Magic: The Gathering (abbreviated MTG or Magic) is a long-standing collectible card game by Wizards of the Coast, combining the thrills and risk-taking of poker with the cold harsh strategy and tactics of a solid turn-based strategy game. Over it’s 17-year lifespan it has amassed quite the following and is often credited as popularizing the collectible card game format. Duels of the Planeswalkers is the latest attempt to introduce Magic to the larger gaming community. It is by no means the ultimate package for a Magic player looking for a PC […]
Little more than a year ago, the idea of a new game based upon a franchise that had suffered more than a few stinkers in the gaming world being a critical darling would be scoffed at, but Batman: Arkham Asylum took the gaming world by surprise and showed people that it could be done. War for Cybertron is the Transformer franchises’ Arkham Asylum – and while it is easy to leave the review there and call High Moon studio’s shooter an absolute gem for simply being a sucess, being the […]
After a roaring success with the first episode of the Doctor Who Adventure Games, City of the Daleks – which was download over half a million times within the first 12 days of its release – Sumo Digital turn their hands to another of The Doctor’s most infamous enemies: The Cybermen are back! Does Blood of the Cybermen build on the good groundwork that City of the Daleks created, or should it be deleted as an inferior being?
OnLive, as you guys may or may not know, is the infamous “cloud gaming” service. I, being one of the curious skeptics, decided to sign up for the “free” 1-year access that included everything but the games themselves. Demos let you try the first 30 minutes of all games, so I decided to give Just Cause 2 a whirl.
Heroes of Newerth is a multiplayer-only real-time strategy game developed by independent developer S2 Games for Windows, Mac and Linux. As opposed to traditional real-time strategy games where you control vast armies of units, Heroes of Newerth lets you control one in a constantly growing roster of over 60 heroes and tasks you with working with your team to battle the enemy forces and ultimately destroy their base.
Bizarre Creations latest foray into the racing genre since leaving Project Gotham Racing behind them is an attempt to hybridise two tangents that racing games have split off into: the Kart racing, combat driven gameplay of titles such as Mario Kart and Modnation Racers, with the real world locations and cars of series like PGR and Burnout. But is Blur something of a bizarre mishmash of gameplay styles best left seperated, or is an example of two great tastes that taste great together?
It seems odd to some that just a little over a year after their previous release of Street Fighter IV, (a game many claim single handily brought fighting games into the limelight) Capcom returns with Super Street Fighter IV. An update that promised more characters, stages, and online options. When first announced many gamers were up in arms that the new content would come in the form of a disk, rather than a download for the previous game. Capcom stated early on that “the breath of content to the game […]
Warning: This game, as well as any videos I may link to in this review, are not recommended for people with a history of epileptic seizures. Games that try to integrate your music library into the gameplay are nothing new, with the roots of the idea stretching back all the way to the almost legendary original PlayStation title Vib-Ribbon(1999). Although considered greatly innovative at the time, the concept never really went anywhere and the few games that tried to follow suit almost exclusively faded into obscurity, remembered fondly by the […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
