Mortal Kombat X – Games of 2015

  Since I’m not really too into the fighting game scene, I have a lot of trouble figuring out how long the lifespan of a great fighting game should be. Mortal Kombat 9 is easily my favorite fighting game of all time. Honestly, I was ok with leaving that as my final MK experience. However,… Continue reading

Game Curious Mad Max – Literal Sand Box

I feel like I’ve been here before, but I’ve never actually been here. When something as influential as Mad Max takes decades off, its fans are going to fill in the gaps. There’s something about playing the real deal though, and Max has taken so many lessons from other great action games that he manages… Continue reading

Lollipop Chainsaw Review: Fun is my Favorite Flavor

Lollipop Chainsaw exposes our internal need for something a bit mindless and fun. In a time when games are going great lengths to become big blockbuster events, Lollipop is exactly the opposite. It knows its audience. It knows what it really is shooting for which is to give you a good time playing a video game…. Continue reading

Lollipop Chainsaw Game Curious Video: Just Add Sparkles

Lollipop Chainsaw and its ridiculous premise of a high school cheerleader zombie hunter with a chainsaw opens itself up to plenty of room for criticism. I do not much care for overanalysis of Grasshopper Manufacture’s stylistic decisions as I usually find them tongue-in-cheek and hilarious. I already know that I’m going to be comically entertained. What… Continue reading

Gotham City Impostors Takes DLC to a Whole New Level of Crazy

I’ve been watching the tale of Gotham City Impostors since about the time when the other Batman game came out and punched me right in the gullet. I’ve been decidedly on the fence about it as I’m unsure if the whacky premise will translate to a fun game that I, and my friends, will play. Since… Continue reading

Scribblenauts Remix Gets a Siri Remix

Scribblenauts Remix is a great game for simultaneously fostering one’s imagination and critical thinking skills, but upon getting Siri support through its latest update it will also be the game that makes casual gamers look like crazy people as they scream things like “purple dragon” and “robotic ninja” at their Apple device as a means of solving the… Continue reading

Batman: Arkham City Review: It’s the Bat

It used to be so much easier to review superhero video games. It was a well documented fact that you could count on all of them to be terrible. Then, Batman: Arkham Asylum came out of nowhere and not only immediately established itself as the greatest superhero video game of all time but entered the… Continue reading

Lollipop Chainsaw Contains Sex, Drugs, Rock ‘n Roll in Addition to Cheerleaders and Zombies

One view of the latest and most mature (by immature adult content standards) Lollipop Chainsaw trailer (above) should be enough to let you know whether or not Suda 51’s upcoming zombie action title is for you since it’s about as subtle as a chainsaw through your torso. The Grindhouse inspired trailer will either force you… Continue reading

Mortal Kombat Review: Brutal Bliss

I don’t consider myself particularly good at fighting games, nor do I consider myself a huge fan of the genre. What draws me into a fighting game is the action, the characters, and whether or not you feel like a bad ass when you win a match. That’s why Mortal Kombat has always appealed to… Continue reading
