Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is Capcom’s second attempt at trying to move forward with the Resident Evil series while still retaining the classic horror element it is known for and it works.
Is the next entry in the Mortal Kombat series worth getting? In short: yes
In the 15 hours it took for me to complete The Evil Within I was told I had died a total of 60 times which was twice as much as I expected. I wasn’t even playing on the hardest difficulty, I was playing on normal but man did this game get difficult at times and I loved every second of it.
Although we've come a long way from the days of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion's infamous horse armor, single-player downloadable content is a tricky business. At best we get something that meaningfully adds to a game's existing narrative and mechanics as well as providing a few new wrinkles of its own, like Mass Effect 2's "Lair of the Shadow Broker" or The Last of Us' "Left Behind." At worst we get something that haphazardly recycles content and adds nothing to the game's existing design, such as Dead Space 3's "Awakened."
BioShock Infinite: Burial At Sea Episode One fell somewhere between those two extremes. Irrational's first DLC expansion set players loose in a re-imagined Rapture, rendered in a loving and absorbing detail simply not possible in the original BioShock. Its gameplay sat uncomfortably between Infinite's raucous, punchy gunplay and BioShock's broad experimentation of playstyles, offering the perks of neither approach. Its narrative, meanwhile, barely ticked Irrational's lore forward. It was harmless then, but inessential and it squandered much of its potential.
Legend of Korra: The Game would normally be disregarded as licensed shovelware that would never amount to anything, but due to the involvement of Platinum Games and the quality of the TV show the game has gotten the attention of many gamers around the world. The show depicts a rich universe full of interesting characters and unique abilities. Unfortunately, Legend of Korra: The Game never completely captures the spirit of the show it is based on. Fortunately, it does capture the feeling of bending the elements to your will in a fun and fast paced combat system. Ultimately, despite several shortcomings, the game still manages to be enjoyable for the 5-10 hours you’ll spend playing it.
