Bimmy_Dingus | Nov. 5, 2013 | Review of Bioshock Infinite

I was never really interested in the original Bioshock, I felt that the gameplay didn't back up a truly unique setting. I wasn't too excited about playing Infinite until I installed it, straight from the off I knew I was in for something special, whereas the twist in the original Bioshock was a total surprise, I was trying to second guess it all game, I was nowhere close. The voice acting from Troy Baker and Courtney Draper is fantastic, and you totally buy their relationship in the game. I have finished this game twice, and am currently on my 3rd playthrough, it's a game and setting that somehow manages to feel fresh and exciting even after 2 playthroughs. If you like video games with stories rather than drab corridors and a shooting gallery full of nondescript villains, then this game is for you.

A Dark Night for Batman?

Bimmy_Dingus | Nov. 5, 2013 | Review of Batman Arkham Origins

I bought this game with high hopes, I would rank Arkham City in my top 5 games of all time. However, straight from the off tthere was something that didn't sit right with me whilst playing Origins. The combat felt off, I noticed myself getting sucker punched alot more in Origins than I did in City, I've read reviews that seem to imply that this is because Bruce Wayne has only been Batman for 2 years, meaning that he isn't the seem fighter we have seen in Asylum and City, although, that seems like a get out of jail free card under the circumstances. The story, in my opinion, was a lot better than it had any right to be, with Troy Bakers Joker being a highlight. I was slightly disappointed to find out that there were only 4 real assassins in the game, the other 4 are side missions that can be wrapped up quickly. The new gadgets seem a bit over powered and makes me wonder, why would this Batman get rid of gloves that could punch through riot shields? All in all, this game is a disappointment, but then again, how could it not be? It's still satisfying to swoop in and stop a crime in progress, and the story is worth at least one playthrough.
