[XBox 360 Review] Saints Row 2
by Michael Camacho [ Friday, 17th of October 2008 - 10:40 PM ]
Two years after Saints Row brought the heat to the Xbox 360 with a story of gangs, betrayal and an unknown thug upstart ascending the criminal underworld, we finally receive the anticipated sequel.  The game picks up five years after the initial storyline ended with you being taken out in a boat explosion.  During the five years, a lot has occurred in the city of Stillwater, as the 3rd Street Saints have crumbled, Ultor Corporation has moved in, and other gangs have taken control over crime in the city. And so Saints Row 2 begins, and after a short cut scene of two prison guards discussing how you have awoken from your coma and approaching your hospital bed inside a prison, you go right into the character customization screen.

Review: Saints Row 2
by Ben Brody [ Friday, 17th of October 2008 - 03:22 AM ]
WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS LANGUAGE THAT MAY NOT BE APPROPRIATE FOR MINORS (then again, the game itself may not be appropriate for minors, in fact, it isn't appropriate for minors. This will also be a much more unbiased and unopinionated review than G-Nitro's.   You're in the middle of a busy downtown intersection. You wait for it, wait for it, and then BAM you get hit by a speeding car that sends you flying 30 feet in the air and 50 feet away. You immediatly get up and try to do the exact same thing again, it never dawns on you that instead of defrauding an insurance company by feigning injury, you would most very likely need insurance money as you would actually be injured and require major medical attention.

LittleBigPlanet In Review
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 6th of October 2008 - 05:01 PM ]
My Review Of LittleBigPlanet So if you look back at the last few weeks and all the buzz surrounding this game one would think that they were trying to make up for a shotty game. Hell I did. Then again, I was going on the history repeating it theory. But I did get some good hands on time this last weekend with it, seeing as I was not able to make it to E for All. So here we go. Starting out, you are required to flow through a few levels of the game to learn how the game plays and the controls of the game. Read More...

[XBox 360 Review] Pirates Vs Ninjas Dodgeball
by Michael Camacho [ Tuesday, 30th of September 2008 - 11:19 AM ]
I will be one of the first to admit that when I heard about Pirates vs. Ninja Dodge ball, I was genuinely intrigued and interested.  Unfortunately, the game is very quick to disappoint on any expectations you may have had.  Which is unfortunate, as this game could have been a very fun Xbox Live Arcade title. The game, as the title suggests, features Pirates and Ninjas playing dodge ball against each other, as well as Robots and Zombies. It has 3 different modes in Singleplayer, Multiplayer and Co-op, each of which has its own game types. Read More...

CoD4 For Mac Review
by Andy [ Tuesday, 30th of September 2008 - 12:28 AM ]
As you may have read here before, Call of Duty 4 was coming to the Mac. All this time, the release date was constantly pushed back, frustrating us mac users. So now the time has come that you can now have CoD4 for the mac, and I must say it is just as good as I would of hoped it would be. You are able to download the game or purchase the actual game itself. There is quite a bit of controversy around the DRM that Aspyr has implemented. At first glance, 54. Read More...

[XBox 360 Review] Tales Of Vesperia
by Michael Camacho [ Saturday, 27th of September 2008 - 09:27 PM ]
The latest installment of the popular Japanese RPG Tales series, Tales of Vesperia, has arrived on the Xbox 360.  The world of Terca Lumireis is one of which that depends on ancient technology known as Blastia.  Blastia is utilized to perform various tasks from helping to boost combat skills, using magic, dealing with daily activities and work, or even protecting towns from monsters.  The protagonist in Vesperia is a young man named Yuri, whom deviates from the J-RPG stereotype. He isn't whiny or immature, but instead has his own sense of justice and takes matters into his hands, but is very caring even though he tends to not let it show. Read More...

Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli PS2 Review
by Jesse [ Saturday, 27th of September 2008 - 04:56 PM ]
The driving genre of games is fairly crowded and with series like Gran Turismo, Burnout, Midnight Club, Need for Speed, and Ridge Racer, many of the newer, less recognizable racing titles are having a tough time trying to crack into the market. The only way these less established games are going to standout is if they bring something really different and unique to the table, and unfortunately Ferrari Challenge: Trofeo Pirelli fails to do so. Eutechnyx and System 3 essentially put together the basic elements found in just about any racing title. There are 4 game modes to choose from. Read More...

Little League World Series Baseball 2008 DS Review
by Jesse [ Saturday, 27th of September 2008 - 04:48 PM ]
Very simply put, Little League World Series Baseball 2008 is a fun game. Right from when you look at the cover to the moment you throw out the first pitch, it’s clear that Activision and Now Production wanted this to be an enjoyable little game that is easy to pick up and something you’re going to want to play for more than a few minutes at a time. In that regard they’ve succeed for the most part. There are a number of modes open from the start including Exhibition and World Series Mode. Read More...

Saints Row 2 Hands On @ PAX '08
by Michael Camacho [ Tuesday, 2nd of September 2008 - 09:37 AM ]
After playing the first Saints Row for more hours than I can possibly count, I’ve been extremely excited since the announcement of Saints Row 2 coming in 2008.  After one delay, which has pushed the game back to October 14 2008, I about lost my mind.  But I would not have to wait that long to at least get a test run, and this is where PAX 2008 comes into play.    After a short five minute play through during the media time on Friday, I knew I had to get back and play the full first mission of Saints Row. Sunday, I got to finally get a full session in and take in the experience of Saints Row 2. Read More...

*The Last Guy
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 29th of August 2008 - 06:30 PM ]
*The Last Guy - In Review So North America finally got this game on their PSNs as of yesterday. To buy that is. Not a bad little $9.99 download for the console. But I'm sure most of you Sony fans have already heard enough about this game leading up to launch. Well I'm going on further and going to write a half assed review on it for ya. It's funny, but this game kind of reminds me of Infected for the PSP. Only not as blood filled. Read More...

First online review of GTA IV hits the Internet
by Aaron BlueWolf72 Molloy [ Friday, 25th of April 2008 - 11:59 PM ]
IGN posted their full review of the game this morning, which spans seven pages and ends in them awarding the game a 10 out of 10. "Hang in one area of the city long enough and you'll see how traffic and pedestrian flow changes as the day progresses. When it rains, people bring out umbrellas or shield themselves with a newspaper and run for an awning. Cops chase petty thieves unaware that walking down the street is Niko Bellic, cold-blooded killer. There's a perfect balance of mumbling doomsayers to remind you that the reason this city never sleeps is because it's full of nut jobs. Read More...

GameSpot Looking For Some New Staff Members Do you like money? Do you like games? Do you like to make sure people hear your opinions on games? Now if only you could have a job doing just that. Oh wait, CNET/GameSpot is looking for just that. So if you have some amount of writing talent, or at least more than me, take a gander at these new openings. Who knows you could be the person we all go to to see if a game is worth it. Now that I have sensationalized the whole thing way out, the short and dirty of it is that they are looking to fill three spots. Read More...
