Game Review: State of Decay

Game Review: State of Decay

State of Decay launched on Xbox 360 Arcade & for Windows, this downloadable single player game is available at a sum of 1600 Microsoft Points. Yes this is another zombie based title that’s swirling around the video game market, after journeying into the open World with cautious optimism I have come to absolutely adore what State of Decay is all about. After viewing the trailer my heart filled with dubious expectations, I am happy to report this release sinks its terrifying claws right into you and serves as an exceptional product to add into any survival horror fans collection!...

Game Review: Mars: War Logs

Game Review: Mars: War Logs

Indie games are constantly criticized and compared to higher budget titles mercilessly. Mars: War Logs is the best example of this sort of scenario. It does an amazing job in demonstrating that it has the potential to do something great-even against titles with bigger budgets. War Logs immerses players as Roy Temperance; a soldier who was captured and sent to a POW (prisoner of war) camp during the war between two large water companies on Mars known as Abundance and Aurora. Shortly after, another soldier known as Innocence arrives, having been captured and brutalized by his fellow inmates, Roy believes that it is the... Read On

Game Review: Skylanders Giants

Game Review: Skylanders Giants

When I first heard about Skylanders, I honestly didn’t have very high expectations- a game centered around physical toys sounded a bit gimmicky- sure, having physical toys that actually incorporate themselves into the game sounds cool, but honestly, how good can the game be? When I played Skylanders: Spyo’s Adventure last year, I was pleasantly surprised- the addition of toys didn’t feel tacked on, but was really a well-integrated part of the game. Walking into the game’s sequel, Skylanders Giants, I was once again impressed, for this game had managed to improve upon its predecessor. First, a bit of... Read On

Game Review: Primordia

Game Review: Primordia

Primordia- yes, it means the beginning of something- can also be defined as the earliest stage of development for organs and tissues. This definition can easily summarize Wadjeteye Games newest title; Primordia. The title came out on December 5, and I personally think that the most remarkable feature that Primordia brings to the table is the use of commentary. The player takes the role of (or, really, follows) Horatio Version 5- a robot built by man- and his fellow sidekick Crispin in a post-apocalyptic world.  In the beginning Horatio is attacked by a mysterious robot that robs him of...

Game Review: Cave Story (eShop)

Game Review: Cave Story (eShop)

I feel slightly guilty having taken so long to play Cave Story. I downloaded its original freeware PC port a long time ago, but I never quite got around to paying much attention to it. The game was created by Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya, a lone Japanese developer who put together the game’s music, story and of course gameplay all by himself. Recently, I got my hands on the 3DS eShop version- I’m amazed. This is a platformer that belongs in everybody’s library for having top-notch gameplay, an interesting world with nicely fleshed-out characters and a zany, engaging story. It’s... Read On

Game Review: Snapshot

Game Review: Snapshot

In today’s world, platforming titles come out nearly each month, and add a bare minimum of one or two interesting features into the mix to captivate players long enough to purchase the title.  Snapshot is the primary example of this type of title. With the ability to utilize a magical camera, and the ability to jump from one platform to the next, what could go wrong? Sadly, too many things. You play as a robot who seems to be lost in a forest, and must utilize his magical camera and his ability to jump to get through the forest.... Read On

Game Review: Double Dragon Neon

Game Review: Double Dragon Neon

In the following review I will discuss the game, Double Dragon Neon, I will focus mainly on the gameplay aspects in general rather than comparing the title to its predecessor which was released in the beat ’em up heyday. Video games have come along way in the past few decades and it is important to remember its historic roots as it is with many other notable form of media or entertainment such as comics and films. The task seems to be a difficult one in terms of bringing a game that was a hot seller in 1987 and presenting... Read On

Game Review: Chester

Game Review: Chester

    Indie games are normally known and seen as games that raise the bar in video game creativity. Brilliant Blue-G’s latest title, Chester, a game that could have been downloaded on Indie Game Stand for free is the title that most if not all indie developers should look to as a role model in terms of creativity. The title is a platformer that mixes not only strategy, but also RPG elements and cartoonish art design.     You play as Chester, a sort of monster-looking fellow who is adventuring through levels without any reason as to why. There is no sort... Read On

Game Review : Gateways

Game Review : Gateways

What do you get when you combine the complex level design of Metroid with Portal’s critical thinking? Simply enough, a decent indie game.Gateways is, in spirit and gameplay, the child of these two stupendous titles, and without a doubt, Smudged Cat Games have taken a fair amount of creativity from both titles to create this one. You play as Ed, a brilliant scientist who happens to be locked in his own lab by a mysterious individual.  As you explore the lab, Ed realizes that the gateway guns (of his own invention) are scattered throughout the laboratory, and must find them to escape. Sadly,... Read On

Game Review: Darksiders 2

Game Review: Darksiders 2

Darksiders was a great game. Not only did it have a good story going for it, the gameplay was a nice blend of hack n’ slash and dungeon exploring much like the Legend of Zelda series. Of course as with most sequels, Darksiders 2 aims to be a bigger game in scope. However bigger does not always mean better and Darksiders 2’s attempt at being bigger hurts it in more ways than one. The story in Darksiders 2 does not pick up after the events of the first game which is odd for a sequel. Instead it tells the... Read On

Movie Review: The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

Movie Review: The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

Sometimes, a series needs rebooting. Perhaps on account of having an entry that was so hated, it nearly destroyed the great name of the series forever- or perhaps there was so much clutter in the timeline of said series that keeping things straight became impossible. Whatever the case, it happens- as it so happens, the Spider-Man live-action film franchise has been freshly rebooted, and has just kicked off with The Amazing Spider-Man this year. So was it a reboot worth watching? I’d definitely say so. First off, while I don’t like to nitpick, I didn’t think the film had... Read On

Game Review: The Amazing Spider-Man

Game Review: The Amazing Spider-Man

The history of games based off of comic books has been a bumpy one. They’ve had their ups and downs. We’ve laughed with them and we’ve cried because of how god awful they were. In a long list of games based off comics only a handful have ever been not only good, but great and successfully captured what it’s like to be that character. It’s a challenge to get that right, and we all know there have been many many tries to capture the essence of our favorite heroes. But then comes the real challenge of having to make... Read On

Movie Review: Men In Black 3

Movie Review: Men In Black 3

When a sequel comes out so long after it’s predecessors it can tend to have a lot going against it. The biggest thing is that they tend to rely on the same formula from before. Sometimes it works and sometimes it goes completely wrong. Thankfully after ten years, Men in Black 3 didn’t fall into that trap. It still manages to keep the same humor that we love from the series while also injecting some more character development between it’s characters that keeps it fresh and worth the trip to the theater. It’s been ten years since last we saw... Read On

Battleship

Review: Battleship

I had the biggest grin on my face throughout the entirety of this movie. An absolute delight. In fact, I enjoyed it as much as I did “The Avengers”. There. I said it. I’ll probably catch some flack for that claim but those I’ll catch flack from will most likely be fuddy duddies who don’t know what constitutes a good time at the movies. It’s big. It’s loud. It’s dumb. It’s an absolute hoot. It’s everything one could hope for from a summer blockbuster. And there’s absolutely no excuse for this movie not having been presented in 3D. With... Read On

Movie Capsule Review: The Avengers

Ah summer blockbuster season… There’s no time of the year (not counting Christmastime) that fills me with such joy. So much spectacle is hurled at us week after week by Hollywoodland and, oh my goodness, is it ever grand. And we are off to one heck of a start with Marvel’s “The Avengers”. This will probably wind up being the most clever of the big flicks being released this season. Pretty much every plot point from all the solo adventures of Iron Man, Captain America and Thor interweaves with one another here, resulting in lots of conflict and lots... Read On

Game Review: Castle Crashers

Attention everybody- I have good news: video games with zany humor aren’t dead, and their trip to the fjords has ended- they’ve come home to The Behemoth. Don’t believe me? Check out Castle Crashers. So what is Castle Crashers? Simply put, it’s a fun XBLA title with gameplay in the style of such beat’em’ups as Streets of Rage, with a medieval fantasy twist and the brand of strange, slightly dark humor that The Behemoth seems to be so good at belching forth in their every game. So what’s the game about? It’s simple, really: some really bad green dudes... Read On

Game Review: Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition

Game Review: Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition

A long, long time ago (about twenty years), an adventure game was released for the Amiga. It was called Another World (also known as Out of this World and Outer World), and it quickly spread to other platforms such as Sega Genesis, SNES, and many, many others. The game has now been released on Android and iOS to celebrate twenty years of action-adventure goodness. The reason the game has come so far over two decades is, in my opinion, because of how well it manages to tell a story. Of course, engrossing (not to mention difficult) gameplay doesn’t exactly...

Game Review: Lone Survivor

Game Review: Lone Survivor

Jasper Byrne’s 8-bit survival horror game, Lone Survivor, is certainly terrifying in ways I can’t begin to explain… I suppose I’ll have to do my best, really. The game takes place in and around an apartment building some while after the outbreak of a horrific, disfiguring disease that turns ordinary people into fleshly, hungry abominations. In short, it’s I Am Legend all over again. However, I think this game is actually better than the aforementioned film. How so? Well for starters, the story feels rather deep- much of the “horror” is psychological in nature. Rather than resorting to cheap... Read On

Game Review: Yesterday

Yesterday is an adventure game developed by Pendulo Studios, and released on March 22, 2012. The game takes place within New York City, where beggars start disappearing one by one only to be found murdered, but later they are tortured, and burnt alive. There are a total of 3 playable characters, who are Henry White, Cooper, along with John Yesterday, who has amnesia. The game has a mysterious atmosphere, and sustains this atmosphere throughout the whole game by providing answers, but never providing the reasons behind those answers until the end. Furthermore, the game utilizes a point-and click system,... Read On

Movie Review: The Adventures of Tintin (2011)

Lots of people might argue that legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg has lost his touch as an artist as of late, having not crafted a film to completely woo audiences since 2003, the year both Catch Me if You Can and Minority Report were released. His works since then, like Munich, War of the Worlds, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,  and even his most recent film, War Horse, have all been criticized for failing to capture the same magic of his Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T. days. While this certainly open for debate (Munich... Read On
