Why are you reading this and not playing Mortal Kombat. 0

Mortal Kombat is a franchise that I feel lost it's way somewhere around Deadly Alliance. While always being known for its high amount of blood and gore, it went from a 2D to a 3D format and the changes it brought to the fighting weren't really favored by that many. In the scope of fighting games, I felt it was the franchise that was always on the edge of becoming popular yet never could achieve a level of popularity like Street Fighter. What I cannot deny however is that Mortal Kombat probably h...

Intrigue, Murder, and don't forget the Fighting. 0

Yakuza 3 was probably my unexpected gem of games in 2010. I was pleasantly surprised at how they thought of new players and were able to get them on track by recapping the story in the main menu. It also had some pretty deliberate and slow pacing going on which might turn away some of the more instant-action seeking crowd, but if you gave it a chance the story was very satisfying and the characters were interesting. But does Yakuza 4 do any of this better or worse?Well, to be fair a lot of it di...

An Absolutely Fantastic Experience. 0

If you're a PC player who uses Steam, then it was incredibly hard to miss all the excitement around the Potato Sack and ARG Valve came up with to promote this game. Over the course of weeks players found hidden clues in other games, digging around in various related files and all that. But we're not here to talk about Valve, let's talk Portal 2.Portal 2, as the name would imply, takes place a long time after the events of Portal 1. You once again are controlling Chell, the human test subject fro...

Take your Fighting into the Streets. 0

If some of you read my somewhat terribad review of Marvel VS Capcom 3, then you might remember I mentioned that I hadn’t picked up Super Street Fighter 4 when it came around. I’ll just cut the story short and get to the point: I ended up getting SSF4 on my 3DS yo.  And then I noticed it was one of the better games in the 3DS’ mediocre launch line-up. The foremost reason I’m saying is because the game takes advantage of every new feature in the 3DS – I’ve actually had better matches online then s...

A veritable tempest of projectiles. 0

I was initially quite skeptical about Bulletstorm, I was intrigued by the concept of Skillshots but my main concern was if it would be varied enough to last me a long time without getting tedious. And I'm more then happy to report that this answer is "YES." StoryYou're playing the role of Grayson Hunt, an ex-member of Dead Echo, a squad of highly trained soldiers, which were also used for assassinations. After killing your latest target, one of your squadmembers finds out that all the targets yo...

Marvelous, but overwhelming 0

Marvel VS Capcom fans have been waiting for this game for 10 years, and will be immediately familiar with all of its systems and feel right at home. But what about the newcomers such as myself?  The last time I touched a fighting game was a year (Maybe two?) back at original SFIV, and my god being used to Street Fighter pace did NOT help. If you are completely new to this series or don't know what the fighting system is like, you'll have to go into the Training mode and basically just get a feel...

Epileptics be warned. 0

My previous encounters with Pac-Man were a long time ago, and I decided to get this since I had a case of Pac-Fever.  I did not regret it.  There's not actually alot to say about Pacman:CE DX. There's a ton of different mazes to play in, different visual styles, and even a couple of different game modes such as: Ghost Hunt: where your only goal is to get as much ghosts as you can in one Power Pellet chain (My current record is 99)Score Attack: 5/10 Minutes of score attack, nothing specialTime Tr...

Nothing innovative, but still a great shooter. 0

Lets be fair here, the Call of Duty series is long past introductions, as practically everyone who knows about games, knows about this series. Black Ops is the next itteration in the series created by Treyarch, who were also the creators of CoD: World at War.  The game begins with Alex Mason, Frank Woods, and Joseph Bowman attempting to assassinate none other then Fidel Castro during the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba as a part of Operation 40 .  Mason apparently succeeds in the assassination, ...

Trouble in the land of Albion 0

I really wanted to like Fable 3, I really did. As much as I liked Fable 1 and even liked alot of Fable 2, I couldn't bring myself to bring up the same amount of liking towards this game for a couple of reasons.  But I should say that not everything about this game put me off:  First of all I should say the writing and voice-acting along with the music are excellent. The dialogue is funny, the writing is good and it all sounds very authentic. And who doesn't like John Cleese voicing their butler!...

What happens in Vegas... 0

ForewordLet us get one thing straight here: I never played Fallout 1 or 2, although I've been told that this game is connected to them. While not getting alot of the references I probably missed due to this, I'm still enjoying New Vegas a great amount. Fallout: New Vegas is a Post-Apocalyptic RPG developed by Obsidian Entertainment (of Alpha Protocol fame) which is set in the mid-22nd century, with an alternate history where technology, politics and culture all followed different paths.We find...

Chuck didn't cover wars, but he did cover stuff in duct tape. 0

 Dead Rising 2 is the sequel to the generally well-received Dead Rising, which was generally well-received, but there were some general complaints:- The survivor AI was rather bad, they didnt fend for themselves which made escorting them a hassle.- There were guns in the game, but since you couldnt move while shooting it made the experience end poorly when doing it in crowded areas or bossfights. - Save points were far and between which made dying rather frustrating and if you didnt own an HDTV ...

A very pleasant surprise indeed. 0

I will be honest, I didn't really pay any attention to the Yakuza series up until this third installment, and the only reason I decided to check this game out was because of the Giantbomb quick look. And I don't regret my purchase one tiny bit.  The StoryYakuza 3 revolves around the story of Kazuma Kiryu, a now ex-yakuza who opened an orphanage on the sunny beaches of Okinawa. However, political and criminal intrigue ensues and thus Kazuma has no choice but to get dragged back into the dealings ...

The anticipated installment in the ironically named franchise. 0

 The long-anticipated installment in the Final Fantasy franchise lets go of some of the more trusty aspects of the franchise in favor of more linear storytelling, and a more fastpaced combat system.    Most of the problems people seem to have with the game is the fact that its about as linear as a straight line tetris block. Whereas the old Final Fantasy had at least an open world filled with cities to go to, and hidden locations to explore, Final Fantasy XIII favors a set route for your ...
