The Arcade “Rally” Racer Returns: Dirt 5 Review

What is an arcade rally racing game anyway? That’s the question I continue to ask myself while playing Codemasters latest entry in their arcade rally racing game, Dirt 5. Much like previous entries in the Dirt series, you will be battling it out with several AI opponents in a variety of different racing game modes. Saying that this is a rally game is a bit of a stretch because unlike an actual rally game in … Read more

Pretending I’m a Superman All Over Again: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Review

The year was 1999 and in a decade full of great movies, music, toys, and video games, we were treated with another such video game of the likes in which we had never seen before. A game that is so important to the culture of the video game industry that it spawned other games that tried so hard to be just like it. That game would be Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, of which at that … Read more

Roguelike Wind Waker: Windbound Review

As much as I am a huge fan of the Legend of Zelda series, there has always been one game that stood out above the rest, Wind Waker. I’ve yet to ever try and find another game that is remotely similar to it until I was provided with an early copy of Five Lives Studios Roguelike game, Windbound on the Xbox One (also available on the Switch, PlayStation 4, Stadia and Microsoft Windows) where I … Read more

It’s Time! EA Sports UFC 4 Review

EA tries each year to make the UFC games a step-up from previous iterations. What I love about the UFC games is the fact that unlike Madden, NHL, or FIFA, the UFC games do not come out year after year. It has been since February of 2018  when the last UFC game, UFC 3, was released and this latest release is a definite improvement over UFC 3.  There are some things that have remained the … Read more

This Generations Video Game Masterpiece has Arrived: Red Dead Redemption 2 Review

  Rockstar Games is known for being a company that refuses to just pump out game after game year after. Something that not too many video game companies tend to do. It seems to me that video games, in general, have lost their art form. Taking the time to make a game is something that appears to be lost nowadays.  However, Rockstar has been one of a few companies that understand that patience is a … Read more

Sea of Thieves Review: Pirate Booty or Fools Gold?

  Rarely, (yes I made a Rare pun) do I ever get the chance to review a pirate game and the last great pirate game I can remember playing was Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. I remember playing that game and thinking “someone should do a massive open-world adventure game as a pirate” So, low and behold Rare decided to fulfill my dreams of being a pirate, in their latest game, Sea of Thieves but … Read more

Mercenary Kings: Reloaded Review

  I have always been a fan of old-school side-scrolling shooters of which my favorite is Metal Slug. There is just something about a game that has that Contra feel to it and this is exactly what Mercenary Kings: Reloaded, by Tribute Games, gets exactly right here. The game features you playing as one of four mercenaries sent out on missions in a central hub ala that of Monster Hunter where players can receive new missions, … Read more

Was it Worth the Wait? Destiny 2 Review

It’s been 3 years since the first Destiny was released and memories of its initial launch are filled with some pretty horrible memories. Loot drops were filled with some pretty terrible random ways of getting anything remotely close to being rare and legendary drops seemed next to impossible and after Bungie releasing a ton of updates the game became more and more playable. The first games biggest downfall was its complete and utter lack of … Read more

RAM, we all need it in our PC’s (yeah Macs are included here), Tablet’s, Phones, Consoles (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, etc) and just about any device that computes.  Windows 10 itself requires 2Gigs of it (64-Bit), if you are only running 2 Gigs in Windows you might be a little held back by what you can do.  Top it off with a web browser, applications, games and the likes and you are going … Read more
