Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time – Game Review

The theme song is already in your head, isn’t it? It got lodged there for me as soon as I found out that we were getting a new Samurai Jack game. Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is the latest from Soleil Ltd., published by Adult Swim Games. They previously made Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Strikers.… Continue reading Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time – Game Review

Vintage Gaming – Super Dodge Ball

Super Dodge Ball might just be the ideal game from the 8-bit era that you didn’t play.  It’s exactly what the title says, your team (USA in our NES version) battles dodge ball teams from around the globe in a tournament.  Each team (from places like Iceland, Kenya and China) had different strengths and weaknesses,… Continue reading Vintage Gaming – Super Dodge Ball

Game Review – Monaco

The devs were nice enough to let me take Monaco for a spin early, and here are my thoughts.  If you aren’t familiar with the game, here’s a brief rundown: Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine is a single player or co-op heist game. Assemble a crack team of thieves, case the joint, and pull off… Continue reading Game Review – Monaco

Game Review – Dishonored

I’ve been playing Dishonored off and on for a while now, and it’s got a lot going for it.  The world is a sort of Steampunk+Magic mix that’s right in my wheelhouse.  I’m fairly in practice with stealthy fighting techniques thanks to making it most of the way through Splinter Cell: Conviction, and Dishonored has… Continue reading Game Review – Dishonored

Dragon Age III: Inquisition Is Announced

Bioware announced the title for the upcoming Dragon Age game, and it’s Dragon Age III: Inquisition.  Further press releases and statements place the game as a late 2013 release, which seems like a long time when they’ve already been working on the game for two years…but we remember the things we didn’t like about Dragon… Continue reading Dragon Age III: Inquisition Is Announced

Dragon Age 3 Speculation, Part 3

Part 1 – Part 2 Part 3 of my look at what might come to pass for Dragon Age 3 is a look at what characters may return.  Both Awakening and DA2 had some appearances and references to previous characters, in fact they were thick on the ground for me at one point in DA2,… Continue reading Dragon Age 3 Speculation, Part 3

Continuing Game Review: Dragon Age 2

Note:  Continuing means I will revisit this as I get farther in. Of course I couldn’t avoid Dragon Age 2 for very long, considering how much I loved Dragon Age: Originsand all the related DLC/expansion content.  So here I am, almost through with Kirkwall (pre-Deep Roads expedition), and enjoying it quite a bit.  I’ll put the… Continue reading Continuing Game Review: Dragon Age 2

Dragon Age 3 Speculation, Part 2

Part 1 of this series looked at the story of Dragon Age 3, and what potential plot hooks are available for the next game in the series.  Part 2, here, will deal with other aspects of the new game, such as technical or gameplay changes. Combat changed in feel quite a bit between the two… Continue reading Dragon Age 3 Speculation, Part 2

Kinect Star Wars Suggestions

Kinect Star Wars was just released for the XBox360, and has drawn quite a bit of attention.  Not all of it was good, as there was quite a bit of negative buzz yesterday for the Han Solo ‘dance party’ song “I’m Han Solo”.  Complete with dancing Han rising up out of the carbonite chamber.  A… Continue reading Kinect Star Wars Suggestions

Dragon Age 3 Speculation, Part 1

So Dragon Age 3 is happening, while future content for DA2 is shelved.  Bioware is looking for feedback on the future of the Dragon Age franchise, and the first thing I thought of is, where can the story go?  There are a ton of plot hooks out there, and any number of them could make… Continue reading Dragon Age 3 Speculation, Part 1

Vintage Gaming – Oni

Beat ’em up games have a long history, whether in the arcade or on your various console systems.  From Renegade to Double Dragon to River City Ransom, this style of game was a fun diversion from my RPG and Sim game-filled life at the time.  You might consider Oni a logical extension from those games.  Made… Continue reading Vintage Gaming – Oni
