Introduction to SOMA Video Game
SOMA by Frictional Games can be described as a combination adventure puzzle search and find role playing video game. In my opinion SOMA is a video game that has to grow on you. In other words, when you start playing SOMA, you may think there is nothing unique or different about it. These were my initial thoughts; however, I decided to give SOMA the benefit of the doubt. As I got further into the video game... Read more
Pathologic Classic HD is a remastered version of the cult classic first person survival game where you search an open world to find clues, items, and of course a lot of stopping random people and children to talk and barter items. Not a lot of action in this game, and after awhile it can get a bit dull doing the same things over and over. You live out the story of 3 people in this game and it may leave... Read more
Among other such ballyhooed features as a time-saving sleep/resume function and the ability to purchase a rising mountain of slightly remastered versions of games you already purchased between two and 10 years ago, the Playstation 4 also makes it dead simple for anyone to engage in the formerly cost- and technically-prohibitive act of streaming a live performance of their gameplay to all who wish to watch it.
Now let's amend that statement for Bossa Studios' "I Am Bread." Among other such... Read more
With games like Euro Truck Simulator and Goat Simulator out there, it’s easy to be dismissive of the growing simulation space. Simulator games are making quite the comeback but, as with anything else, you have great content and then there’s the stuff that’s… Questionable. Farming Simulator 15, I would say, is of the foremost camp. The game may not be on most gamers' radars but, if you give it a real shot, you may very well fall in love. So... Read more
When we last left Rhys, Fiona, and their vault-hunting entourage in Tales From The Borderlands: Zer0 Sum, our heroes were dusting themselves off from a death rally and powering up long-lost Atlas technology. In this second episode, Atlas Mugged, developer Telltale Games picks up immediately where it left off in a chapter that bumps the series to new heights but ultimately falls shy of its potential.
As before, Atlas Mugged's story is framed as a flashback told by Fiona and Rhys... Read more
Overview: The MayFlash Universal Arcade Stick, simply put, aims to be an alternative to some of the other better known (& pricier) arcade sticks currently out there on the market. Frankly, at first glance at the arcade stick's price point, I had low expectations for the product, assuming that it would be of cheap construction and overall poor quality compared to the alternatives out there that are at a much higher price point, with the saying "you get what you...

As the AllGames.com resident wrestling fanatic, which includes video games, and seeing as it's WrestleMania season, I've been tasked with reviewing the new indie game that dropped on the PlayStation Network exclusively for PS3, 5 Star Wrestling. First, to understand the title of the game, you need to know that a 5 Star match in wrestling is the highest ranking you can receive in wrestling. Though, this ranking system was started by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer newsletter, it... Read more
Developer / Publisher: Telltale Games
Tales from Borderlands is rich with wonder and mystery, but the most nagging question you'll be asking throughout this point-and-click version of Pandora is, what's the point?
There's the obvious answer, of course: this is a Telltale game; and after knocking it out of the park with The Walking Dead (and to a lesser extent The Wolf Among Us and Game of Thrones), the studio has earned a reputation for spinning pop culture franchises into point-and-click gold... Read more
It’s a common theme, the world is in danger of being overrun by mindless zombies. The outbreak is held at bay by a quarantine trapping both “biters” and survivors alike. The survivors band together into two groups, Runners and Bandits. And so it goes, the conflict between the living and dead as well as between the living and the living.
You play as Crane, an agent of the Global Relief Effort (GRE) dropped into to the writhing hell hole that is... Read more
The fun thing about indie developers is that you never know when they are going to come up with something unique. Take for example Rollers of the Realm, by developer Phantom Compass; it combines video game pinball with a role-playing game (RPG).
Since a majority of your gameplay will be playing pinball the story is kept light, but engaging. You start as the Rogue. She has come to town with her dog looking for some easy targets. Eventually her dog gets... Read more
