Wednesday, August 31, 2011 No Comments

Have you heard about Digital Reality’s upcoming aerial combat racing title, SkyDrift? No? Oh, thank goodness, I thought I was the only one! The publisher announced today that the game will be launching on Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network next Wednesday, September 7th, and features high-speed aerial racing in one of eight planes-turned-combat-fighters, […]

The Company Men

The Company Men

It’s disturbingly ironic how Hollywood is capitalizing off of those who were financially affected by the economic downturn. The Company Men, another film of that variety, may not have been bad (for a drama it was able to hold its own), but recommending it is a whole other issue. I mean, if you (or someone […]

In this week’s video, L.E. and Nathan head to Muzik nightclub in downtown Toronto for Microsoft’s X’11 event! The annual holiday preview event was loaded with so many games that there wasn’t enough time to see them all, so we took a look at a few of the particularly interesting ones.

F.E.A.R. 3

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 No Comments

There may have been elements of horror in F.E.A.R. 3, but overall it just felt like a more ominous Call of Duty. Sure there were some spooks, but those moments were few and far between, and the rest (or majority) of the game was just your standard first-person shooter. Not to say that it isn’t […]

Duke Nukem Forever

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 1 Comment

I want to say that playing Duke Nukem Forever has left me conflicted – appeased by a hit of excessively violent, campy nostalgia, but disappointed by graphical inferiority, unnecessarily slow loading times and its refusal to even try innovating. I would, but the mix of the aforementioned issues and the game’s lackluster attempts to be […]

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Rise of the Planet of the Apes started off with a decent share of promise. Sure it was a bit splotchy, but I was ready to be taken on the journey, hopeful that I was in for an entertaining ride. But then it started slipping into stupidity. And the more the movie progressed the further […]

Epic Showcases Gears of War 3’s Horde 2.0, Beast Modes at X’11

Monday, August 29, 2011 No Comments

As you probably already surmised from the headline, Epic Games showed off the Horde 2.0 and Beast multiplayer modes from Gears of War 3 at X’11, and I’m happy to say that I was thoroughly impressed by both. Horde 2.0 builds on some already great cooperative survival gameplay by giving you more than just your […]

Forza Motorsport 4 puts me in Top Gear at X’11

Friday, August 26, 2011 1 Comment

Forza Motorsport 3 was a fantastic game, with highly realistic graphics, a wide range of beautiful cars, and loads of races to compete in. And I thought that Turn 10 had hit their peak, the pinnacle of excellence for the series. Well, I was wrong. At last week’s X’11 event, they were showing off Forza […]

I’ve mentioned in previous rantings how actions movies today suck. And I usually, if I’m discussing an older film, show how a good movie doesn’t need special effects. But I don’t think I ever actually referenced a specific movie that encompasses what a great action film would be. Well, as it so happens, I watched […]

Rayman Origins Puts the Fun in… Classic at X’11

Thursday, August 25, 2011 2 Comments

Ubisoft is bringing Rayman back to his roots with its upcoming title Rayman Origins. It’s the first Rayman platformer in years and the first title in the franchise to actually focus on Rayman himself since… well, the second title in the Raving Rabbids portion of the franchise. Michel Ancel and his team have been working […]
