What do you think of the end of Disney Infinity?

Tetris, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros, and many other games do not have stories. After my last article about video games needing stories, I had some people say, ” Ya, but this game doesn’t have one.” And its true. Not all video games need stories. In fact, I’ll just…

Guitar Hero Live Review

Just on the heels of Rock Band, Activision launched their own music game. Unlike the Harmonix giant, Activision completely changed up the way we thought a Guitar Hero should play, making Guitar Hero Live a completely different experience, something you will have never played before.

While Guitar Hero Live does things I like, I keep wanting to go back to the old school, five button system. Perhaps I'm stuck in the ...
