Getting ramped up for Halo 3: ODST next week, I’ve been getting my fix of first person shooters lately. I mean come on; I can’t show up on Xbox live and look like a noob on launch day. Well September 1st, Timegate Studios and SouthPeak Interactive released Section 8, and after watching the trailer, man [...]
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?
After doing some searching for some good games to review, I came across 8monkey Labs’ newest title, Darkest of Days. I’d never heard of these guys before, as this title is to be their first big release game on both the PC and the Xbox 360. The basic idea is that time travel is now [...]
Well, it’s time to switch it up a bit and check out a game suitable for all ages. Brave: A Warrior’s Tale by Collision Studios is a follow-up to the enjoyable PS2 hit Brave: Search for the Spirit Dancer, and was released on August 4th. Now, I don’t have a problem playing a children’s game, [...]
Well, it looks like I’ve got a regular gaming session with my old college buddies every weekend now, so this week’s session was Castle Crashers, developed by The Behemoth. This was released just a year ago and has received great praise from many reviewers, and it’s a 4-player co-op, so we thought we’d give it [...]
Well it’s finally here; the much-anticipated next-generation Batman game has made it’s way to our hands on the Xbox 360, PS3 and the PC. After so many of the terrible Batman games of the past, I was really skeptical going into this game. Though, we’ve seen that the current generation of consoles have the power [...]

I set up a time for my buddies from California, Washington and Arizona to all get together on Xbox live, have a few beers, and hopefully play a great classic arcade game remake. It’s not often that I get the chance to play a game with all of my old buddies, so I don’t think [...]
After playing the first episode of the new Tales of Monkey Island, I just had to get my hands on Episode 2 to see what was going to happen next. “The Siege of Spinner Cay” was just released and I enjoyed it even better than the first episode. Now we have to freaking wait another [...]
Back in the early 90s, my mom came home with a brand new 2x Sound Blaster CD-ROM drive and sound card combo packaged with a handful of games. Among those wonderful games was The Secret of Monkey Island, the first of many graphical adventure games that I’d get the pleasure to play through my life. [...]
