  • If A Certain Blue Bombin’ ‘Bot Was More Like A Heavy Metal Slug – “A.R.E.S.” Review (XBox 360)

    Posted by on October 21, 2013 under Reviews, Xbox 360
    It's not very often that I get to play a game these days that features some old school robot-blastin' fun, and when I first started playing "A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda EX" by Extend Studio and Aksys Games, right away I knew I was going to be in for a treat and a nice lil' trip down metal memory lane of sorts. A.R.E.S. is a guns-a-blazin' (yet brief) thrill ride of a sci-fi side scroller that d... more.

    I pose an interesting question, fellow gamers - how many of us hero types (such as myself) wondered what it would be like to help save the world on a totally different planet other than Earth or some other other worldly place for a change?  Well, that's what the fine folks at Spiders and Focus Home Interactive aim to find out also, with their sci-fi RPG, "Mars: War Logs" for the 360.

    Posted by on August 3, 2013 under Reviews, Xbox 360
    Before we get started on this review, I'd like to see a show of hands, gamers -- who here would love nothing more than to assume the role of the ultimate nocturnal assassin -the vampire?  Then you're in luck, because that's exactly what you get to do here in Dark, by Realmforge Studios and Kalypso Media.

  • Discouraged By The Scourge…. Scourge: Outbreak (Review) Xbox 360

    Posted by on August 3, 2013 under Reviews, Xbox 360
    I have a new riddle for you, fellow gamers:  What would happen if you were to cram Gears Of War, add a Crysis-like feel to it , and top it off with a very slight touch of Mass Effect, and then just slap it all together into a sci-fi third-person shooter that's highly reminiscent of watching a SyFy Network "original movie"?  Well, if you were to guess that you'd end up with Scourge: Outbreak by T... more.

    Here's a riddle for you, gamers:  What game first comes to mind if you were to, say, take Metal Gear Solid and give it a post-apocalyptic twist, and have Solid Snake as a Russian, fighting for survival and all mankind in Moscow's subway system?  Go ahead, I'll give you a second or two -- give up yet?  Well if you had guessed Metro Last Light by Deep Silver and 4A Games, then you'd certainly be ... more.
  • XBox ONE: Next-Gen Gem or Doomed Debacle?

    Posted by on May 22, 2013 under Euro, News, Xbox 360, Xbox One
    During the weeks prior to May 21, 2013, I can remember often pondering just what Microsoft could possibly reveal to the masses with their big upcoming announcement of an event. I was thinking all over the place, wondering if they were going to show us something that would very easily blow Sony and Nintendo off the gaming grid altogether, or if it would be more like a rushed product that would get... more.

    Posted by on March 20, 2013 under Reviews, Xbox 360
    If I were to ask you to name a web-slinging hero, who would you think of?  Let me guess - some guy who wears a red jumpsuit, while flying around New York City, protecting the innocent and taking out bad guys -- right?  Normally I would tell you that your guess is correct, but not this time as there's a NEW do-gooder out there in the form of  - well, a spider.

    Posted by on February 18, 2013 under Reviews, Xbox 360
    Back in January, I gave you folks a slight teaser of Serious Sam's latest entry in Serious Sam:  Double D XXL.  Mommy's Best Games, Developer Digital, and Mastertronic Group, Ltd. did an excellent job here with their nod to the two dimensional side-scrolling shooter world.  While first person shooter purists may cringe at this switch in perspective, I for one welcome it with wide open arms. ... more.
