Geek Citadel – Tales of Xillia 2 Review

It has been one year since the events of Tales of Xillia turned the lives of Jude Mathis and Milla Maxwell upside down. They saved the world from the Schism and tensions are high between the newly linked factions of Rieze Maxia and Elympios. Enter Ludger Will Kresnik, a man who just failed his test to become an elite agent in the Spirius Corporation. His judge was none other than his own brother, who he currently leeches off of in their small apartment. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Crawl

Remember the days when cooperative-play meant calling your friends over? Crawl remembers. It’s a game that dares you to get together with your pals and traverse a deep dark dungeon. Sort of like what you would do in a Dungeons & Dragons game, but with more incentive to kill each other off. In this local-multiplayer only title, it’s you versus friends as you battle your way to the final boss. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Gods Will Be Watching

Burden is a man with a loyalty to the mission he was given. He and his friend Jack were tasked with infiltrating the rebel group known as Xenolifer. As undercover operatives they will take orders from a man named Liam, the two must fool Liam into trusting them and stop him from obtaining the Medusea Virus. Of course, before the two can get what they were looking for, they are captured by an outside entity and the only man capable of saving them… is Liam. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Detective Case and Clown Bot in: Murder in Hotel Lisbon

Justin Case is a Private Investigator who is down on his luck. This could be due to the fact that he’s a drunken degenerate with little to no actual detective skills. Lucky for him he received a very special present in the mail, a domestic robot 9000 inherited from a long lost relative. The bot is not only good at cleaning, but it makes an excellent interrogator, and item storage device. The only thing that the bot is bad at is making jokes, and so Justin Case grants him the moniker Clown Bot.

Geek Citadel Reviews – The Wolf Among Us

We’ve all heard of fairy tales, and they usually have horrible endings or a happily ever after. What happens if the stories continued when the books stopped, and somehow those characters were pulled into the real world to live right under our noses? How would humans react to seeing The Beast or Mr. Toad right before their eyes? Would we embrace them, or hunt them out of fear of the unknown. That’s a place that Fables don’t want to be, and it’s up to B.B. to stop that from happening. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Sniper Elite III

Snipers in real life and in video games are seen as truly skilled shooters. In the Sniper Elite series you play as Karl Fairburne, a rather serious officer of the OSS heading behind enemy lines in North Africa. His task is to locate a dangerous weapon, while taking down a number of enemy officers on the way. It’s rather simplistic story and I can’t for the life of me remember any of it, but it’s more of a means to drive Karl into dangerous territory. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Quest for Infamy

The Quest for Glory series is one of my favorite adventure game loves. It introduced me to a more open-ended style of adventure game, with a class system, and an entertaining combat system. Infamous Quests clearly loved that series as well, as the Quest for Infamy embraces everything that made that series great. Instead of chasing after glory, the goal is to be as much of a terrible person as you can possibly muster. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark

The Transformers have returned and the War between the Autobots and the Decepticons continues. Each side is in search of the fabled power of the “Dark Spark” – a powerful relic that can stop time. Optimus and Megatron both seek out the Dark Spark, but a third entity is also looking to use its powers for dubious means. Travel back and forth between the past and the future, learning the history of the conflict between the two factions before they traveled to earth. Continue Reading

Gamer Value – EA Sports UFC Review (Bruce Lee Edition)

When I was young, I wanted to be just like Bruce Lee. I’d study his films with the intrigue that only a child could have. I’d kick, punch, and follow his movements during movies and rewind the key moments of all his films. I didn’t grow up to be anything like Bruce Lee, but I still consider him to be the epitome of what a fighter should be. I’m not a huge fan of watching UFC, but I love fighting games and I’m a big fan of the Fight Night series. EA knew how to convince an outside like me to get involved, just provide a skin of a man who practically made the world recognize Martial Arts. Continue Reading

Gamer Value Review – Enemy Front

Enemy Front takes us back to World War II with a serious tone. You play a journalist who is right up on the front lines with various Resistance fighters all over Europe. He joins up with each of these groups and writes down their heroic deeds, so that the world will one day know of the people who fought for freedom. That sounds like it could be the start to a pretty cool game… but that’s not at all what Enemy Front ends up being. Continue Reading
