https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeF3UTkCoxY This past Monday (5/2), Infinity Ward released the reveal trailer for the next game in the Call of Duty franchise. The next title, Infinite Warfare, has everything from an enormous robot grappling with a tank to combat in space. I highly suggest watching the trailer before reading this article, though. I personally felt excited and disappointed by the 'gameplay' that was displayed in the...
Supercell, the hit app developer that created Clash of Clans, has released a new and addicting game that has captivated Jesuit once again. Amazingly, Jesuit was already enthralled by the game even before it was released in the USA! Players began playing this marvelous game when sophomore, Zack Butz, discovered the game on YouTube and brought it to Jesuit. He shared...
"Some day the flame will fade and only embers will remain." This exact quote has been rehashed and muttered by countless characters in the Dark Souls franchise. The climatic end to this trilogy is a spiraling descent into utter madness which forces the player to examine the game worlds darkest motifs. For the uniformed, the Dark Souls series is...
Statistically, a 95% chance to hit a target seems like superb opportunity to take a shot on a target. XCOM 2 has reinforced the opposite mentality.

These are my top 10 games of the year. However, I did take into account review scores and critical reviews from noteworthy reviewers and websites in...
A pair of dice rolls across the table, slowing down as four tense players hold their breaths. The cubes come to a stop displaying two sixes on top. One player cheers with joy, while the others groan in pain, disappointed that such a riveting game finally has a winner, or at the very least, a winner other than themselves....
*This review is exclusively for the Xbox One version of the game. Few students at Jesuit had any idea that such a cinematic and well-polished game like the Rise of the Tomb Raider was being released the same day as Fallout 4. In fact, the majority of gamers had no idea that the next game in this series reboot was even coming out. Although, I blame...
There are spoilers in this review, you have been warned. There is certainly a unique aesthetic and feel to nearly all of the games developed by Bethesda Game Studios. They have a phenomenal record and pedigree for creating games that exhibit all of the key elements needed for a successful open world role playing game (RPG). Fallout 4, their latest...
