Miasmata Review

Miasmata is probably one of the scariest games you’ll play and not for the reasons you’d come to expect when associating such notion to a video game. Instead on relying on cheap scares and violence, this impressive indie game made by brothers Joe and Bob Johnson rings in the suspense through the notion that you are alone on an island, with only your wits and a constant (which shall remain unspoiled) threat looming at large. As Robert Hughes, a deathly ill man stranded on the island of Eden, with nothing more than a watch and a compass, it’s up to you to figure out a cure for the plague that you carry and of course, a means of escaping your lush, beautiful but deadly prison.

Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials Review

Dishonored was one of my favorite games of 2012 and it’s great to see its gametime getting an extension through downloadable content.

Rage: The Scorchers DLC Review

Rage was probably one of the most hyped games of 2011. Id Software built it up as the next great thing, and while it certainly looked incredible, it lacked in a lot of departments, most notably its sparse world, forgettable cast of characters, lackluster story and ridiculously disappointing ending segment. The Scorchers DLC somewhat remedies that last part, letting you play past the end of the main campaign and giving you a fun new weapon to mess around with in a new two hour long set of missions. The Scorchers has the ark vault survivor going up against the aptly named Scorchers gang soon after meeting a mercenary named Sarah. Apparently, the firebug merry group of individuals have devised a plan to take over the Wasteland by using a secret mobile weapon, built deep beneath the tunnels of the town of Wellspring. This DLC is...
