  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Single Player Campaign Impressions

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Single Player Campaign Impressions

    So, I just finished Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Instead of reviewing the game as a whole, as I don’t have any desire or the requisite time to put into testing the multiplayer side of the game enough to offer a fair and thorough critique, […]

    The Golf Club Steam Early Access Impressions

    A Tiger Woods-sized void has opened up in the video game golf market with EA Sports deciding to part ways with the declining superstar athlete late last year. EA will continue to make licensed PGA Tour games, but without Tiger’s name and playable presence it’s […]
