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’...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

03-08-2008

How classy can one video game theme be? Just ask the Triforce Quartet, the dapper gentlemen captured performing the Super Smash Bros. Brawl theme here. It's sweet, sweet music to my ears, and I surmise it will be to 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 ...

Street Fighter IV

02-17-2009

Editor's note: In an internal staff email us old-timers were just laughing about the absurdity of this super fanboy article I wrote back in 2007 voicing my disgust with the redesigned Street Fighter. I've since grown accustom...

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...

Space Invaders: Infinity Gene

08-04-2009

If you're an Android owner like myself, chances are you're probably more than a little envious of all the great games that wind up on the App Store. Luckily, every so often one of those titles makes its way over to the Droid ...

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....

Super Mario Galaxy 2

05-23-2010

Oh, you cuh-RAYzay hackers! What magic will you perform next? Some rosy-cheeked tinkerers have decided to hack the data for Super Mario Galaxy 2 to create a suite of custom levels called Super Mario Galaxy 2.5. The hack isn'...

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...

StarCraft II

Blizzard is giving custom-game creators access to thousands of Warcraft III assets for use in the StarCraft II Arcade, including character and structure models, music, sound effects, and user interfaces for each race. What wi...

Shantae: Risky's Revenge

10-09-2010

Although Shantae: Risky's Revenge started off as a DSiWare game, it eventually was available to play on the 3DS, and was ported to iOS. Now it's heading to the PC with a few new extras. The first most obvious addition is the...

Super Meat Boy

10-17-2010

Look, I hate these posts as much as the next guy, alright? Kids. Yuck. Some people devote their lives to raising these little piles of germs with suspect motor skills. Even my dumb parents were foolish enough to fall into th...

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...

Stacking

02-09-2011

A week ago, the Humble Double Fine Bundle was announced. For some, it was easy to resist; though the games on the list range from decent to great, fans of the studio already owned most, if not all of the titles. Of course th...

Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition

03-24-2011

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 ...

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.

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. ...
