God of War III (2010), video game review.

The God of War series has always been highly praised. God of War II has been called by many the greatest PS2 game of all time. That seems like a pretty hard act to follow. Even more so seeing as this is the teams first PS3 game.
After playing through the HD collection of the first two games my hopes for the third were high. I’d heard lots of good things about it. Other reviewers were giving it 10’s or 9.50’s, I’d seen gameplay and it looked amazing. I had loved the first two games, but I was late to the party and their new game sheen had worn mostly off.
So is God of War III any good? Read on to find out…

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011), movie review.

The first Pirates of the Caribbean movie I loved—it was an instant classic—the second movie was a disappointment, and the third was…the third was weird and confused me. When a movie series comes out with three movies I assume that that’s it, they made a trilogy and now their done, but not the Pirates movies. Read on to find out my thoughts on the movie.

Uncharted 2 (2009), video game review.

There was a lot of hype about Uncharted 2 about a year and a half ago. According to the games case it was given over twenty-five, five-star reviews. It won Game of the Year in many reviews hearts, and was called one of the best games of the generation. Some said that it was like playing an adventure movie. But how does the game hold up after a year and a half? Is it a true, movie like experience? Is it the best game of the generation? Read on to find out… Read the rest of this entry

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Micro (2011), video game review.

The iPhone isn’t exactly known for the triple A quality of its games. Once in a while there’s a game that is good, but rarely is there a game that you could recommend to your non-iPhone gamer friend; even more rarely is there a game that you’d rather play then play games such as Mortal Kombat, or Portal. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP micro is the first. S:SP EP is quite possibly the best game to grace the app store this year, or ever. Read on to learn what I loved most about it.

Special Review: Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta (2011).

The first Gears was a great multiplayer game but it still had its flaws. The second game took away many of those flaws, and with the addition of the hugely popular Horde mode (which has now been copied it almost every game to come out since), it give Halo and Call of Duty a run for their money. And now the third game finally has a concrete release date in September and it has a multiplayer beta that is now running. So, where does this game stand in the huge and ultra competitive world of online shooters?

In Buried, Ryan Reynolds wakes up to find himself trapped underground in a coffin in Iraq. The only source of light he has is an old lighter that he has in his pocket. But that’s not going to last too long. What does he have to do to escape? Is the finished movie as good as the premise? Read on to find out… Read the rest of this entry

Mortal Kombat (2011), video game review.

Blood splatters the screen, arms are pulled off and then used as weapons of death, and heads lay about on the ground. Mortal Kombat has been called one of the most violent games of all time. With fatalities such as, death from all of your skin being pulled off you on two different sides–that claim may be accurate. But is it all just guts and gore, or is there a good game beneath?
