Remember about six or seven years ago when music/rhythm games were all the rage? Guitar Hero, Rock Band — who didn’t have fun playing those? Then, remember about three or four years ago when that genre died the quickest death? My peripherals moved with me to my apartment two years ago and have been collecting dust ever since. Square Enix […]
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 […]
Strategy RPGs usually grab a hold of me and don’t let go. One of my most played game has to be Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, where I poured in over 100 hours to beat all 300+ missions. My 3DS has been mostly a dust collector since I got it, to my dismay. Fire Emblem: Awakening helped me break that by […]
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 […]
It’s a dark and stormy night. Your unnamed hero approaches a castle gate and enters. With nothing in the way of direction, you swing your sword and cast your spells, defeating enemies in your path until, eventually, you succumb to the unrelenting wave of evil. Now that you’ve died, the real fun of Rogue Legacy begins.
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 […]
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 […]
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.
After a few week layoff, I’ve got a couple of games to tell you, my vast readership, about. I’ve mentioned before that I love games with good local co-op — there […]
I received my Ouya a little over a week ago and, after the unboxing and setup, was able to play around with it for a bit. Since the games are more like apps in their general gameplay and length, I’ve decided to do a few games per article. Don’t forget: all Ouya games are free to try, but unlock fully […]
If you follow gaming news at all, you’ve probably heard about the Ouya. In case you haven’t, here’s a quick summary — it all started with an innocent Kickstarter campaign. The team wanted to raise $950,000 to build an Android-powered open-source gaming console. That goal was surpassed within days (if not hours) and roughly 8 months later, all of the consoles […]
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 […]
Well, now that I’ve finished up Bioshock Infinite, I’m in a bit of a lull. No new games are really appealing to me so I’m looking through my backlog for stuff I’ve started but not finished. I wanted so, so badly for Diablo 3 to grab me and never let go, especially after playing Diablo 2 so much that I […]
DLC: Clash in the Clouds DLC: Burial at Sea, Part One You may or may not have heard about this little-known indie title that recently came out, Bioshock Infinite. It hasn’t had much publicity and not many people have been … alright, enough of that. Bioshock Infinite is one of the biggest releases in recent memory and, as you may […]
Gears of War will always have a special place in my heart. It’s great co-op, which I’m always looking for, and the epitome of the word bro. As such, I’ve played through every game in the series with my roommate. The fourth installment follows gaming tradition by not simply adding a four to the series title (GTA: Vice City, Halo […]
I’ve never played a Monster Hunter game before (or written anything for a blog, so be nice), but from what I know they completely dominate in Japan. I saw the newest 3DS version and figured I’d give it a go. I’m still doing some of the introductory stuff, but I’ve played for a few hours. First, I’ll go with the […]
