  • Steam Pirates (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on June 10, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Reviewing this game is a lot like discussing Nancy Pelosi or Sarah Palin. There's a clear love/hate divide and those on the love side say the haters just don't get it. Color me ignorant. Steam Pirates is an RPG staring Kat, whose introductory scenes – something about being a mercenary trying to rescue a rock band and encountering mermaids – are promising enough. What ensues is a hybrid 2... more.
  • Boxing Zoo (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on June 10, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    I'm perfectly amicable to abusing animals. "Cat football" was one of my first internet searches and my all-time favorite name for a pet is "Punt." It's a well-known phenomena among family and friends that their shelter rejects invariably plant themselves in my lap for interminable stretches as a sadistic form of revenge. So Boxing Zoo ought to be the ideal Punch Out clone to tote around on my i... more.

  • Yakuza 3 (Review) Playstation 3

    Posted by on June 2, 2010 under PS3, Reviews
    Kazuma has returned in Yakuza 3 to bang heads, unravel a conspiracy, and to save an orphanage from being demolished by a resort construction project. Our hero has retired from the rough life of being a Yakuza, and has moved to the quiet island of Okinawa to be the owner of Sunshine Orphanage. Kaz believes his life will be quiet and free of all Yakuza influence, but he soon finds out differently. ... more.
  • Prince Of Persia Retro (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on June 1, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Playing the iPhone update of this ancient classic is a lot like taking back a spouse that had an affair. There's love and a desire to reunite, but you're just not sure you can ever fully trust your partner again. Which isn't to say it's not worth messing around a bit for old times' sake. Prince Of Persia Retro revives the 1989 Apple II classic that launched a prolific gaming franchise and ut... more.
  • Goro’s Way (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on June 1, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    A cute 2D platform creature trying to eek out a living in a cruel 3D shooter world. That's as close to "you had me at hello" as I get. I've long been a sucker for this now-underdog genre, which when done well matches the best of its rivals in offering new things to explore and discover. But Goro's Way is like that pretty girl who turns out be not all that bright (or, in my case, probably acti... more.
  • Angry Birds (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on May 28, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Odds are you probably already have and love this game, so all that's left for a poor reviewer to do is try to tell you something about it you don't know. For starters, behind the pay wall of The Wall Street Journal's Web site is this gem of an incentive for aspiring app developers:  "'Angry Birds' has generated about 2.35 million paid downloads since its launch in December…It costs 99 cents... more.
  • Stalingrad (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on May 28, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Not only is this alleged 3D shooter awful, but it's an insult to the ultimate battle of World War II. There's ambivalence about reliving war as entertainment instead of just blowing away the aliens in Doom, but gamers have made their peace with it for various reasons. As a history minor who's spent  a good chunk of his career analyzing politics, I'm part of the classic school of wargamers inte... more.
  • Rocket Knight – Review (PS3)

    Posted by on May 27, 2010 under PS3, Reviews
    Konami is back working their magic once again in their newest title, Rocket Knight. Taking place some years after the  Rocket Knight Adventure games (from back in the earlier 1990’s on Sega Genesis) Sparkster is back to protect his home and  defeat the swine army.
