Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea, Part 2 — Review

Check out my reviews of the full game, Clash in the Clouds, and Burial at Sea Part 1! Black screen.  Ominous music.  You hear the familiar, yet anxious voice of Booker Dewitt saying, “Liz, I’m so sorry!”  The equally familiar sound of a Big Daddy’s drill revving comes screaming over everything until Elizabeth replies, “No, you’re not… but you’re about […]

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance — Review

Running up and down a building vertically.  Hopping between missiles being fired at you by a helicopter to cut it in half.  Ripping spines out of other cyborgs to heal yourself.  These are a few of the things you will do in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.  It’s an absolute blitz of giving physics the finger, but can be incredibly frustrating […]

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II — Review

I’ve decided to take a break from my recent run of new releases and knock out a few old Xbox 360 games I’ve been meaning to play.  First up on the list, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.  I played through the first one multiple times because I enjoyed it so much.  Unfortunately, the sequel is incredibly short and underwhelming. […]

Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea, Part 1 — Review

Full game review The first DLC for Bioshock Infinite, Clash in the Clouds, was fun enough in it’s own right but not what players had their sights set on.  No, that would be Burial at Sea, the two-part campaign bringing us into a pre-destroyed Rapture as Booker and Elizabeth.  Part one has been out for some time, but I finally […]

Batman: Arkham Origins — Review

The Dark Knight.  The Caped Crusader.  The World’s Greatest Detective.  No matter what you call him, it’s hard not to love Batman.  Batman has been part of American culture since his inception in 1939, from comic books and television to movies and video games.  Previous entries in the Arkham series have been great in their own right.  Arkham Asylum introduced […]

Far Cry 3 — Review

I remember hearing all about Far Cry 3 when it came out last year and thinking it sounded pretty good, but never got around to playing it.  After playing and loving the hell out of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, I again thought I should give Far Cry 3 a shot, but put it off some more.  I’ve finally got […]

Bioshock Infinite: Clash in the Clouds — Review

Full game review Bioshock Infinite sits firmly in near the top of my “best games ever” list.  It wasn’t perfect, though.  The combat could be clunky/unfair at times.  And how cool would it be to play as Elizabeth?  We’ve been told to expect the latter in a two-part series in due time, but for now we are given the former.  Clash […]

Half Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax — Review

I remember looking through the Xbox Live Arcade titles a while back, trying to find something new to play.  A decidedly Japanese-looking game caught my eye — Half Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax.  What the hell kind of a name even is that?  After reading up on it a bit, I decided to give it a shot.  It’s a […]

Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead — Review

If you haven’t heard of The Walking Dead by now… what the hell is wrong with you?  Between the comics (haven’t started reading them yet), the show on AMC (love it), and the couple of games (including the horrible one), it’s no secret — zombies are where it’s at.  Telltale Games episodic story was, without a doubt, the single most emotional […]

Vanquish — Review

Imagine you’re playing an action/FPS game.  You’ve done the recon, saved the hostages, and found the enemy stronghold.  All that’s left is the final assault.  Vanquish is that final assault — complete with explosions, transforming robots, and bullet time — just not the best one you’ve ever seen.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon – Review

Finally, you can see it – the enemy garrison.  There are armed guards patrolling every path and an energy shield surrounding the base.  You sneak in an unattended door and stab a guard through his heart.  Before he hits the floor, you throw a shuriken at another guard.  You pick off another two silently with your bow and introduce the […]
