Mad Riders

Tuesday, October 30, 2012 No Comments

My goodness! Techland has actually done it! They’ve created a game that doesn’t feel like a massive tech demo! Sure, it’s an arcade title, and it’s smaller than full retail titles… and it’s an offroad racing title that plays very similarly to other arcade-style offroad racing games, but still. Mad Riders is fast, fun, and […]

PES 2013

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013

Tuesday, October 16, 2012 No Comments

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is one tough cookie of a game. It took me many losses to finally score a single goal. But let me tell you, the moment I did, it was like finding a cheesecake… amazing! Moreover, every subsequent goal filled me with the same sense of satisfaction. In terms of graphics, the […]

Darksiders 2

Darksiders 2

Thursday, September 27, 2012 No Comments

With its enormous running time, Darksiders 2 is one of the longest action/adventure/hack n’ slash games I’ve played. And for that, I graciously tip my hat to THQ/Vigil. Moreover, the action was very satisfying! However, there are a few things that made me raise an eyebrow. For example, why does Death need a gun? And, […]

Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat

Thursday, August 2, 2012 No Comments

I remember playing Mortal Kombat for the first time on the Sega Genesis (Mortal Kombat 3 to be specific). I recall being enamored by all the moves and powers the different fighters could utilize, the blobs of fake blood that would fly off characters in a highly unrealistic fashion, the failed attempts at executing fatalities, […]

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 […]

With Trial Evolutions being as fun as it was, I was somewhat trepidatious going into Mad Riders. What are the odds that two arcade games based on dirt related vehicles would be good? Well, as it turns out, it is actually quite superb as well. It’s fast paced, the graphics are sharp, there are many […]

Babel Rising

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 No Comments

Somehow I get the feeling that Babel Rising would have done really well had it been made a few years ago. This biblical take on the Tower Defense genre has a quirky design and puts you into the role of a god, smiting non-believers who are attempting to build a tower to the heavens. Unfortunately, […]

Prototype 2

Prototype 2

Friday, June 15, 2012 No Comments

I love the way the Prototype series handles the sandbox element. It’s a vast landscape that never really feels huge. And that’s thanks to all the abilities your character can employ to navigate through the concrete jungle of New York. On top of that, the combat in Prototype 2 is very satisfying. The mechanics are […]

Deadliest Warrior AC Cover

Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat

Tuesday, May 22, 2012 No Comments

It doesn’t take a lot of time with Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat to realize this is poor man’s Mortal Kombat… Tekken… Killer Instinct? It’s not about lengthy combos, super powered magical moves or awesome finishing moves (although those actually aren’t half bad). It’s about historical accuracy, like the show, right? Yeah… “Historical accuracy”… We’ll go […]

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 […]
