My take on #MaddenNFL16. It's the football equivalent of a field goal. Good not great 
This year's iteration keeps and polishes the previous improvements and gives fans just enough to make it feel fresh with ideas generated from trends in the sport and gaming.

I played #ProjectCARS. It's a good racing sim, especially if you're a hardcore gearhead. It's really good on PC.
Crowd-created racing sim 'Project CARS' is gorgeous, and easily one of the best pieces of eye candy in the genre.

Here's my #bloodborne review. It was brutally difficult. I died at least hundred times but I loved every minute of it.
'Bloodborne,' the latest in the 'Souls' series by From Software, continues the trend of challenging combat and forging camaraderie among players.

Here's my review of #CodeNameSTEAM. Gameplay is great and I do like the literary references but the story is just bleh.
With a style the recalls the critical favorite 'Valkyria Chronicles,' 'S.T.E.A.M.' takes players into a bizarre world where Abraham Lincoln leads a team fighting against space aliens.

My #DyingLight  review. The game lacks the odd charm that made #DeadIsland  so fun to play but it makes up for it with great parkour-style movements and gameplay.
Superior gameplay and other inventive features add up to another winner for game maker Techland.

So #BeyondEarth  is a good start for the sci-fi flavor of the Civilization series. There are parts of it that need to be more fleshed out -- like the Culture, Diplomacy and Stations. It's like Civ but not like Civ and that's a great thing.
But the latest installment in the acclaimed series doesn’t go quite far enough to create a new identity, and the gameplay suffers sometimes as a result.

I was never into #Hearthstone   or TCGs in general but I changed my mind when this game arrived on iPhone and Android. It does things so well. One of the best titles on the platform.
'Hearthstone' has become a passion, the one game that's managed to cement a spot at the top of my iPhone's home screen.

Here's my Battlefield Hardline review. I like the cops and robbers direction and the campaign written by Bissell and Auten (the folks behind Gears of War: Judgment) is pretty much the best SP experience the series has had since Bad Company 
The game switches from a military scenario to a crime setup, placing the action in a Miami that full of drugs, thieves and corrupt cops.

Here's my Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate review: The story and streamlined interface makes it the MH game I always wanted. #MH4U   
Franchise does everything right from beginning to end with new version that gives players incentive to tackle maddening difficulty.

Here's my top 10 games of the year. No game really stood out among the others and the differences among the top five are small. You could make a good #GOTY  argument for each of them. #goty2014  
'Dragon Age: Inquisition,' 'Sunset Overdrive' and 'Dark Souls 2' top list of the best games in a year in which some of the most anticipated releases were disappointments.

The Astro #A38  looks as good as it sounds, and as eSports popularity grows, form is gonna be as important as function 
http://blogs.mercurynews.com/aei/2014/09/26/astro-a38-review/
Astro Gaming, like the rest of the industry, has evolved with the times. Early on, it capitalized on the need for a set of cans aimed specifically for gamers. It found success with wired and wireless models and brought that… Continue Reading →

Good clean hamburgers. The flavors of every ingredient come through crystal clear. Decent fries. It's an above-average burger joint.
