PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Resident Evil Zero’

Resident Evil Zero, HD, Remaster, Capcom

Even with a significant visual upgrade and a modern control scheme option, 'Resident Evil Zero' is still one of the weakest entries in the Resident Evil series. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 4: A Block and a Hard Place’

Minecraft, Story Mode, Episode 4, A Block and a Hard Place

Minecraft's "Block and a Hard Place" features significantly more puzzle solving, but Episode 4 is one TellTale's poorest examples of "interactive storytelling" yet. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Just Cause 3’

Just Cause 3, Action, Adventure, video game

'Just Cause 3' is definitely an upgrade, but it comes at an expense. All of the new toys don't mean a thing if you don't have a time or a place to use them. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 3: The Last Place You Look’

Minecraft, Story Mode, Episode 3, The Last Place You Look, video game

'Minecraft: Story Mode - Episode 3: The Last Place You Look' is surprisingly more action-oriented than its predecessor, but the series is still best suited for 10- and 12-year-olds. The rest of us will have to see which series Telltale Games will continue next. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series – Episode 6: The Ice Dragon’

Game of Thrones, TellTale Games, Episode 6, The Ice Dragon

It's been four months, but Episode 6: The Ice Dragon does its job, as a finale well, even if no one will be really happy with where it leaves off. TellTale's 'Game of Thrones' series doesn't break any new ground, but fans of the television show and books should definitely give it a look, and hopefully, a second season isn't far off.

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 2: Assembly Required’

Minecraft, Story Mode, Episode 2, Assembly Required

On its own, and clocking in at under an hour, Assembly Required is easily the weakest offering from the long-time adventure game maker. Fortunately, TellTale's 'Minecraft: Story Mode' is clearly marketed towards a younger audience, and fans of the original game, who are a lot more likely to forgive all of the game's shortcomings.

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Tales of Zestiria’

Tales of Zestiria, Japanese, RPG, PlayStation 4

This is a surprisingly accessible and well-executed Japanese role playing game. However, longtime veterans of JRPGs may find the narrative and overall game framework unremarkable compared to more niche titles in the genre. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Life is Strange: Episode 5 – Polarized’ from Dontnod

Life is Strange, Episode 5, Polarized,

While Polarized is arguably the weakest of the five episodes, Dontnod's indie-film approach to adventure games is commendable. If you try only one new game franchise this year, make sure it's Life is Strange. The title redefines narrative in modern gaming. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Tales From the Borderlands: Episode 5 – The Vault of the Traveler’ from Telltale Games

Tales from the Borderlands, Episode 5, The Vault of the Traveler

Telltale’s formula is actually fairly entertaining. If there weren’t others moving into the spot of gaming real estate Telltale has staked out, the developer might still be contending for “Game of the Year” honors. Read More »

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 1: The Order of the Stone’

Minecraft, Story Mode, Episode One, The Order of the Stone

Minecraft: Story Mode is made for the original Minecraft game's largest demographic, which is decidedly younger than those who have been playing TellTale's recent adventure games. It remains to be seen whether younger gamers will appreciate such a story-heavy game, particularly with TellTale's delivery issues. Read More »
