I am fighting a Lumen Sage inside the stomach of a massive demon stingray named Insidious. Seems odd right? Wrong. This is the world that Bayonetta 2 cultivates. Non-stop action with over the top set-pieces. Inside this world of madness, Bayonetta 2 sets itself apart as one of the greatest action games of all time and the new gold, or should I say platinum, standard for hack and slash.
Quantum Break is a unique experience and one that I intend to experience again. The game takes a chance in its storytelling with the television show.

In its attempt to draw in a casual audience, Dead Rising may alienate series veterans. While I love the direction the series is taking, I fully understand the sentiment.
