REVIEWS Titan Souls Review
Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

StarDrive 2 Review
A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Oh boy, a new Tales Of game? Gosh, I hope it will be a high-fantasy anime-styled JRPG... that would be so unique.

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...

Biggest Disappointment of 2011

Posted on Friday, December 23 @ 01:14:09 Eastern by


L.A. Noire


Platform(s): Xbox 360, PC, PS3

Publisher: Rockstar Games

Developer: Team Bondi

Maybe it's the track record Rockstar Games has or the seven years it took to develop L.A. Noire, but something ended up souring my experience. Maybe it was the pacing or the stiff cardboard bodies that seemed disconnected from the facial motion capture. Maybe it was the lifeless world or the insanity of protagonist Cole Phelps. Maybe it was the horrible ending or the fact that the gameplay grew incredibly stale after the first playthrough. Maybe it was all of these things.

While the crime caper should be played if only for the brief novelty of it all, the narrative is mismanaged and poorly organized. It might not seem apparent at first, it can be blatantly obvious the second time through. As transporting as the game might be, anything else worthy of praise has been stained by the nasty working environment and the shuttering of Team Bondi.

Runners Up:
  • Duke Nukem Forever
  • Dragon Age II
  • Homefront
  • RAGE
