What’s going on with the Mon Calamari? Find out, sort of.
In the middle of 2011 I found the most overlooked game of 2010.
Reviewing Double Fine’s Trenched actually gave me trench foot! Okay, maybe I didn’t actually get trench-foot (which is nothing to joke about), but I did have such an amazing time playing Trenched that I didn’t move away from the television for a few days.

What is it about Duke Nukem that makes him so special? Simple answer, Duke hasn’t changed.

A spoiler free review of Super – “While it’s far from a “perfect” film, it’s incredibly unique, and at some points moving. Isn’t that why we go to the movies in the first place? On the other hand, Super is an exhausting film that leaves you feeling a bit empty inside. The laughs and violence were spectacular, but they couldn’t really mask the overall somber tone of the movie. The film did a great job of showing us why the world does NOT have super heroes. If you try and fight a criminal with a gun……”
So the 3DS is finally here. And, you know, it's got a 3D capable display without the need for glasses. Great, now where are the games? Pretty much the safe bet with any new Nintendo hardware release is to stick…
Epic Mickey takes a darker look at the world created by the mouse, by taking players to a world inspired by a time before the mouse existed. Gamers will immediately recognize the familiar tenants of adventure platforming, but the unique influences of Disney art and culture give the game a character all it’s own.
