Playing video games nowadays, one thing that’s really easy to take for granted is how you travel around the game world. Be it gliding, running, climbing, driving, spinning, falling, grappling, swimming or simply walking around, it’s a pretty major part of the equation. Every once in a while, a game comes around that takes this concept and comes up with something so innovative and fun that you can entertain yourself just traveling around doing nothing. Couple this with impressive art design, a charming story, fun combat and time-based challenges and you’ve got Gravity Rush, currently the best offering on the PS Vita.
Zombies and video games tend to go together like peanut butter and jelly. With most games involving the living dead, you spend a great deal of time mowing as many of the ghouls down as possible, until Telltale steps into the scene with The Walking Dead. Based on the popular comic book and TV series, The Walking Dead focuses more on the drama and reality of what a zombie apocalypse might mean and Telltale’s new episodic game looks to be a great addition to the universe.
One of the promises that Nintendo made when discussing the launch window for the 3DS, was that we would be seeing Kid Icarus: Uprising shortly after the system’s release. As it turned out, unless the 3DS had an extremely long launch window, this was a lofty goal that Nintendo just could not keep. Taking another full year to polish the game and make it perfect, it’s finally here and more than worth the wait.
A few years ago, a young lady who went by the moniker Viga the Otagal did a podcast. Eventually, it podfaded, but I still followed Viga's wherabouts, and now she has her own site, Panelburg.
So here's her review of a book series called The Diarrhea Diaries
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.
