This trip down the Oregon Trail may seem a lot different...even unattractive...but it still scratches that itch.
The Oregon Trail is a game I grew up on. In elementary school I would always try to get my school work done as soon as possible so I could hop onto an old school Apple computer to play some Oregon Tra...
Fire Emblem: Kakusei
An early contender for game of the year, Fire Emblem: Awakening is the reason to own a 3DS.
I wanted to wait until I played through most of this game before reviewing it, and while I don't think it's a perfect experience, I do think that Fire Emblem: Awakening is an excellent game. Keep in m...
Resident Evil: Revelations
Resident Evil Lite, plain and simple.
One of the games that I really wanted to get a 3DS for was Resident Evil: Revelations. Being a huge fan of the series, the reviews I've seen for it make it out to be the second coming of Resident Evil...
Pushmo is one of those few games that comes along that is both incredibly simple and incredibly addictive.
Every once in awhile a game comes along that seems so simple, but is so much more than the sum of its parts. Games like Zuma, Peggle, Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes, and Plants vs. Zombies come to m...
Super Mario 3D Land
Super Mario 3D Land is the definitive 3DS title. If you want to see what the system is capable of, get this game.
If one thing can always be said of Nintendo, it is that they are consistent. With each new system comes a game or two from their mainstay franchises. Whether it be Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, or in t...
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Lack of depth and a surprisingly large amount of bugs hold back XCOM: Enemy Unknown from tactical greatness.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown wasn't a game I heard much about prior to its release. But being as it was worked on by both 2K and Firaxis, I really wanted to check it out. After playing the demo, I was immediat...
Unit 13 has its downsides, but it is still probably the best shooter on the Vita thus far.
Unit 13 is one of the few shooter experiences on the PS Vita thus far. I'm happy to say that, while it has its problems, it is a mostly fun experience. Not only that, but it is probably the best shoot...
Shin Sangoku Musou Next
Dynasty Warriors Next is one Vita exclusive you should check out if you haven't already.
Dynasty Warriors Next wasn't a game I was super excited about when I had my Vita. The style of these games just usually isn't for me. But when I gave it a try, I was very surprised. Not only is the ga...
Resident Evil 6
Resident Evil 6 may not be the best game in the series, but the intricate story will keep you interested until the end.
I wasn't expecting much when it came to Resident Evil 6. With so many negative reviews, I figured I would just rent this, say I gave it a shot, and move on to something else. I was actually pleasantly...
Assassin's Creed III
While the change of scenery is very much welcome, AC3 suffers from what dragged the previous games in the series down.
Assassin's Creed is one series of games that I always feel like it never ends up being as great as it should be. With the original, I thought it was a great idea, but a poor execution. AC2 was by far ...
A lot of changes set Borderlands 2 apart from its predecessor, but not all of these changes are positive.
Borderlands 2 is a game that really deserves a lot of praise. Not many sequels stray far from what made the first game in a series successful, and in many ways Borderlands 2 doesn't either. However, t...
Mass Effect 2
You can do better than this, Bioware... (P.S. EA is not good for you)
Mass Effect 2 was a game that I was initially pretty excited about when I heard it was coming to the PS3. It had such a big following amongst 360 users that I was anxiously awaiting this game to be re...
Saints Row: The Third
Saints Row: The Third may take place in a different city, but it feels a little too much like the second game.
Saints Row: The Third, by all imaginable standards, should be a big step up from the second game. The problem is...it isn't. Fans of the second Saints Row game will find out after a few minutes of exp...
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
A game that is disappointing on multiple levels, Modern Warfare 3 is not worth your time nor money.
I have to admit that I'm a bit of a hypocrite. The first Call of Duty game I ever played was Modern Warfare 2. I had only had my PS3 for a few months, and I dismissed that game as just another popular...
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
The third installment of Uncharted is a solid shooter, but has a cliche story with noticeable plot holes.
The Uncharted series has become one of my favorites when it comes to the PS3 exclusives. The second game was one of the first I played on my PS3, and it was one of the greatest games I've ever played....
An unpolished game that combines the style Borderlands made famous with the bland combat of Dead Rising.
Dead Island was a game that I really wanted to give a try, even though I'll admit that I'm bored to death with the whole zombie thing. I came very close to buying it, but I'm glad I decided not to. Wh...
Batman: Arkham City
Batman: Arkham City is a definite positive evolution from the first, which is no easy feat for games these days.
The one thing that kept me from initially wanting to get Batman: Arkham City was because of the first game. Don't get me wrong, I think the first game is one of the best games of this generation. I ju...
Everything about Portal 2 makes it a great game. I just wish there was more to do...
Portal 2 is the sequel to a min-game of sorts that was included with Half-Life 2 a few years ago. To be honest, when I first heard about this game, I wasn't expecting much. The original game was fun, ...
Though not the most original, The Baconing is the most hilarious Deathspank adventure yet.
Deathspank has become one of my favorite series of games on current consoles. Between the humorous dialogue, quirky items, and overall silliness, it's hard not to fall for the charm of these action/ad...
God of War: Ghost of Sparta
Ghost of Sparta is another fun adventure like you'd expect, though probably the worst of the series to date.
Ghost of Sparta is the most recent addition to the God of War franchise. While I got rid of my PSP before I had a chance to play this, I was happy they re-released it on the PS3. After playing it, I w...
Rage shies away from greatness by sticking to the outdated style and blandness of single player pure shooters.
It's been a pretty dry summer for games, and after playing the new Battlefield 3 beta, I was itching to get my hands on a new shooter. So I thought to myself...well, I could get Battlefield 3 or CODMW...
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
While it does little to get out of the shadow of the original, Human Revolution is a game that should not be missed.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a game that I have been looking forward to for quite some time now. The original Deus Ex is my favorite game of all time, and as far as I was concerned, this prequel had s...
Catherine is another masterfully crafted game from Atlus that will have you hooked until the end.
Few games come along that not only present a different style of gameplay, but make you want to sit in front of your TV until you see it through until its conclusion. Catherine is one such game. It's r...
Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012
Possessing a majority of recycled content and unimproved game mechanics, MTG '12 is not worth upgrading to.
I'll admit I was a big fan of Magic: The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers that came out last year on the PSN. Other than a couple of minor complaints, it was an all around great MTG simulator. Wi...
While inFamous 2 is a pretty solid game, it's quite disappointing compared to the original.
Well, it's finally happened. I didn't think it would, but I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later. Ladies and gentlemen...I agree with Tom McShea's criticisms on this game (que the "dun dun dun...
Duke Nukem Forever
For a game that was built up this much, I don't think anything could have met those expectations
Alright, let's be honest. Duke Nukem Forever is a game that many, like myself, have been looking forward to for what seems like forever (no pun intended). Considering that this was supposed to be the ...
LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
A fun and worthy sequel to the first two Lego Star Wars games.
Lego Star Wars 3 follows the animated series based around the Clone Wars. While I have never watched this show, I am interested in doing so after playing this game. You know a Lego game is great when ...
LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues
Easily the worst Lego game of this generation of consoles.
Much like Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, this game was a tremendous disappointment. Now I'm sure you're probably thinking, wait a minute, it's a Lego game. It's not like you have to do a lot rig...
WWE All Stars
All Stars is a blast at first, but the novelty wears off quickly
Being a big wrestling fan and a fan of wrestling games, I thought All Stars would be a pretty fun game despite the silly physiques and outrageous moves. Well, unfortunately I was wrong. All Stars is o...
L.A. Noire is Rockstar's best game to date, though it has some minor problems and runs out of steam long before the end.
I've said this before, but I'd like to say again that I am not a huge fan of Rockstar's games. To date, the only games of theirs that I have enjoyed have been Bully and Red Dead Redemption. And now th...
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game
Lego Pirates is another worthwhile addition to this library of games.
If the Lego games are one thing, it's that they're consistent. If you've played the other games in the series, you shouldn't see anything too new here. In fact, this game felt like a throwback to Lego...
Mortal Kombat dares to return to its roots, and the result is a great blend of the best aspects of all past games.
Mortal Kombat is billed to be the return to the series' roots. In many ways this is the case, but we also see a lot of influence from later games in the series. While some aspects of recent MK games h...
Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes
Combat that is simple to learn yet takes hours to master makes this game immensely addictive.
Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes is a great game that was originally released on the Nintendo DS, but has recently come to the PS3 and 360. After playing the demo, I couldn't believe how much it sucke...
The Sly Trilogy
Although I never played Sly on the PS2, I'm having a blast with these classic games.
The Sly collection is a trilogy of games based around Sly the raccoon, his band of thieves, and his enemies. I wasn't really sure if I wanted to play this since I'm not a huge fan of platformers outsi...
Homefront is surprisingly good in some areas, very dated in others.
Homefront was a game that I really wanted to get when it first came out. The premise to it had me hooked. After reading some reviews for it, however, I decided to wait and just put it on my Gamefly qu...
Dungeon Hunter: Alliance
We finally have a great hack 'n slash/dungeon crawler on the PS3, and it's well worth playing.
I was a little skeptical in getting Dungeon Hunter: Alliance like I am with most PSN games, especially since there wasn't really a demo to play. I'm glad I took the plunge though, because everything a...
A shallow package with a few breathtaking moments, but as a whole, Vanquish feels like a demo compared to other games.
Once again Sega has proven that their games show some promise, but ultimately pale in comparison to the games that make up their competition. While there have been a few exceptions of late, Vanquish c...
X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Uncaged Edition)
The gameplay is superb, but you'll be ready for the end long before the closing credits.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is yet another game that seeks to cash in on the God of War/Devil May Cry/etc. formula. Granted while it blatantly rips off this style, it does succeed in breaking the stigma ...
Jurassic: The Hunted
Although a better shooter than the disappointing Turok, it hardly has any personality to it at all.
Jurassic: The Hunted certainly does look like a fun game at first glance. Traversing an island full of dinosaurs is what a lot of people would like to do in a game. But something did make me wonder ab...
BioShock 2: Minerva's Den
An excellent addition to Bioshock 2 that almost feels like a whole new game in and of itself.
I'll keep this pretty brief. If you want to know my opinions about Bioshock 2, look up my review for it. Minerva's Den is a short story that takes place during the fall of Rapture over the course o...
