Dark Void Demo This Week

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010 by Ryan L. Lopees

I’ve been itching for this game since we first saw it played at last year’s CES party hosted by Capcom. The wait is almost over with the official release of Dark Void coming this 01/19/2010. Until then we can get a taste of Capcom’s rocketeering action with the demo releasing this week. The Dark Void demo will be available on Xbox Live tomorrow, Janurary 6th and on the Playstation Network Thursday, January 7th.  Sorry PC gamers. Check out the news here.

Looks like 2010 is off to a good start for gamers.

SpikeTV’s VGA 2009 Winners

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

If you missed SpikeTV’s airing of the 2009 Video Game Awards, don’t worry.. it’s Spike. They will play it another 20 times before the month is up. However, if you want to skip all the hub-bub and just get down to the winners, I am more than happy to give you the summary, with a twist. See, I don’t always agree with the “winners”, but I also don’t feel like I am anyone special to make my own “Best of” list. Instead, I just offer my “Editor’s Choice”. Like I said, I don’t always agree with the chosen “winners” and this is just something as simple as what I prefered. Also included with the “Editor’s Choice” is a quick score here from Gamers Platform, even if we haven’t gotten the reviews posted. Yay us! Bear in mind, those are my personaly scores, not my writers. I like to let them have their own say in things like that.

Note: Individual tastes may vary. The views expressed in this article specifically do represent Gamers Platform and its parent affiliation The GameTechWorld Network. If they didn’t I wouldn’t be writing them here, would I? I honestly never have gotten the point of all those disclaimers. Pansies. Anyway, the winners are…


Review - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 PC

Thursday, November 12th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Title: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Publisher/Developer: Activision/Infinity Ward
Platforms: PC, Playstation 3, Xbox 360
Release Date: 11/10/2009
Number of players: Single Player, Up to 18 players online

There’s been controversy, there’ve been protests, there’ve been more posts in regards to this game than you could shake a thing you shake at stuff. Well, now it’s come and it’s time to take a look at Infinity Ward’s latest Call of Duty installment. This is definitely going to go down as one of the most anticipated/loathed titles of the year, but the question is whether or not it stands up under fire. 20+ hours later of playing… it’s time to take a look. Yeah, 20+ hours. Now you know what I’ve pretty much been doing since 9pm PST Monday night.


Space, The Final Frontier.

Shattered Sun Logo

I’d actually become skeptical as to whether the first person shooter genre had any more room for development in new directions, or whether it was World War 2 and Zombies for the next decade.

But this morning, after letting myself out of the trunk of my car, (The only place I felt safe sleeping after watching ‘Paranormal Activity’ last night.) I discovered to my surprised the genre had not been completely mined out…

It seems developers Futuremark have a little something to say about that with their new title, Shattered Horizon . namely, what they have to say appears to be ‘We see your Nazis and raise you one resource war in the shattered remnants of the exploded moon.’ This is a title that definitely contains intriguing possibilities we haven’t seen explored in far too damn long.

I look forward to sinking my teeth into more as it comes.

X-men Origins: Wolverine Review

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees


 Title: X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Developer/Publisher: Raven Software/Activision
Platform: PC, Playstation 2, Playstation 3, PSP, Wii, DS, Xbox 360
Release Date: 05/01/2009
Number of Players: Single-player

Let me open by stating the fact that I actually have yet to see the film. Normally, that is a good thing with video game tie-in titles. However, from everything I’ve heard the movie does the IP just as much justice as the game. That said, and after having puts hours upon hours into the game, let’s get our Snikt! on and see how Raven Soft handled the latest Wolverine title.


Demigod Review

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.

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009 by Zach Potts

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is a sequel to 2004’s Xbox exclusive Escape from Butcher Bay.

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.

Because I Give Credit Where Credit is Due… Part Deux

Friday, April 24th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

While I am known for my profane tirades when dealing with electronics manufacturers who fail me (see- Alienware, Asus, HP, Dell… oh the list could go on forever) and I am definitely one of “those” consumers who you absolutely hate have call you if you are some hapless Customer Service Representative (Yes, I’ve made CSRs cry by the time I was done with them) I also like to make sure to give proper kudos to companies who do right by me.

As I reported almost two weeks ago, my Xbox 360 Elite (which was a launch “Elite”) decided it no longer liked me and show me how it felt about me with three flashing red rings. I admit, I was miffed. In fact, when I purchased all three of the current generation consoles I could have been quoted over a dozen times in saying “10:1 says the Xbox goes first”. Well, sadly, on that fact I was right. But Microsoft has treated me with great care, something that shocks me as I’ve had a lot of negative to say about them in nearly 10 years of IT work.

I shipped my 360 Elite out on 4/14 to be repaired. I asked very politely (something unusual from me in moment like that) if, due to the usage of the unit, an expedite could be placed on the repaid of the unit. It is now 4/24 and my 360 Elite should be here within the hour (my usual delivery time for UPS). Excluding weekends it took Microsoft a whopping 9 days to resolve my issue and this includes shipping time. So for all of you out there who think I play favourites let me go on record as saying “Microsoft, you rock.”

PS- I opted to keep the Xbox 360 Arcade unit I purchased to replace the missing Elite model because, well, I can and I think Microsoft earned the business. That brings the tally in my home office to: 3x Xbox 360s, 2x PS3s, 2x DS Lites, 1x PSP Slim, 1x Wii, 2x Gaming Laptops, 2x Gaming Desktops and a Macbook Pro. At this moment, I am very happy I live so close to the Hoover Dam (don’t ask what the monthly electricity bill is…don’t).

It’s Gold Time for Velvet Assassin

Friday, April 24th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

With a show of new screeshots, Southpeak’s sexy spy seductress has slipped its stealthy self off onto the presses. That’s right, I like rampant alliteration. But who cares about that? It’s time to slip into the skin tight pants of Southpeak’s new assassin as Velvet Assassin has officially gone gold, set for its release date of April 30th on the Xbox 360 and Windows PC. From what I’ve seen so far, there are definitely less attractive ways to die…
