Ape Escape (Backtrack Review)

My experience with the first Ape Escape back in the day was very limited. I definitely played it because I have foggy memories of Specter, the game’s villain, cackling at me from the screen on my old tube TV.

God of War (Review)

The God of War franchise started its life over ten years ago, and it stayed fairly consistent for that span of time. It wasn’t until this new release that they decided to take the series in a different direction. Having the same name as the first game, it’s pretty obvious that the intention was to reinvent.

With a similar art style and gameplay, and a focused narrative this time around, I was sold on their new game. What I didn’t expect was to be […]

Valkyria Chronicles (Review)

It’s been ten years since the original release of Valkyria Chronicles on the PlayStation 3. With a new game in the franchise on the way, I figured there was no better time than now to hop in Valkyria Chronicles on the PlayStation 4 is impressive on almost every level. A unique JRPG that blends turn-based strategy with third-person shooting is […]

Shadow of the Colossus (Review)

In 2005, Team ICO released their second game, Shadow of the Colossus. Fans saw it as a massive achievement for the PlayStation 2, with its large open world, its incredible soundtrack, and the jaw-dropping giants that are the colossi themselves. As the years have gone by, Shadow of the Colossus has become the prime example for those in favor of […]
