Burnout Paradise RemasterdThe Arcade Racer of Your Childhood

 

Relive your childhood mayhem with the return of a beloved franchise that has long been dormant.  Burnout was a cult classic staple in the realm of arcade racers in the 6th and early 7th generation of consoles. Until, Forza Horizon took the main stage it was my most played racing series to date. Burnout catered to the casual audience with smooth controls, spectacular visual, and destructive mayhem. With each entry it continued to push the bar further and revolutionized the arcade racing genre. Without Burnout I can’t really imagine what the genre what look like today but with Burnout Paradise Remastered you don’t have to! The king of arcade racing returns on modern consoles today!

It's Mario Day!

pixel.jpgIt’s March 10, and that means it’s Mario Day, a day to celebrate one of the greatest and most enduring video game series we have. Why March 10? The abbreviation is Mar. 10, or, shortened, Mar10, which looks just like Mario. Maybe that’s a bit of a silly excuse for the day, but Mario truly deserves it. Without him, we may not have video games as we know them today.

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist ‎02-13-2018 12:18 PM - edited ‎02-13-2018 12:28 PM (6,507 Views)

Assassin's Creed Origins

 

The cult classic franchise based on the ancestry of past assassins returns today after a long-awaited year hiatus. With a brand-new dynamic character and immersive setting Ubisoft aims to return the juggernaut franchise to the top of gaming pyramid (excuse the pun). To no one’s surprise Assassins Creed Origins was the most talked about game on Social Media during E3 2017 and with good reason. During Microsoft’s E3 presentation the gaming world was formally introduced to another iteration in the Assassins Creed family. Showcasing an abundance of new features and beautiful locals, Ubisoft came out swinging showing the beefy amount of content that was added due to a longer development cycle.

Star Wars Battlefront II

 

For many, the original Star Wars Battlefront series was full of classic fun filled nostalgia. Pandemics series was a childhood classic that let many relive countless Star Wars battles throughout the established era’s. So, when EA announced the revitalization of the series, many (including myself) were overcome with excitement and pure joy. Buzz and commotion sparked throughout the gaming industry about the return of the classic franchise championed by the legendary studio DICE. However, when EA’s Star Wars Battlefront released and the shiny new paint started to fade away, a large part of the community became very dissatisfied due to the lack of content. I am thrilled to say that EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II fixes that problem immensely and the beta only solidified my pre – order for this upcoming masterpiece.

Injustice 2It was in the fall of 2013 when Superman, with the help of the creative team at NetherRealm Studios, took control of all world governments and established his Regime. Some heroes, and even a few villains who like a one-world dictator, sided with him to help police the world. As a gamer and a comic book fan, it was exciting to see some of my favorite DC characters at their best and worst.

Grand Theft Auto VThe world was forever changed on 9/17/2013 when Grand Theft Auto V was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.  The main campaign is only as unbelievable as the masterful Grand Theft Auto Online experience that has continued to host events to this day. 

 

I’ve played the entire campaign and jumped into the online experience the day it was released to the public.  In my 20+ years of gaming few games have captivated an audience with its sheer size and incredible detail like the Grand Theft Auto series.

Andromeda Teaser

 

Mass Effect is a franchise I’ve been a fan of ever since playing the first installment on Xbox 360 when it premiered in 2007. I can’t fathom how many hours I’ve spent over the years with my Vanguard Shepard charging and shot-gunning enemies, getting to know complex characters, and multiple replays to see how the stories change. With Andromeda fast approaching on PC, Xbox One, and premiering as the first Mass Effect title on the PS4, I can’t wait for more people than ever to have a chance to discover this fantastic franchise that I love.

Battlefield 1With a trailer that has yielded more ‘likes’ on YouTube than any other trailer before it, the excitement around Battlefield 1 couldn’t be more apparent. When watching the trailer for the first time, I immediately recognized the weaponry from World War I and admittedly, I was quick to find out that automated weapons were utilized well before I originally thought; a common misconception, actually. It’s obvious that Battlefield 1 will be not only a fantastic gaming experience, but a deeply rooted history lesson.
