Review: Remember Me

Produced by Dontnod Studios and published by Capcom, Remember Me is an adrenaline-fueled action-adventure game set in a cyberpunk dystopia in which human memory has become commoditized and monopolized by a giant corporation called Memorize. You play as a talented rebel “memory hunter” named Nilin, who begins the game in prison with her memory removed. Under the guidance of a […]

Review: Aliens: Colonial Marines – We should know better by now…

There were some reasons to have hope for Aliens: Colonial Marines. Despite the fact that Sega’s name was attached to it, despite the fact that there hadn’t been a genuinely good first person Aliens game in years, despite the troubled development process… ok, so maybe there was only one real reason to be hopeful

Backlog Quest II: Day 31 – Secret Service: Ultimate Sacrifice – Ultimate backlog material

Dear Journal, Today I finished Backlog Quest II by throwing myself into harm’s way to protect The President of the United States of America. I say that Secret Service: Ultimate Sacrifice is “ultimate backlog material” because it is that game you’ve probably see on the budget/value rack a dozen or so times and just never picked up. It never really […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 27 – Top Gun: Hard Lock – Insert joke about the Danger Zone

Dear Journal, Today I got all sorts of caught up in the danger zone. Also, I flew a plane. The only thing worse than a movie-tie-in game is a movie-tie-in game made for a movie that came out over twenty years ago right?  Well, normally one would be inclined to agree (though I have hopes for Aliens: Colonial Marines), and […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 25 – Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends – Needs more testing

Dear Journal, Today I got to drive some of the most iconic cars in Ferrari’s history. Sadly it was mostly downhill after that.  Truth be told, up front right now, Ferrari Racing Legends shook me off pretty quickly and I didn’t complete the game’s story mode. It has a really solid idea behind it, but awkward controls and a very […]

Backlog Quest II – Sidequest: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine – Gears of War(hammer)

Dear Journal, Today I played a Gears of War game set in the Warhammer 40k universe. Shortly after its release, I heard a lot of good things about Space Marine but with the abundance of higher profile titles I never got around to buying it.  When it popped up as a freebie on Playstation Plus, I knew the time was […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 20 – Medal of Honor: Warfighter – Don’t tread on me

Dear Journal, Today I saved the world from some smelly terrorist. In discussing the previous Medal of Honor I made the comparison more than once that Call of Duty was like any of Michael Bay’s many explosion filled films where as MOH was more along the lines of Saving Private Ryan or The Hurt Locker. Yes, there is action and […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 15 – Battleship – You sunk my expectations!

Dear Journal, Today I played a generic FPS that actually had a fairly cool component tacked on. It seems that movie-tie-in games make up a fairly large portion of my backlog. Battleship joins the ranks. Based on the 2012 action flick, which is based on a board game, which is based on actual war, Battleship has you fighting an invading […]
