PAX: An Exclusive Interview With Harrison Pink, Writer of Episode 3 of The Walking Dead Game

PAX: An Exclusive Interview With Harrison Pink, Writer of Episode 3 of The Walking Dead Game

Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead game is one of a kind. Never in my life has a game given me such extreme emotions of hate, depression, regret, it’s simply amazing the work that goes into these games – and I love it. A little over a month ago at PAX Prime, Chris Lock and myself had a chance to chat with the writer of Episode 3 of The Walking Dead, Telltale Games’ Harrison P...[Read More]

PAX: Hands On With Halo 4’s Multiplayer

PAX: Hands On With Halo 4’s Multiplayer

Leading up to PAX, there were a few games I had written down as must-plays. Among them were Gears of War Judgement, Dishonored, and at the top of the list: Halo 4. Ever since I got an Xbox for the release of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts-N-Bolts, I’ve always been a huge Halo fan, and according to game-tracking service Raptr, I’ve sunk a combined total of 673 hours into Halo: Reach, ODST, and 3. ...[Read More]

PAX: Hands On With Gears of War Judgement

PAX: Hands On With Gears of War Judgement

Leading up to PAX there were a few things I had set in stone that I needed to accomplish; Play Halo 4, meet Cliff Bleszinski, and play Gears of War Judgment. By noon on Sunday I had yet to accomplish the final of those three. I set out to the giant Gears of War Judgment stand and made my way through the line, sitting down at the final booth on the right. We were playing the newly unveiled Free-for...[Read More]

PAX: Hands on With Minion Master- Ohhhhh man…

PAX: Hands on With Minion Master- Ohhhhh man…

You like card games right? Sure you do. You also like table top games correct? “Well duh” is an appropriate response. Well then let me tell you about a game called Minion Master. The basic gameplay is as follows. You have a deck of virtual cards that you have built for matches. During a match you will receive five of those cards at a time. Each one of the cards has a “Play” and “Discard” point val...[Read More]

PAX: Hands on with Borderlands 2 – More gun than you can fathom

PAX: Hands on with Borderlands 2 – More gun than you can fathom

I have been looking forward to Borderlands 2 since Gearbox Software announced it was in development.  To say that I love Borderlands would be a colossal understatement.  I first bought the game for PC off of Steam and then later purchased it for my PS3.  I think Borderlands was brilliant at melding a hardcore RPG with an open world first person shooter.  It felt as good as any first person shooter...[Read More]

PAX: Hands on with Curse of the Nordic Cove – “Gorror”

PAX: Hands on with Curse of the Nordic Cove – “Gorror”

You know sometimes when you see a game and your brain just goes “…what?” Well that is what On the Level Game Sudios’ title, Curse of the Nordic Cove,is. This game is in a category all its own; that category being “First Person Golf Simulation/ Survival Horror game.” Yeah, you can go “awuhh” now. So here is what happened in this “Nordic Cove.” An archeologist named Dr. Howard Bre has un...[Read More]

PAX: Hands On With Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two – Oh Boy!

PAX: Hands On With Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two – Oh Boy!

While, in my personal opinion, there were very few reasons for anyone to pick up a Wii for anything other than Mario and Zelda, one title has always stuck out at me for being totally worth it: Epic Mickey. Receiving much fanfare and many positive reviews, Epic Mickey completely rebranded the well-known loveable mouse and integrated a darker steam punk tone never before seen in the Disney universe....[Read More]

PAX: Hands on with Guacamelee – Puns

PAX: Hands on with Guacamelee – Puns

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Well “they” are wrong; the true way to a man’s heart is through video game goofs and puns. That is at least how Guacamelee forcefully lodged its way into my chest. On top of the puns, which I frankly would have settled for, lies some amazing gameplay. This game is as Metriodvania as Metroidvania can get. In my short time with th...[Read More]

PAX: Hands on with DMC – More Flash than Lil’ Wayne

PAX: Hands on with DMC – More Flash than Lil’ Wayne

Upon starting the DMC demo at PAX Prime 2012, I was told by PR that there were two demos available. One, in which Dante is pulled into Limbo and you fight through demons and engage in some challenging, yet fun, platforming. The other, is a boss battle which we’ll get to soon. The first demo began with Dante walking down the street and slapping a Virility drink out of an overweight man’...[Read More]

PAX : Hands on with XCOM: Enemy Unknown – Welcome to Erf

PAX : Hands on with XCOM: Enemy Unknown – Welcome to Erf

Strategy games? I freaking love them. I love the classic style of RTS games for sure, build your base, build units, destroy everything ever. Always a good time. XCOM : EU is not RTS though, it is turn based and fans love it. Instead of constructing a command center on each level, you build, create, customize, upgrade, and research from your XCOM headquarters. You’ll select which type of unit...[Read More]

PAX: Dead Island Riptide Demo Impressions

PAX: Dead Island Riptide Demo Impressions

It is no secret that I did not enjoy the first Dead Island. I felt mislead by the amazing advertisement and promise of an open world zombie game. What I received was a series of fetch quests that actually made me hate zombies for a time. If I was not reviewing the game I would have just set it down and probably never picked it back up again. However, what I saw of Dead Island Riptide was enough to...[Read More]
