Everyone should try this side scroller! 0

 The Good – It’s a side scrolling game, in which you’re a little boy looking for your sister in the woods…..but only in the beginning. What follows are a countless series of puzzles to get through to the end. No two are the same, it gets very challenging, but it’s never impossible. I didn’t even have to look up anything online It’s somewhat reminicent of Braid, another downloadable game that I freakin’ loved. But that’s where the comparison stops, for the most part, there’s no time bend...

It’s basically GTA set in the old west. 0

The Good – Having written some impressions on this awhile back, I hope you guys don’t mind me repeating some stuff(aka copy-paste). It’s basically GTA set in the old west. Here we have a  living breathing world, walk around the town and you get to see all the stuff that used to go down back in those days. From the cool, to the mundane. It follows the typical mission structure, instead of cars, you ride horses though(durr). And a ton of mini games that just drapes you in it’s atmos...

Different is sometimes good? 0

This be the long awaited PS3 exclusive from developer Quantic Dream. The follow up to their awesome Indigo Prophecy(Fahrenheit in the UK), this follows a much different story. One that I enjoyed immensely, 8/10. The Good – Something…different. This isn’t your traditional game, in fact, I think it’s hard to explain the gameplay and make it sound exciting. That’s because the actual gameplay isn’t, it’s the story, the situations, the conflicts that your characters run into that make it ...

It is time for you to satisfy your inner rage. (nerd) 0

Finally, the long awaited end to the trilogy is here….how’s it hold up for me? 10/10….yeah I said it, deal with it. The Good – Let me get this outta the way right now, no, this game is not perfect, nor is any game. The problem is, a lot of cats assume a 10 means just that, to them, I say grow up. Since no game is perfect, then what’s the point of the 10 score? I’m going go with how great I thought my experience was, however flawed it can be. Continuing the Greek mythology themed sto...

Good game to try out but nothing groundbreaking (anymore) 0

 Nothing new to see here, move along. It’s boring mmo talk which no one with a “cool” social life really wants to talk about anyways. I’m talking about Warhammer Online developed by Mythic. I mention Mythic because nerdboys tend to have developer hate. I’m included in that statement. Anyhow, I found out about this game a long long ways ago because of everyone’s constant complaining about “wow is too ez” and theres this shiny new game that BE A WOW KILLER. Of course the curious cat in me d...

30 stars in and kickin'nass! 0

 I was only gonna throw up an impressions of this. But at 30+ stars in, I think I’ve spent enough time on it to decide if it’s worth owning and therefore giving it a score. Heck, I’ve never finished Galaxy 1, but once I got my initial cluster of stars, I slowed down and only play once in a blue. I’m only at 51 stars in pt.1 and still love it as much as the day I picked it up. Galaxy deuce gets a 9/10 from me. The Good – Everything you loved about Galaxy 1, is back and in most cases,...

Great first impression then we just couldnt deal with it.. 0

Ahhh inFAMOUS…one of the PS3 exclusives of ‘09…this is a weird one for me. It created a so-so first impression which built up into a great time…then to a game I couldn’t deal with anymore. Sittin pretty with an 85 on the metacritic, this was a bit of a critical darling, not for me though….I’m a go with a 5/10. The Good – Original super hero style story that’s not based on a previous comic book for a change. You’re struck by a nuclear blast of sorts then start gaining some serious electrical pow...

Finally, a new hat in the music game genre. Results are good! 0

 Finally, a new hat in the music game genre. Results are generally good, if not difficult, but hey....I couldn't play Guitar Hero at first either, now I can do consistent 5's on hard mode. Anyways, some thoughts on whether or not this fulfills my childhood fantasy of being a DJ :-p It's available on the Xbox360, PS3, PS2 and the Wii. This gets an 8/10 from me. The Good - DJ music game that comes with a turntable controller. If you're familiar with Guitar Hero/Rock Band, some things will be a bit...

Reimaging without doing anything, a truely forgetable experience. 0

 Yeah I just attempted to do "for the wii" and put into "make me sickey". It didn't really look as great as it sounds in my head but I'm going to roll with it anyways. Flat out. This game sucks in every way imaginable. It attempts to do "new" things without doing (what little is new) well. Re Imagining is not new.For me, next to Hellgate London this game ranks as one of the WORST games I've ever played. Good: This is my first review where I will put nothing. There is no good.Bad: This game is al...

Looking forward to this Wii “re imagining” for so long pains me 0

 Anybody familiar with us knows that I’m a Silent Hill geek of epic proportions. Looking forward to this Wii “re imagining” for so long….pains me…for I just did not love this game. It’s out on Wii now, and soon will be on the PS2 and PSP. My rating, a disheartening 6/10. The Good – I would’ve given this game a number score lower, but it’s twist ending I felt, was really cool. Okay, first off, the graphics, look really nice for a Wii game. I’m simply not used to high quality textures on wii, but ...

Ubisoft gets it right this time around! 0

 Ubisoft gets it right, here's for my review of one of my favorite crack addictive games of the year. Available for the Xbox360, PS3, and sometime next spring for the PC. I give this game a well deserved 9/10. The Good - So Ubisoft took what was a solid engine built to be the first title and made a real game out of it. What ever do I mean? Well, part 1 had a fairly nice graphics engine, cool premise, huge open world, and probably one of the best climbing mechanics I've seen in a game. Problem? T...

You'll laugh and have fun at the same time. What a odd concept. 0

I  found out about this game based purely on hype. Sure we've spoken about this on the podcast but alas my memory is not like the old days. I'm glad the hype machine worked on this one. Now  I cant recant to you the process why this game was developed in the manner it was or what game was the most influential one before that one but...I can tell you I had a lot of fun playing this. Not only just with gameplay but also laughing which very very very rarely happens while playing a video game. So..e...

Uncharted was a good release and amazing with the second! 0

Man, the PS3 has been on a roll this year with it’s exclusives and Uncharted 2 is no exception. Read on for some thoughts on one of my favorite gaming experiences of the year. 9/10 The Good – Please excuse me if I happen to repeat certain things from my review of the first game. But what was good there returns and is even better this time around. The Indiana Jones style adventure is back and even more exciting and multi-layered than before. Once again we have a third person action game with plat...

One of my all time favorite first person shooters EVER 0

In a bit of bass ackwardsness, here’s my review to the 2nd expansion pack to Half-Life 2. One of my all time favorite first person shooters EVER. Why this one first? I just played through it for a 2nd time last week so it’s fresh in my mind. The first time was when it was released 2yrs. ago on the Xbox360, then last week on my fairly equipped PC. I’m gonna go ahead and give this one a 10, that’s right, I went there Somewhere down the line I may review Half-Life 2 and the it’s first expansion Ep...

Dont Pay for this if you dont play lots of Co-Op. 0

 Left 4 Dead is a zombie survivor story. You are given 4 seperate places to escape the zombie invasion along with 3 other NPC’s. You can have the option to play locally 4 player, online co-0p or by yourself with the computer playing the other 3. Good: The game is straight forward in it strategy. Point, shoot and watch the aftermath. It’s extremely easy to pick up.  Trouble is. That’s the game. Literally. Run. Look Zombies! Blamo! Run. Look Zombies! Blamo! If you played exclusivly Co-Op I know fo...

October is the perfect month for this game to be played! 0

A couple podcasts ago, I mentioned trying out Dead Space Extraction on the Wii all for about 10 minutes. Now we know it’s a prequel, but since I never had the time to play through the original game that came out a year ago, I figured October is as good of a month as any to have the bejeezus scared out of me. This game delivers, released for the Xbox 360, PS3, and the PC….Raw scale says, 9/10. The Good – A well told story in the sci-fi/horror realm. You play as an engineer(Issac) that’s part of...

If you’re a Halo fan, you know what to do, if not, become one. 0

 Coming 2yrs after the release of Halo 3 is this tight little expansion, Halo 3 ODST. If you’re a Halo fan, you know what to do, if not, this game won’t change your mind…..8/10. The Good – More Halo, that’s really good to me, which means top notch console first person shooter action. The storyline is a fresh take on the usual formula, you get to see different takes from different character perspectives. It all takes place during Halo 2, basically experiencing a portion of what went down in New M...

Cute puzzler that when it works is quite addictive. Stress WHEN. 0

 Here’s a little Nintendo DS number that was quite the industry darling, some heavy flaws are keeping it from keeping that status though. I wanna give it a 10 for it’s concept, but I gotta go with a 7 for the final execution. The Good – Cute puzzler on the DS, when it works is quite addictive. Here’s the selling point, type in a word, as long as it’s not a copyright, vulgar or whatever, and bam, it shows up on the screen. Type in ‘low rider’, poof, there it is…..’minotaur’, there’s a monster….’g...

A super hero based title that hangs with the triple-A big boys? 0

 Could it be? A super hero based title that hangs with the triple-A big boys? Since I feel this game is a 9/10, I’d say so. I played this joint on the xbox360, it’s also out for PS3 and PC. The Good – Awesome 3rd person adventure that juggles many gaming styles. Obviously you play as Batman, who captures the Joker, while transporting him to Arkham Asylum, Joker gets loose and has sinister plans in place, taking over the asylum and trying to put Batman through a night of hell. It’s got a great st...

If you like RPG’s and own a 360, you need to have this game. 0

 If you like RPG’s and own a 360, you need to have this game. Lets just put that out there.You’ve also most likely played this game but, if you have not, and fall into the category then please go purchase this right now. The game ran the gamut of emotions from pure joy to points where you just flat out feel ripped off. If you said it’s a 90, I’d agree. We spoke about this being the case for Star Wars Force unleashed…so..I was hoping for the DLC to fix some of these issues and it’s yet to be seen...

Too Challenging at times, not for the feint of heart. 0

 Here’s a title off the Xbox Live Arcade, I think it’s a lot of fun and well worth the Microsoft space bucks(800 points AKA 10 bux). On the Richie Raw scale I’m gonna go with an 8/10. The Good – Here’s a title that channels the old school, as in it’s a side-scrolling platform game. You play as a science experiment gone wrong, your body is a constant burning cinder as you try to get through huge laboratory style levels. As Splosion Man, you have to jump and try to solve your way around platform p...

Lots of Addictive game play, with loads of Replayability 0

While downloadable games are usually the ‘bite size’ type, this one is as long as any retail game, longer if you decide to dig deeper. I’m talkin Shadow Complex, another title off the Xbox Live Arcade, it’s goes for 1200 points AKA 15 dollers….and I’m just gonna put it on front street here, this game sucked up most of my weekend, so a 9.5/10 for me as I had an incredible time with it. The Good – More old sschool channeling happening, in the spirit of a Metroid/Castlevania. It’s a side scrolling ...

You'll finish this by the time you're done eating your Take Out. 0

 Here’s a game I’ve had on my mind for awhile. I played up till the final boss, had a really hard time with him, then let it sit till my first PS3 died, lost my saves so I gotta do it again. But it’s good enough for me to wanna play through again, gotta go with a 7/10 on this one. The Good – This is a hack-n-slash game in the style of God of War, you play as Nariko, a fiery redhead who wields the ‘Heavenly Sword’ and is able to pull off a ridiculous amount of attacks and combos with said sword a...

1/2 cup of good and 1/2 cup of bad makes this a solid 3 star. 0

 This game came out last fall, during the time when alot of big hits try to cram through the market at once, though not all of them sell well. It probably explains why so many ‘hits’ from this fall have been delayed till early next year. Anyways, this is one that didn’t sell well, it was also available on PS3, and later on PC. The Good – Original first person experience that introduces gamers to parkour. The game is set in the future, where life is on a corporate stronghold, you’re a sort of an...

I got my copy on release date 7-26-09 (which includes a Wii Motion Plus), and man, people must be expecting this bad boy to SELL. I thought I would have a hard time finding it like most Nintendo products on release day, but stepping in to Target, it was obvious, this game is probably everywhere. Why? I didn’t have to go to the gaming section, a huge stack was sitting at the front of the checkout isles, you know, the impulse product spots….that’s just insane to me. But it must’ have worked becaus...

Best RPG on Xbox360 hands down. 0

Coming out in 2006, seems so long ago, but really only 3 years, this gem still stands as one, or depending on who you talk to at the best RPG for the Xbox360. The game is a continuation of a long history within the Elder Scrolls series hence the IV. Most people call it Oblivion though. Good: The first thing that jumps out at you (especially to newcomers of the Xbox Hd experience) is the depth of graphics. You can visually stand on top of a mountain and see the Main Castle off in the distance a...

Need a mental workout, check this out. Good kids game too. 0

This little game marries entertainment and education – and therefore is referred to as “edutainment.” How cute. Little brain teasers and exercises stimulate your thought processes and get the wheels turning again, but packaged in mini-game format so you don’t even realize you are … gasp … thinking. And since you’ve probably already wasted a few hours (and brain cells) playing your 360 or PS3, the games really do take a matter of minutes – combined. The idea is that you first set up a profile and...

Moral Choices, lame but cant take away from a great game. 0

Allow me to take a page out of the biter’s handbook and follow m’man Chud Rock’s lead as I reach into the knapsack for some GBU action, let’s go back to last fall’s Silent Hill-Homecoming…also partly inspired by this week’s exciting news of a Silent Hill 1 remake. I know you guys are sayin to yerselves, “but Raw, aren’t you gonna be dissapointed by the graphics on the Wii?”….Not at all peeps, as long as it looks as good as SH3 did on the PS2, I’ll be ready to take a trip back to the lovely land ...

One of our favorite DLC for xbox360 0

In honor of Braid finally hitting the PC platform, I’ve decided to show it a little GBU love since it was one of my favorite downloadable xbox360 games last year. If you haven’t yet, try out the demo, if you like it you should buy it cuz it only gets better. This bad boy is a puzzler with 2D platforming elements. The Good – Gorgeous 2D graphics that really make the ol HDTV pop. Looks like a moving painting. Soothing, beautiful music keeps you sane as you try to solve some of the insane puzzles. ...

Don't stand near anything. It WILL be broke after playing this. 0

The Good – Fast paced action of the hack-n-slash variety that’s easy to pick up. God of War like in it’s approach to gameplay, which is a good thing. Fun moves and combos with a leveling system that gets deeper as you go along. Graphics based on Unreal Engine 3, Wolvie himself looks slick, it captures Hugh Jackman perfectly. Wolverine’s healing effect from the X-Men movies are rendered here perfectly, as Wolvie is shot, blown up, etc…you’ll see his insides and adamantium covered bones in all sor...

It feels like a table top game at times with management. 0

This is a oldie, if you consider 2006 old, but quite a goodie that was released for the PC but also the 360. Fresh off the Heels of the much beloved Peter Jackson films this one keeps to the world he helped make a live action reality. I only have time to write out the skirmish setting but the single player is equally as good (if not better). Good: The Art style is pretty bang on amazing. For 2006 you get a spectactular resolution setting. 1400×950. I set it to as high as I could go and the units...

This is a game you need to play. 0

This was the Followup to the wonder RTS, if you want to call it that, game Rollercoaster Tycoon. Developer by the mysterious Chris Sawyer who we’ve heard virtually nothing from after this game. Made your millions and left? Good one. Cheers to you man! Good – MAX graphics setting is 1400×900 so you can play it on today’s "standard" computer monitors, full screen (22’s). Roller-coaster is in windowed mode now. I'd suggest skipping over it. More rides were added in each section that you can choose ...

 So I’ve been playing Resident Evil 5 lately as a break from Prototype.  I’ve heard all the hype about this game being a first person race war shooter.  White guys against black guys.  Unfortunately the people who review these games at first glance don’t usually remember or care about the back story.  The progenitor virus which was the Umbrella Corporations big breakthrough in regeneration of dead cells started as a discovery in the heart of Africa, where as it so happens most of the people livi...

For 5 bucks, give it a chance. You'll be glad you did. 0

Here’s a little gem I found on the PlayStation Network last week,  It was only 5 dollars, so I said buss it, I’ll give it a chance. I’m glad I did, here’s some thoughts. The Good – Very fun puzzler that’s easy to pick up and play. At the start it almost feels like Tetris, so anybody can pick it up and ‘get it’, but it’s a much different game than that. Let me lay it out a bit, your view is from the inside of a trash can, from the side. Trash is slowly dropping from the top one piece at a time th...

I got to thinking about this one the other day when Activision announced that the ‘Call of Duty’ name is back in the Modern Warfare 2 title…….whatever Activision, what we have here is an awesome military first person shooter and it’s upcoming sequel should be as great if not better. Here’s my thoughts on the game that took the series out of the tired WW2 theme (which Activision made sure to take it back to). I played through it on the Xbox360, the same experience can be had on the PC and the PS3...

A quality game, full of explosions, guns and odd cutscenes. 0

Good: The weapons. In no other series will you find as entertaining of weapons as you do in Ratchet. Well..I’m kidding. I’m sure our wonder-kid would love to correct me about some game released in 1985 that did it before. Blowing up things has never been so much fun. Your weapons upgrade with more use, and also can be tricked out to do more damage. Though anyone whose played this franchise I’m sure will be aware of these already. The game is what’s called “old school” though, is 15 years ago rea...

Lots of Bad mixed with some Good? Not worth the 70% rating. 0

The long awaited now-gen iteration of a Ghostbusters game finally dropped in June 2009. Released for just about everything under the sun including the Xbox360, PS3, PC and Wii. What we have here is a 3rd person shooter style action game, except you use proton packs instead of guns. I played through the 360 version. The Good – Really captures the Ghostbusters movies’ feel. The characters represented are all voiced by the original actors, except for Vigo. Tons of fan service, from the music, to Sl...

Actually, I just never buy new releases because they are hella expensive!So, however many years too late, I bought the Sims 2 Double Deluxe for a whopping $19.99.<strong>Good:</strong> The game, like its predecessor, managed to suck me into a black hole for several nights, where nothing existed but my Sim and her perfect little house.

I got a ps3 recently and as any wise sagelike gamer, (me!) I decided not to rush into what's 59.99 right away. So In my usual pattern of game buying I went for some of the older or we can say Classic releases on the PS3. I remember Resistance from it's launch day release and wanted to check it out from that moment onward. So I did! It's more a game based around what could be done in the next game but it was worth the time spent. So Away we go!<strong>Good:</strong> This game could no...
