New releases for the week of Monday, March 3, 2014

south parkFor the first week of March we have a couple of major releases. The biggest game this week would be South Park: The Stick of Truth, which was developed by Obsidian Entertainment (Fallout: New Vegas) in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios (the show’s creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, wrote the game’s script) and is being published by Ubisoft. From the trailers and videos of gameplay, it looks and feels like playing an episode out of South Park as you move Kenny, Stan, Kyle, and Cartman through a turn based fantasy adventure. Also out this week for the PC and PS3 is the second episode in Telltale Games The Walking Dead: Season Two...

Black Sails: Review of the episode “VI.”- Losses and gains

bs5WARNING: SPOILERS FOR THE EPISODE WILL FOLLOW.

“VI.” proved to be quite an eventful episode, resulting in a few gains offset by some big losses. Billy falling overboard (or did Flint help him?) was by far the most notable among those lost on the Walrus after they got most of the guns from the Andromache. For a moment, it looked like Flint would get away clean, until two members of his crew inadvertently triggered the bomb rigged by Bryson. The resulting fireball gave away their position to the Scarborough, which began shelling the ship as she tried to make her getaway. Prior to Billy falling overboard, Flint was questioning him about Miranda’s letter as they were trying to cut loose a piece of debris that was slowing the Walrus down...

Helix: Review of the episode “Level X”- The rabbit hole goes further down

helixWARNING: SPOILERS FOR THE EPISODE WILL FOLLOW.

Turns out Level R isn’t the lowest level in the base, as we find out in the aptly named episode “Level X”. Alan learns that level holds a “virus vault”, a secure room that houses the original strains of Narvik-A and Narvik-B, in addition to many other viruses (“They have more strains here than we do at the CDC,” Julia tells Alan). Naturally, the plan is to go down there, destroy all of the samples so Ilaria can’t return with their army and take the virus for themselves, and hopefully get out alive. In their way- all of the Vectors from Level R...

Arrow: Review of the episode “Time of Death”

arrowtitleWARNING: SPOILERS FOR THE EPISODE WILL FOLLOW.

After taking another break, Arrow returns with a new episode and a new villain, along with a revamped team as Sara/Black Canary has been worked into the fold. The villain in question is one William Tockman, aka The Clock King. As played by Robert Knepper (Prison Break, Hitman, Transporter 3), Tockman proves to be an intelligent and ruthless adversary who plots everything out down to the last second. His command of time aids in him stealing a device known as the Skeleton Key, which can open any bank vault in the city. Not only does Tockman know precisely how to time things out, he also is brilliant at hacking into computers, and infiltrates the team’s computers at one point, causing them to explode in a shower of sparks...
