You are on vacation with your friends in Bangkok partying and having fun. You all decide to go skydiving and land on the beautiful and exotic Rook Island with a gorgeous jungle environment, luxurious beaches, all kinds of wildlife, and controlled by INSANE PIRATES. You play as Jason Brody on vacation with a friend, your brothers, and your girlfriends when you are taken captive by pirates led by their insane leader Vaas.

Far Cry 3 is an open world first person shooter that incorporates a randomizer for non-story related world events. This means that when roaming around the world hunting, taking over outposts, treasure hunting, or just driving around, the events that occur will never happen the same way twice. For example, while trying to take over an outpost...READ MORE

An asteroid is hurtling toward Earth and you are one of the few chosen to be placed in suspended animation in an Ark to help rebuild civilization after the Earth is habitable again. You awaken 100 years later to find…

Rage comes to us from the creators of Doom and Quake. The game attempts to combine a wasteland survival game like Fallout with a combat racing game. Both aspects of the game are fun to play but become repetitive because the game world is small and every area is associated with multiple missions/objectives. You will go through every wasteland building/area twice along a specific path for missions. The second time through, you will go along the same path but in reverse. The “open” world area is used for racing and vehicle combat so after the first few races in a given area you have explored everything in the open area.

The graphics are good, the combat racing is fun and frustrating at times, some of the characters are unique and funny, and there are a few mini-games that you can play to pass the time. Unfortunately the storyline is somewhat derivative...READ MORE

You are Corvo Attano, Lord Protector of the royal family of the fictional plague-ridden city of Dunwall. The Empress is killed, her daughter is kidnapped, and you’re framed for it all. How will you get your revenge?

In your pursuit of the culprits behind the Empress’ death you will have various upgradable weapons and supernatural abilities to help you along the way. One of the coolest is the teleport ability. It allows the player to literally teleport anywhere within a certain range to get around or behind patrols, or to reach higher location and roof tops. I wish the developers would have increased the overall range of this ability but that doesn’t diminish its effectiveness for assassination or to get out of trouble. If you’re playing this game I suggest you acquire and upgrade the teleport ability before anything else...READ MORE
