Hitman Absolution

November 11, 2013 – 1:12 pm |

Despite what the boisterous, awkward, and hypersexualized trailers have presented, Absolution is no action-focused adventure. In fact, for a professional assassin, IO Interactive’s anti-hero is surprisingly clunky with a gun. Aiming is a little too …

Batman Arkham City

November 9, 2013 – 1:12 pm |

What is a bigger deal is the GamePad integration. This ranges from the usual “DS port” stuff like a persistent map screen and a touch menu interface to upgrade Batman’s abilities, both of which are …

New Super Mario Bros U

November 7, 2013 – 1:09 pm |

New Super Mario Bros. promised to return Mario and friends to their 2D roots. While the series has produced three solid platformers thus far, it’s never really recaptured the old spark. The unbridled chaos of …

LittleBigPlanet Karting – Making tracks

October 30, 2013 – 7:57 am |

When I say that LittleBigPlanet Karting borrows gameplay from the Mario Kart series, I don’t necessarily mean it in a derogatory way. Honestly, most (all?) kart racers crib pretty heavily from the Nintendo franchise that …

World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria

October 28, 2013 – 7:56 am |

At the end of the last expansion, Cataclysm, Blizzard did need a new plan. Long ago, even before the game’s first Burning Crusade expansion, word had leaked out that the development team had ideas for …

Pid – Ups and downs

October 26, 2013 – 7:51 am |

The broken glass brings forth the butler. He’s a robot domestic in the French style, with a haughty air and pencil-thin mustache, and not a stuffy old British Jeeves. I’d probably eye him warily even …

Primal Carnage

October 24, 2013 – 7:55 am |

Having the foresight to predict what should be the “next big thing,” developer Lukewarm Media has delivered its first game, Primal Carnage, under Reverb Publishing. Though there are a few meteor-sized holes in the game’s …
