Parasite Eve 2 comes from a time when Square Enix was merely Squaresoft, FMVs were the height of graphical sophistication, and a memory card was a necessity, just in case you ever wanted to turn your console off. The original Parasite Eve was a success, both critically and commercially, and thus it received a much overdue re-release on the Playstation store earlier this year under the PSOne Classics label. Parasite Eve 2 quickly followed suit, released in its original 4:3 aspect �glory�, with some decidedly aged graphics. [read more]

Bulkypix seems to be one of the more heavily focused developers on this site, although their previous releases haven�t exactly set the world on fire. Their search for pick-up-and-play gold on the iPhone continues with Crazy Escape, which tasks players with rescuing loose sheep from wolves whilst driving a jeep with two penguins behind the wheel.

Corpse Party, the first PSP visual novel to come to the US from Japan. Published by 5pb., and developed by Team GrisGris, American localization publisher XSEED thought that this game would be a great addition to their library. As it is already at a disadvantage for being in a genre that few gamers have experienced and with the PSP on its way out, can Corpse Party show us what we have been missing or will it fade away and die a gruesome death like its characters?

I think someone at Hello Games must have caught themselves looking out into the distance reliving their own childhood dreams of jumping the Grand Canyon in a Jet Powered Motorbike when they came across the idea for Joe Danger. Xbox 360 owners now have the chance to sample some flaming hoop action with the updated Joe Danger: Special Edition [read more]

War of the Worlds is one of the earliest and best-known science fiction novels to be written, having been published in 1898. With the original novel, an infamous 1938 radio adaptation, a concept album by Jeff Wayne and numerous film adaptations, War of the Worlds is a classic example of a timeless story. Other Ocean Interactive, developers of a new adaptation for Xbox Live, have decided to skip out on the well-known narrative, and have instead introduced a new story, new characters and new locations into their game, although the events do run parallel to what occurs in the book.

Much like golf, darts, or ten-pin bowling, fishing is one of those activities which will always be at the centre of a debate of what is the difference between a sport and a pastime. However, in similar fashion to the Cabela hunting games, Sega Bass Fishing is classified by gaming standards as lying in the sports genre, so I guess that�s one strike for the fishing purists out there.

Zombies to the left of me, zombies to the right of me, zombies above, and zombies below. It would appear that over the years the dreaded zombie outbreak that has been depicted in oh-so-many deliciously atrocious B movies have surreptitiously invaded the world of the video game. [read more]

Afterfall: Insanity was distributed based on an interesting premise; if it managed to pick up ten million pre-orders, all worth only a single dollar, the developers of Intoxicate Studios promised to donate ten percent of that to charity. Understandably, and as far as I have been able to tell, they did not reach this goal. And while the game is certainly worth the original one dollar they were asking for, I can't honestly say that I would be willing to pay much more than that. [read more]

Serious Sam 3 is no different than its predecessors in that it is a medkit and armor shard-grabbing trigger-happy gorefest with little to no story to speak of, with what might possibly be one of the highest body counts ever seen in a video game. Other, lesser games such as Duke Nukem Forever made a strong case that maybe some conventions are better off dead in the water. Does Serious Sam 3 enforce this, or is it a shining example of how you can have mindless fun in a much more mindful age? [read more]

There is just too much to play this year, and having The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim released alongside all those other big games has set me back months. Bethesda's new titan of a game has done better than any other Elder Scrolls game before it, and has made a strong imprint on Internet culture and grabbed the attention of a whole new audience of people.

Grease needs no explanation, since it�s the forefather of the high school musicals that have been springing up as of late. With its lively cast of characters, catchy and iconic musical numbers, turning Grease into a dance game seemed like a good idea. But in a sea of widely popular dance games, can Grease make itself the highlight of the sock hop? [read more]


How was 2011 for gaming?

The BEST year for gaming in a long time!
It was pretty good, but I remember years that were better.
Not a memorable year, yet far from the worst.
This is the worst year of gaming EVER, and I'm glad the year is over with.
