Giants collided this year when Capcom and Namco announced a joint venture to combine their two major fighting game franchises, Tekken and Street Fighter. Capcom is no stranger to the crossover versus fighter so the first of the Namco/Capcom games (developed by Capcom) promises to be. Read More.
Often, titles in the 'shmup' genre can turn all but the most hardcore players away. Their insistence on pattern memorization, split-second reflexes, tiny hitboxes, and an incredibly unforgiving streak tend to have an adverse effect on someone who simply wants to play a shooty kind of game.

Before we even get into this review let's just get one thing out of the way Before playing this I had never played any ModNation games. This isn't for lack of want though as the game series has a pretty understandable appeal. Wild races where you blast each other with weapons while trying to find the shortcuts that allow you to fight to first place is exactly what made Mario Kart such a hit. Read More.
I've liked tactics games ever since Broderbund's The Ancient Art of War. ...I either really dated myself or scored major geek cred with that admission. I understand that anything with tactics at its core involves slow progress and a lot of failure. I don't need terribly whiz bang graphics or sound, since I got hours of enjoyment from a game from 1984. Read More.
(Editors note: This is not a full review of Mortal Kombat. Since we reviewed the game in full upon its release last spring, this is more of a summary of what is new for this edition of the game. For the full review, please point your browser to http://www.gamingexcellence. Read More.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.
