    My Favourite Games Based on Films

    My Favourite Games Based on Films

    I recently wrote an article about if some of my favourite games would translate to make good films. Just as video game movies have a poor reputation, there have been some awful video games based on movies. However, this is a list of movie-based games that I thought were great.

    'A Way Out' Needs Another Way Out

    'A Way Out' Needs Another Way Out

    The emotional rollercoaster ride that was A Way Out (developed by Hazelight Studios and published as an EA Original) warmed and broke the hearts of many as players teamed up with a friend to escape prison and survive in the free world amidst betrayal and the constant, looming threat of getting caught by the cops and getting thrown back into their cells.

    'Hunt Showdown': Review

    'Hunt Showdown': Review

    I recently started playing Hunt Showdown after I bought the game and I really enjoy the game. The game is still in 'Early Access' so some stuff is buggy and the ranking system is a bit out of place, but overall the game is great. There is some story development but not much at the current moment.

    'Hotline Miami 2' - Killing Was Never This Fun

    'Hotline Miami 2' - Killing Was Never This Fun

    Hotline Miami 2 is the sequel to the cult classic video game Hotline Miami and I can say as someone who played the first, Hotline Miami 2 does not disappoint. The story takes place for the most part, after the events of the first game with flashbacks to before both games. And this brings me to one of the cool parts of Hotline Miami already: When you progress through the game, the scenes are out of chronological order and the only thing you get are timestamps at the beginning of every scene to show you what happens when. This leaves you to put the pieces together and find out things that might just make the story that much more murky and unclear.

    The 10 Best NBA Video Games to Play

    The 10 Best NBA Video Games to Play

    Are you a sports gamer? NBA video games have consistently been a hit with fans of both video games and basketball throughout the years. While new updated versions continue to come onto the market each year with better graphics and performance, video game players continue to play older versions because of the nostalgia associated with them, certain game performance features, and because of their preference in consoles. While new versions are being developed and released, many gamers don't always have the resources to change up their gaming system; therefore, the older games continue to stay popular. We have made a list of some of the best video games you can play to emulate your favorite NBA team or player of all time, both new and old, for video gamers to enjoy. Check it out below.

    'Battle for Azeroth's' Cutscene Problem

    'Battle for Azeroth's' Cutscene Problem

    Blizzard's cinematics are some of the best in the industry, from the hype-inducing animations released before the start of every World of Warcraft expansion to the new story and character cinematics regularly released for Overwatch. Since Warcraft 3, Blizzard has carefully scrutinized its cinematics and been ahead of the industry in its desire to faithfully recreate its world in ten minutes or less. And with its latest, "Old Soldier," being hailed as one of its best, this is no less true today than ever; these cinematics put the player into the story in a way that almost nothing else in the game can.

    Playing Games—the Genius of 'Persona 5'—Value for Money & Personal Thoughts

    Playing Games—the Genius of 'Persona 5'—Value for Money & Personal Thoughts

    I have talked extensively on my thoughts on Persona 5 so it should come as no surprise that I have a certain fondness for the game. I first bought the game in February of 2018, and have sunk so many hours into it on my journey towards the platinum. At this point, 61 percent has been accomplished and there is a ways to go.

    Can We Trust "Big Name" Games' Journalism Outlets?

    Can We Trust "Big Name" Games' Journalism Outlets?

    As everyone in the gaming community has heard by now, gaming journalism giant IGN recently fired an employee for plagiarism. This firing has lead to the discovery of a pervasive pattern of plagiarism from this employee and the subsequent removal of many of his reviews. While this is certainly unacceptable behavior from a reputable journalism outlet, it's not the only reason to be critical of their reviews. IGN and similar journalism outlets, have a history of padding reviews with fluff and giving games a much higher score than they sometimes deserve.

    'SpeedRunners' Review

    'SpeedRunners' Review

    I picked up this game fairly cheap and figured it would be worth trying. First thing I did, as usual, was to start playing the campaign. I call it that because that is what the game calls it. In truth, it is more like an extended tutorial. And not that extended...
