The Darkness 2 [PC Review]

The Darkness 2 [PC Review]
Dual-wielding is for n00bs.  The Darkness 2 takes the story-arc created with the first Darkness game and puts it on a linear shooter through a short psychosomatic made-for-television movie, of sorts.  The biggest change, if you enjoyed the first Darkness, is the change in how the game itself plays.  Darkness 2 is more of a Battlefield or Call of Duty-style game where the first Darkness had more... 

King Arthur II: The Role-Playing Wargame [PC]

King Arthur II: The Role-Playing Wargame [PC]
I love games based on historical facts such as the Total War series of games, and I also enjoy the games where the facts blur together into the proverbial fire for the more fantastical element of storytelling.  King Arthur II is more of the latter.  The quests and trials of King Arthur the human have been well documented many times in different cultures, however this version is more along the lines... 

Cheap-Ass Game of the Week: Hoard [Steam / PSN]

Cheap-Ass Game of the Week: Hoard [Steam / PSN]
Every time I hear someone say “Hey, you play Hoard yet?”  I think of Warcraft.  Old habits die hard, I’m afraid. Hoard, as opposed to “the Horde,” is a simplistic and minimalistic game where you play a dragon breathing fire on sections of a village to steal their gold and battle other dragons doing the same.  The more gold you collect before the time runs out, the better you rate against... 

Cheap-Ass Game of the Week: Forsaken World

Cheap-Ass Game of the Week: Forsaken World
I’m surprised Blizzard hasn’t taken Perfect World to court.  After playing Forsaken World, the similarities between World of Warcraft and Forsaken World are too numerous to list here in this review.  The biggest similarity is play-style with Forsaken Worldcasting spells and effects by using the common leveling system between classes to defeat mobs and bosses.But I’m getting ahead of... 

Widescreen Warrior’s 2011 Gaming Christmas List

Widescreen Warrior's 2011 Gaming Christmas List
Christmastime is the time of the year where people you rarely see get to choose what you’ll be doing with your free time for the next week after the break.  In many cases, they’ll know only a few small details about your free time and choose the easiest thing to pick up, usually something at Wal-Mart or the 7-11 down the street, which means the selections will be picked over and limited to strange... 

Batman: Arkham City [PC: Steam, Xbox 360, PS3]

Batman: Arkham City [PC: Steam, Xbox 360, PS3]
I have to apologize to my fans for not being online much as of late, see, I’ve been busy. I don’t mean with anything tangible, like work or taking care of the twins or anything along the lines a normal responsible human being. You see, I’m Batman. I have a job to do: Clean the city of Arkham from the bad-guy scum trying to take over the seedy night. It’s my duty to prevent this act from happening... 

Cheap-Ass Game of the Week: Wasteland Angel [PC-Steam]

Do you like guns, cars, women in torn shreds of clothing and fast paced war-zone action? Welcome to Wasteland Angel, where you play the character aptly named “The Wasteland Angel,” who travels from town to town to defend those poor war-torn refugees from the devastation of gangs and others who wish to torture them. Wasteland Angel is a nod to the old 1941-style shooters in a 3D landscape where... 

F1 2011 [PS3, Xbox360, PC]

It seems there has been a rash of enjoyable sports games of recent, most of them solid franchises with minor upgrades to the core engine and game play aspects themselves making them even better than before. F1 2011 from Codemasters is no different. What’s been upgraded, you ask? Everything is polished, from graphics, audio, physics, environment, realism and controller vibration to starting a racing... 

Cheap-Ass Game of the Week: Bastion

I could jump up and down a few dozen times and tell you to stop asking me inane questions such as “Why?” and get Bastion. Download it for PC or Xbox, just get it. Stop reading this and go get it now. If you’re still reading this, you are one of the few intelligent people who wants to know the honest answer of “why?” and I’ll break Bastion down into three major categories for why you need... 

Dead Island [Xbox 360, PS3, PC-Steam]

I’ll say it one last time: I’m tired of zombies. Can we please come up with a monster a bit more creative than an undead human who feasts on the brains of living humans? Better yet, think of it this way: how do chickens see us? Do they design video games where you need heavy artillery to prevent the humans from stealing their legs and wings? No. Neither do cows, or pigs, or whatever the meat...
