Batman: Arkham City - Game of the Year Edition

Arkham City is a direct upgrade to Arkham Asylum: This installment managed to improve literally every aspect of it’s predecessor: Your movement is faster and combat is even more versatile, thanks to all the new gadgets and combat moves included. Remember those annoying Taser, Shield and Firearms bastards from Asylum? You can now destroy their weaponry which looks so badass. Basically you are now given even more tools how to proceed in both Combat and Predator situations. The enemies are more aware of Batman’s tricks - able to destroy vantage points or scan them using thermal goggles. We also get to play as Batman’s allies - Nightwing, Robin and Catwoman - who is my personal favorite due to her light-speed attacks.

Game of the year for a reason. Even non Diehard Batman fans can enjoy this masterpiece of a game years after the initial release. If you have never played it, you are doing yourself a disservice.

Sleeping Dogs

NOTE: I did not play 400+ hours of this game, it’s a Steam bug that multiplied my playtime. I inquired about it but got not response from support.


Wei Shen a police officer trained in the USA, now working with the Hong Kong Police Department has been sent on a dangerous mission. To infiltrate and gather information on one of the largest and most dangerous Triad Organization in Hong Kong. Will he break under pressure or will he do his duty as one of Hong Kong’s finest?


  • Nice Graphics: -I like the visuals but you can clearly tell it was developed with consoles in mind. The only redeeming factor on this area is that a free high-texture DLC pack is available for download. The world is adequately populated by NPCs though at times some parts of the City does look empty. It has a day and night system as well as a weather system which adds to the game’s atmosphere.

Sleeping Dogs is a third-person, open world action game following the base concepts of GTA, meaning a large city divided into sectors (all unlocked from the start), filled with main and side activities to take on and complete, each for different types of rewards. Unlike its bigger cousin, Sleeping Dogs focuses more on melee combat rather than firearms, featuring a decently complex, satisfying, and really spectacular system that delivers the “martial arts action movie” feel almost flawlessly in each fight. Players will impersonate undercover agent Wei Shun, and perform missions for both the Hong Kong police and Triads, while trying to maintain their cover story.

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition

This game has 1) an engaging story 2) interesting characters and most of all 3) a beautiful world. I’m not someone who plays this game for the gameplay (while being remarkably good for it’s time, especially the combat system), I play this for the gorgeous version of Hong Kong displayed here. It’s not photorealistic, and it’s nothing like a 1:1 remake of the city. Instead it captures some of the aspects that make a city feel like HK and lay them out over multiple districts. All that being said, this game most definitely shows it’s age in [CURRENT YEAR] and can be a pain to work with on occasion. There will be bugs, and it’ll probably make you restart certain missions. Despite that though, I think everyone should try this game at least once. It won’t be for everyone, but there isn’t another game like it. At the time of writing this, the game is on sale for $3, which I think i a totally fair price. It’s not worth its full $20 price tag, but if it’s on sale it’s definitely worth a shot.

“Friendship is everything. Friendship is more than talent. It is more than the government. It is almost the equal of family.”

~Mario Puzo, The Godfather

Ah, the good ol' True Crime series… Back in 2003, when Californian studio called Luxoflux (the guys behind Star Wars: Demolition) released their Streets of LA (the first game in the series), I was a pretty big fan. See, I always loved what Rockstar did in GTA III. They took Reflections Interactive’s Driver (the game, in which nobody made it past the tutorial) and put it into an open world environment. Awesome stuff. The problem is – I never liked the actual gameplay. The clunky controls, the missions that very often didn’t give you a fair chance to win in your first try, the fact that very often the game wanted you to re-play the entire sequence since very beginning after you failed… I know there’s heck of a lot of GTA fans out there, but personally, I never liked how those games felt. Still don’t, and even though the series evolved quite a lot since then, it still feels like a torture to me. Now, Streets of LA? It was a different story. It was a pure fun. It was extremely user-friendly (heck, the game even allowed you to skip the missions you didn’t like), the controls were tricky but comfortable, the open world was there, but the most importantly? The game had its own unique face. It was non-linear, it had the advanced melee combat, it had stealth elements (the worst part of the game, but still) and it did the “police simulator” thing surprisingly well. Up to this day, I love Streets of LA very much, especially that juicy Japanese version by CAPCOM that came with a cool Japanese dub. And yes, it was like Streets of LA was a Ryū ga Gotoku before the actual Ryū ga Gotoku. Especially thanks to its cocky storytelling.

Mafia II (Classic)

Mafia II (Classic)

Mafia II is one of the best organized crime games, especially if we take realistic games with organized crime as the main theme. It’s also one of the best third-person shooter, and aged very well, even a decade later, it still feels as good as back in 2010.


You play as sicilian immigrant, Vito Scaletta, whose family traveled to the USA looking for a better life, but reality turned out to be more grim and harsh than Vito’s parents imagined. Seeing how his father lives a miserable life and became a drunkard due to his hard job and poverty, Vito decided to not repeat his mistakes. His father eventually dies during the accident at the docks. He met Joe, a local bully and a cool guy, and eventually, due to lack of jobs and poverty, the two decided to become a small time criminals, thieves, essentially, during one such operation, Vito got caught, and between going to prison or helping USA with the invasion of Sicily, as a native italian speaker, he decided to go to war. And that’s only the beginning of his life path.

Welcome to Empire Bay. Sunny place full of opportunities for those who can take them. Yes, I’m talking to you Vito & Joe. Yes, you too Mr. Vinci. I see you over there Alberto Clemente. Yeah, that’s right Carlo Falcone. I can keep on naming these fellas over and over again because this game was filled with gentlemen like these.

Vito Scalleta got tired of bureaucratic bullsh*t so he got shot right in the butt, that he could leave Europe and go straight back to Joe, so these two can put in the work, get up in the Mafia hierarchy, sky rocketing up in the mob family ladder so he can get what they all want - THAT GREEN THING.

How I Found Out About “Just Cause 2”

The same way I found out about a lot of games, from YouTube. I randomly came across a video that was showing someone driving a vehicle off of a tall snowy mountain. The crash and destruction effects made me fall in love. See, I’ve always loved destruction in games/movies/etc. So when I see something like that, I know I must own the game.

If you’re looking for a detailed Just Cause 2 review then you’re at the right place.


+Just Cause 2 is the very definition of how a sandbox game should be made. Avalanche Studios mastered the art of creating huge open world simulators that lead them to Just Cause 3, Mad Max, Rage 2 and even new IPs.

+At 400km sq. JC2 features one of the largest open world maps ever! Everything is highly detailed, and diverse. Also, there are no loading screens unless you want to fast travel or participate in missions. There’s just so much to explore. From big cities to tropical islands, exotic beaches, sandy deserts, tall mountains, cold regions, dense forests and enemy bases. JC2 has it all!

Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™

Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™

I just……. can’t really Overappreciate the masterpiece that is Shadow of Mordor- a perfectly balanced blend between visual artwork, story, combat/stealth gameplay- and the whole newly- introduced with the series Nemesis system- Yes, I KNOW it’s glitchy sometimes - but it does Not mean it’s not worthy of any gamer’s attention due to lack of attention to detail from the Devs- since, they got occupied with the sequel….

A great ARPG, with tons of Possible builds for the main character, as well as even more possible boss -encounters…… And YES the Bosses are almost unique to each player - as well as their story with those bosses….

The general consensus regarding this game is absolutely spot on.

That is to say - It’s a fun action game. It looks good. It plays good. Everything about it is decent or at least acceptable enough to give a pass mark to.

But then the games unique selling point, the ‘Nemesis’ system single-handedly raises it from good to great. Worth playing just to experience the total craziness that occurs with that genius game design.

Right off the bat, the port is a bit of a mess, so here are a couple of tips:

  1. If the game outright doesn’t start, include the .exe (or the entire game folder) in your antivirus AND firewall exceptions.

  2. There is a “corrupted save” bug that has persisted since launch. Even if you’ve never played the game before, it will warn you of corrupted save data. Even if you deleted them, they will reappear on your next launch. Additionally, you can’t manually save or load, or the game will crash. The reason for this is that the game doesn’t play well with Steam Cloud. Disable Steam Cloud from the game’s Steam properties window, then go to “C:/Users/ username /AppData/Local/Sunset/Saves/ id " and delete “steam_autocloud.vdf”. This should fix the problem with both dummy corrupted save data and your own save data getting corrupted. It will also allow manual saving and loading. /id /username

Game was a blast! It was like what I wanted that most recent crackdown game to be. Fun powers and whacky story that made sense given the Saint’s history. Plenty of fan service for long time fans, but it didn’t bog down the experience for new players.

If you like have super powers in a sandbox, this game is for you!

Retro City Rampage™ DX

Retro City Rampage™ DX

I think the concept of this game is great. The idea is that it’s an open world crime game like GTA, but it’s set in video game land filled with parodies of almost any video game character you can imagine. It’s a brilliant idea, and fortunately the game mostly lives up to this great concept even if it falls short in some areas.

The game plays as you’d expect out of an open world crime game. However, the game tries to have a much better variety of mission styles. It doesn’t try to be only standard A to B shooting. The game tries to mix it up by including missions that are arcade-like or based on old NES games. Thanks to this the variety is incredible and every other mission mixes up the gameplay in some way, so you’ll rarely get bored. The quality of the missions do vary however. A good amount of the missions are fun and challenging, but others tend to be a little shallow and funnled, not leaving a lot of room for experimentation. On the whole though, the biggest problem with the missions in this game is that they’re all a bit short.

What can I say? I love this game. I can’t even write from an objective standpoint here to make an honest and fair review with this one. I’ve spent over 20 hours with this game here on steam, gotten every achievement- and even then- I didn’t quit. I took the time to Gold Medal all the optional missions too. I seriously can’t get enough. I tried for hours to put my name up on the leaderboards. I’m in the top 20 for lots of the missions and I’m quite proud of that. But enough about me.
