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
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
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
We’re back with an actual rating system for the Gamer Value series, and we try it all out on Noir Syndrome! Check out this Elevator Action style title from Bombadeer Studios!
One Hour Gamer is no more, but we’ve created a more robust show that values your time versus money. Entertainment value is a big deal in the gaming industry, and companies know how to put a price tag on it. As an insider, I can understand that just because a game costs $59.99, doesn’t mean it was worth that price after all is said and done.
This is the final episode of One Hour Gamer, and we take a look at a story driven RPG called Richard & Alice. I want to thank everyone that watched these episodes, and hope you enjoy the show that replaces it. Thanks for watching!
I make it my business to try to play as many Open-World games as possible. I’m an absolute fanatic for titles like Grand Theft Auto, and I do my best to get my grubby little hands on them all. I was definitely prepared for Watch Dogs on its initial release, but a couple of warning bells began to ring when it was suddenly delayed right after the release of GTA V. Continue Reading
I admit it; I love everything about adventure games. I’m especially a sucker for the ones featuring detective elements of any kind. Yet in this odd and twisted world, I have never played a single Tex Murphy title. That’s right, not even Mean Streets or Martian Memorandum. So I figured it was time to break my fast of Tex games by stepping into the world of Tesla Effect. Tex Murphy returns after the events of Overseer, and things have changed in the world of the not-so-famous detective. Continue Reading
Before I begin this review, let’s address the elephant in the room. Yes, this is a dating-sim aimed at men. That means you will see quite a few scantily clad women characters, and the main goal is to try to coerce them into liking/loving the main character. So if you have any problems with women being objectified, or playing a game designed around chasing young anime girls… you’re going to have a bad time with Conception II. Continue Reading
