Far Cry 3 (PS3)

What is Far Cry? It is Ubisoft’s open world shooter series where you also explore a wilderness setting while having freeform firefights in the first person. First (2004) it was an unbearably pretty tropical paradise with thematically nonsensical, design-wise questionable content.

Sleeping Dogs (PS3)

I’m not a fan of the open world gameplay and worlds popularised by the GTA series. That’s what I tell myself, and here I am, enjoying the hell out of Sleeping Dogs, which is basically a by the numbers GTA

Dark Souls (PS3)

I had to have Dark Souls on the PlayStation 3 instead of Xbox 360 because of the free multiplayer. (I gave up on Xbox Live Gold due to over a year of not using it.) This is surprising considering that

What I’ve been playing this summer (part II)

Alan Wake (Xbox 360) Alan Wake finally came out and for me, it was well worth the wait. Top of the line storytelling all through, with unparalleled pacing and cinematic conventions. Great setting, great writing, great characters and good gameplay.
