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

Spelunky Reflex Review: Loving Torture

Spelunky is a game that is far outside my level of skill, so much so that I’m quite confident I will never see it through to its conclusion. For most games, that would be  enough reason to set down your controller, take a deep breath and settle on something else from your library, something that… Continue reading

CastleStorm Game Curious Video: It Approaches

Justin mounts his ballista to defend the fabulous eyebrows of his king in CastleStorm. If he ever stops shooting his own troops, he may learn just how satisfying it can feel to crumble an actual castle. This video is intended for a mature audience as our commentary is not kid-friendly: For more Game Curious and… 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

Monaco Invites You and Your Co-op Crew on a Heist on April 24th

Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine was winning indie game awards way back in 2010. Not bad for a prototype. Monaco will have you build a crew of thieves from a set of 8 character classes to “case the joint” and complete the perfect heist that Hollywood will surely use to make its next great movie…. Continue reading

DuckTales Remastered is at PAX East

If you like DuckTales and really enjoyed the DuckTales game where you hop around in the guise of Scrooge McDuck, then I have a huge surprise for you (well I don’t, but the people that originally broke the story do). 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

Charlie Murder Thickens as Ska Studios Reports In

Just in case you were worried about Charlie Murder, Ska Studios has just checked in with an overview video and let’s just say the game is a bit more ambitious than the sneak peek we got back at PAX ’11. Chuck (can I call you Chuck?) and his crew have evolved into a “BrawlPG” complete… Continue reading

Radio Waves for 03/08/13

Video games are some of the most comfortable forms of escapism available at my fingertips. If I want to drive a taxi off a pier, I can play Grand Theft Auto. If I want to jump-kick a sightseer off a pier, I can play Sleeping Dogs. Seriously, the pier is just a dangerous place. In terms of… Continue reading
