In the spirit of Halloween, we have the latest version of Devil May Cry available on 360, PS3 and PC. This is a reboot and comes from the UK instead of Japan. Perhaps slightly tongue in cheek, we start with an amnesiac hero. He wakes after a night of wild partying to [...]
I’m nowhere near a fighting game expert. I never count frames of animation or worry about hit box overlap. However, I have been playing fighting games since the original Street Fighter II arcade cabinets came out. I played a lot of Street Fighter and the clones that followed.
The clones were trying to piggyback [...]
Firaxis has announced that the excellent strategy game, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is getting an expansion pack titled Enemy Within. It looks like all the improvements, maps and story elements will be rolled into the main campaign. Since those improvements will include biologically and mechanically augmented soldiers and enemies, it should add [...]
I played the original True Crime: Streets of L.A. It wasn’t up to Grand Theft Auto standards, but the spin of playing a cop and the increased focus of melee combat bumped it up a few notches. Having Christopher Walken as a narrator didn’t hurt either. I enjoyed that game but didn’t [...]
Welcome back Lara Croft. Or should I say hello to the new Lara since this is a reboot. I know that much was made of how would Tomb Raider respond to the success of the Uncharted series. Though both Drake and Croft share a lineage that includes Indiana [...]
If you’re going to call your game Revelations, the actual revelations should be pretty darn good. Unfortunately, that’s not the case here. It doesn’t ruin the game, but it adds to the overall feeling of jumble that is this game. Simply put, there are too many ideas in this game. Everything is [...]

Let me [...]
I’ve played all the main games in the Assassins Creed series. I’ve enjoyed most of them. The only one I haven’t finished is AC2: Revelations. I’ll probably finish it up sometime, but after the excellent Brotherhood, it didn’t really grab me. As I mentioned previously, I was really looking forward to III since it took [...]
I want to do more regular updates. So I’m going to try to do a game of the week. Admittedly, most of these will be apps since that’s the bulk of my game time these days. I’ll try to mix in some classics, indies, and big budget games as well. I’ll probably shoot for Fridays, [...]
Sony had their Playstation 4 press conference on the 20th of February. Some have wondered why the seemingly sudden announcement. Personally, I think it’s a good sign. Sony actually recognizes that they’re in trouble. They used to dismiss signs of trouble with the wave of an imperious hand. Now they’re reacting to a problem like [...]
