Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition Review (PlayStation 3)

by Alex Langley April 4, 2014 @ 3:04 PM
While its predecessors are known for their grand sense of freedom, Blackgate tries to compensate for its lack of large-scale exploration with a small-scale price... and small-scale fun.

Yoshi's New Island Review (Nintendo 3DS)

by Jon Ledford March 27, 2014 @ 2:09 PM
Gaming's favorite green dinosaur has returned in Yoshi's New Island, which is the newest entry in the Yoshi franchise since Yoshi's Island DS for the Nintendo DS. Given the difference in capabilities between the Nintendo DS and the 3DS, we had rather high expectations for Yoshi's side-scrolling return. And with a title of "New Island," we were hoping that that this side-scrolling platformer headlined by Mario's sidekick would try to bring something new to the table. So let us see if Yoshi's still has what it takes to egg-cel in the modern era.

TriBlaster Review (iOS)

by John Llewellyn Martin March 25, 2014 @ 10:22 AM
BulkyPix, purveyors of fine downloadable titles on the App Store, has released a simple shooter called Triblaster. If you’ve never been a fan of geometry, then now’s your chance to get back at all of those pesky shapes that have plagued you since high school. In Triblaster, you take control of a tiny triangle that rolls from side to side on a plane while other shapes move towards it, coming in from the background.

Pocket Gunfighters Review (iOS)

by Greg Srisavasdi March 17, 2014 @ 3:35 PM
Don't be fooled by the cutesy graphics of Pocket Gunfighters, as this shooter takes aim with a swipe-and-tap control mechanic that will have you hooked in moments. Addiction, however, has its price, even if it comes in the form of a free-to-play app. The devil is always in the details, and although Pocket Gunfighters has tons of bullets to spare, there's one particular showdown that almost ruins the game.

Strider Review (PlayStation 4)

by Luke Brown February 28, 2014 @ 10:22 AM
Back near my childhood home, there was a pizza place called Salvatore's. Not only did it have some of the best pizza in the city, but it was also home to one of the few remaining arcade machines in the surrounding area. I spent countless quarters on the Strider arcade machine at Sal's, from the early '90s all the way through high school. In all my years of playing, I never beat the game, but I have always had a fondness for Strider. Imagine my disappointment then in finding Capcom's latest refresh to be a rather monotonous retro adventure, albeit with a fresh coat of paint.
