Payday 2 (PlayStation 3) Review

payday2

Payday 2  (in comparison) is full of thugs, identity-less avatars who have no purpose, no reason to commit these acts outside of uncomfortable greed. To draw juxtaposition, Grand Theft Auto is so brazen, colorful, and off-centered as to occupy satire, whether characters are resolved or not. Other shooters work in military angles, or science fiction to soften carnage. Payday 2′s players must react as gruesome thrill seekers, taking part in an unreality made real, where suddenly the ones taking pride in defending the general public are savages. Everything feels dirty, and it exists under an assumption that if one game has players kill, open door murder policies are in effect without repercussion.”

NCAA Football 14 (PlayStation 3) Review

ncaa14

“Infinity Engine’s sequel debuts in NCAA Football 14, the franchise abandoning its hand-me-down attire from Madden’s often glossier technology regime. Bundled up with sharper collision and fewer ungainly wrapped up legs primed for YouTube exploitation, NCAA proves a capably smoother on-field experience. Tackled players in the midst of a leap are punished with body spinning, physics-based toppling, selling the must-win attitude of college football.”

The Last of Us (PS3) Review

lastofus

“You remember the people and visions they leave behind, not violence. For inherent shock value which graced E3 keynote stages, The Last of Us will thrive on humanistic embellishments. You remember splattering faces onto brick walls because it becomes ingrained, not because it’s incomparable. Anything performed with such gross duplication is bound to stick. Lasting impressions will be of Ellie, staring wide-eyed at a life she will never lead or Joel coming to realize there is more than survival to care for. That is the core of The Last of Us , so it is a shame Naughty Dog rarely takes the time to celebrate being human.”
