Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara

06-18-2013

Part of the appeal of Dungeons and Dragons (the table top RPG) is that it takes you out of the modern day of 24 hour news cycles and constant connection to everyone everywhere through multiple simultaneous internet portals. I...

The Last of Us

06-05-2013

[An earlier version of this piece had an inaccurate statistical description of one of the downloadable weapons. The offending paragraph has been updated for factual accuracy.] I know, I'm late to the party. Despite being inte...

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...

Dust 514

05-17-2013

EVE Online has been tweaked a bit to change-up how players interact with Dust 514 players. Dust 514 players used to earn orbital strikes be earning points during their match, but now they have to rely on EVE pilots to decide ...

Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut

05-04-2013

Word has gotten out about Swery65's cult classic Deadly Premonition in the years since Jim Sterling's memorable review, but there are many people who wrote it off or otherwise missed out. This might help. Rising Star Games ha...

Star Trek The Game

04-30-2013

The videogame tie-in for Star Trek Into Darkness was pretty poorly received, and JJ Abrams, the movie's director, is bummed out about it. Well, not about the critical reception; he's in agreement there. He's disappointe...

Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory

04-09-2013

Compile Heart is trying its best to keep the PlayStation Vita library stuffed to the gills with ports, remakes, and the like. The company has joined forces with Summon Night team Felistella to release an enhanced ve...

Guacamelee!

04-09-2013

Guacamelee! came out early last year, and ended up being my second-favorite game of 2013, with its bright colors, unique setting, and satisfying brawler combat all wrapped up into a Metroidvania. I recommend it whenever ...

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14

03-26-2013

The Tiger Woods series has always been my favorite of EA's annual sports games. Ever since I performed my first virtual swing with the analog sticks, I became hooked. I don't like it enough to even think about paying every si...

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3

03-21-2013

It's a good day for Naruto fans, fans of PC fighting games, and fans of "enhanced edition" rereleases. Namco Bandai has just announced that its Ultimate Ninja Storm series will be making a PC platform deb...

Assassin's Creed III: The Betrayal

03-20-2013

Ubisoft has a lot to prove with its "what if" story of an evil George Washington. The first episode wasn't nearly as enthralling as Ubisoft had promised, mostly due to the fact that it felt like a lot was held back in favor of splitting it into three parts. The second portion, titled The Betrayal, in some ways, is a step forward -- a very, very small step forward, and a step back, that is.

Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk

03-12-2013

It’s a well-known fact that the gaming industry is sorely lacking in strong female leads, with the game shelf at the local Best Buy sometimes looking like a page torn from “Who’s Who Among Expressionless Whi...

God of War: Ascension

03-07-2013

God of War: Ascension is supposed to be really good, but boy does it feel forgotten this year (it just came out in March!). Sony Santa Monica hasn't forgotten it, though. The team has been pumping Ascension with a steady stre...

Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires

03-05-2013

When it comes to milking a franchise, few companies are as impressive in their zeal as Tecmo Koei. This is a company that has not only released seven Dynasty Warriors games (with an eighth on the way), but managed to produce ...

Capcom Arcade Cabinet

02-19-2013

Back when we first reviewed Capcom Arcade Cabinet we told you it would probably be best to just buy all the titles at once rather than dealing with the staggered releases of game packs. That time is now. You'll get all 15 gam...

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

02-12-2013

Sly Cooper has come out of retirement to try and solve the mystery of why pages have been disappearing from the Thievius Raccoonus, the tome of family history for the Cooper lineage of master thieves. Reunited with best frien...

Dead Space 3

02-08-2013

Earlier this week I got the chance to take a closer look at one of Titan Books' recent iOS endeavors, Awakening: The Art of Halo 4 Enhanced Edition. While I enjoyed seeing the beautiful and picturesque vistas created by John ...

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

01-21-2013

Here's a deal that's almost impossible to pass up for any fans of role-playing games. Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is only $5 right now during a Sony Flash Sale. That's so stupidly cheap! There are a few other decent ...

Black Knight Sword

12-13-2012

Within my first thirty minutes of playing Black Knight Sword, I encountered a menu option called "cat head grass," a giant mother eye that eats hearts, and severed skulls in a microwave oven that serve as health power-ups. Yep, this is definitely a Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality joint.

Midway Arcade Origins

12-08-2012

When there was still an arcade near my house, Midway games were the ones I often found myself pumping the most quarters into. During the last console generation, I scooped up the Midway Arcade Treasures collections to relive ...

Derrick the Deathfin

12-03-2012

There's one deal on PlayStation Plus this week that just seems too good to pass up. Starting tomorrow, Critter Crunch will be available for only $1.40. At that price there's almost no excuse not to be regurgitating color...

Under Defeat HD

11-28-2012

Helicopters are complex, unwieldy machines. In games, their difficulties are either flat-out ignored (Twin Cobra) or make for one of the steepest learning curves you’ll ever face (Battlefield 2). Under Defeat is a ba...

Okami HD

11-23-2012

Initially released for the PlayStation 2 in the autumn of 2006, Okami, Clover Studio's penultimate release, garnered significant critical acclaim but suffered from lackluster sales. Born unto the shadow of the recently launch...

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

11-22-2012

It seems as if Sherlock Holmes is more popular than ever; whether it's Robert Downey Jr.'s slow-mo charmer, Benedict Cumberbatch's gruff genius, or Johnny Lee Miller's American-based version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detect...

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

11-20-2012

Fitting that on the day of the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct, Sony attempts to remind everyone that the terribly named PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a game that exists. And it's not that it's a bad game, however...
