When it comes to dancing I don’t like going out in public and dancing the night away due to thinking I suck at dancing. I do have a feeling there are others like me in that area… However, if I’m with friends and don’t have a care in the world that’s another question. I’ve had the chance to play all three Dance Central games out for the Xbox 360 and always had a ...[Read More]

I love a good puzzle game. I especially love a good puzzle game that does something new and interesting. Portal, and the subsequent Portal 2, were knockouts that kept me coming back for more time and time again. When I sat down last month to take a look at Rat King Entertainment’s first effort, TRI, I instantly felt the same joy and intrigue as the first time I picked up a portal gun. I̵...[Read More]
The Heroes in a Half-Shell are back on the big screen, courtesy of Michael Bay. Is this the return of epic nostalgia classic fans have been hoping for, or the absolute betrayal and disappointment they feared? The answer is surprisingly: neither. New York is under assault at the hands of a criminal terrorist group known as the Foot Clan. Led by the mysterious Shredder, they take what they want, and...[Read More]
One of my favorite Nintendo DS games was a little gem called Elite Beat Agents. It was a great premise, actually. You were an Elite Beat Agent, a secret agent that traveled the world helping those in need…by having rhythm. All you had to do was press the appropriate area on the screen at the appropriate time, dictated by the rhythm of the level’s song, and you would succeed. Simple, bu...[Read More]
I never played the original release of CastleStorm last year, so I can’t comment much on any potential differences between it and its recently released Definitive Edition, for Xbox One and PS4. The basic facts are that the Definitive Edition includes the game (of course) and both of the original DLC packs (From Outcast to Savior and The Warrior Queen), as well as graphical updates with a 108...[Read More]

The Ranger, Talion, was killed by the Black Hand after watching his wife and son sacrificed before him as part of a dark ritual. The Wraith, whose identity will be discussed later in the review (I’d say “spoiler alert,” b...[Read More]
What time is it? ADVENTURE TIME!
Here’s what I know about golf. In the sixth grade, our PE class had a golf segment that lasted about a week. I sucked. I’m pretty good at mini-golf. I think Happy Gilmore is a reasonably accurate depiction of professional golf. Now that I’ve established my credentials, let’s dive into this (short) review of HB Studios’ new golf simulator, The Golf Club. I can’t ...[Read More]
My only experience with the Fluxx franchise was playing Zombie Fluxx at an airport with some people I had met at Penny Arcade expo. I had a lot of fun in that short amount of time and was very excited to try this new set. There is a new type of card included in this set to change things up a bit. The “Surprise!” cards can be played during your turn to have one effect or during another player’s tur...[Read More]
Well, that may be the most interesting title I’ve seen for a game yet.
In 1998, Tri-Star released their Godzilla movie. It bombed at the box office, due to misunderstanding what the appeal of the character was. Now, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have taken their crack at the King of Monsters. Does it measure up to the 60 year legacy that Toho created?
