Xbox One Review: Hard Reset Redux

6

Having been a huge FPS fan for so many years, Hard Reset was one of those games I always wanted to play, but I just couldn’t.

Xbox One Review: Fenix Furia

Fenix Furia Review

You could be forgiven for overlooking Fenix Furia. Originally released on PCs as Fenix Rage in 2014, the game slipped onto Xbox Live in early June with hardly a peep from Microsoft, and a slightly altered moniker.

Battleborn may ultimately …

Xbox One Review: Doom

doom xbox one review

I grew up in the ’90s when fast-paced shooters like Doom, Quake, and Unreal were king. I put countless hours into the many campaigns of the old Doom games (even the underrated Doom 64) and then had my first deathmatch experiences in Quake and Unreal Tournament. Those were fun times, but over the years I’ve grown to find those games …
