Review: Dragon Age 2

“Dragon Age Origins” provided an experience that originated on PC, so the complaint of the combat feeling shoehorned onto the console versions is understandable. I didn’t see anything wrong with the pause feature that interrupted the flow of play, and I couldn’t think of anything to add or fix to the combat or radial menu, that would result in making it “better”. I thought it was implemented just fine and rewarded those who took the time to understand the proper positioning of characters, and the most effective combination of Tactics. A lot of reviewers will say the combat has much improved in this sequel, when it actually hasn’t changed at all; they have just mistaken the improvements for the lack any challenge. Two years is a long time, and the shorter but common development time spent on this sequel is not a sufficient excuse for why it is an excruciatingly dull, story driven game.  

Review: Borderlands New Revolution

Gearbox Software is one of the few development teams who understand how to create a single player DLC, without forcing you to spend more than $10. Claptrap’s New Revolution DLC is the fourth and final piece of content to be released, and it comes to us almost a year after Borderlands originally launched. After a short run through New Revolution, you will be begin to question if this fourth DLC should even exist.

Review: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom

During the “Perils of summer” Steam Sale, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom was listed for $2.49, which was a low enough price for me to purchase it. Aside from the few screenshots that I saw, the only thing I knew was that it was a puzzle platformer where you could manipulate time.

Review: The Secret Armory of General Knoxx

The idea of downloadable content is still being experimented with because more often than not, consumers don’t feel like they’re receiving enough content for their money. The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is the third DLC for Borderlands, and I think Gearbox Software understands what the consumer wants -- a healthy amount of game content for around $10.
