  • Mark of the Ninja Review (XBLA)

    It's amusing to think that, despite how popular a subject for video games they might be, 'Ninja' are rarely shown as stealthy assassins. Games like Ninja Gaiden or the upcoming Metal Gear Revengeance tend to favor 'over the top' action instead of careful sneaking through the shadows. The Tenchu series was probably the last franchise I can think of that tried to focus on ninja being assassins. Fe... more.
  • Dust: An Elysian Tail Review (XBLA)

    0 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on September 1, 2012 under Featured, X360 Reviews
    Dust: an Elysian Tail is an indie title that was released this month on the XBLA for the “Summer Arcade”. It is a 2D side-scroller action RPG much in the same vein as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. This game was mostly created through the efforts of one man, Dean Dodrill. Considering the limitations one could have under such circumstances, it is amazing how wonderful an experience th... more.
  • Sleeping Dogs Review (Xbox 360)

    0 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on August 31, 2012 under Featured, X360 Reviews
    Sleeping Dogs is a GTA-like sandbox game set in Hong Kong that tries to add a bit more depth to the popular formula. The game has you playing as undercover cop, Wei Shen, who had just recently returned to China after several years living in the United states. Despite being an officer of the law you are still given freedom to be a complete sociopath, with little in the way of real consequences. ... more.
  • Risen 2: Dark Waters Review (Xbox 360)

    People have a certain fascination with the glorified pop culture images of rogues throughout history. Whether it be cowboys, mobsters, or pirates, we love the idea of glamor that has been slapped upon these figures in movies and other media. Pirates, however, have thus far never really gotten a game that captured the true essence of everything we want from that kind of game. Certainly nothing lik... more.
  • Mass Effect 3 (Xbox 360 Review)

    0 CommentsPosted by Karin E. Skoog on March 17, 2012 under Featured, X360 Reviews, Xbox 360
    Mass Effect is one of the most highly regarded series in video game history, and with the conclusion making its debut just last week, the internet has been exploding with reactions on the widely anticipated finale. Mass Effect 3 is a game that cannot be done justice through merely writing about the emotional impact and gut wrenchingly intense choices that have gamers raving.  This ethical jour... more.

    Last month Trine 2 was released on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.  It is a wonderful fantasy puzzle platformer with truly phenomenal graphics that have critics raving. After writing an article recently about the incredible reviews for Trine 2, it was time to try the game out for myself, and I’m glad I did! Three characters are united by the Trine and embark upon a challenging journey... more.

    “You can just hang around outside in the sun all day, tossing a ball around, or you can sit at your computer and do something that matters!” said Eric Cartman in the South Park episode, “Make love, not Warcraft.”  Gamers can truly do something that matters for South Park’s future and the future of comedic gaming – you can make the newly announced South Park RPG a true gaming sensation... more.
  • Deadly Premonition Review

    2 CommentsPosted by emma on August 24, 2011 under Featured, X360 Reviews
    I stumbled across a copy of Deadly Premonition while I was looking for something else in my local Game store. I picked up a copy as I was intrigued by the cover and by the fact that I’d never actually heard of it. It’s not often that video games slip past my radar, especially weird Japanese ones, which I particularly enjoy. It came out last October to little fanfare, although it did briefly... more.
  • Brink Review (Xbox 360)

    0 CommentsPosted by Terry Franklin on May 10, 2011 under Featured, X360 Reviews
    Brink is no ordinary, everyday shooter, the whole concept of this action game revolves around some rather dramatic and inventive ideas. The fluid, Mirrors Edge style parkour movement is combined with a unusual player objective mechanic. Brink is formed around the constant battle between The Resistance and The Security, two factions who live on an overpopulated island called The Ark. The game is... more.
  • Mortal Kombat Review (Xbox360)

    1 CommentsPosted by Terry Franklin on May 1, 2011 under Featured, X360 Reviews
    If, like me, you are old enough then you may remember playing Mortal Kombat in the arcades almost 20 years ago. It was a game which attracted the young male audience, because it featured plenty of gore and death moves. The ninth game (yes, count 'em) has just been released and this time, they really are playing hard ball. Ed Boon and his talented team at NetherRealm Studios have really created ... more.
