Ryse: Son of Rome Already has a Reduced Price on Amazon

In what is a surprisingly early discount in its lifespan, Amazon has listed Ryse: Son of Rome, at $39.99, a $20 discount (33%) from the MSRP of $59.99. Whether this is a temporary price cut or a permanent one on Amazon’s behalf has yet to be deciphered, but given the lesser overall performance of the Xbox One in the marketplace (as compared to the PS4, at least), and the fact that Ryse is one of the most highly-traded in of [...]

Ryse: Son of Rome Review – When is a Game not a Game?

Ryse: Son of Rome is an Xbox One launch title where players take command of Marius Titus in an epic tale of revenge as you battle through and against those who threaten your family and the great city of Rome.

[Review] Crysis 3 – A Return to the Jungle? (Singleplayer)

Although the Crysis series’ claim to fame is arguably its flashy graphics and technical bells and whistles, the sci-fi shooter is much more than meets the eye.

Even though the three games have a lot in common, there are significant changes throughout each one, both in gameplay and setting. Hit [...]

[LTTP Review] Crysis – Welcome to Nano Kuni

Crysis is a PC gaming legend for reasons that have little to do with its actual content. Released in late 2007, it had recommended specs that quite frankly didn’t exist until at least a year or so later. While such a high ticket to entry no doubt affected sales at the time, it ended up being a hit and is no longer a real issue nowadays since running it is no problem on even a mid-range computer. CryTek has since [...]
