Review: Unchained Blades

I'm not the biggest RPG nut, but over my last decade of gaming, I have appreciated most of the RPGs I've played. After starting on Pokemon, I've played a Final Fantasy or two, and even delved into Persona. But until rece...

Preview: Killing in motion in Splinter Cell: Blacklist

I've never been that big a fan of Splinter Cell, or at least the last-gen games that were clearly about stealth. There's nothing wrong with stealth, but a demo of the first game never clicked with me, so it was always a series I ignored. Th...

Preview: Assassin's Creed III Liberation is the real deal

As far as I'm concerned, there hasn't really been a portable Assassin's Creed worth playing. Despite the release of three story-based handheld games -- only one less than the console releases -- they have contributed nothing of value to the...

E3: Guacamelee! on Vita is bueno, but needs tweaking

For the past two months, I've been hearing good things about Guacamelee!, a colorful, luchador-themed Metroidvania game from DrinkBox Studios. Saying "Metroidvania" is usually good enough for me to be interested, but adding in wrestling mov...

E3: Gears of War: Judgment looks like more bloody fun

I promised myself that I wouldn't get excited for a new Gears of War game after the third installment wrapped things up. Maybe a game about the Pendulum Wars would be cool, but I thought I was pretty much done with fighting the Locust and ...

Preview: Learn to play guitar with BandFuse: Rock Legends
