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.

Banjo Kazooie Review
By: | January 13th, 2009

banjo

No one could have ever guessed that a Nintendo 64 game would have made its way to a Microsoft Console. A very lucrative move by Rare, Banjo Kazooie launches itself onto the Xbox Live Arcade. Never heard of this title, or even the company? Well, you’ve probably heard of their most successful game: GoldenEye. Banjo, the naïve Bear, and Kazooie, the smart alecky Bird, are two of the most amiable characters you will ever play with. While most of the game remains the same as its N64 counterpart, it’s important that we look again at what this game has to offer.

Disgaea 3 Review
By: | January 12th, 2009

dis

Disgaea 3 is a charming game from a company called Nippon Ichi Software (NIS). NIS is known the world over for creating memorable, quirky characters and hilarious dialogue. Disgaea 3 is preceded by Disgaea 1 and 2 for the Playstation 2 console, and heralded much earlier by classic Strategy Role Playing Games (SRPG) such as Front Mission and Final Fantasy Tactics. If you have never played a Strategy RPG before, the concept is rather simple: think of it as an advanced game of Chess.

Guitar Hero: World Tour Review
By: | January 9th, 2009

Deciding which plastic instruments deserve that place in your living room? Think Rock Band is too much of a party game? Are you really into old rock and metal? Then Guitar Hero: World Tour (GH:WT) might be the game for you. With classics like Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” and The Eagles’ ”Hotel California” to new stuff like “Scream Aim Fire” by Bullet For My Valentine and “What I’ve Done” by Linkin Park the game has a decent variety of music to jam to.

If you buy the “complete band game” you get one guitar, drum set, and mic to play with. All the instruments are well built and fun to play and they all work for Rock Band as well. The instruments in the package are great but the game…not so much.

underworld

The Tomb Raider series is one that has always been of shifting views. It has gone from good to bad to terrible and back to good again. Unfortunately I haven’t been there for any of this. Tomb Raider Underworld was my first Tomb Raider game. I am not sure whether that is a good thing or not; either way I hoped for the best when I jumped head first into Lara Croft’s newest adventure.

trauma

When the first Trauma Center, Under the Knife, was released for the Nintendo DS all those years ago, it was a cult hit: removing tumors with the stylus was an amazing experience that anyone without a weak stomach could get into. When the game was re-released for the Wii at launch, Second Opinion became more refined and even more entertaining. Now, a completely original title has been released for the Wii, and it’s just as good as the last, if not more so.

Gaming Ottoman Review

Ok, so has your wife or mom ever complained about your gaming mess? Yelled at your for having the controller on the coffee table? Well Target might just have the answer to your problems. I know it sounds slightly crazy, but while shopping with the wife today we ran across a must have for us. The Gaming Ottoman.

asscreed

The idea of death of killers, cloaked in shadows and claiming souls for the underworld, is almost revered. I mean, look at ninjas. That’s all I can say. Ubisoft gave the world a big shiver of glee when they announced their new project, Assassin’s Creed, where you could be this person. As time went on, the game became more and more amazing looking, promising a free-roaming world and flowing combat. What we got was just that.

Time Hollow Review
By: | January 1st, 2009

timehollow

When you design a game, it should be for the console that would suit it the best. Time Hollow is perfect for the DS and could only be done, at the same quality, on the DS. That being said, Time Hollow is not really a game. It looks, at first glance, like a point and click adventure game, but is more in line with a visual novel. The real draw being its fantastic story. It follows Ethan Kairos, a 17 year old student who comes across a device called the Hollow Pen, which allows him to open holes in time and manipulate the events on the other side.

Fallout 3 Review
By: | December 30th, 2008

fallout3

A brief stint with Fallout 3 gives the impression that it’s merely The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, albeit with guns and science fiction instead of high fantasy. The game runs on the same engine as the 2006 RPG sensation meaning that on a technical level, Oblivion’s strengths and weaknesses also ring true for this game. However, once you look past the graphical and technical issues, Fallout’s real strength appears in droves. Fallout 3 offers a world we’ve never seen before, characters we’ve ever interacted with and an experience completely and utterly its own.

Chromehounds Review
By: | December 24th, 2008

ch00239

FROM SOFTWORKS’s Chromehounds was the first of the Xbox 360′s few mech/action games. The mechs, or HOUNDS if you want to get technical, are massive, lumbering machines that decimate anything in their path with a huge array of weaponry.

Off of the battlefield you’ll be in the garage, this is probably where you’ll spend most of your time. In the garage you’ll be switching weapons or strengthening your defenses. If you don’t like how your mech functions simply delete it and start from the ground up; unlike most mech games where you can only choose your legs, body, arms, head, and weapons, in Chromehounds you are no longer held to those restrictions since your mech doesn’t need to resemble a human at all. I’ll cover all of that in a minute, but first let’s start with single player.
