Life is Strange is a world you'll want to lose yourself in photo
Life is Strange is a world you'll want to lose yourself in
by Brett Makedonski

Gamescom is a noisy, crowded mess. Shoulder to shoulder with patrons that didn’t seem to care what they bump into, I trudged my way to my next appointment. As I stepped through the door to the meeting room, something unexpected happened. I was teleported from a loud convention center to a rebellious teenager’s room.

Seated at the foot of a twin-sized bed, I took in my surroundings. The top of a makeshift television stand housed a half-smoked joint, while a pair of dirty Converse rested underneath. Posters of influential punk rockers littered the wall, all askew. “Fuck” was scrawled on almost everything, but especially a tattered American flag.

I wasn’t in Germany anymore. I was in Arcadia Bay, Oregon. More specifically, I was in Chloe’s safe place -- the only spot in the world where a misunderstood teenage girl can be herself. I was inside the world of Dontnod’s newly announced Life is Strange, and it was a wonderful place to be.

Command a tiger that can turn invisible in Far Cry 4 photo
Command a tiger that can turn invisible in Far Cry 4
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Far Cry 3 had some pretty wild moments. Like, remember when Vaas was dancing around on the stripper pole? Good stuff. Far Cry 4 will have some crazy segments as well, but these are a little more grounded to the core of the game. 

Scattered around Kyrat are hidden tankas that, once discovered, allow the main character to meditate and travel to Shangri-La to relieve the life of a legendary warrior. You'll be transported to a surreal world with floating islands and you are equipped with only a bow and arrow to take on the enemies of these environments. 

Oh, and you have a tiger that you can command to attack others. The tiger can also turn invisible.

Until Dawn is my kind of horror

I am a little baby when it comes to horror movies. I just can’t. I can’t sit and force myself to stare at a screen that will make me scream and flinch. That’s not fun to me! The opposite is true when it com...

Assassin's Creed Rogue gives you more open ocean goodness photo
Assassin's Creed Rogue gives you more open ocean goodness
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was a huge game. Like, you could easily sink 100 hours into that whole experience before getting 100 percent completion. So Assassin's Creed Rogue may or may not be quite the game for you. It just depends, really.

If you couldn't get enough of the pirate sailing and high seas traveling, then you'll be all over Rogue. (Those of you stuck on last-gen platforms, at least). If you've had more than your fill already though, well, Rogue may not have enough to offer you. 

Personally, I'm in the camp that's excited for Rogue. More so than Unity, in fact. The open ocean stuff still intrigues me enough to warrant another adventure on a map that's comparable to Assassin's Creed IV's. But more than that, I like the idea of playing as a Templar this time around.

Here's a better look at that Sunset Overdrive White Xbox One

My Xbox One already looks dirty. Scummy, even. It's not just the fingerprints and dust in the grooves, either. I don't know what they did with their plastics or build or whatever, but mine looks like hell and it hasn't even b...

Oh hell yes: There's a new Toy Soldiers for PC, PS4, and Xbox One

Signal Studios' Toy Soldiers games -- particularly the second, which let you run around and blow up tanks as a Rambo-esque action figure -- were loads of fun. Think tower defense, but with living toys, and you can take activ...

Which games are you hiding with the latest Steam Beta update?

Where do you hide your pile of shame? If you're anything like me it's probably along some dusty, untraveled road on a moonless night, a quart of Evan Williams in your coat pocket, your trusty shovel in one hand and a newly-pu...

Grand Theft Blade Runner: Flat Earth's Metrocide

Described as a brutal stealth-action game inspired by titles like Syndicate and Grand Theft Auto, Flat Earth's Metrocide has me very, very interested. With a visual style that appears right at home in Devolver Digital's st...

First-person shooter Toxikk wants to frag like it's 1999

First-person shooters have come a long way since we called them "DOOM clones" back in the nineties. After Halo, Call of Duty, and Gears of War, most have class-based gameplay, role-playing game elements, regenerating health,...
