REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla (PS4) Review
Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Download May 2nd, 2013

Posted on Thursday, May 2 @ 17:48:15 Eastern by

Easily the biggest downloadable release in weeks is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, the self-contained alternate universe Far Cry 3 where the island is actually the 1980s and 90s and the people on it are all cyborgs. Ninja cyborgs. Ninja cyborg clans too. If you're looking for something fun on the 3DS, be sure to check out the eShop sale while you're at it. If you're an Android user, check out our Android pick of the week down below.

Nintendo eShop

Only one release is set for this week on Xbox Live Arcade and that's the one with the cyborg ninjas I was talking about earlier. I guess Microsoft has an excuse with all the work they're doing to reveal the Next Xbox.
PlayStation Network

If you need more on the newly added software for PlayStation platforms, PSLS's weekly PSN update is my source for The Download and you don't need to be a fanboy to visit. Steam

Android Pick of the Week: Iron Man 3

Despite hanging out with Sonic the Hedgehog and the Sega publishing crew for his past two movies, Iron Man 3's interactive version is landing on mobile platforms from Game Loft. You might know Game Loft from their numerous rip-offs of popular, established brands, but every once in a while, that talent comes in handy. Iron Man 3, for example, bites lots of features from the popular auto-runner genre represented on iPhones and Androids by the likes of Temple Run and Jetpack Joyride.

The graphics and music are awesome and the frame rate holds up pretty well. There's a bunch of unlockable suits and bosses to blast, but I can't figure out how to stay quick on the draw with my laser. Mostly I'm just pumped for the new movie. It might seem stupid but at the very least you'll be able to kill the 10-15 minutes of ads they now play in theaters before every movie.
