New Review Posted on Games Abyss

2 Mar

My second review for Games Abyss went live today. What’s cool about this one is that it was posted on the same day the game is being released, which makes me seem mad professional. Click here to read my take on the HD remake of cult classic Beyond Good & Evil, an overlooked gem from [...]

Alex’s Halloween Countdown, Day 7

31 Oct

Horror-Themed Videogames Alan Wake- The Writer Alan Wake is without a doubt one of my Top 10 games of the year. It has one of the best stories ever written for a game, and innovative gameplay that helps it stand apart from other survival horror titles. The game’s rated T for Teen, which made me [...]

Alex’s Most Anticipated Games- Part II

8 Aug

The list continues… Q4 2010 October 5 Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (Xbox 360) I know very little about this action/adventure title, but it’s an original IP and that automatically gives it a one-up over most games being released in Q4 2010.

Alex’s Best of 2009, Day One- Videogames

15 Dec

As you all know, I love lists. So you can imagine how much I love this time of year, when every critic, blogger, or dude with an internet connection capable of typing makes their “Best Of” lists for the past year. The holidays may be stressful, stupid and corporatized, but end of year lists are [...]

DECAPITATION!!!!!! -Brütal Legend Review

25 Oct

XBOX 360, Rated M for Mature. In my Top 100 Favorite Videogame List I included several games that prolific designer Tim Schafer was involved in, including two he was project lead on: Grim Fandango and Psychonauts. So I’m obviously a fan. Schafer is the master of adventure games. He knows that some of the most [...]
