    Good start to a good premise, but it will really have to step it up if it wants to step out of WD's shadow

    The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 - Faith

    Good start to a good premise, but it will really have to step it up if it wants to step out of WD's shadow

    I'm happy and excited in my pants that Telltale decided to take the thing they just mastered and really hammer it home as their own. They are expanding the point n click, choices n consequences aspect that they basical... Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed III

    I'd like to review the game, but I've been fighting off respawning soldiers for 12 straight hours.

    I'm not using a pirated version or anything. I paid for the game so it's up-to-date in patches, and yet this game that's been out for a year is still not fixed. If you start a fight in certain locations, soldier reinf... Read Full Review

    I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here!  This is like a blank book sold for 20 bucks where you write your own story.

    Gone Home

    I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here! This is like a blank book sold for 20 bucks where you write your own story.

    I feel like I'm in Body Snatchers and I'm the only one left that they haven't turned yet. Just by writing this review, I'm expecting you all to point at me and screech in the form of name-calling and angry replies. The... Read Full Review

    Far Cry 3 loses some good features from Far Cry 2, but gains an equal amount back, earning it the same score.  9.0

    Far Cry 3

    Far Cry 3 loses some good features from Far Cry 2, but gains an equal amount back, earning it the same score. 9.0

    Far Cry 3 improved on a lot of things wrong with Far Cry 2, but at the same time it lost a lot of the things that made Far Cry great. It all evens out, though. Instead of a coherent review, allow me to just throw out i... Read Full Review

    Can we stop pretending this is a good game?  This is the same game as before.

    NBA 2K13

    Can we stop pretending this is a good game? This is the same game as before.

    NBA 2K13 is the exact same game as it has been for years. The controls are still ridiculously clunky. Simply holding left, trying to get from Point A to Point B which is about 3 feet away will generally have your guy d... Read Full Review

    Like Max himself, the game is a drunken, aging, slightly dulled reminder of a classic.

    Max Payne 3

    Like Max himself, the game is a drunken, aging, slightly dulled reminder of a classic.

    Bullet time gunfights are still so fun, you could almost release a mini-game version with no plot and this game would still get an 8.0. And that's almost what this game did. But let's break it down in the typical fashi... Read Full Review

    Alright now that I've drawn you in with promises of pastry, let's get down to it. First, you will notice that it has become "cool" to bash this game. From the massive amounts of thumbs down on any praising review t... Read Full Review

    Not really any better than Round 2, the features and glory of Xbox360 are shaved off and we're left with shaving scum.

    Fight Night Round 3

    Not really any better than Round 2, the features and glory of Xbox360 are shaved off and we're left with shaving scum.

    You can't really judge Round 3 for PS2 because it wasn't made for PS2, it was made for XBox360 and PS2 couldn't keep up. All the new facial features and realistic punch effects are AWAL in the PS2 versions, and we're le... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty: Black Ops

    All the other reviewers are smoking drugs. This game borders on perfection.

    I keep reading about how CoD isn't known for its plot lines so the "mediocre" campaign mode is acceptable. I'd like to know what uber futuristic games they've been playing that dwarfs this game. MW2's campaign was mind... Read Full Review

    New Vegas is fun because Fallout 3 was fun... and New Vegas is just an addon sold for 50 bucks.  A buggy, yet fun addon.

    Fallout: New Vegas

    New Vegas is fun because Fallout 3 was fun... and New Vegas is just an addon sold for 50 bucks. A buggy, yet fun addon.

    15 minutes into New Vegas, I was wondering if I had just paid 50 bucks for an addon. New Vegas was supposed to be the next Fallout game in the series, with a completely new setup, characters, and environment... because ... Read Full Review

    Prepare to watch a groundout on replay.  Pitching is only thing enjoyable.

    Major League Baseball 2K10

    Prepare to watch a groundout on replay. Pitching is only thing enjoyable.

    First off, the numpad controls are completely reversed... so pressing up throws home and left throws to first. Secondly, there are sporadic AI choices... like the outfielder throwing to the "cutoff man" who just happene... Read Full Review

    NCAA Football 09

    EA has been on autopilot for years. Silly silly and only getting sillier.

    Let's call Madden '94 the first real football game, since it was first to utilize the features we have expanded on and improved over the years. So, we're 15 years worth of football games in and nobody has yet to consi... Read Full Review

    Madden NFL 08

    Hey look! It's Madden '01 seven years later!

    So when I first started playing the game, I thought "Hey, new tackle animations, a new kicking system, this is gonna be an improvement! Finally!" 2 hours later, I'm swearing and being a 3rd person commentator... Read Full Review

    Avast! I'm peed myself! Ahoy, I can't stop playing, call for help.

    Right, I couldn't stop playing the crappy looking original Pirates back when I was like 13, and I didn't even really know how to swordfight, attack attack attack. And now, God Bless America, they've gone and recreated e... Read Full Review

    Playboy: The Mansion

    Marketed as a Sims knockoff... delivered as a Sims knockoff... no surprise here, still fun

    PB is just about as fun as the Sims, just like it looked on the back of the box. The pervs will be let down; "sex" scenes are dry humping infinitely on couches and pixelated boobs grow old quickly. But PB is better tha... Read Full Review

    Madden NFL 2005

    As close to perfect as we've come, but still a ways to go

    It's like heaven, if in heaven someone took a dump in your shoes daily. Visually, Madden is amazing and outdoes every other football game available. Sound-wise... awesome hit effects and Al Michaels rocks the house. B... Read Full Review

    Blitz dangles piece of rotted meat wrapped in a pancake

    The ONE solitary single good thing about Blitz: The League is the slo-mo bone breaking. Apart from that, Midway continues to set football game development back a few decades. The interception/fumble/fumble on one play ... Read Full Review
