Unless you’ve been living in a cave this past week, I’m sure you’ve read about the horrendous launch of Maxis and Electronic Art’s latest SimCity title. Having not played a SimCity game since SimCity 2000 so many years ago, I was pretty upset to hear that the launch went so poorly and that so many gamers were left with a purchased product plagued with issues that are still being resolved today. While there were still some outstanding harsh issues with the game, I was still willing to give it a shot.
2013 has turned out to be a hell of a year so far for successful AAA games and we’ve got another to add to the list. Released on March 5th, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix’s latest entry into the Tomb Raider series reboots the franchise to follow Lara Croft on her first expedition and tomb raid. For years the press has been spamming us with screenshots, artwork and videos showcasing the much younger, darker, would-be heroine to amp us up and for me, it was worth the wait!
If you watched my video “I suck at Dead Space 3” a few weeks ago, you certainly would have noticed that I hadn’t played the previous Dead Space games, that I had no idea what was going on, and that I was absolutely TERRIBLE at the game! For these reasons, I wasn’t all that excited for the full game to be released. I had trouble controlling my character, understanding what my abilities were and how to use them, and everything was just kicking my ass. Well, my opinion has changed drastically since then as starting from the beginning of the game put a new perspective on everything.
It’s been a while now since I’ve played a good classic JRPG. With the large amount of shooters and action games released over the past few months, I haven’t been able to get my fix. Unfortunately, when I first looked into Level 5 and Namco Bandai’s latest JRPG, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, originally released in Japan on the Nintendo DS, I thought it looked kind of stupid. I’ll tell you straight up, after playing through this, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Some neat plot twists near the end really take it from what I originally though was kind of a kids fairy tale-type of story, into something pretty special.
It’s been over four years since we last took part in Dante’s action-packed and extremely intense devil-slaying adventures. Released last week under new developer Ninja Theory, most recently known for their action game Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, DMC Devil May Cry reboots the series with a focus on a much younger, much more hot-headed Dante as he battles a new army of demons. There has been much controversy over the new direction of Dante from Ninja Theory, so is there any merit to the complaints from long-time fans, or does the new entry kick as much ass as the previous in the series?

Well it’s time for another pretty controversial review. See, nearly all of the big-name reviewers out there have given Sega and Obsidian Entertainment’s latest Espionage Role Playing Game Alpha Protocol, not just bad, but TERRIBLE reviews. I’ve got to say, my opinion on the game is COMPLETELY different from what seems like everyone else’s. While [...]
Just over a year ago I started making game reviews and Super Mario Galaxy was my second one. Well, released just last week was Nintendo’s Super Mario Galaxy 2 so of course I had to pick it up. Nintendo offered me a loaner copy of the game to review, but I don’t want no stinking [...]
Well this has certainly been a big week with video games. With the release of Red Dead Redemption, Prince of Persia and Super Mario Galaxy 2, we’ve got a variety of games to keep any gamer busy for a while. Despite the recommendations of many followers and pretty much all of my gamer friends, I [...]
Well it was my birthday this past weekend, so it was nice that I had a relaxing and hilarious adventure game to play as I fought off a terrible hangover. The latest episode of Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, titled The Tomb of Sammun’mak releases today and takes place immediately following the events of [...]
Every now and then I like to throw in a review of a short little downloadable game for you to mix things up a bit. Last week after releasing my 3D Dot Game Heroes review, Atlus sent me a code to download and review their latest Xbox Live Title Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition. Now, if [...]
If it hadn’t been for a guy at the local GameStop, I likely would have never heard about the Silicon Studio’s latest game, 3D Dot Game Heroes. Hearing things like it’s a modern day remake of The Legend of Zelda in high def with an 8-bit look and feel, I had to investigate. I contacted [...]
