Silent Scope is a memorable, unique arcade shooter.

Not so much on the consoles. Here is my newest video review

The Recurring Bosscast: 011 – BioVania

Episode 011 LogoThis week’s Bosscast topic is Bioshock and all things related.

Somehow the topic of Bioshock got Jett, Mat, and myself discussing video game movies, remembering anything worthwhile about Bioshock 2, and the awesome that will never happen in the Castlevania-Bioshock crossover. We can only hope.

Also this week Mat and I diverge on our mutual dislike of Castlevania: Mirror of Fate, and Jett explains why Darkstalkers Resurrection is a competent 2D fighting collection.

Sunday Roundup: 3/17/13

Two weeks in a row of just one game. I wouldn’t way I’m getting used to it, but I would say I’m starting to get an itch for an epic game week soon.

Rayman Rush CoverRayman Rush
PS1
Release Date: March 26, 2002
Purchased at: Game Changers (Michigan City, IN – $3)

So here’s something I didn’t know: Rayman Rush is a port of sorts of Rayman Arena, which is itself a multiplayer focused racing and battle game. Rayman Rush is a racing game that, if I understand correctly, takes stages from Arena and makes them available on the PS1. Not only is this a super late game on the PS1, it’s a stripped down port of a not-so-great PS2 game! What happened to you, Rayman? You used to be cool… I guess you’ve become pretty cool again though, so just don’t let it happen again!

Gaming News: 3/16/13

Left 4 Dead 2 Resident Evil 6 Crossover EllisThe oddest piece of news this weeks reminds me that April Fool’s is right around the corner. Though I’m sure it’s not a prank just yet, a Resident Evil 6 and Left 4 Dead 2 crossover is in the works!

Also this week, Nintendo gets sued and Apollo Justice will be in the next Ace Attorney game. Coincidence that the game will be on the 3DS, the very console Nintendo was sued over? I think it’s a conspiracy… Read the rest of this entry »

Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate

Castlevania Mirror of Fate CoverThe Castlevania series has enjoyed years of success on handheld systems. The previous three games in the series on the DS were arguably some of the best in the entire series. However, a reboot of the franchise occurred on the consoles in 2010 with the release of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. The new game retained the gothic setting and whip-based action, but replaced much of the mythos with a fresh take on the story and took a more hack-n-slash, God of War-like approach. While this may have reinvigorated the franchise on the consoles, it has absolutely no place on the handhelds. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate is a victim of itself, trying to blend the new style of Lords of Shadow with the “Metroidvania” gameplay the DS and GBA games have perfected, but instead falls short in almost every category.

Review: Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan

Etrian Odyssey IV CoverI recently had the opportunity to review a game very similar to Etrian Odyssey IV on the 3DS, Unchained Blades, itself a port from the PSP. I reference this past review because Etrian Odyssey IV does everything right that Unchained Blades did wrong. This fourth installment in the Atlus dungeon crawling RPG series is the best entry the entire genre has seen in a long time, and if we’re lucky it will start a steady influx of quality titles.
