    From Pandora with Love

    Borderlands 2 (Deluxe Vault Hunter's Collector's Edition)

    From Pandora with Love

    Stop me if you've heard this one: A commando, an assassin, a siren and a gunzerker all walk into a bar in Sanctuary... The first Borderlands back in 2009 by developer Gearbox Software blindsided everyone that loved a ... Read Full Review

    Game of the Year. We Weren't Even Testing for That.

    Portal 2

    Game of the Year. We Weren't Even Testing for That.

    Every now and then as an artistic medium grows into itself, inevitably it suffers an overabundance of parody. Street Fighter revolutionized the competitive head-to-head nature of video games. Call of Duty, Doom, and Half... Read Full Review

    In space, no on can hear you kick ass.

    Dead Space 2

    In space, no on can hear you kick ass.

    It's resident evil meets Aliens. Like something out of H.R. Geiger's psyche, this game has me so tensed and watching every corner, every vending machine, and every shadow, petrified to open the next corridor hatch. And I... Read Full Review

    You had me at hadoken...

    Street Fighter IV

    You had me at hadoken...

    There are certain moments in a gamer's life they can remember with crystalline clarity. Some get goosebumps whenever they hear the reggae-esque Super Mario theme. Others get a wee bit misty whenever they press up, up, do... Read Full Review

    "Well today I'm gonna be picking up my Hemi Roadrunner. That's right, I said Hemi..."

    Burnout Paradise

    "Well today I'm gonna be picking up my Hemi Roadrunner. That's right, I said Hemi..."

    There's that old saying where you compare something to an auto-wreck and then it's followed up by mentioning "and yett, you couldn't look away." Probably a perfect synopsis of Burnout: Paradise. With fenders, wheels and ... Read Full Review

    "I'm Scared, Sarge." "We're all scared, son..."

    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

    "I'm Scared, Sarge." "We're all scared, son..."

    War is hell. Then the question is why is Call of Duty 4 such pure heaven? We'll push the graphics aside for a moment (which is a VERY difficult shove considering how beautiful they are) and trudge ahead to the rendezvous... Read Full Review

    No Guts, No Glory...

    Contra

    No Guts, No Glory...

    When Contra debuted in February 1988, I was 12 years old and never really knew the pleasure of pumping xenophobes full of lead. I unwrapped the cellophane ]packaging, jazzed at the artwork on the cover of two hardcore c... Read Full Review

    Much Needed Mayhem...

    Unreal Tournament III

    Much Needed Mayhem...

    Alot of FPS fans will poo-poo UT3 since during the period since it's inception shooter games have become a little more duck and cover. But Unreal 3 is a nice change of pace with an all-out frag-fest with a nice amount of... Read Full Review

    Axelay

    A classic that snuck under the table...

    Shooters come and go. Something about a single ship against an entire armada and relentless odds seem to get me all misty-eyed and think about that hokey but likable 80's movie "The Last Starfighter." But Axelay had grea... Read Full Review

    Pure eye-candy.

    Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

    Pure eye-candy.

    Sometimes a game doesn't have to be perfect. Sometimes it has that certain swagger or quirky charm that keeps your controller-gripping, Cheetos-snatching fingers busy for days. that would be Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. F... Read Full Review
