Demigod Review

Friday, May 29th, 2009 by Zach Potts

Title: Demigod
Developer/Publisher: Gas Powered Games / Stardock
Platform: PC
Release Date: 04/14/2009
Number of Players: 1, 10 online

Demigod is an RPG-fighter/strategy for the PC which allows you to play as one of eight characters, all of whom have their own unique play style and attacks. The game is heavily focused on multiplayer, but it’s been having some issues online. But let’s focus on what the game is all about.


The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena Review

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009 by Zach Potts

Title: The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
Developer/Publisher: Starbreeze AB / Atari
Platform: Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Release Date: 04/7/2009
Number of Players: 1 single player, 2-12 online

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is a sequel to 2004’s Xbox exclusive Escape from Butcher Bay. Dark Athena plays almost identically to Butcher Bay, featuring the same first-person perspective and including many similar mechanics, but naturally having a unique storyline which follows Riddick on a quest to escape a prisoner ship and the clutches of some ruthless mercenaries. Not only does Dark Athena feature this all new adventure, but it also includes the original Butcher Bay game, except newly remastered with enhanced graphics, as well as some online multiplayer.

Tom Clancy’s HAWX Review

Thursday, April 9th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

Title: Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.
Developer/Publisher: Ubisoft
Platform: Windows PC, Playstation 3, Xbox 360
Release Date: 3/06/2009 consoles, 3/17/2009 PC
Number of Players: Single player, 4 player Co-Op, 8 Player Versus

Despite the cheesy, acronym-heavy title, which from this point on I will spell HAWX, Tom Clancy’s HAWX is another welcome title in the Tom Clancy series of games. A nice departure, though, players are no longer ground-bound. In HAWX players finally take flight to the skies of the Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter universe. Finally, we all get to play as the air support we’ve called numerous times in the GRAW series of games. The burning question is whether or not this Clancy game works with wings. The short answer, yes.


Silent Hill: The Escape Review

Friday, April 3rd, 2009 by Rafael Perez

Title: Silent Hill: The Escape
Developer/Publisher: Konami / Konami
Platform: Apple iPhone, iPod Touch
Release Date: 12/23/2008
Number of Players: Single Player

Silent Hill: The Escape for the iPhone and iPod Touch is the second Konami game for the device I’ve played, and this one is even worse. Like their other effort, this title is simple, boring, repetitive, and short.


F.E.A.R. Project Origin Review

Friday, February 13th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

Title: F.E.A.R. Project Origin
Publisher/Developer: Warner Bros. Interactive/Monolith
Platform: PC, PS3, Xbox 360
Release Date: 02/10/2009
Number of Players: Single player campaign/ 16 player Multiplayer

As I set out to write this review (having stayed up till 4am to finish the game) I find myself still a bit torn. Did I like this game or not? Well, obviously that’s always a question in mind of a review writer, but I find myself unable to fully answer that question. I think it may be due, in part, to my expectations and, perhaps, my recollection of the previous title (yes, I am ignoring a certain titles which were NOT F.E.A.R.). The other part that may be interfering with my clear view of FEAR 2 is that I have been inundated with horror titles over the last year.


Sins of the Solar Empire: Entrenchment Release

Monday, February 9th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

Stardock has announced that the first micro-expansion for Sins of a Solar Empire, developed by Ironclad, will be released on Impulse, Stardock’s digital distribution system, on the 25th of February.

“One of Stardock’s key strategies for success with past games has been the incorporation of player feedback from our open betas,” said Stardock President and CEO Brad Wardell. “We want fans to get the most of this expansion and are making sure we’re delivering the best content possible.”

More goodness on the way from Stardock and Ironclad. I tell you, these guys are quickly climbing the ranks in my mind as one of the best companies in the biz. If you haven’t already taken a gander, you should check out another upcoming title from under the Stardock flag, Demigod, by Gas Powered Games.

Dead Rising 2 Announced.

Monday, February 9th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

Zombies are always welcome on my gaming consoles. Ninja v. Pirates, ha! Zombies would school them both. Well, Capcom has officially announced Dead Rising 2 today. The sequel to the 1.5 million copy selling Zombie-fest will actually be sauntering over to multiple platforms off-the-bat this time…


Stardock Opens 2nd Studio

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

Who says the economy is totally tanked? Obviously Stardock is doing well enough in all of this. If you missed their big hit of 2008 Sins of a Solar Empire, shame on you. You’re missing out on a fantastic game. If that’s not your cup of tea, well how about their Gamer’s Bill of Rights? Either way you slice it, Stardock is a company to keep your eye on in the gaming industry.

Well, now there’s more to watch…


Fallout 3 DLC.

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

If you’ve been itching for more Fallout 3, today’s your lucky day. The Operation Anchorage DLC has been released today for Fallout 3 for Game for Windows Live and Xbox 360 (sorry PS3 owners, who knows what Bethesda is doing).

The DLC adds a new story, adding hours more playtime (which it took me 52 hours to get through everything the first time) and new achievements.
