Backlog Quest II: Day 28 – Aliens: Infestation – Kills bugs dead

Dear Journal, Today I killed some Xenomorphs with some of the toughest hombre’s this side of Jupiter. Aliens: Infestation is another game that ties into a movie made in the 80’s, taking place shortly after the events of the Aliens film.  A group of Marines are sent to the Sulaco to investigate what happened to the crew, as well as […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 24 – The Trash Pack – Appropriately named

Dear Journal, Today I played the one of the biggest waste of money released for the 3DS (so far). Originally priced at $29.99, The Trash Pack video game is a tie-in to all those Trash Pack toys you’ve probably seen in stores or possibly the obsession of some mini-person in your life. A collection of mini-games really, The Trash Pack […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 23 – Captain America: Super Soldier (NDS) – Light on the super

Dear Journal, Today I fought for truth, justice and the American way. Captain America: Super Soldier is a pretty standard 2.5D side-scrolling beat em’ up that draws comparisons to classic 2D games of the same type.

Now, you’re saying to yourself that you shouldn’t expect much from it, after all, that is like the be-all end-all list of bad signs for a game going in. You’d be mostly […]

A first hand look at the Pokemon Battle Royale art show

People, hey, seriously, look at this. This is awesome. Now, I won’t say that I’m an avid art fan, nor would I say that I don’t have a level of respect for it.  That said, it’s rare that something like the opening of an art gallery can tear me away from Netflix or a cold beer.  Apparently though, all it […]

iTuesday Review: Scribblenauts Remix for iPhone and iPad

I had a chance to briefly play Scribblenauts a couple years ago on a friend’s Nintendo DS. I was instantly blown away with the game. As iOS devices are the only gaming devices I own, I hoped someday it would make an appearance in the App Store. Last month, I happened to notice the game had finally made its way […]
