It was really nice to finally have story issues revealed and to know what was going on, but I was a little disapointed at the limited game environment. And I'm really not sure where the game has left to go after this installment, but Erica was still a pretty impressive gumshoe. Her 'assistant' wasn't too bad either. It was really awesome to see how the story finally came together. Read More.
Metro: Last Light is a damn good game but it squanders what it has going on for it. While it might technically speaking be a more solid gaming experience than its predecessor it seems to suffer in the game design department which is a shame. That said this is still an amazing game that anyone who enjoys shooters and / or horror titles should give a try. Read More.
Sacred Citadel is a competent brawler, but the fun may pass by rather quickly. Read More.
There's no real reason to play this Soul Hackers port when far better titles in the genre have been released since. Read More.
Here's the unfortunate truth about Soul Sacrifice: for all of Sony's positioning of the game as the Vita's "big release" for Spring (and I mean that literally; it's the only Vita game getting a physical release between March 21st and June 21st), it's an extremely niche game. Not only that, while the niche it targets may be huge in Japan -- specifically, people love Monster Hunter-style grinding -- there's not exactly an abundance of evidence suggesting the genre is about to be embraced by North Americans gamers in any significant way.
Oh, and unfortunate truth number two: Soul Sacrifice probably isn't good enough to change any of that. Read More.

Sadly, Sims 3 University Life is lacking in a multitude of ways, showing itself to be a generally disappointing expansion. It not only fails to significantly improve the University experience, but it seems to backslide in a few ways, making the game not quite as fun to play. Read More.
At this point CyberConnect2 just needs to be in charge of all anime-related fighting games. Read More.
Whatever flaws Urban Trial Freestyle may have, I'm more than able to ignore them because of how incredibly fun and addictive it all is. Read More.
Teetering on the edge of being just another generic shooter, Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel delivers in the shooting area but fails to truly distinguish the game from others on the market. Read More.
A decent combat system is present in Croixleur, but a game that's fifteen minutes in length, lacks variety, and has some really long dialogues about bathing is hard to recommend. Read More.
An emphasis on action and a mission-driven structure bring Luigi back to clear away the pesky poltergeists that have taken over Evershade Valley and restore the Dark Moon in the sky in an enjoyable adventure with only a few missteps along the way. Read More.
Guacamelee! accomplishes what it sets out to do remarkably well. It reminded me of the artistry required to make a limited set of 2D tools into memorable experiences, and even the fights I needed help with were a nostalgia trip. Read More.
Yes, the name is really odd, and no, it has nothing to do with heroin, though it is addictive.
