Linger in Shadows “Review”
By: | December 19th, 2008

lingerinshadow

“Interactive Art” is what the creators of Linger in Shadows label this experience as and never before has a term been applied better than in this case.  Linger in Shadows has minimal gameplay,  no story, or length for that matter.  It is a six minute long movie with certain pauses for puzzles.  The puzzles are not that long and always end in an explosion followed by the next section of the movie.  The first one of these really surprised me because I didn’t know what I did, the screen just exploded and moved on.  The “game” is very unique and anyone interested in art (which if you play videogames you should be) should really check this out. Especially for the price there is no excuse to not give this a shot.

If you’ve never heard of Penny Arcade, you should check them out online and see if their particular brand of humor is your cup of tea: their razor wit expletive filled dialogue is a core part of both the web comic, and the game’s sense of humor.

“On the Rain Slick” is played like a traditional, watered down version of Final Fantasy. Read on to find out how it stands up against the legacy of the classic comic strip. Read more… »

Rez HD review
By: | December 11th, 2008

This has to be the hardest review I’ve ever written. To describe Rez in a way that is clear to comprehend and explain its sheer awesomeness without repetitively using the word awesome. To put it quite simply, Rez is not just a game, Rez is an experience. Don’t let the “trippy” vector graphics that throb to the beat of the music, or the simplistic game play turn you off on this unique gem that rises to the top of the sea of clones and mediocrity that is today’s gaming market. It’s not often that a game as unique as Rez comes around; yes I know that it originally came out on the Dreamcast and PS2, but that’s not the point. Rez originally came out in 2001; now in 2008 it is re-released and still feels new, original, and fun. It holds up after seven years, which is quite amazing.

Left 4 Dead Review
By: | December 6th, 2008

Zombies are hot. One glance at any message board specializing in nerd sub-culture and it’s easy to see that Zombies are the Prada of the geek world. Suffice it to say, ninjas are out. Equally as popular in today’s gaming climate is cooperative play, more specifically, the online variety. Left 4 Dead, from Half-Life publisher Valve, serves to combine cooperative play and zombies into one fantastic yet frantic experience that’s completely unique at the same time.

Mortal Kombat has had a tattered history; its first 4 iterations were some of the first games targeted by the “Video Games beget Violence” crusaders.  The next few titles in the series were notable deviations in the formula, branded as unremarkable fighters using unremarkable mini-games as a crutch.  Much doubt has been cast upon the newest title, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, especially with the inclusion of DC Superheroes resulting in the omission of the gruesome fatalities of old. Having played the game for many hours, I can safely say that MK vs. DC is not a deviation, it’s not a gimmick, and it should be titled Mortal Kombat 4.

If you were to ask any serious video game enthusiast about which game they consider to be the king of fighting games, 99.9 percent of the time you’re going to get the same answer, and here’s a hint: it’s not going to be the one with the word “king” in the title.

Style over substance is the theme of Activision’s newest entry into their long running Spider-Man series. Keeping the open world aspect of previous Spidey games, Web of Shadows institutes a fresh new combat system that allows Peter Parker to beat down foes like never before. While the combat serves to keep things interesting, Web of Shadows eventually falls victim to the same trappings of its predecessors: the game is technically sloppy, the majority of the quests are vastly uninteresting, and there just isn’t anything interesting to do in this world.

Far Cry 2 Review
By: | December 3rd, 2008

Far Cry 2 may be a lot of things, but it sure isn’t a stress relief.  Finishing the whole game is quite and engaging experience and will take well up to 3 days even for the more skilled.  This is not a 6-7 hour shooting experience.

Rock Band 2 Review
By: | December 1st, 2008

It’s been one year since I finally got to “live” my dream of becoming a rock star. Now I sit here with a new set of drums in the corner, a shiny new guitar leaning up against the wall, and a, pretty much exactly the same, microphone on the floor. Oh Rock Band, you draw me in and never want to let go.

Everyday Shooter Review
By: | November 29th, 2008

By now most people have probably heard the story of Jonathan Mak creating Everyday Shooter by himself complete with an original amazing soundtrack, pretty tight controls, eight levels to blast through, and a sweet system for conducting it all.  The game is a dual stick shooter from the Playstation Network for $9.99 and it’s completely worth every cent. The unique thing about Everyday Shooter is that the game is based almost entirely on music.
