Best Game of 2013

tonyz3t | May 9, 2014 | Review of BioShock Infinite (NA)

Bioshock Infinite is probably the greatest game to have released in 2013, and maybe even in a long time before that. This game as a great detailed, and intricate story that develops beautifully. As you traverse the story mode, you start feeling sympathy for the characters and actually care about them. The areas in this game are amazing, and probably the best in any game. Set in different times in the flying utopia known as Columbia, Bioshock Infinite sets a captivating display of visuals and sound. The game has stellar storytelling and even better gameplay. If there was a video game definition of perfection, this would be it. This game is a definite buy and deserves to be in everyone's video game library.

Get Some Friends Along

tonyz3t | May 9, 2014 | Review of Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition (NA)

This is one of the best games that I have played in 2013. It's a long game at this price you're getting your bang for your buck. I would recommend playing this game with another person because playing it alone at times gets boring. This game is meant to be played with a group of friends and you get the biggest return when playing as a group of 4. The game play is spot on as each class brings something different to the table. The story is great and the characters are greater. The world is massive and adds a wide variety of enemies to face off against. Get 3 friends and buy this game. for $20 with all 4 DLC this game is a steal.

Short Period of Goat Greatness

tonyz3t | May 9, 2014 | Review of Goat Simulator

Goat simulator is probably one of the greatest simulator games I've ever played. There are a lot of simulator games out there, most of them are complete and utter garbage that no one should lay eyes on, but this is one that everyone should play. The game is great...momentarily, but it has those moments of fun that can be relived if you decide to come back to it at a later time and play again. The game only comes with one map, but with the steam workshop there is an endless supply of user created content. If you like goats and simulators, then you're going to love goat simulator. Go ahead, show the developers some love and buy this game.

Dark Souls 2 Review

tonyz3t | April 29, 2014 | Review of Dark Souls II (NA)

What can I say about dark souls 2? It is a great game that challenges gaming prowess and pushes you to the limits both mentally and physically. Dark Souls 2 has interesting level design, difficult challenges, and even more difficult bosses, but is this game superior to its predecessor?

Dark Souls 2 is an action adventure, RPG game that tests your patience. There are a multitude of different classes in the game to start off with including a knight, swordsman, warrior, sorcerer, and some others which I cannot remember. If you are new to the series, I would suggest playing as a sorcerer as it gives you more freedom while fighting enemies and bosses and allows you to create distance between them to practice your dodging skills. The game is extremely difficult and unrelenting , but not impossible. With every agonizing death there is an even more satisfying victory lying ahead. The boss battles in the game test your might, but are defeatable if you memorize there attack combos. However, if you become greedy even in the slightest while fighting the bosses, you will be punished. Dark Souls is all about the difficulty, and it delivers effectively.

Although Dark Souls 2 is a difficult game, it is not as hard as the first one. However if you do find the game a bit easy for your liking, you can always burn a bonfire ascetic at the bonfires to increase the difficulty of the immediate area. The Dark Souls series has always been about facing dangerous bosses and overcoming difficult obstacles, but this game isn't that difficult. Save for a few bosses, including the Smelter Demon, the bosses in the game were pretty forgetful and easy. I managed to clear a majority of the bosses on my first attempt. Most of my deaths in this game also came from me trying to make impossible jumps and falling, or accidentally rolling off the map while trying to dodge. However there is an area late in the game that is so painfully difficult, that it will potentially cause the arteries in your brain to burst. The story in this game is also forgetful. To be honest, I don't even know what the story in this game is, but I don't care because this game is really fun and all I came for is the challenge.

In the end, the game is great and still difficult, especially if you're a beginner. There were a few changes that I liked in this game, for instance being able to teleport from bonfire to bonfire in the beginning, and some things that I hated, for instance only being able to level up by talking to the emerald herald. Other than that the game is excellent and delivers well. If you're new to the series or even veteran, I suggest you pick up this game.
