Perfected Driving, Broken Game 0

Kazunori Yamauchi is a bold man, he's the beast of a Mercedes SLS-AMG that no one expected to race onto a track, and like the SLS-AMG...at times it's a complete work of art, while at other times it's a complete broken mess.  He brought that philosophy over to his latest opus, Gran Turismo 5, and like the SLS-AMG it's trapped in a twisted time warp that tries to blend the near futuristic with the sublime past that even shadows no longer roam.     Upon booting up Gran Turismo you'll be required to...

No Excuse For The Incomplete 0

I played Final Fantasy XI for years, I ended up buying the PS2 hard drive and a copy of the PC version so I could always be on, and always have a way to farm.  In FFXI I ended up being Red Mage, Black Mage, White Mage, Summonor, and a bit of the Ninja.  So yes, I am very familiar with Squaresoft’s “focus” on the MMO genre. I paid $79.99 plus 7% sales tax for the collector’s edition of Final Fantasy XIV.  I was excited, I was pumped, and I was worried.  After spending time in the beta, I could al...

I'm Guilty of Enjoyment 0

I do not like social games.  I hate them.  I'm the kind of guy who mutes everyone on XBL, PSN, and Steam...I hate playing with people.  With that said, I love Guilty Party.  It's one of the best social games I have played in years.  Gameplay The game is played on an interactive game board, and can be played with up to four players (on a single Wiimote too!).  Players take turns going around the board looking for clues, while partaking in minigames.  The minigames while nothing too new, are fun a...

A Dull Stunning Shank 0

I bought Shank due to boredom last night, I decided to buy this over Scott Pilgrim and I have mixed feelings about the game.    With first impressions, the game impresses to no end.  The combat is silky smooth, the story (while campy) is decent, the music mellows you out, and the graphics look stunning in high definition.  Shank gave me some of the best hour of gaming in a long time, and for that I give it nothing but praise.    The game however breaks down after the third or fourth boss fight, ...

Starcraft II; or Almost Lightning In A Bottle 0

Few games come along when I feel the urge to review it, hell...this is only the second game I reviewed on Giant Bomb.  Why am I doing a Starcraft II review?  I guess in a sense, I feel this game might just be the best RTS I played since Warcraft III.  There's just layers and layers of depth, and a story that is somewhat compelling.  First, let's talk about the story, or my mixed experience on it.  Starcraft II doesn't have the greatest of plots, I wouldn't even consider it much of a plot, and it...
