Review: Smart As

I had a review for Smart As about 95% complete on Sunday afternoon as Hurricane Sandy took a hard left towards New Jersey leaving us on the shoreline in Connecticut on the windy side of the storm.  I had to add a few pictures, correct a few grammatical errors and then figure out how to have the … Continue reading

Review: Dokuro (JPN)

I love a good puzzle-platformer, so much so that if I were tasked with designing my ideal game, it would probably involve a fair amount of jumping and puzzling. I do, however, have a significant beef with the direction the genre has taken in recent times. The problem is that somewhere along the line, the … Continue reading

For your Video Blog #2: VIDEOGAMES!

This is 99% ps3 talk as that’s what I can show with my streaming equipment. But if you care about such things, games discussed (and sometimes shown) include LittleBigPlanet Karting, Resonance of Fate, Starhawk and LOTR: War in the North. If you like it click through and comment or give me the thumb.

Review: Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

In the world of videogames, like most things, expectations can make or break the reality of something. I remember when the first Fable game came out on the original Xbox; there was such hyperbole about what it accomplished that when we all put the disc into our systems and it was merely an action RPG … Continue reading

Review – Resistance: Burning Skies

Resistance: Burning Skies is a strange amalgam of expectations, delusions and corporate ineptitude.  It also happens to be a pretty decent game, if you allow it to be. This game, more than any Vita title before it, is all about the attitude you bring into it. There seem to be two factions in terms of expectations … Continue reading

The ports that no one asked for: Lego Harry Potter and Supremacy MMA reviewed

The launch of any new system brings with it some weird game releases that make you wonder what the heck they were thinking.  This has been compounded with the Vita, which at this point in its life-cycle really can only be described as a niche device. Most of the world doesn’t want to spend $300+ … Continue reading

Review – F1 2011 (Reviewed by ex-EGM editor Greg Sewart)

Editor’s note:  This review is written by the one and only Greg Sewart, former editor of Electronic Gaming Monthly and currently found on the Player One Podcast.  It was a personal honor that he agreed to do this for and we are forever appreciative.  Not only does Greg bring a strong game writing pedigree with … Continue reading

Review – Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat on the Vita creates an interesting problem for the platform. It is, of course, a port of the wildly successful (and fun) PS3 version that came out last year, complete with all of the DLC and a whole new challenge tower that takes advantage of interesting features of Vita hardware. The fact that … Continue reading

Review – FIFA Soccer

FIFA on the Vita presents something of a conundrum. It’s a game I feel I can recommend without reservation to the casual fan of footba…uh…soccer (blecch). However, if you are the obsessive type, who loves soccer, buys every instalment of FIFA and plays it all year round, I feel the need to be a tiny … Continue reading

Review – Sumioni

The Vita has a few contenders for “greatest waste of potential” – Modnation not being online, Unit 13 having a generic ‘modern warfare’ theme and Ridge Racer deciding that a career mode was soooo 2011… but none of these can take the top spot from Sumioni. This game is so close to greatness, yet so … Continue reading
