Yakuza 4 is a sequel to the successful Yakuza 3 developed and published by Sega exclusively for the PlayStation 3. Now Yakuza might not be about the outstanding gameplay or the brilliant visuals, but it has been more about the intense storyline and the very playable characters. The same goes for Yakuza 4.
The Clone Wars animated series were quite popular among the Star Wars faithful so much so that Traveller’s Tales developed Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. For those of you who don’t know, Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars is a 2011 Lego game based on The Clone Wars animated series. This game has come out for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Windows and Nintendo 3DS. Yeah, it just came out on every possible gaming platform.
Shogun 2: Total War is the latest entry in the Total War series developed by Creative Assembly. It’s been about eight years since Shogun: Total War was released, so the expectations of this sequel look to be skyrocketing for the fact that the Horsham, West Sussex, U.K.-based developer had about eight years to work on this game.
Every year we get to look at a game which steals the show and defines how games are supposed to be. This year I get the feeling Mass effect 2 is that game! Mass Effect has become a fan favorite and the second installment released this January is just taking it to another level. First off, I am surprised (shocked actually) that there are people who did not play the original title. The first reason is quite understandable that it didn’t come out on the Playstation 3 since Microsoft was…
When it was announced that Ghost of Sparta was on its way, I was a little skeptical and was wondering if it could possibly be as good as its predecessor.
Angry Birds has been the top downloaded paid app from the iTunes App Store for the past couple months, and for good reason: it’s addicting as hell.
I knew I wanted to see the Chuck panel first thing in the morning, which meant I’d have to get there early. The panel started at 10am, I got in line at 8:30, figuring I wouldn’t be up front, but I’d still get in. Well, I was right, though just barely.
Day 2 – I actually got into more than one room! This day, I had a daunting goal: spend the morning with SyFy programming in Ballroom 20, then attempt to get into the disaster that was Hall H. Stargate Universe started at 10:30, and after seeing the lines on Thursday, I aimed for a 9am arrival. Much to my surprise, I succeeded in a 9am arrival. However, this already meant the line was Disneyland-esque, zigzagging all around the convention center, and my personal favorite, zigzagged up and down stairs. My…
Another San Diego Comic Con has ended, and, as usual, there were lots of first looks at upcoming movies, tv shows, comics and video games. After 5 years of attendance, you’d think I’d stop being surprised at the grandeur of Comic Con, but every year, it seems bigger and more impressive than the year before.
The sequel to the game of the year award winning platformer starring everyone’s favorite Nintendo mascot is out, and it is simply one of the most polished and engaging Super Mario games to date.
With AAA titles such as Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption, and Halo: Reach being released in 2010, it is easy to miss some of the great downloadable games that are available on the Xbox 360 Live service. Limbo is a perfect example of a game that everyone should experience but probably won’t.
When BioShock released back in 2007 it offered something different to the gaming community. BioShock was one of the most critically acclaimed games of 2007. Had it not been for Crysis and Modern Warfare it just might have been the game of the year for 2007. With huge shoes to fill, there were a lot of expectations for this game.
