Because, yeah, there is definitely a wrong way to play it.
It stars a wolf and a dragon, and it plays like a Zelda game. If you haven’t played it yet, you should be kicking yourself.
Microsoft’s motion gaming device for the Xbox 360 is finally here. Included among the dozen or so launch titles are a handful of game starring talking animals. But before you go buy everything with fur, check out the breakdown on which games are actually fun.
I don’t think I could use a hyperbole to describe Super Mario Galaxy 2 that hasn’t already been said. I won’t claim that it’s the Second Coming of Video Game Jesus or anything, but damn, this game is really really fun.
Wait, SEGA, what is this? Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing? It’s Sonic the Hedgehog, in a car, launching boxing gloves, doing flips off ramps, powersliding around turns and turbo boosting. This is, like, a totally fun kart racing game, from a company that makes some of the worst kart racing games known to man!
I love me some Jak and Daxter. The Naughty Dog series is one of my favorite platformers of all time. Since the original developer has seemingly moved on to bigger, better titles (Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will blow your mind and your dick), the duo has changed hands a couple times. Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier was supposed to be the next game in the series, but after playing it I’m just hoping it gets retconned away.
So you’d think with the success of Super Smash Bros, a developer would have made a licensed knockoff by now. The series is a decade old now, and it’s taken the same developer, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to finally give me that ho-hum letdown I’ve been craving all this time?
If you’re like me (and you’d better be!), the idea of a first person shooter with a sci-fi story starring Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, and Tricia Helfer is enough to pique your interest. Throw in Bungie as the developer and it’s shaping up to multiple levels of awesome. Really, the only thing that could ruin an experience like this would be a way too short story mode and a weak multiplayer. Oh wait, “Halo 3: ODST” has those too? Well, fuck.
I’m on to you Nintendo. See, the general public may be unaware, but I can tell you’ve got a team of the weirdest developers around. Take “Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story” for example. Not only is this one of the funniest, and most entertaining RPGs on the Nintendo DS, the story also has more kinks than the alternative board on fChan.
Hey “The Beatles: Rock Band” is out. You don’t want to read 6,000 words telling you it’s fucking rad, so I’ll use less than 500. Because I’m a real goddamn journalist.
