Diablo II | Review by Gallifrey

Hello gamers and a very, very happy Friday to you! Clicking away in the #36 position… Diablo is probably the greatest franchise that, in all honesty, really has no business being as good as it is.  If there is anything that makes me believe in my heart of hearts that Blizzard is the best developer on the planet, it’s the fact that they made Diablo as enthralling, addictive and fun as they did.  Let’s be real about this; every Diablo game adheres to the following sequence: click click click click death click loot click click click click death click loot. ...

Grand Theft Auto III | Review by Gallifrey

Hello gamers and welcome to day four of week thirteen in our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown! Causing a stir in the #37 spot… So…Okay.  I’ve been looking forward to and dreading this moment.  I have the opportunity to go on a truly epic rant about the Grand Theft Auto series.  On the other hand, I have to resist the urge to just write “Fuck this game”over and over for this entire review.  I’ll be honest, I’m not really interested in walking you through the nuances of Grand Theft Auto III.  Why?  Because there aren’t any.  If there’s one thing...

Deus Ex | Review by Gallifrey

Hello ladies and gentlemen, welcome to hump day in our 13th week! Conspiring in the #38 position… Okay, truth time:  I’ve never played Deus Ex.  “Then what the bouncing fuck are you doing writing a review for it?”, one might rightly ask.  Well, nobody else on our writing staff has played it either, and being the nice guy that I am I valiantly volunteered to bullshit my way through it.  I was going to try to get a little time playing it before I had to write this article but I, uh, didn’t.  Hey listen, those raccoons who keep trying...

Grand Theft Auto V | Review by Gambit

Hello gamers and welcome to the close out of week twelve in our countdown! Stealing our hearts (and cars) in the #41 position… Ah, Grand Theft Auto, you saucy minx. You check in every so often to give us, (and the, oh so lovely and completely rational media), some ripe controversy that get everyone’s panties in a twist. Not only was Grand Theft Auto V adherent to this trend, it actually did its part to kick it up a notch or two. A little bit of water boarding here, a few thousand F-bombs there, and just the right amount of...

Super Mario Kart | Review by Exemplaris

Hello again gamers and welcome to day four of week twelve in our 100 reviews in 100 days! Swiping that pixely checkered flag in the #42 position… When you get invited to the Racing Game Party (What?  That’s totally a thing), Mario Kart is the friend you invite along because you know he’ll do something absolutely insane that everyone will be talking about the next day. Most racing games are about the realism of the cars, about physics and speed, but the most fun I’ve ever had in car-based games are ones that skew more towards Rush and it’s sequels....

Assassin’s Creed 2 | Review by Exemplaris

Hello gamers and welcome to day two in week twelve of our countdown! Freerunning Its Way Into The #44 Position… When the first Assassin’s Creed game broke onto the scene, it got a ton of love from fans and critics.  It moved more copies more quickly than anyone anticipated.  The game was original and fun, but most people who loved it also admitted it had flaws; namely repetitiveness. Assassin’s Creed II filled in the gaps and diversified the game play a bit. With a rich story and immersive environment, both in the past and the present story lines, Assassin’s Creed...

Team Fortress 2 | Review by Thor

Hello ladies and gentlemen, welcome to week twelve of our 100 reviews in 100 days! Going for the hat trick in the #45 position… Competition in multiplayer video games is a constant these days.  The never ending fight between the red and blue teams spans across multiple different games and platforms.  Team Fortress 2′s entire concept is centered on this battle.  Most current-gen games involve some form of multiplayer, but the Team Fortress series is only about the multiplayer.   TACTICS AT ITS CORE Team Fortress 2 was originally announced in 1998 by Valve, as a sort of sequel to the...
