Weekend Flashback Review – Dance Central 3

Originally Posted December 22nd, 2012.

Dance Central was a weird one for me. Harmonix had already made me a fan with the Rock Band franchise, and I had gotten a kinect for Christmas. Dance Central and it’s other games ended up being some of the best games for the Kinect. They were fun, silly, but more importantly, worked so incredibly well. The songs weren’t amazing, purely because of my own taste, but it was a good laugh to just flail around with friends and dance the night away.

Weekend Flashback Review – APB Reloaded

Originally posted February 14th 2012

Something a bit different this week, APB Reloaded is the free-to-play resurrection of the originally Scottish developed APB. A GTA MMO before GTA Online, APB was Realtime Worlds next title after Crackdown, and it had a good premise. Unofortunately, after it was picked up and rebranded, it suffered from pay-to-win weapons, and repetitiveness. While it has evolved a lot over the years, it’s still going. I don’t know how the game stands currently, but if it’s still getting updated then surely there’s a dedicated fanbase that enjoy the game enough to keep it alive. At least now it stands as a monument to a Scottish Developer that had trouble staying afloat.

Weekend Flashback Review -World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

Originally posted January 21st 2011.

So I can’t lie. I’m back into World of Warcraft. Blizzard got their hooks in me and now I’m looking forward to Legion, their newest expansion coming out. I’m having fun doing dailies, building up my garrison, and generally immersing myself in a world I’ve known so well for many years. So, this week, I’m flashing back to when I reviewed the last expansion I played when it actually came out; Cataclysm. Note: I lost the screenshots, so added in selfies of my current WoW Character, not the gnome this review is based on, because screw you Alliance.

Overwatch – A Clash of Heroes

The beta is over, for good this time. Overwatch is already a huge success for Blizzard, and it’s the first new IP (I don’t count Hearthstone) for a very, very long time. We already know it has an amazing art style, superbly designed and diverse characters, and a great cinematic team creating lore for the game. Why is everyone hooked though?

World of WarCraft – My Week in Draenor

I’ve been a player of World of Warcraft since the early days. I played every expansion pack, even raided during Wrath of the Lich King and reviewed Cataclysm when it dropped. Cataclysm was when I stopped playing regularly. I started with friends at University in my first couple of years, switching to a different server and to Alliance (For the Horde!) for them. We got too busy and I just stopped. Then, before Warlords of Draenor hit, I decided to get into Mists of Pandaria when it was on sale. I played for a few weeks, didn’t finish the content and then stopped completely for about the 5th time. Then, last week, Blizzard sent my an email. They had upgraded my account to the newest expansion, and offered a free week of game time. It was hard to resist.

Weekend Flashback Review – Warlock: Master of the Arcane

Originally Posted July 30th 2012

Keeping with the Indie PC Games, Warlock: Master of the Arcane plays like Civilization 5 if it were set in a fantasy world, instead of embedded in history. A fun twist on a classic, it added in things like multiple maps via portals, spells that you can cast, and of course a number of different mythical creatures. A fun game, with a sequel that released in 2014, The Exiled, it finally added multiplayer, and is a game I’ve always considered picking up.

What’s Coming Soon – May 2016

What’s Coming Soon is a series once a month where I go over what content you can expect from Sitoxic Gaming for that month. This will include planned articles (Reviews, Features, etc.), YouTube Content and planned Twitch Streams. It’ll be different every month and may not go into specifics but it will help you know what to look forward to in the future.

The second of my monthly update series, there’s a few things I’m working on. I’ll be trying to get a bit more regular on articles (which should be easier with E3 coming up soon) and make sure that there’s a bit more content on the way rather than the sporadic releases thus far.

Weekend Flashback Review – Unstoppable Gorg

Originally Posted February 7th 2013

Tower defence games are few and far between these days. Recently, we’ve had Defence Grid 2, but mostly, the genre has tended to be a small feature added to other games. Unstoppable Gorg was one of the classic TD games that just felt fun to sit back and play a few rounds. It reminded me of the days of WarCraft 3’s Tower Defence maps, where the game type really evolved from, and for me, was mainly what I played online during WarCraft 3’s lifespan.

Gears of War 4 Multiplayer Beta – First Impressions

Gears of War 4, now headed by The Coalition rather than Epic Games, is coming soon, and it’s Multiplayer Beta has just opened up for everyone. You get the chance to play 3 new maps, a new game-mode (Dubbed Dodgeball) and good ol’ Team Deathmatch. But has anything really changed or improved for the next in the franchise?

Weekend Flashback Review – Street Fighter X Tekken

Not being a huge player of fighting games, mainly because I suck, Street Fighter X Tekken interested me purely on the premise of two fighting games converging.

Either way, from all the fighting games I’ve played, this one is certainly one of the more interesting ones.
