Remember Me Review

In the game “Remember Me” you play as memory hunter Nilin, the best that ever was that is until your own memory gets wiped out and are imprisoned. You start the game dazed and confused in a cell just moments after you’ve been memory wiped, you still remember your name…

XCOM: Enemy Unknown: First Impressions

I’ve played 22 hours of XCOM so far, and it’s a tribute to the length and complexity of the game that I don’t know how far along I am. I reckon I’m far enough in to give some first impressions, if not a full review of the game. So –…

Borderlands II: First Impressions

Borderlands II is a riveting game that seems an upgrade over its predecessor in almost every department. I’ve played up until level 12 on three characters so far, with my current favourite being the Commando. The classes in Borderlands 2 seem a lot more interesting than their predecessors: A gunzerker…

Diablo 3 First Impressions

Diablo III is an interesting game for me to cover – Diablo and Diablo II were massively important to me as I became a PC gamer, and Diablo III is both completely updated and yet entirely the same as it always was. Let’s look at what’s changed first. I’d say…

Mass Effect 3: First Impressions

Mass Effect 3’s ending is bad, and Bioware should feel bad. That’s the sentiment on the internet these past few weeks since the game’s release, but it’s silly to condemn what has otherwise been a widely acclaimed game for a poor turn at the end. I’ve been playing the Mass…

Star Wars: The Old Republic – First Impressions

MMORPGs are an utterly unique genre of videogame. Not in their actual mechanics, which are the logical combination of single player RPGs and multiplayer aspects, but in their Siren-like appeal to publishers. Many big franchises have gotten into the business, and all have been dashed upon the rocks of Blizzard’s…

Review: Shank 2

Shank 2 is the video game equivalent to a Grindhouse flick. Awesome story, hero asked to save the day and gory as hell. For the last reason alone should be a good indication of the type of game your getting into. And if you can read between the lines, it…

Review: Madden NFL 12

Madden NFL 12 is back this year and while the number goes up every year the settings, features and upgrades Madden fans requested have arrived.  I have to give it to EA Sports for keeping the franchise fresh year in and year out.  Before an official NFL season even begins…

Review: Bastion (XBLA)

At the recommendation of fellow PerezStart writer AduceClean I picked up Bastion, Microsoft’s first game of this years “Summer of Arcade”. Bastion is a fast paced, customizable action-RPG with a solid story. The graphics are bright and colorful, almost like a painting come to life; pure eye-candy. While the main…

Retro Review: King Arthur’s World (SNES)

  I consider myself a pretty big fan of the SNES library, but every once in a while I find a game that I never played on the system.  In this case, I found a game that I had never even heard of. King Arthur’s World is an excellent side-scrolling…
