Well, if you're a fan of the MI franchise, you can't go wrong. They're both the exact same games that were released on the PC years ago, with updated graphics. You can also switch between the new/classic graphics on the fly as well. That's all I can say about them, really. Whether they're worth $10 a piece, is up to you.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instincts

Not nearly as bad as most are saying but this definitely isnt AAA material. There is a nice element of choice seeing as you cant save all the possible survivors in even 2-3 playthroughs and visit all of the locations. The voice acting is preety good and the visuals are average. Reminds me a lot of the first L4D game. There are side missions, collectables and plenty of weapons you can find to dispatch walkers. Youll probably like it more if youre a fan of the material. A full playthrough takes about 4-5 hours and it is a single player only game.

7/10

Gears of War: Judgment

As a massive fan of the greatest TPG game currently in the world, youll either love or hate Judgment. Plenty of things that made Gears what it is (active reloads adding damage, DBNO, COG v Locust, etc.) have been removed. You now also pick a single starting weapon instead of a rifle and a shotgun. I enjoyed the story, and adding the ability to be rated in each chapter is nice along with adding a Declassified Mission which adds another level of difficulty to your mission.

Along with the main campaign, you unlock the 'Aftermath' campaign which is a companion to GoW and occurs while Marcus is trying to get to Azura. You take on Baird and co. and have crossover events with the Marcus storyline. Good stuff that feels more like the Gears we know.

Horde mode is gone which is a huge blow but it is replace with Survival. A 1-10 wave battle much like Horde that ramps up difficult very. very fast. It is a good substitue.

OverRun is a fun mode pitting Locust against COG in a battle to destroy/defend keypoints on a map. Fun stuff but some balancing tweaks need to happen.

Everything else is your standard GoW experience. With so many changes, its a try before you buy game for sure

8.5/10

Bioshock Infinite - Irrational Games are officially gaming Gods. I'm about five hours in, and this is already in my top 3 games of all time. No joke. It's simply incredible. From the very first second of this game, it grabs hold of you, and never lets go. I had force myself to quit playing. Columbia is one of the most immersive gaming environments ever created. Words can't do it justice. You just have to experience it.

Now, as far as the actual gameplay goes, it's nothing all that innovative. It's an FPS with some really shiney bells and whistles. It's basically Bioshock, with a whole new set of powers and abilities, and then some. So much so, that the game is easy as shit. You are a killing machine from the very first enemy encounter. You can't really "die" either, you just get reset where you were, minus some money and health. Not to say it isn't fun as hell though. The game is constantly throwing new abilities at you, that it never really gets repetitve. You want to see what everything can do, and just how creative you can get on the battlefield. It's all really fun stuff.

What the game really excels at, is exploration. Much like the original Bioshock, you'll want to uncover all of the world's secrets, and leave no stone unturned. Audio logs, special equipment, power ups, unique weapons, and secret messages, are all over the place, and you won't be satisfied leaving an area, until you've uncovered them all. It's insanely addictive, as you've probably already guessed by now.

As a gaming experience as a whole, it's flawless. Buy it. Play it. Love it.

10/10

Couldn't have said it better myself. About 3-4 hours in for me and I'm blown away. Ambitious, beautiful, and crazy fun. Love everything about it so far.

Is it too much to ask for a Rescue Rangers reboot as well?
Day one purchase for me. I played the fuck out of the NES cart.

Final Fantasy XIII

haven't played a game on console in a while. A short conversation I had with Oxley on Facebook made me want to play some games on my home theater
