With Max Payne 3 on the horizon, I brought myself to play its predecessors for the first time over the last month or so. In an attempt to both get back into writing about my favorite hobby and practice my pathetic attempts ...
By now, most of you have already seen the new 3DS second nub attachment (and if you haven't...look above) and most of you, (judging by the comments) have raged at the thing. Whether it be because of the look, or because of ...

Dead Space was a survival-horror game released in 2008. It received critical acclaim for its utilization of different aspects of a wide variety of previous horror games to create an experience unlike any other game.
I like the music in the 3D Sonic games. There, I said it. For ages while playing Sonic Adventure for the first time, I found myself singing Open Your Heart constantly. At least until Sonic and the Secret Rings, they endeare...
