Dear Valve, thank you for driving me insane with a constant sense of pending doom. Thank you for bringing back amazing puzzle and physics-based gameplay elements while somehow managing to introduce new and exciting features as well. Thank you for the hysterical humour that made me laugh out loud. Thank you creating a backstory that […]

Thursday, June 2, 2011 1 Comment

2K Games did a little bit of teasing in advance of E3 2011 today, releasing the first standalone gameplay video for The Darkness II. As you’d expect, the video showcases the game’s Quad-Wielding combat system, which lets players hold weapons in both hands while hacking, slashing, gnashing and bashing with The Darkness’ Demon Arms.

Sony Holds Infamous 2 Launch Event in Toronto

Wednesday, June 1, 2011 3 Comments

Earlier today, Nathan and I attended a launch event for Infamous 2. Sitting down to try the game for ourselves, we came away with many positive and, sadly, negative thoughts. The comic book-style story presentation is pure eye candy, with a mix of animated comic and real time cutscenes. The movement and combat gameplay is […]

Portal 2

Thursday, May 12, 2011 No Comments

As excited as I was at the news that Portal 2 was going to be over 4 times longer than its predecessor, I was also slightly fear ridden as well. You see, what made the first Portal so great was how short and, well, sweet it was, and this one being much longer, I was […]

Call of Juarez: The Cartel, which is being developed for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC, takes place in the […]

DJ Hero 2

My immediate problem with DJ Hero 2 is that I loathe the majority of the so-called “songs” in this game, because most of it’s just noise to me. That problem aside, I don’t understand how some of the gampelay has any consequence in this Bop It like game or has any correlation to actual DJ-ing. […]

Bionic Commando

Thursday, September 23, 2010 1 Comment

Bionic Commando is a game that had a lot of potential, but, sadly, didn’t live up to it. This story about a soldier with a bionically-enhanced grapple arm – sort of a sequel to its classic 2D namesake – and his mission to reclaim Ascension City from a group of bionic terrorists had a great […]

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

Friday, February 19, 2010 3 Comments

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a western first-person shooter with a fully loaded storyline following the story of two brothers on the hunt for gold, hoping to rebuild their homestead. The story takes two unique, but intertwining paths, allowing you to play as either brother. It’s just a shame that it ends up […]
