Handheld gaming for years has been strictly only for pure gaming consoles, with a few exceptions. Mobile phones have taken stabs at this huge market, only to fall flat on their faces with poor graphics, and shoddy control capabilities. Then came the Iphone. Read more… »


If you believe everything you read on the internet you are probably well aware that the console is facing its doom and extinction, never to grace our dusty floors again. You also probably believe in the one true ceiling cat looming over us all, and that the world was destroyed last year after the Large Hadron Collider flicked its on switch. Where in all this jam packed maze of the interwebs lies the final nail in the console’s coffin? Casual games.



For anybody familiar with any sense of my work, you’ll notice that I’m a traditionalist when it comes to gaming, a quality that some may find redundant and questionable. Video games, as a concept, embody innovation, and for some, sticking to a formula that has been tried and tried again doesn’t quite cut it for their entertainment (or addiction. tomatoe – tomato). As much as I agree with this ideology, I find myself always looking for game that will satisfy my ongoing struggle for that experience that not only meets my desired level of innovation, but almost transcends time and brings upon a reversion to my preteen (or, God forbid, tween) self.

Games We’ve Forgotten
By: | February 22nd, 2009


With the slew of great titles being released, I found myself enthralled in some of 2008’s best, but as I look back, I notice that some games just didn’t really sink in. In no way were these games completely awful, but they seemed to get lost in the mix. Please note that this list is of my own, I don’t particularly know how others may or may not feel about those listed, or what they play. Read more… »


Braid. Flower. Linger in Shadows. Even Prince of Persia, Valkyria Chronicles, Street Fighter IV, Echochrome and Killzone 2. All of these games—and far too many more—have been called “art.” We’ve all heard someone say that a certain game somehow blurs the line between gaming and art. We’ve all heard of the games that are nearly indistinguishable from art. Games that are, in fact, actually art. Read more… »


Have you misplaced a part of your youth? A convoluted, engrossing story? Individualized, quirky characters? A grossly overpowered, unusually stylish protagonist? Looking for that four person party? That menu driven combat? The countless amount of grinding? The four to six stage final boss? If you’ve answered yes to one or all of these questions, then you, like me, are itching for a traditional, console-style RPG. Read more… »


Attention all Yakuza series fans: the Yakuza 3 demo just launched in Japan last night. I was able to get my hands on the demo at a friend’s house, and let me tell you, it looks incredible. I had never played a Yakuza title before, so I was really excited to finally play this critically acclaimed series. The visuals were on par with any current-gen PS3 title, but was the gameplay fulfilling? Read on to find out. Read more… »


The topic of this article has plagued my mind for some time, it has been something I have wanted to discuss for a while now, but before I proceed, I would like to make a few things clear. I have been a gamer for a little over thirteen years now, and of those thirteen years, I have been a great fan of Nintendo and its gaming consoles and titles. Read more… »


F.E.A.R. 2 : Project Origin is the sequel to the highly acclaimed PC title (and the distinguishably less acclaimed console ports) F.E.A.R. Project Origin is supposed to be a refinement of the original, and bring gamers more excellent gunplay and more eerie scares.

The First Hour is meant to be a comparison guide to your own experiences with the game. Feel free to comment or let us know how your time with the game compares with ours.

All things said, lets see how the first hour goes:



If you are lucky enough to be in a relationship, Valentine’s Day is one of those days when you just have to avoid spending time gaming. This means missing your daily fix while you spend quality time with your special lady, well not anymore.

That’s right people; your eyes are not deceiving you, for I have come up with a list of games that you can play on Valentine’s Day without being told off by your girlfriend. (Lady Gamers, if you are lucky and your boyfriend enjoys gaming, then if you treat him to a few hours of team deathmatch on Valentine’s Day, I guarantee he will be very grateful).



We, the gaming community, are becoming increasingly spoiled. Technological advances in recent years have resulted in products that are able to capture our imaginations, have us on the edge of our seats and throw us into a huge variety of unbelievable situations that are way beyond our wildest dreams. But this has always been the case with videogames. Regardless of what new “innovative” gameplay feature a game thinks it has to offer us, it is very important to maintain the core fundamentals in gaming that make us come back time and again.


With a new slew of games beginning to rear their heads, the first major title being released in less than a week, the entire videogaming world is gearing up for an all out brawl when Street Fighter IV is released on February 17th in America, Japan, and Europe almost simultaneously (all within a week of each other). Being released on consoles, some may find the controller a little unfitting when attempting certain moves (Akuma’s Raging-Demon comes to mind). However, if you’re a hardcore fighting addict, don’t think third party controllers are exactly the best quality, and you have about two and a half grand to blow, then I’ve got the product for you: Dreamcade Impact.
