Review: The Baconing

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.”’

Review: SCUF DareDeVL Pro Xbox 360 Controller

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.

Review: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked

Tokyo is being attacked by monsters, and not Godzilla or the pocket variety. In Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, the most recent release from Atlus and the creators of the Persona series, you take on the role of a handful of Tokyo teenagers who get caught up in a battle of angels and demons with the fate of the world in the balance. Devil Survivor Overclocked is an enhanced port for the Nintendo 3DS of 2009’s DS exclusive Devil Survivor. Merely two years after the original game came out does the 3DS release have enough power to pull gamers back in or is this battle already lost? (more…)

Review: Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition

When Street Fighter III: New Generation was first released back in 1997 gamers saw it as a mixed bag. The updated fighting system, visual style, and new roster of combatants was seen by Street Fighter loyalists as a move away from what they liked about the series . Players who gave the game a shot saw that Third Strike was one of the best fighting games ever made. Capcom has given gamers another chance to fight for the future with Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition for the Xbox 360. HD graphics, online play, and a fantastic fighting system make Third Strike Online Edition a must-play for any fighting fan. (more…)

Sunday Round-Up: 9/04/11

It’s a slow week this time around, and thankfully one of the last slow weeks for video game releases. Only two games (well, 5 technically, and 1 even more technically) were acquired this week, and both of them downloadable. Don’t worry though, I’ve got an extra treat just for those loyal fans out there (so all 2 of you).

Initial Thoughts: The Baconing

DeathSpank is back. Again. For a second time. And in the all new title The Baconing. Quirky humor, action-RPG gameplay, and a distinctive art style help to make this downloadable series one worth playing. Here’s what I thought of the game’s first few hours.

Modern Classics: Intelligent Qube

Let’s take a look at a lesser known puzzle game for the PS1. Intelligent Qube for the PS1 is a puzzle game that has you taking out cubes (or qubes) on a grid of other cubes (or qubes) while avoiding falling off said cubes (or qubes). And it works quite well. I just suck at it. This week’s addition to the Modern Classics library is a jolly good game that will definitely make you feel dumb.

Review: No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise

No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise is like a Quentin Tarantino movie: gratuitous violence, scantily clad babes, and a plot focused around killing. And that’s not a bad thing. Heroes’ Paradise is an enhanced port of the original Wii game, and it comes with a flashy new HD visual update, as well as a few extra goodies to keep the assassination fest going.
