Puyo Puyo DA! (Dreamcast)

Puyo Puyo DA! review (DC)

Reviewed on October 20, 2006

As much as I enjoy the atmosphere, this game isn't going to create any new fans. The characters' behavior is amusing only because I already know how they're supposed to act. Without any dialogue or actual character-to-character interaction, Puyo Puyo Da fails to internally flesh out anything.

Gothic 3 (PC)

Gothic 3 review (PC)

Reviewed on October 17, 2006

It is up to you to chose a realistic path to tred; there are no clear-cut moral walkways that will guide you through the ravaged lands of Myrtana. Join the bandits, join the orcs or play both sides off against the other. You can even ignore them both -- until late in the game, you are free to use the factions in anyway you please.

Veggie Tales: LarryBoy and the Bad Apple (Game Boy Advance)

Veggie Tales: LarryBoy and the Bad Apple review (GBA)

Reviewed on October 17, 2006

LarryBoy and the Bad Apple is a game and needed to find some way to challenge players without forcing them into the evils of mindless slaughter. It found the solution to this quandary in the form of a time limit system. You donít die. Instead, youíre slowed by hazards like errant basketballs (in one early boss encounter that will remind you of Donkey Kong) or vegetables that have given into the Bad Appleís wicked ways.

I, Damiano (PC)

I, Damiano review (PC)

Reviewed on October 14, 2006

Somewhere in the midst of all this frivolity are cheery themes like wholesale genocide, illicit sex, and an epidemic of the Black Death; this is of course followed by folk dancing, because Damiano is a very complex individual.

Gokuraku! Chuka Taisen (TurboGrafx-16)

Gokuraku! Chuka Taisen review (TG16)

Reviewed on October 13, 2006

Yes, hero-boyís steed of choice as he enters the fray is a cloud. Now, if I was a mythological Chinese hero, Iíd prefer riding into battle on one of those cool-looking dragons those nutty folks are always worshipping or whatever, but to each his own, I guess.

Everyone recognizes the gaming brilliance that is Castlevania III Ė which is why Iím not going to bother reviewing it.

Tsuki ~Possession~ review (PC)

Reviewed on October 11, 2006

No one, and I repeat, no one said anything about urine, adult diapers, or enemas and their *ahem* forceful outbursts.

Caesar IV (PC)

Caesar IV review (PC)

Reviewed on October 09, 2006

If Caesar IV is better because it focuses on the smaller details, then itís also true that itís better because it forces you to do the same. You have to worry more about things like hygiene now. More importantly, you understand why that is in a tangible sense. When you neglect the bath houses, youíll see filth spreading through your city.

Just Cause (PlayStation 2)

Just Cause review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 05, 2006

When all these elements come together, you might actually be fooled into thinking Just Cause is a decent game. Don't. All is not what it seems.

Parasite Eve (PlayStation)

Parasite Eve review (PSX)

Reviewed on October 05, 2006

The main problem is that whenever Aya gets into a fight, the game has to load in the monsters, which takes a couple of seconds. During this time, the screen freezes and turns gray, essentially screaming, ďHey stupid! You are going to be in a fight. Gird those loins and start shooting!Ē

Haunted Castle (Arcade)

Haunted Castle review (ARC)

Reviewed on October 03, 2006

Donít hate Haunted Castle just because there arenít any candles to whip, the sub-weapons are totally lame, and Simon has blue hair. That would be silly. No, you should hate it because itís a sadistic monster that feeds off your suffering (and pocket change).

Enzai: Falsely Accused (PC)

Enzai: Falsely Accused review (PC)

Reviewed on October 01, 2006

I definitely enjoyed my time with Enzai. I actually played through every scenario and bled the story dry, because the dialogue and characters were so well-conceived. However, it's . . . embarrassing. It's a game where the hero gets raped over and over. By guys.

Cooking Mama (DS)

Cooking Mama review (DS)

Reviewed on October 01, 2006

All that Cooking Mama has to offer is cooking, cooking, and more routine cooking. The only real goal is to get perfect 100ís, but even then, the reward is yet another dish that utilizes the same cooking techniques and a little gold medal.

Amped 3 (Xbox 360)

Amped 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on September 30, 2006

You'll also find yourself hired by a Canadian sock-puppet to hunt down a yeti. After being filled in by your odd employer (who uses a sock puppet of his very own to characterise the yeti!) you'll have to chase the abominable snowman down a particularly treacherous slope, outscoring him as he pulls mad tricks on his own snowboard to secure his capture. He'll backflip off an icy ramp and land precariously on a rail which he'll grind down, popping off stunts as he goes. Do the same or be shown up by the missing link!

Mega Man X: Command Mission (GameCube)

Mega Man X: Command Mission review (GCN)

Reviewed on September 30, 2006

This isnít the first Mega Man RPG, but it is the first Mega Man RPG that hasnít used weird some weird card system or had grids to move around on or wasnít a blatant Pokťmon knockoff. In Command Mission you play as X, robot fighter extraordinaire, hunter of the rogue reploids known as Mavericks. If youíve been playing Mega Man X games for a while, you probably have this history memorized; from what I can tell, itís just a continuation of the main series. I wouldnít know because, again, Iím not good at the games and havenít dug deep into the storyline. And, again, I donít really need to. Command Missionís plot is extremely linear and self-contained.

Streets of Rage 2 (Genesis)

Streets of Rage 2 review (GEN)

Reviewed on September 29, 2006

And make no mistake ó losing the services of Adam was such a crushing blow to comrades Axel and Blaze that they needed to enlist TWO other vigilante crime fighters in an attempt to replace him. Skate is a skateboarder who Iíve never used or even considered using. Just look at the little pipsqueak and youíll understand. Max is a big, powerful guy who suffers from being the slowest-moving human being in the world. Sure, he can wade through Mr. Xís foot soldiers with ease, littering the city streets with broken bodies and shattered dreams, but put him against nimble, agile foes and things get ugly.

Bone: The Great Cow Race (PC)

Bone: The Great Cow Race review (PC)

Reviewed on September 28, 2006

A lot of notice was taken of Boneville's shortcomings and fixed up in this outing; while both games drip with a vibrant and goofy charm that will appeal to audiences young and old, the more sinister undertones that Jeff Smith's comics were so loved for have been allowed to further develop in this episode.

IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 26, 2006

No matter how excellently you race, your opponents will be right on your tail or just in front of you. Even if you crash and burn, you wonít lose track of them because the game just keeps you moving on its own. That leaves you free to explore IGPXís primary draw: big robot punches.
