An Open Letter to Sony Regarding Call of Duty DLC

An Open Letter to Sony Regarding Call of Duty DLC

A little background info: In case you hadn’t heard, DLC for the next Call of Duty game will be available first on PlayStation. If you’ve ever been a fan of the series, you’ll know that Microsoft has always had DLC first. This is the first time in history that Microsoft has not been ‘the home of Call of Duty’. Ahem.. Dear Sony, When I heard that you were bringing us DLC for Black Ops 3 first, I was disgusted. You lagged behind in popularity last generation with the PS3’s lackluster online play and abundant bugs. Don’t get me wrong,... Read On

DC Entertainment Expands Primetime Roster

DC Entertainment Expands Primetime Roster

For a while superhero genres were restricted to the big screen. The only TV series I remember that actually lasted more than 2 season was that god-awful show Smallville. But, on a positive note, our favorite vigilantes are slowly taking over the small screen one step at a time. Shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, The Flash, Arrow, and Gotham are just a few of the popular prime time television shows ruling cable nowadays. However, DC Entertainment has big plans and has released some bits of information on their upcoming roster of superheroes hitting your TV set (not literally but you get my drift). The first...

A Dota Player’s First Impressions of Heroes of the Storm

A Dota Player’s First Impressions of Heroes of the Storm

It’s been a while since another MOBA really caught my eye- Dota 2 is my main game, and I’ve been popping into League of Legends from time to time in order to learn a thing or two (I have some friends who play) and I at least tried my hand at Dawngate before the game shut down. Not too long ago, Blizzard announced that they’d be trying their hand at everybody’s favorite new genre with a MOBA called Heroes of the Storm, a game that combines characters from Blizzard’s various games (Starcraft, Diablo, Warcraft, etc.). As a fan of Dota 2, I have some familiarity with... Read On

Life is Strange First Impressions and Launch Trailer

Life is Strange First Impressions and Launch Trailer

I’m going to start this off by making the strangest video game connection (no pun intended). Never since Persona 3 & 4 has a video game nailed the dynamics of high school life. Cliques, nerds, jocks, and faculty are all accounted for. Coming fresh off of two back to back Telltales titles I was a little reluctant to jump back into another adventure game but I found the conceit of the game too intriguing to pass up. Maxine Caulfield is a high school student who in the opening moments of Life is Strange’s first episode awakens to a time... Read On
