Jeff Green leaving 1UP, GFW Radio

In high school, I would read pc gaming magazines like a mofo, reading reviews about games my 486 66 Mhz PC could never play in 1999 (no, that's not a typo). Out of these, the cream of the crop was Computer Gaming World, a magazine with suc...

 
 
 
 

KOTOR--I'm Playing It Wrong?

Based on king3vbo's advice, I decided to give Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic a second spin on the 360. I have enjoyed some BioWare games in the past, particularly Icewind Dale, but found the quests on the first planet of KOTOR a bi...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Bionic Commando: Rearmed (360)-Impressions

Long time no blog--working full time and going to night school kind of does that to you sometimes. Regardless, like a dork, I woke up at 1:30 AM this morning to purchase a remake of a game that holds a very special place in my heart: Bioni...

 
 
 
 

Too Human Demo (360): Review

Too Human is an upcoming 360 game in the Diablo vein that has received its fair share of controversy. After an arduous development period lasting nearly a decade, a demo of the game is up for grabs. A crafty narrative blend of Norse my...

 
 
 
 

Batman Returns (SNES) (Review)

With the recent Dark Knight movie coming out, my memories drifted to one of the first SNES titles I owned--Batman Returns, a Final-Fight clone featuring the Caped Crusader himself. Apart from a few Batmobile levels, the game features an ...

 
 
 
 

Metal Gear Solid 4: Acts IV-Epilogue (Review)

So after some procrastination and a realization that my upcoming Paralegal night school program is going to slice into my gaming time like a hot knife through Hot Pockets, I sat down and finished off Metal Gear Solid 4 late last week. Read...

 
 
 
 

Metal Gear Solid 4: Acts I-III (Review)

So I've had a 80 GB MGS 4 PS3 Bundle since it was released and I still haven't quite finished the game. When it comes to beating games, I have a terrible track record. To put insult to injury, I've never beaten a Metal Gear Solid game des...

 
 
 
 

A cast of thousands: Trevor Belmont

It was the middle of the summer of 1991 in Centreville, Virginia. I would often wait around the house for a friend to show up so we could play Nintendo in the basement. Despite having a lack of two player games, we had fun with taking t...

 
 
 
 

My 1st Spore Creature: Quandorium

I was just messing around with the free demo of the Spore Creature Creator and came up with this little creature: Quandorium. The Creature Creator is a lot of fun, but I have no idea how the full game of Spore will be. Regardless, it is...

 
 
 
 

The Start of the Affair: Dragon Warrior

There had been others before--the wakka-wakka sounds from Ms. Pac-Man, the stunning drama of pixelated manga cut-scenes from Ninja Gaiden, and the futile attemps of having Mario survive a dip in the ocean with some Cheep-Cheeps from Super M...

 
 
 
 

Pixel Junk Monsters Demo (PS3): Impressions

With my recent PlayStation 3 purchase, I decided to venture into the limited pool of demos for the system and decided to give the demo of the much-hyped Pixel Junk Monsters a whirl. While it has a few neat spins on the web-based classic, i...

 
 
 
 

Civilization Revolution (360): Demo Impressions

Back in middle school, a friend of mine gave me a copy of the original DOS versoin Civilization for the PC. The turn-based gameplay was Sim City mixed with turn-based wargaming and took a while to learn, but was fun once you finally got in...

 
 
 
 

Warriors Orochi (PSP): Impressions

Before embarking on a recent vacation to St. Simons Island, GA, I swung by the local Gamestop to pick out a new portable game to keep me entertained on the flight: Warriors Orochi for the PSP. It is a good deal more enjoyable than one might...

 
 
 
 

Blizzard Digital Download Story: Part 1

Blizzard recently has slapped up 3 of their classic titles for digital download via their online store: The Starcraft Legacy (Starcraft + Brood War expansion), Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne (WC 3 expansio...

 
 
 
 

The Last Stand 2 (PC): Review

Word association is a funny thing-the results might be predictable, but every once in a while something jumps out of the blue. Pizza: pepperoni. X-Men: Wolverine. Casual games: zombies? The Last Stand 2, a free Flash game, manages to be an ...

 
 
 
 

Gamefly Gadfly #4: The Cancellation

The concept of Gamefly has so much promise-- it's the Netflix of videogames. With videogame rental prices at around $6 a pop, one thinks such a service would be useful. Too bad that Gamefly has failed to meet my expectations for one reason:...

 
 
 
 

Gamefly Gadfly #3: Patapon (PSP)

Patapon Patapon has been widely considered one of the best games out there for the PSP, so I decided to give it a whirl. Despite charming graphics, unique Real-Time Strategy meets Taiko Drum Master gameplay, and clever localization, Patapo...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Final Fantasy 7-Crisis Core: Review (Hours 2-5)

WARNING--Lots of Spoilers ahead?!?! Crisis Core is a game which improves by leaps and bounds once you complete the first "real mission" of the game and get access to a lot of side missions. Completing these are nice if you want to grind or...

 
 
 
 

Final Fantasy 7-Crisis Core: Review (Hour 1)

My first hour into Final Fantasy 7-Crisis Core for the PSP is fairly positive. Some random thoughts. SPOILER WARNING!? -- Zack is an upbeat main character who just wants to be a hero in SOLDIER. This is a surprise for a sci-fi themed Fina...

 
 
 
 

Final Fantasy 7-Crisis Core: Review (Hour 0)

This is it, the moment I've been waiting for. Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core is piping hot in my hands, ready to slide into the PSP. Is it going to be a fun spin-off or is it going to be a Dirge of Cerberus? I'm going to try to do an hour ...

 
 
 
 

Bully: Scholarship Edition (360): Impressions

A few months ago, a good friend of mine was raving about how fun Bully was on the PS2. Recently, I had a decent amount of store credit at Gamestop and decided to use it towards the recent port for the 360: Bully: Scholarship Edition. To my ...
