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.

Initial Thoughts: No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise

If the Wii isn’t HD, then can we consider the Playstation Move the HD Wii? It would appear to be, at least to some degree, as a few past Wii-exclusive games are making the hop over to the HD PS3. The first game being No More Heroes, which gets an updated port on the PS3 entitled Heroes Paradise. I’ve got my hands on the game and got some play time in already, but how does it stack up so far compared to the original Wii title? Read on and find out.

Review: Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions

This 3DS mini-retrospective of the legendary Pac-Man and Galaga franchises contains the original arcade games that started it all, the reboots from the Xbox 360, and two all-new games exclusive to the 3DS. Even with the repackaging of four great titles and two brand new ones, Dimensions is a hard recommendation given the burden of its full price tag.
