Epic Quest

Monday, April 23, 2012 No Comments

The Epic Quest table for Pinball FX 2 and ZEN Pinball sets an interesting precedent for pinball games. Even after you’ve lost, your game is saved, allowing you to continue from that point the next time you play. With your experience and loot saved, you can continue the table’s “story”. Designed to blend pinball and […]

Then your eyes spot a flavor that, just from the way the shades of brown and off white are swirled together with ribbons of caramel, your mouth begins to water. You wipe your salivating lips with the […]

Lockout

Thursday, April 19, 2012 No Comments

As you know, most big-budget action and science fiction films these days tend to be large, unabashed piles of crap. Lockout, however, does not necessarily fit within that category, as it is really more akin to a small plate of nachos smothered- no… drowning in cheese. This sci-fi/action/thriller is so loaded with action flick clichés […]

Xenoblade Chronicles

Thursday, April 19, 2012 No Comments

The first thing I noticed about Xenoblade Chronicles was how subpar the graphics were. And with its vast landscapes, mechanical creatures and all the rest in between, this game had so much potential to look incredibly breathtaking. But it didn’t!

The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games

Monday, April 16, 2012 1 Comment

I don’t get it. What are the Hunger Games meant to accomplish? Why are they pitting kids against each other in a deathmatch? All I could ascertain from The Hunger Games (the movie) was that it had something to do with subverting violence, maybe. But what form of logic did they use to conclude that […]
