Wii U Game Party: Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition

Tuesday, December 4, 2012 No Comments

If you’ve played the franchise before, you know how awesome Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition is before even playing it. Right off the bat it earns roughly 3,000 points! The gameplay is as fluid and satisfying as on the other consoles, but what this version has that the others do not is the ability to […]

Wii U Game Party: Game Party Champions

Monday, December 3, 2012 No Comments

Having been spoiled by the Wii Sports games, I was initially underwhelmed by having to use the stylus to play Game Party Champions. Why would I want to play a collection of sports games including mini-golf, basketball, baseball, table tennis, so on, and not flail my arms around like a faux professional? But, after some […]

Wii U Game Party: Scribblenauts Unlimited

Friday, November 30, 2012 No Comments

Scribblenauts Unlimited, much like its predecessors, has a lot of fun potential. However, I don’t know how I feel about it on a console, as I happen to think it works better as a handheld game. But, seeing as how the controller is a handheld device, this game allows you not just to play it […]

The introduction to Far Cry 3 is one of the best opening scenes I have ever seen in a video game. The characters are rich, the graphics are pristine, it’s funny, it’s thrilling, and it’s highly captivating. And getting to experience it in a room set up like a screening, just made it feel that […]

Nintendo is not the little kid it used to be. For years we’ve seen a plumber traverse mushroom-related worlds to save a princess (who was always in another castle) stomping on mushroom-related bad guys and turtles along the way. We’ve seen an adorable pink ball fill up with air and float across a vibrantly colored […]

We knew this game was coming. Even when all the folks from Bungie and Microsoft said that the Halo story was done, did anybody really believe them? Yeah, that’s what I thought. And so, this Tuesday, video game journalists from across the GTA, myself included, attended the Toronto media launch event for Halo 4. The […]

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 […]
