Saints Row: The Third: Genkibowl VII Review

The best parts of Genkibowl VII involve offhand violence moonlighting as a game show moonlighting as The Club. Genki Apocalypse, which bears little difference to the good Professor’s original Super Ethical Reality Climax, gets things off to a soaring start. A mascot is mauled by a shark. Another is shot in the head. Another still …

House of the Dead Overkill: Extended Cut Review

Chk. Chk. That’s the sound of  a ballooning ego. That’s the sound of hell’s fury wound to eleven. That’s the sound of the child inside of me crying “yeehaw!” Alternatively, that’s the sound of the Playstation Move Sharpshooter pump sliding one inch backward and then one inch forward.

Renegade Ops Review

Inferno is a high-flying graduate from the Dick Dastardly School of Villainy; a neer-do-well with no shortage of disreputable schemes up his sleeve, just a terminal problem when it comes to executing even one of them. Take the thundering war machine he cowers within, for example. It’s a colossal brute, armed to the teeth, but …

The Man With The Plan: Super Crate Box Review

Remember that scene in Pulp Fiction where JT and Sam Jackson find the briefcase in Bret’s apartment? Jackson’s all like “does Marcellus Wallace look like a bitch?” and Bret’s like “nah man” and then Jackson shoots him in the shoulder for saying “what” one too many times. He double dared him, if you recall. Click to read

Jelly Defense Review

The nicest thing you could say about Jelly Defense is it’s a game made by somebody who has played a hell of a lot of tower defence games and taken a thorough set of notes along the way. It’s a competent foray into a genre where competence alone is no longer enough. So come to …
