Old School Adventure (XBLA) Review – Bizarre fun

Old School Adventure
on Thu, Sep 30, 2010 | By John De Large

There are lots of retro-esque video games available for download via Xbox Live Arcade, some of which might remind gamers of childhood, action figures, finger-paints, even milk and cookies. And then there’s Old School Adventure. Old School Adventure is more likely to remind gamers of broken controllers, frustrated tantrums, and staying up until 3AM playing the same level...

Haunted House gets resurrected by Atari this Halloween

O.G.s (original gamers) have fond memories of Atari’s early-80′s pseudo-survival horror classic Haunted House–and I’m one of them. In the game, you had to explore the mansion of Zachery Graves to find three pieces of an urn while avoiding all manner of uglies that go bump in the night. Despite the very rudimentary graphics, it was a fun and surprisingly...

Super Monkey Ball rolls onto Nintendo 3DS

on Wed, Sep 29, 2010 | By Tim Torres

What a day for Nintendo 3DS news. Among the many exciting titles revealed so far, Super Monkey Ball was also announced to show up on Nintendo’s bold new platform sometime in 2011.

The folks over at Mega Man Network provide the much sought-after skinny. Hi everyone! This is Masakazu Eguchi, director of MEGA MAN LEGENDS 3! So, how about that Keiji Inafune special interview?

Drawn: Dark Flight (PC) Review – A pleasing adventure

on Tue, Sep 28, 2010 | By Laurie-Anne Vazquez

I don’t expect much out of Big Fish Games’ library: Sally runs every business under the sun, Farm Frenzy gets repetitive once you purchase the bakery, and every puzzle game is a repetitive point-and-click affair. Except Drawn: Dark Flight. A sequel to Drawn: The Painted Tower, Dark Flight is a richly rendered 2D video game that takes place in a land overrun by shadows....

Sonic Adventure (XBLA) Review – Just as you remember

Sonic Adventure review
on Sat, Sep 25, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

Sonic Adventure, one of the beloved launch titles for the ill-fated SEGA Dreamcast, has been given a slick high-definition makeover for its re-release on PSN and XBLA. Simply put, this is the same Sonic Adventure that we gushed over on 9/9/99 with no major changes other than the 720p visuals that are presented in the 4:3 aspect ratio — but is that enough to hold our...

Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2011 is hardcore hunting action

on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

You can’t take a trip to a local watering hole without catching eye of someone shooting virtual deer with with a replica rifle. If you’re a dedicated gamer like me, you’ve probably given those games a go and never returned as they lack a certain challenge and dynamic that captures the heart of the hardcore. Cabela’s Dangeorus Hunts 2011 is not this...
