Tecmo Bowl To Evolve With ‘Throwback’

Tecmo Bowl To Evolve With ‘Throwback’
If you check out my list of games that I’ve played, you’ll be hard pressed to find any sports titles on there. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy most sports & their gaming counterparts, although I may not be as much of a fan as your average male. It’s just been a combination of...

W!Games Is A ‘Greed’y ‘Corp’oration

W!Games Is A ‘Greed’y ‘Corp’oration
Alright, I was probably reaching way down in the bottom of the cheese bag for that title. But seriously, W!Games has been hyping Greed Corp for some time now so seeing it finally launch (& there-by giving me a chance to play it) is something I wanted to bring to your attention. The Xbox LIVE Arcade...

Microsoft Throws A Block Party

Microsoft Throws A Block Party
A lot of you know that I’m a big fan of Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade program. In fact, I’ve been wanting Microsoft to do more events like that throughout the year, as I think it’ll draw more attention to the service & spotlight some really good titles. Now, it looks like the...

Behemoth #3 Is Now BattleBlock Theater

Behemoth #3 Is Now BattleBlock Theater
I must admit, I have yet to warm up to the latest title from The Behemoth. I’ve been watching it with a weary eye for many months now & yet still can’t quite get myself to buy in. Castle Crashers was a ton of fun that also happened to benefit from launching at a time when the selection...

REMINDER: Hungering for a taste of Final Fantasy XIII? Square Enix is giving gamers an early sample with a Final Fantasy XIII bus tour. Oddly though, it’ll only be touring the San Francisco & surrounding Bay Area. Not much of a tour, but if you live in that region & want to check it out,...

Daily Gaming Tidbits 01/11/10

Crayon Physics is a small indie PC title that really deserves your attention. It’s a brilliant puzzler that will tax your brain, regardless of the kindergarten-esq visuals the crayons provide. The good folks at Kloonigames are celebrating the title’s 1st birthday by doing a “pay what...

Review: C&C Red Alert 3: Commander’s Challenge (XBLA)

Review: C&C Red Alert 3: Commander’s Challenge (XBLA)
Command & Conquer. The franchise that pretty much defined the RTS genre (& was coincidentally my first introduction to the genre). It started over a decade ago & where RTS games like Warcraft have evolved into something else entirely or Age of Empires whose fate seems to have been tied with...

Daily Gaming Tidbits 10/19/09

I’ll start this edition off with a question: How is Rock Band for iPhone/iTouch? As a huge fan of the franchise, I’m curious to see how it transitioned over. Is it just a touch screen version of Unplugged? Anyway, the good folks at EA Mobile announced a couple of songs that are available...

Review: Shadow Complex (XBLA)
“It’s funny, as even though I had only met her a few months before, I felt like I had known her all my life. I was surprised it took me as long as it did to introduce her to Mamma. I rarely bring women to my parent’s place because I always felt like there was more scrutiny than hospitality...

Review: Battlefield 1943 (Xbox 360)

Review: Battlefield 1943 (Xbox 360)
As gamers, where would we be without the stories & settings to come out of World War II? It’s a time period that’s been beat to death & resurrected only to be beat to death once again so many times that many gamers refuse to play anything that has the Axis or Allied powers in it....

Trailer: Madballs In…Babo Invasion

I LOVED MADBALLS! I had a ton of them. When I heard they were making a game out of it, I was both intrigued & concerned at the same time. Intrigued because I wanted to see what PlayBrains could do with it & concerned that they would ruin the license. After deeing this launch trailer (the game...

Review: Droplitz (XBLA)

Review: Droplitz (XBLA)
When I initially saw the first screenshots of Droplitz, my first though was of the old puzzlers that came out during the Tetris craze like Pipe Dream. After playing the plumbing puzzler, I found that assessment wasn’t too far off. This is a puzzle game in it’s purest sense. There is no storyline....
