BioShock 2 Review
5 CommentsPosted by Chris Meichtry on February 15, 2010 under Uncategorized
BioShock, developed by Irrational Games, was one of the smash hits of 2007 and is still highly regarded as an outstanding experience, one of the best in gaming history. Full of objectivist views—often echoing Ayn Rand's classic novel Atlas Shrugged—and a tale full of deceit and horrific genetic modification, it is revered by many and is considered one of the best storylines in modern gami... more.

Welcome to another installment of Wiikly WiiWare Wiiview. The games this week are Hubert The Teddy Bear: Winter Games, Bloons, Tomena Sanner, and Blaster Master Overdrive. For the most part, it was a rather bland week full of mediocrity and disappointment. But on the bright side, I am very excited about the new Blaster Master remake, which I talk about at the end of this article... Hub... more.

Operating in Derby, England since 2003, Strawdog Studios is a small team of developers looking to make a big splash in the gaming industry. Just recently, I was given the opportunity to ask the folks at Strawdog Studios a few questions about the company as well as their upcoming title Space Ark, a bright and colorful foray into the world of "bat-and-ball" action. Everything about this game app... more.
Mole Control Review
2 CommentsPosted by Chris Meichtry on February 9, 2010 under Uncategorized
So often these days, games seem to be doing no more than simply recycling old tried-and-true methods in an attempt to cash in without having to be original. At first glace, Mole Control might seem like yet another one of these games. But spend just five minutes with this new Remode title and it's easy to see that it does more than imitate a classic game; it reinvents it! The folks at Remode... more.

Yesterday afternoon, I had the privilege of listening in on a conference call with members of the development teams behind BioShock 2 and its multiplayer mode: 2K Marin and Digital Extremes, respectively. It was a session that went on for nearly two hours, twice as long as anticipated. Due to the extended length, there unfortunately wasn't enough time for an open Q&A session between the deve... more.

Welcome to another installment of Wiikly WiiWare Wiiview. The games this week are 5 In 1 Solitaire, Tumblebugs 2, and Tales of Monkey Island: Rise of the Pirate God. Because I have already reviewed the PC version of Tales of Monkey Island, I will not be reviewing the WiiWare version. The two are nearly identical—aside from very slight controller differences—and reviewing it again would ... more.

KrissX (pronounced "criss cross") is the latest puzzle title to make its way to the Xbox 360, a console that is greatly lacking when it comes to quality puzzle games these days. While there isn't anything particularly groundbreaking, it is a welcome addition for the casual crowd who may have been feeling a bit neglected over the past few months. Don't get me wrong, the Xbox Live Arcade has a... more.
Assassin’s Creed II: The Battle of Forlì Review
2 CommentsPosted by Chris Meichtry on February 2, 2010 under Uncategorized
As much as I loved Assassin's Creed II, its first offering of DLC left me feeling surprisingly disappointed. While I certainly wasn't expecting the new Sequence to go above and beyond the main game's experience, I was at least expecting a certain level of quality and quite frankly, I feel that I deserved a lot more for my money. Don't get me wrong, I was thrilled to revisit my personal favor... more.

Sands of Destruction Review

Over the past couple of years, the classic Japanese-style RPG has seemed like somewhat of a dying breed. Previous generations of consoles always managed to provide a home for the never-ending wave of incredible tales. Everywhere you looked, another new game was climbing out of the woodwork, and for a time, it felt like each new title was even better than the last. Sadly, ever since entering... more.
