Game: Super Mario Bros. (NES)
Posted: August 10, 2013 (06:35 AM)
I donít like it. I donít like Super Mario Bros. The original one. The one that everyone waxes over as that magical game that got them into gaming . . . or that advanced gaming beyond the wastes of Atari . . . or the game that brought color to black and white, changed Coke into Pepsi, caused Atlantis to submerge into the ocean, allow for life to exist on earth, and prove that, yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.

Game: Halo 4 (Xbox 360)
Posted: November 11, 2012 (04:48 AM)
343 really does a good job of illustrating emotion and feeling between Master Chief and Cortana. I wholeheartedly mean that. A more amateur take on the dynamic between Master Chief and Cortana would lead to their relationship feeling as cheesy and forced as my making light of the situation above. But through subtle movement and expression Ė and excellent voice acting Ė I felt compelled to see how their story would conclude with the hope that Cortana would come out her rampancy all right. Thi...

Game: Assassin's Creed III (Xbox 360)
Posted: November 04, 2012 (08:11 PM)
Shenmue on the Dreamcast was once the king of offering pointless, ďlife-likeĒ diversions to punctuate downtime in its main storyline. It offered Ryo Hazuki, the gameís protagonist, such tantalizing options like collecting toy figurines, drinking soda pop, and driving a forklift to make a living. That game first saw release in Japan in 1999. Now that it is 2012, Ubisoft Montreal, the makers of Assassinís Creed III, still have not come up with a better way to pass the time than by offering up m...

Game: Radiant Silvergun (Xbox 360)
Posted: October 22, 2012 (09:00 PM)
We really do live in fortunate times. Used to be that if you wanted to play a game like Radiant Silvergun, you had to own a Sega Saturn. Worse, you had to own a Japanese Sega Saturn or doll up your inferior North American console with a boot disc to get the darn thing to play. Now, thanks to Xbox Live Arcade, you donít have to do that. You donít have to own a stodgy video game consoles procured from some shady eBay urchin (our product *like new* A++++++++++++++), and you donít have to plop d...

Game: Resident Evil 6 (Xbox 360)
Posted: October 21, 2012 (07:26 PM)
I guess the enemy design is pretty cool for being imaginative, but the enemies employed by Resident Evil 6 are so different from the seriesí earlier installments that they may as well serve as the crux for an entirely different intellectual property all together. The zombies may have made a return, but theyíre flanked by a motley band of foes that range from Arkham Asylum foot soldiers to Graveler from Pokemon Red/Blue. Mid-way through Chrisís campaign, the enemies will abruptly change from gr...

Game: NiGHTS into Dreams (Xbox 360)
Posted: October 14, 2012 (10:46 PM)
The Sega Saturn is a go. Itís out at stores near you. Itís bigger, badder, and more uncut than any piddly PSX. It features Sonic Teamís, and therefore SEGAís, most state-of-the-art Sonic title. Itís called NiGHTS into Dreams. Itís so cutting edge, it bypasses traditional titular capitalization standards and offers full-blown 3D models to the tune of all that jazz. Many who own a Saturn come to own this game, or at least play it. To everyoneís satisfaction, NiGHTS becomes a must-hav...

Game: D (3DO)
Posted: August 21, 2012 (04:42 PM)
Tonight I bring you a review I had hoped never to write. I like to play my games before I pen something about them, but D left me with no such option. I donít mean to imply that I watched a trailer or read the blurb on the back of the box in lieu of getting my hands dirty with what D has to offer, but the truth in the matter is that no one has ever genuinely played this game. Not even Kenji Eno, whose name blankets the end credits as lead producer, writer, and music composer!

Game: Illbleed (Dreamcast)
Posted: August 19, 2012 (05:01 PM)
Illbleed drives me nuts. It offers 1000 ideas from 1000 different sources. Some of them are good. Most feel out of place. All of these ideas combine to give Illbleed a unique feel when compared to other games within the survival horror genre, as well as on the Dreamcast. Itís like the developers threw everything they could think of at a wall and hoped that only the best would stick. Problem is, everything stuck and nothing was cut out, causing Illbleed to become lumbering and illogical. I...

Game: Limbo (Xbox 360)
Posted: August 12, 2012 (05:58 AM)
I get the familial element thanks to scouring over Limboís title screen, which shows two dead bodies cast amid fly-ridden wreckage. By bringing in closure through finding this girl, it makes a sorrowful game like this a little easier to swallow. However, it would have been so cool, so unbelievably legitimizing to all the games out there that employed the ďlooping conceptĒ that it makes no sense to me why Limbo wouldnít do it here. I mean, c'mon, the game is called Limbo! Name me another game...

Game: Resident Evil 4 HD (Xbox 360)
Posted: August 05, 2012 (08:13 PM)
Not sure why anyone would ask the question ďshould I?Ē when the answer is so blatantly obvious. If you played Resident 4 for the Gamecube or PS2, you know itís worth picking up now remixed in HD because out of all the thousands of games that have been released since then and now, scarcely has a re-released been so warranted. Donít believe me? I think the evidence below speaks for itself:

Game: Resident Evil 4 (GameCube)
Posted: August 05, 2012 (08:05 PM)
OK, so maybe Leon Scott didnít get the warmest of welcomes when he uninvitingly waltzed into some cantankerous Spaniardís house. Youíd shoot any guy angry enough to charge at you with an axe, too. After all, Leon had only asked the man a seemingly innocent question on whether or not he had seen the Presidentís daughter, Ashley Graham. No matter. Clearly desperate times call for desperate measures.

Game: Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition (Xbox 360)
Posted: July 15, 2012 (01:25 PM)
Lost in Nightmares will take hardly more than an hour to complete, and itís really only a worthwhile investment if you really want to know how Jill got into the predicament that cast her as a Excella Gionneís personal bodyguard. Fighting the Guardians of Insanity, hulking grotesques armed with giant cudgels, feels more like something out of Silent Hill than Resident Evil, and putzing through a much-watered down version of the Resident Evil 1 mansion really only makes me realize that itís better...

Game: Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360)
Posted: July 15, 2012 (08:49 AM)
These tone-downs in difficulty actually serves as more of a reason to keep playing than not, surprisingly, and youíll come to find that even though the main quest in 5 isnít long at all, there are still plenty of reasons to continue playing long after youíve fired an RPG right into Weskerís face . . . as heís melting in a pool of lava . . . inside of a gigantic volcano . . . shouting at the top of his lungs, ďCHRIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!Ē

Game: Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition (Xbox 360)
Posted: July 14, 2012 (05:57 PM)
While Iíve played the game quite often from first obtaining it, I feel that there is still so much to do. My ambition from Minecraft doesnít extend to reaching any set goals. Rather, itís about looking forward to a journey that will take me beyond lava lakes and nether portals and into something far more withstanding Ė my own world. Made my way.
