Madden 15 - Xbox One Review

It looks good, but how does it stack up to the prior years?

Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star - PS3 Review

This ambitious RPG might not be for everyone, but is worth giving a chance

Lords of the Black Sun - PC Review

The potential is there, but so are plenty of missed opportunities

The title might say 'Ultimate Evil', but the game is oh-so-good

Assume the role of a ship - it may sound strange, but is worth trying out

Super Street Fighter IV - 3DS Review

What - what?  Didn't I just review this game like 5 minutes ago in another post?

Well, kind of - but not.  I picked up Street Fighter IV shortly after it released some time ago, and then traded it in.  Then when my wife got me my 3DS for Christmas last year, she picked up a slew of games for me (rough life, eh?).  One of them was Super Street Fighter IV.  So, this was the first of the Capcom reiterations of the Street Fighter IV series.  Normally, I do not know if I would bother to write up a full review for this new version, but the key for me is that it is on a new system, with a new audience while having more than just superficial tweaks to the original formula.

Street Fighter - Happy 25th Anniversary

I was not planning on getting a post out today.  I was going to let my Street Fighter IV review sit at the top of the mountain for an extra day before I did my next Street Fighter review tomorrow.  Then I stumbled onto something when I was surfing the web early this morning - but the original Street Fighter video game was released in the arcade on August 30th, 1987 - so happy 25th birthday Street Fighter!

Street Fighter IV - Xbox 360 Review

I picked this title up for Xbox 360 for one reason (usually if a game has an online mode, I grab it for PS3), and one reason only at the time - one of my best friends growing up was a huge Street Fighter fan, just like I was.  At the time, he only had an Xbox 360.  He was always better than I was, usually by a narrow margin.  If we played 5 games, he would win three.  I almost always used Ryu, he would break out Ken.  Fireballs and dragon punches ensued.

Street Fighter III: Third Strike - Online Edition - PSN Review

I first played this version of Street Fighter on my Sega Dreamcast years ago.  I recall being a bit thrown by it at first.  I had spent so much time playing Street Fighter II and its fifty variants that I had grown incredibly comfortable with a handful of characters like Ryu, Ken, Cammie and Guile.  I figured my Street Fighter II experience would translate well to this new game, but that was only half-true.
