Review: Diablo III 0

Twelve years is an awfully long wait for a game, but hardcore PC gamers will tell you there’s no substitute for the feeling that the Diablo franchise provides. The cycle by which Blizzard Entertainment’s loot-based series operates is so concentrated, so irrevocable, that even over a decade later, fans of Diablo II have yet to find an adequate replacement. Enter, Diablo III, the much-anticipated sequel to one of the greatest games of all time. No pressure. Unless, of course, you happened to be an...

Review: Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City 0

(Note: This review can also be found at Front Towards Gamer)When I first heard that Slant Six Games was developing a multiplayer-focused third-person shooter with the Resident Evil license, my immediate thought was of some weird amalgamation of SOCOM Confrontation and Resident Evil: Outbreak. I know that’s not the best pedigree in the world, but don’t be so quick to roll your eyes and write off Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City as just another case of Capcom grasping at straws. While those p...

Review: Ninja Gaiden 3 0

(Note: This review can also be found at Front Towards Gamer)Since its 2004 revitalization, Ninja Gaiden has become synonymous with one thing: fast, brutal combat which, when mastered, is immensely satisfying. It’s become something of a rarity in a console generation defined by terms like “accessibility.” Now spoiled by yearly franchises that pander to publishers’ bottom lines, games like Ninja Gaiden have become almost as much relics of the past as the series’ original NES platformers. With Ninj...

Review: Mass Effect 3 0

Here we are again.Damn, Commander Shepard. We’ve been through some crap together, haven’t we? First Saren decides to go rogue, then we come to find that a race of ultra-advanced machines bent on the total assimilation of all advanced life is about to attack, then you straight-up die, only to be completely rebuilt by a human supremest terrorist organization led by Martin Sheen. We form the biggest group of badasses the galaxy has ever seen with the express intention of destroying an army of Reape...

Review: MLB 12 The Show 0

Something very strange is going on around here. The calendar clearly says it’s 2012, and that’s obviously not Joe Mauer on the box cover - again, but I’d swear Kevin Butler snuck a copy of MLB 11 in my PS3 when I wasn’t looking. Alright, that’s not entirely true. Developer, SCE San Diego made it no secret that this year is all about emphasizing a more authentic major league broadcast presentation, perhaps the one aspect that 2K Sports has a leg up on, in addition to increased Vita and Move integ...

Review: Soul Calibur V 0

Fighting games seem to be in an odd position at the moment. After a prolonged dry spell during the previous generation of consoles, the genre saw a large boom in popularity with the release of Street Fighter 4 and Mortal Kombat. Along the way, one of the industry’s steadfast and oft-overlooked franchises, Soul Calibur, has seen several successful releases. But with its heyday long since past, can a quirky casual fighter like Soul Calibur 5 really succeed among the myriad of tournament-heavy game...

Review: Battlefield 3 0

At about this time last year, Electronic Arts took its first real stab at the ever-increasing Call of Duty market with the revitalization of Medal of Honor. The plan was solid: make a shooter that incorporated elements from Modern Warfare and E.A.’s long-running Battlefield franchise. In execution, however, Medal of Honor was less than spectacular. Game mechanics from Battlefield, such as environmental destruction and class-based multiplayer were dumbed down, and elements taken from Modern Warfa...

Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 0

At this point, Call of Duty has become its own genre. Never mind calling Activision’s seemingly limitless cash cow a military shooter, much less a plain Jane action/adventure game. CoD has reached such a critical mass that to call it anything less would be a gross understatement. With over $1 billion of combined sales between Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops, Call of Duty has become a entertainment behemoth. But with that success comes the pressure to continue producing a quality product.Make no m...

Review: MLB 11 The Show 0

You can only rest on your laurels for so long. After releasing what, in essence, was the same game with various minor improvements for the past four years, Sony Computer Entertainment San Diego finally decided to overhaul the golden goose with the release of MLB 11 The Show.The big ticket item this year is the introduction of "pure analog" controls. Similar to the 2K Sports baseball franchise, the new control scheme is meant to imitate the actions of the on-screen athletes through movement of th...

Review: Gears of War 3 0

It’s tough to say the third time’s the charm in the case of a hugely popular series like Gears of War. However, calling Gears of War 3 the definitive game in the trilogy shouldn’t be taken as a shot against its predecessors, but as an exemplification of just how much an improvement Gears 3 is. Epic Games has filled Gears 3 with such an abundance of content that, in order to unlock everything legitimately, you’d have to play consistently for months, if not years.Of course, the Versus multiplayer ...
