Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Review

You know how people rip on Dynasty Warriors games for never doing anything different, no matter how they re-skin the series? That style of criticism has recently hit the juggernaut Call of Duty series. Essentially the same ...

 


History of Soulcalibur's Guest Characters

With the announcement that Ezio Audiatore de Firenze will be in the upcoming Soulcalibur V, I've decided to transcend history and the world to rate the Soulcalibur guest characters! These often out-of-place characters have a...

 


Gears of War 3 review

Here it is, the end of one of the most celebrated trilogies in recent gaming memory. Gears of War 3 has a lot of significance for many gamers, as it was the first “next-generation” series for the round of gaming consoles tha...

 


In Defense of...

Before I begin, I'm going to say this right now: I am not going to make any claims about being right on this topic. The logic may be flawed, the argument laughable, but dammit, I'm trying to do something other than rank-and ...

 


Homefront Review (X360)

Let it be known that 2011 was the year that shooters attempted to take down Call of Duty. One major player this year is the vaunted Battlefield 3, while a relative unknown is also attempting to take down Activision's juggern...

 


MLB 11: The Show Preview

Ah, MLB: The Show. One of two baseball series that makes me proud to be a PS3 owner. I've been playing the series on a yearly basis since MLB 08, and while it's been good, MLB 10 felt...too samey for some reason. The mecha...

 


Apropos of Nothing: JRPG Quirks

Regular readers of my blog (all five of you) know that I usually don't go beyond the realm of the textbook review. Considering how many people do editorials and they're on myriad different topics, this one likely will make p...

 


Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Review (PS3)

When I first saw Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit at E3 2010, I said, “It's about damn time.” Up until last year's excellent (but shallow and formulaic) Need for Speed: Shift, I hadn't truly enjoyed a NFS game since the original ...

 


Call of Duty: Black Ops Review (360)

The name Call of Duty strikes fear into the hearts of everybody else who wants to release a game during the holiday season. Since 2007, the CoD franchise has been a sales and critical juggernaut, but the series slips every o...

 


Medal of Honor Review (PS3)

While I do like first-person shooters, I will admit right now that they are not my forte. While they are the most popular genre these days, especially on consoles, they are also the genre that seemingly does not even attempt...

 


MLB 10: The Show Preview

Now that the painful part in previewing MLB 2K10 is out of the way, the real fun begins in my preview of MLB 10: The Show. Those who have played The Show since its debut on the PS3 know that it has come a long way since the ...

 


MLB 2K10 Preview

Anybody who has read my blog (all three of you) knows I'm nuts about baseball. Even though I'm a Red Sox/SoftBank Hawks fan, I can appreciate good baseball, and will even go all the way to Asia to get it. My first two revie...

 


About Yakulto27one of us since 9:08 PM on 04.20.2008

My name is Jim, but a lot of people call me Jimbo. I'm a budding journalist, and I write about two things in general: video games and baseball. I love fusing the two into my baseball game reviews to try and find the perfect baseball experience. There probably will never be one, but there are ones that come close.

My favorite games of all time (not named Zelda, Mario, or Sonic) are ActRaiser for Super Nintendo, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan for Nintendo DS, Ninja Gaiden on Xbox/PS3, and the best golf game ever made, Arnold Palmer Tournament Golf for the Sega Genesis. As you've seen (and will see), I like imports, especially since the Japanese get games we will either never see, or will see about 10 years after they originally come out (see Yakuza 2 and 3).
