It’s finally time to compare these games head to head. I’ve made it no secret that I prefer DMC4 over DmC, but when I put them side by side hopefully you’ll see why.

DmC vs DMC4 Breakdown and Review. Part 2
I should have played DMC4 before DmC in this retrospective. The games control so very different that it’s jarring to go from one back to the other. I was so used to the pulls and dodges of DmC that it took me much longer to re-acclimate to DMC4’s traditional controls than I’d like to admit.
DmC vs DMC4 Breakdown and Review. Part 1
In light of the rumors of a DmC HD remake swirling about, I thought it would be a good time to review and compare the last game of the original series, and this reboot. Since this will get out of hand and become a massive wall of text, I’m going to divide it up into three parts. One for each game, and a final part to compare. There will be some spoilers, but nothing you wouldn’t see coming from a mile away.
Hyrule Warriors DLC talk.
After watching Derrick of GameXplain stream a few hours of game play on Twitch, I have to say that Hyrule Warriors looks good. A lot of my fears were alleviated. However, a new can of worms has been opened.

With the announcement of an HD remake of the Resident Evil “REmake,” I thought I’d look into the classic survival horror genre and why it has gone downhill.

What is “good” DLC?
I recently made a post about Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Sunken King DLC, and the topic of DLC is still fresh on people’s mind’s after the Hyrule Warriors Direct. Many people are complaining that it even has DLC. Well that’s a load of bull. Believe it or not there are good and bad ways to handle DLC.
A Review of Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Sunken King
The first of three DLC packages for Dark Souls 2, the Crown of the Sunken King primarily takes place the poison plagued, subterranean sanctum city of Shulva. While Dark Souls 2 may be looked at as inferior to the original, I never saw it as anything less than a stellar sequel, so my expectations for the Sunken King were high.
