One Hour Tour: Rise Of The Tomb Raider

Welcome to a new One Hour Tour! I was kind of in a gaming slump so I had decided to tackle some of my backlog. Up first was Rise of the Tomb Raider. I had surprisingly enjoyed 2013’s reboot of Lara Croft’s adventure so I picked up the PS4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider on Day 1, but considering I was probably caught in some other games, I didn’t jump into it sooner. But now, not knowing what to play, I decided to finally play ROTR and boy was it a fun ride. I loved every minute...

One Hour Tour: Rogue Trooper Redux

Welcome to this week’s One Hour Tour! This time, I’m taking through a bit of Rebellion’s Rogue Trooper Redux. A remake of the 2006 third person shooter inspired by the Rogue Trooper comics. TickTock Games did a wonderful job bringing this game up to par. While obviously no Sniper Elite 4 visually speaking, the gameplay holds up pretty well and the game looks great for a budget priced title. Easily one my favorite game this year. And yes it was one my favorites way back in 2006....

One Hour Tour: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

Welcome to this week’s One Hour Tour! After patiently waiting for Capcom to provide a more complete experience, I finally give Street Fighter V a spin. Keep in mind I purchased Street Fighter V on Day one two years ago for that sweet Ryu statue that came with the limited edition. After rumblings of the game being a glorified demo, I refused to play it. And I’m a long time Street Fighter fan dating back to the Super NES era. Although Capcom said they’d never release another edition of SFV, they clearly went back on their word. And well...
