Review: Hand of Fate 2

NOTE: This review is written based off of a review code provided by the developer.

From game developer Defiant Development, Hand of Fate 2 puts you at the mercy of the game of life and death. You sit at a table across from the man known as “the dealer” as he walks you through adventures and scenarios of his design. However, as you delve deeper and deeper into the game, you wrestle more control over your own fate while still at the mercy of the cards and the dealer. The dealer is preparing for something, what that something is, could mean something disastrous for you. Hit the jump to read on! Read On

Review: South Park: The Fractured But Whole

Review: South Park: The Fractured But Whole

There was a time when nobody thought a good South Park game could be made, and then, in 2014, The Stick of Truth was released. After receiving raving reviews and praise for The Stick of TruthSouth Park series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker vowed to never work on a video game again. The development process for the game proved to be much more physically and emotionally taxing than the duo originally expected. So after the release of The Stick of Truth nobody expected to hear about another game in the series. Fast forward to the Ubisoft conference at E3 2015, and lo and behold, we got a trailer for South Park: The Fractured But Whole. After two years, the follow up to The Stick of Truth is here!

Review: Metroid: Samus Returns

Review: Metroid: Samus Returns

Looking back through the Metroid series, there is one game that stands out as the worst Metroid game in the series. No, not Other M, although a strong case could be made against it. 

Metroid 2: Return of Samus is an odd duck in the franchise; it maintains the gated progression that Metroid games are known for while failing at the environmental story-telling that has become inherent in the series. The biggest complaint about Metroid 2, however, is that the game was stranded on the GameBoy. With that said, Metroid: Samus Returns by Mercury Steam looks to solve the issues that Metroid 2 had, while expanding on a game that a majority of Metroid fans have never played.

Preview: Destiny 2 (PC BETA)

Preview: Destiny 2 (PC BETA)

It was a short three days but the PC beta from Destiny 2 has officially ended. And with that, developer Bungie has seemingly done the impossible, make PC gamers legitimately excited for Destiny 2. This isn’t to say PC gamers didn’t want to play the original Destiny, many did and still do. What I am saying is, bringing Destiny to PC was Bungie’s game to lose. Ever since Bungie made the original Halo they’ve more or less stayed away from developing, or even porting, games to PC. With that being said, the Destiny 2 PC beta was near perfect. Hit the jump to read on! Read On

Jordan’s Top 5 Games of 2016

It’s 2017 and the year is already starting to show some promise in terms of video games. Big releases like Horizon: Zero Dawn, Mass Effect: Andromeda, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are just around the corner. But it’s because of these games looming in the distance that I can’t help but look back at 2016 and consider the games I played and loved. Although many would like to say 2016 was filled with disappointments (I’m looking at you Mighty No.9), you can’t deny that the year still had its fair share of awesome games that came out. It took me a while to really narrow it down, but these are my top five games of 2016 in alphabetical order. Hit the jump to read on!
