Rise of the Tomb Raider DLC Offers Value For Season Pass Holders

One of the most reasonable criticisms about season passes is the idea that we are paying for something that isn't even in existence yet. Games like the Fallout franchise justifies the appeal by boasting a positive track record of offering hours upon hours of extra gameplay well after the initial game's release. Call of Duty games and other shooters feed off of gamer's need to stay current, particularly on the tournament scene, by making map expansions the primary reason for...

Games Abyss Play Corner: LittleBigPlanet 3

We here at Games Abyss wanted to introduce to you our newest contributor, and we figured what better way to do so then to bring him in on a Let's Play of one of his favorite games of last year.

Games Abyss Play Corner: Dragon Fin Soup


Games Abyss Play Corner: Dragon Fin Soup

The inaugural title from Grimm Bros. has been a sweetheart of ours for a couple of years now. The amount of time it took from announcement to release has been a hell of a journey, but it's recent release has given us cause to exhale and finally see what the finished product brings to the table. With a revival of the roguelike kind and a splash of booze, we get a very different Red Riding Hood who ain't from your grandpappy's fairy tales. Andy and myself decided to dive in and...

Games Abyss Play Corner: Metal Gear Solid V


Games Abyss Play Corner: Metal Gear Solid V

Opinions about the latest (and in all likelihood, last) Metal Gear Solid game aside, it is one of 2015's most high profile releases. Hell, one of this entire generation's crowning glories. It may not be a perfect game, but it's still a ton of fun to play. To that point, Andy and myself fired up the ol capture card and decided to show off some of the finer points of what the game offers. Gameplay choice, and of course the relentless mocking of the hilarious name generator your...

With Sony confirming that its 1st-Party showing at E3 being a bit on the lighter side, it has left many a gamer wondering what Sony has planned to show off. Sure, Morpheus will likely take center stage, but what about the games? Does Sony have plans to reclaim its beloved marsupial mascot?  Will we...

Road to E3 2015: Ubisoft Media Briefing Discussion & Predictions

Oh, Ubisoft. What would E3 be like without Yves Guillemot taking center stage at the Orpheum Theater.  Well, it just wouldn't be E3 without it. And apparently, it wouldn't be an Ubisoft Press Event without Aisha Tyler displaying her unmatched enthusiasm for all things gaming. Picking up where our last Road to E3 2015 series left off, Matt and I make our way to downtown Los Angeles to visit the Orpheum Theater and discuss old reliable Ubisoft. With this year's briefing...
