I must admit that I was a huge NFL 2K series fan. I loved the first person mode, I thought the game controlled better; I just preferred it. So naturally when I caught wind of EA Sports buying exclusive rights to the NFL license, I was furious. However, several years into their deal, EA has released a Madden that has made me re-think my loyalty. Continue reading

I reviewed The Movies awhile back and touched upon the monotonous micro-managing deeply. What I didn’t touch as much on was the actual movie making process.

Baseball management sims go way, way back. You could say that they have their roots somewhat in Earl Weaver Baseball (although that was arguably more of an ‘action’ game), but regardless there have been countless titles vying to get this genre right.

It’s spring. The boys of summer have taken the field. Now that 2k Sports has the MLB license, we’re reliant on them to bring the sport to our TVs. Do they succeed? Like an ugly 1-0 scraper, sort of. Continue reading

The games in Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls series are huge. Ask anyone who’s played Arena, Daggerfall, or Morrowind and they’ll vouch for that, and Oblivion is no different. In fact, it’s so large that a traditional review would be irrelevant. So, in that light, I’m going to do a series of reviews, covering the game from different angles and time frames. This review, the first in the series, covers the game shortly after you start. Let us begin, shall we? Continue reading

Civilization has been going strong for over a decade and a half now and has driven people to play ‘just one more turn’ since 1990. Now we have the fourth iteration in the series, and it’s one of the best entries into the Civ line. Continue reading
