Onward and upward, but where do we go from here? 1

This console generation has not been kind to the Legend of Zelda series. Often considered to be one of the most beloved console gaming franchises of all time, that legacy has been tarnished in the years since cult classic The Wind Waker released on the Gamecube in 2003.

Is this prequel to the sequel worth your time or a quick cash-in? 0

When Capcom released the first Dead Rising, one of the main factor's of its success was the dearth of quality software soon  There are plenty of zombies to bludgeon in this new downloadable title. after the launch of the 360.  While the game was well-made and fairly popular, the Japanese developer included some design and control quirks that turned off some American players.  With a new American developer and some adjustments to the game design, Dead Rising 2 looks to bring the frantic fu...
