Peter Pan - 3

Peter Pan

Thursday, January 31, 2013 No Comments

I have this memory of Peter Pan being this long, epic Disney film. However, clocking in at an hour and sixteen minutes, it’s significantly shorter than I recall. It’s still a magically awesome adventure, but it struck me as odd at how short it actually was. Also, watching it for the first time since my […]

LEGO: The Lord of the Rings

Thursday, January 31, 2013 No Comments

There must be something wrong with me… Once I pick up LEGO: LOTR, I can’t put it down. Sure, that bodes well for the game, but it’s an absolute horror for my circadian rhythm! It’s a fun adaptation of Peter Jackson’s films, distilling the action down to the core story and throwing in typical LEGO […]

Yarn Yoshi Winds Up Wii U Excitement

Tuesday, January 29, 2013 No Comments

Nintendo’s President, Saturo Iwata, released a whole stream of major first party news for Wii U in last week’s installment of Nintendo Direct. And while that mass announcement included two The Legend of Zelda games (one of which is a high definition remake of Wind Waker, which I still say is a highly underrated game […]

Forza Horizon

Forza Horizon

Tuesday, January 29, 2013 No Comments

Forza Horizon differs somewhat from its predecessors, but it retains all of the key elements to maintain its awesome legacy. Being an open world game, it definitely has more of an arcade tone to it. It’s still very much a simulator, but some of it has been toned down to accommodate for the nuances that […]

The Tyranny of King Washington to Begin Next Month

Monday, January 28, 2013 No Comments

Finally! Okay, that may have sounded far more exasperated than necessary, but after waiting since before the game actually launched, and through two DLC release announcements, it’s nice to finally see a concrete release date for the first part of The Tyranny of King Washington episodic DLC for Assassin’s Creed III. Adding a nice extra […]

Gangster Squad

Gangster Squad

Friday, January 25, 2013 No Comments

The violence in Gangster Squad was gorily gratifying. Though shockingly brutal at times, it was as realistic as I would imagine such acts of carnage to be (mind you, I’ve never personally seen someone get ripped in two). On top of that, the movie had a nice comedic tone underneath the gangster theme, the set […]

Rock Band-playing Aerosmith fans will enjoy Harmonix’s announcement today that it will be adding six new tracks, available in a track pack, from legendary rockers Aerosmith with next week’s Music Store Update. You could say that the addition of the tracks is in promotion for the band’s recent Music From Another Dimension!, since the announcement […]

Gravity Rush

Friday, January 25, 2013 1 Comment

A story about a physically self-conscious teenage girl and her magical, gravity-shifting cat, working to reunite the pieces of a broken town and, maybe, uncover said girl’s past, Gravity Rush may not come across as a hit title, but its gameplay and non-teenage self-talk storyline make it so. For one thing, shifting gravity as a […]

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 No Comments

Let the cannibalising begin! You read that correctly, THQ, which filed for Chapter 11 late last year, is now being sold off, piece by piece. We found out through Ubisoft’s announcement today, that it has acquired the former publisher’s Montreal development house, THQ Montreal, and along with it the publishing rights to South Park: The […]
