Review: Roxio Game Capture HD Pro

Over the last month or so, I've been able to take advantage of the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro (a mouthful indeed) and test out its myriad of features. To be honest I was a little perplexed as to where the device would sit within the market now that both PS4 and Xbox One have native gameplay capture and streaming functionality, but as I discovered there is still a demand for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U capture and streaming.

Review: Might & Magic X Legacy

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but in the case of Might & Magic X Legacy, maybe it’s time to teach the young dogs of today some ‘older’ tricks. This classic first-person style RPG from Ubisoft will take even the most nostalgic of gamers back to their younger days. Lending on storylines and lore from the Might & Magic universe, the game expands on the well-established Might & Magic world and adds to an untold storyline arc, but retains races and creatures familiar to fans.

Review: OlliOlli

For a small independent title, there's been a lot of noise about OlliOlli. A skateboarding game with a bent towards score chasing and trick combos, it has a lot to thank the Tony Hawk series for. That series sadly grew stale over the years, adding an unnecessary story and generally getting too big for its own worth. Eventually, what had originally rekindled an interest in skateboarding became an exercise in hyperbole made real; later titles in the series were incredibly unrealistic and impossibly grandiose.

I feel bad for Eidos Montreal. After all, Nic Cantin and his team have been hard at work on the stealth reboot since 2008, and in the last year all we’ve heard about is the game has come from die-hard fans complaining about XP.
