Back in 1993, there was a game that came out on PC that really caught my eye and it was one of the reasons I had to have a PC. That game was MYST and it is a game that still holds sentimental value to me. Over the years we have seen the game and its sequels go from PC to consoles to handhelds to even mobile devices. I knew from the moment I saw the game and later played… Read more.

So when I heard Developer ZenFri Inc. was making a game where you are the last human taxi driver… Read more.
The future is a wondrous place. It's full of life, automated, and full of possibilities. You had everything. A great place to live and a great place to work. That is until you were replaced.

I mean you do have the government watching and there are no pandemics, but hey at least you get… Read more.

Our past, present, and future can be a puzzling aspect. When we are younger, we don't think about how things may affect us in the future.

It is really quite… Read more.

When PlayStation VR first came out a year ago, there was a collection of games that came with it. That game was PlayStation VR Worlds. The one game that I really kept coming back to was the London Heist. It brought something new and refreshing by putting you right in the middle of the action. The immersive feeling it gave to you as you picked up the cigar to put it up to your mouth, then to be in the car and look… Read more.

Do you remember when you were younger and when it was story time and as the story was being told, your imagination begins to show the story in new ways?

Spies have always been thrilling and full of mystery, adventure, and suspense. A Good vs. Evil story being told.

But does Developer London Studio bring the action and bring those wants to an immersive adventure?… Read more.
The role-playing element has been out for ages. From the times you gathered with your friends to roll the dice and play the cards to the cartoons and movies being watched to even the controller in your hand. For some, it may be a way to live another life in order to escape our own or it may be a way to have our character increase in power or the decision to end that character’s life. The imagination, the situations… Read more.
What if you could enter a mind? What if once you entered the mind what you knew was generated for you in a reality that is not known, but reimagined of how one reality could become the normality? What if you were the one being tested as the subject? These were some of the questions I had in what I experienced. But do Developers Spectrevision and Ubisoft Montreal and Publisher Ubisoft allow us to enter one’s mind…to become the experiment… Read more.
There was something special when Until Dawn came to PlayStation 4. From the graphics to the story. Something just kept wanting us to be in that world.

They took what works in Until Dawn and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and made a prequel worth playing in The Inpatient for PlayStation VR. Like I mentioned, The Inpatient is a prequel to Until Dawn that has psychological elements… Read more.
A house, a murder, and a motive. Every since I played the board game it was fun to see who was the suspect with what weapon in what room. Then when the movie came out, it took what I loved about the board game and brought it on the big screen to have that inner child smile. The Invisible Hours by GameTrust and Tequila Works have taken the formula of a board game to a classic movie and made it the new… Read more.
