With the launch of the A38s, Astro has clearly shown that they can rock our eardrums off even if we aren’t sitting in our living rooms.

Destiny Review
With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

PREVIEWS Skylanders Trap Team Preview
While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Absolutely superb graphics, Celestial brush is fun, unique, and amazing, well thought out story and characters, great script writing, combat is fun and intuitive, puzzles are easy yet rewarding, lots to do, huge open world, long story, urinating and defecating on enemies is awesome!

The Bad: No voices can make things seem a bit empty, having to backtrack often can get tedious, not really challenging, some humor isn't for the kiddies

The first thing everyone notices about Okami is it's unique and one-of-a-kind art style that has never been used in a game before. The art style is the main drive of Okami and feels so refreshing and is just so easy on the eyes. The graphics also push the PS2 to the limits and the world in Okami is HUGE and vast and there is so much to learn and do. The second thing people will notice is the wonderful Celestial Brush game mechanic. When you hit R1 the screen turns into a canvas and you can paint different strokes to activate certain techniques you learn along your adventure. This mechanic is very intuitive and fun and doesn't get old at all. There are just so many fine details about Okami that you could never really say them unless you played the game yourself. The story in Okami is very original and interesting and you actually don't get lost in it at all. The characters in this game are memorable and you'll end up caring for most of them. The combat in the game is great as well. You can learn new combos and use different weapons and also use your brush during combat. The puzzles in this game aren't mind bending which is good and keeps the pace flowing and everything is just so well thought out and blended together. The only gripes really is that there's no voices and the noise they use for the voices instead is very annoying. Having to backtrack a lot can sometimes feel tedious especially when you want to move onto a new area. I also have to mention the infamous urinating and defecating skill you can learn to get extra loot from enemies! This is very funny and fun at the same time. Another note is this game has a lot of mature humor in it and isn't really for the youngins. There are just so many things that are great about Okami it would take too long to just say it all. The is about 40-45 hours so you don't have to worry about this beautiful game feeling too short. You HAVE to own or play this game all the way through and there's no excuse for it! I'll tell you this though it's a lot better the Twilight Princess that everyone says this game rips off. Get Okami NOW and you WILL not regret it one tiny bit.
