A Look Back At: The Darkness II Review

I often look back at games I played a couple of years ago and had a blast with and wonder if I played it again, would I still have the same amount of fun? I played The Darkness II a couple of days after it came out, I remember renting it from Love Film and binge played it all day without even taking a break (Yeah, I know – I didn’t listen to those ‘take a break’ warnings, but neither do you!) I mailed the game back to Love Film the same day I received it, completed, of course.…

Mars: War Logs Review

Mars: War Logs is an indie third-person RPG developed by Spiders. It takes place on Mars, where several different factions fight for water, two of the most notable being Aurora and Abundance. While at first the game feels clunky and ugly, I found it charming, exciting, and was ultimately happy to have played it. The game starts out with a boy named Innocence arriving at a prisoner-of-war camp. He’s told to go to the “sand pit,” which is basically a room filled with sand showers. There, he meets Roy, who defends him from the local bully, Fatso. I was…

Super Serious Open World Game – Saints Row IV Review

What if I told you that Saints Row IV is one of the best open world games out there? I am here to tell you why you should pick up this title. Don’t expect a semi-serious story that you get from the GTA games (this series will be brought up a lot). The Saints Row series stopped being sincere after the original. Aliens have attacked earth, and it’s up to you and the Saints to stop them. The writing here is top notch and jokes work well. It’s no where near as fun as the last iteration, but the…

State Of Decay Review

      In a world filled with Survival Horror games based around zombie apocalypses, it’s hard to distinguish good ones from bad. Finally I’ve found a satisfying survival game: Despite its flaws, State of Decay’s unique and original systems and structure have got me hooked. Your name is Marcus, and you’re returning home from a fishing trip to Mt. Tanner with your friend Ed. You’re attacked by zombies and after fighting them off, you head to a ranger station, where you meet Thomas Ritter and a few other survivors. You’re told to look for survivors in the cabins…

Out This Week: New Releases (July 21st – 17th)

Govind will no longer be doing the ‘Out This Week’ series, this is very unfortunate as I enjoyed reading them each Sunday. I hope that everybody will enjoy my version just as much! This week we have a high number of game releases, some I am looking forward to, some I already have and some I have never heard of them.   Mario and Luigi Dream Team  (3DS) 11th August 2013 As a new owner of a 3DS this is a game I will be looking to buy, just as soon as the price drops. Despite loving my 3DS,…

Bigger, Better, Bolder; PAYDAY 2 Hands-On (Beta keys giveaway!)

The original PAYDAY is a cult following among the fans, with OVERKILL’s dedication and time on the forums in tweaking the game for the better, we have a gem (no pun) of a developer. I know, because I am part of the fans out there that couldn’t stop playing it; the satisfaction of pulling off heists on higher difficulties, along with level and weapon upgrades. The Ordinary Gamer team had the privilege of getting an early access for the PAYDAY 2 beta. It stood out in so many ways, that it looks set to be THE textbook example of making…

Out This Week: New Releases (July 21st – 27th)

Summer sale ends tomorrow, so watch out for any last minute deals, that’s not going to stop new games from entering the fray this week with a lot of titles heading into almost all the available platforms, quantity isn’t an issue, quality, well that’s another story altogether. The first thing that came to mind when I saw the trailer for this week’s ‘Pick of the week’ is Murder on the Orient Express, a mystery novel that was published way back in 1934. Written by Agatha Christie. Now I am no reader, but my mom being a teacher always tried(the…

Out This Week: New Releases (July 14th – 20th)

The steam summer sale is on full swing but that doesn’t mean we should forget about the new games(except I almost did forget to write this article). This week brings a reasonable number of games the pick of the week for me is Shin Megami Tensei IV(NOT Persona), although I am not a fan of JRPGs, Persona is the exception, so I’m looking forward to seeing how SMT IV(not gonna bother writing the whole name out) plays. But the fact is, it’s coming out on the 3DS. I’ll have to bug Jake to do a review then.  Releases from…

Out This Week: New Releases (July 7th – 13th)

Another week has gone by, a rather quiet week as far as games and releases are concerned and this week apparently takes its cue from that one. There are some games coming out, but none that really caught my eye. If you are a college football fan you can be a happy puppy with NCAA Football 14, the first of the ’14 titles are out. Out of desperation more than admiration I’m picking it to be the Pick of The Week. I love NFL, but never played anything passed Madden NFL ’08, the last one that came out for…

Out This Week: New Releases (June 30th – July 6th)

Last week was a pretty good one for gamers, I had a hard time picking the pick of the week, but this week, it’s not as tough. Dark reappears as some last minute complications had delayed it to 5th of July, which sucked because I was waiting for the game for a while! Well, I suppose I could wait another week, or at the very least try.This week is a different kind of week, I’ve seen a lot of games supposed to release this week, but only 4 have actual dates. All the others seems to have “sometime in…

The Art Of Gears Of War Review

  To begin with I think it’s best to say that I have never reviewed an art book before, I’ve never even reviewed a novel! So when ‘The Art of Gears of War 3’ book arrived on my door step I had instant writers block.  Since I had recently completed the game ( I know, I know – very late) it was lovely seeing the art of this game, all the concept designing that went in to make one of the hits of the Xbox generation. The book was put together by Ballistic Media. They have been punishing…

Left 4 Dead Review

Will keep you entertained for hours. This is a game by Valve, on that piece of detail alone you can tell this game will be brilliant – ALL Valve’s games are! I have had this game since it came out, and I still have great fun on it now – a few years later. Story The main problem with Left 4 Dead is that it does not have a story, well, not much of one. The game involves a zombie Apocalypse and 4 characters trying to get  rescued.  Left 4 Dead is split up unto 4 acts, each act will have…

Halo 4 Majestic Map Pack

Brand new Halo 4 downloadable content set to be released on 25th February. The new maps will be Landfall, Monolith and Skyline – all of which are said to be ‘small to medium’ in size. I’m not sure how I feel about even more close quarters maps, I would prefer some more very large ones with many vehicles. The Majestic map pack will take you back 800 Microsoft points, but remember, if you have the war games pass – it’s free! Majestic adds 10 new Achievements for a total of 250 Gamerscore.   Check out the making of the Majestic map…

Aliens: Colonial Marines Single Player Review

Still a decent shooter that is pulled down by the terrible AI.   You’ve probably read the terrible reviews on A:CM, and they mostly hit the spot. However, my experience with the game is slightly different, and here’s how I look at it. I’m a big fan of the Aliens series, just to note. The one thing that plunged the game into the icy waters is Colonial Marines’ terrible, terrible AI. The Aliens (Xenomorphs), move and attack in very odd ways, running into your sight. Or in a hilarious turn of events, get stuck in the map’s geometry. On…
