2011’s outdatedreviews Game of the Year Awards!!!

A lot of great games came out last year. Shooter fans sat nestled in their dens getting in some personal time with the latest iteration of the blockbuster Call of Duty franchise. Fantasy lovers spent countless hour roaming through all of upper Tamriel in the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. But if neither of those games grabbed you there were plenty of others grabbing. Uncharted 3, Skyward Sword, Portal 2, Gears of War 3, and those are only a few of the vast amount of games released in 2011.

So no matter if you liked Battlefield more than Call of Duty, you really can’t argue that 2011 was an amazing year for gamers.

But something we can argue about…What the best game of the year was.

So here it goes: the 2011 outdatedreviews Game of the Year awards. Read the rest of this entry

Catherine (2011), Playstation 3 review.

By looking at the cover a lot of people I’m sure have pasted Catherine off as being juvenile and purely shock-value. From the box-art the game looks like it is a Japanese porn game. And while the game does have some fairly minor sexual themes, the core of the game is much more. Read the rest of this entry

In a nutshell: Assassin’s Creed: Revelations (2011) PS3 version.

Assassin’s Creed II is one of my all time favorite games . AC: Brotherhood was good but not nearly as good as II was. Read the rest of this entry

In a nutshell: Skyrim (2011) PS3 version.

Welcome to the first edition of “In a nutshell.” This is what I will post if I don’t have time to write a full-length review, or maybe the game just doesn’t warrant a full review. But what this essentially is, is a smaller review format.

Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry

Batman: Arkham City (2011), video game review.

For this review I am trying a slightly different review format. Some of you may recognize it from IGN and that is because I’m using that same format. Please leave comments on how you like it… Read the rest of this entry

Sucker Punch (2011), movie review.

Honestly, I didn’t know what to think of Sucker Punch before I saw it. Having seen it, I’m still struggling to understand what I just watched. Read the rest of this entry

Gears of War 3 (2011), video game review.

In 2007 if you had asked me what my favorite video game was I probably would have said some Nintendo game or an early Playstation game. Fast forward to winter of 2008 and the only game I was playing was Gears of War 2, where I had racked up over a thousand rounds of multiplayer…offline. So naturally since Gears 3 came out earlier this week it has completely consumed my life.

Gears of War 3 may well be the greatest third-person shooter to come out on any system, let alone the Xbox 360. Packed with a ton of great modes, including the new four-player campaign and Beast mode, there’s a lot to love in Gears 3. And even if it was the same old game as the last one, only reskinned, I’d probably still have the same amount of playtime. But luckily…its much much more. Read the rest of this entry
