Review: Rogue Warrior [PS3]

February 26, 2010 1 comment

Not as fun as this lone-soldier...

Intro:
I am a glutton for punishment. Let me start with that. I hear something like, “IGN gave this game a 1.5.”, I reply with “Sign me up!” I think I’m attracted to bad games because it really makes you appreciate good, and even average games, that much more. But enough of that. On paper, Rogue Warrior sounds awesome! It’s developed by Rebellion (who developed Aliens vs. Predator), and published by Bethesda (think Fallout 3). So we start with a good pedigree, right? It’s based on the adventures of a SPECOPS soldier, whose team went down, and he was behind enemy lines, alone. HELL YEAH! So what could be wrong with this then?

News: Super Mario Galaxy 3 Coming Soon!

February 24, 2010 Leave a comment

How soon you ask? Like, May 23 soon!

I thought this was a little odd, as I figured they would save the Mario game for Christmas but then it dawned on me that Mario games will sell no matter when they released. Sucks for kids who only get games on their birthday and Christmas!

My prediction now is new Zelda Wii as their Christmas release.

Review: Aliens vs. Predator [PS3]

Intro:
This, too, will be a little different. I am going to split this review up per campaign, and give some pros and cons of each, and then touch on multiplayer at the end. To start, though, if you are a fan of the franchise, or Aliens, or Predators, you are most likely going to enjoy at least SOME of this game. And each campaign is pretty short; I think completed all three in well under 10 hours. Probably closer to 6 or so.

Review: Dragon Age: Origins [PS3]

February 19, 2010 1 comment

Intro
Dragon Age: Origins did little to interest me when it was shown at E3 last year. I’m not really into the “Tolkein-ish” fantasy games, like this or Elder Scrolls. I’m more of a Final Fantasy, or Fallout type guy. But lately, it seemed a lot of podcasts started talking more about this since more of their hosts had finally finished the game. Now, I’m not going to lie, I am nowhere NEAR finished with the game, but I have a good grasp on it and how the game itself feels. This time I’m going to start with the bad, then the good.

Review: SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3 [PSP]

February 18, 2010 Leave a comment

Clever, huh?

Intro
SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3 is the third installment in the FTB series on the PSP. Duh, right? It’s a third person, over the shoulder, “tactical” shooter, and is one of the few games to support Infastructure online play. With the recent drought in PSP games, especially shooters, one would think this would be a refreshing breath of life into the PSP world, right? Well, read on to discover more.

Review: Tank Battles [PSN]

February 15, 2010 2 comments

Intro
Have you ever played Combat on the Atari 2600? You know, the game where you are a pixel-tank and try and richocet bullets off walls to hit your enemy? It had a few layouts, it had jets, and I could of swore it had little cowboys which could shoot away at cacti as well. Well, subtract all of that except the tanks, put a fresh coat of cartoon-HD paint, add a now-standard online component and a single-player AND co-op career, and you have Tank Battles.

I played the demo for the first time with Chris (from Retrocore, see side panel) one night for five minutes, we both exploded with retro-enjoyment, and I bought it as soon as the five minute time limit ran out. That should sum up the game right there, but read on for more!
