Butterfly Effect: Steins;Gate Review

Steins;Gate first came out for the XBox 360 in 2009. It was shortly thereafter adapted into a manga and, later, an anime series and an animated film. It was recently ported over to Steam* for Windows. Steins Gate.  Some know it as Fate; to others, it is the will of God. The game starts off… Continue reading Butterfly Effect: Steins;Gate Review

Review: 7 Days to Die (Early Access)

7 Days to Die is a voxel based “survival horde crafting game” with a tower defense feel being developed by The Fun Pimps. Set in a post World War 3 apocalyptic world where a new virus causes dead human beings to return from the dead as zombies, you must gather resources and the knowledge to use them to survive. And right now, it looks to be one of the best, if not the best, zombie genre games ever.

Think survival horror meets Minecraft and you've got a good idea of what this game is like.

If you're like me, you love the zombie genre, but are sick of all the half-assed attempts at zombie survival games out there. Well, be sick no longer, friend. 7 Days to Die is the elixir you've been waiting for!

The first thing you're going to notice when you start up your first single player game or multi-player server is the huge amount of customization available in the setup menus. Whether you want a Walking Dead style game experience, 28 Days Later type, or something in between, it can be done in the setup menus. I assure you though, the first thing you're going to want to do when you start up is to turn the difficulty and zombie spawn rate down.

This game can be very unforgiving at “normal” settings. You've been warned.

About two months ago, I got a text from our editor, Ryan, telling me I should check out this game called Spellfall.

Review: The Elder Scrolls Online

Let's just say that when I heard that ZeniMax Online Studios were developing an online Elder Scrolls game to be published by Bethesda Softworks, I was less than excited. I felt that the aptly named Elder Scrolls Online seemed like a cash grab using an intellectual property that was better than that. Don't get me… Continue reading Review: The Elder Scrolls Online
