Dominant Strategy

Saints Row: The Third Reaper drone I got the idea for this article while I was playing Saints Row: The Third. For those of you who don’t know about it, here’s a quick summary: it’s like what Grand Theft Auto could have been if it didn't end up trying to be like Goodfellas. There are no airs of seriousness and no end to the ludicrous gangster power trips you can take. The power you have as a great gangster warlord comes from the sheer variety of carnage you can create: everything from calling in Burt Reynolds to kill zombies, to beating up SWAT teams with a giant purple dildo. It’s amazing. I love all that variety and freedom. That’s why when the game gives you a Predator drone strike at the beginning of the game, it pissed me off a lot. It’s a great weapon. It can kill everything in a city block. That’s exactly what’s wrong with it.Read More

Amiibos Review

Amiibos With Super Smash Bros. finally released on the Wii U, the Amiibo’s also hit shelves the same day. They definitely do not disappoint. When they were first announced I was very confused over how they were going to get integrated into the game. I have played the previous Smash Bros. titles and this new factor in the franchise was confusing as well as fascinating for me once they finally came out. Link was the first one that I personally picked up from the store since he is a character I use most often. One thing that kind of made me a little skeptical at first was the thirteen dollar price tag but the more you use them, the more they are worth it. Read More

The Legend of Korra Review

The Legend of Korra Review The Legend of Korra is a show that’s a spin-off to the very popular Avatar: The Last Airbender. While not being as popular as the original series itself, it still has quite the fan-base that pushed it to the point of what was originally planned to only be a single season expand into a four season show. Earlier this year, Platinum Games, the company most popular for games such as Madworld, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and the recently released Bayonetta 2, announced that they were going to be making a game based on The Legend of Korra. Needless to say I was very excited, considering the fact that there has not been a good game that had been released for the Avatar: The Last Airbender series, so this would be the best bet. The fact that it was being made by Platinum really made it interesting, considering they are known for making top-notch action games with fantastic combat. However, due to the fact that Activision is the publisher for the game, it turned out that it had a short development cycle that had to be rushed out to meet a deadline. While the game still does feel like a Platinum game, it’s easy to see that it isn’t their best work.Read More

Fantasy Life Review

Fantasy Life Over the past few years social and casual games have sky-rocketed in popularity. App-based games like Farmville and 3DS games like Animal Crossing and Tomadachi Life have been hugely successful in both sales and critical reviews. So it’s no surprise that developer Level-5’s (creators of Rogue Galaxy, Dragon Quest VIII, and the Professor Layton series) latest outing is a life simulator with light, secondary RPG elements. Is the game as addicting and charming as Animal Crossing? Are the RPG elements shallow or do they have some substance to them? Is the game worth your time and money? Well the short answer to that last question is that it depends on what you personally enjoy in games. The long answer is my following review.Read More
