Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

Skeptical was what I was when I began playing Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. When you attempt to transfer a beloved, storied universe from one media to the other, you’re under a lot more scrutiny than you’d be if you’d started fresh. But like Alejandro Jodorowsky said about Dune, you have to disrespect your source material if you want to successfully create new life. Behold: Shadow of Mordor.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet LTE Review

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet LTE Review

Welcome back to what I consider the world’s most versatile tablet. When I reviewed the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet just a few weeks ago in its Wi-Fi edition, it became immediately clear what NVIDIA was aiming for - a tablet that’s made for gamers, but rolls with the punches for anyone else that might want to take a stab at it. With the LTE version of this slate, I honestly can’t think of a tablet better suited to be my one companion for travel, at-home entertainment, and gaming.

Goat Simulator Review: iPhone, Android, Addiction

Overnight there’s been no sleep. Not while the goat roams free. Goat Simulator has been released for iOS for iPhone/iPad/iWhatever as well as Android, and it’s glorious. We’ve taken the time to get acquainted with the first big segment and let me tell you: this game is the first on-screen controls-having Android/iOS game I’ve ever truly not minded using on-screen controls with.

Alienware x51 R2 Review with AMD Radeon R9 270b

Here in the late Summer of 2014 we’re having a look at a gaming PC from Alienware that’s continuing to aim for console-beating power after nearly a year out in the wild. This review isn’t like most SlashGear reviews where we review a product early - sometimes before it’s on the market. Instead we’re taking a quick look at how this device squares off against the PS4, the Xbox One, and other similarly-sized competitors.

PlayStation Now Review

PlayStation Now Review

This review is going to be short for one reason, and one reason only: there’s not much to say. PlayStation Now works, and it works great, but until its pricing model is changed to be more like Netflix, I can’t imagine Sony having a massive amount of success with it. Not because it’s not worth the price, mind you.

Watch Dogs Review

Watch Dogs Review

Watch Dogs will make you fear for the Smart Chicago of tomorrow, but it won’t change the way you play video games today. Watch Dogs does a lot right in its packed set of features and oddities - including a new set of ways to roll with a multiplayer experience. It also forgets to carve new paths in many places other than online.
