"Welcome back, 47."
The Hitman franchise has always followed the same basic formula. You're a bald guy in a nice suit. You have a target. You kill the target. Simple. It's hard to mess up, but on its own, it's not exactly fun or interesting. Anyone that has spent any time playing a Hitman game knows that there is a lot to that simple formula that the game build its base around. While the formula rarely differs, any fan will tell you that the games are very interesting and always memorable. Read more »

“Resident Evil 0 HD” Review
The Origins of "Resident Evil..." Now With Wesker!
Last year, Capcom released a remastered version of “Resident Evil Remake,” previously exclusive to the Nintendo Gamecube, for PC, PlayStation 3 & 4, and Xbox 360 & One (strangely not for the Wii U). Practically in the same period next year, Capcom remastered the prequel that has remained a Nintendo exclusive for many years- “Resident Evil 0.” Is this going to be a pattern with Capcom and the “Resident Evil” series? I wouldn't be surprised to see “Resident Evil 4” or “Code Veronica” being remastered next year while they work on the “Resident Evil 2 Remake.” Though I rather them be reminded on what made “Resident Evil” great than going away from it... i.e. “Resident Evil 5 & 6.” Read more »

Cherry MX 6.0 Board
A week with the loudest keyboard I’ve ever used
Every keyboard you see targeted at gamers has bells and whistles, this is a fact of life. Among all of these bells and whistles though, one thing always stands out as the pinnacle of features: mechanical keys, and when folks think of mechanical keyboards, the first name that pops into people's minds are Cherry switches. A few weeks ago, I was approached by Cherry to try out their new Cherry MX 6.0 Board (with Cherry red switches) and couldn’t turn down the opportunity to see what all the fuss was about. Read more »

A Horror Movie... Your Way
Decision-making games are usually a hit-or-miss genre for people. You either have games that are driven by your decisions (such as “Heavy Rain”) or more geared with story telling in mind (such as the TellTale Games series of games). People, for the most part, want the former because the game tells the players that their decisions will scope the story. I say that because the more story driven games tend to make player decisions worthless in the long run, such as “The Walking Dead Season 2” and “Beyond: Two Souls.” So with “Until Dawn” came back into the spotlight after disappearing from the PlayStation 3 era, people were skeptical. Would “Until Dawn” fall victim of being vaporware and be a lackluster title that doesn’t take decisions to heart or would it be the next “Heavy Rain?” Read more »
