Oh, Kirby. For being a short guy with stubby arms he sure does make some quality games. His latest adventure, Kirby Mass Attack, ensures that the Nintendo DS goes into retirement right. I’ve gotten about halfway through the game and am already liking the adventure into Dreamland. This Kirby has a lot to offer that his other game’s don’t, so read on and find out…
If you’ve played games for years there’s inevitably a few that have slipped through the cracks. BloodRayne is one of those series for me, and I can safely say the extent of my BloodRayne knowledge is that the main character is a half-vampire, Uwe Boll makes horrible movies about her, and she’s appeared in Playboy. But with the newest title, BloodRayne: Betrayal, I was finally able to sink my teeth into the series.
I can really only think of about three arcade golf games: The literal arcade golf game Golden Tee, the Mario Golf series for the Nintendo 64 and GameCube, and Hot Shots Golf for the Playstation. There must be a reason so many games exist in this series. I take a look back at the first title in the series and look at what makes the game so great. Here’s a hint: It’s the golf.
So a game catches my eye and I pick it up. “10 different characters each with their own massive storyline and quest,” “10 huge multi-levled fighting arenas,” and even an “RPG character upgrade system depending on experience earned.” This game seems to have everything I want in a fighter. Well, I wasn’t quite thinking straight this day. Barbarian for the PS2 is a sluggish and non-thrilling 3D fighter that has great potential but falls well short of the finish line.
Leave it to the old PS2 to bring in a cartload of games this week. Well, also leave it to buy 2 get 2 free sales to bring in the games. And also the fact that all these games were well less than $10 each. A good variety of games, and even a Wii title, fill out this week’s Round-Up. Check them out.
DeathSpank returns and he’s bringing with him a mountain of weapons, a handful of orphans, and more of the same gameplay from the first two games. The Baconing is the third title in the DeathSpank series and offers up the same blend of action mixed with tongue-in-cheek humor. Leave it to DeathSpank to test the adage “the third time’s the charm.”’
Having the competitive edge in multiplayer tends to lead to victory. If you’re already the perfect sniper who knows the entire map by heart, or if you’re a one-man army who can destroy the entire opposition by yourself then you’ve already got the skills to be one of the elite players. But what about your controller? The vanilla Xbox 360 controller could be the one thing holding you back from true epicness in Call of Duty, Battlefield, or Halo: Reach. SCUF gaming has the definitive controller for all your shooting needs, and it doesn’t take a CoD master to use one.
