As stated in my First Opinion on Drox Operative: Invasion of the Ancients, space games are my thing. However, I am also picky about my space games. If it’s no more than a space skin over a generic latticework of mediocre gameplay, I’m going to pan it. I want something more than that. The question is, does Drox Operative offer that or is it more of a space cadet?
Sometimes games slip through the cracks here at All Around Gaming Hub. It’s inevitable that we can’t review everything but once in a while a big game that we intend to cover doesn’t get its due in time. In the past we’ve moved on, letting the work on the review languish in favor of more up-to-date coverage. Today, we’re introducing our Quick Scores, micro reviews of games that we missed a reasonable window on. Our first two Quick Scores are Bioshock Infinite and Pikmin 3.
I’ve been a follower of the NBA 2K series since the original on the Sega Dreamcast, and my favorite NBA sim ever was NBA 2K13. Naturally I was very excited for NBA 2K14 but that can be hazardous, producing unsafe expectations. Does NBA 2K14 succeed as a follow up to 2K13 or is it a mere hold-me-over until the next-gen versions launch in November?
Our Saints Row 4 review is late. Really, really late. There are reasons but more importantly, it’s finally here. Should you take a stab at being a super powered President, or is it better to just let the aliens take over?
If you’re an older gamer, one who grew up on 16-bit platformers and significant difficulty levels, Rogue Legacy will be a pleasant hit of nostalgia… just before it gleefully kills you. With fire. I don’t know about you but for me it was worth it.

Burnout Paradise is an open world racing game developed by Criterion Games and I’m giving it a go. When you start the game up you get an intro of Paradise city explaining the many locations you can go. After the intro, you are given a Paradise City license and a beat up car in which you have to repair.
I first commented on Marvel Heroes when I complained about its screwy DLC pricing system a few months ago. Now, I’m finally going to review the game. To be honest, I think I liked it better as a curiosity to mock for its money-making schemes rather than a game I actually had to play.
I’ve been neglected to review Reus for a while now. It’s not that I don’t like the game, because I do. It’s just an easy title to forget about. It’s great for quick bursts of fun but it doesn’t stick with you very long. I’ve heard of gaming experiences being compared to ‘fast food’ before for their quick but ultimately unfulfilling experiences. Reus absolutely fits into that mold.
