Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 is a first-person box opening game, in which players open up a wide variety of boxes, lockers, and other assorted receptacles and see if they have enough space available to carry around whatever they find inside. It is also an addictive first-person shooter, but that seems at times like a secondary feature, when compared to all the boxes one ends up opening.

Review: “Halo 4″

halo 4

Xbox is the house that Master Chief built, so perhaps it was naive to hope that developer Bungie’s final Halo title, Reach, would actually conclude the series.

But, a few years pass, and Microsoft moves Halo development in-house with a new division called 343 […]

An Arcade Legacy

Since the exploding popularity of Street Fighter II in the arcades during the early 90’s, the initial appearance of the fighting game community has greatly changed. Consoles, DLC, and patches have changed the way players compete in their favorite game. Regardless of all the changes, there has been an unlikely staple; a possible core of the East Coast Fighting Game Community. Since “Eight on the Break” opened in 1973, not much has changed except for the games being played. Eight […]
