Skyfall: The IMAX Experience

Monday, November 26, 2012 No Comments

When discussing Adele’s Skyfall theme, people would often tell me that it sounded similar to older Bond theme songs, and I consistently responded saying that I believed (not having researched the song’s composition) that it was meant to be a return to the franchise’s classic style, thus mixing old and new. Little did I know […]

Wreck-It Ralph

Monday, November 12, 2012 No Comments

Nostalgic, funny, well-written, well-acted, graphically impressive. Can you name a film, in this day and age, that fit all of those bills and more? For me the answer is “Wreck-It Ralph”. Tired with being the unappreciated bad guy in an arcade video game, Wreck-It Ralph leaves his game to prove that he can be something […]

Wednesday, April 4, 2012 No Comments

Hey everybody! Frequency is back! Oh. No. Wait a second. Why does it have the Rock Band name on it? What’s going on here? Well, Harmonix gave G4’s X-Play an exclusive announcement interview last night, revealing its upcoming title, Rock Band Blitz. The new, instrument-free title is coming as an Arcade title for Xbox Live […]

Sony Computer Entertainment America announced the release of a must-have bundle for Playstation 3 today, at least for newer gamers who might not have heard of or seen these titles yet.

The Asskickers

Friday, September 23, 2011 No Comments

The Asskickers is a lovingly hand-drawn side-scrolling beat ‘em up title that brings to mind classics like the Ninja Turtles arcade game, Double Dragon and, to some extent, Golden Axe, only better looking versions thereof. Unfortunately, that’s basically where its positives end. The environment refresh rates are slow, the character animation is highly lacking and […]

Kirby Wii Brings Franchise Back to Roots, With Bonuses, at Nintendo E3 2011 Review

Thursday, July 28, 2011 1 Comment

One of the games Nintendo of Canada was showing at last week’s E3 2011 review event was the recently announced Kirby Wii. The name may still be a working title, but this game, first shown at Nintendo’s E3 2011 Press Conference, is already set to release this fall. It’s pretty clear that Nintendo was hedging […]

The Big Lebowski rolling onto Blu-ray August 2011

Tuesday, May 31, 2011 No Comments

I have found over the years that there are films that I enjoyed when I was younger which I don’t enjoy anymore. So it being years since I’ve seen The Big Lebowski, which is making its Blu-ray debut on August 16th, I can’t honestly say whether I’d still enjoy it as much as I did. […]

Hard Corps: Uprising

Tuesday, February 22, 2011 No Comments

An ode to the classic Contra franchise, Hard Corps: Uprising is (please excuse the unavoidable pun) truly for hardcore gamers. It’s as unforgiving as it is stylish (excluding some occasional lame sound effects and voice overs), and features gameplay that will have you clutching the controller to keep up with the constant onslaught of enemies […]
