Another game release, another controversial ending. Following in EA's footsteps with Mass Effect 3, Square Enix has now pulled many of the same punches with the latest entry in the long-running Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy XIII-2. And as with my Mass Effect 3 review, this ending warrants a separate review of its own. If you want my opinion on the game itself, then here it is: Final Fantasy XIII-2 is possibly the best game in the series since 2002’s Final Fantasy X. I’m not sure if I would give ...

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Ending Review

In my last post, I gave what I referred to as a ‘technical overview’ sort of review of BioWare and EA’s latest epic: Mass Effect 3. However, as most anyone familiar with the game is well aware, there has been much controversy over the game’s ending. Therefore I found it necessary not merely to review the game as a whole, but to specifically spend some time talking about the game’s ending in particular. Unlike so many others out there, I don’t intend to rant about BioWare’s alleged laziness ...

Mass Effect 3 Review Part 2 – The Ending

From the very first announcement of Mass Effect 3, I was curious to see how the graphics would stack up against its predecessors. All three games in the series use Unreal Engine 3 (which, as a sidenote, happens to be my personal favorite engine on the market right now), but thankfully that’s not to say nothing has changed in how things look over the past 5 years. Mass Effect 1 being game developer Bioware’s first time using the Unreal Engine, it naturally lacked a lot of the detail and polish that even ...

Mass Effect 3 Review Part 1 – Technical Overview

Love Angry Birds games or hate ‘em, Rovio’s success with the franchise is undeniable. Since the original game’s debut in December of 2009, its creators have seen millions upon millions of downloads head their way on iOS, Android, PC, and Mac platforms alike. And just in case you’ve been living under a rock and have yet to play the game, last year it became available for free online, playable right in your browser. Numerous iterations have entered the series, such as Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds ...

Angry Birds Space - Review

Chances are if you happen to be one of the millions of Mass Effect fans out there, you’ve heard about Mass Effect Infiltrator, a mobile tie-in game for iOS and eventually Android as well. Chances are also high you’ve heard that the game is no good, and in fact is bad enough to rival Mass Effect Galaxy, the last mobile title for the series which performed so horribly that it was eventually removed from the iOS app store completely. But after playing Infiltrator myself, I am inclined to disagree with ...
