Shortly following Tiger Woods’ first PGA Tour event win in more than two years, the newest installment of Tiger Woods PGA Tour was released. The past few years of this franchise has brought with it some of the best innovation in sports gaming. A sentiment that many hope stays true in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 and beyond.

Game mechanics like Focus and True-Aim have kept the games fresh and rewarding in years past. And while not all of them were gems – looking at you caddie – EA Sports keeps all of this in mind and does not rest on its laurels. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 successfully polishes its strengths, focuses on addressing its weaknesses, and provides enough new content to keep players entertained for hours on end. Read more… »

Mistborn: Birthright

The Mistborn fantasy series by author Brandon Sanderson will be “lurching” its way onto PlayStation 3, Xbox 360,  PC, and Mac in fall 2013 courtesy of developer Little Orbit. Sanderson himself is writing the story for the game, titled Mistorn: Birthright, and it will be set several hundred years before the events of the books.

The game is set to be an action-RPG, and Mistborn‘s unique magic system based off metals lends itself well to an interactive medium. This won’t be Sanderson’s first time working with videogames as he did story development for iOS game Infinity Blade II and wrote the Infinity Blade: Awakening tie-in novella. According to the press release, players will “suit up as Fendin “Fiddle” Fathvell, an arrogant young nobleman who must quickly master his newfound Allomantic abilities before forces at work can destroy his entire family.”

While Ninja Gaiden III is not really up to par with the rest of the series, at times it is still a serviceable action game. Also, at least one of you out there will be playing it at some point in your life, so an achievement/trophy guide is probably going to be requested by someone, and I haven’t seen any yet.

So, without further ado, read on for help on the game’s achievements/trophies. Read more… »

When I first heard the concept behind Operation Raccoon City, I was taken aback by excitement. I would have the ability to not only influence and see first-hand the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3, but I’d be able to go on missions with fan favorite HUNK himself? I had to be dreaming. Well, if I was dreaming, actually playing the thing was the pinch that crushed my sweet, sweet slumber.

Buyer beware – only hardcore Resident Evil fans need apply to this outing. Read more… »

Fans have been waiting four years for a true Ninja Gaiden game, but the lack of former Director Itagaki has some people worried. Team Ninja has been going in a significantly easier and less bloody direction ever since Itagaki left, but those issues only affected the Sigma versions of the games.

So does an Itagaki-less Ninja Gaiden translate into a bad Ninja Gaiden? Well, yes and no. Read more… »

It’s good to be the king. You get to sleep in under comfy silk sheets while your vassals wake at dawn and go out to till the land. Architects build your towers. Wizards slave over mysterious, glowing artifacts. All the while, your coffers fill with gold.

One day, you’re awoken by one of your purple robed advisers alerting you that a rival lord’s army is at the gates. Such a travesty! Who does he think he is? And why does your adviser sound like a caricature of Sean Connery?

Defenders of Ardania (DoA) for Xbox Live Arcade starts with the player waking to find the enemy at the outskirts. Tower defense battles quickly carry you off into the lands of Majesty, in search of ancient evil, gathering key allies and powers along the way. With effective gameplay twists (yes, there is tower offense), DoA offers a gaming experience that may be rough around the edges, but is thoroughly entertaining.

Microsoft E3 2011

Hope you like your Xbox 360 because you’re not getting a replacement. Well you will eventually, but Microsoft isn’t talking about that this year. Company spokesperson David Dennis recently told Bloomberg that they have no plans to show off any new Xbox hardware at this year’s E3 conference.

Mass Effect 3 is here, and much to the chagrin of non-Collectors-Edition buyers, there is day one DLC — specifically a downloadable pack that adds new squad member costumes, a new weapon, a new mission, and a new very spoilery squad member.

In fact, this DLC character in particular is the absolute focus on this pack, as original Mass Effect fans most likely have been dreaming about this moment for years.

Do not click the break or continue reading unless you’re ready for spoilers for this DLC only — specifically regarding the squadmate. Read more… »

Mass Effect, over the years, has been quite the chameleon. At first, it started as a pretty RPG heavy title that involved tons of customization and obtuse design choices. Then it evolved into possibly the most streamlined product Bioware had ever produced.

Mass Effect 3 attempts to marry the two types of gameplay into one action packed conclusion. But does it succeed? Or is it too action packed for its own good? Read more… »

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning by newcomer 38 Studios doesn’t feel like a debut game. The pure confidence with which it presents itself is refreshing because it knows what kind of game it wants to be. While some might be tempted to write Amalur off as just another Western RPG like Skyrim with some World of Warcraft thrown in for color, they’d be wrong.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning might be built upon the backs of familiar fantasy and RPG tropes, but it gets them right more often than it gets them wrong.
