Saying Goodbye to the Xbox One

Saying Goodbye to the Xbox One

The Xbox and I go way back. Back when I still lived at home with my parents, my brother and I shared consoles. More often than not, the original Xbox was in my room because I had an obsession with Return to Castle Wolfenstein and it’s multiplayer. When I got my first full time job after college, the Xbox 360 was the first big purchase I made and most of my gaming took place on that console e...[Read More]

Experiencing the Wonders of an E3 Press Conference

Experiencing the Wonders of an E3 Press Conference

It all started with rumors of swag.   I’ve always wanted to attend E3, but have never been able to… until this year. I bought a badge as soon as they went on sale so this is my very first visit to E3. I’m what the kids call a ‘n00b’ for an event like this. You see, this year the Entertainment Software Association opened up 15,000 tickets for members of the public to purchase and visit the exp...[Read More]

Dadcade Fathers Day Gift Guide

Brace yourselves, Fathers Day is coming and with it an influx of ties, coffee mugs and if you’re lucky a voucher for a car wash. At least Mom can boil down that macaroni art and make some lunch out of it. So maybe you should just stare in the mirror and work on your “Oh Wow! This is a super cool tie” face or you can very subtly drop some hints by sharing, liking, or discussing th...[Read More]

Why Sony Doesn’t Need A New Console Next Year

Why Sony Doesn’t Need A New Console Next Year

You may have heard the rumors of Sony looking to release another new console in 2018. Just four years into the original console release and not even a full year into the release of the Pro. This move, one can assume, is a direct answer to Microsoft’s Project Scorpio. Another console that really doesn’t need to exist yet and since announce has been greeted with mixed reviews. But here i...[Read More]

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands Review

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands Review

Tom Clancy games have a tremendous pedigree reaching back over the past two decades. From Splinter Cell to Rainbow Six, the games have run the gamut on what a military style shooter should be with some games being critical successes and others never really making it to the upper echelons of gaming’s collective memory. Ghost Recon has always been my personal favorite with Advanced Warfighter ...[Read More]

Dead Rising 4 Review

Dead Rising 4 Review

Looking back at the Xbox 360 and it’s early days, there was one game that made me want it more than the PS3 – Dead Rising. Dead Rising was a game that put you in the zombie apocalypse and let you play however you wanted. There were psycho humans to deal with, zombies flooding the mall’s main areas, and seemingly everything could be used as a weapon or an outfit. It was a lighthea...[Read More]

Watch Dogs 2 Review

Watch Dogs 2 Review

The original Watch Dogs was a game that drew a lot of attention as the first highly anticipated next game. Gamers were blown away by the visuals, the gameplay, and overall hacking mechanics that were shown at multiple E3 press conferences. When the game finally launched, we found that the game wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t the hacking masterpiece a lot of people made it out to be. It had i...[Read More]

Skylanders Imaginators Review

Skylanders Imaginators Review

The Toys to Life genre has been a type of game that has delighted and impressed parents with young children for a while now. Three heavy hitters have existed including Disney Infinity, Lego Dimensions, and Skylanders. Out of the three, only two remain with Disney Infinity shutting down last year after they released their Star Wars pack. With only two remaining, Toys for Bob (creators of Skylanders...[Read More]

Overwatch: The One FPS to Rule Them All

Overwatch: The One FPS to Rule Them All

If you have any passing interest in the FPS (first person shooter) genre, chances are you have heard about Overwatch. If you haven’t, it’s basically Blizzard’s (World of Warcraft, Diablo, etc.) attempt to enter the FPS market and make a name for itself. To say it’s been anything less than an utter success would be selling it short. Overwatch has quickly become a fan favorit...[Read More]

Battleborn Review

Battleborn Review

As of writing this, tomorrow marks the release of one of the most highly anticipated game of the year, Overwatch. Now bringing up Overwatch to begin a review of Battleborn may seem odd, but they were announced around the same time, released in the same month, similar in concept and structure. There is no way you can talk about one and not the other. After spending two weeks with Battleborn, we loo...[Read More]

The Division Review

The Division Review

It seems like forever ago when The Division was first announced by Ubisoft at E3 2013. At the time, we were still playing on our last gen consoles and the next gen graphics and gameplay blew the crowd away. The game was initially supposed to be released in 2014, but delays plagued the game with it’s eventual release being early 2016. Were the delays polish to an already solid base of a game ...[Read More]

Far Cry Primal Review

Far Cry Primal Review

Ubisoft releases a ton of popular games, but the one that continues to impress with each installation is the Far Cry series. The original Far Cry was a little weird, yet good, but it wasn’t until 2 when I was really wowed by what they were creating. With each subsequent numbered released, they took what worked in the previous and made it better and got rid of what didn’t. By the time F...[Read More]
