Guest Review: Yggdra Union

Written By: Joseph Kee Think of your favorite strategy RPG. How does it differ from other strategy RPGs? Does it do anything different than the others? Does it reinvent the genre? What if you took gameplay elements from strategy RPGs such as Fire Emblem, Advance Wars, or the Disgaea series? Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone does just that and adds something new to the mix. At a glance, Yggdra Union looks like a fusion of Fire Emblem and Advance Wars. Delve deeper into the mechanics, and one will notice […]

Guest Article : EVO Championship 2010

By Mintycrys Since 2002, gamers have flocked to Las Vegas from all corners of the world to participate in the largest fighting game tournament in the country and possibly the world: The EVO Championship Series, or EVO, for short. EVO takes place in mid-July each year and features numerous fighting games based on what is most popular in the fighting game community at the time, having previously included Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Capcom vs. SNK 2, and featuring newer games, such as Super Street Fighter […]

Guest Article: Why We’re Turning Indie

by Brian Vicari (republished with permission from here) Indie games have grown massively in popularity in the past few years. Advances in distribution have played a large role in this trend – services like XBox Live, Steam, and the Playstation Network have given Indie developers the kind of audience they need to showcase their work broadly. But I propose something else is responsible, as well – something that isn’t such a positive development. Indie games are growing in popularity because the video game industry is rapidly adopting and institutionalizing design […]

Guest Article: Video Games Best 13 Characters with Facial Hair

By Bryan Hall Since the beginning, man has desired hair upon their face. No one really knows why, its lost to the sands of time, like the dodo bird and respectability in politicians (zing! Topical). Our video games reflect this, as some of the most famous gaming icons sport various chin straps and nostril decoration. From the simple mustache to elaborate designs both impractical and awesome, it is a trend I hope will never fade. But who among them could claim to have the best, the greatest, the most awe-inspiriting […]

Guest Article: The State of Role Playing Games

By Arionfrost Lately, I have been thinking alot about the state of Role Playing Games, and the people who play them. I feel that we as gamers (I am speaking collectively, you yourself may feel you do not fall into this catagory) are likely the whiny, high-maintanence girlfriend who does everything to make her boyfriend’s life a living hell, yet he sticks with her because he knows where the good sex is. This is the analogy I use to describe the relationship between gamers and the game developer.

Guest Review: Darksiders

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 […]

Guest Impressions: Final Fantasy XIII

By Rachel Fogg :DISCLAIMER-This is simply my humble impression of the JP final build, nothing more or less, things may be altered in the Widerelease of XIII. I don’t know. Game was completed with assistance with my friend.: Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, I recall about a week ago, I said I was going over to a friend’s place to OFFICIALLY play FFXIII. Well, I went, saw and played about…4 hours of the game.

Guest Review: New Super Mario Bros. Wii

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 […]

Guest Article: The Comical Short-sightedness of American (Gaming) Press

By Nipsen So, a while back I read a piece of writing about “The Last Guardian”, because I am a bit interested in that game. And at some point Ueda is asked: but don’t you want to make an fps-game at some point? Like everyone else is? I thought it was strange at the time, but I didn’t think anything of it. Later, I read something about Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker. And naturally, the story-telling was in focus. And I expected to read something about the setting for the game. […]

Guest Article: Star Trek Online Beta Impressions

By Koztah Being one of the lucky many to get into the Star Trek Online open beta, here are a set of first and second impressions. Note – this was first posted as a comment on Kotaku. Seeing as I have played more since, it’s been updated with extra content and screenshots for Press X or Die. You may consider this the Collector’s Edition of my Star Trek Online Beta experience, dear reader. I’ve also corrected a few horribly obvious misspellings since I have nothing better to do. It’s the […]

Guest Review: The Hunter

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 […]
