Game On: ‘Happy Home Design’ lacks challenge, intrigue

Game On: ‘Happy Home Design’ lacks challenge, intrigue

One of my favorite Gamecube games was “Animal Crossing.” It’s cute design, fun gameplay, and characters made it a blast to play. One of the best parts was collecting things and designing your house, so why wouldn’t you want that with “Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer?” The thing that made “Animal Crossing” so special was […]

Game On: ‘Soma’ is terrifyingly entertaining game perfect for the Halloween season

It’s almost Halloween and that’s a great time to play some scary games. “Soma” is a first person horror game set in an underwater scientific research facility. The gameplay is straight forward and not complicated, there isn’t really any frills and not a ton of action. What you will find is an intriguing story and […]

Game On: “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” could be in the running for best game

I’ve been playing the NES Metal Gear series since the beginning. In the ’80s Metal Gear 1 and 2 were top down view action games. Then in the ’90s on the PS1 market was the release of one of the best story and action games of all time, Metal Gear Solid. Now on the new […]

Game On: Disney Infinity 3.0 features the all-star cast of ‘Star Wars’

I never thought I would get sucked into the “Toys-to-Life” craze of games like “Skylanders” or “Disney Infinity” but when I heard the new “Disney Infinity 3.0” was going to introduce “Star Wars” it caught my attention and made me incredibly excited, and made my inner hoarder very scared. “Disney Infinity” isn’t just a line […]

Game On: ‘Mega Man Legacy Collection’ is a remake of the classics

It’s been many years since the release of a “Mega Man” game and most people have given up hope for a new game in classic series. “Mega Man Legacy Collection” is not a new game but it is a remastered collection of “Mega Man” 1 through 6 with updated graphics and is a loving tribute […]

Game On: Football season is here and ‘Madden NFL 2016’ puts you on the virtual field

It’s that time of year again, football season. You know what that means? It’s time for Madden season with the release of “Madden NFL 16.” Madden is one of the biggest video game releases of the year even if you aren’t a big gamer. It’s typically the standard for football games and it attracts sports […]

Game On: ‘Gears of War’ gets overhauled and you’ll get a little extra

Released in 2006, one of my favorite series on the Xbox 360 was “Gears of War.” It defined what a quality third person shooter was and was copied by hundreds of games over the console generation. The new generation of consoles have been riddled with remakes and remasters of older games. Now Gears gets the […]

Game On: ‘Galek-Z’ goes rouge in space shoot-‘up-style

The new generation of consoles has made way for some great indie games, and the Space Shoot-em up genre is having a bit of a Renaissance. “Galek-Z” takes full advantage of the new consoles with a really sophisticated physics, detailed Anime inspired graphics, and impressive A.I.. “Galek-Z” is still like a 16-bit shooter that you […]

Game On: Tembo is one badass

Game On: Tembo is one badass

It’s been a while since SEGA put out a quality platforming game. “Sonic” used to be king of SEGA platforming games but the quality and popularity have waned in recent years. Even though it has a silly name “Tembo the Badass Elephant” is one of the best SEGA platformers to come out in recent years. […]

Game On: Rapture captures attention through storytelling

Game On: Rapture captures attention through storytelling

One of the genres that has picked up steam over the last couple of years is narrative driven adventure games. They aren’t fast paced but they are interesting because of the stories they tell and the compelling environments. I have been looking forward to “Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture” since it’s announcement at E3 a […]
