Street Fighter 2010 (NES)

Street Fighter 2010 review (NES)

Reviewed on December 10, 2009

From the bottom of my heart, I believe this game is based on a true story. Of course, any mild-mannered human cannot grasp the possibility of this logic being real, but thankfully, you have me to explain the details. See, Ken, of Street Fighter fame, built a time machine and went back to the past, to warn the citizens of yesteryear about the impending hardships of the year 2010. He knew people would consider this crazy, however, especially since his time machine, which would have been the ultima...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360)

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on December 08, 2009

I don't claim to be a wizard with all types of armaments known to man. I don’t claim to have a vast knowledge of how combat tactics work either. That being said, I do understand numbers, human error, and other things of that nature. I bring this up because Modern Warfare seems to have a grasp on how numbers 1 and 2; it falls flat on its face with number 3.

Might & Magic II (Apple II)

Might & Magic II review (APP2)

Reviewed on December 05, 2009

Might and Magic II overcompensates wildly for its predecessor's insane difficulty, and the poetry even scans and rhymes. With more organized and rewarding side quests, you won't notice how stupid the two new character classes are. The formula remains intact: FPRPG, five towns, several castles with quests, dungeons that may or may not be relevant, and all manner of weird nooks that give items or raise attributes--temporarily or permanently. While it's not appreciably bigger than the original, MM2...

Viking: Battle for Asgard (PlayStation 3)

Viking: Battle for Asgard review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 03, 2009

Gruesome. In a word, it's what Viking: Battle for Asgard strives to achieve. A rival viking stumbles dead after the cut of your blade, an 'X' icon next to his still upright corpse. There's a difference between slaughter and sending a message. You could let his body fall by the wayside, focusing on the flock advancing. Or you could warn the impending legion of their doom. Tap that 'X' in time and watch as Skarin mercilessly gores the deceased on his blade before decapitating the mini...

Chocobo's Dungeon 2 (PlayStation)

Chocobo's Dungeon 2 review (PSX)

Reviewed on December 02, 2009

“Chocobo’s Dungeon 2” starts out very well, with chipper music and some exchanges between a chatty moogle and his mute chocobo cohort. Don’t know what a moogle or chocbo are? Then this game isn’t for you. Actually, this game isn’t for a lot of people, you’re just the first group to be filtered out. Next group: People who can’t stand cutesy art. This game is so syrupy, it’ll put cavities in your eyes. Out with you, now.

DJ Hero (Xbox 360)

DJ Hero review (X360)

Reviewed on December 02, 2009

Activision hasn't had the best of track record (double entendre) when it comes to music games. They bought the rights to Guitar Hero when Harmonix left the franchise to make Rock Band, and from there the Hero franchise has been a downward slope. I had given up hope when Guitar Hero World Tour came out, and laughed at how badly the Hero franchise wanted to be Rock Band.

Dragon Age: Origins (Xbox 360)

Dragon Age: Origins review (X360)

Reviewed on December 01, 2009

Dragon Age: Origins is grand in every sense of the word. The land of Ferelden and its associated legends and lore create a strong, if slightly predictable, high-fantasy setting that will quite easily consume in excess of forty-hours. As the land prepares for an imminent blight – an invasion of twisted creatures known as darkspawn – your character is recruited into the legendary order of the Grey Wardens, warriors from all walks of life who have came to the world’s aid in blights past.

Bust-A-Move Live! (Xbox 360)

Bust-A-Move Live! review (X360)

Reviewed on November 30, 2009

I've played plenty of puzzle titles over the decades, like Tetris, Columns, Tube-It, Kunio no Oden, Puyo Puyo, Klax, Baku Baku Animal... I could go on for the entire paragraph. Out of all the games I've played, however, there is one puzzle title that I enjoy the most: Bust-A-Move 2. As with most puzzlers, the gameplay in this one is really simplistic, asking the player to clear each map of designs consisting of bubbles of many colors, which you do by matching up three bubbles of the same color. ...

Modern Warfare 2 (PlayStation 3)

Modern Warfare 2 review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 26, 2009

War doesn't change a damn thing no matter how noble the cause, especially during these times in the so-called, "War on Terror." Take out one evil and another more evil one takes its place. The ones who die become martyrs. Their bloodshed gives breed to new followers. War is a convoluted power struggle where yesterday's enemies will become tommorow's allies or something like that..

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 review (APP2)

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 ...

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.

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 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. ...
