Yesterday Review (PC)

By Naomi Brown () - 7.5 out of 10

Yesterday is the newest point and click adventure from Pendulo Studios, creators of the Runaway series. Advertised as a departure from their more humorous game style, Yesterday features a dark and macabre story as its backdrop. You play John Yesterday, Henry White and Samuel Cooper, all characters with a part to play in this bizarre and twisted story of the occult. Read More.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Review (Vita)

By Daniel Acaba () - 8.0 out of 10

Capcom's love of releasing games on every platform in existence has been paying off for them lately. Resident Evil 4 has surfaced on most every console to exist since it first appeared on the GameCube. But every iteration of it has been better than the last, especially the Wii and PS Move versions thanks to the controls. Read More.

Michael Jackson: The Experience Review (Vita)

By Daniel Acaba () - 6.5 out of 10

Honestly what needs to be said about a game like this to convince you whether or not to buy it? It's an old school dancing game based on the King of Pop. You've likely either picked it up when you got the Vita or you aren't interested in it at all. But for those of you on the fence or waiting on a price drop I guess we can come up with something for you. Read More.

Asphalt Injection Review (Vita)

By Daniel Acaba () - 5.0 out of 10

When the Asphalt series debuted in 2004 I was actually something of a fan. I originally played the N-Gage version which was acceptable but honestly the Nintendo DS version is where the game really shined. The graphics were nice for a launch title and the wireless multiplayer worked rather well. Read More.

Dungeon Hunter: Alliance Review (Vita)

By Daniel Acaba () - 7.0 out of 10

There seems to be a misconception going around at the moment with some game reviewers – Dungeon Hunter: Alliance is in no way a port of the game available on Apple devices. There is a Dungeon Hunter game for iOS devices and smartphones that has the same plot but to call this game a port is severely misleading. Read More.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Review (X360)

By Daniel Acaba () - 8.0 out of 10

Let's be honest here – Capcom loves the idea of rereleasing games constantly. Back in ye olden days they just couldn't stop releasing Street Fighter II over and over again until there were five versions for the arcade, not counting home releases / rereleases. Read More.

Asura's Wrath Review (PS3)

By Nicholas Bale () - 6.0 out of 10

So here's what happens when gods fight: it's not a matter of destroying buildings, or even just fighting super strong monsters. When gods fight, it's a matter of kilometres, of mountain-sized mayhem and destruction on a near-global scale. Explosions that decimate continents and swords that stretch into the atmosphere. Read More.

Mass Effect 3 Review (X360)

By Daniel Acaba () - 8.5 out of 10

It's a rare game that can get me as excited as a Mass Effect release. There's just something about the space opera setting, persistent main character and tight third-person shooter gameplay that really gets me chomping at the bit. The series has had its ups and downs, with the toning down of the RPG elements being a sore point for some but the advances in gameplay making it worth the loss to others. Read More.

Disneyland Adventures Review (X360)

By Lindsay Steele () - 8.5 out of 10

I'm going to start right off the bat here and say that I am a HUGE Disneyphile. I own pretty much every animated Disney movie that you can think of, have paid to see both The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast in their 3D theatrical re-releases, and have amassed what could be the country's largest collection of Stitch stuffed animals. Read More.

Age of Empires Online Review (PC)

By Daniel Acaba () - 7.5 out of 10

Speaking personally I don't believe that there is a better real-time strategy series than the Age of... games. Age of Empires II is one of my favorite RTS's of all time and Age of Mythology is a pretty close second. Honestly it's one of the few game series out there that doesn't have even a single game in the series that I hate although I'm not the greatest fan of a few of the expansions. Read More.

Rayman Origins Review (Vita)

By Daniel Acaba () - 8.5 out of 10

Rayman Origins was like a breath of fresh air when it was released onto the consoles last year. In many ways it copied the successful idea behind New Super Mario Bros. Wii by allowing four friends to team up to complete the levels in a chaotic mass of gathering items, defeating enemies and platforming. Read More.

I Am Alive Review (X360)

By Andrew Sztein () - 9.0 out of 10

Gamers may say that they want originality and unique gaming experiences, but I beg to differ. Most people want the same crap they've been playing over and over and over again. If you need any proof, just look at the sales numbers behind Call of Duty, Battlefield, Halo, or any of the latest sequels to hit your local games shop. Read More.

Rochard Review (PS3)

By Nicholas Bale () - 7.5 out of 10

Rochard isn't your typical hero. He's your typical blue-collar worker, your typical guy with a gut, and your typical space-miner, but hero? Not really. But sometimes a guy creeping into his 40s just has to pull up his pants over his considerable waist, pick up a gravity gun, and save the day. Read More.

Shank 2 Review (X360)

By Naomi Brown () - 7.0 out of 10

Shank 2 is a side scrolling 2D game from Klei Entertainment. Being a sequel, players would normally expect some sort of knowledge of the first to be necessary, but not so here. This game is a straight beat-em-up that requires little to no attention paid to the basic storyline. Read More.

Dear Esther Review (PC)

By Christopher Seal () - 7.5 out of 10

Atmospheric, visually stunning, and incredibly immersive. These few words are enough to describe Dear Esther. What remains to be answered though, and what many will argue about is whether or not Dear Esther, in fact, constitutes a game. Read More.
