Game Review: Dead Island

Zombies are everywhere lately, particularly in the gaming industry. Left 4 Dead, Dead Rising, Resident Evil 5, Dead Space, and even Call of Duty are all involving themselves in the lucrative business of zombie-killing.

Game Review: Portal 2

People come to expect a lot from sequels, and very rarely does the developer follow through as perfectly as Valve did with Portal 2. The original Portal took a very simple premise and put it into mind-bending practice: use a portal gun to navigate your way around a series of […]
