Soul Calibur V Cover

Soul Calibur V

Wednesday, March 21, 2012 No Comments

Soul Calibur V greatly improves on the features implemented in Soul Calubur IV, while adding new features that create new scenarios for players to think about when fighting against friends or the CPU. While the story explains who the new characters are, it isn’t necessary to complete to unlock new characters or stages. However, it’s  […]

A Very Sleepy Gaveaway

Wednesday, February 1, 2012 3 Comments

Update: Contest is now closed We’ve been positively itching to start getting our giveaways and contests going for this year and, finally, one studio has answered the call (the one that we didn’t quite put out yet, so good on you!). We’ve got some good stuff to giveaway, and not just to one person. No, […]

Winnie the Pooh

Tuesday, November 8, 2011 No Comments

Review You can consider all of the issues I had with Winnie the Pooh null and void. Yes, the film is quite short and, aside from the large screen, that made it pointless to see in theatres. However, it is an absolutely marvelous, deliciously cute (I can say that, right?) film! So now that it’s […]

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 […]

Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World

Thursday, September 8, 2011 1 Comment

It’s not quite sufficient to say that Spy Kids 4 is a bad video game because that doesn’t really take into account the younger demographic for which the game was constructed. “Constructed”, because it feels slapped together. The level menus are strangely coded, there are many sluggish graphical points, save points are only between levels […]

One Day

Tuesday, September 6, 2011 No Comments

How many ways are there to say “I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it”? That seems to be my predicament, as One Day, a story following the events of two friends on the same day each year, was enjoyable but contained a couple of aggravating flaws. Firstly, the basis of their entire relationship […]

The Help

Monday, August 15, 2011 No Comments

Period pieces are an interesting type of film, requiring the environments, actors and even the attitudes to appear as they did back in the day. While I can’t confirm the accuracy of The Help, the story of three women who compile a book of stories recalled by black housekeepers to expose ingrained racism in Jackson, […]

Winnie the Pooh

Monday, July 18, 2011 2 Comments

I’m torn. I absolutely loved Winnie the Pooh. It was well written, playing magnificently to both kids and adults, and a treat for the eyes, featuring animation lovingly emulating the classic style. However, it was far too short, even with the pre-feature short. As it reached the end, I was left wondering where the second […]

Battle Slots RPG

Wednesday, May 11, 2011 No Comments

Battle Slots is another example of an interesting concept-turned poorly executed product. It is an RPG in theory but, to its detriment, focuses on its slot-based combat system more than any of the RPG elements. It does include a leveling system and customizable add-ons, but those features all play second fiddle to the egregiously repetitive […]

HTC 7 Surround (w/ Video Review)

Thursday, February 17, 2011 No Comments

The HTC 7 Surround is the only Windows Phone 7 device that, as its name suggests, features a surround sound speaker, and I can understand why. It’s pointless and doesn’t really work! Even if it worked, the only situations where you’d need surround sound on a mobile device without headphones would be in places where […]
