Review: Inside (Xbox ONE, PC)

You’re running through a forest. There are men with guns and attacks dogs all around. You sneak as quickly and quietly as you can, but it’s no use. They are coming after you, and if they catch you, well, you don’t want them to catch you. In the opening moments of Inside, you will have no idea what’s going on. You won’t know why you’re sneaking past these armed men and their dogs and you won’t know why you’re a child that’s alone in the woods. The only thing you will know is that you have got to keep moving. You need to keep heading towards your goal. And, when you finally reach your destination, you’ll ask yourself “what the heck just happened?!” Hit the jump to read on! Read On

Mad Max – E3 Story Trailer

Mad Max – E3 Story Trailer

Leave it to another outlier game at E3 to get me all excited again. Last year it was Shadows of Mordor (another Warner Bros game,) a game that lots of people praised but was totally out of left field and a surprise hit. This year I have a feeling that Mad Max will be similar, much like the movie just a month ago (which was awesome and I highly recommend). Hit the link to see the new trailer!

Dark Souls III Revealed – Prepare to Die The Last Time?

Surprise! In a quick (although spoiled about a week ago) announcement, we now know that Dark Souls III is on it’s way into this world. What did we learn? I invite you to read on, dear reader (and/or masochist).

Releasing in early 2016 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC – this looks to be possibly the last entry in the Dark Souls series of games. With Hidetaka Miyazaki at the helm of this installment – after a hiatus from Dark Souls 2 to direct the lovely Bloodborne – I’m sure it will be a suitable ending.

PG! parties at Press Start: Irvine 2015

On Sunday, fellow PG! writer and Pixel Clicks Podcaster Jordan Pollock and I were invited to the first ever Press Start LAN to see what it was like to go to a LAN party “on PCP.” Long story short: it was a blast.

Jordan and I were both expecting a rather small event, maybe a hundred or so LAN goers, but that was not the case at all. Held at the Bren Events Center at UC Irvine in our native Southern California, Press Start threw one hell of a party.

[E3 2014] Battlefield: Hardline Impressions

[E3 2014] Battlefield: Hardline Impressions

The Battlefield franchise is near and dear to my heart. I have incredibly vivid memories of the huge hype leading up to Battlefield 1942, the bewildered excitement, the confusion. What do you mean I can be a soldier and drive a tank and steer a battleship? HOW?

Battlefield 1942 and its slew of excellent successors – Vietnam, 2, and especially 2142 – ran along the cutting edge of class-based, team-oriented objective multi-player in the competitive scene.  Battlefield has inspired many of the industry’s finest titles, from Star Wars: Battlefront to the Enemy Territory games, to Red Orchestra and a handful of others. Battlefield has always led the way in large-scale military multi-player mayhem.

The adage: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” doesn’t seem to be first in mind with the Visceral Games team for the franchise’s newest outing Battlefield: Hardline. They’re looking to take the franchise in a very different direction with a strong campaign featuring a TV-centric  episodic structure, big-name voice-over actors and likenesses, and a highly-modified multi-player dynamic. As per usual policy, EA has given Visceral the greenlight on a Beta test to run the new mechanics around the corner and see how they hold up. The Pixelated Geek staff, particularly PXL Plays! Johnathan Crass and your truly, have spent the last several days pulling heists and TASER-ing bros in order to bring you the most honest and grounded of impressions.
