Drew a Conclusion: You Don�t Know Jack HD

Those who find themselves drawn closer to the Saturday Night Live rendition of Celebrity Jeopardy, replete with the surly visages of Sean Connery and Burt Reynolds, than Trivial Pursuit will, odds are, have played Jellyvision�s You Don�t ...

 
 
 
 

Shut up and take my rupees

Hello! This is going to be a post about Ocarina of Time 3D, but first, an introduction. I've lurked the site regularly for a little while now and tend to stick with the front page, commenting on news posts. I'll be going to PAX for the fir...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Drew a Conclusion Review: Paper Wars HD

Once in a long while, there comes a game for an otherwise obtuse device that proves it capable of appealing to a community many would have initially suspected it was incapable of performing said task. For the iPad, titles like World of Go...

 
 
 
 

Review: Assassin's Creed Brotherhood

So, I finally got around to playing Assassin's Creed Brotherhood; managed to snag a used copy of it (with the DLC unclaimed!) for a fair price. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this one. When it was first announced I kind of rolled m...

 
 
 
 

Enslaved: A Thorough and (Slightly) Retro Review

I�m sure many of you glossed over Ninja Theory�s Enslaved: Odyssey to the West when it came out last October. I know I passed up its release in order to save some cash, but having finally gone back and played it I�d say it�s a shame that an...

 
 
 
 

Review - Child of Eden

Before reading this review, I would highly suggest you check out Rez HD on the Xbox Live Arcade if you haven't already. I'm going to make a lot of comparisons between Rez and Child of Eden below, as they're pretty mechanically similar (and...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The Video Game Micro Review

My friend talked me into doing something I never intended to do for the gaming community � write game reviews. There is no shortage of game reviews to find, whether professional or amateur. I don�t like giving scores to games, as they can e...

 
 
 
 

inFAMOUS 2 Review

With all of the talk about the setting, the new powers, and the holy $#!^ backlash to Cole's redesign and re-redesign, there was quite a bit of buzz surrounding the sequel to arguably one of the best Playstation 3 exclusives. inFAMOUS 2 ...

 
 
 
 

Pedobear Review: CHILD of EDEN

"Dude, Awesome." Child of Eden is the ultimate evolution of games like Space Harrier, Panzer Dragoon, and Rez. First, allow me to give you my take on Child of Eden's story: September 11th 2019, the first human is born on the Internatio...

 
 
 
 

Drew a Conclusion: Pulse

Music is always one of the few genres of games that have either been significantly underappreciated by a majority of the gaming community or created assembly line style only to be run into the ground by money hungry publishers. Pulse seem...

 
 
 
 

L.A. Noire - A Review of Storytelling

#1: Homefront Review

For veterans of the first person shooter, being ordered around is nothing to write home about and some of the subtler commands present within the genre have even come to represent a quasi-code of sorts. For example, stumbling across a cra...

 
 
 
 

Bargain bin - beat hazard.

Late To The Party- Splatterhouse (PS3)

I'm often pretty terrible at picking up games I am interested in or just flat out playing them. I have my own backlog of sorts that I still need to work through, so what "Late to The Party" is going to be is just sort of my own late reviews...

 
 
 
 

Fail List: Before You Die Edition

1-Hour Review: L.A. Noire
