Stranglehold

09-07-2007

So, here’s the thing: The majority of gamers are already decided on whether or not they’re going to purchase Stranglehold. If anything, the question of whether or not to buy seems like a no-brainer: if you’...

Sam & Max Episode 204: Chariots of the Dogs

03-13-2008

BUY THIS GAME. Or rather, buy the whole season. I've previously reviewed more Sam and Max episodes than I care to count, but this most recent one is by far the best, and the most undeniable proof that Telltale's Sam and Max ...

Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition

07-18-2009

Let’s rewind to E3 2009. I’m inside LucasArts’ conference room. I’m a few minutes early for the Star Wars: The Old Republic presentation. They have food and drink in both corners of the entrance. I&rsq...

Splosion Man

07-20-2009

Twisted Pixel pushed its way onto the Xbox LIVE Arcade scene earlier this year with The Maw. An original title based on an original IP, we thought it was pretty damned impressive for the studio's first effort. Its sophomore e...

Shadow Complex

08-19-2009

Chair Entertainment's Shadow Complex is out today on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 MS Points, or 15 American dollars. It's a "Metroidvania"-style side-scroller, heavily influenced by Super Metroid. You blow a lot of things up, an...

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

12-11-2009

No weapons? Wii waggle? And a "re-imagining" of the first Silent Hill game is what they're calling this? The combination sounds like Silent Hill: My Worst Nightmare, and I don't mean that in a good way. Boy, was I ever wrong....


 

Steel Diver

06-15-2010

Nintendo is bringing new iterations of franchises like Star Fox or Paper Mario to the recently announced 3DS. But what about new stuff? Familiar faces are fine and all, but what else ya got? Tucked in the corner is Steel Dive...

Soul of Darkness

07-12-2010

If gaming were a religion, it would vary in practice and observance from person to person. In my case, I'd model it closely to the faith with which I have the most experience, Catholicism. I'd recognize my own Holy Trinity of...

Sonic Colors

11-14-2010

While Sonic the Hedgehog has become quite famous for a string of terrible games over the past ten years, that's only really true in terms of home console output. Hyperbole states that we haven't had a good Sonic game since So...

Splatterhouse

11-24-2010

Splatterhouse has never really been a great franchise, but it earned its cult following thanks to obscene content, disturbing creature designs, and a Lovecraft-inspired aesthetic. Your humble reviewer is one of those follower...

Swarm

03-30-2011

More than any other game I can recall playing, Swarm gets right to the point in its main menu screen. As with all PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade titles, there are the usual options to select from by hitting, in my c...

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles

04-02-2011

Where there is a new system, there is a new Warriors game waiting in the wings. Tecmo Koei has gotten in early this time, ready for the 3DS' launch with Samurai Warriors Chronicles, yet another button-bashing foray into the world of medieval Japan.  Maybe Tecmo Koei rushed in a little too early this time.

Stacking: The Lost Hobo King

04-05-2011

Little Charlie Blackmore may have succeeded in rescuing his doll family from the evil baron, but his adventures are not yet over. A new quest for the smallest Matryoska doll arrives this week on PlayStation Network and Xbox L...

Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition

04-12-2011

Ladies and gentlemen, here's to Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition, the first million-selling title on the 3DS! This doesn't come as much of a surprise, though. It's easily the best of the available launch titles and should ...

Strania - The Stella Machina

04-14-2011

If I hadn't been reviewing so many of them lately, I would have thought the shoot-em-up genre was dead.  Apparently I was wrong as I've reviewed more games from this genre than any other over the last six months. ...


 

star wars

06-01-2011

How complex is R2-D2? He's got all those tools and holographic equipment, but they couldn't put in a voice chip that makes him speak English? Woah, sorry. I'm getting off topic. This is about Kinect and E3. You'l...


 

Silent Hill 4: The Room

06-04-2011

Just days before E3, Konami held its own special press conference and dropped a few goshbombs on us. The story that really jumped out at me was the Silent Hill HD Collection. This is something I've wanted for a long time, if ...


 

Sesame Street: Once Upon

06-07-2011

Double Fine founder Tim Schafer sees quite a few similarities between Children's Television Workshop, the folks responsible for Sesame Street, and his own studio. At Double Fine, says Schafer, the goal is always to try someth...


 

Super Mario (working title)

06-08-2011

Yes, those goombas have raccoon tails. Amazing. A new Mario platformer on any Nintendo system is always exciting, but one made specifically for the 3DS and created by the team that developed Super Mario Galaxy? Well, that's s...


 

Sonic the Sketch Hog

06-21-2011

A 20th anniversary bash is happened this weekend in Japan for Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog. Tokyo's Odaiba (I love that place!) hosted Sega VIPs and fans to celebrate Sonic's birthday, and it was there that a new iPhone app was ...


 

Second Sight

06-21-2011

Second Sight is a game remembered more for its bad timing than for what it did as a piece of interactive entertainment. Before Free Radical released this game, our opportunity to play with psychic powers in videogames was par...


 

Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing

06-23-2011

It's Sonic's 20th birthday, and SEGA is celebrating how all publishers celebrate anniversaries -- by raking in some damn Benjamins!  Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing is hitting iOS devices today, bringing the paradoxical ...


 

Shadow of the Colossus HD

06-29-2011

Check out these translated images from the official guidebook for Shadow of the Colossus. There's a bunch of concept art and character pages at GlitterBerri to enjoy. I really dug checking out the sketches for the unused Colo...
