Breaking the Tedium

No more Recycled Games While Google play and iTunes are constantly uploaded with new games, you may notice a growing trend that’s plaguing the market. Games in the same format are being recycled constantly. If you look at popular games like Temple run and the slew of jewel games, they all follow the same format…

God Of War: Redemption???

A picture has surfaced of what looks like the logo for a new God of War game. The game, titled God of War: Redemption, appears to be in development for both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita. It has been speculated over whether or not this image is legitimate because very little information can…

Gucamelee Review

Guacamelee is “Juan” heck of a game. Drinkbox has done it again, and brought another great PSN game on to the PlayStation consoles. Guacamelee! captures the humor, art, and musical style that all of their previous games have brought. The game also has wonderful platforming elements, a great combat system, and a really good story.…

Machinarium PS Vita Review

Machinarium is a fun puzzle game, but it’s not without its problems. The art style is great, and the gameplay is good, but it’s a little bit hard. It’s not a good kind of hard; it’s hard in a cryptic way. The story really isn’t enough to keep you going either. Even though it is…

Switch Galaxy Review

Switch Galaxy is a game by former Liverpool Studios developers, and you can tell in every aspect. Switch Galaxy captures the same sense of speed and beauty that Wipeout always shined in. The music is great, along with the designs of everything from the vehicles, down to the tracks and barriers. Even the price is…

Nun Attack Review

Nun Attack is one crazy game. In short, you take a group of nuns who happen to have shotguns and assault rifles to different graveyards to try to take down Mortana, the Fallen Nun. You go through 40 levels, spanning across four worlds. These levels have players running through them, destroying portals, and killing enemies…

XCOM: Enemy Unknown coming to iOS this Summer

2K Games announced at its PAX panel today that the “full XCOM experience” will be coming to iPhone and iPad this summer. 2K also put up a video on YouTube showing off the gameplay and how it works on iOS. 2K also states that they have optimized the touch controls for the game, and haven’t…

Jak and Daxter HD Collection rated for PS Vita by ESRB

The Jak and Daxter Collection has been rated again by the ESRB, but this time for the Playstation Vita. This means the game was re-certified and will probably come pretty soon to Sony’s handheld. The game would be the first of the Sony collections to come to the Vita. If there is a formal announcement,…

Ridiculous Fishing Review

When I think about endless runners on the App Store, I picture games in which I travel in one direction, avoiding obstacles and possibly picking up currency until I eventually meet my demise, and start over. That gameplay loop has always been enough for me. But Ridiculous Fishing is much more than an endless runner.…

Zen Pinball 2: Star Wars Tables DLC Review

I love pinball and I love Star Wars. So, you can imagine how excited I was when Zen Studios announced they were making Star Wars Tables. Their first pack was released recently, having three tables: Boba Fett, Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars the Clone Wars. Some tables I like more than…

Germinator Review

Germinator is a cross-buy enabled puzzle game for PSN developed by Creat Studios. Their previous games were known for being fun little diversions from “heavier” games, and Germinator is no exception. Germinator is a simple puzzle game that follows the tried and true formula of pick-up-and-play accessibility. Above all else however, the game is quite…

Life of Pixel Review

Short, annoying, and terribly designed, Life of Pixel is a game that should be avoided. That is the best way I can describe this game. It has only 64 levels, all which can be beaten easily in under a minute by most people. The enemy patterns are all the same, the graphics and sound are…

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken Review (Vita)

Rocketbirds is a cinematic puzzle platformer, that is definitely fun, but has plenty flaws too. Puzzles get repetitive, the story is pretty bad and often doesn’t make sense, the combat can be very frustrating, and the game is pretty short. Platforming is fun, and is the heart of the game, but the other aspects are…

So What Happened At Last Night’s Vita Conference?

Sony held a conference early this morning on what was to come for the Playstation Vita. It was filmed in a Nintendo Direct style, with someone talking in front of the camera, then rolling game footage, or having an interview. However, it wasn’t really meant for a US audience. Even though it was prerecorded, and…

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Review

Sly Cooper Thieves in Time does not have the same developer or graphics, but it is still Sly, and that’s a really good thing. Sly Cooper Thieves in Time is a stealthy platforming game with tons of content, a good story, and humor that doesn’t get old. Sanzaru’s love for the franchise really shines through,…

Super Crate Box Review

Super Crate Box was and forever will be an excellent mobile game. The extremely short rounds make the game easy to play in short spurts, exactly what most people want in a mobile game. There was only one thing missing though: actual button and analog controls. That’s what the Playstation Mobile Vita version of this…

escapeVektor Review

EscapeVektor by itself is an excellent puzzle game. But the developers at Nnooo wanted to add a story, something to push you onward, and passed with flying colors. The story isn’t just to break up the levels, the story actually means something. The puzzles, and the way you pass them, are excellent too. There is…

Big Sky Infinity Review

Fast-paced “Bullet-Hell” shooters rarely provide incentive to keep playing after you’ve claimed the top of your respective friend’s leaderboard. The fundamental design of them suggests that you’re going to die, and you’re going to die a lot, but the only way to improve is to learn enemy patterns and try to make it further the…
