January 27, 2017 A little boy tumbles onto the screen after falling down a cliff. He needs to run. I know this instinctively, so I make him run. Moments later mysterious men in masks drive up, they send dogs after him, they try to shoot him, they chase after him. Why are they after him? [...]

January 6, 2017 Within seconds Gears of War 4 establishes itself as a true Gears game. While many games force the player to watch a lengthy introduction before being able to jump into the gameplay, Gears 4 blends the introduction with short playable flashbacks. These scenes look gorgeous and serve to reintroduce the world of [...]

June 23, 2016 I held off playing Assassin’s Creed Unity for a long time because of the overwhelmingly negative response it got upon its release. From what I read the bulk of the criticism seemed to focus on a tremendous number of glitches in the game. I surmised that the game was simply released before [...]

Published by Ryan Cave In Xbox One No Comments

Beyond Eyes is a unique and beautiful concept for a game. Unfortunately, it lacks the magic that its charming pastel presentation suggests. Beyond Eyes puts us in the shoes of a sweet and lonely little blind girl named Rae as she explores the area beyond her front yard to find her cat. As Rae roams [...]

Apparently most people never finish or even play the campaign modes in Call of Duty games. While I admit I often don’t finish them I never skip them entirely. I’ve always seen the campaign in games such as this to be the foundation of the world that the game creates. An example of this would [...]

Tomb Raider is one of my favorite franchises and the reboot in 2013 brought it back to life and gave it a new identity. Previously Lara Croft was always somewhat undefined, but now we see what intense horrors and incredible discoveries forged her into the adventurer she has become. Rise of the Tomb Raider seeks [...]

I’ve loved Mega Man for as long as I can remember. The insane challenge of the series has always appealed to me. I have an ancient memory of a childhood party where we all took turns desperately trying to survive Mega Man 2. I think that was the moment that the franchise forever took hold [...]

Sometimes I don’t feel like yelling at my Xbox One. Sometimes I just want to pause a movie the old fashioned way. At launch there were two ways to control the Xbox One: with your voice or with the controller. Both have their place, but neither is always ideal when it comes to some of [...]

I got excited when a new Fast & Furious movie was  announced. I got excited when a new Forza Horizon was announced. I got very excited when a game combining both of these wild franchises was announced. Not only were two great franchises coming together, but the game would be free (for a limited time). [...]

Limbo

Published by Ryan Cave In Xbox One No Comments

Microsoft, as a reward for my being an “early adopter” on Xbox One, gave me a code for a free copy of Limbo. Limbo originally came out back in 2010 on the Xbox 360 and I loved it. It’s a game I have often considered replaying, but since it’s primarily a puzzle game I wasn’t [...]
