Flashback Review: What’s Old is… Still Kind of Old. Again.

There’s a legitimate argument to be made that rebooting a classic game franchise isn’t the valueless, naked cash grab we have with Hollywood (seriously, Sony Pictures? Spider-Man?). In addition to massive graphics improvement, controls have gotten better in both form factor and performance, sound is immeasurably improved, and you have the internet to explain to… Continue reading

Taking Offense: Monaco Fails at Forcing My Friends to Cooperate

This is just you and me talking, here, but I know we have the same problem. Our friends suck at video games. I, myself, am complete bad ass when I’m solo, but some games just cannot be handled alone. When I heard about the co-op heist game, Monaco, I was immediately nervous about playing it…. Continue reading

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

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

DuckTales Remastered has been teased as part of Capcom’s catalog at Pax EAST. Just watch the teaser… Continue reading

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is Single Player Co-Op for Your Thumbs

Starbreeze has made some of my most memorable and atmospheric first person shooter moments of the last decade (Riddick, The Darkness, Syndicate). It has something a bit different in store for its next game, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Brothers is a single player co-op experience where you will be controlling both characters at… Continue reading

Zen Studios Brings Star Wars Pinball to Pretty Much Everything Starting Feb 26th

Zen Studios broke through in a big way with us last year, even taking home a Grimmy in the process. I had written off digital pinball, but it’s is hard to argue with quality table designs in any form. Next week though, digital pinball is set to get an even wider audience to pay attention….

The Walking Dead Review: The Dead Can Feel

A game seldom comes along which strikes a chord deeper than just being entertained. The Walking Dead by Telltale Games delivers on a one-of-a-kind experience by reaching into your personal morality and advocates a new level of interactive storytelling. Episodic games are some of the more difficult games to master, and this holds especially true when it… Continue reading

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit Video Reflex Review: That’s Between a Bunny and His Duck

by with Comments Off on Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit Video Reflex Review: That’s Between a Bunny and His Duck

The crazy French developers at Arkedo Studio made a new game. That game is called Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit. It involves an undead cape-wearing rabbit (who is also the Prince of Hell) trying to recover stolen photos of him masturbating with a rubber ducky. Naturally, this game is a metroidvania-ish side scroller with… Continue reading

Radio Waves for 10/12/12

It’s a big release week for games. Even the people under rocks know that games came out this week and people want them. There’s quite a variety as the releases range from alien-domination sims to 8-bit retro action. Also Pokemon, but maybe that’s just my thing. Until my self-started husky-drawn taco delivery wagon idea becomes… Continue reading
