Commodore returns with a keyboard PC; no beige color scheme spotted

on Fri, Mar 19, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

When I think PC gaming, two brands come to mind: Alienware and Commodore. Alienware, of course, represents the raw, unbridled face of contemporary gaming; a machine with enough graphical might to manage Crysis and Far Cry 2. Commodore, on the other hand, was the videogame posterboy in its day, a glorified game console that doubled as a education machine because it could push...

Nintendo DSi XL makes portable games more social

on Thu, Mar 18, 2010 | By Thomas Rivas

Sporting a screen almost twice the size of its predecessor, the Nintendo DSi XL is aiming to bring people closer together in more ways than one. At 4.2 inches, the larger display makes it much easier to share the gaming experience with a friend without having to worry about bumping heads or limited viewing angles. “For some people, good things come in big packages,” said...

on Thu, Mar 18, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

Am I excited about the soon-to-be-released Final Fight: Double Impact? Oh yes, thanks to an in-depth interview with the collection’s producer and hands-on time at CES 2010.  Those moments provide much-need information about the new features added to both Final Fight and the criminally underrated Magic Sword, but what we did’t walk away with were pricing and launch...

Not long ago, I got to have some personal hands-on time with EA Mobile’s Mirror’s Edge for iPhone coming out this Spring. Players familiar with the original will be happy to know that they are once again controlling Faith, a memebr of an underground group known as the “Runners,” who deliver messages from the outside world into the city by avoiding...

3D Dot Heroes trailer is 100 percent bad ass

on Wed, Mar 17, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

Call it derivative, but you have to hand it to Atlus USA’s marketing team for assembling a chuckle-worthy, memorable, and highly watchable new trailer for 3D Dot Heroes, an incredibly boss looking neo-retro title made exclusively for the PS3. Atlus USA, stay awesome, my friends. ...

Review: Lunar: Silver Star Harmony (PSP)

on Mon, Mar 15, 2010 | By Thomas Rivas

On a quest to revive a classic for the PSP, XSEED’s Lunar: Silver Star Harmony fully utilizes the graphical capabilities of a modern console while staying true to the elements that have made the original a cult classic. With its slew of captivating cut scenes and a soundtrack few titles could ever compete with, there’s no doubt that Lunar: Silver Star Harmony...

Rondo of Blood comes to Virtual Console; sad vampire killers now made happy

on Mon, Mar 15, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

The legendary Rondo of Blood (the boss PC Engine CD title, not the gimped SNES Dracula X) is coming to Virtual Console this week to the delight of many that savor the 2D, whip-cracking battles between the Belmonts and the evils of the night. It’s a great Castlevania entry with awesome music, that you no longer have to import, so what are you waiting for? It’s a...
