Chainsaws are awesome. 0

Sony once claimed that the next generation wouldn't begin until they said so; they couldn't have been more wrong. Released shortly before the PlayStation 3 and Wii, Gears of War took the gaming industry by storm and anyone with an Xbox 360 knew that there was no other place to be at the time. Gears of War was the first game that truly let everyone know that the next generation was here, and it was here to stay. Gears of War is a third-person over the shoulder shooter, that follows four absolute...

Get lost in the World of Warcraft. 0

The MMO is a strange beast, and I'm not going to lie; I despise the notion of paying to play games that you already own, and I've boycotted every game that has ever followed this structure. Despite the fact that I've always been a big fan of Blizzard's games, I naturally avoided World of Warcraft for years based on this principal alone. In December 2007 I had finally been convinced to see for myself what all the fuss was about, and I've been playing off and on ever since. So what exactly is it ...

Slightly brain-dead. 0

When you break Left 4 Dead down to its core components it's a relatively basic game; you grab some items, run through a level shooting countless common infected, fight a few special infected, and eventually seek shelter at the next safe house ad nauseam. Left 4 Dead has a bare bones selection of weapons and items at your disposal, so playing it by yourself gets very old, very quickly. Fortunately Left 4 Dead has an exceptionally well-realized cast of playable characters and a fantastic online co...

This soul doesn't burn so brightly anymore. 0

With the recent fighting game revival taking place during 2008 it's no surprise that Namco saw it fit to re-release the game that sent the Soul series to super stardom on a modern day console. Despite the odd numerical scheme, Soulcalibur is actually the second game in the series. Following Soul Blade for the PlayStation 1, and complete with name change and a significant roster update, Soulcalibur took the the Dreamcast by storm. The original Soulcalibur is arguably the reason why the series is ...

Castlevania: The Impossible X Chronicles. 0

Games as challenging as Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles are a rarity these days. In the current state of gaming we are generally treated to a lot of things we take for granted such as recharging health, plenty of checkpoints, and often the ability to save our progress whenever we need. The Dracula X Chronicles does not share any of these ideologies and instead takes us back to the days when games were absolutely punishing and masochistic. If you're already a seasoned Castlevania veteran t...

Tour of duty number five. 0

It would be hard to immediately identify something as a World War II game with the absence of Nazis. In fact, the absence of Nazis is what potentially could have led Treyarch's latest iteration of the Call of Duty franchise from feeling like just another World War II game.Call of Duty: World at War consists of two main components: an American campaign that retells the invasion of Okinawa, and yep, you guessed it: a Russian campaign that deals with the Russians pushing the Nazis out of the mother...

A leap of faith worth taking. 0

Mirror's Edge is an incredibly unique experience that is extremely important in the age of an extremely over-saturate game market. We're constantly being flooded by the same types of games and an endless stream of sequels that rarely do anything new. That's not to say any of these games are bad, but they drown out innovation by constantly playing it safe - as well as wearing out their welcome. Games like Mirror's Edge don't come around very often, and when they do we'd be best not to ignore them...

A great game that ultimately feels like a missed opportunity. 0

PlayStation 3 or not, we've all been following Killzone 2 with eager eyes for a long, long time. Would Killzone 2 finally be that killer first person shooter that Sony so desired? Would it be that game that finally drew the Xbox shooter crowd over to the PlayStation? The answer is more complex than a simple yes or no, but let it be known that Killzone 2 is a great game, and it will undoubtedly give anyone who picks up a PlayStation 3 controller a highly enjoyable experience. It has most of the i...

Infuriatingly difficult, but incredibly intense and addictive. 0

I'm not going to lie to you; Rainbow Six Vegas is an infuriatingly difficult game. Difficult to the point that if you're a controller thrower, expect to have launched your Xbox 360 controller across the room at least a dozen times before the game is over. No matter, there WILL be moments of Rainbow Six Vegas-induced rage if you play this game. This is an indisputable fact, whether you are one who frequently rages while playing video games or not. So what's so great about a game that's difficult...

Turtles in Time RS is fun, but it's not the remake you wanted. 0

  There's no doubt that anyone who has played Turtles in Time looks back on that game with fond memories and warm nostalgia. Truly, Turtles in Time is a masterpiece of its era, and is easily one of the greatest games of all time. So what exactly is the issue with this modern day remake of this highly regarded beat 'em up? First and foremost, Turtles in Time Re-Shelled is a remake of the arcade version of Turtles in Time, which is significantly different than the SNES version - which is the vers...

A film-noir style mystery with excellent writing and characters. 0

If you're even reading about Hotel Dusk then there's probably a good chance that you're at least a little bit familiar with what Hotel Dusk actually is. It's worth noting that Hotel Dusk is not so much a game as it is a novel; think of it as an interactive book. With that in mind, Hotel Dusk is definitely geared towards a specific audience, and is definitely not for everyone. Hotel Dusk is essentially a combination of a mystery novel, an old-school point and click PC adventure game, and a distin...

An euphoria-inducing thrill ride of intense and amazing moments. 0

If there is anything that pretty much everyone already knows about Crysis it's that the game is freaking beautiful. There is no doubt in my mind that Crysis is easily one of the best looking games ever created. This creates a bit of a problem though. Is Crysis simply a pretty tech demo or is there a hidden gem of a game behind all of that eye candy? The answer to this question is an astounding yes; Crysis is an outstanding first-person shooter experience that almost feels like a high profile Hol...

Mind-blowing A.I., and an absolutely chilling atmosphere. 0

It's difficult to know where to begin with my experience of playing through F.E.A.R. In fact, I've spent the last ten minutes re-writing this first paragraph over and over again simply trying to think of a way to begin talking about the game, so let's just get down the basics. F.E.A.R. puts you in the role of an unnamed operative of the First Encounter Assault Recon team, known only as the F.E.A.R. point man, as you track down the rogue commander Paxton Fettel and deal with his army of telepathi...
