Kingdoms of Amalur Review 0

Kingdoms of Amalur is the first big game out the the studio founded by Red Sox Pitching Ace, Curt Schilling. It also employed the artistic skills of Todd McFarlane, and the storytelling power of R.A. Salvatore. You will take on the roll of a character who has already died, and yet somehow was able to return to life thanks to a device called the Well of Souls. You will not be able to remember your previous life, but you will have an advantage to all that live within the realms, you are outside of...

Journey Review 0

Journey is the latest release from ThatGameCompany. In this one you are a nomad clothed in a red hooded robe. You must journey through the desert, and other locations to reach the peak of a sacred mountain. You'll have to do this without any written queues. What lies high above? Well only those strong enough will find out.Graphically this game yet again blows me away. It's not that its hyper realistic, but there's something about this game that makes you sigh, and feel so comfortable about movin...

WARP Review 0

WARP is an XBLA title in which you play an alien named Zero. You've been captured by humans and they are trying to run tests on you, another a number of other aliens. You have to not only escape but find what you've lost, and rescue another alien that seems to be able to talk directly in your mind. The humans won't make it easy though as they will try to gun you down on sight. If they can't control you they will destroy you.Graphically you can see that the Unreal engine is used rather nicely. Yo...

FEZ Review 0

FEZ is the long awaited, award winning, game from Phil Fish, and Polytron Corporation. In the game you'll be playing the roll of Gomez, a citizen of the village who takes on the most important task there is. Once you meet with the elder with the eye patch, that's when the real adventure begins. This game blends 2D with 3D in such a way that I couldn't put down the controller until I played all the way through it.The graphics are done in an 8 bit style to give you that nostalgia effect, and that ...

Mass Effect 3 Review 0

I have been both dreading, and dying to play the final chapter in the Shepard saga that has been part of Mass Effect. I've played through the first and second game, loving the fact that my saves have sculpted my experience into something probably unique to most. It is finally the time to take on the Reapers, and try to save not only Earth, but the very galaxy's existence. You'll get to meet old friends, and make some new ones. There's a lot of game here to explore, if you want to, or you can fin...

RAGE Review 0

It took me a bit of time to finally get this game in my XBOX 360, but when I finally got it in I was excited. This was going to be an adventure that would bring me back to the old school id games, in the new generation. You will be putting on the personal of an Ark specialist, a person who was put into a hibernation chamber for the coming apocalypse and who is just now waking up to a whole new world. You'll find a world full of bandits and an organization with an agenda, the Authority.Graphicall...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review 0

This has to be one of the more complete Zelda games I've ever played. You're going to start in a city named Skyloft, a city somehow suspended above to clouds, the ground has long since be forgotten. You'll enter in on the day of the Festival of the Goddess, and of course Zelda is the main star. Well something happens and Zelda gets sucked down to the world below, and this is where the journey begins. You'll have to traverse several different areas, defeat several types of enemies, and collect it...

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review 0

This was probably one of the most anticipated games of the year for me, and I have to say that having put so much time into it, and planning on putting more time to seek out random dungeons that this game not only had me from start to finish, but left me wanting more. In the game you start off as a captive of the Imperials, this is going to be your execution day, but something happens. A Dragon attacks and all hell breaks loose. Somehow you're going to have to manage to fight your way out, and o...

Kinect Sports: Season Two Review 0

Microsoft has come out with a sequel to their sports game to show off the Kinect. In this game you'll get to play Football, Golf, Darts, Skiing, Baseball, and Tennis. As you play the different games you're going to be able to unlock difficulties to increase the experience and also the challenge.Graphically this game looks exactly like the first, with the exception of the change in sporting equipment. Everything was clearly done, and the informational videos told you exactly what you need to know...

Super Mario 3D Land Review 0

Mario is back in his old school style, and his desire to rescue the Princess from the clutches of Bowser. You will have to fight your way through levels upon levels that will have you remembering the good old days of Super Mario World 3, except this time it's in 3D and there's a little extra depth to the actual levels.Graphically this is the first game that I really liked in 3D, so I left the 3D ability on the 3DS while I played through almost all the levels. There is some serious variety in the...

NBA 2K12 Review 0

It is yet another season for basketball, and for fans out there this game went from a simulation of the real thing to a simulation of a fantasy. With the NBA lock out still going at the time of this review this game, in my mind, should be noted as strictly a fantasy. The selling point of this game was the different covers that could be found for it. You have Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and my favorite, Larry Bird. The unfortunate thing is that this is truly the highlight of the game.Graphical...

professor layton and the last specter review 0

The next game from the popular puzzle solving series has come out and it is time to review it. This game actually takes a step back in time. When the game starts you will find that Layton is without Luke, and without an assistant, period. That changes quickly, but it is not Luke that you'll find by your side. Have no fear though Luke is in the game, and you will get a chance to see how Luke and Layton's relationship came to be. In the this game Layton receives a mysterious letter from an old fri...

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Review 0

The new Uncharted has come out and you'll get to see some of your favorite characters. You'll get to play as Nathan Drake, treasure hunter, and all around finder of trouble. This adventure will actually have you reliving a little of your past, and also why you even got into the treasure hunting game. Once again you'll have to scale walls, figure out puzzles, and try not to die to get to the ultimate discovery for your character. That of course is what happened to Sir Francis Drake during his tra...

Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors Review 0

In this game for the DS you're going to play the part of Junpei a youngster who gets attacked and finds himself trapped on a boat along with eight other people. Each of these people have a story to tell, and you'll get to hear all about it through the game. Each character will have a bracelet attached to them with a corresponding number. You're going to need to use the numbers in combinations of 3 or 5 to unlock doors within the game. You'll also only have nine game hours (not actual playing tim...

Scribblenauts Remix Review 0

5th Cell has decided that their very popular words game, Scribblenauts, needed to be on more than just the DS. So the decision was made to re-vamp the game, give it 50 levels and put it on the iPad. You will once again be taking on your favorite character as always, and will have to use your dictionary in your brain to come up with creative solutions to solve puzzles.Graphically this looks as good if not better than the DS, simply because of the increase in screen size. Even with the increase in...

Killzone 3 Review 0

You will once again find yourself facing off against the Helghast. This game literally starts where the second game left off. You have killed the man in power, but now you have to see your men safely back. The problem is that nothing is easy, and you'll have to fight your way across a portion of the planet to try to escape. The strange thing is that there is something behind the scenes going on that could possibly destroy everyone.Graphically this game shows off what the PlayStation 3 can do. Th...

BulletStorm Review 0

I got the chance to play this game's demo and felt completely overwhelmed by all the stuff that I felt you needed to do, but I decided to give the full game a chance just to see if I would have the same experience. Thankfully I did not have the same experience and I actual got into the game. In the game you will be playing as the character, Gray, a super soldier who goes rogue with the rest of his group. Several years after going rogue he sees the chance to take down the man who sent them on all...

NCAA Football 12 Review 0

It is another year and EA has pumped out another, updated version, of their game NCAA Football. In this one you'll of course expect to have superior play from last year, and of course the updated rosters for all the teams. There will of course be the online play, dynasty mode, mascot match-up, and Road to Glory mode for you to play around with.Graphically this game is on par with all the previous titles, and you can easily see that the game's developers still don't give a hoot about the crowd as...

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review 0

The Deus Ex franchise finally reappears and it is time to take on the mantle of Jansen, an ex-cop, now security for Sarif Industries. It all starts one night when you are about to escort a scientist, and love interest to go talk of the discovery that she thinks will revolutionize augmentations in humans. That's when it goes all wrong and the building comes under attack. You have to fight your way through to try to rescue not only that scientist but many others before it is too late. Not to give ...

The Gunstringer Review 0

The Gunstringer is a Kinect game created by Twisted Pixel. In the game you play an outlaw who was double crossed and comes back from the dead to seek vengeance upon those who betrayed him. Well at least that's what the puppet show is about as you are a marionette. You will be controlling your directional movement with your left hand and trying to squeeze off your shots with your six-shooter in your right. Now of course there is a left-handed mode, so at least this company remembered that the wor...

Gears of War 3 Review 0

The final chapter has been written, and it is time to once again battle the Locust with Dom, Marcus, and others. Will this finally bring an end to the war, or will humanity fad into the past? Only you will be able to determine that. There is also the very important question of a certain bloodline that seems to meet misfortune at every turn in the series, will this Carmine actually see himself live through the game?Graphically this game looks stunning. I had a chance to play around with some of t...

Puzzle Agent 2 Review 0

It is time once again to step into the shoes of the FBI's best puzzle solver, Nelson Tethers. For those of you who haven't played the first game, I'm sorry but I have to divulge some secrets. This game starts up where the last one left off. You have returned from Scoggins and find that even though you solved the case of the eraser factory, you are left unsatisfied. There was so much more left unexplained, and the puzzle solver in you screams to be able to put the missing pieces that were left mi...

Bastion Review 0

I got to see this very game at PAX East this year and immediately though, now that's something I haven't seen, and I want to play it. Well the time has finally come for this game to join the ranks of the XBOX 360's Summer of Arcade. In this game you will be playing the part of a kid who wakes up to find that everything he knows is now in ruins. He'll have to search what he calls home for some answers, and when he finally just starts finding things out its off to the real adventure. Soon you'll f...

Dungeons of Dredmor Review 0

Dungeons of Dredmor has this almost old school RPG feel to it. You're placed within a randomly generated dungeon and your mission is to buff up your character as well as defeat the ancient evil that has somehow broken the bonds that hold him. You'll have to go through several different types of monsters, survive traps, and learn how to best use what you have at your disposal. If you can do that then perhaps you can save everyone.Graphically you are not going to be blown away by this game, but in...

Catherine Review 0

In the game Catherine you get to act out a very dark and twisted soap opera of sorts. You will be playing the part of Vincent a man scared of commitment and yet in a long term relationship with a girl named Katherine. It isn't until Katherine starts pushing that the story begins, along with the nightmares. Soon after the discussion of marriage starts to heavily weigh into the conversation Vincent meets a beautiful blond at his favorite watering hole, the Stray Sheep. This is where the real fun b...

Duke Nukem Forever Review 0

Let me start off by saying that this is one of those games that had been in development for so long that no one was quite sure what would happen. This game also went into a momentary state of being thought dead as 3d Realms ran out of money. It was through the brave move of Gearbox that this game came into being.In this game you will be playing the part of Duke Nukem, your super badass, monster ass kicking, roid raging hero stuck in the nineties. To be fair though this game should have come out ...

The Dishwasher Vampire Smile Review 0

The Dishwasher Vampire Smile is from Ska Studios and is the follow up to The Dishwasher for the XBOX Live Arcade. In this version of the game you'll get to choose between the Dishwasher and the Prisoner (Yuki). You'll get to take out your revenge utilizing one of these characters for what has truly happened to the world. You'll be running through very mute looking environments that are just begging to be redecorated with those who will fall.Graphically at first you'll think that there wasn't muc...

Beyond Good and Evil Review 0

Beyond Good & Evil came out for the last generation of consoles (Gamecube, PS2, and XBOX), but because of its underground success Ubisoft was willing to update the graphics a smidgen and throw it back to the public on at least the XBOX Live Arcade Marketplace. You will be playing the role of Jade, an innocent person who gets thrusted into the role of a secret agent.Graphically you can see that the world and character models came from the XBOX, but at least it looks like there was a bit of po...

Pilotwings Resort Review 0

In a long needed return the Pilotwings franchise finds its way on to the new Nintendo 3DS. In this game you'll be be utilizing jetpacks, planes, and even a hang glider to complete several different assignments. You'll get to fly all over the island to do so, and there's even a couple of hidden secrets for those willing to go find them.Graphically this game is on par with Wii graphics. It basically looks like they took Wii Sports Resort and removed those games and basically allowed for fly-overs ...

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Review 0

Marvel vs. Capcom is one of those cross over fighting franchises that make certain gamers salivate. You will have your choice of 3 characters to go up against another team of 3 characters. If you can master the moves, as well as master when to bring a different character in, you could find yourself a champion. Now as with most fighting games, there's not a whole lot to the story portion of the game. Yes, Galactus is trying to consume your world, and you're going to need to defeat all the fighter...

BioShock 2 Review 0

I literally played BioShock and BioShock back to back so my experience in Rapture was both fresh in my mind and confusing. In BioShock 2 you are one of the first Big Daddys named Delta. You have awoken from your slumber on a mission to find the little sister that you were paired with. You'll have to go all through Rapture to find her, but you'll have to try to stop the minions of Sophia Lamb, a person who was apparently still running things in Rapture after Atlas and Andrew Ryan met their bitter...

BioShock Review 0

BioShock is one of those games that definitely leaves you both wanting more and at the same time complete exhaustion. In this game you are an unexpecting passenger of an aircraft that crashes inot the middle of the ocean. Somehow you survive the crash and float to the top. You don't seem to spot any suriviors but there does seem to be some strange tower in the middle of the ocean. You swim to it thinking that at least you'll be able to wait rescue not having to tread water. You discover a door, ...

Risk FACTIONS review 0

Remember that boardgame of world domination where you have to amass units and try to take out your opponents with strategic planning and a slow but steady pace plan of attack? Well there's a new twist on the XBOX Live Arcade. In the game Risk: Factions you'll be given the chance to play a mode that takes slightly less time, well a good chunk less. You'll be able to choose one of five "races" the cats, humans, yetis, zombies, and robots. I would love to say that each has its advantages and disadv...

DC Universe Online Review 0

DC Universe Online is a MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online Game) for the PC (and soon the PlayStation 3), in which you get to create your own Super hero, or villain and take on many of the different famous locales in DC comics. You will be divided into either the hero faction or the villain faction. You'll get to see one another on the battle field of PvP battles. Graphically you can easily see that they wanted to go with a comic book style type of game. Your character creator has its ups and downs...
