Assassin’s Creed Unity: Liberty was only a Pretext

To start things off, I will first admit that I only started playing the Assassin’s Creed series on the 4th one, Black Flag. Who can resist the lure of playing pirates for goodness sake. That being said, as it was only next generation in the sense that it was still designed with the older generation in mind, I was expecting quite a lot from Ubisoft. I enjoyed Black Flag and Watch_Dogs, and am actually thinking … Read More

What makes a game fun? Episode 002 – Choices

Heroes of the Storm, a -very- playable Alpha

One would think that the MOBA genre is quite over saturated. You`ve got Dota, LoL, HoN, Smite and probably a dozen more similar games out there, competing in the same Arena. At least that is what I thought, and it seems I was wrong. Blizzard, one of the massive game development companies, known mostly for their Warcraft and Starcraft series, decided to push into the market, by bringing us “Heroes of the Storm”. So far the … Read More

Where Is My Game Now ? Call of Duty Advanced Warfare

I have been a Call of Duty player since the beginning of the series and have held on as long as I can. It’s so sad when you really want to make a gaming purchase but the weight of the flaws and the lack of confidence in the developer and publisher prevent you from buying. Sad really is the word that describes my feeling best when a COD follow up game misses the mark more … Read More
