News: Pokemon Games to Play

June 30, 2008

Pokemon has been a significant player in the realm of games.  At one point the highest selling card game on the market, its video games, board games, tv shows, movies, and whole slew of other paraphenalia have made it one of Japan and Nintendo’s biggest cash cows. However, quite often one finds themselves asking which […]

WoW Sad Facts

June 24, 2008

I haven’t posted in forever.  My urge to post something has been lowered seeing as how all I play is WoW.  I played a bit of MGS4 the other day.  God that game is sex, but I won’t post a full review until I’ve beaten the game.  That may take some time. Until then, enjoy […]

Games at a Glance: GTA IV

April 28, 2008

Grand Theft Auto/GTA is probably the most controversial video game series in history. Even more so than Counter-Strike, GTA has become the scape goat whenever someone who once played video games ends up killing someone. Usually the psychos making this claim are right-wing nuts who care more about video game control than gun control. I […]

Game Review: Earth Defense Force 2017

April 25, 2008

Let me get something out in the air: while I am a fan of Japan, its culture, food, history, impact on gaming and animation, etc. I do not like Japanocentricity. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, watch or play anything from Japan: does that game or show take place in Japan? Japanocentricity is […]

Game Review: Super Smash Bros. Brawl

April 7, 2008

For those of you familiar with this blog, or my personal tastes, you will know I am not a fan of the Wii. I think it is an incredibly gimmicky system designed to bring non-gamers into the video game industry. It also is not revolutionary. Swinging a control technology has been around for years, and […]

Halo 3 Mod: Grifball

March 12, 2008

While this is a mod, this is actually an official mod released by Bungie, thanks in part to the guys at RedVSBlue. To describe the game, I’m going to flash back to our youth, or for some of you, last summer.  At camp, we would play Capture the Flag, but we would do so differently.  […]

Games Revisited: Star Wars: Republic Commando

February 7, 2008

I have no problem admitting I’m a Star Wars Geek.  I’ve got T-shirts, Action Figures, and Movie Posters.  However there is one area that any video game fan should also be: that of the Star Wars Video Game Fan.  The series has been around for years, but we’ll skip the early polygonal Star Wars games […]

Call of Duty 4 Online

January 21, 2008

I know, I’ve already done a COD4 Review, however this past weekend my gaming group got together two PS3s and two 50″ HD TVs for “clan” based combat in COD4. We went with the clan name of [B&], which you may need to be a /b/tard to understand. We took turns switching on and off […]

Assassin’s Creed

January 8, 2008

There was a lot of hype going into Assassin’s Creed.  Aside from the fact that producer Jade Raymond is extremely hot, more so for being a video game dork, which in of itself led to a lot of hype, but the unique premise added to this.  The game itself is actually two story lines: you […]

Halo Trilogy

January 2, 2008

Today I am reviewing not just Halo: Combat Evolved, or Halo3, but all three of the games. And I’ll throw in something for Halo Wars from at least what I have seen of the demos. Halo: Combat Evolved was not just an XBox release title; it was the XBox Release Title. It spawned a whole […]
