Bioshock Infinite

Bioshock Infinite

Friday, April 5, 2013 No Comments

Yep, Bioshock Infinite is incredible. Everything from the story, gameplay, graphics and soundscape was just top notch. In terms of plot, it sets itself up in a very similar fashion to the original Bioshock game, but instead of an underwater world, this one blasts you off you into this enormous and breathtaking sky city. Why […]

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 No Comments

Fast. Fierce. Fun. Yes, those are definitely the right adjectives for describing the gameplay in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Sending its regular stealth and espionage gameplay right out the window (or at least hanging out of it by a short thread), Konami turned to Platinum Games to give the long-running franchise a Vanquish-esque makeover (will […]

Star Wars Pinball

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 No Comments

I could probably gush about the The Empire Strikes Back table for Star Wars Pinball all day, if not for our 100 word limit and if there weren’t two other tables included in the pack. So, to be concise, the Empire table wholly lived up to my hopes. I was instantly hooked. I was also […]

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 […]

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale Box

Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale (PS3)

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 No Comments

Though its fast-paced, four-player beat-em-up gameplay is very similar to the Smash Bros. franchise, Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale is nowhere near the attempted knockoff I expected it to be. That’s not to say that it’s a better game, or worse for that matter. It just has a significant difference in execution. It’s essentially a […]

Zone of the Enders HD Collection North American Box

Zone of the Enders HD Collection

Thursday, December 20, 2012 No Comments

I simply cannot understand how Zone of the Enders became a cult classic. Yes, the first title was a relatively fast-paced third-person action game, but more “relative” to Final Fantasy than, say, Vanquish. And my lord was the story ever pretentious, with its loose naming connections to Egyptian lore and a plotline following a whiny […]

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3

Tuesday, December 18, 2012 No Comments

Rarely do I play a game that has rich characters. Usually it’s a blank-faced male lead, who’s, on occasion, exaggeratedly inflated with testosterone, and a Foreign/Alien antagonist hell bent on world domination. But Far Cry 3 broke that mold and introduced some really compelling and deep characters. In addition, the game itself is wonderfully engaging. […]

Assassin's Creed 3

Assassin’s Creed 3

Monday, December 10, 2012 1 Comment

I think a more fitting name for Assassin’s Creed 3 is Gatherer’s Creed 3, as you spend an exponentially larger amount of time gathering information and materials than you do assassinating. I understand that in order to uncover who to slay next requires some exploration, but the ratio of time spent gathering to killing is […]

Dishonored

Dishonored

Monday, November 12, 2012 No Comments

The style of Dishonored is very reminiscent of Bioshock. The general ambiance, and the cartoonish look to the characters and environment, gave off a comparable vibe. And much like Bioshock, you have a variety of weapons and supernatural abilities at your disposal. On top of that, each level has multiple avenues you can take to […]

Just Dance 4

Just Dance 4

Monday, November 5, 2012 No Comments

Just Dance 4 manifests differently depending on the people playing it. You have those who have never played it but are enthusiastic and are comfortable making fools of themselves. You have those who are too shy and anxious to make fools of themselves. And you have those who are pros at the game who are […]
