Starting as a Nintendo Gamecube exclusive, followed by a heyday of various consoles re-releases, HD remaster and I don’t know how many other names of versions I can count of Resident Evil 4, what I consider the most revolutionary entry in the series is finally remastered for the current generation of consoles. Is the adaptation and port worth another […]

Review: Trivial Pursuit Live!

by Nazih Fareson February 25, 2015
After Risk and Monopoly Family Fun Pack (which I reviewed previously), Ubisoft topped all of them with one of my favorite board game: Trivial Pursuit Live! Is it becoming more natural to find traditional board games on game consoles? At the same time, is it less natural to play board games on a console when we have the actual […]

Review: Resident Evil Remastered

by Nazih Fareson January 24, 2015
Resident Evil has been throughout the years the reference of Survival Horror. The release of the “Rebirth” version on Gamecube in 2002 was successful in remaking this masterpiece (a Metacritic average score of 91/100), will this HD port to new generation consoles have the same impact?

With the new generations of consoles, Rebellion is back, pursuing perfection in their hit series, known for intense infiltration and sniper skills: Sniper Elite III.

by Nazih Fareson June 26, 2014
Valiant Hearts: The Great War is the second non-Rayman project to use Ubisoft quirky UbiArt Framework, after the beautiful but soporific Child of Light. A few weeks after the 70th anniversary of the D-Day (Normandy Landing), this Ubisoft Montpellier title is set back on a conflict that is rarely adapted in videogames nowadays: the First World War. The Great War as […]

Last night was all about the big battle: Sony and Microsoft competed at E3 in Los Angeles. While presenting a new PlayStation, the other tried to defend the Xbox One. A decisive battle for the two giants. So who won the hearts of the gamers? For myself, the answer is very clear: there has been […]

E3 2013: What does it mean for the big three?

by Nazih Fareson June 10, 2013
Gamers are really demanding! This is not really something we just learned. But it’s getting worse with time, as gamers become more critical, more experienced, and harder to please. While it is difficult to imagine a more exciting renewal of the current generation, as we turn to E3 2013 for the moment, we all remain […]

The Console War: Just Stop It Already

by Nazih Fareson May 29, 2013
PlayStation 4 is better… Xbox One is stronger… The Wii U has better games… I’m tired of reading these comments flooding the internet. Same trend, same opinion. The concept of the console wars is pointless, with all due respect to all journalists that use that term, there is no war to begin with. What’s even […]
