DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

- PS Vita

Danganronpa is a game you’re either immediately onboard with, or don’t wanna touch with a ten-foot pole. I’m here to encourage you to hop onboard or at least shorten that pole, especially since the Vita’s still a bit starved for good games and this is one of its better exclusives. Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Climax is the Vita remake of the Japan-only PSP original, simply titled Danganronpa,...

Strike Suit Zero

- PC

How are there so few space sims anymore? It seems like the easiest and most awesome kind of game to make. You just make a pretty skybox (spacebox?) Make a ship for the player, make a similar ship with AI controlling it that you copy-paste a whole bunch and bam! You got a game. Well, this is the too-empty-for-too-long niche that Strike Suit Zero tries to fill, and it throws in a kickass anime...

The Cat Lady

- PC

There are few things more satisfying than finding a sleeper hit before it’s taken off. I would be a hipster and brag that I liked this game before it was cool, but being hipster is too mainstream. (Let that sink in for a second.) But it is the kind of awesome, little game that I need to tell all the cool people I know about it. And YOU became cool when you started reading my writing. Congratul...

Tomb Raider

- Xbox 360

We've entered an age of reboots, my friends. Some faithful to a fault, like Mortal Kombat, which was brilliant save for the hilariously unfair boss fights it held onto; others radically different like DmC, which, for the record, I thought was *INSERT OPINION THAT AGREES WITH YOURS* The new Tomb Raider, even though I've only played a handful of the series' later titles, makes me extremely happy....

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

- PS3

Let's get one thing straight: Metal Gear is a silly, silly franchise. That's not to say the story isn't good, it has fantastic characters, and a complex but (usually) intelligent and thoughtful plot. However, it is a world where cardboard boxes can outsmart trained soldiers, headbands can provide infinite ammo, people can live on through their arms (I know that's not really what happened but th...

Dragon's Dogma

- Xbox 360

Quick! What's the best RPG about killing dragons? Time's up! You're wrong! It's Dragon's Dogma! Here's why! While I'm usually the last person to complain about "casualization," (Dark Souls 2 will be fine, guys, quit freaking out) I admit it's a bit hard to feel like a badass adventurer in recent RPGs when all the fights are scaled to your level, your health regenerates and you just fast t...

Silent Hill: Downpour

- PS3

I saw an advertisement. The title in the logo said "Silent Hill," my favorite horror game's name. It's ridiculous, couldn't possibly be true... that's what I keep telling myself. A dead series can't put out a sequel. Silent Hill died with that damned Homecoming game four years ago. So then... why am I renting this? Could Silent Hill really be in this game... waiting for me? (okay, if you did...

The Walking Dead: Episode 3 "Long Road Ahead"

- PC

I gotta admit, I was a BIT nervous about this one. The Walking Dead game got its teeth into me during the Steam Summer Sale. The first episode blew me away, both as a great zombie story and as an adventure game that understands why people don't play adventure games as much as they used to. It was exciting and kept a good pace, while still requiring a good bit of brainwork on the part of the pla...

Trauma Team

- Wii

The Wii is the undeniable KING of console shovelware. It's like the App Store, but everything is ten times more expensive and the controls are ten times as bad. The quickest way to spot crap? The price tag. If it didn't release for $50, it was crapped out in two weeks by about a ten-person developing team, right? Well, here's an exception to that rule that released at $40. Nobody's really su...

Catherine

- PS3

Sometimes box art can give you the wrong idea of a game. ICO is not a kiddie fantasy adventure, Deadly Premonition is not a Saw rip-off, Trauma Center New Blood is not about the health meter from Team Fortress 2, and Catherine is definitely not a shameless japanese dating/porn simulator that somehow made its way stateside. In fact, the subject matter is discussed very tastefully, and you could...

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock

- PS3

Have you seen those miracle whip commercials? The ones where they try to sell whipped cream as "edgy" and "indie" to the Juno/ Scott Pilgrim crowd? Where appealing to youth/subculture just makes a major company look hilariously out of touch? I mention this because seeing those commercials gives me pretty much the same feeling that the hopefully final effort of the Guitar Hero series does. I sa...

Lux-Pain

- Nintendo DS

Visual novels are an odd genre. They seem counter-intuitive to the point of video games in general. But even if it's not completely interactive, it can still be entertaining with a good story, right? I think so. Lux-Pain, however, gets way too much wrong to be of any value. Lux-pain has an awesome concept. A series of strange murders strike a small japanese town, and your oddly grey-haired 1...

Darksiders: Wrath of War

- Xbox 360

When a game is divisive among gamers, like GTA IV and most recently Other M, I tend to look be in the group that likes the game more. But not this game. I don't find it to be especially bad, just mediocre. And it's the absolute worst kind of mediocre, the kind where absolutely NOTHING stands out to me. I've liked "average" games before, but usually something keeps me playing. Dante's Inferno...

Mass Effect 2

- Xbox 360

I usually try review more recent games, but with hype building for the PS3 release, I thought I'd share my thoughts. The game starts out a short time after the end of the first game. After the battle of the Citadel, Commander Shepard and the Normandy are on a mission to eliminate the Geth, the race that threatened to destroy galactic civilization with the help of the Reapers. Without warning...

Batman: Arkham Asylum

- PS3

Well, put me in a tacky purple suit and call me Jack Nicholson! Arkham Asylum's actually pretty awesome! Hate me forever but there was a time earlier this year I was convinced it would suck. Turns out it's a wonderful combination of stealth, brawling and puzzle-solving that must be played. The game starts with Batman speeding through the streets of Gotham with Joker tied up in the back sea...

MadWorld

- Wii

Having barely touched my Wii since I got my PS3 (once you go black, you can't go back) I had a bit of Wii-mote dusting to do and batteries to scavenge for. I probably wouldn't have cared so much about their condition had I realized within three minutes of turning on MadWorld, blood comes in a tidal wave off of the screen. The game itself is probably the only besides manhunt 2 the public di...

Eat Lead: The Return Of Matt Hazard

- PS3

Between the current gaming market and the poor economy (here in the U.S. anyway) it's a really bad sign when a console game's MSRP is only $50.00. So, with lowered expectations, I dove into this parody of action games. Though in the end, it did succeed at making me laugh, it fails to give an enjoyable or even mediocre gameplay to see all the jokes. The games a third-person shooter starring...
