  • Review: FIFA 13 (4.7/ 10) Posted by: Matt Rock Posted on: December 13, 2013
    Okay, I know what you’re thinking: “Why are you guys reviewing FIFA 13 instead of FIFA 14?  FIFA 13 is outdated now!”  That’s true, it is.  But Albert Einstein famously defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”  And that pretty much sums up not only why we […]
  • Review: Grand Theft Auto V (PS3/ 360) (Perfect 10) Posted by: Matt Rock Posted on: October 31, 2013
    It’s official.  After GTA V has taken home a staggering seven world records, it has now earned something so prestigious that even the acclaimed team at Rockstar will find themselves blushing:  Grand Theft Auto V is officially the first game ever to take home a perfect 10 out of 10 score from Obscure Republic. Reading […]
  • Review: Battlefield 4 (PC) (7.6/ 10) Posted by: Matt Rock Posted on: October 30, 2013
    Ever since Battlefield 1942 entered the fray of shooter games way back in 2002, I’ve firmly believed that the Battlefield franchise is one of the very best in the gaming world, and that, pound-for-pound and for its era, BF42 is the very best FPS title ever made.  The franchise has changed the industry by leaps […]
  • Review: Civilization V (with expansions) (6.3/10) Posted by: Matt Rock Posted on: October 28, 2013
    Every so often, I like to review older games, partly for fun, but also because I’ve spent so much time with these titles that it almost feels criminal to have never written a review in the past.  Today, we’ll be looking at a game I’ve spent ungodly amounts of time playing: Civilization V, complete with […]
  • Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Review Posted by: Bryn Price Posted on: October 11, 2013
    It’s that time of year, yet another Final Fantasy is released. So much for ‘final’, eh? Well this reviewer can hardly complain, I’m a Final Fantasy slut, I would say ‘whore’, but somebody once told me whores get paid to be what they are. However, you could say the series has not been what it […]
  • Final Fantasy XI Review 2013 Posted by: Bryn Price Posted on: February 23, 2013
    The first question that probably comes to mind is, “why the hell would you review a decade old game? What are you, some kind of nostalgia reviewer?” The answer to that question takes me back to the year 1823, I was a fighter pilot in Vietnam and the Nazis had managed to finally ward off […]
  • Five character classes that are almost impossible to level up Posted by: Noel Proulx Posted on: January 30, 2013
    I have played many games over the years and one of my favorite things is finding a way to expedite level grinding. I love assigning stat points and watching my character grow in power. Every now and then though you come across a character that is just darned hard to get anywhere with. Following are a […]
  • Game Review: Battlefield 3 (PC) (9.2/ 10) Posted by: Matt Rock Posted on: January 28, 2013
    You might have looked at the title of this article, and thought to yourself “why would they review a game that’s been out for a year already?”  The answer is pretty simple:  a year later, I’m still playing Battlefield 3, and I consider it to be one of the greatest FPS titles I’ve ever had […]
  • Game Review: The War Z (5.6/ 10) Posted by: Matt Rock Posted on: January 27, 2013
    If you pay any attention to game industry media, chances are you’ve heard of The War Z already, and your impression of the game is probably pretty terrible.  As the most controversial game release of 2012, The War Z picked up a pretty nasty reputation right out of the gate, and yes, we’re going to […]
  • Game Review: Anno 2070 (5.8/ 10) Posted by: Matt Rock Posted on: January 27, 2013
    I’m usually a big fan of games that break through the boundaries of convention and attempt to deliver something new.  To this end, Anno 2070 looked to be quite the promising title, with its fresh, sci-fi vibe and setting, and what appeared to be some unique gameplay dynamics, from the outside looking in, anyway.  The […]
