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

Battlefield 1943 (2009), Playstation 3 review.

I love single-player games and they accomplish a lot of amazing, jaw-dropping, mind-blowing moments. But somethings can only be fully appreciated due to the randomness of online multiplayer. And the master of these kinds of special online moments: Battlefield. 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

Mass Effect 2 (2010), video game review.

Mass Effect 2 changes everything that the original did wrong. Where as the first games combat was bogged down by bad mechanics and lackluster gunplay, the sequel move the gameplay forward and finally makes it feel more like a shooter RPG hybrid, instead of an RPG with some not so great shooting attached.  While they didn’t drastically change-up the way players can manipulate the story, the ability to import your character, along with all of their choices and achievements, from the first game, it gives the player a stronger emotionally attachment to the story… 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

Enslaved (2010), video game review.

Based loosely off a 16th century Chinese novel, Enslaved tells the story of a future in which you can’t go twenty minutes without running in to a malevolent machine wishing to kill you, or slavers ready to kidnap you. The world has been taken over by mechs, and the few survivors that aren’t slavers or the enslaved are scattered across the world in small pockets, desperately trying to survive. You control Monkey; Monkey is a loner. Moving form one place to the next he never stays in any one place for too long for fear that he might be attacked bymechs, or picked up by slaves. Unfortunately no one can avoid danger for long. Read the rest of this entry

Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (2003), movie review.

Whenever somebody asks me what my favorite movie is, I always reply with either Dumb and Dumber, or the Fellowship of the Ring. I’ve seen Dumb and Dumber so many times, that I could probably repeat back the whole movie–not line for line but I’d do my best. 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

Dead Space 2 (2011), video game review.

Twinkle twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are… Never I may life did I imagine that this song would scare me. But the good folks over at Visceral Games did just that…and more. Dead Space 2 is the scarcest thing I’ve encountered since childhood terrors. Read the rest of this entry
