When I read about Evan’s recent foray into the wilds of Toronto to participate in the Evolve ‎event, I was pretty stoked to get my hands on Turtle Rock Studios’ hunt-or-be-hunted game, Evolve. Besides being a tightly-designed (and fun) game, this title managed to do something that most multi-player shooters fail to do: get me to look forward to playing the game with other people.

To Infinity and Beyond
Sam Flynn and Quorra

By Jorge Figueiredo - February 21st, 2015


When I was a kid, one of my favourite movies was Tron. It was so different from anything that was out there – and yet, there was something very familiar about it. Of course, shortly after I saw the film, I would play Tron: Deadly Discs and Tron Maze-a-Tron on my Intellivision at home, reliving the exploits of my electronic hero. Fast forward to the future, when Tron: Legacy hit the scene. I was pretty excited about it, and enjoyed the movie a lot (a lot more than most of my friends, anyway). So, it was a pleasant surprise when Disney Infinity included some Tron-based Power Discs. Now, in an interesting move, characters from Tron are available to play in Disney infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes – but they aren’t your typical Disney Infinity figures. In fact, they aren’t physical figures at all – they are completely DLC for iOS.

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

By Jorge Figueiredo - February 16th, 2015


LEGO Batman is back in his biggest adventure yet in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. In Traveller’s Tales’ most ambitious to date, Batman (and the Justice League along with the Lantern Corps) have to take on Brainiac, attempting to foil his attack on the planet Earth. Familiar controls and characters combine with some new mechanics, suits and schtick to create a great experience. If you don’t care for the LEGO game formula, you probably won’t care for this one, either. However, fans of the series won’t be, and should enjoy this game, even if the focus isn’t entirely on Batman.

Grow Home

By Jorge Figueiredo - February 15th, 2015


‎Grow Home, developed by Ubisoft Reflections, is a neat little PC title with a basic story – but with an excellent hook. This third-person adventure game will have you controlling a robot who has been assigned the daunting task of growing a massive plant in the hopes of saving the planet. It’s not a long game, and it is definitely a very different title from Ubisoft’s normal fare – but it is entertaining and charming, and the open world is fun to explore.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers
20th Anniversary Edition

By Jorge Figueiredo - February 9th, 2015


I never played the original Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, so to be able to review the 20th Anniversary Edition (Phoenix Online Studios, Pinkerton Road Studio) was like opening up a time capsule. It is quite clear that this title was created for the fans, since the story and characters are somewhat dated – but with updated puzzles and improvements in the aesthetics, this point-and-click game is enjoyable, if one has an open mind (and some patience).

Five Nights at Freddy’s

By Jason Wesley - February 8th, 2015


Let’s start off this article with a note: I’m not very good at horror games. I have played only a few of them, but the few that I have played are genuinely creepy to me, no matter what the topic: zombies, psychological, physical violence or genetic experiments. But animatronics? I wasn’t traumatized by the Chuck E. Cheese’s when I was a kid. So why am I scared, and yet, fascinated, by Five Nights at Freddy’s?

SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism

By Jorge Figueiredo - February 3rd, 2015


Recently, I reviewed the ‎SteelSeries Siberia V3 Prism headset, and found them to be a decent pair of headphones. While they sounded good, they didn’t blow me away, and the lack of in-line control caused me to scratch my head in puzzlement. SteelSeries also sent along another pair for review: the V3’s big sister, the Siberia Elite Prism. Let me tell you, even after spending a small amount of time with it, my experience with that headset was a lot different. Comfortable, easy to use, and great-sounding, there is a reason why these headphones are named “Elite”.
