Features for Monster Hunter 4

Monday, July 12th, 2010 by jay

I try to deny it but I may have secretly been interested because it’s on the Wii and as any Wii game review on most major sites will tell you over and over again the system lacks a plethora of high-quality third-party titles. Maybe it’s just that I don’t have a PSP and the series …

PSP RIP

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010 by christian

It finally happened.  After almost three years of excessive abuse and fairly steady play, my PSP-1000 has reached the point of no return.  It still runs, but not well, and at this point I don’t think I’ll ever get it to read Memory Sticks.

Rather than try to fix the damn thing, I decided to replace …

A Lazy E3 Summary

Thursday, June 17th, 2010 by christian

This E3 was, in some ways, a reversal of what most gamers expected.

This time around Nintendo schooled everyone, while both MS and Sony looked lost …

Quick Take – Devil May Cry 4

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010 by christian

Recently I finished playing Devil May Cry 4. Well, not finished finished, but I got through the final boss’ first form before giving up on the bullshit that happens immediately afterward. This game got quite a lukewarm reception when it first came out, and I wanted to see whether these critics were full of …

Making Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Truly Rule

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010 by jake

There are a whopping two arcade machine series on Earth that I can beat consistently on one purchase, regardless of sequel number or difficulty setting: Soul Caliber and Marvel vs. Capcom.

The key to Soul Caliber, you see, is Maxi and his awesome ability to start spinning his nunchuks, never pausing for a break as …

Art Can Never Be Games

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010 by jackson

Everyone loves discussing why games are or aren’t art. Even I can’t help it. The subject is just too hard to pass up. It exists just so intellectual jerkoffs can spill ink (do people even spill ink anymore?) over it and feel good. This is why I’m not going to write about it anymore. Instead, …
