by Nazih Fareson July 8, 2017
After WipEout and Parappa The Rapper, as we wait for the remake of Final Fantasy VII, the Japanese giant continues with its nostalgic re-release of iconic PlayStation releases thanks to Activision this time, with a Crash Bandicoot compilation of all first three episodes called Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. This trilogy includes the original 1996 […]

Review: Skylanders Imaginators

by Nazih Fareson November 29, 2016
What started in 2011 as a side project in the Spyro universe is now probably the most popular interactive toy gaming franchise: Skylanders. The saga is a yearly release since the original version, bringing happiness to young (and older) gamers, but also intense damage to your wallet because of the large number of figurines to buy in […]

Review: Call of Duty Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered

by Mazen Abdallahon November 13, 2016
When Modern Warfare first hit, it was a phenomenon. I tried it at a cybercafé with some friends and I hated it. I couldn’t figure out the movement, the realistic shaking of the gun when I ran was disorienting, jumping made no sense, the quick TTK meant that I was getting one-shotted in seconds; in […]


Review: Destiny: Rise of Iron

by Nazih Fareson October 8, 2016
Now officially entering its third yearly development cycle, Activision and Bungie’s Destiny is continuing its seasonal expansions (now becoming a yearly Fall follow by Spring DLC every year)  to give more farming fuel for its loyal players. Following the major fully-fledged expansion pack Destiny: The Taken King which got me personally hooked again for a long while, […]

Review: Call of Duty – Black Ops III

by Nazih Fareson November 22, 2015
Another year, another November, and of course another Call of Duty. After the complicated relationship with Infinity Ward, which led to the foundation of Respawn Entertainment (producers of Titanfall with EA), Call of Duty goes through a yearly rotation between Sledgehammer, with Advanced Warfare and Treyarch this year with Black Ops. Deemed as the messiah of the Call […]

Review: Guitar Hero Live

by Nazih Fareson October 27, 2015
While Rock Band 4 launched a few days, marking the return of rhythm game peripherals, its eternal rival Guitar Hero could not help but follow the same track. However, while there was a time when both licenses positioned themselves on the same direction, by offering similar gameplay, Activision intended to completely overhaul its known mechanics to provide […]


Review: Skylanders Superchargers

by Nazih Fareson October 22, 2015
No matter what happens, a year cannot go by without Skylanders – the original bring toys to life game – doing a comeback in both new toys and videogame. This year, Activision decide to shuffle things around by bringing vehicles in the Skylanders Superchargers mix, after last year’s “Pokemon” like Trap Team gameplay elements. Is it worth it though? The […]

Review: Transformers: Devastation

by Nazih Fareson October 17, 2015
Quite busy lately, PlatinumGames is a studio that knows how to pick its battles. Shaking hands with Sega, Nintendo, Microsoft and even Konami, the Osaka based mercenaries have always distinguished themselves from the competition, even if they are not immune to missteps like the awful Anarchy Reigns or The Legend of Korra. As we wait to […]

Review: Destiny: The Taken King

by Nazih Fareson September 30, 2015
The MMO fused FPS made by Bungie has certainly attracted a lot of players through its lore and gameplay, but the title was sorely lacking in depth for many, except the few of us who started reading grimoire cards and tried to make sense of it. But after a while, and the release of the […]


Review: Call of Duty Advanced Warfare

by Nazih Fareson November 24, 2014
Call of Duty over the years, has been one of those abused licenses. Yearly releases, not much changes, but this year, Sledgehammer Team, Activision’s 3rd Call of Duty developer, understood that their license have lost interest to some point. In all respect to the saga, Advanced Warfare claims to offer innovative ways that pays homage its […]
