Lara, What Have They Done To You?

Lara, What Have They Done to You?

With E3 2012 underway (and now winding down), my inbox has been flooded with trailers, demos, gameplay, interviews, and announcements from the convention.  It’s actually been pretty lackluster this year in term of thing getting me excited (aside from Bieber-Leon’s silky European-model hair in Resident Evil 6), but one game is standing out for me.  […]

LEGO® Lord of the Rings Game Teaser Trailer

Yesterday a teaser trailer for the LEGO® Lord of the Rings game hit the internet! As with LEGO Batman 2, the game includes voice acting, BUT, it’s all straight ripped from the movie. You can see they attempt to add humor during the moment with the Balrog, but the dialog has me worried that those […]

Playable Perplexities: Shepard

I’ve been on a bit of a lull in gaming lately with the completion of the Mass Effect Trilogy being the last thing to leave an impact on me.  Now, I’d have done a review long ago… but I haven’t actually played the games myself (I know, don’t tell me, I’m working on it!). What […]

They come in every shade of nerd – from farm/castle/city simulators, to crazy side scrolling adventures and everything in between. For the most part, […]

Playable Perplexities: Oldies

Playable Perplexities: Oldies

So, I’ve been hiding in my house this past month…playing year old video games.  I have tons of new ones I could be playing, but something compelled me to finally go through the backlog – old games that everyone was telling me to play forever.  I in fact, after about 3 days, dropped the new […]
