Why Would You Buy? – Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 is the third installment in Ubisoft’s Far Cry series and this time abandons the African savannah environment of its predecessor. Instead it features an absolute massive world filled to the brim with hundreds of vicious animals and twice as many angry pirate soldiers who eat bullets for breakfast and can’t wait to…

Why Would You Buy? – Killzone: Shadow Fall

Killzone: Shadow Fall was probably one of the most noteworthy games back when Sony’s Playstation 4 launched in November. Dutch Guerilla Games have traveled to the futuristic planet of Vekta and dumped a modern version of the Berlin wall in the middle of it. Tensions are high between the ‘good guys’, the VSA, and the big…

Why Would You Buy? – Far Cry 2

Far Cry 2 claims to be the direct sequel to the first game of the series, but in all honesty it’s hard to see where that all comes from. The island/jungle paradise of the first game have been thrown in the trash and replaced with a anomymous, war-torn, African hell on Earth. Expect a lot…

Why Would You Buy? – Battlefield 4 Next-Gen

With the launch of the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One, the Battlefield franchise can finally make its debut on the next gen consoles. EA and DICE have rolled out the big guns, the big graphical muscles and 32 v 32 multiplayer in an effort to really stick it to Call of Duty this year…

Why Would You Buy? – Payday 2

I think we all remember that one scene from The Dark Knight where the Joker and his goons take out the bank in Gotham City. So wouldn’t it be nice if a game actually made it possible? Guess what – Payday 2 lets you do just that. Clown masks included. But remember to bring some…

Why Would You Buy? – Hotline Miami There is a fine line between something being old and something being retro. Games can be old and dated with nothing particularly interesting in the light of today. On the other hand, they can awake nostalgia and draw you back into how it was back then. And Hotline Miami…

Why Would You Buy? – Grand Theft Auto V

Why Would You Buy? – Grand Theft Auto V For five years almost the entire planet has been hungry for yet another addition to the Grand Theft Auto franchise. And now, after tons and tons of hype and anticipation, it is finally here. Why would you buy Grand Theft Auto V? Because traveling in real…

Why Would You Buy? – Spec Ops: The Line

Last year, in september, a presumably muscly, patriotic and generic shooter was released. The developers talked a lot about how tons and tons of sand found in sandstorm-ravaged Dubai could significantly change the way you fought. In my opinion, that was a mild exaggeration – because honestly it didn’t really do any difference. However, it…

Why Would You Buy?: Lost Planet 3

During the last week, I had the dubious privilege of playing the latest addition to Capcom’s ‘Lost Planet’ series. I had never played any of the previous games, but when the game fell in to my hands, it was time to journey to the frozen planet of EDN III. These are the reason of WHY…
