Review: Tekken Card Tournament photo
Review: Tekken Card Tournament
by Chris Carter

For something that came out of nowhere, Tekken Card Tournament is actually a decent if simplistic little card game. As you're locked in card combat, fighter avatars will jostle about on screen just like the core games with a surprising amount of polish, and the game itself is incredibly easy to pick up.

But that's only half the experience. Littered with obscene microtransaction amounts up to $99.99, typical "beg your friends" Facebook bonuses and an energy system, Tekken Card Tournament's pitiful means of asking you for cash at every turn detract from an otherwise enjoyable affair.

Review: Boob Wars: Big Breasts vs. Flat Chests
by Jim Sterling

[Warning: NSFW, even if censored, images following.]

"At the beginning of the 22nd Century, an anomaly began occurring in the bodies of women," so goes the tale of Boob Wars. "All the women of the world became either E Cups and up or A cups and under. 'Big Breasts' and 'Flat Chests' ... Due to their division into these two groups, the debate over which was superior began. 

"After the first incident of armed conflict, known as the 'Nyuuhen Tragedy,' the entire world was split between the Big Breasts Tribe and the Flat Chests Tribe and an intense conflict ensued."

I have seen the conclusion of this story by playing Boob Wars: Big Breasts vs. Flat Chests. My reward? An overwhelming, intense feeling of self-loathing. I think I hate myself entirely, and I owe it all to the fine people at Manga Gamer.

Review: Seduce Me photo
Review: Seduce Me
by Josh Tolentino

Seduce Me is only on our radar because it was developed by folks who worked on the Triple-A Killzone franchise, and later denied a place on Steam's Greenlight project. We likely wouldn't have noticed it, much less be reviewing it, had Valve not opted to shut it out. But here we are.

There are myriad reasons that gamers of all stripes should support a game like Seduce Me. Games should be free to tastefully tackle sex as a subject without being punished commercially or by culture at large. As an effective outlet for base urges, games should be able to do more than violence and still be commercially successful. An "AO" rating from the ESRB shouldn't be a kiss of death. The culture at large should be less shy about one of the most natural human activities. The list goes on.

Unfortunately, for gamers and for developer No Reply, Seduce Me is not the game that will do the things above.

Review: Uncharted: Fight for Fortune photo
Review: Uncharted: Fight for Fortune
by Chris Carter

I don't care if you're a professional tarot reader: no one could have predicted an Uncharted card game.

Out of all of the Sony franchises to choose from, I guess it saw fit to create a card game based around the idea of collecting treasure, and gunning down people in a head-to-head resource management style fashion. It could have ended terribly.

But you know what? As weird as it sounds on paper, it mostly works.
