    Resident Evil 5 (Collector's Edition)

    Rated on July 07, 2012 by Iridescent406

    D:

    This is a very unfortunate case indeed. Resident Evil 5 is a game published and developed by Capcom in 2009. This is considered to be the black-sheep of the series by many, including myself. But why, ...

    I'll be Damned…

    Shadows of the Damned

    Rated on May 13, 2012 by Iridescent406

    I'll be Damned…

    I haven't really found an easy way of reviewing a game like this. I find it hard to start talking about Shadows of the Damned because of the way it is. That might seem like a vague reason for not bein...

    A long shot from others with unworthy praise.

    Fallout: New Vegas

    Rated on April 01, 2012 by Iridescent406

    A long shot from others with unworthy praise.

    Jumping into something like New Vegas, I had nothing but excitement. It's been some time since I've played something of this nature, I'd say about a good two years now. Come to think of it, two years ...

    Quite possibly, the best RPG of this generation.

    Dragon Age: Origins

    Rated on April 01, 2012 by Iridescent406

    Quite possibly, the best RPG of this generation.

    It's always hard to pick favorites when it comes to gaming. Lists are often made with care and consideration, yet they never seem to be satisfying to the owner of said list. There are always changing ...

    What can I say; this is probably the most disappointing sequel I've ever played.

    Killzone 3

    Rated on March 22, 2012 by Iridescent406

    What can I say; this is probably the most disappointing sequel I've ever played.

    I know what you want to do first; you want to go straight to the bottom of this huge-ass review for spurting what might be considered to be one of the most ludicrous things ever said by a Sony fan. Bu...

    Don't be afraid of The Darkness... 2!

    The Darkness II

    Rated on February 14, 2012 by Iridescent406

    Don't be afraid of The Darkness... 2!

    When most people think about stories in shooters, nothing really comes to mind. Very few FPSs have actually told a compelling story, or even attempted to for that matter. Most developers nowadays are ...

    "It's all the Rage!"

    Rage

    Rated on February 07, 2012 by Iridescent406

    "It's all the Rage!"

    We'd been saying that months prior to the games release, and after all this waiting (6 years, to be exact), it missed the mark of being the game that everybody should own or rent, according to most of...

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Rated on January 22, 2012 by Iridescent406

    What happened, Bethesda?<br /> <br /> A review from a HUGE fan of Bethesda.

    5 years. It took all of those 5 years to create Skyrim, a game that I was looking forward to for a long time. I, along with many other people, thought that this game couldn't possibly get anything wro...

    Bringing the hammer down, slowly.

    Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

    Rated on November 15, 2011 by Iridescent406

    Bringing the hammer down, slowly.

    I'm not going to lie, I had little to no idea what Warhammer 40K: Space Marine was about. And to tell you the truth, I'm still a bit hazy on the overall story line in the game. But like any violent T...

    No need for Resistance.

    Resistance 3

    Rated on September 22, 2011 by Iridescent406

    No need for Resistance.

    What goal was in the mind of the developing team of this game? One of the things that really hold this game is its under-ambitious attitude. This is something that tends to be the focus of triple-A FP...

    L.A. Noire

    Rated on September 04, 2011 by Iridescent406

    He's a professional.

    It's been 7 years since the beginning of what we know as 'L.A. Noire'. It's been a pretty rough development cycle for both Take-Two and Team Bondi, as financial issues and constant changes were made t...

    A war for anti-depressants.

    Call of Juarez: The Cartel

    Rated on August 28, 2011 by Iridescent406

    A war for anti-depressants.

    Call of Juarez: The Cartel is the farthest thing from an interesting specimen. Everything that you'd come to expect from an FPS is all here: slow motion gun fights, helicopters, car chases, a leveling...

    With Crysis 2, we begin to see Crytek evolve into more than just an "awe-inspiring visuals" company.

    Crysis 2

    Rated on August 06, 2011 by Iridescent406

    With Crysis 2, we begin to see Crytek evolve into more than just an "awe-inspiring visuals" company.

    It's hard to believe those four years ago, we were witnessing the possibilities of what gaming could look like with the first Crysis developed by Crytek. To be honest, I've never played this game, due...

    Shift 2: Unleashed

    Rated on August 06, 2011 by Iridescent406

    Watch, as an opponent with the same exact car passes me in a straight away.

    Shift 2 is an interesting specimen. It is a change of pace from the series usual high speed shenanigans, and it dives into the world of simulation driving. This isn't the first time, obviously. Shift ...

    How much did you enjoy playing through Twilight Princess?

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

    Rated on August 06, 2011 by Iridescent406

    How much did you enjoy playing through Twilight Princess?

    Weird question, isn't it? But that's what I kept asking myself while playing through Twilight Princess. Normally, I'd go into a Zelda game expecting an exceptional experience, as anybody with a sane c...

    Portal 2

    Rated on July 01, 2011 by Iridescent406

    Portal 2 does just about everything right.

    I had a lot of trouble trying to figure out a proper tag line, but there it is. I couldn't really find any evidence to prove it otherwise in my time of playing Portal 2. Not only is it a single-player...

    Take all of the exciting objectives from Dead Space 2, cram them into an hours' worth of DLC, and you get Severed.

    Dead Space 2: Severed

    Rated on June 06, 2011 by Iridescent406

    Take all of the exciting objectives from Dead Space 2, cram them into an hours' worth of DLC, and you get Severed.

    With Severed, we see the return of Gabe Weller, one of the protagonists of Dead Space Extraction. Gabe is now a part of the Sprawl Security Force, and is married to Lexine, you know, that girl who off...

    Dead Space 2

    Rated on May 14, 2011 by Iridescent406

    Dead Space 2 is the perfect culmination of strategic third person shooting and survival horror.

    What is survival horror? You're probably thinking "a game that has survival elements that is generally scary". For Dead Space 2, the above rule applies in more ways than any other survival horror game...
