GTA V is the game that just keeps on giving.
Grand Theft Auto V initially came out way back in 2013 with its online component following just two weeks later. But what sets GTA apart from other games series is the DLC’s (Down Loadable Content) are free and really fucking good.
Call it old and outdated all you want, but Halo: Combat Evolved changed the First Person Shooter genre forever.
Back in 2001 it seemed the console wars were over and it looked like PlayStation had won with the PS2, which had come out just the year before, since Sega had discontinued manufacturing the Dreamcast after just under 2 years and fell off the radar and while Nintendo would eventually bring out the GameCube (which I think suited younger gamers rather than a more mature audience) they felt like they were more interested in the hand-held side of things. But all that changed when Microsoft decided they wanted in on the action and brought the Xbox system to the table. Upon its release, the Xbox had a small handful of games ready to go, but one of them would change the gaming world - Halo: Combat Evolved.
"Let my review of the game serve as a lesson to all that nothing is ever a 'sure thing,' and you should never get too excited about something because someone will always find a way to corrupt the things you love."
I’ve spoken about terrible movie adaptations of games on here so far, but few things in this world can be quite as terrible as a video game tie-in for a movie. Make no mistake, that’s exactly what Mad Max (the game) is, no matter what some people may say to try and convince you otherwise. It doesn’t just borrow from the established canon of Fury Road, but can be considered a direct prequel to the events of that movie. Aside from the inclusion of the War Boyz, it also has Scabrous Scrotus as the main protagonist, Scabrous being one of the three sons of Immortan Joe. It pulled from some of the greatest source material any game could ask for, and still managed to screw it up spectacularly.
Rise of Iron is Destiny’s 4th and final expansion before next year’s sequel, so is it worth it?
Word of warning, if you don’t play Destiny you’re going to struggle following this.
Released almost exactly on the 2nd anniversary of Destiny, Rise of Iron deals with the fabled Iron Lords that keep being mentioned but never seen. Turns out they were some of the first Guardian’s after The Collapse and set up something like an Arthurian style group to protect the remnants of humanity. About 400 years before the game’s setting, the Iron Lords rediscovered SIVA, a virus-like nanotechnology that can build ships and cities within days, the Lords figure they can use SIVA to kick start the second coming of humanity.
Brand new Ronon's Reviewer Frank has decided to start with a bang by covering the 93's horrendous Super Mario Bros.
The Super Mario Bros. movie was described as a nightmare by many of the cast and crew members; Bob Hoskins himself was the victim of many on-set accidents and injuries, a couple that nearly killed him. Its critical reception was nothing short of appalling and was almost universally panned. In his 2007 autobiography, John Leguizamo said that to get through the shooting of this movie, both he and Hoskins were drinking between takes. For me, personally, it was one of the strangest and most confusing films I would ever watch as a child and is probably the first time I ever tasted true disappointment in something video game related.
