    or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Rail Shooter

    Tsumi to Batsu: Uchuu no Koukeisha

    or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Rail Shooter

    The laudable and well-known mantra of Treasure Games betrays the game's surprises, as numerous and epic in scope as they may be: take whatever random, off-beat genre you find engaging and make a game within that definiti... Read Full Review

    Hey! Look! Listen! 3D! Look! Hey! Depth! Listen!

    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

    Hey! Look! Listen! 3D! Look! Hey! Depth! Listen!

    For years I hated Ocarina of Time without knowing why. It was curious because even as a young child I was predisposed to introspection and metacognition; such a baffling lack of love for something that should be, on all ... Read Full Review

    "3DS, you're small time."<br />
-Leon S. Kennedy, upon hearing about his absence in this game

    Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D

    "3DS, you're small time."<br /> -Leon S. Kennedy, upon hearing about his absence in this game

    I'm of the school of thought that elevates the renovation of the Resident Evil series as one of the greatest and most powerful changes in the gaming industry. It's certainly arguable that Resident Evil 4 is the greatest ... Read Full Review

    Angelic fruit makes you toot

    Dragon Quest IX: Hoshizora no Mamoribito

    Angelic fruit makes you toot

    The Dragon Quest series has always had an back-and-forth relationship with scope. One game promises a grand, multi-generational epic with a story focused quest, while the next makes one of the most powerful skill and job... Read Full Review

    Nintendo's ambitions are blasting off again!

    Pocket Monsters White

    Nintendo's ambitions are blasting off again!

    Pokemon is reliable. That's the nice way of putting it. It doesn't change much, but you know that it will be there if you ever want to play it. Perhaps that's why it sells millions of copies year after year - because as ... Read Full Review

    Now You're Thinking With Sequels (Spoiler-Free)

    Portal 2

    Now You're Thinking With Sequels (Spoiler-Free)

    On days when I used to be truly bored I would wander my web browser over to the Gaming Reddit where I could find a large manner of all sorts of gaming related images and posts. This habit came to end with the release of ... Read Full Review

    Sir, it's worse than you know. It's portable now.

    Persona 3 Portable

    Sir, it's worse than you know. It's portable now.

    Pathetic. That's the only way I can describe myself. Persona 3 FES on the PlayStation 2 destroyed my life for a week or two, and it quickly jumped up the ranks to my favorite game of all time. Persona 4 was just about as... Read Full Review

    I AM THE GOD OF WAR!

    God of War II

    I AM THE GOD OF WAR!

    God of War II, to the uninitiated, comes off as that guy at the frat party who seems adamant in his ability to bellow his way into the female party-goers pants. Few action games have such bravado and bluster, and even fe... Read Full Review

    Okay gang, let's go kill the devil.

    Diablo II

    Okay gang, let's go kill the devil.

    Light from the monitor shines across the landscape, throwing shadows up the wall. The steady stream of mouse clicking permeates the near silence of the room. Over the hum of the hard drive, a slow stream of curses are he... Read Full Review

    There'll be war, mah boayh.

    Final Fantasy XII

    There'll be war, mah boayh.

    There's a definite power behind the name Final Fantasy. Ignoring the intentional contradiction behind a game called "Final" with a number after it, the games themselves never disappoint to stir up the hive, with reinvent... Read Full Review

    Pretty lights? Instant 9.5.

    The Polynomial

    Pretty lights? Instant 9.5.

    When I close my eyes I can see The Polynomial. Its soothing, floating dots hovering about in the voids of space simply whip past my perspective, pulsating to some unknown beat in the background. And then I open my eyes, ... Read Full Review

    The Stroggs are coming, the Stroggs are coming!

    Enemy Territory: Quake Wars

    The Stroggs are coming, the Stroggs are coming!

    We should probably be thankful. After conquering the asymmetrical-team-based first person shooter genre in the form of the freeware expandalone Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, developer Splash Damage decided to refine thei... Read Full Review

    I actually DID catch them all at some point. No, really.

    Pocket Monsters Aka

    I actually DID catch them all at some point. No, really.

    The year was 1997. An unsuspecting public was unaware of the looming danger. It wasn't until the first boxes started popping up in various retailers that the impending doom was fully realized. I'm discussing, of cours... Read Full Review

    There she goes; there she goes again

    Metroid Prime Trilogy

    There she goes; there she goes again

    I just got home from Iron Man 2 (which was pretty good, by the way) and jumped right into Metroid Prime Trilogy for the Nintendo Wii. I learned two very important things by doing this. One, just because you have two piec... Read Full Review

    WUAAAAHOOOO!

    Super Mario Galaxy 2

    WUAAAAHOOOO!

    Man, you know what? Nintendo's got a very dirty little secret. Whatever the Super Mario Galaxy 2 team is smoking, they had better share. This is seriously unfair. Certainly such unlimited creativity was the result of ... Read Full Review

    Is dread flammable? Well, Burn it nonetheless.

    Persona 3: Fes

    Is dread flammable? Well, Burn it nonetheless.

    Persona 3 kicks off with several hours of exposition, featuring lavishly drawn anime cutscenes, go-get-'em male protagonists, busty chicks in tight school clothing, and lines upon lines of dialogue read to you in well ca... Read Full Review
