Game Review-Blade Kitten

September 23, 2010
I like cats. They’re cute, soft and you never know when they might attack you. The same is true for the protagonist of Blade Kitten, a sort of cat-girl named Kit Ballard that’s the last of her species. Too bad, as this bounty hunter is completely adorable, sporting pink hair, a pink tail, and a sharp blade that floats behind her like an adoring fan. Read the rest of this entry ?

Japan Game Release: GalGun

September 20, 2010

There’s still two days left at the Tokyo Game Show, but I doubt I’ll find a more entertaining title than GalGun, an on-rails shooter set in a Japanese high school. Before you cry Columbine, relax: There are no bullets and nobody dies. In GalGun for Xbox 360, your character hits schoolgirls with “pheromone shots.” Read the rest of this entry ?

Silent Hill 8 Details Released

June 17, 2010

An eighth Silent Hill game will be released next year on PS3 and Xbox 360, Konami has announced. This is the same game that was revealed at E3. Czech developer Vatra Games will do the honors. There’s no major brand-renovation being done. Instead, Konami wants to “stay true to the franchise’s roots” and deliver, as Shinji Hirano (publisher boss) put it, “A next generation horror game that the fans truly deserve”.

Silent Hill 8 will be third-person, then, and naturally involve a new and super spooky story. That revolves around prisoner Murphy Pendleton, who’s stranded the town of Silent Hill when his convict transport vehicle crashes. Pendleton will need to solve tricky puzzles to progress through this “dark” and “thought-provoking” tale, beating off monsters with wooden chairs and glass bottles. We’re promised various side-quests, too.

New Zelda Title Revealed: Skyward Sword

June 15, 2010
As promised earlier this year, Nintendo’s E3 press conference brought the first solid details on the next installment in the Legend of Zelda franchise, subtitled Skyward Sword. The brief trailer for the game shown during the Nintendo E3 press conference featured far more vivid visuals than those of Twilight Princess, but with a very similar UI. Read the rest of this entry ?

Game Review- Resident Evil 5

April 7, 2010

Resident Evil 5 has trumped all RE games combined. You see, I’ve been a huge fan of the series since I first acquired a copy of Resident Evil 2. When I first played that game, it completely blew me away. This was a game that was gruesome, intensely scary, was a blast to play, and had a great dual story line to boot. Since that fateful encounter with Leon and Claire ten years ago, I’ve been a faithful fan of the canonical entries of the series. As big a fan I was of games like Resident Evil Zero and the remake of the original on the GameCube, I feared that my precious survival horror series was getting stale. Read the rest of this entry ?

Game Review- Battlefield: Bad Company 2

March 29, 2010

Being the sequel to 2008’s Battlefield: Bad Company, BC2 does everything you’d expect from a second offering; everything that worked in the original was expanded upon, and things that needed improvement got reworked. The overall result is a polished, engaging experience that is easily the best Battlefield game ever created. The campaign starts off in familiar Battlefield territory: World War II. The Japanese have developed a secret weapon that the Americans are desperate to get their hands on. However, your squad fails in procuring the dangerous super weapon, and its detonation marks the end of your adventure in the ‘40s. Read the rest of this entry ?
