    A Space Odyssey

    Dead Space: Extraction

    A Space Odyssey

    I'm certain I'm not in the minority when I say that when I heard Dead Space was coming to Wii as an on-rails shooter, I was less than thrilled. My initial response was, "why?" The port of Resident Evil 4 made clear just ... Read Full Review

    Dead On

    The Walking Dead: Assault

    Dead On

    The Telltale Walking Dead games have been a wonderful addition to the franchise, but one thing they've been missing are the main characters from the comics/show we have grown so attached to. Walking Dead Assault is defin... Read Full Review

    Journey to the East

    Jade Empire: Hisui no Teikoku

    Journey to the East

    So, I finished Jade Empire last night, and I'm left both amazed and slightly disappointed. The game is perhaps more a role-playing game than any other game under the guise of an RPG, allowing the player to spend tons mor... Read Full Review

    Faster Gratification

    Tenchu Kurenai

    Faster Gratification

    So, I'm not quite in the "next-gen" yet. My family has a Wii, but I'm still mostly playing on one of the three last-gen consoles we own. Most recently, I've been hankering for some really cheesy, Japanese-themed adventur... Read Full Review

    A Fun Train Wreck of a Game

    Resident Evil 6

    A Fun Train Wreck of a Game

    Man, did this game turn out a whole lot differently than I (and many like me) thought it would. When the first trailers hit earlier this year, the appearance of Leon and the darker tone promised a return to the Resident ... Read Full Review

    What Was Born A Classic Remains A Classic.

    Resident Evil 4

    What Was Born A Classic Remains A Classic.

    If you visit the IGN forum for Resident Evil, you'll encounter a few, barnacle-like individuals determined to convince the rest of the gaming community that the entire legion of critics who raved about Resident Evil 4 (R... Read Full Review

    A Complete and Compelling Adventure

    Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions

    A Complete and Compelling Adventure

    Where to begin with this game? It's a fairly old tale for video games at this point, and I did initially give it a whirl on PSP, but the slowdown inherent in that version was a turn-off. Of course, after falling in love ... Read Full Review

    Wii's Golden Age Begins

    LostWinds

    Wii's Golden Age Begins

    WiiWare launched a day before my writing this review, and I'm so very glad the platform is finally here. Though Galaxy was great, and we're still getting some mileage out of Brawl, my family's Wii hasn't seen a whole lot... Read Full Review

    More Than a Nobody

    Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

    More Than a Nobody

    You know what's a shame? When critics knock a game because it's the "pretty boy." If there ever was a pretty boy game series, Kingdom Hearts is it. Don't deny it; you know it's true. Heck, most of what comes out of Squar... Read Full Review

    The Best iOS Has to Offer

    Waking Mars

    The Best iOS Has to Offer

    Waited for the sale before jumping onto this one, but I had my eye on it since it was first announced. I knew the game would be interesting, but man, I wasn't expecting to be quite this impressed. In many ways, Waking... Read Full Review

    Another Be-lated Review of a Great Action-Adventure Game.

    Ninja Gaiden Black

    Another Be-lated Review of a Great Action-Adventure Game.

    About two years ago, the very first screens and info for Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword surfaced. When I learned how the developers intended to utilize the DS for the game, I was hooked. When Dragon Sword finally released, I... Read Full Review

    Anatomy of a So-called DS Masterpiece This review may be a bit premature, but I wasn’t sure when I’d finally get around to toying with the various unlockables in the game. So, I’m pressing on. Herein lie the ramblings... Read Full Review

    Putting the Fun Back in RPG

    Mario & Luigi RPG 3!!!

    Putting the Fun Back in RPG

    September has, without a doubt, been the beginning of this year's holiday greatness, and to be perfectly honest, Scribblenauts was the game I was looking forward to most. I knew I would try Bowser's Inside Story, since I... Read Full Review

    Scribblenauts

    Ambition Over Gameplay

    I greatly anticipate the majority of readers to look at that score, completely ignore my review and give it a thumbs down. That's a shame, too, since many folks will miss out on what I feel are valid issues that probably... Read Full Review

    Art in Motion

    Oboro Muramasa

    Art in Motion

    Muramasa isn't really a difficult game to describe. It's not innovative in terms of gameplay, and it's not terribly deep, either. But it is an incredibly well-polished machine that satisfies on many levels. You can pl... Read Full Review

    Resident Evil: Revelations

    Evil Takes Up Residency on 3DS

    Just put the finishing touches on my first playthrough and I'm now well into my NG+ for the no-herb run. That right there should offer a clear indication of just how much I enjoyed the game, but let me detail exactly why... Read Full Review

    Silly Grown-up, Pokemon Is For Kids!

    Pocket Monsters Diamond

    Silly Grown-up, Pokemon Is For Kids!

    Yeah, you wish! Seriously though, Pokemon Diamond seems to be for just about anyone and everyone. The premier of a true Pokemon RPG (role-playing game) on the DS also marks my first foray into the series. For our anniver... Read Full Review

    Just wanted to chime in quickly regarding this game because folks really need to take notice of Nyxquest. If you enjoyed LostWinds and are up for something a bit more challenging, you'll really want to seriously consider... Read Full Review
