Review: Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is one of the PS2 classics I remember well enough to know I played it, but have let almost every other detail escape from my mind. Eurocom and THQ's Zelda-like set in ancient Egypt was a fun attempt at a new...

The 'Stranger Things' in my game collection

There are some seriously weird games out there – this is what you quickly learn when you start collecting them, even with a focus on specific consoles. There's always at least one or two developers, big or small, that like to take ser...

Note to self: Replay Rez at least once a year

On the rare occasion I use my Xbox 360, I'm amazed the thing still works. It's laughably slow to boot up, full of games as it is, and having gone through several broken systems last generation, there's a lingering fear that this could be it...

Sony celebrates 20 years of PlayStation with a video

Devil Dice! I wonder if I can find my original disc. And, hey, Sony actually acknowledging the Vita (also advertising the pink one on their Japanese YouTube page)! Less good than making more games for it, but, you know. Plus that Grav...

Songs for the dearth: Classic music games to fill the hollow

With a new Amplitude on the horizon and a post-Guitar Hero world having left much to be desired by way of rhythm games, we must look to the past to drink our fill from the fount of the world of music. And even before Guitar Hero spoon-fed t...
