Interview With Cliff Bleszinski

Back like a month ago I got to interview the legendary Cliff Bleszinski of Epic Games, to talk about whats new and what they have been up to. Since my discussion they have announced some cool stuff about multiplayer, delayed the game, and closed the Save Carbine contest.  This article was was originally going to be in the print release of the magazine, but due to some size constraints in the section, we couldn’t weasel it it. That said,...

PAX Prime 2010 Round up

So PAX Prime in Seattle this year is nearly over and we got a bunch of surprises this year from the show. Duke Nukem Lives Again: After much rumor and speculation, Take 2 finally confirmed that Duke Nukem is alive and well in the hands of far more financially responsible developer, Gearbox! The title was playable on the show floor and is expected to be released in 2011. Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath goes HD: The cult...

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 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.

Check Out My Hardware – Pax East 2010 Coverage

PAX East came and went this past weekend (March 26th – 28th)  and for those who are unaware of what exactly PAX East was, here’s an excerpt from their Wikipedia page: The Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) is a semi-annual gamer festival held in Washington state, USA, and Boston, Mass., USA. PAX was created by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, the authors of the Penny Arcade webcomic, because they wanted to attend a show that gave equal attention to console gamers, computer gamers, and tabletop gamers. [Penny Arcade Expo...

Fairy Tale Characters Gone WILD! – Fairy Tale Fights Review

Just like most girls you know, I am no exception. I [heart] cute and cuddly things! I also [heart] seeing cute cuddly things do some pretty gruesome stuff. I’ve broken it down to a pretty simple equation: (Cute + Cuddly) ^Gore = Awesome! The Happy Tree Friends are a perfect example. The Tree Friends are a group of cutesy woodland creatures that are always getting completely disemboweled. Each cute-filled episode ends in a miraculously, glorious...

Assassin’s Creed II Review – The Easiest Way to Visit Italy Without Having to Go Through Customs

I just realized that I never posted up my thoughts on Assassin’s Creed II. It’s only after I purchased the recently released DLC of “Battle of Forli” that I remembered that I had this draft sitting around, just itching to be published. It’s been awhile since I played through the first game but ever since I finished Assassin’s Creed, I had been longing to get my hands on the next installment. I endlessly checked through...

Confirmed: Green Day: Rock Band. Yay?

Confirmed: Green Day: Rock Band. Yay?

It was all over the internet hours before the Spike VGA awards and now it’s official, the next band to get their own stand alone Rock Band title will be Green Day. While I am still holding out hope for a Queen or Muse Rock Band, hint hint, I’m ok with a Green Day game. I own all their albums, go to all the shows, sing all the songs, so I am a fan. I’m...

It Might Be Worth a Horse Punch – Darkest of Days Review

It Might Be Worth a Horse Punch – Darkest of Days Review

Darkest of Days pitches you neck-deep in a Soldier-and-Indian-esque battle right from the beginning. You struggle to survive the fight until, eventually, you are narrowed you and your army pals find yourselves helplessly over run. Game Over! Ok, not Game Over… A time portal opens up and a space man, of sorts, rescues you and takes you to future, where time travel is nothing more than any other ordinary Tuesday. But you were saved for...
