Visceral Perfection 0

Let me begin this review by informing the reader that I almost never play fighting games. I've enjoyed my fair share of time with the Super Smash Brother's series,but besides that, fighting games have never really clicked for me. The combos, the blocks, the reversals and special moves have always been far too intimidating.That's not to say that I don't appreciate them however. I was a bit young for the arcade fighting game peak, but I remember watching people sink quarter after quarter into the ...

Review: Play it, meatbag! 0

With the impending release of "Star Wars: The Old Republic" fast approaching, I decided to go back and play through a game I had touched on, but never completed when it originally came out. Now, more than 8 years after its release how does the original XBOX release of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic hold up?Surprisingly well as it turns out.Star Wars: KOTOR is a D20 based RPG set in the Star Wars expanded universe several thousand years before the movies that swept the world take place. T...

Set the Industy Standard 0

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, released in 1998 for the Nintendo 64 has perhaps advanced the medium of video games more than any other single game in history. Just this week, for the first time in over a decade I made it to the end credits of this masterpiece, and after 13 years, it still holds up amazingly well.No longer flashy, but still effective.Ocarina of Time follows the story of "Link" (or whatever you decided to name him), a small child living within a magical forest of ever-young...

Still great, but showing its age. 0

I distinctly remember playing Diablo for the first time. I was in elementary school and for all my friends and I knew, Blizzard was the only company making games for the PC. We would schedule specific times when our parents would let us take over the phone lines and use our dial-up modems to play Warcraft II against each other. Diablo, however was a whole other story. As we clicked our way into the dungeon for the first time and encountered an imp, we were so overcome with the creepy music and...

Digital Love 0

I didn't know what to expect when I first booted up Darwinia. I didn't understand any of the screen shots I had seen but I had heard the game was good, so when Steam put it on sale for a ridiculous price I bought it up and dutifully installed it.Having just finished it, I can honestly say that Darwinia is unlike any game I've played before. It takes place in a virtual amusement park where a virus has broken out and the local virtual populous, the Darwinians, are dangerously close to being overru...

The power of the Cosmos! 0

My expectations for Osmos were relatively low. After all, I picked it up for $2.00 during the steam thanksgiving sale in 2009. However, after 5 minutes of playing it, I had bought it as a gift for everyone else that I knew who had a steam account. Maybe it's the nerd in me. Maybe it's the fact that trance/electronica has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. It could also be how beautiful this game looks in motion. Whatever it is, this game clicked with me in a way that few other games have in ...

It was a Triumph 0

Yes, I know I'm late to the Portal party. Although I played through the story shortly after the game came out on my brother's Steam account, I left my Portal experience at that and didn't think much about it somehow, besides occasionally humming the insanely catchy "Still Alive" credit songs every now and then.  Now however, Steam has released Portal for free to celebrate Steam being released on the Mac and I took their generous gift, installed it and headed back into the bowels of Aperture scie...

Astounding Puzzles and Ambiance, Average Everything Else. 0

     Ah-ha! Before playing this game ask yourself one thing. Do you like puzzles? If you don't you have no business playing through Professor Layton and the Curious Village. Any other gameplay that exists in this charming little adventure serves as (an often thinly veiled) excuse to have the player set their noggin to work solving riddles, logic questions, mazes and pretty much any other kind of puzzle you can think of.   Professor Layton and the Curious Village  centers around the title ...

One of Seirra's Best. 1

While everyone else was off playing Lucas Art's adventure games as a child, most of the ones I ended up playing through were not as well known. I have no idea why I never played through any of the Monkey Island or Maniac Mansion games. Perhaps it was because I was never introduced to them. I instead spent my time with lesser known titles like Future Wars, Vengance of Excalibur, and the even more obscure James Bond: The Stealth Affair. While the Gabriel Knight series is certainly more well known ...

Hyper Repair! 0

I've always been a bit of a sucker for turn based strategy games so Advance Wars for the GBA was right up my alley. While it doesn't blow me away like it did when I first played it back when it was originally released, it remains just as addicting and fun as it was back in my middle school years. Advance Wars for the GBA is a Cartoonish Modern Day Turn Based Tactics game that pits the player in a battle of wits against opposing armies spanning a fictional continent. Combat is resolved through tu...

A Flawed Beauty 0

Lets be clear, Lucidity is not for everyone. It can be slow, frustrating, and cumbersome. Beneath it's flaws however, lies an artistic masterpiece that I can see being enjoyed by many.   Lucidity takes our young heroine Sofi through the land of her dreams, where her hopes and fears make up the environment. However, you have no direct control over Sofi herself as she walks from left to right on a two dimensional plane. Instead, you control her by dropping one of 5 random objects in her path- a fa...
