    Krater

    I can't help but feel disappointed in Krater... My darkzero review.

    With Diablo III out and still hanging in people's minds – which is evident by the gamers still playing – you must have balls of steel, have something special or simply be mental to release an action-RPG dungeon crawler s... Read Full Review

    Alan Wake's American Nightmare

    Even though the game has lost its thrilling moments, Alan Wake's American Nightmare is still entertaining shooter.

    The PC version of Alan Wake hit on Steam a week before this sequel was bound for release on Xbox Live Arcade. For whatever reason, it took a long time coming for Mr. Wake to move his torch shining skills to the PC. As a ... Read Full Review

    Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention is one of the best games to have on the system. My Darkzero review.

    The future for Sony's PlayStation Vita might not be looking too bright at the moment as the games we know are planned for the system remain dateless. Luckily for Vita fans, Nippon Ichi Software has you covered with its l... Read Full Review

    Dirt: Showdown is a different kind of Dirt. It's a more raw and dirty Dirt that takes itself less seriously.

    The Dirt series from Codemasters has had an interesting evolution since the first title arrived in 2007. Originally Colin McRae: Dirt, the game was filled with different events that featured a range of vehicles, such as ... Read Full Review

    Blades of Time is a better game than X-Blades, but not by much. My darkzero review.

    If you have a good memory, you might remember a mediocre hack and slash game that went by the name of X-Blades that came out in 2009 for both the PS3 and Xbox 360. The game wasn't any good as it suffered from bad repetit... Read Full Review

    Prototype 2 is fun when you're freely able to rummage the city, but what's built around that isn't that great.

    Bloodforge has an interesting premise, but can't get the gameplay right.

    They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and there's no doubt that development studio Climax has been inspired by Sony's God of War series for Bloodforge. It's not just the gameplay that's strikingly familia... Read Full Review

    A gripping story, a dark, gritty comic book look and Telltale's understanding of the Walking Dead makes this game great.

    Telltale Games couldn't have timed the release of The Walking Dead – a new videogame based on Robert Kirkman's award winning series – any better for me. After the excellent finishing of The Walking Dead TV show's second ... Read Full Review

    It is surreal how fast time flies. It's nearly a year since I bought a new PC to play The Witcher 2 on full settings. I personally felt that The Witcher 2 was robbed from winning the best RPG of 2011. Everyone seems to h... Read Full Review
