MOST POPULAR FEATURESTop 50 Pokémon of All Time
Can you believe there are now six generations of Pokémon? Six!! That's a crazy amount of different creatures to collect. But which are the cream of the crop? Don't worry, Magikarp isn't actually one of them.
Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me. One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems. Conversations erupting around...
Blake's Pick - Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2– Yes, true believers, Avengers Assemble! and Flame On!, because It's Clobberin' Time and I'm The Best There Is At What I Do, and You Won't Like Me When I'm Angry. By The Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth and Odin's Beard, With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility, so play Ultimate Alliance 2 responsibly. 'Nuff Said. ~Blake
Nick's Pick - Muramasa: The Demon Blade– A great Wii game is one that makes me forget that I own a PS3 and an Xbox 360. A great Wii game is one that has awe-inspiring graphics which belie the technical limitations of the system. A great Wii game is one whose simplicity is in its details, whose vision cannot be denied. A great Wii game is Muramasa: The Demon Blade. ~Nick
Duke's Pick - LocoRoco 2– Nick here. Since Duke is in the middle of a Mexican jungle, finding his way to a mole sauce, and he completely trusts me (*evil smile*) to speak for him, I believe that this is what he has to say about LocoRoco 2:
Jesse's Pick - Blazblue: Calamity Trigger– BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger kicked me right in my cel-shaded testicles. In a year filled with more intense 2D fighting action than a deadly tic-tac-toe tournament, BlazBlue stands out from its flat-faced peers. Its inviting cartoon exterior disguises a fiendishly complex and rewarding combat system and (*gasp*) story—even if it does take someone like Charles Minard to make sense of the combo charts and a tag team of Carl Jung and Stephen Hawking to make sense of the brilliantly convoluted plot. ~Jesse
Eduardo's Pick - Panzer General: Allied Assault– Panzer General: Allied Assault brought out the general in me this year in the form of a very addicting card game for XBLA. Even though it's set in one of the most clichéd settings in the past few years, it makes the most of it. Units are varied and interesting, and both sides - Axis and Allies - have their pros and cons. The campaign can also take props for being fairly lengthy for a downloadable game, taking place in various famous historical moments in WW2, like the Normandy Beach landing, the Battle of the Bulge, and even Operation Marketgarden. Worth a look if you are interested in strategy games! ~Eduardo
