Final Fantasy XIII has been one of the most anticipated titles in recent years, having been announced at E3 2006, it has been a long wait but it’s almost at an end for most of us. Warning: This review contains some story info, not really spoilers but if you don’t want to know anything about the game, I suggest you don’t read it.
Go to Hell, That was how EA and Visceral Games marketed this game and they were not joking. Dante’s Inferno is a new Action Game That will be released on the 9th and before you read on, let me say that this game is not for the faint of heart. This is HELL we are talking about, Sinners’ and the Damned rule this place! This game features many graphic images that if your not prepared for may throw you for a loop. You will see Breasts, Gore, Even the Male Genetailia :P.
Bioshock for many gamers is one of the most beloved new franchises on the block. It’s unique art style and setting encased gamers in an alternate world where an 1940’s “Utopia” was birthed under the seas. Bioshock 2 begins in the beloved city of Rapture that we all came to love in the first game. This time though you are truly taking up the reigns of a Big Daddy the Series protectors of what little innocence exists in Rapture; the Little Sisters. More specifically, you are Delta the original Big […]
by Darrin Wright Darksiders is a game that could possibly be one of the best games to slip under your radar. Vigil Games and THQ teamed up to bring us a game about the apocalypse; that is, if the apocalypse felt a lot like a combination of the Legend of Zelda and God of War. In the game you play as War, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and that’s all I’m going to say about the story, except something happens that War gets framed for and spends […]
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle is the sequel to a game no one expected to see (even the original joked it would never happen) is finally here and it is a non-stop over the top celebration of what it is to be a game. No other game in recent memory has just enjoyed its own style and humor more than No More Heroes. How does it do this? Just how crazy do things get? How about a dozen or so cheerleaders flying into space, combining a huge mech and […]
By Darrin Wright When I say “Mario,” what do you think of? Chubby guy, overalls, 2-D platforming, right? Well, that’s pretty much this game, plus three other people on-screen at the same time. Nintendo decided to go back to the nostalgia well with New Super Mario Bros. Wii, which is the first 2D Mario game released to consoles since… well, the Super Nintendo days. In the game, you take Mario, Luigi, and two versions of Toad (a blue Toad and a yellow one) on a quest to save Princess Peach […]
The title that has been teased for a over 2 years now is finally released and it ushers in a new standard for 3D action games so much so that games following in its wake will be hard pressed to surpass. Bayonetta is helmed by director Hideki Kamiya who’s previous works include Resident Evil 2, Viewtiful Joe, Okami & Devil May Cry and PlatinumGames/Sega. The latter being the jumping off point that got this whole 3D action game thing started. It’s in that regard that Bayonetta feels like the same […]
By Neostarr Recently, I’d been craving a solid hunting experience that I can play from my living room. Finding one turned out to be a much more difficult task than I originally envisioned. Since the rather simplistic gameplay of the original 1997 Deer Hunter game unexpectedly became a best seller, the actual gameplay of hunting games has evolved quite slowly with many of them becoming bargain titles and cash grabs (it would be years before the games even allowed you to move around in the first person perspective). On top […]
PixelJunk Shooter is the fourth game in the PlayStation Store exclusive series from Q-Games and despite it’s name is anything but a shooter. Before the game was released a contest was held for fans to come up with a name. Shooter ended up winning but doesn’t really describe the game. Although at first glance it may look like a classic twin stick shooter it’s actually much more then that. Perhaps PixelJunk Fluid Dynamics would be a more appropriate name, but that doesn’t flow off the tongue quite as well, no pun intended.
Trine is a fantasy-themed, physics-based puzzle-platformer developed by the relatively young and unknown studio Frozenbyte, earlier having developed the relatively unpopular Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds Survivor. As of recent years there has been a lack of solid 2D platformers, with bald space marines conquering the sales charts on consoles and MMOs almost single-handedly keeping PC gaming afloat between the big hits. Trine steps up and fills this void beautifully with it’s absolutely beautiful visuals and a mix of action, physics-based puzzles, platforming and some light RPG and exploration elements.
