Army Corps of Hell

02-14-2012

[Update: Contest closed! Grand prize winnner is Dreamweaver! Runner-ups are N7, nekobun and Overindulgence!] Yes, you read that right. Freaking ukuleles. We've teamed up with Square Enix to give away a badass Army Corps of He...

Asphalt Injection

02-22-2012

Just as I was settling in to start typing this review, I had to reach for the case while muttering, "What is this one even called?" Such is the existence of the Asphalt series, a racing game so indistinct that you could play ...

Assassin's Creed III: Liberation

11-01-2012

Liberation is a bit of conundrum. On one hand, it offers a pretty incredible portable Assassin's Creed experience for the first time, since the plethora of iOS spinoffs and Bloodlines didn't really do the series any true just...

Atomic Ninjas

10-17-2013

Ninjas and explosions: two great tastes that you would think taste great together, right? Throw them in a pot, mix with weapons, gadgets, and frenetic multiplayer action, and you have a recipe for an awesome adventure. Sadly, I don't think this one cooked long enough.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate

10-31-2013

PlayStation has discounted a metric crapton of games on the PSN Europe Store from now until the end of April. First up, Dying Light stars as the Deal of the Week, available until April 22 for €49.99/ £39.99/AU$69.99 (previously €69.99/£54.99/AU$99.95). Unless you're in Germany. For some reason. Sorry (not my fault. Honest).

Bentley's Hack Pack

02-13-2013

Sony does a pretty terrible job at promoting its first-party games. For instance, take Sly Cooper. Droves of gamers were not only unaware that Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time launched last week, but they were completely in the da...

Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified

11-20-2012

I feel I owe Nihilistic Software (now nStigate Games) an apology. After I had reviewed Resistance: Burning Skies, I thought it was a terrible game developer with no talent, no ambition, and no resources. Burning Skies' qualit...

Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars

04-17-2014

Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars, everyone's favorite baby-making simulator (not literally, calm down), is finally available for fans in Europe, with the 3DS edition coming tomorrow, May 15. If you've been hankering...

CounterSpy

08-20-2014

CounterSpy's stylized Cold War re-imagining is on point. It looks good, with its spindly spy running, rolling, and leaping like a jumping spider. It sounds good, with its jazzy soundtrack that reminds of James Bond.  Unfortunately, the rest of it feels half-baked.

Criminal Girls: Invite Only

03-07-2015

We all know the PlayStation Vita is now the de facto home for all things Japanese. Ports, remakes, re-releases, and original content all trickle down similarly to the little handheld that could, and the Vita port of 2010's PS...

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

09-28-2014

From the beginning, this murder (and I've seen a lot of them over the course of my career) struck me as too simple. Kyle Hebert -- a voice actor you may recognize as the voice of Ryu from Street Fighter -- was found de...

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

From the beginning, this murder (and I've seen a lot of them over the course of my career) struck me as too simple. Kyle Hebert -- a voice actor you may recognize as the voice of Ryu from Street Fighter -- was found de...

Dead or Alive 5 Plus

03-29-2013

Last year, we returned to the sometimes strange but always beautiful Dead or Alive series; not in a leisurely beach title but in the series hallmark fighting genre. What we got was a deep, technical fighter that wasn't too te...

Demon Gaze

05-12-2014

I'm a dungeon crawler at heart, so any game that throws me into the pits and makes me claw my way out is a good time on at least some level. Difficulty? Unforgiving systems? Bring it on. For me, just about any grind is an enjoyable grind. But even as a diehard genre fan, PS Vita dungeon crawler Demon Gaze tried my patience and resolve.

Destiny of Spirits

04-30-2014

Sony's gotta-catch-'em-all Vita card game Destiny of Spirits will be shut down June 30. Apparently the "over one million downloads" were not enough to sustain the free-to-play Vita title and so Sony will be "ending service." ...

DJMAX Technika Tune

01-27-2013

Prior to playing DJMAX Technika Tune for this review, I could count the number of times I had listened to K-Pop music on one hand, one of those being PSY's "Gangnam Style." To some, that would make me only slightly ...

Dokuro

10-19-2012

Late last year a modest platformer named Dokuro hit the PlayStation Vita, giving it a much needed boost in a rather dry period for the portable. It was a beautiful but flawed game, making it hard to recommend at the full...

Dragon Fantasy Book I

05-28-2013

Have you played Dragon Quest? Did you like Dragon Quest? Yes? Then boy, do I have a game for you. Dragon Fantasy Book 1 is a celebration of the NES RPGs many of us grew up with. This is, for my money, an equal parts great and...

Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition

01-07-2015

When I was younger, Duke Nukem 3D had a "parental lock" option with a passcode. Naturally, as any inquisitive child would do, I backed up my save files, uninstalled the game, re-installed it, and set up a new jibber...

Dungeon Hunter: Alliance

02-22-2012

Dungeon Hunter: Alliance originally came to the PlayStation Network in April 2011, where it is still available for $12.99. A few months later, the game was ported to Mac, where it has recently been on sale for $0.99.  Ga...

Dynasty Warriors Next

02-22-2012

If you build it, a Dynasty Warriors spin-off will come. This has been true of any game system released in the past few years, and Tecmo Koei has no intention of breaking tradition with the PlayStation Vita. Dynasty Warriors N...

Escape Plan

02-16-2012

Sony is delivering a brand new DLC pack for Escape Plan titled "The Asylum", and it's ready for your perusal on the PSN for .25 (it'll revert back to $4.99 on June 26th). The DLC takes place directly after the events of the g...

F1 2011

03-12-2012

I love arcade racing games. The sense of speed, the excitement of hairpin turns, and the hum of the engine get my blood pumping in a fast and fun way. Racing sims can offer the same enjoyment yet allow for more customization ...

Flame Over

03-11-2015

Roguelikes suck. They don't suck as in they are horrible to play. They suck for me because they're so damn hard. But in this genre, that's part of the challenge. For whatever reason, our gamer brains desire to overcome the im...

Freedom Wars

11-04-2014

Last week Japan had a special Freedom Wars related event. During the convention-like affair, Sony had an announcement for fans -- a new Propaganda Idol project is underway. Based on the fictional idols within the confine...
