REVIEW – Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (PS3)

GREAAAAAAAT! Without question, the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is quite the package.  Arguably, MGS2 and MGS3 are some of the PS2’s finest titles with Peace Walker standing as one of the highest quality titles on Playstation’s portable.  Bundling them all on a single disc, giving them an HD makeover, and selling for a reduced …

REVIEW – Spiderman: Edge of Time (PS3)

Out Of Time Instead of putting you in the shoes of four Spidermen like last year’s Shattered Dimensions, Edge of Time seamlessly transitions between a past and future Spider-Man.  Unfortunately, the focus on style puts all gameplay in the backseat. Comic books can have some pretty strange plotlines but Edge of Time takes a new …

REVIEW – X-Men Destiny (PS3)

It Is Not Your Destiny X-Men Destiny does something different.  Instead of assuming control of your favorite mutant superhero, Destiny puts you in the shoes of an unknown mutant.  The entire basis behind the gameplay is having the option of imbuing the special abilities of your liking, not unlike selecting the Ranger, Fighter, or Mage …

REVEIW – Sonic Generations (360)

Back To Basics Sega’s favorite mascot has going through some tough times ever since he left the Genesis era.  Sonic Generations is a throwback to great 2D levels of the 16-bit age with the best touches of Sonic Adventure mixed in.  Sure, fans received Sonic Colors but the ridiculous alien plotline was a little strange …

REVIEW – Self-Defense Training Camp (Kinect)

Punching You In the Nuts If there is one thing I learned from playing Self-Defense Training Camp, it is that dudes should constantly be wearing a cup.  Every day trips to the grocery store, during a meeting at work, or just walking to the mailbox, it does not matter – just make sure you are …

REVIEW – MotionSports Adrenalin (Kinect)

Aiming for Realism I have yet to play a Kinect game without a delay from my movements to what happens on screen.  Any game, whether it involves Kinect or not, needs to properly respond to the player’s actions.  Without this, the only result will be frustration and ultimately turning the game off.  MotionSports Adrenalin, like …

REVIEW – Dungeon Siege III: Treasures of the Sun DLC Review

  Extending The Adventure The Treasures of the Sun DLC probably won’t change your opinion about the game as a whole but should please fans looking to do some more dungeon sieging. This four to six hour DLC adventure offers some new content to play around with like the Essence system which can enhance a …

REVIEW – BurgerTime World Tour (XBLA)

Not Cooked All The Way The burger-making sim is back but are the modern toppings enough to ask for seconds? Do you remember the last level in the original Donkey Kong?  While being chased by enemies, Mario had to run over specific sections of a structure to cause the canopy, and the big ape, to …

REVIEW – Max and the Magic Marker Gold Edition (PSN)

Now With Move Available on many different platforms and now released on the PS3, Max and the Magic Marker is essentially the same game as the PC and WiiWare version. The biggest difference with the PSN Gold Edition is the introduction of Playstation Move support and a few added elements like new boss battles and …

REVIEW – Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone

Always Live With Others Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone is basically Left4Dead but played through a twin stick shooter.  While average gamers might find a couple of hours of entertainment through co-op play, this sequel to 2009’s original fails to distinguish itself from the currently popular twin stick shooter genre. Even though each playable character …
