Review: Just Cause 4

by Nazih Fareson December 12, 2018
Another day, another explosion, right? Just Cause 4 is back with yet another coup d’etat simulator, and this time we’re going to South America. The setting this time around is Solis, a massive country with a tyrannical regime that only understands one thing: explosions. If this sounds familiar, it’s probably because Just Cause has kind […]

Two years ago, Sony dropped the hammer by revealing a new Superhero project, led by an iconic studio known for its adventure game franchise like the Spyro series and more: Insomniac Games.

Review: Yakuza Kiwami 2

by Mazen Abdallahon August 14, 2018
Ah, Yakuza. I find it surprising that there are so many Yakuza games out and the lore has gotten super elaborate, and yet there are still tons of people who haven’t played a Yakuza title. One of the most underrated series in gaming, the Yakuza franchise began in 2005 with the now-classic PS2 title Yakuza […]

Review: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

by Mazen Abdallahon March 9, 2017
In our last VGP Radio podcast, we discussed modern shooters and their appeal. During the episode (which you check out right here), we talked a lot about tactical shooters, and how they have a more niche appeal generally, since gamers want something simpler.

Review: Yakuza 0

by Mazen Abdallahon January 31, 2017
Out of all the world’s criminal organizations, the Yakuza is definitely one of the most fascinating. It’s very organized, and while it’s frowned upon by Japan’s strongly conservative society, some of the larger organizations have been known to provide charity and even relief in times of disaster. Yakuza stand out partially because of their adherence […]

Admittedly considered as a revival of a cult license after 6 years of silence, this was not an easy task for 2K’s newest studio, Hangar 13, led by Haden Blackman (worked on games […]
