First Impressions: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

"Jesus. Jesus! Oh god no not the chocobo!" These were some of my first thoughts about Final Fantasy Type-0. Whereas most of the time, the opening cutscene in a Final Fantasy establishes, well, a fantastic tone. They sweep you in and b...

 
 
 

Review: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number

Dark. Disturbing. Grisly. Fun. If I had to describe Hotline Miami 2 in only four words that would be it. The game is sick, twisted, extremely difficult and asks some very poignant questions about the violence the player commits&n...

 
 
 

Love/Hate- Nintendo

Hello D-toider's! It's been far too long. Work has been crazy busy lately so between that and my youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTZ-EXTkaIg, how's that for a shameless plug) I haven't had as much time as I would ...

Retro Review- Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

For this month's GameTrip the topic is the Prince of Persia series. As such, I've been playing the games in the franchise just to get reaquainted with them and to have a more fleshed out opinion on the games. I've played Sands of Time...

 
 
 

Mobile Games are Not the Future.

If you, like me and many 'Mericans, watched the Super Bowl you probably noticed a few things. A) Holy shit when did advertising become a contest to make the audience as depressed as possible. B) YOU HAVE MARSHAWN LYNCH. And C) Boy the...

 
 
 

How can the MMO be Profitable?

Yesterday it was announced that after a lackluster launch period, The Elder Scrolls Online will go free to play as we all predicted. I personally didn't play the game but I had quite a few friends who did. The general consesus wa...

 
 
 

HD Remakes: How Much is Too Much?

This week, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection was announced. I was excited, simply because The Pre-Sequel arrived after I already made the switch to PS4. The addition of Borderlands 2 makes it somewhat more enticing but it also make...

 
 
 

Will 2015 be the Year of the Indie?

Over the past few years we've seen the indie game rise in relevance. What was once a niche is now a viable, profitable part of the industry. The past few years have seen the indie game co-exist with the AAA games. The AAA game was alw...

 
 
 

GameTrip 1-3: Endgame

The 3DS Diaries: One Man's Decent into Hell

It's been almost a whole week. And boy. What a week it has been. There I was, sitting at my desk on a Tuesday like any other, watching the Nintendo Direct like thousands of others. Then. Then they said it. They revealed the one item, t...

 
 
 

Don't Call it a Comeback: Today's Nintendo Direct

The latest Nintendo Direct dropped this morning and as soon as it was over, this was my immediate feeling. Now that I've had a few hours to let the dust settle and thing about the announcements. I'm feeling more like this. The Good F...

I Miss the RPG

Oh the good old days. I've started playing my copy of Dragon Age: Inquisition this week. I've had it for the last month but I waited until I got through Far Cry 4 and the first episode of Tales of the Borderlands before I hoped into i...

Top Five Disapointments of 2014

It's the last day of the year! While yesterday I looked back on positive experences of the past year, today I'm going to look at the more negative ones. Some of these games are bad and some of these, while not terrible, were simply dis...

 
 
 

My Top Five Games of 2014

Given that it's the end of the year I figured why not look back and think about the games I truly enjoyed this year? This list is in no particular order, it's simply a complilation of all the games that left the biggest mark on me this...

2014: Boulevard of Broken Games

  Well, we've reached the end of the year which means it's time for us to take a moment to reflect. On the highs and on the lows. Though this year, there seems to have been an awful lot of lows. Now don't get me wrong, there was ...

 
 
 

Seriously Guys, Own a Vita.
