So, you’ve fought an ancient sun god and basically punched wild life and done all sorts of crazy stuff, what do you do for an encore?
This is Mike “The Birdman”Dodd and he is following up on the 2013 reboot of Tomb Raider with the timed Xbox One exclusive ” Rise of the Tomb Raider” today on RAD. We get our passports stamped and prepare to do some globe trotting before finally ending up in Russia in pursuit of an artifact that could change what it means to be human but Lara wants it for more personal or family related reasons.\
Frozen tundra, unforgiving mercenaries and even more vicious wild life await our adventurous archaeologist as she swings, shoots and crafts her way across the Russian landscape.
Does this game offer up enough to new material to make it a worthy successor to the reboot’s successor or will we discover this game at the bottom of a bargain bin?
Spartans of Fireteam TWIG, this is Commander Dodd. The UNSC brass has asked something pretty big of us..bring in the Master Chief for questioning and Spartan Locke of Fireteam Osiris. So whose with me?
In this edition of RAD, we bring you a review thats more or less been in the works for a little over a week. Mike “The Birdman” Dodd joins the UNSC that is hunting down the remnants of the Covenant still loyal Jul ‘Mdama and then…something happens that no one quite expects and it leads to a chase across the galaxy and the Master Chief on the wrong side of the gun. Halo 5 continues the story of the Master Chief but also introduces to new Spartans and even some fan favorites making a return. A new multiplayer suite and even some microtransctions have invade this franchise but is it for the better?
Mike also shares his thoughts on the collectors edition of this game from the statue to the limited edition goodies inside.

Put on your MJOLNIR class assault armor and get to your drop pods….
Is this game a worthy successor to the Halo story or is it simply milking the franchise we should have left back in 2007?

Autobots, prepare to face down the Decepticon menace once again as we need to defend our new home, Earth.
In this edition of RAD, we take our new Earth form…as a weird fat guy…and get ready to fight Megatron and his army in TRANSFORMERS: DEVASTATION from Activision and Platinum games on the Xbox one. This latest Transformers game takes it’s inspiration directly from the Saturday morning cartoon and gives us classic G1 looks and characters in a beat em up style gameplay. Optimus Prime and his Autobot forces are once again on the front lines of this Cybertronian war but who will win?
Will this g1 love letter be the game we’ve always wanted or we will go back to the Fall of Cybertron and forget this ever happened?
It’s been several long years but now, it is time to bring the plastic instruments out of retirement!
Mike “The Birdman” Dodd steps up to the bright lights of the stage and prepares to delivery his review of “Rock Band 4” for the Xbox One. The plastic guitar phase quietly died out a few years ago but a new generation of consoles has arisen, will the need to rock also follow?
This new Rock band has certainly changed it’s approach to it’s Rock star simulator but were all the changes for the best?
Are you ready to activate overdrive or are you simply over it?
Alright folks, its time trust your gut ropes and take on the forces of Scrotus…yes, that’s his name.

Set in the world created by George Miller and his apocalypse wastelands where violence is king and gasoline is more valuable then gold, our hero Mad Max is aiming to reclaim his prized “Interceptor” and maybe find himself along the way.
So does this game live up to the hype that was “FURY ROAD” this year or does this game simply not get “beyond Thunderdome”.
Two enter..and one leaves…
