Preview: The Adventures of Tintin: The Game

Aliens: Infestation is Metroid with Xenomorphs OH GOD!

SEGA's booth was fairly lavish this year, with huge signs, flashy lights, ladies dressed like Colonial Marines, and ... one fairly quiet man, wandering around with a DS. He was completely nondescript, fairly easy to miss, and could in fact ...

E3: Jimpressions of Shinobi 3DS

My love for Shinobi is palpable. I had one of those six-in-one Genesis cartridges as a kid, and The Revenge of Shinobi was one of the most played titles on the collection. I was never a big fan of the series' move to 3D last generation, so ...

PAX East: Hands-on with Resident Evil Mercenaries 3D

PAX East is over, which makes me sad. Thankfully, the show went out on a good note, at least for me. The last game I got to play at the show was Resident Evil Mercenaries 3D. If you've been following a long, you'll know that this is a game...

To those of you that asked about Radiant Historia

Sure, the DS is choked with cute platformers -- we all already know that. Still, when I hear that a game is coming our way that not appeal to my retro sensibilities, but also is being headed up by the same folks who took the lead on the exc...

Preview: Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011

I am not usually a fan of hunting games. Of course, shooting things is usually a fun activity, but not so much when the things you are shooting don't put up a fight. I'm always up for new twists on worn-out tropes though, so I was excited w...
