Two Fighting game Juggernauts collide! 0

Street Fighter X Tekken is the first in two planned crossovers from Capcom and Namco that focuses on their main fighting games. SFXT utilizes the system built from Street Fighter IV, including the visuals, combat system, and netcode from that game, while still appealing to Tekken fans since moves from Namco’s classic fighter can still be used.There is a fairly balanced roster available for each side, and DLC characters are available based on which console or platform you choose to play on. There...

Survival at any costs 0

I am Alive has been through quite some changes ever since it's inception from about 2008. It finally arrived this year as part of Microsoft's House Party promotion for Xbox Live Arcade, but it will be making an appearance on the PlayStation 3 sometime in the future.You'll play as Adam, a man who has traveled the world and comes home to find everything changed due to the Event, a series of disasters that have crippled humanity with a flurry of earthquakes, toxic dust, and other effects, and you'l...

Fast-paced Arena Shooting returns! 0

Nexuiz is a game developed by Illfonic, and is an Arena FPS, similar to Quake III: Arena and Unreal Tournament. This type of game has always been fun to play due to the fast action and quick matches. What makes Nexuiz unique is it's awesome soundtrack, combination of past games – especially since the original game is an open sourced PC title, and the great visuals it provides, thanks to the use of CryEngine 3. If you're a fan of Arena games, great music and gameplay, you're gonna be in for a tre...

Same Author, New Nightmare 0

Alan Wake's American Nightmare is a 5-7 hour experience that will satisfy fans for the hopeful release of Alan Wake 2, as well as introduce new players to the Champion of Light. Taking place in Arizona, Alan finds himself battling the Taken and his evil doppelganger, known only as Mr. Scratch. While the game does take place after the original Alan Wake game, starting on American Nightmare would not only introduce players to the fun flash and shoot gameplay, but really make you want to play the o...

The MMA Champ returns 0

UFC Undisputed 3 is the third game in the new series, and returns after a two-year break. During that extra time, Yukes had many fighters come into their studio, helping to improve animation and really capture the feel of individual fighters. With more fighters, modes, and options than ever, Undisputed 3 is ready to be the best in MMA games once again.Are you ready? Let's get it on, Cmon!I've enjoyed the past UFC games, and have dabbled with the online modes, but usually tend to stick to the car...

Lending a helping Hand 0

Amy is a third-person survival horror game where instead of guns and cover, it's about survival and protection. Lana has been tasked with protecting Amy, the small child who is unable to speak, but possess special abilities which come in handy at specific parts of the game. The game has been critically panned since it's release, and I have to agree with the complaints, but for the $10 price it may be worth a look for horror fans.Amy takes place in the future where a sudden outbreak sends everyon...

The Soul continues to burn 0

Soul Calibur V encompasses every positive element from the previous games, and does a great job of catering to new and regular players. Many familiar characters return, as well as new faces and more options for creating your own fighter. Online play has been revamped, as well as the more focused story mode, even though it focuses on fewer characters this time. There’s only one special character this time, but it’s Ezio Auditore Da Firenze, so I can’t complain.The game looks better than ever with...

Meet the unsung heroes of the fellowship 0

War in the North is a co-op hack-and-slash action game, and features some decent RPG elements, Great visuals, and an original story woven into the LOTR trilogy. Rather than play as known characters of the LOTR lore, you'll play as three new characters who had a hand in the quest to destroy the One ring.When Sauron's right hand commander starts causing trouble and attempts to recruit Dragons to aid in the impending battles, you're given the task of finding him and stopping his men from finding mo...

Orks must die (and other enemies of man) 0

The Warhammer 40,000K series has been around for quite some time, expanding it's universe into different game genres. First were the popular strategy titles, then came the arcade twin-stick shooter, and now here is Space Marine, an 3rd person action title released in September of last year. I've recently had a chance to play the game, and glad I'm did as it contains some intense action as well as an established story that does a nice job of informing new players of the battle between Marines and...

Cool Down The Inferno 0

Renegade Ops is a top-down arcade twin-stick shooter in which you control one of four characters, or six if you purchase the two additional characters.

A game worthy of the Dragonborn 0

28 hours. That's my current time spent the amazing world of Skyrim. In those 28 hours, I've ventured out, done many side-quests, and got to join the Dark Brotherhood, my favorite of the groups to join. I'm about level 26 with my Nord, and I mostly fend off foes using two-handed weapons and my various shouts. There's so much to see and do in Skyrim, and the fact that you can venture anywhere and play how you want really makes this a must-play RPG.Skyrim is vast, but dangerous thanks to dragons, g...

2D beauty redefined 0

Platformers have been on a rise as of late, but none look and play as good as Rayman Origins. That's my personal opinion, of course, but once you play the game you'll know why. The demo really impressed me and the game has been amazing so far. The controls are tight, the game slowly ramps up in difficulty, and you can play with friends. Sadly, the co-op is not online, but it's still a ton of fun.Hilarity ensues with Rayman & crew.Rayman has been around since the PlayStation, and has always b...

A New (Photo) Opportunity for Frank West 0

Dead Rising 2 was a big success for Capcom. It introduced a new lead character in the awesome Chuck Greene, who was motivated to survive in order to keep his infected daughter Katie alive. Adding to the time-restraints, survivors and psychopaths, you also had to worry about getting Katie Zombrex, the official infection suppressor which only works for 24 hours at a time. It was fun, but many wondered why they chose to leave Frank West out. Although we got more of Frank in Case West, people felt i...

Once More Unto The Row 0

Saints Row: The Third doesn't take itself seriously, but it does contains some serious amount of fun. Whether you're playing through missions to progress the story, running around the city messing with pedestrians, or completing one of the many activities in the game, you're bound to have a blast with this over-the-top open world game. Saints Row 2 introduced more of the crazy gameplay elements to the series, and The Third rises the bar even further with more variety and twice as many crazy mome...

The blockbuster series returns! Can you stop Makarov? 0

Modern Warfare 3 offers up some intense action in all of its modes. Whether you’re continuing the story to stop World War III and take down Makarov, taking on the many Spec Ops or survival missions, or just ranking up in multiplayer, Modern Warfare 3 proves to be the complete package for fans. From the main menu, you have three different options to choose from, so I thought I would separate my review into three sections as well:CampaignModern Warfare 3 doesn’t really differ from the previous COD...

Become Batman and defend Gotham by entering the dangerous Arkham 0

Batman Arkham Asylum really surprised people with it's quality, including myself. It was a critical and commercial success, and people were wondering if Rocksteady could strike magic again. Two years later, and here we are with Arkham City. The game not only surpasses Arkham Asylum in almost every aspect, it raises the bar for action games in general.Batman's back, and he's ready to dish out some justice.Arkham City offers up more exploration than the AsylumPicking up quite some time after the e...

Nano-Suit up for a 2007 hit game 0

Crysis brought PC gaming rigs to it's knees in 2007, with it's high-quality visuals and Nano-suit gameplay, while console players were mostly likely finishing the fight in Halo 3 if they were playing games on the 360. Since that time, Crysis 2 was made available on both PC and consoles, and now the original game has made it's way to the Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3 as a digital download.Crysis has some intense fire-fights to accompany the amazing visualsWhile I played and enjoyed Crysis 2, I nev...

First arriving in 2005, Resident Evil 4 has made it’s way from the Gamecube, to the PS2, and Wii across the years, and is now stopping on the 360 & PS3 in the form of Resident Evil 4: HD.

What makes us human? 0

Deus Ex is one of the most acclaimed gaming series around, and the time between each one is so sparse that expectations become increasingly high as we wait for the new entry to be released. Developer Eidos Montreal with the backing of Square Enix has not only crafted a respectable sequel, but has made one of the best games around. Deus Ex: HR is a prequel to the original Deus Ex game. Human Revolution takes place in the year 2027, which is about 20 years before the events of the original Deus ...

Bloody, Scary Wonderland. 0

It's been 10 years since the original Alice game was introduced to players on the PC, and now it is finally time to help Alice discover the truth about her family's deaths.

Become the Kid. Restore the Bastion. 0

   Bastion was the start of the 2011 Summer of Arcade, and is one of the finest Arcade games out there. With a great story and excellent visuals, the premier game from Supergiant Games really delivered on everything it promised.     Kid's got a nice arsenal to use. He loves mixing and matching. Gotta find the right combo to thump the baddies. What makes Bastion stand out is the Audio. Throughout your adventure, your actions will be narrated by another character in the game named Rucks.

No longer taking place in the Wild West, The Cartel puts you in the shoes of three law enforcement agents as they battle against the players in the drug trade, while also dealing with their partners and attempting to determine their own intentions. Ubisoft has changed Call of Juarez. Developers have done this in the past where they breakdown down their games and rebuild them, but it doesn't always come back together again...

F.E.A.R. 3 keeps the conflict in the family 0

The Fear games have always included some nice weaponry, bizarre creatures, spooky moments, and random Alma encounters, and Fear 3 follows this formula as well. This time around you control Point Man and Fettel, Alma's offspring, as they set out to find their mother and decide on what to do when they reach her since she's ready to give birth to her new baby. Point Man and Fettel: Alma's pride and joy. Things are a bit tense throughout the story since Point Man can not seem to ignore the words of ...

Mortal Kombat gets the reboot it needs and deserved 0

Mortal Kombat fans had to stand by as Capcom unleashed Street Fighter IV in 2009. That long running franchise which garnered critical acclaim from fans re-lit the fighting game flame when it was released. Fast forward to now, Street Fighter IV has had some digital and retail updates, and Mortal Kombat has begun releasing it's add-on characters.   As with Street Fighter IV, Mortal Kombat has returned and gotten back to it's roots; the violence is over the top, the fatalities are brutal, and the g...

Fight for the future with future technology 0

Crysis 2 is a visual treat to the eyes.   Crysis 2 is a visually pleasing game. OK it is a REALLY visually appealing game, but as you know that is only a portion of what makes a game great. Crytek has utilized their CryENGINE 3 to create a game that looks, feels, and plays very differently from the slew of first person games out there. PC players can still max out the settings and enjoy the benefits of a mouse & keyboard, but now console players can experience the story of the nanosuited sol...

Get Back to Thinking with Portals 0

The 2007 collection of Valve hits that made up the Orange Box was an amazing deal for gamers. Whether you were new to Half-Life or not, there was plenty of gaming to be had. With Half-Life 2 and it's two episodes, and the multiplayer phenom Team Fortress 2, you had plenty of things to shoot and kill. Then there was Portal. This puzzle game was full of innovative gameplay, memorable characters and a new antagonist that remains a fan favorite. Originally beginning as a student project, Portal beca...

Sure there would be resistance, but how could you fight back? Would you even try?

The House doesn't always win. 0

I first picked up Fallout: New Vegas like many of you might have back in October. About a week later, I took it back. Somehow when I fired a weapon, I would receive a message that my controller was disconnected. When I hot-keyed apparel, the game would freeze. Even worse was key quests would not be completed even though the requirements were met.  I really wanted to play this game at launch, but it just would not let me.  Skip to 2011, I decide to pick the game back up again after hearing of m...

Skill(Shots) for Kills Agen..er Space Pirates! 0

Bulletstorm is all about killing people in crazy ways to rack up a nice score no matter what mode you're playing through. Thanks to the strength of Grayson Hunt, you can kick and slide into foes launching them into the air, where you can string together some nice combinations that will further your kill count and score. You'll hear lots of bad language here, and blood & gore aplenty, but it's all done in good  health here and great way to to just let go of the realism games are trying to ach...

 It’s hard to believe the original Dead Space came out in 2008. It feels like yesterday that we were introduced to Isaac Clarke and his mission to board the Ishiamura and find out what was going on there alongside a crew of others.

In his quest to find her, Issac discovered the Marker, a relic containing mysterious attributed and something draws the Necromorphs. Ab...

In the future, man’s best friend is a gas mask. 0

Over the past years in videogames we’ve been able to experience a world post nuclear attacks and struggle against new enemies, scavenge around for tools, and try and survive to see another day. Metro 2033 was released in March of 2010, and gave us a different take on that type of experience. I finally had a chance to play the game, and I was pretty impressed.  Taking elements from Fallout, Bioshock, and a little Silent Hill mixed in, Metro delivers a world full of desperation, and as Russian sur...

Hydrophobia is an arcade game known in it’s previews for the impressive water effects it can bring.
