A Boy and His...Well Just the Boy Actually 1

If I may start of by stating the obvious: Ubisoft Shanghai’s I Am Alive is not for everyone, but it is by no means a bad game. In fact, for the most part, it does what it sets out to do incredibly well. I Am Alive takes place in the city of Haventon after some ambiguous apocalyptic event has left the world as you know it in ruins. Buildings have collapsed, there are huge chasms in the ground, and the streets are choked with a thick dust that not only blocks out sunlight but can also kill you if ...

More Fun than a...I can't do it... 0

  Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is the latest effort from Ninja Theory, developers of Heavenly Sword.   The concept is loosely based on the legend of Sun Wukong, the protagonist in a classical Chinese work entitled Journey to the West.   Though not having read the original, I suspect it contained far fewer giant mechanical dogs.   It’s also not the first game to take advantage of this established mythos, and it likely won’t be the last.   Still, Ninja Theory does an excellent job of ma...

Improvised Stabbing Device 0

  Shank, for anyone who hasn't been keeping up, is an old-school brawler with a distinctive art style.   You really don't see a lot of games like this anymore, especially not at full price because in general, action games have evolved beyond the simple side-scrolling beat 'em up action that you find in a game like this.   But at $15 Shank is a game that has some real potential.   Fans of games like Streets of Rage or Final Fight will know exactly what to expect when loading up Shank for th...

Not Just a Fresh Coat of Paint 19

  Starcraft 2 is a game that’s been a long time coming.   It’s also a game that’s gotten a whole mess of negative sentiment from what I can only hope is the usual vocal minority on the internet who condemn games like this based on some weird bizzaro-world metric for what makes games fun.   That said, let’s go ahead and get those concerns out of the way.   Starcraft 2 is not Starcraft 1 with a shiny new coat of paint.   When you buy Starcraft 2, you are not paying $60 for 1/3 of a game.   If thos...

A Game for Those Who Love Tooltips 4

Yes, that's a thong in the logo. I know momma always said not to judge a book by its cover, but DeathSpank?  Really?  OK, terrible name aside, a big part of what makes DeathSpank DeathSpank is the writing.  There has clearly been a whole lot of time and thought put into every bit of text and voice over in the game.  Ron Gilbert's humor is evident everywhere, and while I personally am not always a huge fan, there's definitely some stuff that made me laugh out loud while I was playing.    Many...

He's Still Angry... 0

The short version of this review is this: GoW3 is more GoW in a prettier dress. They didn't screw it up. Now for the long version (possible spoilers). God of War 3 is exactly what you're expecting it to be. This holds true for every aspect of the game, platforming, combat, puzzling, story, you name it. It opens with an absolutely insane first level with all kinds of crazy set pieces. The sense of scale as you climb mount Olympus, or rather, as you climb all over Gaea while she climbs mount Olym...
