The Sims 3: University Life [ Review ]
Much like prequels have been prevalent in movies today, so to have video games tried to fill in the blank periods between their games. And whose better history to see, much more play as, than characters that we ourselves have created? That is exactly what The Sims 3: University Life aims to offer us as it fills the void between teenage years to full adulthood.
The Sims 3: University Life is the new expansion pack from the Sims 3, and it covers your character’s years during college from acceptance until your eventual graduation. It can also integrate with other expansion packs [...More
Star Wars Pinball [ Review ]
Star Wars and pinball may seem like an odd combination, but it certainly works with Zen Pinball’s Star Wars DLC. Parlor games have evolved so much in the past years, and Zen Studios was able to properly integrate the enthralling special effects and amazing fight scenes within the George Lucas and Steven Spielberg classic series of films. The Star Wars dual trilogy has impacted two whole generations of viewers, and while these films have influenced video games of many varying genres, it would probably be the first time that the Force is displayed so vehemently in a pinball game.
With Star [...More

Miner Wars 2081 [ Review ]
The good thing about indie games is that they come in all shapes and sizes, something that is limited in triple A mainstream releases. For instance, something like Miner Wars 2081 used to be a major title during the 90's, like MechWarrior, Freelancer, and so on, but are no longer as hot as before due to other more popular titles. Nonetheless, it doesn't mean that there's no market for such games, and Miner Wars 2081 comes out to an audience that misses mech combat.
This game runs in VRAGE, a voxel engine that was made specifically for this game. [...More

Smurf Life Walkthrough [ Guide ]
The Smurfs have been around for quite some time, and children from a generation ago can fondly recall seeing these blue-skinned elves at one time or another on television during their early years. Such is their impression that they are still around even in modern times, and in fact have spawned their own video games, with the most recent one being Smurf Life from Beeline Interactive. Get to control your very own Smurf as you help lift Gargamel’s curse upon your land so that you and your fellow Smurfs can live happy and free once again.
Gargamel has put a curse [...More
Guild Wars 2 - Leveling Up Walkthrough [ Guide ]
Guild Wars 2 is the follow up to ArenaNet’s Guild Wars, which was released for Microsoft Windows way back in April 2005. Aside from the usual graphic and performance enhancements, as well as added features within the game, Guild Wars 2 also employs a dynamic level adjustment system where characters are scaled up or down depending on the situation. This feature, which is also applicable during PvP modes, makes the game more fair especially with regards to lower level players, and it also makes for a more challenging affair as all content can be considered as “end game” content, regardless [...More
Guild Wars 2 [ Review ]
An impressive open world, deep combat system, robust crafting, vigorous customization and amazing visuals are the aspects which make Guild Wars 2 an astounding MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online); a true successor to the 2005’s hit Guild Wars. ArenaNet-the developer behind the stellar game has done an admirable job in truly evolving not just the franchise but the RPGMMO (Roleplaying Game Massive Multiplayer Online) genre as well. The game is an engaging, addictive and truly rewarding experience. Just read on to know how I became a fan of the game.
One of the most immediate things a gamer notices about a game, [...More
Masters of Mystery: Crime of Fashion (iOS) [ Review ]
The thing about hidden object games is that while it's not fast paced gameplay that is usually desired by the younger generation of gamers, it still has a pulling power in the right places, like mobile platforms. As far as hidden object games for the iOS go, Masters of Mystery: Crime of Fashion from G5 Entertainment has got to be one of the best in recent memory.
Not just a plain hidden object game, it's also an adventure game that puts you in the shoes of Carrie Chase, a detective investigating the murder of a fashion designer in New York. [...More
Tower Wars [ Review ]
Tower defense is one of those genres that do have potential in being marketable to casual audiences, but still needs that one title to take it to the next level. Perhaps the best title it has had so far is Plants vs Zombies, but a multiplayer game is still needed to make tower defense a recognizable genre. That's where Tower Wars comes in, a game with multiplayer in mind.
The genre is still quite popular, with countless variations on the same concept of defending against waves of attackers and staying alive. However, what it does lack is the offensive factor, in [...More
Gamescom 2012: Complete Recap (Star Wars 1313 and 007 Legends!)
The bulk of Gamescom 2012 is now over, but don't forget that there was plenty of information that came from the show floor that wasn't just from the four press conferences.

Come check out the latest information on all of those games, including the completely redesigned Black Ops II multiplayer, and the new online infrastructure coming for Resident Evil 6.

Gemini Wars [ Review ]
The frontier of space seems to have become a desired setting for games once again with games like Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion coming out of the woodwork. From the independent developer Camel101, here is Gemini Wars, a game to add into the space mix.
As their first major release, Camel101 has just crossed the threshold from social games to full-on releases. For a debut effort, Gemini Wars features a lot of things that perhaps other indie developers would wish that they have done. It's already risky enough for them to swim into the ocean of the gaming market, but [...More
Guild Wars 2 - What to Expect [ Editorial ]
Guild Wars 2 is ArenaNet's newest upcoming MMORPG and the sequel to the original Guild Wars. It will be exclusive to the PC (MMOs are not typically on consoles anyway) and will feature what is possibly ArenaNet's greatest game creation yet. I truly have never seen a deeper, more engaging MMORPG than Guild Wars 2. In my honest opinion as a CheatMasters editor, this game beats the hell out of World of Warcraft (a popular MMORPG developed by Blizzard Entertainment).
There are many changes in Guild Wars 2 over the original, but the first to notice is the graphics and animations. [...More

Kinect Star Wars [ Review ]
Fans of the Star Wars Universe have anticipated the release of the Kinect Star Wars since its announcement at the Electronic Entertainment Expo last June 2011. Some anticipated it with less enthusiasm than others, however. Games featuring one of the most iconic characters in pop culture history have not been lacking in the previous years, so many were expecting great things from this game. Upon its release, however, there seems to be something lacking with Kinect Star Wars, and it is something that hardcore Star Wars fans did not seem to fully expect, and, ironically, it may be something that [...More

Red Faction: Armageddon | What Is Best In Life Achievment [ Guide ]
The objective is to conduct melee finishers on twenty-five creepers. This achievement can be unlocked on single player mode only.
Step by Step
You will be taught below on how to perform such task so read it well:
1. I recommend that you wait in front of the spawning are of the creepers until you finish this mission.
2. Creepers are the smallest of enemies in the game and they attack mostly from close range. So, once one of them approaches you, then just hit and Darius will stomp it in the face for an instant-kill.
Note: There will be a bar in the top [...More
E3 Kinect Star Wars Floor Demo
One of the more interesting titles at E3 was Kinect Star Wars. I remember when I kept seeing that title I thought it was a work in progress. On paper the idea sounds awesome but will it translate well? Will the "Force Flail" become a hit with the hardcore gamer that the Kinect desperately needs to hook? I'm not sure all I know is in the demo later on you are fighting in Naboo, you go through a door and you are in the carbonite freezing chamber, ugh.
Anyway check it out for yourself and remember [...More
