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...

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...
