Mark of the Ninja Steam Capture

Mark of the Ninja Now Available on Steam

Thursday, October 18, 2012 No Comments

If you’re a PC gamer who was feeling a little left out because Klei Entertainment’s side-scrolling stealth action title, Mark of the Ninja, only released for download to Xbox 360, well, that’s just plain silly. All you needed was a little patience, because Klei announced the game’s release for PC, via Steam, this week. Yes, […]

Ubisoft Developing Downloadable Accompanying Game for The Expendables 2

Thursday, June 28, 2012 No Comments

Here we go with yet another licensed movie to video game adaptation. Well, at least the possibilities of screwing it up are slightly lower (there’s always still a chance, after all) because it is a shooter… I think. Well, either way, Ubisoft unveiled its development of a The Expendables 2 video game adaptation for release […]

Ubisoft Unveils Intriguing New Action-Adventure IP, Watch Dogs, at E3 2012

Wednesday, June 6, 2012 1 Comment

With so little time to cover E3 this year, I’m left a bit to the sidelines, to watch, mostly. So with a bit of time at my disposal to write about something from the show, it doesn’t seem quite fair to write about the known or expected major titles being shown (though I still hope […]

The Avengers

The Avengers: IMAX 3D Experience

Thursday, May 10, 2012 1 Comment

Alright folks, it’s official. The first major blockbuster of the summer is here, and since it is still very much spring, I believe that this is an early gift to us from the Mindless Action Movie gods. No, The Avengers won’t win any critical praise for character development or writing, but the viewers do get […]

Lockout

Thursday, April 19, 2012 No Comments

As you know, most big-budget action and science fiction films these days tend to be large, unabashed piles of crap. Lockout, however, does not necessarily fit within that category, as it is really more akin to a small plate of nachos smothered- no… drowning in cheese. This sci-fi/action/thriller is so loaded with action flick clichés […]

Xenoblade Chronicles

Thursday, April 19, 2012 No Comments

The first thing I noticed about Xenoblade Chronicles was how subpar the graphics were. And with its vast landscapes, mechanical creatures and all the rest in between, this game had so much potential to look incredibly breathtaking. But it didn’t! And sure, the fact that it’s on the Wii is primarily to blame, but I […]

In Bruges

In Bruges

Thursday, February 23, 2012 1 Comment

In Bruges is not an action movie in the American sense (highflying explosions, shallow characters, more explosions, cliché storylines, and more explosions, (oh, and let’s not forget explosions)). But I would also go as far to say that it’s not an action movie by any standard. It was more of a dark comedy/drama with a […]
