(Greatest Of All Time), and the first major release since the excellent Tetris: Axis in 2011, also a 3DS game.

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Single Player Campaign Impressions

    … on my terms, at my pace. Call of Duty is Call of Duty. It doesn’t matter how many coats of future paint are slathered on it. It doesn’t matter which of Activision’s revolving door of developers is at the helm. It doesn’t matter if Kevin Spacey is cast as the headline Hollywood star voice actor. Call of Duty is what it is at this point–take…

  • Review: Z-Run

    …. Z-Run offers more than that, and yet it does pretty much everything it can to make you not want to keep playing. Go play Beatshapers’ other new zombie game, #killallzombies, instead. Pros: + Some interesting mechanics + A zombie runner is a good idea (I wish I could say it’s the thought that counts.) Cons: - Lacks the addictive reward loop…
