Review: Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age Inquisition Art

It’s been over three years since we last explored Ferelden and the world of Thedas, and gamers have been yearning for a game to cleanse their palate of Dragon Age II. With the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition, BioWare has made up for all the wrongdoings of its predecessor by creating a real, breathing world on the brink of chaos, as well as a complex and satisfying gameplay experience.

This Week in Gaming News: 7/14/12 – 7/20/12

Wishing there was an alternative title with the NFL license to combat with Madden? Well keep wishing.

Also this week, Brain Fargo makes good on his Kickstarter promises by releasing the first tempting screenshot of Wasteland 2, the remake of Double Dragon packs on the neon lights, and the rebooting of sorts of the Rock Band series is shaping up to be another must-have part game.

This Week in Gaming News: 6/30/12 – 7/6/12

Two big stories concerning the transition to digital gaming and cloud gaming. Not only that, but two big characters (well, only one is actually “big”) are added to the roster of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

And here’s a quick hit for you all: That crazily titled Final Fantasy rhythm game Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy has been receiving very positive reviews. Go buy it!

Review: Grand Slam Tennis 2

With successful franchises in just about every other sport, EA has decided to step on Centre Court and see if they can serve up an ace in the form of Grand Slam Tennis 2. In a complete 180 from the first title on the Wii, Grand Slam Tennis 2 has HD graphics, every grand slam venue to play on, solid online modes, and tennis’ current stars as well as the legends of the past as playable characters. With plenty of other tennis games out there, does this one have what it takes to become the world number one in tennis video games?

Now Playing: Grand Slam Tennis 2

I know I’m not the only one who enjoys a game of tennis, video or otherwise, but amongst my friends I’m pretty sure no one else likes tennis. For this reason or that, I find games like Grand Slam Tennis 2 to be wholly and intriguingly enthralling. Grand Slam Tennis 2 is EA’s newest addition to the tennis sim, and after Top Spin 4 it’s got big shoes to fill in terms of quality, depth, and playability. With John McEnroe’s gorgeous 80’s mug on the front cover, things are starting out fine already. Tennis, anyone?

Quick Hits: iPhone Gaming Madness

This past week (and as my phone currently told me today is still going on) EA had a massive sale on all their iPhone video games. Most games were $.99 and my girlfriend game me a $10 iTunes gift card, so picking up a few was an easy choice. I’ve played through a few and wanted to touch on each lightly, mayhaps to entice one of you to get one yourself.

Now Playing: The Sims Social (Part 2!)

I blogged a few weeks ago about how I couldn’t believe I was playing a Facebook game, and as fate, or luck, or whatever the hell it is would have it, I am still playing the game some time later. And, well, I actually like the game. A good deal. I’ve improved upon just about everything in in the game since I last wrote about it, and have some new pics and details to share with you all.

Now that’s more like it.

A great haul this week, spanning from the PS1, PS2, and the Xbox 360.

I love it when I get a great deal on a lot of games.

Now Playing: The Sims Social

I honestly can’t believe I am writing about this, yet alone that I’m playing the game. But alas, I have finally succumbed to the onslaught of Facebook games and played The Sims Social. I have only dabbled in the Sims series outside of the awesomeness that is Sim City (and subsequently Sim City 2000), so playing The Sims Social is my first deep venture into the series. And into Facebook gaming as well. After spending a little over a week the game, as per my girlfriend’s request, I can safely say I’m addicted. For better or for worse. If you’ve got a Facebook account, time to kill, and a penchant for tinkering with a person’s life, you should be addicted too!
