Jason Hidalgo's Reviews

Jason Hidalgo covers business, technology and key topics for the Reno Gazette-Journal newspaper and website. He has won multiple journalism awards for his reporting and also spent time as a Fulbright scholar in Japan, where one of his friends declared him to be a hopeless "otaku." Can't really dispute that.

Still, the game is a fun romp for kids as well as adults looking for a different kind of shooter. It's especially enjoyable when you have a full map of zombies and plants jockeying for field supremacy. If you enjoy multiplayer shooting and don't care for a solid campaign mode, then you might find yourself pleasantly surprised with how entertaining Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare can be.

Ultimately, "Romance Dawn" provides a quick pirate RPG fix for One Piece fans but doesn't come close to dethroning Skies of Arcadia.

Overall, Elder Scrolls Online does not revolutionize MMOs but is a solid entry in the genre. If you don't like MMOs or are getting burned out from them this probably won't change your mind, especially given its slow start. If you like the genre and also enjoy Elder Scrolls-style combat, however, then this game will likely be more your cup of tea.

4 / 5.0 - LEGO The Hobbit
Apr 15, 2014

Overall, though, it's a solid rendition of the Lego formula. If you're a fan of the series or are looking for a family-friendly game to play with your kids, then Lego The Hobbit will likely be a precious experience for you.

4.5 / 5.0 - Mario Kart 8
May 15, 2014

If you're a fan of Mario Kart, getting this game is a no-brainer. And if you're someone who took a break from the series, I still recommend trying Mario Kart 8 out. It just might rekindle your love for Mario-style racing.

Ultimately, whether or not Wolfenstein works for you depends on your shooter preferences. If you're all about multiplayer, then this game is not for you. If you're like me and love a meaty campaign with a good story, however, The New Order delivers the goods. Add extras like the Wolfenstein 3D easter egg and the encouragement of a second playthrough and there's a lot to like here for lovers of pure shooters.

4 / 5.0 - Watch Dogs
Jun 10, 2014

The game won't be for folks who prefer a more straightforward action game or shooter. But if you're a fan of open world games and would like to try one with a more cerebral approach, then you'll want to hack into Watch Dogs and give the title a spin.​

Overall, the gameplay isn't quite revolutionary but is a very solid representation of the genre. Add charming touches, likeable characters and lots of bonus content and you've got another Disgaea title that should satisfy fans of the series and Japanese strategy RPGs in general.

Overall, though, I quite like the Ultimate Evil Edition on next-gen consoles. So much so that they are now my platform of choice to play the game, even though I'm much farther on the PC. Heck, I even started a new character — again — in order to play with a cousin who's just starting as can be seen in the footage in this video. Ultimately, that's good thing.

Unscored - Madden NFL 15
Aug 21, 2014

Even with the new mechanics, gameplay isn't radically changed, which will likely disappoint players who crave for more major additions. For folks who like Madden's basic gameplay, however, the new additions add some polish to the product. And while the lack of a major gameplay overhaul can be debated, graphics definitely take a big leap forward.
