Coming Soon...

I had a whack of posts at the beginning of this month, and clearly that number has dwindled...but it has all been for good reason. The last while has seen the release of a disgusting number of high quality games, and I've been busy playing them when not busy. These include the recently released epics Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as well as an extremely cool retro-styled 2D platformer called La-Mulana.

All of these games are...long and involved! Even La-Mulana is taking me forever to complete, and I can't remember how long it's been since it's taken me well over 20 hours to complete a sidescroller so it's certainly a breath of fresh air.

Very soon, I'll be posting reviews of Skyward Sword and La-Mulana, likely in that order since I've completed Skyward Sword already.

Check back soon for an update!

In Defense: Wizorb

Having heard of this game recently on GiantBomb, and also hearing that it was created by the same guys who worked on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, I knew it was likely something I would eventually check out. There was also the fact that it's a retro-styled Arkanoid or Breakout game...and that really got me interested. I've always liked games like that, particularly Arkanoid, so I decided to give Wizorb a shot. You can find it on the XBox Live Marketplace for 240 MS points, or $3.00 in real-world terms (it's also now downloadable on PC!)...and if you're into this kind of video game, it also happens to be more than worth every damn cent.

Experience Points: Dark Souls, Batman: Arkham City, Doom II, Crysis

Hey all! Another Experience Points entry here with my latest gaming endeavours...and trust me, there have been quite a lot of them recently. Quite a few long games, some delving into classics, and some extreme frustration at the hands of one in particular. I'm gonna review that one next though, so it gets saved up for another time! For now though, allow me to convey some quick thoughts on the latest games I've been plowing through!

World Ten: Creeeeeeeeeeeepy Games (Post-Hallowe'en Edition!)

Technically, by the time I have this entry posted Hallowe'en will have come and gone. It's been a busy and stressful month and unfortunately I haven't spent as much time writing blog entries as I would have liked...but I plan on starting November with a World Ten which I have long been promising, and what better list to do around All Hallow's Eve than one that's about creepy shit? This is my top ten list of games that can creep you out, and with a blend of old and new material from the land of video gaming, there's a decent amount of variety in here for you to sift through and hopefully some games that may have freaked you out as well!
