From a playability standpoint this game is really long, some 52 levels I believe it was. I don’t even know what the final time stamp was on the game, but it took about 3-4 days of solid sessions, basically time you actually commit to playing a game cause you need X amount of hours to play and progress far enough. Having watched/played a bit of the stages of Castlevania, then beating Fist ... Read More!
Average game is average, news at 11. It’s a C game, it’s a 65-73% game on the % scale. Was it fun to play? Absolutely. Was it a bit repetitive? For sure. Is there a lot of replay? Hell yes. This game truly appeals to the fan and that’s the draw. I’ve waited for a game like this for a very long time and it’s made me want to re-watch Fist of the North Star I beat ... Read More!
This is a good game. However that in itself is it’s problem. Remember when I said this game at moments felt like God of War, but never reached that pinnacle of being as good or better, but it would have moments. It’s like climbing a hill and you’re right at the top, just there, maybe 1-2 steps away but for the life of you, you can’t reach the top. Something always ... Read More!
I picked up Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage for the PS3. The game was monotonous at first, slow paced but it’s become more fun as I upgrade along. It’s basically Dynasty Warriors with The Fist of the North Star skin. There is more to it, I had to unlock coop which I haven’t even touched yet and was the main reason I got the game for my brother and I to sit down button ... Read More!
Microsoft made a mistake. Not the first time, and not something that will cripple them, but it’s a mistake nonetheless. I don’t buy into the whole “you are the controller” thing. I know some people are going bat crazy over the whole thing, but I will not submit. I actually stopped by to see the guys waiting in line the day before launch. Truthfully, I wasn’t at ... Read More!
I don’t like the idea of Super Street Fighter 4. Period. I like the game well enough, but I hate the idea of its existence. The game is a remixed, refined, re-released version of Street Fighter 4, what’s not to like? The fact that the game wasn’t DLC is one reason, and the fact that the additions aren’t as re-defining as one would hope given the time between the release between the ... Read More!
Beautiful looking game, scenery and art direction is really nice. Some of the character designs, mainly the love interest in wonky especially given everyone else. It has a Guillermo Del Toro feel with some of the creatures which was actually bizarre, refreshing but also kind of copy cat. The epic feel of the soundtrack is nice, it’s consistent and the levels seemed varied so far. Only ... Read More!
The upcoming Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare pack is coming and I just don’t know how to contain the excitement. Red Dead Redemption was a pleasant surprise for me (check out my impressions) and now a new reinvigorating DLC is coming for the game that is just begging for me to evict NBA2K 11 from my PS3. Now if only Sony or MS could sponsor some ‘Episodes’ for this game ... Read More!
I didn’t even know that there was a Captain America game coming out. I mean, I should have assumed because you would have to be a pretty low profile Marvel movie to not get a tie-in game. REAAL Low. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised to see stumble across the game at Comic con. I must admit, I get the impression that they started development on this game sometime in the last 12 ...

This past weekend I had the pleasure of playing one of my guilty pleasures, Marvel VS Capcom 3. I was like a kid in the candy store as I stood around the booth and glanced at all the other players. It was bit crowded for my taste, but it was worth standing in line. What I liked most from their booth was the mini-contest going on as everyone stood on this long line to play on the big screen with ... Read More!
This game looks beautiful; it tries to be epic and comes off feeling like I’m playing Lord of the Rings. Lighting and sound seemingly have high production values. Multiple settings and really nice art direction, I saw a snowy castle, a dark forest, night and day areas, very Lord of the Rings but not as shitty as a game as a LOTR game. I’m interested in this game based on the Hideo ... Read More!
