Kontrol Freak: FPSFreak Phantom and FPSFreak CQC Signature – Joystick Add-On Review

I’ve always been a stickler for controller comfort with my small Asian hands, so larger controllers and taller sticks have always been an issue for me (Shakes fist at the original Xbox Duke). When I got KontrolFreak’s Phantom and CQC products in, I was a little cautious as to how well they would work. Long story short, I came away mostly positive.

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare Review

The Xbox One doesn’t have many titles to it’s name, but it is growing. Think of Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare as a pretty dandelion. It’s just another plant poking it’s head out of the ground; a weed among flowers. To a young mind though, a dandelion is pretty flower; one worthy to give your love. Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare can be thought of as just another team based shooter on a console that has a history of hosting shooters. Plants vs Zombies stands out with it’s bright colorful aesthetic and cartoon-y design among all the greys and browns of other shooters, plus it’s fun to play, so there’s that.

Jazzpunk Review

Doing comedy in video games is hard, it’s not seen too often. Focusing a game squarely around comedy, thats incredibly hard and almost unheard of. After playing through Jazzpunk, from Necrophone Games, I can safely say that it can be done. Jazzpunk is hilarious and dare I say, one of the funniest games I’ve played in quite a while.

Slender: The Arrival Review

The Slender Man tale is fairly well known at this point with its explosion of fans on the Internet. First came the story in 2009 by a member of the Something Awful forums, then eventually came the videogame adaptation with “Slender: The Eight Pages”. When it was released, it was a free PC game created by Indie developer Parsec Productions, the premise was simple, find eight notes hidden around a large forest in pitch black with nothing but a flashlight. The more pages you aquired, the more likely the sharp dressed faceless Slender Man would show. Stare at him long enough or if he gets too close and it is game over.

Rush Bros Review

Rush Bros is a music infused Platform Racing Game that blends music with challenging 2d platforming. When I say challenging, think of something along the lines of Super Meat Boy; still with me? Good. The concept isn’t much different than other players in this genre, make your way to the end of the level in the fastest time possible with the least amount of deaths. The game features a brief story that sets the whole tone for the game. Bass and Treble, two big time music DJs, split their successful duo to become independent artists. Both DJs become successful in their own right and of course if there are two of something, we all have to know which is better. So to determine the better DJ, they take the obvious route and decide to race against one another. …continue reading » Rush Bros Review

Sacred Citadel Review

Coming into Sacred Citadel, I was unaware that it was actually a spin off of the popular Sacred series. Luckily for me, and those who love a good beat’em up, you don’t have to be familiar with the lore of Sacred Citadel to enjoy this game. It’s a fun RPG progression based beat’em up similar to another modern beat’em up, Castle Crashers. The game is gorgeous, it has a cartoony style with bright colors, and everyone has big exaggerated movements. The art stands out and looking at the different scenery is almost as enjoyable as the game is itself. …continue reading » Sacred Citadel Review

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Review

It’s been three years since Blizzard’s highly anticipated release of StarCraft II and Raynor & company are back in this Zerg infested installment. For those real time strategy (RTS) fans who’ve been living under a rock, Heart of the Swarm is the second of two planned expansion packs for 2010′s StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. Each expansion focusing on the other two of the game’s playable factions. Heart of the Swarm focuses on the Zerg race and their human-zerg hybrid leader Sarah Kerrigan; the plot moves forward right were StarCraft II left off. Lucky for players, Blizzard put just as much heart and soul into this expansion as they did with Wings of Liberty. While the game itself hasn’t changed much, there are enough refinements and new units added to improve the overall experience for StarCraft II. …continue reading » StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Review

Super Black Bass 3D Review

Out of few of us here who review games, I was probably the most qualified to put some time into Super Black Bass 3D. Forget the fact I’m pretty much the only one with a 3DS, but I’ve played and enjoyed a variety of fishing games throughout my years of gaming; anyone remember Trophy Bass by Sierra? So I was actually excited to try my hand at a handheld fishing game for the 3DS; I sat there thinking of all the interesting things a developer could do on a powerful system like the 3DS; the gyroscope, the touch screen, the 3D, and yes of course the graphics. Once I powered on the system, I was in awe at what I saw. After I noticed the amount of street passes I received, I inserted Super Black Bass 3D into the 3DS.

Terraria (XBLA/PSN) Review

For those who haven’t played before, Terraria is similar to games like Minecraft where you’re given the reigns to explore an open world. You embark on a quest to use the environment to create tools, build objects with said tools, dig down deep/build high up into the sky, find interesting areas, and play with your friends online; these are all things that you would expect in this genre of game. Terraria sets itself apart here by having the players explore the world in pixel based 2D. You move from left to right exploring this randomly generated world while avoiding zombies and monsters at night and annoying little slimes during the day. The game starts you off with basic tools to get started, things like an axe, pickaxe, and sword so you can chop down trees, dig dirt, and defend yourself. Pro tip to anyone playing, build a house first and foremost once in the game or you’re going to regret going into that first night without shelter.

Terraria out on consoles today! here’s a launch trailer

Terraria just released on both the XBLA and PSN today. 505 games and Re-Logic sent us this nifty new launch trailer to go along side the releases. Also later today, be on the lookout for my review of the game. Is it just as good as the PC version? Does the game pad work well with this game? When will I get a chance to eat a McRibb again? All those answers* and more get answered.

*I do not know when the McRibb will appear again nor is it answered in my review. For all I know it’s actually available right now.
