Review: Uncharted 4 – A Thief’s End

This is a review I honestly never thought I’d write, and certainly one that I hoped I’d never have to write. It actually physically pains me to put these words down, read them, re-read them, and commit them to the “submit button.” Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is goes beyond disappointment. It devolves into insulting and unashamed humiliation of the …

Review: Synology DS216+ First Look

A few weeks ago Synology sent me a DS216+ to review. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a lot of time to give it the thorough examination as I had wished, but I did manage to do a couple of quick tests in a temporary (that is, don’t try this at home or for a long-term solution) configuration. Overall I found the …

Review: The Order 1886 (VG)

Arguably one of the most beautiful, photo-realistic video game ever created, the gorgeous The Order: 1886 looks like it should have been an instant top 3 games of all times. In fact, if you go by screenshots or gameplay trailers alone, you could even be duped into questioning anyone’s willingness to pan such a glorious achievement. Unfortunately, the beauty with …

Review: Imprisoned by the Prisoner, Part II

It’s worse than I thought. Originally in my previous post I was concerned about the loss of the spirit of the show, as the program was decidedly anti-corporation and the protagonist was weak, incapable, and extremely difficult to identify with. Little did I know that it could actually be *worse* than that.
