3 on 3 NHL Arcade (Xbox 360)

3 on 3 NHL Arcade review (X360)

Reviewed on March 27, 2009

3 on 3 NHL Arcade is a great idea. The latest EA hockey game, NHL 09, has shed some pounds over the winter with a diet that cuts out all of the realism and simulation that devoted fans have come to expect from the perennial franchise. Our overall roster weighs in at a slim 40 players and two teams. Thereís no room for stats, or much in the way of personality, here. Thatís not to say that 3 on 3 NHL Arcade forgets to include any new content.

Robotica (Saturn)

Robotica review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 24, 2009

For a first-generation Saturn title, Robotica started out quite promising with its cool intro. Hell, it wasn't very grainy and in full screen! As scenes of three robots, named Laocorns, heading towards a fortress, which was attached to an asteroid, and hovering over Earth, were being shown, a narrator was explaining the story. In a nutshell, the World Silent Security Service has been monitoring every single thing that has happened on Earth for the past 8...

Fahrenheit review (SCD)

Iíve been gaming long enough to know what I enjoy. Itís not like there are certain games Iím not into just because Iím unaware of them Ė the genres I donít play, I donít play for a reason.

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Xbox 360)

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga review (X360)

Reviewed on March 23, 2009

LEGO Star Wars is not an easy game to describe with words. I can remember reading a few reviews for the LEGO games that have popped up in the last few years, and from them, all I understood was that the game was funny. I can even remember walking up to an in store demo of LEGO Star Wars, and not having the faintest clue what to do. I bought this game at bargain bin price, not knowing what to expect, except for a few laughs.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors (Genesis)

Zombies Ate My Neighbors review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 21, 2009

I found this game randomly while searching for something interesting to play. Its sheer strangeness attracted my inquisitive mind. I didnít realize just how odd it would be, though. If the subtle allusions to other horror icons donít draw interest, the utter weirdness will. After all, how many games have you fighting a giant baby that squirts you with its milk bottle and squishes you flat when it stomps on you?

No More Heroes (Wii)

No More Heroes review (WII)

Reviewed on March 21, 2009

In reviewing No More Heroes, itís a natural instinct to compare the game to its spiritual predecessor, Killer7, but that wonít get you anywhere. The two games share a similar cel-shaded visual style and are both products of Suda 51, but thatís the extent of their similarities, save for the identical reactions they inspired from me: I donít know what it is, but I like it.

Watchmen: The End Is Nigh (PC)

Watchmen: The End Is Nigh review (PC)

Reviewed on March 21, 2009

Iíve decided that itís pointless to judge Watchmen: The End Is Nigh as a genuine narrative addition to the Watchmen saga, because of course it fails. The graphic novel is considered the height of the medium by nearly anyone who reads it, and was penned by Alan Moore, one of the greatest writers of the last century; the game was made for no reason other than to cash in on the mainstream success that the license only just obtained a couple of weeks ago with the movie. Youíve seen thi...

Unsolved Crimes (DS)

Unsolved Crimes review (DS)

Reviewed on March 18, 2009

This night seemed to beg for a horrific murder. The power had been knocked offline for a couple of hours, and the storm was still raging. Rain had blown inside through the broken window Ė the killer's alleged escape route Ė and drenched the victim's dress and shoes. They were the only solid remnants of the young woman left in the dingy motel room. Her naked corpse had already been taken away, or at least, the mutilated pieces of it. Scattered chalk markings showed where each of her limbs ha...

Ultima: Quest of the Avatar review (NES)

Reviewed on March 17, 2009

RPGs have always been about trying to combine disparate genres into a seemingly endless cycle of nerdier and nerdier products. It started when a bunch of guys sat down, threw some board games and copies of Tolkien on a table, and ended up with Dungeons & Dragons, which resulted in some other guys sitting down, throwing D&D rules in with computer programming manuals and creating Wizardry. RPGs have been combined with every conceivable genre, from first-person shooters (The Elder Scrol...

Dead Head Fred review (PSP)

Reviewed on March 17, 2009

Sometimes, when my life is overtaken by drudgery, I like to think about how it would be if video games were colours that you could mix together to get an entirely different hue. For instance, what kind of a shade would we get by combining Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones with a layer of Metal Gear Solid slapped on top of a canvas made from Splinter Cell? Would it be utter manliness set against ancient societies, Nazis, political intrigue and whips, or would it be a feste...

Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles (DS)

Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles review (DS)

Reviewed on March 16, 2009

Because of humorous mystery games like Phoenix Wright, you may have forgotten that murder is a serious business. Jake Hunter is here to remind you of the harsh reality. Under the name Jinguji Saburo, the private detective has been solving crimes in Japan for over twenty years. Rebranded for North America, Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles revisits three of his earliest cases. Unfortunately, you'll be following his footsteps rather than stepping into his shoes. A lack of real i...

MadWorld (Wii)

MadWorld review (WII)

Reviewed on March 16, 2009

Thereís a man dying in front of you. Blood is pouring out of his torso like a fountain, and the gash across his gut is deep enough to suck. Heís staring at you with wide, agony-stricken eyes, screaming at you for help. Thereís not a lot of time, so you have to act quickly. There are several ways to approach this, though. You could just let him die. But thatís not what your sponsor wants, what the fans expect, or the what the rules imply. Besides, itís justÖ boring. So what will it be? A s...

Wii Fit (Wii)

Wii Fit review (WII)

Reviewed on March 15, 2009

It would seem that Nintendo's master plan has finally come full circle. After fattening up their user base over the last 20 years, they've finally released their own antidote: Wii Fit. I was given Wii Fit for Christmas in a not-so-subtle hint that I need to lose some weight. Thankfully, demand for Wii Fit is still high, so I was able to sell it recently and buy a real game instead.

Resident Evil 5 (PlayStation 3)

Resident Evil 5 review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 14, 2009

Innovation doesnít have to be good, right? That was what I first thought when I played Resident Evil 4. I was one of those few people who didnít like the way that the game took the Resident Evil (Or Biohazard, if you prefer) series. Despite this attitude, I must admit that I enjoyed Resident Evil 4, perhaps not as a Resident Evil game, but as a shooter. When Resident Evil 5 was announced, I was one of those people who prayed, unrealistically, that it would return the series back to the old schoo...

Gears of War 2 (Xbox 360)

Gears of War 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on March 14, 2009

It took me around a week to finish the original Gears of War, while I managed to complete the sequel in less than twenty-four hours. Itís not that I was in any rush to beat Gears of War 2 (I wasnít) or that the sequel is at all shorter than its predecessor (if anything, itís a little longer). The game is so intense, so utterly captivating from title screen to end credits, that I had no choice but to keep playing. Its hold on me was that strong.

Spot Goes to Hollywood (Saturn)

Spot Goes to Hollywood review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 10, 2009

Cool Spot was a game I never played that much, especially back when it was released for the Sega Genesis. However, despite that, it still managed to leave a lasting impression on me. Whenever I think of the game, one of the first things I automatically remember is the opening, where Spot, a red dot with shades, the 7 UP mascot, jumps in and out of the SEGA logo, which is shortly followed by Spot pushing the giant Virgin Interactive logo on screen, all by himself. Then, finally, the title screen ...

Castlevania: Dracula X (SNES)

Castlevania: Dracula X review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 09, 2009

I donít make any pretensions to be a hardcore gamer, but I really love the Castlevania series. It doesnít hold any nostalgic value for me as I was a relative latecomer to the series. I dabbled in the NES entries for a bit, but I didnít fall in love until playing Symphony of the Night. It was from here that I started to seek out other games in the series, which led to my playing Castlevania: Dracula X for the Super Nintendo. It remains one of the most enjoyable 2D action games I have ever played...

Let me take you back to my first year of college at the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington (I know youíd probably rather not be taken to Tacoma, but bear with me). The year was 2002. Life was simpler back then. You didnít have to own three home consoles and two hand-held systems to round out your gaming experience.
