Kinect Sports Rivals isn’t going to change your perception of Microsoft’s clever camera. If you’re one of those people who unplugs their Kinect, hates the fact it’s bundled in with the console and utterly detests motion controls and voice commands then step aside because you will despise this game…
Feed The Goat:
Get Your Goat
Goat Simulator is a tricky game to review. It’s the Sharknado of the current gaming world, a product that sets out to be awful and tries to have fun with it. The game is a joke, and that’s not just my critique…
Crawl Through These Dungeons:
You Reap What You Soul

More From The Tales Of Series:
Tell Me It Again
Reviewing a HD re-release of a decade old game can be quite tricky. For one, it’s tough to avoid judging the game by modern standards, especially when these days, a higher degree of polish is required to be deemed at the very least acceptable…
Standby For More Titanfall:
Titanfall has landed, plummeting down from the heavens in a crackle of thunder and smoke. But, even as the dust begins to settle, the shockwave left behind by Respawn Entertainment’s première shooter continues to play havoc with my life…
