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!

Review – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition and Mods

By guest columnist Rich Kuhaupt.

The land is in chaos; civil war has begun, vampires and werewolves roam the cities and countryside unchecked, bandits lie in wait for unsuspecting travelers, frostbite spiders, draugr, daedra, hagravens, giants, and rogue mages are everywhere, and now dragons have returned! The time has come to return to Tamriel and save Skyrim.

This past October, Bethesda Softworks released their remastered RPG “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition” for the PS4 and Xbox One consoles, and while it may not have contained all the changes and upgrades some fans were hoping for, it’s more than worthy of addition to any RPG fans’ PS4 or XB1 library.

Return to Arkham – How well does it age?

Return to Arkham – How well does it age?

I purchased the Xbox One with the dream that the Batman Arkham series would be backwards compatible; getting a remastered version of both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City was taking that dream and adding frosting, with bacon. Safe to say I was more than a little excited to revisit the series – though there was a nagging doubt that perhaps the game didn’t age well. Well, I put on my utility belt and grapple hooked my way into Arkham. I was more than surprised what I found.

Top 3 games of PSX 2016

As is customary for the PlayStation Experience, indie titles were out in full force on the show floor. Although I didn’t get a chance to check them all out, I’m going to take this opportunity to shout out the titles that really stood out to me. To be honest, it’s not that hard to catch my attention: does the game have an interesting mechanic attached to its gameplay? Does it have an awesome soundtrack? Is it a MetroidVania style game? If the answer is yes to any of these, chances are it caught my eye. So, without further ad0, here are my top three games of PSX 2016! Hit the jump to read on!

The Highs and Lows of the PSX 2016 Keynote

The PlayStation Experience has come and gone for another year, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t bring some good and some not so good stuff with it. As with last year’s keynote, PlayStation came in swinging and left the room full of PlayStation fans impressed for the most part. Granted there were a few moments where it seemed Sony might be dropping the ball, but they quickly made up for it by doing what Sony does best: cater to their audience. And with that, let’s take a look at what the internet thought was the greatest thing of all time, and what was the worst thing to ever happen ever. Hyperbole is fun!

Review: World of Warcraft: Legion

Review: World of Warcraft: Legion

Twelve years after its launch, World of Warcraft still remains the biggest MMORPG in terms of user base and arguably the best around. Newer MMOs try to copy what WoW does, but none have bested the titan that is the World of Warcraft. Although, the game has seen a notable decline in recent years. This was most likely due to the slow trickle of new content from its previous expansion, Warlords of Draenor. However, with the advent of LegionWoW is seems poised to make a full-on comeback.

In fact, due to the Legion’s launch, WoW has seen its biggest spike in sales since 2010’s expansion, Cataclysm. At the time of this writing, Legion has been delighting fans with new questing zones, interesting dungeon encounters, artifact weapons that level up with you, and so much lore that’ll have you scouring every nook and cranny for answers. But does it have the legs to keep the community around?

Review: Worms WMD – Xbox One

Review: Worms WMD – Xbox One

Before the popularity of online gaming the term multiplayer had a different meaning. Well okay, it meant the same thing literally, but there was something special about having a friend over in the real world and playing a game together. There are a handful of games that do this, but Worms took it to a whole other level.

After countless iterations of Worms, Team 17 has returned to the realm of 2D and frankly it’s good to be back. How does this game hold up in the franchise? Is it another sit-on-the-couch multiplayer?
