Zombies Are Terrifying Again 0

The Walking Dead just redefined zombie videogames for me. For pretty much as long as I've been playing games (all the way back to the SNES) zombies have been a nuisance, a menace and even a worthy foe, but they've rarely, if ever, been terrifying. In this game: they are terrifying. Every time you face one it is a life-and-death struggle, and don't even BOTHER with more than one. You are not some badass choosing between a shotgun or an assault rifle, you're choosing between a hammer and a OH GOD ...

Mistakes Lack of Direction for Freedom 0

Infinite Space begins with a great enough concept: it's an RPG with star ships. This alone is enough to make it intriguing, seeing as how most RPGs place you squarely in the fantasy genre, but Infinite Space makes a series of tragic mis-steps on the road to greatness that ultimately derail it. The spaceship combat is easily the most compelling part and is also the best part of the game. You are given three different commands: Dodge, Normal and Barrage. Dodge will completely evade a Barrage attac...

A Love Letter To Action Game Fans 0

Action videogames seemed like they were somewhat on the wane. There were still a great many of them coming out (and there are many still to come) but the thrills they offered were becoming derivative and, worst yet, repetitive. When Bayonetta was first announced, skepticism abounded. It seemed destined for the obscurity that came with being a Devil May Cry clone these days (the fact that the creator of that series was attached gave little solace). Then the demo came out. And opinion began to shi...

Takes a Minute To Get There, But Worth the Trip 0

Batman: Arkham Asylum is based on the DC Comics (recently DC Entertainment) character who has become a cultural touchstone since the brilliant one-two punch of "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" and this game, while taking a little while to rev up, fairly accurately simulates what it must be like to be The Batman.You take control of the titular character as he's bringing his archnemesis the Joker to the sinister Arkham Asylum. Naturally something goes wrong within the first ten minutes of Jok...

A Few Minor Flaws Keep It From Perfection 0

There's an epidemic going around. It's symptoms are readily recognizable: clothing made of iron, weapons made of steel and wood, haughty elves, drunken dwarves, prophencies being fulfilled and, of course, severe dragons. I'm talking about the epidemic that seems to be sweeping the game industry that forces all RPGs, be they MMO or single-player, to take place in a post-Tolkien (sometimes even within Tolkien) fantasy setting. For those who prefer lasers over crossbows, plasteel over regular ol' s...

A Bit Clunky, But Still a Classic 0

Downloading this piece of my childhood from Steam was a bit of mixed bag, I'm a little sorry to admit. I went in with rose-tinted lenses remembering exciting fistfights and amazing voice-overs sandwiching some light puzzle solving. What I wound up with was a pretty equal helping of all three.The game is most definately an Indiana Jones game, opening with Indie trying to find a statue amidst a cluttered schoolhouse and moving on to, of course, have you take on the Nazis in their attempt at world ...

Bought This AFTER Buying Persona 3 0

Persona 3 was THE best RPG I'd played in a VERY long time, and as an old-school fan of RPGs, it was nearly the perfect game. Occasionally atrocious ally AI and clunky inventory management are the only things that prevent it from achieving true perfection and adding on a 30+ hour campaign, new personae, new quests and new character interactions to what was already an INCREDIBLY robust game, then putting it at a budget price translates into no excuse for Japanese RPG fans not to play this game.You...

Tried to Not Let Past Games Influence Me 0

But I couldn't help it. The Phoenix Wright games were and are my favorite DS games. They had great writing, amazing characters and incredibly impressive twists along with incredible dynamics between the characters.For neophyte lawyers, the game has two modes: investigation and courtroom. In investigation you gather evidence, as the police department seems to be working for ONLY the prosecution, making you lawyer and detective rolled into one, by interviewing witnesses and suspects as well as doi...
