NiGHTS into dreams...

11-10-2012

Full disclosure: I missed out on NiGHTS when it was originally released on the Saturn. I had the demo disc, but never played it, and the PlayStation 2 release never hit North America. Now that it's available via download on console, I figured I'd take a crack at it and see what all the hype was about back in the day. I was not prepared for this game.

WWE '13

11-03-2012

Ah, annual sports iterations. Many of us await them with open arms year after year, and the rest yawn in disapproval. After the massive overhaul with the Predator Technology engine in WWE '12, fans were asking, "What's next?"...

Halo 4

11-01-2012

Halo 4: Game of the Year Edition is coming out next week on October 8 for $39.99. Note that when we first learned about this package it was listed at $49.99, so this is a much better price now. It's going to include the game...

Dragon Ball Z For Kinect

10-20-2012

It seemed like a good idea at the time: Take the popular Dragon Ball Z fighting games and put them in first person perspective with Kinect controls, allowing players to punch, kick, and Kamehameha their way through the series' popular battles, allowing players to be immersed in the Dragon Ball world like never before. Wait... Kinect? No, I was wrong. That doesn't seem like a good idea at all.

DOOM 3: BFG Edition

10-19-2012

Mention DOOM 3 to most fans, and the common (disparaging) response will be, "Monster Closets." Earning criticism for its jump scares, lack of charisma, and stylistic departure from previous DOOM titles, DOOM 3 has not aged we...

Skylanders Giants

10-18-2012

Activision sent a box of those Skylanders Giants Happy Meal toys over. Bereft of anything interesting to do, I decided to review them. I didn't really review them, though. I just rambled sarcastically while playing with toys.  Videogame journalism is real.

Borderlands 2: Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty

10-16-2012

Borderlands 2's first DLC, Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, extends the original game's love for having as many Easter eggs as possible. The latest (I'd argue greatest), discovery is that there is a Big Daddy na...

Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise

10-16-2012

Of all the games I never expected to get a sequel, Naughty Bear was pretty high on the list. Not only was it a bottom-shelf title from a studio not exactly known for its long-running franchises, it was pretty underwhelming. A...

Fable: The Journey

10-07-2012

The fatal flaw of Kinect games is that they are built on a foundation of lies. You are the controller -- except most games control much of the action themselves to make up for the lack of input. It's more immersive -- except ...

Sonic Adventure 2 HD

I have some pretty vivid memories of spending entire days playing Sonic Adventure 2 on both the Dreamcast and GameCube. I can clearly remember rollin' around at the speed of sound. I had places to go. I followed my rainbow. T...
