Heavy Fire: Shattered Spear [ Review ]
For most people, Heavy Fire: Shattered Spear may look like a Call of Duty clone with a pretty low price of $20, which makes it seem like a bargain at first. What's inside though is not a conventional modern shooter, but a cover-based lightgun shooter that's a lot like the arcade favorite Time Crisis series. However, you'd be playing this game with standard controllers, which already illustrates a big problem. Why play a shooter with standard controllers if you can't move around freely?
Some people still like on-rails shooters, and they can be pretty fun distractions at times. [...More
Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS) [ Review ]
Among the known titles in Nintendo consoles, the Fire Emblem franchise has been one of the lesser known ones. However, the fan following that it has garnered over the years is as loyal as you'd find in those of Mario, Metroid, and Legend of Zelda. Perhaps what made Fire Emblem special is how it treats the games' characters, who are definitely susceptible to death and loss. Once you get someone killed, he/she is dead for the rest of the playthrough. This made for a very emotionally-invested gaming experience.
The story is chopped up into different arcs with several chapters. [...More
Infinity Blade Walkthrough [ Guide ]

Fire Emblem Awakening [ Review ]
"You only live once" has been the popular, albeit irritating catchphrase of the past year. It basically means, in popular lingo, that life is too precious to waste being on the safe side of things. Thus, it is only right to eat, drink, and be merry. On the other hand, YOLO can also work the other way – why live dangerously when every thrill, or even the most basic of actions, can potentially be your last?
The latter interpretation is utilized within Fire Emblem Awakening, the thirteenth installment of the long running tactical RPG series Fire Emblem from Nintendo. [...More
Sword of the Stars II: Enhanced Edition [ Review ]
While there are quite a lot of good titles that come out amidst the mediocre fare that floods the ocean of video games, there are some that slip in which are rather humiliating displays of incompetency and inconsideration. A lot of these games have been written into the annals of legend as the worst among the rest, not to mention that they provide cannon fodder for angry reviewers everywhere. Sword of the Stars II was no different when it first came out, but here it is again with an enhanced edition.
Sword of the Stars II sounded like a cool 4X [...More
Black Knight Sword [ Review ]
Goichi Suda, better known as the Japanese game designer Suda 51, has become known as that guy who comes up with those quirky games that combines action-packed gameplay with weird premises and tons of pop culture references stuffed into them. Black Knight Sword may or may not be the same as the previous Suda51 offerings, depending on which detail you decide to focus on.
Riding on Suda 51's reputation doesn't necessarily make for a good game, although it does make for quite an aesthetic experience. Perhaps what separates Black Knight Sword from his other creations is that it's a sidescrolling action [...More

Looking Back At: Broken Sword [ Editorial ]
Intrepid American George Stobbart, cut away from the tranquil ambiance of a quaint coffee shop in the Paris suburbs, stares longingly around his new-found surroundings. His immediate view is complemented by a restricted burst of sunlight from above the ground, whilst other light sources provide a sufficient amount of visibility to identify the snaking pathway ahead. A small, spherical red object on the ground in the distance provides the only glimmer of colour in an otherwise drab setting. Upon picking up the object, George identifies it as a plastic ball that is intended to be worn. It was the clowns [...More

Infinity Blade II (iOS) [ Review ]
Nothing else in the App Store at the time of writing this review can come close to the visuals of this game, except perhaps the first game. However, this is such an improvement that it's safe to say that it's going to be way better than anything else for a very long time. It's not only in graphics, but also in the interface design in that you can see the controls and other elements better than before. This helps tremendously in gameplay, especially for beginners who are new to this series. As for the environments, they actually shift with your [...More
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword [ Review ]
There is tremendous pressure on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. As the 16th installment in the legendary Zelda series, it must carry the burden of continuing the saga’s excitement and reputation, as well as breathe life into the struggling Wii console. Nintendo EAD decided to address this dilemma by taking a gamble with the Wii MotionPlus peripheral for sword-fighting. This comes with the redesigned Wii Remote pointing system, which is utilized for targeting. Through these enhancements, the franchise wants to prove to the gaming community that it can continue to evolve with the changing time.
There are those who are [...More
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - What to Expect
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is an upcoming title to be exclusively on the Nintendo Wii. Developer Nintendo EAD and the parent publisher, Nintendo wanted to bring a more epic game in the Zelda franchise to their less-than-hardcore Nintendo Wii system. We pondered that philosophy and have come up with what to expect for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
The first thing that we should note would be the controls. We can put a good bet that the controls in Skyward Sword will, to some extent, emulate that of the controls in the Wii version of The Legend of [...More

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP (iOS) [ Review ]
It is said that games in the iOS are mostly for killing time and that they hold onto your attention for a limited period of time before you have to do something else. The price of these games range from a mere 99 cents to a few dollars. While you may like them, you can then forget about them as you go about your days with your iPhone or iPad. This may not be entirely true with Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP.
An ambitious game right from the start, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP combines a nostalgic sprite-based visuals style with [...More

Action adventure titles nowadays tend to fall flat on their target audience if they lack a good, deep storyline to use as a foundation for the events that occur in-game, but Ninja Blade defies this as it proves a whole lot of fun, despite lacking any real depth at all.
That's not to say there is no storyline at all, it's just that in Ninja Blade the story behind your ultimate aims proves utterly irrelevant as you are encouraged from the very beginning to just enjoy yourself, which is very easy to do playing as a care-free ninja weiling three deadly [...More
Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars

If you have played Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars previously on another platform, such as the Playstation, Gameboy Advance or Mobile then you will not necessarily have experienced everything that you will find in the Wii and DS installment [...More
