  • Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale Review (PS3)

    0 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on December 28, 2012 under Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Up until now, Nintendo has more or less owned the market on console mascot fighting games with its Super Smash Bros series.  PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is Sony's attempt at throwing its hat into the ring with a fighter of its own that celebrates the history of the PlayStation.  Despite its unnecessarily long winded name, I feel it succeeds at being a worthy entry into this particularly ... more.
  • Assassin’s Creed III Review (PS3)

    I have been sick for a while, so my review of Assassins Creed III is a little late, but as they say, better late than never! Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed franchise is one I have liked since the very beginning.  Despite flaws here or there in gameplay, the overall experiences and scope of the worlds in which you play have always been impressive.  The sci fi element of the story has always been s... more.
  • Dishonored Review (PS3)

    0 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on December 16, 2012 under Featured, PS3 Reviews
    From the very first trailer, Dishonored appealed to me greatly.  The setting and design were just the right combination of dark and bizarre to warrant my attention so I was very much looking forward to playing through this title. In Dishonored, you take control of a former personal bodyguard of the Empress who is framed for her murder and kidnapping of her daughter.  You are freed by a group loy... more.
  • Resident Evil 6 Review (PS3)

    After a little bit of a hiatus , I return, I have a couple of older reviews to catch up on but will hopefully be up to date soon. First, let's start with Resident Evil 6, Capcom's most recent installation in its popular horror series. As I have a tendency to do, allow me to qualify my opinion in saying that I've never been that big of a fan of the Resident Evil series.  I played the original a... more.
  • Borderlands 2 Review (PS3)

    0 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on November 14, 2012 under Featured, PS3 Reviews
    With Borderlands 2, Gearbox Software releases a sequel to its popular FPS RPG that improves in many ways on the original. The original was successful largely due to its stylized look and irreverent sense of humor, and there's much more of the same here. The game opens with a narration explaining what's happened since the original Vault Hunters from the first game opened the vault to reveal the... more.
  • Dead or Alive 5 Review (PS3)

    0 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on October 30, 2012 under Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Dead or Alive 5 sees Team Ninja unleash their porcelain doll characters with sentient flans strapped to their chests, back to the fighting arena. I've only really had two run-ins with the Dead or Alive franchise before now. The first being Dead or Alive 2 Hardcore and the second being a relatively brief session of watching a friend try out Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. The latter of whi... more.
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Review (PS3)

    0 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on October 12, 2012 under Featured, PS3 Reviews
    The Tekken series was the first fighting game franchise that I fell in love with. I had played games like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, etc. before but when I first played Tekken 2 I was instantly hooked on it and have since owned every subsequent game. Not every entry has been stellar but overall I've generally enjoyed each game in the series. That being said, Namco Bandai's latest entry in... more.
  • Darksiders 2 Review (PS3)

    0 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on September 22, 2012 under Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Darksiders 2 is the second installment of Vigil Games action rpg series. The series is based around a unique take on the concept of the four horseman of the apocalypse. In the first game we followed War, who was framed for starting the apocalypse ahead of schedule, and throwing earth into chaos. This recent game happens alongside some of the events from the previous and centers around War's bro... more.
  • Papo & Yo Review (PSN)

    0 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on September 16, 2012 under Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Papo & Yo is a puzzle platforming game available via the PSN that is based around a personal and deep concept. The game is an allegory for how the game's creator, Vander Caballero, felt growing up with an abusive alcoholic father. You play as a young Columbian child traveling through a favela, a Columbian slum of small, tightly arranged shacks. The child moves through these areas by compl... more.
  • Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Review (PS3)

    0 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on September 9, 2012 under Featured, PS3 Reviews
    Transformers is a property that has a very dedicated fanbase. People who view characters like Optimus Prime as childhood heroes have grown up clutching those nostalgic memories tightly. It can be hard adding to such a property, and getting it wrong (such as Michael Bay's movies) can gain the ire of many of its biggest fans . Now I was born mid-late 80's so I didn't really spend much of my chi... more.
