This Game Will Fill Your Backlog With LIGHT!!!!

ScorchingDragon | Oct. 12, 2013 | Review of DmC: Devil May Cry

DmC Devil May Cry is the newest installment in the DMC series and also a reboot. This game is easily one of the best games I've ever played with it's beautifully stylish gameplay (you could say it the gameplay is the true graphical quality of the game), actually engaging and intense story (so rare for games like this!) and great sounds. The gameplay is fast and fluid, replacing the somewhat sluggish combat of previous games. The story is amazing, which is something completely unexpected from a game like this. As a hackn'slash game story is one of the least important aspects in the genre but this game defies expectations. It has some genuinely intense and dark moment unlike in any other game I've seen. Not explosions and gore but things like slight spoiler shooting a baby. The voice acting is great and Dante is a pretty interesting, cool and badass character. And he isn't an stereotype dancing emo like the internet haters keep saying, he's more of a funny psycho along with his brother Vergil. To put it short, if you like hackn'slashes get it. If you don't, get it anyway (I personally hate games like this and I think this is one of the best games I've ever played, so yeah.). If you like the old DMC games then get it too to see a a wonderful exapmle of a series evolution. If you LOVED the old DMC games then.... don't get it. This game (like the wildly hated FFXIII) are despised by fans of the old games for a reason: it's completely different. They're both fantastic games but so different from the old ones that it's bound to alienate the fans. It's like making making a Harry Potter movie and branding it as a Star Wars sequel. Harry Potter is great, Star Wars is great but making one a sequel of the other is so alienating and game changing that it's bound to be deeply hated by some and for very good reason. But either way this is a fantastic game that most, if not all, should enjoy.

The Complete Collection

ScorchingDragon | Oct. 9, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition (NA)

Not only is Borderlands one of the best games ever but the sequel is even better in every possible way. Gameplay is better and graphics are stunning. Humor is gold and content is massive. Guns are actually different now instead of just reskins like in the last one. Claptrap is one of the best game characters ever and he'll keep you laughing for the entire game. And with this being the GOTY version, you get the game plus all expansion to date so this is a terrific offer for those that haven't bought this game yet. Enjoy the open world, loot filled, gun blazing insanity that Borderlands 2 has to offer.

Probably Not What You're Expecting

ScorchingDragon | Oct. 7, 2013 | Review of Conflict: Denied Ops CAP

If your thinking to buy this game then you're probably looking for a Call of Duty like experience. If you are then don't buy it because this is very different. Graphics are slightly dated, sounds are fine and story is (obviously) pretty bad. Controls are very wierd on both M/K and controllers.

Gt it if you're familiar with the series but not if you're expecting a COD type game. Think of it as Army of Two but in first person.

One of the Best Sandbox Games Ever

ScorchingDragon | Oct. 4, 2013 | Review of Just Cause 2

Just Cause 2 is what you'd get if you combined Grand Theft Auto with a huge island, faster gameplay and a parachute. The game stars Rico Rodriguez, an operative for a group called "The Agency" (probably the one from Hitman) as he goes to the island of Panau to blow things up mostly.

Gameplay is great and open world and the island really is massive and flying by jet is the only real way of getting somewhere quickly. Graphics are gorgeous but voice acting and story is kinda meh. The reason to play this is for the fun in playing and not for it's storytelling. It has minor issues like ammo being gone too quickly but it's still one of the best open world games ever. Better than GTA IV even.
