This is a disclaimer; Resident Evil 2 is one of my most favorite games of all time. It obviously is my favorite Resident Evil game in the entire series, so my bias may be REAL strong in this review. However, as with other remasters and remakes, they have been known to polarize a dedicated fan-base that does not want ANYTHING in their beloved series to change. I’m open to change and improvement, and when I found out one of my favorite games of all time was being remade from the ground up, I jumped for joy, but sat in bated breath, hoping that it wouldn’t demolish what made the original so good in the first place.

Developer: Beat Games (Formerly Hyperbolic Magnetism)
Platform(s): PSVR (also available on PC)
As an owner of the PSVR since it’s release two and a half years ago now, there are a few games in my library that I like to introduce new players to; games that are fun, easy to pick up and not vomit-inducing (Astro Bots, Superhot VR, etc.). I can take most, if not all VR games for longer periods of time and not get dizzy or want to throw up, but I know that there are others that cannot. Safely, I can say that now Beat Saber has been added to the list of games that are a MUST play for any PSVR owner, and a great game for even beginner players to pick up and have a fun time with. This game DOES require quite a bit of movement and exercise, so make sure you’re sufficiently warmed up.

Nintendo has always been good at taking some of their original ideas and make them feel fresh and new again. Captain Toad is no exception to this. Other than Super Mario Bros. 2 (Super Mario USA), Toad was always a side character that was commonly used as an NPC in the Mushroom Kingdom and a comic relief character. Now Nintendo has given him a chance to shine in his own IP, and shine he does. Continue reading Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (Switch)

The Elite Controller for Elite Gamers
By Stojan Jovic
If you ever would ask me years ago if I would ever spend $150 on a video game controller, I’d say you were “out of your mind.” Well, look who’s laughing now?
The hefty price tag is a detriment to many gamers out there. First party controllers are not cheap to begin with, and third party controllers are, if not wired, lacking in quality. And for those that are serious about their gaming experience, there are controllers like these. Continue reading Xbox Elite Controller Review
The Crew 2 (Quick Review)
PS4, Xbox One, PC
By Stojan Jovic
Watch the trailer and you’ll know exactly what you’re in for; high stakes racing, wild stunts, and holy-shit moments. Sprinkle in some cringe-worthy dialogue by “tough boy racers” and AI rubber banding and you got yourself The Crew 2.
I could end the review there, because that’s what the game really is in a nutshell, but there’s so much more to the game than the flashy cars, wild moments, and the cross country racing. Yes, it takes place in a WAY scaled down version of the United States of America (apparently in this version you can drive from Florida to New York in 10 minutes), but that’s the big appeal to this game; the open racing world. Forza Horizon popularized the open world racer, and The Crew 2 added a big can of Red Bull to the formula. Continue reading The Crew 2 Quick Review
