Mirror’s Edge

Thursday, February 18, 2010 3 Comments

Whoever said first-person platforming wasn’t possible really deserves a smack on the forehead, because Mirror’s Edge proves it is. This fast-paced, hyper-realistic and deeply story-driven game, in which all you are really doing is running for your life, is way too much fun to put down. The graphics are stunning and the music gets your […]

The Wolfman

The Wolfman

Thursday, February 18, 2010 No Comments

I am in a state of arrant bewilderment. The Wolfman, a film that lacked depth in both its story and characters, was positively abhorrent. There is not one redeeming factor to that movie. Even Benicio del Toro, an otherwise phenomenal actor, wasn’t very pleasant to watch. And despite the possibility that his acting may have […]

Aegis Wing Background

Aegis Wing

Wednesday, February 17, 2010 No Comments

Seriously impressive for a free game, Aegis Wing is a must have for your Xbox Live Arcade collection, and not just because of the price. While it’s not a very long game, Aegis Wing is a full fledged side-scrolling space-based shooter, with full in-house and online multiplayer, weapons power-ups, frantic gameplay and some very cool […]

The Hurt Locker

The Hurt Locker

Wednesday, February 17, 2010 1 Comment

With the amount of Oscar buzz surrounding The Hurt Locker, my anticipation and excitement were piqued. Unfortunately, my bated breath was not fully compensated. It was not very realistic, there wasn’t much of a story, and character development was virtually non-existent. In fact, we never really learn much about the personalities at all. On the […]

We’re tired of seeing movies that give up cinematic excellence in place of explosions and cheap gimmicks, and we’re not going to take it anymore! Click the link to watch!

Inglorious Basterds

Inglorious Basterds

Tuesday, February 16, 2010 No Comments

Judging by the trailer and the fact that this is a Quentin Tarantino film, I had hopes for copious amounts of blood spraying, limb hacking gore. Sadly, Inglorious Basterds spent most of its efforts on build-up, leaving the movie with a rather anti-climactic ending. It was not bad per se. It had its moments, but […]

Burnout Paradise

Tuesday, February 16, 2010 2 Comments

Burnout Paradise is one of the best arcade style racing video games I have ever played. Its open world concept lets you free-roam through a city created for speed, exploration and, even better, smashing stuff. Best of all, the developers keep adding major game changing content to keep the experience fresh, though you may have […]

Lips

Monday, February 15, 2010 No Comments

While I truly do enjoy karaoke, Lips really isn’t the kind of game I expected to see in today’s social/casual video game market. While it has a very nice look and style, and some very interesting and useful features, including the ability to sing to your own music via various external devices, Lips just feels […]

New Moon

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Monday, February 15, 2010 4 Comments

The Twilight Saga: New Moon made me so nauseous that it induced a cerebral hemorrhage. The blood from which clogged up all the major receptors in my brain, causing me to fall into neurogenic shock. It was pretty painful. The point is, this movie was horrible! The plot began nowhere and ended nowhere, the acting […]
