If you read our impression of Tom Clancy’s The Division you know where I stood on the beta of this highly anticipated release. I was somewhat unimpressed, felt like it had its fair share of problems and was left wanting more. Sufficed to say, after spending 15 hours with the full game I got a lot more and then some. This game is perfect, as a game rarely ever is, but The Division does a whole lot more things right than wrong. Continue reading →
Let me be the first to say I was not impressed by The Division’s Open Beta, I was not blown away by what some have dubbed “The Destiny Killer”. Not that Destiny needed any help killing itself, Bungie made sure to keep that game on life support and bled it dry as long as it could, but that is beside the point.

Sorta. Continue reading →

Portable games…some gamers see them as the ugly stepchild to their console brethren, others… filler? Truth is portable games carry a stigma that follows them constantly, at least to more seasoned folks. They need to be bite sized enough to actually be portable while also needing to captivate immediately be it by the game mechanics, story, graphics or whatever else. Something needs to “hook” you in to actually want to play it. Enter the almost 2 year old but freshly released Hitman GO: Definitive Edition for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Is it the portable Hitman game you always wanted? Probably not. Is it a different approach and something different? Oh yeah! Let’s take a look. Continue reading →
Before we get down to the nitty gritty of the review we wanna take this opportunity to explain the N4L Gaming review system, truth is you guys can go get scores from the big name gaming sites. So we plan on delivering no BS, no paid for reviews that will be summed up with our opinion on if you should Buy it, Rent it, or Skip it. Now without further ado
Oh Street Fighter V, you have such good intentions, honestly you do. I can tell Capcom wants this game to be THE end all be all 2D fighter of this console generation. Unfortunately in its present state you are missing a few key elements in living up to that moniker. Continue reading →
