Left 4 Dead Demo Impressions
By: | November 12th, 2008

Newly released on Xbox Live is the demo for the highly anticipated Xbox 360 exclusive “Left 4 Dead”. The game has been building a generous amount of buzz. Some due to the very vocal Valve staff and their firm position against the PS3 and its unique architecture. But other buzz is genuinely from sincere interest in the game. No matter what side you are on, Valve has made a huge success out of the Half Life series, and are definitely looking for the next hit series.

XBLA: Galaga Legions Review
By: | November 7th, 2008

First I must give a disclaimer. I am a Galaga nut. As a wee sprat it is one of the first coin op games I ever really latched on to. Even after I gained a few years and the cool kids were playing Street Fighter on the big screen you would find my plunking my parents hard earned money in the smoke filled dens of video devilment. To this day I have been on actual dates where I have seen a Galaga machine and my eyes stare longingly over to it’s pixilated glory. In these cases, second dates are rare.

Got Plans For Midnight? Cancel Them.

Get ready to get down, gamer geek style.

In terms of scale, brand recognition and raw selling power, two titles stand above the crowd of high profile games releasing in the pre-Christmas rush. I’m referring, of course, to Insomniac’s Resistance 2, released a couple of days ago and Epic’s Gears of War 2, releasing tomorrow.

The Penny Arcade games are what I call mini-RPGs, and episode two is obviously the sequel to episode one. In the game you take control of a character crafted by you, and then proceed to adventure with Gabe and Tycho of the famous Penny Arcade comic strip. If you haven’t heard of them, you should go check it out. The game is available on XBLA, PSN, Windows, MAC and Linux. For this review we will be focusing on the XBLA version, and I have not played the other version (although they are all the same game).

Age of Booty Review
By: | November 5th, 2008

Xbox Live Arcade has, in my opinion, always put out some quality strategy board games. Catan and Carcassorone are two of the best examples. With Capcom behind the publishing duties and some of former Bungie developers, this newly formed developer being Certain Affinity, doing the honors of creating Age of Booty to fans of the genre were eagerly anticipating the game would be putting it mildly. I am very happy to report that they delivered and then some.

XBLA: Braid Review
By: | November 4th, 2008

Braid has generated a lot of buzz over the past couple of years. I’ve been dying to play it ever since I first heard previews almost three years ago. Heck, it even won an award for innovation in design from the 2006 Independent Games Festival, despite not coming out until 2008. If ever an independent game has been hyped, it has been Braid. Of course, as with any hyped and long-awaited game, the question everyone is asking is “Was it worth the wait?”
