RPG of the Year – 2010

Same rules apply. I’ve cross referenced and double checked all the games on this list to confirm where and when they came out. North American release dates only and if I was unable to play the game, then I can’t count it. Again, I apologize if your favorite game didn’t make the top 5 and […]

Grand Theft Auto Series

GTA has been an interesting series that I’ve had a love/hate relationship with for many years. For many, when they say GTA, they’re referring to GTA3, 4, or possibly something along the line of San Andreas or Vice City. To avoid any confusion, I’m looking at the series as a whole and dishing out what […]

Steamed! – A.R.E.S. – Extinction Agenda

A.R.E.S. – Extinction Agenda Current selling price: $9.99 A.R.E.S., in my opinion, is best described as Metroid, but feels more like Contra, and has RPG elements. Basically you’re a robot for mankind fighting evil robots against mankind. Yeah, the story gets a little more complicated than that, but really that’s all you need to know. […]

Steamed! – Jamestown

Jamestown Current selling price: $9.99 Normally I hate bullet hell titles. The idea that all oldschool shmups operated on the principle of having a ridiculous amount of bullets on the screen at once is stupid, inaccurate, and has been done to death. This one has a few nice twists, however. Firstly, it’s an alternative history […]

Saints Row Series

I’ve often regarded the Saints Row series as San Andreas on crack. Really, I’m not wrong in this, but it’s how THQ and Volition go about their gangsta bromance trilogy that’s really important. All 3 Saints Row games have provided an incredibly fun, over the top experience with each one pushing the boundaries that much […]

Emulation Arcade – Action Fighter

Well, I’m kinda tapped out right now as far as creativity, so I figured I’d start up a new series of reviews, this time centering around different stuff I can emulate on my MAME32 emulator. So first off, what is MAME32 and what is emulation? Well, emulation is something I discovered in the mid 90s […]

Dead Space 2

General Overview I’ve become so jaded with today’s attempts at creating a horror game of any kind that anytime one anywhere remotely interesting slaps me in the face, I crave more, usually only to find it’s not much of a horror game, even by 90s’ standards. Dead Space was a rare exception and the sequel, […]

Just Cause 2

General Overview A typical outing into Just Cause 2 will have you deliberately flying off cliffs with motorcycles, opening up your parachute, zipping down to another vehicle with your grappling hook, and doing it all over again. The sheer amount of craziness and mayhem you can enact with this title is enough to get any […]

Kid Icarus

General Overview Kid Icarus is the epitome of what it means to be an action/adventure title. There are different scrolling stages, newer and newer challenges, status effects, upgrades, lots of interesting items, and an ever-increasing difficulty. Bottom line, if you haven’t tried this title, you’ve seriously missed out on 8 bit action/adventure goodness.

How An Achievement Caused Introspection – Skyrim

Skyrim is a fantastic game where even something as minor as sidequesting can be fun, interesting, and even a well told story all in its own. Some of the sidequests in Skyrim are much more entertaining than the main storyline…so much so that the main storyline pales in comparison to it. This seems to be […]
