In the Game – Ryse: Son of Rome

Ryse: Son of Rome

The word that best describes Ryse: Son of Rome for the Xbox One is anachronistic. Even though the game is rife with hilarious historical inaccuracies, it’s the gameplay and story that feel out of time and place. You play Marius, an ancient Roman legionary whose family is murdered by barbarians, and thus swears revenge against all barbarians everywhere. But Marius ... Read More »

In the Game – ‘Bioshock Infinite’ Possibilities

It’s kind of hard to nail down exactly what Bioshock Infinite is about. Its predecessors, Bioshock and the somewhat uncreatively named Bioshock 2 were thematically concerned with choice and parenthood. Infinite, appropriately, touches on both, but isn’t limited to either. Set during 1912, Bioshock Infinite takes place in the floating city of Columbia. High above the clouds, the denizens of ...

In the Game – Finding Adventure in ‘Tomb Raider’

TombRaiderBanner

There’s a bit in Tomb Raider where protagonist Lara Croft, recently shipwrecked on an uncharted island, has been captured and is being groped by another male survivor who obviously hasn’t seen a lady in quite some time. During the struggle with the man, Lara manages to take his pistol, and blows a part of his head off. This is usually ... Read More »

In the Game – Don’t be sad, it’s just ‘Crysis 3′

crysis3_web

Crysis 3, created by Crytek, developer of its sister series Far Cry, and the graphics engine, CryEngine3 tells the story of Prophet, a soldier wearing the futuristic Crynet nano-suit, who spends most of the game crying about all he’s had to sacrifice in his war against aliens. Boo hoo. Narrative To be honest that’s everything you need to know in ... Read More »

In the Game – Nintendo Scores a Critical Hit with ‘Fire Emblem: Awakening’

Fire-Emblem-Awakening-600x300

It’s not often when a game truly wows me. But when I originally tried the demo for Fire Emblem: Awakening, I knew I had to pre-order the game.

In the Game – ‘New Super Mario Bros U’ cannot 1up itself

New-Super-Mario-Bros-U2

It’s Mario. Really, what else can I say about it? It’s the same old platformer that it has been been for the last six years, ever since the New Super Mario Bros. series started. Well, okay, maybe not the exact same thing. There have been some minute changes, but it doesn’t do much to add anything to the overall experience. ... Read More »

In the Game – Wii U is Inventive but Directionless

wiiu_body

The Wii U is simultaneously exciting and puzzling. The new Nintendo console’s primary innovation is its controller, which has a touch screen in its middle. Though it looks unwieldy, it actually sits well in the hands, and doesn’t strain after an hour or so of use. Button placement is somewhat odd, however, as the face buttons (A, B, X, and ...
