A fun, if disingenuous experience.

Deathsmiles II X (Xbox 360)

Deathsmiles II X review (X360)

Reviewed on December 24, 2012

Released on the Xbox 360 as a retail title in Japan, it did not meet the same fate elsewhere, dooming it, like so many standalone shoot-em-ups these days, as an NTSC J exclusive. However, the Cave-developed horizontal shooter still managed to find an outlet in the most interesting of places: Xbox Live's Games on Demand US service.

Elements of Destruction review (X360)

Reviewed on December 21, 2012

Getting laid off sucks, especially if you've dedicated 60 years of your life to a company. As the employer, there has to be a certain finesse to breaking the news to said person... hopefully.

Silent Hill (PlayStation)

Silent Hill review (PSX)

Reviewed on December 20, 2012

Silent Hill draws a map of the human psyche and at the edge of that map places a sign reading “Here be Monsters.”

Trance out to some bopping electronic music and wipe the floor with thugs.

Batman Returns (Genesis)

Batman Returns review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 10, 2012

I somehow mistook Batman Returns' gloomy cold opening, where the Caped Crusader fights his way to the top of a building and failing to save the Ice Princess from a plunge, as a sign that this side-scrolling platformer might be good.

NightSky (3DS)

NightSky review (3DS)

Reviewed on December 09, 2012

Sometimes, the levels will blur together and proceed quickly, with little to no challenge. When the ball gets to rolling swiftly through these areas, you're offered a free and spirited look into the essence of Nightsky. It has come together; it meshes. I think NightSky would have been better suited not to be a puzzler; instead, perhaps it shouldn't have been a game at all, but rather an interactive story. Nicalis clearly knows how to tug at your heart, as all of the game's flaws will assured...

Resident Evil 6 (PlayStation 3)

Resident Evil 6 review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 04, 2012

Somewhere amidst the zombies, the parasites, the secret organizations, Resident Evil has lost itself. You can tell that Capcom wanted Resident Evil 6 to be big; an homage to sixteen years of fandom. The problem is, they don’t know who they are appealing to any more.

Execution is everything, and IO Interactive followed their own motto with this crafty piece of software.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 review (3DS)

Reviewed on December 02, 2012

Some people may be turned off by the game's seemingly flamboyant disregard for real change, but if you like Mario before, there's little reason to dislike this game.

Mario Bros. (Arcade)

Mario Bros. review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 30, 2012

For every time that I adapted to a situation, the game established new methods to disturb my equilibrium. For instance, it introduced new opponents like flies and crabs, the latter of which required two bumps to incapacitate. Dealing with those two, though, wasn't nearly as challenging or frustrating as navigating icy floors, which made the already-slick control response more difficult to work with.

Halo 4 (Xbox 360)

Halo 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 19, 2012

Thankfully, Halo 4's War Games excels with its improvements and tinkering to provide tremendous amounts of replay value. I haven't had this much fun with a Halo multiplayer since vanilla Halo 3, back in 2007.

The Wonderful End of the World (PC)

The Wonderful End of the World review (PC)

Reviewed on November 18, 2012

At best, copying so much of a game could be argued as an homage. At worst, it's lazy, insincere and cheap, calling to mind generic brand food found in most supermarket

Duke Nukem Forever (Mac)

Duke Nukem Forever review (MAC)

Reviewed on November 13, 2012

No game can justify fourteen years of development and DNF is no different. If you see this game out for cheap in a Steam sale, it’s an entertaining singe-player game that, while often cringingly crude, is a respite from the more ‘realistic’ online-shooters like Call of Duty.

Halo 4 (Xbox 360)

Halo 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 11, 2012

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 – and excellent voice acting – I felt compelled to see how their story would conclude with the hope that Cortana would come out her rampancy all right.

Assassin's Creed III (Xbox 360)

Assassin's Creed III review (X360)

Reviewed on November 04, 2012

Shenmue on the Dreamcast was once the king of offering pointless, “life-like” diversions to punctuate downtime in its main storyline. It offered Ryo Hazuki, the game’s 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 Assassin’s Creed III, still have not come up with a better way to pass the time than by offering up m...

Avoid Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days like you would a slavering rabies-infested hound, unless you want to see just how depressingly bad a modern videogame can be.
