Because, yeah, there is definitely a wrong way to play it.
Lovejoy here, along with new writers Duroc and Corvi. We’re chatting about E3 2010 and whether or not 3D and motion controlled gaming is cool or total bullshit. Here’s a hint: if it forces you to dance, or buy $200 glasses, it’s retarded.
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!
The mysterious Project Needlemouse has been teased for a while now, but today SEGA officially announced that the 2D Sonic game is going to be called Sonic the Hedgehog 4.
Apparently those half dozen 2D Sonic games on the Game Boy Advance, DS, and PSP don’t count.
2009 wasn’t the best year for games. I blame the economy, and possibly Facebook and their shitty games. But it wasn’t a total bust. There were actually quite a few great games to play, so many in fact that I didn’t get to nearly all of them (I try to have a social life, however sad it may be). But of the ones I did play, Here are a few of the standout titles.
Nintendo is apparently sick of Vietnamese kids with Aspergers making awesome Super Mario Bros videos. So included as special content in the upcoming New Super Mario Bros Wii is a series of videos showing off “super skill” gameplay.
This shit is crazy. Seven videos after the break.
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?
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.
Look, I get it. You’re a hardcore gamer. You would never pull out Team Fortress 2 to stick in a game with Disney on the title. And for the most part, I understand. A lot of you probably got burned when you attempted to play “Bolt.” But you know, not all the games based on the movies you’re too old to like are terrible. In fact, some of them are downright decent.
