Backtracking Alan Wake

by Jack Wageron January 28, 2016
Alan Wake was announced at E3 2005 for next-gen consoles and PC. 5 years later, Alan Wake launched exclusively on Xbox 360, followed by a PC release in 2012. Despite having a large budget, backing by Microsoft, and developed by Remedy Games (Max Payne), Alan Wake could not gain traction as a powerhouse franchise. But its story and main game mechanic will forever be why Alan Wake is one of the greatest games ever.

Backtracking Hotline Miami

by Jack Wageron January 31, 2015
I didn't understand the hype when Hotline Miami was released. I'm still not as hyped as some, but I did thoroughly enjoy my journey through 1980s Miami!

Backtracking Halo: CE Anniversary

by Jack Wageron September 11, 2014
Halo: Combat Evolved is the game responsible for putting Xbox on the map in 2001. Without Halo, I'm unsure how successful Xbox would've been. Despite Halo making Xbox what it was, I never cared about Halo: CE. Graphics are OK, story is mediocre, and there's only local multiplayer.

Backtracking Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs

by Jack Wageron June 20, 2014
I don't like Disney movies. I don't like cartoons. I bought Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs solely for achievements. I expected it to be bad, except I enjoyed it. That's a lot of I's, but they're all true. Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs is an excellent game for all ages that encompasses an enjoyable platforming experience with an interesting story and of course, easy achievements :)

Backtracking Disney’s Bolt

by Jack Wageron May 2, 2014
Disney's Bolt... ugh, frustrating. It's a 'kid's game', any gamer should breeze right through it while experiencing a fun story, flashy graphics and overall a short game (4 hrs). Although, my expectations were everything this game is not. It's not bright but very dull colored, story is OK, and the game is insanely long. Very repetitive with sections that just drag on, not to mention numerous camera issues that make the entire experience more frustrating.

Backtracking Tornado Outbreak

by Jack Wageron March 10, 2014
From the second I saw this game I was 100% interested. Give me a good price and it's mine! Well, that good price came along and it became mine, digitally. Principle, become a huge tornado and destroy everything in your path. The coolest part about it is you, the tornado, a little tornado guy, so the tornado is a character and isn't just a bunch of wind that started because of crazy weather patterns.

Backtracking Crysis

by Jack Wageron February 17, 2014
Crysis is one of the most popular first person shooters of all time. It mainly receives merit because of its incredible graphics. Even today, 5 years after the game originally came out, Crysis is still a graphical marvel. Despite its age, it wasn't until Oct. 2011 when I started to play Crysis, and Nov. 2012 by the time I finished it.

Backtracking Batman: Arkham Asylum

by Jack Wageron April 1, 2013
Batman: Arkham Asylum is one of the most talked about games this generation. Arkham Asylum brought Batman back to mainstream video games, and it had such great success it even spawned an equally successful sequel. Let's go back to August 2009, Batman: Arkham Asylum demo is released and I quickly download it, just like every other Batman fan in the world.

Taking a step back, not just to Backtrack and finish this game, but to remember some better times in gaming.
