Drew a Conclusion Review: Paper Wars HD

Once in a long while, there comes a game for an otherwise obtuse device that proves it capable of appealing to a community many would have initially suspected it was incapable of performing said task. For the iPad, titles like World of Go...

 
 
 
 

Review: Assassin's Creed Brotherhood

So, I finally got around to playing Assassin's Creed Brotherhood; managed to snag a used copy of it (with the DLC unclaimed!) for a fair price. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this one. When it was first announced I kind of rolled m...

 
 
 
 

Enslaved: A Thorough and (Slightly) Retro Review

Iím sure many of you glossed over Ninja Theoryís Enslaved: Odyssey to the West when it came out last October. I know I passed up its release in order to save some cash, but having finally gone back and played it Iíd say itís a shame that an...

The Video Game Micro Review

My friend talked me into doing something I never intended to do for the gaming community Ė write game reviews. There is no shortage of game reviews to find, whether professional or amateur. I donít like giving scores to games, as they can e...

 
 
 
 

inFAMOUS 2 Review

With all of the talk about the setting, the new powers, and the holy $#!^ backlash to Cole's redesign and re-redesign, there was quite a bit of buzz surrounding the sequel to arguably one of the best Playstation 3 exclusives. inFAMOUS 2 ...

 
 
 
 

Pedobear Review: CHILD of EDEN

"Dude, Awesome." Child of Eden is the ultimate evolution of games like Space Harrier, Panzer Dragoon, and Rez. First, allow me to give you my take on Child of Eden's story: September 11th 2019, the first human is born on the Internatio...

 
 
 
 

Drew a Conclusion: Pulse

#1: Homefront Review

For veterans of the first person shooter, being ordered around is nothing to write home about and some of the subtler commands present within the genre have even come to represent a quasi-code of sorts. For example, stumbling across a cra...

Late To The Party- Splatterhouse (PS3)

I'm often pretty terrible at picking up games I am interested in or just flat out playing them. I have my own backlog of sorts that I still need to work through, so what "Late to The Party" is going to be is just sort of my own late reviews...

 
 
 
 

Fail List: Before You Die Edition

1-Hour Review: L.A. Noire
