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

iOS Shout-Out:Forget-Me-Not

I am in constant search of good games to play while listening to music.  My favorite type of game to playing music to are ones where all you try to do is see how far, or how many points you can get before you die. Luckily that it one of the iPhone’s specialty.  But when I  heard about Forget-Me-Not I got excited. Read the rest of this entry

Roboto, video game review.

Firstly, I have some bad news. All of you who are equipped with older iPhones/iTouchs (such as myself) will not be able to properly run Roboto. Luckily I was able to barrow an iPad from a friend for this review. Thank You anonymous friend!

Roboto is a game that tells the classic platformer tale of jumping around on platforms in a search to find true love. In Roboto you’ll take control of a cute little robot skater. You’ll be able to use your jet skateboard to jump across gaps in the floor, and you can use your blaster to shoot down the malicious robots that you come upon.

Feed Me Oil (2011), video game review.

The Apple App Store is filled with physics based puzzle games. Angry Birds and Cut the Rope two of the more prominent ones, but there are others–some of which are just as good if not better. Enigmo was one of the earlier physics puzzlers, and much of Feed Me Oil draws from the earlier game. But it also has some things in common with another game that was only recently put up onto the App Store, World of Goo.
As with the other two games, the goal in Feed Me Oil is to guide fluids from a pipe to an end location. In both Feed Me Oil and Enigmo you have access to an innovatory of objects that you place to help guide the fluid–oil in Feed Me Oil, and water in Enigmo. Another big difference between Enigmo and World of Goo was the art style. Enigmo was boring looking, it was mechanical and bland, where as World of Goo had a more playful and cartoony art style. Feed Me Oil, thankfully,  follows World of Goo in this category.
Both of the above games were fun and worth the money, but how does the newcomer, Feed Me Oil, stand? 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.

If you like screaming profanities at your phone, League of Evil is for you. If you like hardcore retro style platformers, League of Evil is for you. If you like blocky pixels, League of Evil is for you.

Angry Birds (2009), video game review.

Angry Birds has become one of the biggest games the generation. It’s sold millions (maybe billions) of copies, had two spinoffs, it’s being ported over to the Wii, DS (I’ve even heard Xbox 360), and there’s been talk of a movie. But does it deserve all of it’s fame, it’s accolades? My answer is… Read the rest of this entry
