Wow! Our very first iOS game app review! Very exciting, indeed.
And what other way to usher in a new platform in our scope than this little gem?
Total Dominance is a strategic board game app that is inspired by Six-Men Morris, a classic 1800s board game of wits involving six game pieces that each players control, which is a total of 12 pieces. The object is to line up 3 of your pieces while preventing the opponent from accomplishing the same goal. Once three pieces are lined up, they form a “mill.” When mills are formed, the respective player is allowed to remove one of the opponent’s pieces. The game is over when one player is left with only two pieces or is unable to perform any “legal” moves, meaning they are allowed to move their piece to a certain space. With that being said, there are multiple dynamics as to how to accomplish your goal of dominating your opponent. (Fun Trivia: This game was also one of the mini-games in Assassin’s Creed III!)

Often enough, we come across games developed by small, self funded companies, or indie games we’d like to call them. Most aren’t very much to look at, while some others create a massive following and eventually become the talk of the gaming sphere.
Prison Architect, though only in Alpha stages, has potential to be one of the games that people will know of just by hearing the word “prison.”
Developer/Publisher: Introversion Software
Number of Players: Single player

Despite its potential to be a great finished product, there is also a possibility that Prison Architect could crash and burn. Even in Alpha stages, there are still some bugs that could utterly break the game, mainly the CPU leaks that cause the game and your system to start slowing down at a crippling rate. This, along with some other bugs, can be discouraging. Read More…
It’s that time again. “What time is it?,” you may ask.
Well, it’s time for another installment of Saints Row (add as many exclamation marks as you’d like to portray your excitement)
Too soon? Or too late? Or perhaps the timing is just right? Well, I’ll be sure to tell you if this game is really worth your time and money, so don’t zip up your wallet just yet. Read More…
Hello everyone! SHWR/Kevin here and I’m going to showcase the Bow in Crysis 3! The bow is a stealth weapon that can be used while cloaked and is the only weapon that allows you to fire your weapon while remaining fully cloaked! It comes with three different tips that are: Anti-Armor, Anti-Personnel, and Anti-Air.
I hope you guys enjoy this gameplay of Crysis 3! I really enjoy it! (Despite playing it at HARDEST DIFFICULTY!!!)
Have a wonderful @$$ day!

You enter the world of The Walking Dead as Lee Everett, a mild mannered man (unless you decide otherwise) who’s in for a long road ahead of him. The game opens with Lee riding in the back of a police cruiser on a freeway heading out of Atlanta. From first impressions, it would seem that Lee is convicted and is on his way to a prison.
Suddenly, an unknown figure walks across the freeway and into the cruiser’s path, sending Lee and the Officer driving him into a near-fatal crash as the vehicle rolls off the road and into a forest.
After regaining consciousness and figuring out that everything has gone to Hell, Lee quickly makes a break for it and searches for help in the nearby neighborhood.
There, he meets a young girl named Clementine, not believing the fact that she had survived all on her own during the outbreak despite her age.
Together, they set off to find refuge and, if possible, Clementine’s parents.

The New World is still a monumental mystery to the European settlers and those who thought they had escaped on a pilgrimage from injustice had simply been given a longer leash instead.
During this era, the Templars were dominant in their scope and the Assassins were thought to be wiped out, leaving the reigns of destiny to the hands of those who seek to control it, rather than obey it.
However, the will of one man will spark a revolution that will ultimately change the New World and unite brothers in arms against the Templar order like in the times of old. That man’s name is Ratonhnhaké:ton, born of European and Native American blood; or Connor as he’s come to be known as. Read More…

Out on the streets, it’s a cold life to live, struggling for that extra penny and paying for high-priced gas…and you’re only trying to go five miles!
If that’s cold, then the streets of Hong Kong must be frozen solid. Sleeping Dogs takes you to a place you’ve probably never been before, and it’s a truly refreshing detour from your run-of-the-mill scaled New York City, or Miami, or the United States altogether. This free-roaming, action-adventure title will surely have you gripping your controller from the thrills and over-the-top action that always seems to deliver satisfaction. Read More…
Many games get overlooked because they aren’t plastered all over the advertisements you see on TV or over the webbernets. In order to do these games justice, we’ll handpick them for their high caliber in entertainment and satisfaction just so that they get the attention they rightfully deserve. We’ll call these inner looks into the shadowed world of gaming… “Under The Radar.” (Cos these games are so not getting on yours).
In our premier of “Under The Radar,” we’d like to personally hook you up with an inside look at “Ryu Ga Gotoku 4 (Like A Dragon 4)” or “Yakuza 4” for the U.S. Gamers’ Market. This would be the second addition to the Yakuza franchise that has placed its white-crocodile leather shoes onto the PS3 arena, tagging up with its partner and predecessor “Yakuza 3.” Read More…
