Shadowgate - PC Review

This throwback to the NES classic hits almost all the right notes

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 - Vita Review

The original game was charming, but flawed. Re;Birth 1 fixes almost all of that.

Akiba's Trip - PS3 Review

It's like playing an anime

Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar - PC Review

Some good takes on the tactical genre, but somewhat lacking in depth in the end

Whispering Willows - PC Review

A memorable, haunting point-and-click adventure

War of the Roses - PC Review

War of the Roses is an interesting title, because it takes a few chances that generally pay off, makes use of perhaps one of the most popular gaming modes on the market right now, and feels like a game with some as of yet untapped potential.  So what is War of the Roses?  It is an online experience that feels to me like a Battlefield or Call of Duty game, but with swords and bows instead of rifles and machine guns.

Happy Halloween!

Good morning, everyone.  It is that time of the year when it gets really cold out and people want to hype up small children so their parents go a little bit more crazy than usual.  I have long enjoyed scary movies and games, and Halloween tends to bring about an abundance of both every year.

Darksiders - Xbox 360 Review

Just a quick review of some limited time I had with the first Darksiders in the past.  Had a far more hectic weekend than I planned with a wedding and some other stuff going on - which sadly meant almost no gaming outside of my iPhones games since we were on the road a lot.  With our youngest still doing the Trick or Treat thing, this week will no doubt continue the feeling of being busy as Halloween approaches, but here is something to tide you over in the meantime.  Hope you had a great weekend!

I never bought Darksiders, and I will admit I have never completed it.  Like when I reviewed Enslaved: Odyssey to the West this was just one of those titles I was never convinced of to buy, so I played it at a friend's house on and off.  Therefore, I will not give this game a real detailed review seeing as I spent only a handful of hours with it, but I have played enough and seen enough to develop a pretty solid opinion of the game.
