Sony Vita [Review]

Sony Vita [Review]
I stated in my review of the Nintendo 3DS how much I dislike reviewing hardware since people are biased from the manufactures’ standpoint right off the bat.  This review is similar to the 3DS piece since it’s a new foundation for all mobile Vita nonsense to come out of Sony for the next 5-10 years.  Comparing the PSP to the Vita is similar to comparing a Dodge Viper SRT to a Pinto Station wagon:... 

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC: Steam) [Review]

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC: Steam) [Review]
What happens when you take Baseball great Curl Shilling, award-winning fantasy and sci-fi author R.A. Salvatore and brilliant comic-book author, and artist Todd McFarlane along with a design studio purchased from THQ called “Big Huge Games” (Creators of the Rise of Nations trilogy of games as well as Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties) to create Mr. Shilling’s wet dream come... 

Cheap-Ass Game of the Week: Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas [360, PS3]

Cheap-Ass Game of the Week: Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas [360, PS3]
I’ll tell you a quick story to give you a rudimentary history of my brutal and inhumane struggles with the Rainbow Six franchise:  In 1998, I bought a video game titled “Rainbow Six” from Media Play who is no longer in business.  The game came on four CD’s and took over a half an hour to install on my cheap-ass Packard Hell (in part…it was modified to the teeth) desktop computer.  Rainbow... 

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... 

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... 

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception [PS3]

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception [PS3]
Xbox has Halo, Wii has Mario, and PlayStation has Uncharted.  There’s a good reason why Sony decided to package a new PS3 system with Uncharted 3: It’s the reason why we buy these consoles.  The “killer apps” are nothing new; I’ve spoke about them in previous articles, however if you haven’t had a chance to play any of the Uncharted series before, Drake’s Deceptiondoes not fault you... 

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... 

ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection [PS3]

The swan song of the Sony Playstation 2 was Shadow of the Colossus, but many hardcore gamers and critics admit Colossus is still an inspirational game not only in design, but game mechanics and presentation as well. The game involves riding your horse for what seems eternity, and once you get to one of the 16 different Colossi, figuring out how to defeat the boss. The storyline was nothing more than...

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... 

NHL 12 [Xbox 360 / PS3]

Here’s a prediction: About this time next year, EA Sports will release a game titled NHL 13. EA Sports game reviews are starting to read more like the New York Times stock market report and less like a game review each time a new one is released: “Not much new to report, small changes here and there, suggestion is: buy if you need it for some reason.” I still enjoy playing hockey video games,...
