World of Final Fantasy Review

Full disclaimer: After being incredibly disappointed in Final Fantasy XIII I was turned off from the franchise as a whole. I still love and will always love IX which is my all-time favorite, followed by XIII. I thought I might never find myself exploring a new game in the series, and then they showed me a world …

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir Review

When I found out that there was a remake for Odin Sphere coming out, I was overjoyed. I missed out on the original when it came out in 2007. So when Atlus announced Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, I ran out and plopped down enough to secure myself the Storybook edition. And I am so very glad that I …

Fallout 4 Contraptions Workshop DLC

Remember last week when Bethesda announced at their E3 presser that we were getting new Fallout 4 DLC starting this month with the Contraptions Workshop? They showed us elevators and sorting machinery, and I’m pretty sure there was a version of the classic board game Mousetrap shown off in the preview video. They had me at …

It’s been an awful long time since Until Dawn was originally announced, and I’ve been stalking all news of this B minus teen slasher movie ever since. It came out this past Tuesday (sadly no midnight opening at my GameStop for Madden meant I had to wait until that night to pick it up) and over the …

LEGO Dimensions Wave 1 Level Packs

My favourite family-centric video game series, LEGO titles never seem to disappoint us. We’re two grown adults with no kids who looks forward to sitting down to some couch co-op when new titles launch. We also love to build LEGO. No joke. The LEGO Store is a dangerous and wonderful place, especially those 3-pack build your own LEGO people …

Destiny: Alpha vs Beta

After being lucky enough to enjoy both the Alpha and Beta releases of Destiny (thank you, Bungie!!), I thought I would just share a few thoughts about both experiences. I’m not the most hardcore shooter fan, I stopped caring about Halo after the original trilogy game and I’m not into Call of Duty. When I …

How the PS4 Won Our Pre-Order

I want to preface this by stating for those who do not know me very well that I am not a fangirl of any Big Three console makers. It’s always been that I get the systems that have the games I want to play. Last time around I got the Xbox 360 before my PS3 …
