Video Game Review: Automatron DLC

April 18, 2016 | by Jeff Cater | Comments Comments Off
Automatron DLC
Pink-colored bringer of death? Why not?

The first of many DLC packs for everyone’s favourite recycling simulator, Fallout 4, has recently been released. To kick off its Season Pass content, Bethesda has us building robots and tinkering with their features in Automatron.

A nefarious villain thought to be a myth has made himself, and his goals, apparent. The Mechanist will enslave the whole world with his robotic army, if everything goes according to plan that is.

Your goal is to stop him, preferably by giving him a dose of his own medicine by assembling your own robots in battles that would make Real Steel get all hot and bothered.

After beginning the initial quest and rescuing a robot named Ada, you’ll need to hunt down tons of resources and scrap parts to make your bots. Want to slap Codsworth’s arms to a treaded chassis? Go right ahead! Want to make an Assaultron that uses flamer throwers instead of knives? Be our toasty guest!

Freedom and the creativity of creating your own bots or modifying found ones is the real meat of this DLC, as the additional campaign content only clocks in at about 5-to-6 hours, depending on how much time you spend at the robot station.

The cool thing about this DLC is that it doesn’t necessarily take place post-campaign, so any bots you come up with can be taken on the entire journey with you provided you’ve reached the minimum level to start on the quest.

OVERALL (4.5/5)

It’s a great start for DLC, because Fallout 4 is already host to hundreds of freedoms, and the Automatron DLC certainly adds a lot of time. Granted, much of that time is spent at the workbench, but it’s time nonetheless. And building robotic death machines is just flat out awesome and something fans have wanted since first stepping out of Vault 111.

Video Game Review: RBI Baseball ‘16

April 13, 2016 | by Quinn Potter | Comments Comments Off
For what should be a fun, enjoyable game that you can jump right into, RBI’s controls have an awfully steep learning curve. Looks can be deceiving. Balls don’t end up where you think they will, nor do players react how you think they should. You can’t remap the controls, which is disappointing, because that might provide some shortcuts that would help you enjoy the game more.

Video Game Review: EA Sports UFC 2

April 11, 2016 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
While UFC 2 offers far more ways to play than its predecessor, its Career Mode is nearly identical, which is a disappointment. You once again make your way through The Ultimate Fighter, earning a contract with UFC and starting your ascent through the ranks. Early on you’ll be given three potential fights to choose from, though as your career takes off the game will sometimes mandate opponents.

Video Game Review: Cold Darkness Awakened DLC

April 7, 2016 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
Initially armed with just a knife and her trusty bow and arrow, Lara must navigate a creature-infested base in an attempt to reach three towers producing the chemicals. There’s definitely a survival horror feel to it with Lara lighting her path via flashlight and the unsettling movement of the infected, which are blind but will be alerted by sound.

Video Game Review: MLB The Show 16

April 4, 2016 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
Franchise has good depth and is the recipient of some fairly minor improvements. Probably the most significant is the Morale system, which is based on player happiness in their current situation with the club or where they play and so on. Expanded stat tracking is also appreciated, especially in a sport so historically associated with numbers.
