Trials Fusion - Xbox One Review

The game states: Welcome to the Future. Question is, have we arrived with Trials Fusion?

Ethan: Meteor Hunter - Vita Review

Ethan finally brings his brand of puzzle solving and platforming to the handheld format. Does it pay off?

Cloudbuilt - PC Review

Does this futuristic adventure excel, or does it fall somewhat short of the mark?

Demon Gaze - Vita Review

Mostly throwback with a splash of new, this dungeon crawler is very satisfying.

Super Street Fighter IV - Nintendo 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.
