Overall episode two has easily topped episode one and the series continues to build momentum towards some devastating conclusion down the road.
J.J. Abrams reinvigorated the Star Trek movie franchise in 2009 with his updated take on the classic sci-fi saga, and with a sequel coming in a few weeks the question then became if the same could be done for the video game version. The answer is an astounding…”meh.” The Star Trek game features decent acting,(…)
Like many other people, SimCity is a part of my formation as a gamer. There is approximately a year of my life in high school where I was engrossed in either the original SimCity or Civilization. Thinking of the original SimCity gives me such nostalgia of zoning areas, building roads and the constant balancing act between implementing pro-actively the beautiful plan in your head and responding re-actively to the many events occurring in the game.

Overall the game is not for everyone. If you enjoy games like Mario Kart, car combat like Vigilante 8, and don’t mind a fixed camera and top-down view this game should be enjoyable as long as you don’t put too much stock in the story itself or over-anime’d characters. At its core Fuel Overdose is a competent battle-racer but comes up a bit short on overall fun value and the ability to retain your attention longer than a few races at a time; feel free to check out the videos of the game on COIN-OP.TV and make your own call!

Ubisoft released the official Assassin’s Creed III trailer today after excitement brewed last week over “leaked” box and poster art hit the Internet. Set during the American Revolutionary War, you will continue the war against the Templars – who are seemingly backing the British Empire to halt colonial independence. I am hopeful that moving on(…)

What do you do when someone calls you a clown? If you’re ex-mob hitman Shank you cut off his hand with a machete. Thus goes the opening cinematic of Shank 2. This one is definitely not safe for the kids, or anyone for that matter. On second thought, if the national media has taught us(…)
