Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions for the DS was, quite frankly, a surprise. While the console versions of Shattered Dimensions are a great opportunity to see all the variations of the webbed wonder, they were, at the end of t... read feature

When it comes to super heroes, the most successful are able to recreate the element of the “everyman.” While almost all of us want to be Superman, Batman, Wolverine or, uh, Mr. Fantastic (was that just me?), those... read feature

Big Fish Games isn't exactly a household name. After all, each of their titles are casual games that don't receive much attention, but seem to do just fine for the company. And considering, as they claim, that they launch a n... read feature

Poor BioShock 2. Not only does it have to be the direct sequel to one of the most critically acclaimed titles of all time, BioShock 2 had to deal with a weaker plot and an audience that approached it with particularly outstan... read feature

Dancing games get a bad rap. Either they're something like DanceDanceRevolution, or they are something like Just Dance. One is a hardcore score-based game that doesn't ever look like real dancing, and one is a much easier mot... read feature

I think I'm a little sad now. read
