- PS Vita

Platform: Vita Genre: Arcade shooter tl;dr - Do you like psychedelic visuals with a thumping soundtrack? If you have speakers or headphones, I'd like to issue a challenge. Load up the video below(it's a link to one of the songs from the game) and then come back to the review and keep reading while you listen to the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5N6NKo5U0eU If you're not pum...

Olliolli

- PS Vita

Platform: PS Vita (Digital Download) Price: $13 ($10 with PS+) Gameplay: skateboarding, autoscrolling, combos I was never a skateboarder as a kid. Okay, I owned a skateboard. I could ollie. That's about it. But I really did love to play games about skateboarding. Even if it seemed a bit unrealistic to be grinding on a helicopter blade, it was fun to see those points rack up, kinda like an...

The Banner Saga

- PC

Full disclosure: I backed The Banner Saga through Kickstarter over two years ago for a mere (iirc) $10. I figured "why not?". This was just after the release of Faster than Light (FTL) and during the same time as the KS campaigns for Wasteland 2 and Shadowrun Returns, during those early days when Double Fine Adventure had just set a record for highest-funding on Kickstarter and everyone scrambl...

Starbound

- PC

As a long-time fan of Terraria and other similar world-chiselling games, I was very excited to try out Starbound. The sci-fi theme looked neat and I appreciated how the combat looked more engaging and action-packed. The Starbound "early access" has been available on Steam for less than a month, and in less than a month's time I have seen more monsters, met more NPCs, visited more biomes, and cr...

Shadowrun Returns

- PC

The quick bits: Available - on PC and iDevices (reviewing PC version) Price - $19.99 Game length - 14.5 hours so far tl;dr - cyberpunk meets high fantasy with more options in combat than the recent XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Shadowrun Returns (SRR) is one the first in a batch of franchise revivals on Kickstarter. Over the past few years we've seen a lot of old-school franchises brought back,...

The Last Of Us

- PS3

Similar to my Soul Sacrifice review, I am going to go into as much depth as possible for prospective buyers of The Last of Us. I will keep the entire review as spoiler-free as possible, and I will warn you in advance if I say something that may be viewed as a minor spoiler. This is going to be a LONG review (that's what in-depth means, right?) so buckle in and let's get started. QUICK BITS:...

Soul Sacrifice

- PS Vita

WARNING: you're in for a long review. The quick bits: Available on PS Vita through retail or PSN download My total playtime: 6 or so hours in the Japanese demo, 19 in the US demo, 16 hours (so far) in the retail release Worth it? Yep. TL;DR: a boss-hunting game with punishing difficulty, a huge number of spells and customization options, tons of cool bosses, interesting lore, and online...

Soul Sacrifice

- PS Vita

When I have to pry my own fingers away from the Vita in order to review a game, that can't be a bad sign, right? Soul Sacrifice is a much-needed game for the Vita for numerous reasons. For starters, it isn't a port, a cross-buy, or a remake. It's a brand-new IP from Keiji Inafune of Dead Rising and Mega Man fame. Sony's previous handheld thrived in no small part due to a little game called M...

Don't Starve

- PC

The official Don't Starve website (found here: http://www.dontstarvegame.com/ ) calls the game "An Uncompromising Wilderness Survival Game Full of Science & Magic!" I call it a game where you die a lot, and I love it. The premise of the game is as simple as it gets: do not starve. Cast onto a seemingly deserted island, you must gather your wits about you, prepare to face each coming ni...

Fire Emblem: Awakening

- 3DS

The quick bits: Fire Emblem: Awakening Available on 3DS via download or retail Total playtime: 39 hours (so far) Worth it? Hell yeah. Pro-tip: buy a retail copy while it's still available I'm a bit late to the party, folks. The die-hard Fire Emblem fans have already bought this game and beaten it a dozen times, whereas everyone else has already written Fire Emblem: Awakening off as...we...

Minecraft

- PC

I first started playing Minecraft several years ago. I heard about the game on a blogger's website, and I thought I'd give it a try. At the time, Markus "Notch" Persson was selling the unfinished game for $10 with the promise that any future updates would be free to those who decided to support the game in its beta form. A few weeks after buying it, I read an article announcing the game passed...

BioShock: Infinite

- PC

Quick notes: - review is based on PC version, although I also tried my hand at the PS3 version via the PSN 1-hour trial - game time clocked in at just over 14 hours. I played on Hard difficulty - I've played Bioshock 1, 2, System Shock 1 and 2, and other similar games in the genre, most of which are on PC - there are SPOILERS in this review, but I'll warn you beforehand. Within just a...

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus

- PS Vita

I'm always up for a good hack 'n slash game. The Ninja Gaiden series, in my opinion, has always been up there with the likes of God of War and Devil May Cry, but if there's one thing that TECMO is known for, it would be ports. They LOVE to port their games. The latest Ryu Hayabusa adventure on the Vita is not just a port, but it's a port of a port! NG2 first debuted on the 360, then it was re-r...

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention

- PS Vita

TL;DR stats: Game type - Strategy RPG/Puzzle Number of hours to beat - 25 to 40 Number of hours to 100% complete - 100 to infinity Platform - PS Vita Let's get something out of the way, first: How many hours did I put into Disgaea 3 before writing this review? Well, last time I checked my Netherworld Stats, the game says I've put 117 hours into the game. Goodness, how the time flies!...

King of Fighters XIII

- PS3

Many people will point to the advent of Street Fighter IV on the HD consoles as the starting point for the reemergence of the fighting game genre. Let's face it: after Street Fighter II's million iterations and the first few Mortal Kombat games, sidescrolling fighters have been declining in popularity (the unique niche that Smash Bros fills notwithstanding). Sure, we've had excellent fighters c...
