Until Dawn - The Definitive Article

Greetings! You may know me as the author of the definitive Dead to Rights article (the longest videogame review ever - proving quality doesn't matter as long as you have quantity), the definitive Heavy Rain article, the definitive LA Noire article, and, of course, the still-unfinished definitive series of articles about Deadly Premonition. Then again, you probably don't know me, so consider that a super-self-aggrandizing hello. Point is, today I'm here to offer another definitive look at a video game - this time, it's PS4 interactive horror movie Until Dawn!

State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition Review

HIGH Watching zombies congregate around a beacon that's leading a missile right to them.

LOW Seeing my truck go flying because the physics engine decided the zombies I was plowing through were made of iron and anchored in concrete.

WTF To unlock a character, I have to make another character gravely ill and then execute them?

A revelation? Or a revision?

Resident Evil: Revelations 2

HIGH: Despite a slight redesign and new voice actress, Claire Redfield is finally back!

LOW: Doesn't really innovate nor add anything new to the universe.
