  • Alien Breed: Impact (Review) PC

    Posted by on July 18, 2010 under Euro, PC, Reviews
    What does a spaceship accident, alien creatures, and running around collecting keycards and unlocking doors all have in common? Think Team 17’s latest game, Alien Breed: Impact for PC. After your spaceship crashes into a drifting space hull, your mission is to investigate the floating hulk for any survivors and, well, to collect keycards and unlock doors. The majority of AB:I is spent doing j... more.
  • Guitar Hero (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on July 12, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Maybe I just don't get it. I prefer Coltrane to Cobain and musicians who focus on licks instead of looks. Guitar Hero for iPhone has admirable traits, not the least of which is the $2.99 starter-pack price. The touch-screen interface has novel aspects compared to a couple of other major players in the genre. But ultimately what you're playing is a hyper-slick variant of the ancient catch-the-bo... more.
  • Zombie Wonderland (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on July 9, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    What is it about zombies and iPhones? Maybe the invasion is an allegory for a civilianization willingly turning into Pod people controlled by the decrees of the Apple overlords. Maybe it symbolizes the severance of intelligent communication between humans as eyes and ears became merely an extension of their devices. Or maybe it's just because zombies are easy enemy fodder for game programmers w... more.
  • Puppet War FPS (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on July 2, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Once upon a time there was a stellar children's show where hallucinations, bulimia, vagrancy and rumored homosexuality didn't threaten the fabric of the community. Bilingualism was good, Pox News unabashedly broadcast trash and Monsterpiece Theater's "Me, Claudius" wasn't elitism run amok. Then the forces of commercialism and political correctness invaded. Lessons became dumber, profits took pr... more.
  • Drums Challenge Charlie Morgan (Review) iPhone/iPod

    Posted by on July 1, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Guitar Hero has arrived for the iPhone and gamers, obeying the decrees of Activision, are forking their money over in droves. So, to unleash some cliches of my own, I'm marching to the beat of a different drummer with some alternative music. It might not be as entertaining as the admittedly reasonably-priced Port-O-GH (which will get scrutinized in a future rant despite its critic proofness), b... more.

  • Neo-Geo Battle Coliseum (Review) XBox 360

    Posted by on June 23, 2010 under Reviews, Xbox 360
    SNK is synonymous with fighting games. Over the years, they have produced many fighters that are revered the world over. Ask any fighting fan and they will no doubt mention at least one popular SNK franchise that has stood the test of time -- The King of Fighters. SNK's foray into the mainstream with KOF XII was met with lukewarm fanfare at best (the game was missing staple characters from the ser... more.
  • Air Hockey Arcade (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on June 19, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    It wasn't MacPaint that won me over to the ingenuity of the computer mouse. It was Shufflepuck Cafe, a black-and-white air hockey simulator that felt completely authentic except for the lack of air jets cooling off your hand. The iPhone's touch screen can't replicate that wrist-fatiguing thrill, but seems more than adequate for on-the-go face offs. Another simple wrist-action game, Skee-Ball, i... more.
  • Resonance of Fate (Review) Xbox 360

    Posted by on June 15, 2010 under Reviews, Xbox 360
    In Resonance of Fate, your adventure takes place in a dark, gritty cyberpunk world where survival is key. You're for hire, and you will take any job that is available. This is the kind of place where crime and gangs thrive, and no one does anything to stop it. Welcome to Basel; a towering (albeit enormous) multiplexed skyscraper-like structure that stretches high up into the heavens, overlooking t... more.
