GHX Ep. 23: Sick Trees

leave a comment »

This week we officially resurrect Gaming History X and kick it off talking about…almost nothing related to video games.  Trees is sick, Fred saw Tomb Raider, and no one drank on St. Paddy’s Day.  The conversation quickly turns to games as the two discuss “indie AAA” games, why Burnout Paradise Remastered totally holds up, the expulsion of loot crates from Battlefront II, and the abysmal game that is Haze.

Opening song includes a track used, with permission, from Ozzed.
Closing song is a sample from Shamroctoroc by Doctor Octoroc.

Mirror’s Edge Review

leave a comment »


Mirrors Edge was released back in 2008 and believe it or not this year was quite the year for EA releasing new IPs to the new consoles. We got Army of Two, Dead Space, and Mirror’s Edge all in the same year. Now whether you like these titles or not is a matter of opinion but this was a good time to be a gamer. Despite my love for survival horror and heartily awaiting the arrival of Dead Space, it was hard to ignore just how unique and different Mirror’s Edge looked. It’s time to revisit this title and see how it holds up today.

Battlefield Hardline – First 45 Minutes of Campaign Quick Look

with 3 comments

Update 03/20/2015:  Fred decided to play the whole game so now it’s part of a playlist that will autoplay if you start with the original video.  Basically, it’s all automatic if you watch this.

Original Post: So Battlefield Hardline is hitting store shelves in the US on Tuesday and I cannot believe that they have yet to show off more than a handful of minutes of the game’s campaign.  With Dead Space‘s Visceral games creating the campaign, you would think EA would put more push behind it whether or not it’s any good.  Oh well, thanks to EA Early Access we got the opportunity to experience, and get some colorful commentary on, the first 45 minutes in this Quick Look.  Check it out.  (Please Note: This video is unplayable in some countries due to licensing issues, sorry, out of our hands).
