Review Written March 22, 2014

Another game from my Christmas sale binge, Lone Survivor is another recent title that I pursued without knowing any prior information about the game.  Created by Jasper Byrne of Superflat Games, Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut is an atmospheric survival horror game reminiscent of the Silent Hill Series.

New Additions: Week of March 3rd 2014

As Naughty Dog’s first attempt at single player DLC following the positive reception of The Last of Us, this addition to the main story has some big shoes to fill. Not surprisingly, Left Behind does fill those shoes quite well in maintaining the story flow similar to the main game as well as bringing the emotional drama that many of us have come to savor from the Last of Us.
