Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Rated Review: Standard Setting Cyber-Expansion

To say I was excited when I first saw the trailer for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon would be an understatement; blowing a load would be far more accurate. Yet this blown load wasn’t the normal load I’ve been known to blow in regards to the medium of electronic entertainment. This was a load that… Continue reading

Starseed Pilgrim Game Curious Video: Plant or Fall

Exploration, music, and planting blocks on blocks on blocks. If you are lucky you’ll find some keys before you fall into the abyss, as long as “The Nothing” doesn’t get you first. Justin gets lost exploring the world of Droqen’s Starseed Pilgrim, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. This video is intended for a… Continue reading

Cry of Fear Reflex Review: I’m Out

I’ve always been under the impression that I enjoyed scary games, going as far to criticize modern survival horror for forgetting their roots and galloping down the action aisle. After playing Cry of Fear for about an hour last week, I’ve come to the realization that I like the idea of horror games way more than I… Continue reading

God Mode Reflex Review: As Simple as Exploding a Skeleton Warrior

I have to admit that I probably wouldn’t have picked up God Mode if a.) Justin Lacey didn’t suggest it and b.) it was more than $9.99. That being said, I’m glad that those two conditions contributed to my latest purchase as God Mode is a pretty good example on how to do a budget game right…. Continue reading

Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves Reflex Review: Planning Makes Perfect

I may not look it, but I’m a red-blooded American man through and through. I like beer, burgers and fighting mythological creatures with traps and lumberjack related skill sets. That’s why when I first saw Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves on Steam Greenlight, I showed extreme excitement with both my facial expressions and my private areas…. Continue reading

Video Game Memory Leak: Donkey Kong

Everyone knows Donkey Kong. I thought I knew Donkey Kong before King of Kong reignited everyone’s appreciation for the classic arcade game. Apparently, I never got very far in the game because the big monkey had a few surprises for me when we got reacquainted recently for a week long company arcade tournament. The hammer… Continue reading

Resident Evil 6 Review: Great Friends, Decent Game

Resident Evil 6 is what I’d call a beautiful mess. While some of the design choices seem to have been decided upon via mechanical descriptions pinned to a dart board, the resulting package never disappoints when it comes to over-the-top action featuring scenarios that only the bravest of heroes could endure. If that isn’t enough,… Continue reading

More! Battlefield! Metal Gear Solid! Trailers!

GDC is certainly bringing the noise this year, surprisingly so for the most introspective of the major industry conferences. Of course when you have new tech, who wouldn’t want to show it off. EA and Konami certainly do so after feigning surprise at their worst kept secrets let’s bask in the explosive glow of a… Continue reading
