Video Review: Sonic the Fighters

For as awful and button-mashy as Sonic the Fighters is, I still really want to see a fully fleshed out sequel!

Laters,

Now Playing: Fable Heroes

The Fable series of RPGs meets the cute world of… puppets, in Fable Heroes for the Xbox 360. Capturing the creative world Albion and translating it to a simple form of gameplay that even my nephew can understand, Fable Heroes is a side scrolling beat-em up with an RPG twist. I’ve spent several hours with the game and managed to get through everything the title has to offer, and now I’m here to pass that information on to you.

Review: Anomaly: Warzone Earth

Tower defense games are nothing new, with new iterations on the classic formula seemingly coming out every year (see Dungeon Defenders and Orcs Must Die! & it’s newly announced sequel). How often has a game in the genre done something as radical as Anomaly: Warzone Earth? The folks at 11 bit studios said screw placing towers, we’re going to let you play as the creep and destroy the towers! Anomaly: Warzone Earth can be described as reverse tower defense (or even tower attack), but no matter what moniker it’s given the game is downright fun.

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?

Review: The Simpsons Arcade Game

Konami has kept the retro-train chugging first with the release of the classic brawler X-Men Arcade, and now more recently with The Simpsons Arcade Game. Initially released in 1991, The Simpsons Arcade Game allows up to four players to take control of Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa in a quest to recover Maggie from the clutches of (who else) Mr. Burns. This is the first port of the arcade version to be released on home consoles. After more than 20 years in arcade obscurity, The Simpsons Arcade Game is finally here to let gamers relive one of the best games of the past.

Sunday Roundup: 2/5/2012

Not a killer week in new games, but a week nonetheless.

I picked up one new game and one game as a download, but both games are going to be review titles for Machinima. Let’s get on with it, shall we?

Gameplay Vault: All Zombies Must Die!

Zombies have been all the rage lately, haven’t they? I don’t think I even need to go into detail about all the movies, games, and books they’ve been a part of. Because of this overflow of undead, it might be easy to pass by All Zombies Must Die! for the Xbox 360 (or perhaps you might mistakenly think it’s the similarly named Orcs Must Die!). Either way, I’ve been able to put some time into this action-RPG/dual-stick shooting hybrid, and I’ve been pleased with it thus far. I have some videos for you all to enjoy so you can get a feel for the zombies yourself.
