerged
8 out of 10 Great Recommended

There has always been something magical for me about a game that takes to the waves, of rocking back and forth atop the endless blue, or on occasion speeding across it as fast as you can. It doesn’t necessarily turn a game into more than it might already be, but what it does is convey a sense of tranquility. The other type of moment that goes side-by-side with gliding across an ocean is the pour-down bliss of a golden sun, shimmering light across the wet expanse. Uppercut Games have blended both of these experiences together with Submerged.

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Draenor

wow_wod_logo_hires_m03

I thought I knew what I had waiting for me when I bought it. In many ways the game felt like a known quantity; at worse it would feel the same niche that had previously been occupied by Morrowind and Everquest. Those two honed-in on a love of exploration, and brought about marathon gaming sessions that’d lead to bed as the morning birds were waking.

Review – Jaws of Hakkon

9 out of 10 Excellent Recommended

If you’ve ever played a Bioware game, you know that by the time the first cutscene is over, you’re going to have a dozen new codex entries to read right off the bat. We all saw how crucial lore was in Inquisition – it was like they sharpened it and very sneakily stabbed us in the back with it. Inquisition’s first story-based DLC, Jaws of Hakkon, is now out and available for all platforms, and while it doesn’t address our elven-pantheon related questions, it does give us an extra adventure with new allies and enemies in a beautiful new area […]

Elder Scrolls Online tips for newbies

eso1

For the first time ever I have been truly drawn into the world of an MMORPG, and this is due to none other than The Elder Scrolls Online. However as a relative noob in the world of an MMO, I have to admit that I was a little bit lost at the beginning of the game. I found myself having to look for information and tips on multiple sites. And rather than keep it all to myself, I decided why not share my insights of ESO that just may help you on the road to saving Tamriel.

Nintendo E3 2015 Digital Event is the Nintendest thing ever

nintendo digital

Even if you’re not a Nintendo fan, you have to respect the company’s insistence on doing things their way. Boldly, stubbornly, perhaps even foolishly, they have never been afraid to go in directions that defy conventional wisdom. Perhaps nothing embodies that quality better than their E3 2015 Digital Event. It simply has to be seen to be believed.
