Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise has seen quite some incarnations across all kinds of media. What started out as a small comic book blew up big in he 90’s when it got its own Saturday morning Cartoon. Since then it has seen movies, a live-action show, multiple incarnations of the cartoon show and naturally video games. Throughout the 80 till now companies have been pumping out video game and it seems TMNT has seen some better success back in the day. The arcade Beat ’em ups from Konami are still considered as some of the best Beat ’em ups ever made. Fast forward to today where TMNT games aren’t doing so well anymore. But the people at Platinum shine a ray of hope onto the franchise as their licensing team gets the opportunity to take on the legendary franchise. Sadly what had the potential to be an amazing game turned out way worse than anyone could have expected.


Review: Dead Island: Definitive Collection

Five years ago, one of the best trailers ever created emerged on the internet. Dead Island promised to bring back the forgotten zombie genre and if we could believe the trailer, it would do so in a very emotional way. The actual game dropped the emotional idea and gave us a great zombie slayer in paradise. The game sold well and got its sequel. Now both games and the retro arcade spin-off are bundled in the Definitive Collection with improved graphics. Is it worth playing or should we continue our wait for Dead Island 2?

Hands-on: PlayStation VR

I was invited today to check out Sony’s Virtual Reality headset. This was not at E3 and so the demos I played aren’t any E3 demos and are a bit older. With the HTC Vive and The Oculus Rift finally on the market, VR is now an official commercial product. People can actually own a VR headset if they own a relatively high-end PC. But for those of us who don’t own a PC and want to experience VR will have to wait until Sony releases their VR headset. In the meantime, I got to check out The Deep, The Heist, Battlezone and Until Dawn Rush of Blood.

So did Playstation VR convince me or after finally using the headset, do I think it’s just a gimmick?


Review: The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine

The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine is the newest expansion pack of The Witcher 3, a game that released a year ago. It’s impressive to see this kind of dedication of a developer since Blood and Wine feels like it’s far more than just a new expansion. Blood and Wine sets a new bar for future DLC plans since it feels more like a sequel than an actual expansion.


Review: Overwatch

Blizzard isn’t an unknown studio by any means. They are responsible for some very influential and critically acclaimed games. It has been a while however since the studio came up with a game that isn’t based on any of their existing I.Ps. Insert Overwatch a new I.P. from Blizzard that’s in a genre they have never tackled before in a style very unlike any of their other works. A team-based first-person shooter is a departure from their previous ventures. Should Blizzard stick with what they know or is this new frontier one they will also conquer?


Review: Tales from the Borderlands

Gearbox took a great risk in making Borderlands. Who knew that this gruesome and yet cartoony world, full of strong language and dirty minded side jokes would be the next big thing of Gearbox Software and 2K. This unknown game made its way into the triple AAA- game market and set the bar high for co-op first person shooters with an RPG twist to it. It was a game where Claptrap, Handsome jack and Tiny Tina fitted in perfectly without any worry that they might become one of those weird quirks no one would even dare to talk about due to their weirdness…. As a matter of fact, the opposite happened, all these iconic characters became a big part of the cosplay universe and got the attention they deserved. Eventually, top games end and sequels arise while a loss of connection to the “aftermath” is most likely inevitable. So, Telltale came with a solution and (hopefully) created the next chapter in the Borderlands franchise. Let the tales be heard!


Review: Homefront: The Revolution

Philadelphia 2029, America is on its knees. The Korean army managed to disable to American war tech and invaded the country. The result is an occupied city and an oppressed population. It’s not the American dream, you’ll have to fight for survival or go with the rules the Korean army forces you to follow. A revolution is about to happen here; too bad the game itself isn’t revolutionary at all.


Review: Fallout 4 DLC Far Harbor

One of my favourite thing to do in the Fallout universe, is just to walk around and explore. Until today, I still haven’t finished the main storyline (to be honest, I only just discovered the Institute). It is not because I don’t care about the storyline, I just can’t help myself not to find out what the next location on the map is. With the new DLC Far Harbor, it is time for me to start walking again, to gaze upon the creations of Bethesda’s universe.


Review: Doom

Doom will always remain a very special game for me, because it was the first ‘real’ game I got my hands on. I remember shooting those demons in the circles of Hell as a kid and can’t believe how far the franchise has evolved since that day. Bethesda released a new reboot of Doom and brings back the essentials of this fast-paced first person shooter. Forget everything you learned in games like Call of Duty, Doom is an entirely different game.
