No, you didn't read the by line wrong, this is Matt here reporting on a 3DS game. You may say to yourself, but Matt, on many, many podcasts you have said you would probably never own a portable system again.…
… and, apparently, Kirby’s return to 1993
While I’m still not sure Uncharted 3 takes my favorite in the series, there’s some to take issue with, but even more to love.
When it comes to platforming, Rayman is no slouch. You don’t need limbs to run, jump, and climb, just a good set of floating hands and feet. We jump in with the Rayman Origins demo, currently available on your favorite gaming networks.
Being chased by a DNA replicating monster is not something most of us would ever really be prepared for. Imagine sitting across from a good friend over a cup of coffee only have their face twist, contort, and explode, revealing a nasty maw of spikes, tentacles, and drool. There is something unsettling about “The Thing” that taps into man’s primordial fear of all things that skitter and move unnaturally…
As soon as I began to play the original GOW I realized that there was something about the game’s blend of action and tactics that set it apart from all other games in the genre. Over the years I’ve beaten both GOW campaigns with a wide various friends, family, and strangers, and still find the experience to be deeply satisfying. While some of the systems introduced in the original GOW were still in their relative infancy, the overall Gears experience was always spectacular. After playing a lot of Gears 3 over the past week I can honestly say that the Gears 1 and 2 were just an appitizer for the feast that is Gears of War 3.
A game that we previewed on our very first podcast, was it worth the wait?
Oh to a be a Marine in space. Relic’s Warhammer 40K: Space Marine appears to be suffering the same fate as the original Dead Space and Platinum’s Vanquish. Even after a salvo of positive reviews (76% meta-score) and good word of mouth, these games all got buried by the avalanche that is strict competition. After sitting down this weekend and playing the heck out of Space Marine, I have to say it was an incredibly good time.
Alice: Madness Returns is the much anticipated follow up (by me, anyway) to 2000’s PC/Mac game American McGee’s Alice – the dark and gritty telling of Alice’s post-Looking Glassadventures in what has now become a twisted version of Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland. The original game had Alice following an anorexic, pierced Cheshire Cat around a grotesque Wonderland, presumably due to Alice’s inclement insanity, slashing her way through the Red Queen’s guards amongst other familiar faces from Carroll’s universe with a bloody knife, and the sequel delivers more of the same.
The highly addictive produce-karate mashup, Fruit Ninja Kinect, is Xbox’s latest offering in the 2011 Summer of Arcade series. Although the game debuted on iOS, and has recently come to the Android market, the Xbox version adds the wrinkle of Kinect functionality — turning this quick finger swiping game into a full body hack and slash. But is it worth the made-up 800 MS points?
Is the new DLC worth your soverigns? We go into the deep roads to find out!
I ventured into the midnight showing of Captain America and can say this, if you were hoping for a little more Iron Man 1 and little less Thor, well then you have gotten your wish. The movie is the origin…
