Far Cry 3 is Fun but Far Cry 1 was still Better

Post Pic
Far Cry 3 takes us back to the wonderful tropical jungles with beautiful high quality graphics. As Far Cry already got us used with their story, it never follows up. In Far Cry 1 (2004) you start as a fighter not only against rebels and terrorists but also against a laboratory which conducted secret experiments on chimpanzees and humans and mutated them into some sort of “perfect soldiers”. In...

Id Software's RAGE game may give you a dose of rage

Post Pic
Id Software’s last game, Rage may give you a dose of Rage while playing it. Rage is an interesting open-world first-person shooter game, somewhat similar to Red Faction, where the player can easily navigate from here to there by using a car or an ATV. The idea is not necessarily new or never seen but overall the game has a great feeling while playing it and that of course is because Rage was... 

Dead Space 3 Review, An Impressing Sequel

Post Pic
The Necromorphs are back! Did you miss them? Isaac Clarke is back in a new sequel of the Dead Space which is quite impressing. Considering the fact that the Dead Space franchise reached its 3rd “episode” within the series, this game is quite alright. Most games and moves screw up big time after their first sequels, let alone second or third… Dead Space 3 made no exception, it did... 

Crysis 3 Review, The Biggest Disappointment

Post Pic
Crysis 3 is a big disappointment, perhaps the worst in the Crysis series and as a matter of fact it has the lowest rating on IMDB.com which is an online movie rating website, which also contains video games. Crysis 3‘s rating on imdb.com is of 4.8, compared to Crysis 2‘s 8.3 rating and Crysis‘s 8.7. So it looks like the Crysis series is slowly going down the toilet but even so, main... 

Max Payne 3 Review

Post Pic
It’s been a long time! Max is back! I wish he wasn’t… Considering how Max Payne first started in 2001 and that it was universally recognized to have the best in-game graphics at the moment, Max Payne 3 has average graphics for 2012, its graphics are comparable to those of Far Cry 1 graphics, a game from 2004. Of course, graphics aren’t everything, especially for old-school advanced...

New Call of Duty video game reveals villain as "Leader of the 99%"

Post Pic
Less than a year ago I wrote an article about pro war propaganda in video games which was sadly one of my most controversial articles for that whole month, despite the fact that I covered some very important topics during that time. Even if you doubted that the popular wartime first person shooters were propaganda before, you are going to have a hard time not being suspicious after hearing that the...

Post Pic
Gamers at the Tokyo Game Show use Xbox 360's motion sensor to 'dance' in a game - but a spokesman said new titles could 'project' game worlds into the living room.
