Gundam Battle Universe is the fourth iteration in the Gundam Battle series of games for the Playstation Portable, and easily surpasses the previous three in terms of content, depth and fun. Gundam Battle Universe is a stunningly addictive action-combat game that can be played in either a third person or first-person perspective, where players assume control of giant humanoid mechs, called mobile suits, in battle after gut-wrenching battle. It is also the single best game to land on the Playstation Portable. Read more… »

Innovation is something that hasn’t exactly been commonplace in First Person Shooters in recent years.  It seems like we’ve been busy picking off Nazis and Aliens for eons, that that it’s impossible to do anything else within the genre.  Mirror’s Edge sought to dramatically change the conventions we hold for what a FPS can and should be.

World of Goo Review
By: | January 24th, 2009

By accident I found an early gameplay video of 2D Boy’s “World of Goo” last year. I immediately bookmarked the video and would frequently check in on the World of Goo website to see just how much longer I would have to wait before I could play the quirky-looking little game for myself. When I finally got my hands on the title, I was very pleased with what I saw. I waited a long time–and the wait was most-definitely worth it.

The question is, is this an honors course or remedial studies?

Devil May Cry 4 Review
By: | January 23rd, 2009

dmc4-1

The Devil May Cry franchise reinvigorated the action adventure genre when it was first released in 2001 for the Playstation 2. Dante, the title character, is not by any means an orthodox hero. He is the son of a demon, and his story is motivated by revenge for his mother’s death. The main gameplay premise that sets Devil May Cry apart from its predecessors is the ability to become a “stylish hero”, meaning sometimes using moves that aren’t practical, just to look good. Devil May Cry 4, released for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, seeks to uphold the series’ legacy. Read on to find out if it succeeded.

With such an onslaught of games this holiday season, it was very easy to get lost within the Capital Wasteland that was Fallout 3, frightening corridors filled with the lurking undead that was Left 4 Dead, or the quirky build-it-yourself platformer that was Little Big Planet. However, Square Enix delivers the final blow; one neatly packaged to fit right in your pocket, so prepare for complete reversion to your ten year old self.

Hunt the world’s deadliest criminals in Interpol: The Trail of Dr. Chaos (yep, that’s the title) which is a new arcade game on Xbox Live for 800 points.

Gamer Limit Review: LittleBigPlanet
By: | January 14th, 2009

logo_small

Every million or so blue moons a small unheard of developer comes out of the rough and creates a game that not only puts them in the spotlight, but also lands in our hearts as that game we remember forever. Media Molecule is small- very small as you can see by the opening level of LittleBigPlanet.

LittleBigPlanet is a creative PS3 title that just hasn’t got enough love from PS3 owners. There is no such thing as perfect game. When the gaming world sees a perfect game, then there’s nothing to improve on. Games need to be criticized and  nit picked to ensure future games get better. Let’s see how LittleBigPlanet fairs knowing that no games perfect.
