    SG E3 2011: SEGA Games Worth Downloading

    I’m not one to pay much attention to arcade and PSN titles (well, unless they’re somehow related to Batman) since I’m usually focusing my attention on getting my friends to lend me their disc games. However, SEGA presented me with two titles that look like they’re worth the time and money to download. So keep…

    SG E3 2011: Kinect Previews

    It seems like the word “Kinect,” or in general “motion control,” has become a dirty word amongst the “hardcore” gaming community. I personally do not want motion control shoehorned into every game in the future, although that’s something Microsoft has stated may happen with all its first-party titles. However, I also won’t deny that there…

    SG E3 2011: Gotham City Impostors was Actually Fun

    I will admit that I was a little skeptical about Gotham City Impostors when I first heard about it. I believed it was just riding on the coattails of the Batman name to garner attention for another bland first-person shooter. But the girl dressed up as a fake Joker kept urging me over to try…

    SG E3 2011: Vita Bends Gravity & Makes Sweet Music

    While Lono snuck into the conference rooms to get some hands-on experience with the Vita, I was able to go to Sony booth’s VIP (thank you friends in high places) to also see if the Vita was worth the buzz it was receiving. Two games stuck out for me because of its interesting mechanics and…

    Demo Impressions: Enslaved, Odyssey to the West

    Monkeys: beautiful primates who we all love to watch at the zoos as they smell their own feces, and then throw it at each other. There are just not enough of those lovely creatures in video games.  Well thanks to Ninja Theory, they have remedied that balance a bit by bringing us the closest relative…

    MK Blowout II: “It’s bloody delicious,” says this girl gamer

    While my nose recuperates from the smelly extravaganza that is PAX and the sensation in my feet slowly returns, this seems like the perfect time to talk about a game that rips rib cages open and tears hearts out in a glorified gruesome manner. How the former ties into the latter I don’t know, but…
