Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest review

A fantastic evolution of the original adventure

Wrestling. More importantly, wrestling video games. I grew up watching wrestling as a kid, and being a fan of wrestling and video games meant I played a bunch of WWE/F video games.

So... Better than NES Remix?

Anyone else find it weird that a Mario character who can't jump to save his life has more fan-driven momentum than freaking Dolph Ziggler?

A haunting, gripping ride from start to finish

XType Plus review

XType Plus review

Simple, yet effective

XType was a simple arcade shoot'em up freeware game released a while back, and now it's making its appearance on the Wii U in the form of XType Plus. Is this title any different from the original? Is it worth the three dollar price of admission? In XType Plus, you simply shoot at a several different boss... read more

Comic Workshop review

Comic Workshop review

I'm no mangaka, but YOU could be!

Okay, let me begin by saying that Comic Workshop is not a game, so much as it is a tool. That said, let the review begin! Comic Workshop, put simply, is an app that gives you the tools of a comic artist. As I waited for the download to complete, I was worried that the app would be a clone of all of the... read more

Philadelphia Gamestops Now Require Fingerprints for Trade-ins

And they already have your credit card number...

For those of us growing up in the post-9/11 era, crazy security measures are rather commonplace.

Insert Joke about the iCloud Stealing your Soul

I'm beginning to notice a pattern among indie games as of late, that is, they always have a stellar, original, and memorable concept with less-than-stellar execution of said idea. Don't get me wrong, I play more indie games these days than I do in-store releases; I'd play Need For Weed 3D any day over Dead... read more
