It has been four years since a proper installment in Namco’s trademark sword fighting game has been released. With a new year, we finally get a new title in the series with an updated roster, improved online and customization options but not much else.

Rocksteady did the impossible when they released Batman: Arkham Asylum – created not only a good licensed superhero game, but a fantastic Batman game. After seeing the announcement for the sequel, I grew skeptical due to it being close to the last one’s release. Could Rocksteady really deliver a second blow with the Dark Knight? Hell. Yes.

Dead Island is a game with some bugs and issues. However, the good found in this game greatly outweigh the bad that is seen firsthand. Dead Island is a fantastic, deep game that will keep your hands on that controller for days – perhaps even weeks – to come. What makes Dead Island so fantastic and unique? Read on to find out.
In brightest day, in blackest night
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil’s might
Beware my power, Green Lantern’s light
I’m sorry, but I just had to. The Green Lantern film was pretty mediocre to say the least, so what can we expect from the game tie-in? Not too much, but it gets the job done.
Remember the good ol’ days? Standing in a long line at your local arcade to be the next player to take on Mortal Kombat? It has been a long time since we’ve seen the klassic Mortal Kombat and with the 2011 reboot, we expect it to go uphill from here. After all these years, a kollection of the three klassic Mortal Kombat games is released. Is it still the same game we know and love, or has it sunk to a new low?
Timegate Studios is back with a sequel to their 2009 FPS, Section 8. Due to the lack of praise for its predecessor, does Section 8: Prejudice deserve a chance.
I immediately became a fan of Capcom’s ‘Versus’ series when I first played Marvel vs Capcom 2 in an arcade cabinet a few years back. Sure, I was a little late to the party, but that isn’t to say that I didn’t understand what an amazing game it was. When it was re-released on the PlayStation Network, I made sure to download it, and enjoyed it even more in crisp HD. When Capcom later announced the long awaited sequel to the game, I couldn’t help but get worked up and excited. I even squeezed in the lines a fan always tends to use with such a beloved franchise – Capcom won’t disappoint their fans. The game was released in February of 2011, and it is now that I decided to pick it up and thoroughly play through it. I didn’t hold back from this game for any weakness – I held off because it disappointed me without even needing to play it. However, to bring a thorough review, I decided to finally pick up and play one of the most disappointing game released this year so far. What exactly is it that upsets me about Marvel vs Capcom 3?
Finding the right words to say how great L.A. Noire is is a difficult task. L.A. Noire developers Team Bondi and publishers Rockstar Games give a pretty clear distinction between L.A. Noire and previous games published by Rockstar – more specifically Grand Theft Auto. While the mini-map, responses from citizens on the street and driving and cover mechanics may have some sort of resemblance to GTA and Red Dead Redemption, Team Bondi’s new game puts you in the role of a gumshoe crimefighter in their emotional detective saga.
When Portal 2 was showcased at last year’s E3, Valve Corp. founder Gabe Newell said it would be the best game the company has ever done? Was he right? You bet your ass he was!
Ed Boon and John Tobias gave arcade players around the world the most violent, bloodiest and goriest games to hit arcade cabinets in 1992 when Midway released the original Mortal Kombat. The franchise originally spawned two sequels before it started to head into a different direction. After that, numerous spin off beat ‘em style titles were released, two live action films were released, and an awkward crossover between the Mortal Kombat universe and DC Universe. After many years of sequels and spin offs, it is only logical that the franchise began to die out. When fans heard Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe was aiming for a ‘T’ rating, they were outraged. However, with Warner Bros. acquiring the rights to Midway, now NetherRealm Studios, a new entry to the franchise has been released. Could the return to a 2.5D plane and the gory roots of the franchise help bring the series back to life, or is the series under its own fatality? Fight!
