Guild Wars 2: Post Script

I hit the wall. I saw it coming but it couldn’t be avoided: I’m done with Guild Wars 2. We took a month off earlier this year when we started to get a little burnt out and came back feeling a little renewed, but it didn’t last that long....

InMomentum mini-review

InMomentum, developed by Digital Arrow, has gone through quite a few changes since inception. This game was originally slated to be released as a mod but then went commercial. It also started development on Unreal Development Kit but switched over to Unreal Engine 3. The gameplay itself is quite...

In Conclusion: Fable 3

Far Cry 2

I loved Far Cry, but Ubisoft’s second incarnation of the “series” had nothing to do with it. The original was developed by Crytek, who, since they didn’t own the rights, went on to make Crysis. The story itself played out in the tropics with a heavy sci-fi influence. Far...
