After picking up my brand new Playstation Vita, I inserted the fingernail-sized card that housed my copy of Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Having heard rumblings of a particular downloadable title being quite good, I logged onto the Playstation Network to check it out. Priced at only eight dollars, I figured it was worth a try, so I downloaded it. This brings us to today, where I’m only a few chapters into Uncharted: Golden Abyss, but I’ve gotten more than my eight dollars worth out of Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack.
Capcom is one of those developers that tends to find a series that works and run with it. Resident Evil is a series that shows this concept quite well. Don’t let the six in the title of the upcoming PS3/360 title fool you, this series has more spinoffs and re-releases than a 1970s sitcom. The latest entry in the series, Resident Evil: Revelations, hit the 3DS in February boasting amazing graphics and Circle Pad Pro support. Does this latest game live up to the high standards set by the series, or does it misspell its way into insignificancy?
It's a well-known fact that just about anything that involves Hayao Miyazaki and his production company Studio Ghibli will always be worth its weight in gold. Even if it isn't 100% good there is something about one of their films that makes it worth watching more than once. Such is the case with the latest from Ghibli: The Secret World of Arrietty.
It's been almost four decades since we had a high-profiled silent movie the world's gone crazy over (Mel Brooks's classic Silent Movie), thanks in part to our film industry being laid brick by brick with a 100% ratio of talking in it. Michel Hazanavicius's The Artist, however, does more without words than just about every film released in 2011.
As a day-one owner of the Nintendo 3DS, I’ll admit that choice software for the system has been few and far between. While we’ve already had hits like Ocarina of Time 3D and Star Fox 64 3D to enjoy, it just hasn’t been the same. What we’ve all been waiting for is a great game to play that wasn’t released in the mid-to-late 90s. Nintendo has finally answered our pleas with Super Mario 3D Land. Is this the breakout brand-spanking new game for the 3DS, or is it simply too little too late?
