MagnaCarta 2 (Xbox 360)

MagnaCarta 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 24, 2009

Disclaimer: For the purpose of this review, I will refer to Magna Carta 2 as a JRPG. I am aware that it is Korean, but if the shoe fits, this game fucking wears it like a champ.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time review (N64)

Reviewed on November 24, 2009

Isn't it ironic how the "Greatest video game ever made" was supposed to put Nintendo back on top, but instead led them to their inevitable downfall? Despite becoming the most commercially successful Zelda game to date with more than 7 million copies sold worldwide, in addition to being mentioned on virtually every "best of" list imaginable from critic and gamer alike, not even Ocarina of Time could save the Nintendo 64 from suffering humiliation at the hands of Sony. The 'Big N' who once ...

New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii)

New Super Mario Bros. Wii review (WII)

Reviewed on November 22, 2009

Anarchy. That’s all the Mushroom Kingdom has ever known…and it’s Princess Peach’s fault. It’s been decades since she’s taken the throne, and she’s got nothing to show for it. Her fungi-ridden subjects are forced to live in the squalor of tiny, mushroom-shaped shacks. The economy is in shambles; all the money is trapped inside blocks or floating beyond anyone’s reach. But the worst part? Her utter lack of concern. Peach’s failings would be understandable if she were evil and selfish. But she just...

The Bard's Tale III: Thief of Fate (Apple II)

The Bard's Tale III: Thief of Fate review (APP2)

Reviewed on November 22, 2009

I'm fortunate enough to have enjoyed Bard's Tale III (BT3) twice and in different ways. As a teen fanboy, I reaped the benefits of destroying far too many Dream Mages in BT2.

Wizard's Crown (Apple II)

Wizard's Crown review (APP2)

Reviewed on November 21, 2009

Well before sports websites existed, I loved live box-scores. The top-down RPG Wizard's Crown used a feature called Quick Combat. Easy fights required no work. Tough battles could see-saw with each combatant knocked unconscious. I'd cheer as the chief enemy went down or groan as he killed my last three players. Sometimes my super fighter with the Frost Greatsword held off the last four enemies. Or I'd gain an important magic item and forget how morale loss affected my party, making for a ...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360)

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 17, 2009

As I write this, I am giddy with delight. I’ve just beaten Modern Warfare 2 for the third time in the week since its release, and I want to tell you everything about it. I want to tell you about the twist one-third of the way through the story that puts a devastating and far more personal touch on the war against the Russian Ultranationalists. I want to tell you about the controversial assignment in which players go undercover as one of the head villain's cronies and are forced to answer ...

inFAMOUS (PlayStation 3)

inFAMOUS review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 16, 2009

I was always a fan of the Ultimate Spiderman game. Even after I finished it, I would start it up simply for the purpose of jumping off high buildings and web-slinging away at the last minute. It was pure, unadulterated fun. I could not wait, then, when I heard of inFamous. Having invested roughly thirty hours in the game, I can say those comparisons are warranted in some respects and not so much in others.

Stratovox (Arcade)

Stratovox review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 16, 2009

Historians will note that Stratovox was the first game to use synthesized voice. Long forgotten behind this trivia is the unforgiving game time forgot. My initial impression of Stratovox, you ask?

Antarctic Adventure (Colecovision)

Antarctic Adventure review (CVN)

Reviewed on November 15, 2009

Konami's Antarctic Adventure is a devilishly challenging title, an addicting yet frustrating arctic hustle content to be as cold as the icy continent. Tasked with visiting arctic bases under the strictest of time constraints, the plucky Penta the Penguin will have his hands full dodging fissures in the ice and smiling sea lions all along his way. Both happen to be harmless. Sea lions pop out of fishing holes only to send Penta back a few paces while any icy crevice is shallow enough to...

Demon's Souls (PlayStation 3)

Demon's Souls review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 15, 2009

The castle reeks of death. The path leading up to the main gate is littered with corpses. Maggoty, stinking bags of flesh left to rot where they fell. The horses, too. Their bodies were ripped open, with their loads and carts broken on the cobblestone. The crows are already at their flesh; pickings in Boletaria have been very good lately. The inside of the castle is worse. That gaping entrance leads into a seemingly endless black abyss, as if it were the mouth of some otherworldly beast. ...

Borderlands (Xbox 360)

Borderlands review (X360)

Reviewed on November 12, 2009

Borderlands was a very anticipated game that alot of people couldn't wait for. I was one of them. For a first person shooter/RPG, it was definitely worth the wait.

Gorf (Colecovision)

Gorf review (CVN)

Reviewed on November 09, 2009

The Galactic Orbiting Robot Force, better known as Gorf, has its sights set on our humble Earth for its next conquest, its alien fleet traveling through a space warp and descending on the planet in a uniform march. Something must be done. Confronted with such threats before, the Earth people have learned. Before they would commission one pilot to watchguard the planet, roving the lower atmosphere as descenders continued to fall. But ceaseless Space Invaders would never stop com...

Tekken 6 (PlayStation 3)

Tekken 6 review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 07, 2009

Jin Kazama has turned evil. It was inevitable, even if it seemed unlikely. You’d never think he’d actually go through with it - he’s practically a saint compared to some of the other characters - but the temptation was too great. Jin has taken control of the Mishima Zaibatsu, but he’s not interested in using it for the sake of justice or peace. Instead, he used the corporation to build an unbeatable army and intends to conquer the world with it. He’s accomplished more than any of his predecessor...

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology (PSP)

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology review (PSP)

Reviewed on November 06, 2009

Fan service games can easily be forgiven for being mediocre if they at least pull off their intended gimmick well enough. Unfortunately, Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology fails on this basic principle, meaning the fans are left with a sub-par game.

Hearts of Iron III review (PC)

Reviewed on November 05, 2009

I like numbers, I really do. Numbers can do all sorts of interesting and wonderful things. Numbers tell architects how tall their skyscrapers can be before collapsing. Numbers let you find your friend's house with a GPS when normally you'd be lost. Numbers govern telephones, crosswalks, and of course the INTERNETS. Numbers, and here's my favorite part, form the basis of our understanding of the universe itself.

Big Bang Mini (DS)

Big Bang Mini review (DS)

Reviewed on November 05, 2009

Writing about Big Bang Mini in five hundred words is a little like creating a football-playing octopus spliced with DNA from Beckham and Pele, dropping a sack of balls at its boot-clad tentacles then confining it to a four-foot cubed room. You need a certain depth, a certain room to breathe, to fully appreciate the unfolding insanity. Otherwise, all you get is muddy footprints on the wallpaper.

Order of War (PC)

Order of War review (PC)

Reviewed on November 04, 2009

First off I should say that I find “Order of War” quite a versatile thing. I mean it will be ok for many types of gamers: newbie in RTS, hardened players and history buffs. I consider myself an ordinary gamer with interest in shooters, RTSs and WWII. Maybe this is the reason why I love this game: for me it’s a great mixture of tactical RTS peppered with some shooter features. The game is really addictive and fun to play, probably due to its dynamism and simplified controls. Still however, devel...

Mr. Do!'s Castle (Colecovision)

Mr. Do!'s Castle review (CVN)

Reviewed on November 03, 2009

Taking to heart the accusation that their first title in the series, Mr Do!, was merely a copy of Dig Dug, developer Universal made certain that Mr. Do's Castle bore nary a resemblance to the Atari creation. For instance, in this spirited follow-up, Mr. Do finally surfaces, no longer weaving through underground networks mined out of wavy yellow and green checkered earth. A light bulb clicked on during one of the design team meetings -- "Our hero is a clown, not a gopher!" ...

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII review (PSP)

Reviewed on November 02, 2009

Crisis Core is a shallow game, rarely giving you a chance to deviate from the main story and explore, as the story whisks you from one chapter to the next at an incredible pace.
