Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 - PlayStation 3 Review

I will start right off by saying that I am not a big fan of the Naruto manga books or television show.  It is not that I dislike it or have anything against anime - it is just that I have never sat down to take any of it in.  My older two in particular are fans of the series and both enjoy anime, so I picked this up largely figuring they might give it a shot.

Some new Madden 13 Screenshots

I'm a huge NFL fan and almost always look forward to the release of the next Madden game.  Say what you will about the series never updating or doing anything new, but I have wound up getting it almost every year and I am planning to continue that trend again this year.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron - Lots of Screenshots

I really enjoyed Transformers: War For Cybertron (you can read the review here if you're interested).  As a result, I've been keeping something of an eye on the upcoming Transformers: Fall of Cybertron game.

What's shaking at Otaku Gaming

And over at Otaku Gaming, I have had quite a few new posts go up over the last week or so.  My latest one?  Good news for Final Fantasy fans who have been looking forward to Final Fantasy Versus XIII.  Things did not seem so rosy last week when rumors the game had been 'quietly cancelled' surfaced, but a new article from IGN states that the game is alive and well.

Risen - Xbox 360 Review

This is a game that I really wanted to like more than I did.  With all the recent talk about Risen 2, I thought it might be a good time to post this review that I have had on my mind for quite some time now.  I have heard that this was a title that was better on PC than Xbox 360, but it is for the latter system I played it.

What is Risen?  It is an open-world action-RPG set against a somewhat generic but pleasant fantasy world.  How long does it take to beat?  That much I'm unsure of.  There were some points of technical excellence, but some failings as well.  I logged about 25-30 hours with Risen before I simply lost interest in it in favor of some other games.
