Call of Duty: World War II – Streamlined Multiplayer, Epic Zombie Mode Highlight Best COD In Years

by James Harveyon November 13, 2017
After flinging the franchise into the future with Infinite Warfare, Activision takes Call of Duty back to familiar territory with Call of Duty: World War II. Foregoing future tech and alien landscapes, players are now flung back into the hellish landscape of World War II, and the results are fantastic. While the short single-player campaign is […]

Review: “Deadpool” Blu-ray – A Fun, Vulgar Take on the Superhero Origin Formula

by James Harveyon May 13, 2016
From the very first frame, Deadpool positions itself as something different: a brash, loud and crude action-comedy superhero movie that offers something different. But, really, it’s the same superhero origin movie we’ve been seeing for years now, though it skillfully uses a distorted narrative, crude humor, and solid set pieces to cover up those well-known […]

Alien: Isolation Versus The Evil Within (PS4) – Halloween Showdown

by James Harveyon October 31, 2014
So, it’s Halloween and you’re looking for a creepy game to play and, as luck would have it, the market has obliged us. Alien: Isolation and The Evil Within, from Sega and Bethesda respectively, both hit shelves within the last few weeks and deliver on the holiday-appropriate scares in decidedly different ways. One will have […]

Skylanders Trap Team Review – Fun and Engaging

by James Harveyon October 28, 2014
Skylanders Trap Team is the latest installment of Activision’s epic toy-meets-game series, promising to push the franchise to the next level with new characters, powers, and all that we hear whenever a new game in a long-running series hits. As with previous iterations, expect to plunk down quite a few bucks in order to get the […]

Review – Destiny Succeeds, But Doesn’t Reach It’s Full Potential (PS4)

by James Harveyon October 17, 2014
Sitting down to play Destiny, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. The hype has completely died down, as has the initial blowback. Reviews were, overall, pretty mediocre. There was a fair amount of disappointment to go around that, still, didn’t really stop anyone from playing the game. People are still plugging hour after hour […]

Video Game Review: “The Last Of Us” Comes In First Place

by James Harveyon July 5, 2013
I’m not someone who replays games over and over, but moments after I finished my first spin with The Last of Us, I wanted another round. There’s no experiencing it all for the first time again, but I wanted to revisit the entire game from a different perspective and have a chance to explore the […]

Video Game Review: “Injustice: Gods Among Us” Is A Strong Contender

by James Harveyon April 25, 2013
Injustice: Gods Among Us wasn’t looking too sharp for me based on the early trailers and character designs. The costumes for our favorite DC Comics characters looked overly complicated and excessive (and, to be honest, most still are) and the story seemed like an excessive, almost comically over-the-top take on the “grimdark” era of comics […]

Video Game Review: “The Amazing Spider-Man?” More like “The Acceptable Spider-Man”

by James Harveyon February 11, 2013
Out of the gate, The Amazing Spider-Man has a lot going for it. Not only does it bring back the open-world free swing that Spidey game fans haven’t seen since in a few years, but we also get a new story that, in all seriousness, isn’t half bad. The story would make for a solid […]

The Five Worst Episodes of “Justice League”

by James Harveyon November 16, 2011
Justice League was an incredible animated series and, ten years after its debut, it is still considered the benchmark for super-hero animation. Stories were riveting, characters unforgettable, and clashes epic. This series still has fans talking to this day; debating and picking apart every episode, character and revelation. Justice League (and Justice League Unlimited) was […]

by James Harveyon November 9, 2011
A ‘villain’ is defined as a wicked or evil person, a dramatic or fictional character who is typically at odds with the hero and the cause of particular trouble. This is something we see every week in our favourite comics and television shows, year after year, as far back as many of us can remember. […]
