Fantasia: Music Evolved Review

Since the very beginning of music games, players have wanted to take control of the music in rhythm games rather than just playing along side of it. Games like DJ Hero and Rock Band provide very minimum control and stuff like Wii Music feel more like noise toys than an actual game.  Harmonix and Disney has finally struck a balance of customized music with gameplay in Fantasia: Music Evolved.

E3 2014: Nintendo Lineup

E3 2014: Nintendo Lineup

All aboard the Nintendo Hype Train! Non-stop service from here to Awesometown! In all seriousness, Nintendo had a lot to prove going into E3 2014. 3DS has been doing very well, but the Wii U continues to struggle with a sparse library and dwindling 3rd party support. To combat this, Nintendo has deployed their most diverse E3 line up in a long time. When the Wii U was first announced, one of the features that...

Guild Wars 2 – First Impressions

After painful ramifications to both my wallet and social life, I swore off MMO’s along with their obligatory subscription fees. Needing to play a minimum number of hours just to feel like I got my money’s worth each month along with an end-game based on the backwards concept of acquiring gear in order to pursue even better gear left me feeling confused as to why I would engage in such a masochistic activity, let alone pay for it. So I lived a...

Sleeping Dogs Video Preview

Sleeping Dogs was a game I first encountered while at PAX and loved it. The game promises a cohesive mix of combat inspired from the Batman Arkham games, third person cover shooting, action packed driving and light parkour in an open world framed as a John Woo inspired Hong Kong Action movie.  In it, you play as an undercover cop,  Wei Shen, trying to infiltrate the Triad, walking a thin line between serve and protect, and cutthroat...

Quantum Conundrum Review

It’s hard to not be struck with Déjà vu at the start of Quantum Conundrum. In short, it’s a science themed first person action physics puzzler not unlike the Portal franchise. In fact, Quantum Conudrum’s lead designer Kim Swift, was the co creator of Portal and involved in the making of the Left 4 Dead games at Valve. With this in mind, I want to approach this review respecting the game as a unique entity...

Max Payne 3 Micro Review

In the interest of full disclosure, I haven’t played any of the previous Max Payne games. This fact has less to do with a lack of interest and everything to do with my parents actually taking concern with my emotional development as a kid, taking the time to learn about games before going out buying it for me. You might say my parents were strict, but I like to think that everyone else’s parents that...

E3 2012 – Nintendo Recap

Nintendo’s Press Show today was mixed at best. The show started strong with Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros U, and slowly went downhill with slipping into underwhelming casual offerings SiNG and Wii Fit U. The Nintendo news is not over yet though as Nintendo has a second press briefing featuring their offering for Nintendo 3DS tomorrow as well as more announcements for the Wii U as the week progresses. Check out my current best...
