Thoughts on Destiny

Destiny's Taken King expansion alienates casual fans more than Year One did

Destiny has noticeably improved since The Taken King dropped. This is partly because there's a lot more to do than just grind the awful Prison of Elders activity from the last bad expansion, but additionally, the game has gotten m...   read

Review: Transformers Devastation

I've been a fan of Transformers since I was old enough to understand what television was. The bright colors and toy lines drew me in, but I've been a fan ever since. It's not merely nostalgia that fuels that fire -- it's an entertainin...   read

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5

I grew up with the Tony Hawk franchise -- at least, Neversoft's vision of it. Game after game, even some of the more questionable ones, held my interest until Proving Ground led the series astray. But in 2007, the studio was ...   read

Review: Destiny: The Taken King

Year One Destiny players got taken for a ride. It's very clear that Bungie shipped an unfinished game, riddled with questionable design decisions, a bare-bones story, and a distinct lack of content. Hell, the developer was even struggl...   read

Very Quick Tips: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Metal Gear Solid V, from a gameplay standpoint, is one of the most complex titles in the series. While it was fairly easy to understand the limited amount of gear you were provided with in past entries (everything was basically drip-fed ove...   read

Review: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Despite the fact that most of the spinoff Metal Gear games are good in their own right, they just don't get me excited the same way the mainline console editions do. Every core Metal Gear entry has something new, and off...   read

Review: Madden 16

I do feel, some, for Electronic Arts and the people responsible for making Madden every year. This is only my 4th year (out of  27 releases) covering it and I fear I may have peaked with last year's review. But like a fringe player wit...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Reckoning

Review: World of Tanks

World of Tanks is a selfish game. It acts selfishly in that it hides information from its players, expecting them to figure out any and all intricacies on their own. Similarly, it asks its userbase to roll into combat as a team, but on...   read

Review: Life is Strange: Dark Room

Review: King's Quest: A Knight To Remember

Not all revivals or remakes instill a sense of nostalgia within me. For instance, if we ever got that sequel to Kabuki Quantum Fighter we were promised in the original's credits, I wouldn't be all that excited. But King's Quest? I have...   read
