Dead by Daylight Review – Good Concept in Search of a Good Game

  Dead by Daylight Behaviour Interactive I actually came across Dead by Daylight by accident. As a filmmaker, I was doing some research in order to see if anyone had made any decent horror video games based off of horror films. Not just any horror games, mind you, but ones that were multiplayer based in…

The Technomancer Review – Interesting Setting & Technical Pitfalls

The Technomancer Spiders Studio It’s strange—it seems as though lately, I’ve been running into a lot of games that feature really interesting backstories, but fail to pull the trigger when it comes to translating their narratives over into the digital realm. Just a couple of weeks ago, for instance, I reviewed Deep Silver’s Homefront: Revolution,…

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter Review – Only the Patient Need Apply

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter Frogwares/Bigben Interactive Having recently played and reviewed the dreadful zombie-splattering offering, Capcom’s Umbrella Corps, I hungered for a completely different gaming experience.

That is to say, I applaud the amount of work and dedication that foreign game developers put into their projects. That doesn’t always mean I want to play them, however. At present, the vast majority of video games mainly come from either the…

Homefront: The Revolution review – Cool Story/So-so Game

Homefront: The Revolution Deep Silver I’ve always been a big fan of underdogs. Working with minimal resources and/or weapons and going up against superior (usually oppressive) forces utilizing asymmetric tactics is something that is visceral for me. I mean, I must have watched 1984’s Red Dawn about a hundred times (the 2012 retread was poop…

Hitman: Episode 3 – Marrakesh – Beautiful Chaos

Hitman: Episode 3 – Marrakesh review IO Interactive My fingers gripped my gaming mouse tightly and I could already feel some tension in my neck. I was frustrated—or rather, Hitman: Episode 3 – Marrakesh had managed to get me pretty stymied. Everywhere I steered the tall, muscular, totally standing-out Anglo assassin, Mr. Agent 47, I…
