Written by: Nick Farinola // Published by: Joe Ahart Let me preface by saying that this article is more of a way to help me decide what I want rather than an in-depth analysis of all the exciting new game releasing in Q4 2019. I’m having a personal dilemma; two vastly different games from two beloved franchises of mine are […]
Written By: Nick Farinola // Edited By: Joe Ahart Remnant: From the Ashes, developed by Gunfire Games (who you may recognize from Darksiders II and the recently-released Darksiders III), is a third-person, rogue-like, action RPG with many elements heavily borrowed from the “Soulsborne” series, developed by From Software. This game has been on my radar for some time now, but […]
Written by: Nick Farinola // Edited by: Joe Ahart Area 51 is somewhat of a hot topic online. Whether you call BS on the siege or not, you can’t deny the interest behind the idea of wanting to know the history of what goes on behind the sealed doors of the notorious and highly classified US Air Force base. Do […]
Written by: Nick Farinola // Edited by: Nick Farinola and Joe Ahart When I think of video games, the first thing, or person rather, that pops in my head is Master Chief from the Halo series. Halo is the prime example of a jam-packed, epic AAA-game with a massive budget allocated to the developers and publishers to spend on […]
Written by: Nick Farinola // Edited by: Joe Ahart It’s tough giving anything, let alone a video game, a perfect score. Calling something a masterpiece seems completely subjective. What defines a masterpiece? Generally, it’s widely accepted as such by a large audience. Christopher Nolan’s Inception is a not only a technical masterpiece, but also a narrative one. 2018’s incredible God […]
Written by Nick Farinola // Edited by Joe Ahart Let me take some time out of your day to share with you my brutally honest opinion of Fallout 76. Ah, the infamous Fallout 76. By now, pretty much half of the videos on my YouTube feed cover Fallout 76…and how much of an “atrocity” it is on the gaming […]
By: Nick Farinola // Edited by Joe Ahart // Odds are you’ve probably have never heard of Earth Defense Force. Admittedly, it sounds like a campy, ‘80s sci-fi B-movie. If you guessed that, the good news is that you’re not very far off. The Earth Defense Force series is the video game equivalent of […]
By: Nick Farinola There’s nothing quite like assassinating your targets with a hidden blade in the historically accurate settings of the Assassin’s Creed games, severing the limbs of Dead Space’s frightening necromorphs on the USG Ishimura spaceship, or mutilating space Nazis with combat axes and a weapon that fires self-detonating explosives in the Wolfenstein reboot series. Violence is a prevalent […]

By: Nick Farinola I haven’t played the Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Beta yet, and yes, I’ve bought every single Call Of Duty title since the third entry. The beta drops this Friday for Xbox owners who have also preordered the game for its October 12th release, while PS4 users have been playing […]
By: Nick Farinola Now that E3 happened some two months ago, it’s time to look back on some of the announcements that had a ton of people hyped for the upcoming months of new releases. Anthem, though promising premise, now shares too many aspects with Bungie’s Destiny in both its gameplay and its aesthetic. […]

Written by Nick Farinola // Edited by Joe Ahart Innately, humans are a curious, highly intellectual species. We have an ability that stretches beyond all other species — a unique voice inside of each and every one of our noggins. We can think for ourselves, make assumptions and feel emotions. The power is intoxicating, yet we continue to show a […]
Caught amidst a torrential storm of shit-posting, down-trending Reddit comments, and sheer mockery of their loot box progression system, EA was battered and beaten over a game that should have been a complete layup. So, what went wrong?
Studio MDHR’s Cuphead is a run-and-gun side-scroller that follows closely in the footsteps of 2D action titans like Megaman and Super Mario. Like these predecessors, the game requires precise timing, platforming skills, and pattern recognition to beat bosses and progress through the four main areas of the game. But, Cuphead is much more than an attempt to recreate the glory days of side-scrollers and platformers. It is a unique game with its own challenging twists and incredible art style that pays homage to the era of 1930’s Cel Animation.
