0 CommentsPosted by Brandon on August 17, 2010 under Reviews
The impressive world of Red Dead Redemption just got a little larger. Legends and Killers, the first of several paid content packs planned by Rockstar, brings along a nice amount of additions for fans of the multiplayer portion of the game, but seems to leave the campaign out to dry. While the game itself is certainly a contender for game of the year, it remains to be seen if Rockstar can pull off... more.

Like most kids, I spent my childhood looking forward to the weekends. Not only was school let out for those short two days, I had a pocket full of allowance and I was ready to blow it all at the local arcade. I frequented many machines, but to me, a racing game reigned king. This game was Hydro Thunder. I must have spent endless hours defeating my opponents in a ridiculously fast boat, picking up ... more.

Limbo is a game that's quite hard to describe. On the outside, it seems like just another lowly platformer with simple controls and little narrative. It would be easy to pass it off at just another clone of the same sidescroller we've seen over and over, but Limbo manages to set itself apart from the rest in a way that I couldn't have imagined at first glance. Is this the first arcade game that ca... more.

The first game, while certainly flawed, was an interesting approach to a movie based on inflicting pain on yourself, something that obviously can't be felt in a video game. The game basically had you saving others by completing increasingly difficult puzzles, while defending yourself from various th... more.

Everybody loves playing Risk, but no one can ever find the time for it. The games will most likely take up an hour or more of your time, so it's very rare to find the time and patience to actually sit down and play. Luckily, someone saw this problem and decided to find a fix. Risk: Factions wisely cuts the time it takes to play a game in half and creates an interactive experience that I've become ... more.
