Alien Swarm Review

So if reviews are suppose to be a kind of buyers guide to things that cost money, then consider this a public service announcement, go download this free game now… No really, I mean it. Start downloading it and comeback so I can tell you why you are now a cool kid for getting it. Alien Swarm is a free Valve game (did I mention you should be downloading it right now) made by Black Cat...

Quick Product Update – Powerball: Gamer

Quick Product Update – Powerball: Gamer

This update is going to be super short and sweet. I promise. It’s been more than two weeks since my last post about the “Powerball: Gamer” and I must say that I am completely in love with it! It hasn’t made me a better gamer, per say, but it has definitely improved my circulation and grip. Both were problems I was beginning to struggle with since I started to sit in front of a PC...

XBLA Indie Game Speed Run

So for those who may follow me on Twitter, which are not many of you, (Self-condemning remark to fish out more followers so I can feel more important) I have been on a Team Fortress 2 and Rock Band 2 binge. Those are my two fall back games when I have nothing better to do, we all have them. Even more awesome is that when I happen to have nothing interesting to play, the Engineer Update and the Creedence Clearwater...

E3 2010: Vindictus

As soon as I heard that Nexon was coming to E3, I was thinking that maybe they were going to unveil a new game that wasn’t free. So far, I’ve seen and heard nothing but good things when it came to anything Nexon. “Maple Story” is a personal fav of mine and I can’t even walk into a Duane Reade, CVS or Rite Aid anymore without buying Nexon Bucks. However, I’m not really sure if...

E3 Editor’s Choice: “Epic Mickey”

Unlike my far cooler colleague, GamerGal, I couldn’t go to E3 and had to sit at home and feverishly follow tweets and my normal 10 million websites to scratch together all the news out there. While I feverishly wait for the New Zelda, Kirby, and Donkey Kong, nothing on the Wii has got me more excited then Junction Point and Disney’s Epic Mickey. The story sounds like the kind of thing Walt Disney himself would pen if he...

E3 Editor’s Choice: “Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective”

Needless to say, the Capcom booth was packed. Since I can remember, everyone loves a good fighting game and of course what had everyone gawking at theCapcom booth was “Marvel vs Capcom 3”. I, on the other hand, was captivated by this little known Nintendo DS game: “Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective”. From the beginning, you’re a corpse trying to unravel the mystery of your own death. You’ve lost your memory but has discovered some new supernatural abilities...

E3 Editor’s Choice: “Dance Central”

Everyone knows my love for Harmonix. It’s not really a secret. You can click on my “GamerGal” tag up there and see countless articles on “Rock Band” and my fanaticism for each and every installment. Harmonix developers are revolutionaries. With each and every game release, Harmonix tries to change how gamers interact with music. “Rock Band” brought together four people to create a band and play together on instrument replicas. “Rock Band 3” will finally bridge the gap between gamers and professional musicians. And now, we’ll be able to dance our hearts out in Harmonix’s upcoming release entitled “Dance Central”

E3 Editor’s Choice: “Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood”

The on-going struggle between the assassins and templars has reached new heights. Ezio Auditore da Firenze is back and a little shaken up from his last encounters. However, he is still much wiser and deadlier than ever. “Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood” continues exactly from where the “Assassin’s Creed II” left off.

The Jesus of Suburbia Finally Hits Rock Band – Green Day Rock Band Review

From the moment the game was announced and it was revealed that you would be able to export the songs and play them in Rock Bands 1 through 3; everyone was totally excited. I could see that excitement whenever I passed by the Rock Band setup at Pax East as they were demoing Green Day: Rock Band. People couldn’t stop talking about how awesome the game was and the shocking part was that this was about two...

Kung Fu Live!

Don’t Be a Zero! Be a Hero! – Kung Fu Live! Preview

For a while now, if anyone talked about motion gaming, everyone would instantly think about Nintendo’s Wii. The Wii has dominated the motion gaming arena but a small group of developers are trying to change that.

I recently had the chance to talk with Teemu Mäki-patola of the Virtual Air Guitar Company and they are extremely excited about finally bringing motion gaming to the Playstation!

Sam And Max 301: The Penal Zone Review

A Cleverly written point and click adventure game with genuinely laugh out loud, clever puzzles and a funny puzzle. I have always had a weird love for point and click adventure game, the smart writing, interesting puzzles (even though 90% can be summarized as give this to him, or combine this with that ),and even the frustration that comes when you just can’t figure out what to do next and you are ready to snap you keyboard, they are all just part of the experience. Unfortunately,...
