    It Rains and Pours Terror

    Silent Hill: Downpour

    It Rains and Pours Terror

    I have been long overdue on writing any new reviews, really gaming at all. On one of many days I couldn’t get out of my house, I decided to put Fallout New Vegas down, or not even pick it up, and open Silent Hill ... Read Full Review

    Undead Nightmare Just as Stirring as the Original

    Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare

    Undead Nightmare Just as Stirring as the Original

    While most games have DLC that just touches the very edges of the original game it hearkens back to, this DLC makes the most of an amazing game. In Undead Nightmare, the player is treated to playing John Marston as he w... Read Full Review

    Low on Substance and Price

    Vanquish is a glossy, good looking game with a marginal story and enjoyable controls and game play. What it lacks in story it makes up for in variety of environments and enemies. The game is not one I would say I neede... Read Full Review

    Hello Stealthy Goodness

    Hello Stealthy Goodness

    I had never played a Tom Clancy game. Never. When I saw the footage for this game at the 2013 E3, I thought, I can't go wrong. What I failed to take into account was the high value give to the multi-player portion of ... Read Full Review

    Roaming a Wasteland Couldn't Be Any More Engaging

    Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition

    Roaming a Wasteland Couldn't Be Any More Engaging

    Fallout 3 was a game I had picked up based on recommendations from others. I am not a big fan of RPGs and until recently, was not comfortable in games that are played from the first person point of view. After playing ... Read Full Review

    Fallout 3: Broken Steel

    Fallout 3 had a somewhat lacklustre ending. The game even allows you to ease your way through the ending, if you so desire. With Broken Steel, the gamer is given the chance to fight alongside the Brotherhood of Steel a... Read Full Review

    More to see in the Wasteland, but Not Much Added

    I finished my expedition in Point Lookout this weekend and while it leaves Operation Anchorage in the dust, it doesn't outpace The Pitt by much. The moral dilemma that haunts the main storyline in The Pitt is by far the... Read Full Review

    Delve into the Pitt for More Moral Dilemmas in the Wasteland

    The second DLC that I played for Fallout 3 was the Pitt. In this DLC, the story starts with yet another distress call, pulling you to the very top of the Wasteland map. A slave has escaped and wants your help in freein... Read Full Review

    Top Notch Game Play Coupled with an Absurd Story Makes for a Solid Outing

    Saints Row the Third has been compared to Grand Theft Auto, but silly and crude. That assessment, from what I can tell, is about right, though it doesn't give the game nearly enough credit. In Steelport, the Saints are... Read Full Review
