Adventurous (but Repetitive) Spelunking 0

Plato’s Allegory, The Cave tells us that people have lived their entire lives in caves that they do not understand, and that it is the philosopher’s job to try to describe it to us. Ron Gilbert’s game, The Cave is a lot simpler, mainly that the titular cave holds something that everyone who enters desires. That object of desire is different for each adventurer, and what they do once they are in the cave affects what fate befalls them. This newest entry from Double Fine, a company best known for ...

Unfinished Thoughts 0

There’s an emotional and poignant throughline in Giant Sparrow’s The Unfinished Swan. Whether this is coping with the loss of a mother, reconnecting with one’s father or an artist’s inability to finish his work, however, is never clear. The first reaction may be to say all three, as was clearly the intention, but the theme and plot in The Unfinished Swan feel incomplete, as do the play mechanics of the game. Perhaps this is the problem with putting the word “unfinished” in a game title. The game...

My thoughts on the Walking Dead video game. 0

If I were to go back to the 14 year old version of myself and tell him that someday there will be a critically acclaimed zombie tv show that I would completely ignore, he would probably call me a liar. It goes to show the proliferation the Zombie sub-genre that someone who once had a zombie related nickname (Rob Zombie) no longer cares about zombies, ghouls and the infected generally. This is why I have never taken the time to check out either The Walking Dead comic book or tv show. I just can’t...

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings 0

CD Projekt RED has brought their acclaimed PC RPG series, The Witcher, based off of the Polish fantasy books from the 1990’s, to the XBox 360 with their latest installment: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. This marks the first time that many gamers will get the chance to meet the titular character Geralt of Rivia, and the game spares little time in getting the player introduced to his world. My gut reaction to the game is to say “It’s like a Bioware game, but...” this would however be a simple...

A Fantastic Journey 0

Even if it’s not the sort of game you’re used to playing, Journey is one of the most impressive games to have come out in recent years. Coming from the controversial hit Flower, a game considered by some critics to not be a game, the video game developer with the strange moniker, thatgamecompany, needed to prove that Journey is actually a real game. What has come from the mind of Jenova Chen is more impressive than anything else currently on the market. To explain the mechanics of the game would...

What's the Word? The Third! 0

Version:1.0 StartHTML:0000000167 EndHTML:0000004837 StartFragment:0000000457 EndFragment:0000004821Saints Row has been a surprisingly interesting game franchise to follow, even though I haven’t spent significant time playing either of the previous Saints Row games. The first game came out at a time when I wasn’t able to buy Mature games at will, and the second was far from the most enticing game to come out in the last quarter of 2008. A sign of the third game’s quality is that I made a point to...

A Singular if Familiar Experience 0

Rocksteady's new “Batman: Arkham City” offers an exciting experience, even if at times it feels slightly familiar. If you're interested in “Batman: Arkham City” and have yet to play it's two-year-old predecessor “Batman: Arkham Asylum” then you should take the time to pick it up and give it a play. At this point the original game is at a price where the barrier of entry, the cost of the game, is low enough that your chances of enjoying it are pretty good. “Arkham Asylum” was a great game, but th...
