Babel Rising

Babel Rising

Monday, July 30, 2012 No Comments

Like any good arcade game, Babel Rising is quite addictive (and occasionally frustrating). After every level, I wanted to see what was coming next, what slight challenge bump the game had in store. Using the four elements (although you can only use two of them in each level) in a three dimensional space, you have […]

A hands-on look at Pro Evolution Soccer 2013

Wednesday, July 25, 2012 1 Comment

Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2013 is releasing in a few months (sometime in October, though the exact date has yet to be revealed), and I was privileged enough to get an early hands-on look at it. In a small boardroom (named Molière) of an immaculately shiny office in downtown Toronto, I played a match of […]

We’re getting there, folks. Getting to that point where even the smallest of games can have the biggest impact. From our standpoint, as both critics and consumers, that can be a great thing. For the people making the games, that point can either pose a great difficult or an amazing challenge, and much the same […]

Shame on you, Mirror Mirror. You took a magical story and completely bastardized it, treating the source material like a cheap hooker. I’d rather have a disease infested raccoon crap in my mouth while scratching out my eyeballs and chewing on my scalp with its rabies caked mouth than watch this again. The only reason […]

Either way, March 19th, 2013 is now the release date of the upcoming installment in the Gears of War franchise, subtitled Judgement. Under development in cooperation […]

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises was my least favorite film of the trilogy. All the overhyping, and having a predecessor as awesome as The Dark Knight, definitely got me off on the wrong foot going into the theater. After seeing it, however, those two concerns were overwhelmingly trumped by all the nonsense in the film. The […]
