The Walking Dead: Episode 1 “A New Day” Review [Xbox 360/PC]

02 May
May 2, 2012

I’ll admit it, when I first heard Telltale Games was taking the first shot at making The Walking Dead game, as a fan, I was worried. I felt the game needed to be an adventure game, not just a point and click, like Telltale is known for. I’m happy to say that all my fears were put to rest when I finally got my Read more →

Fable Coin Golf Review

13 Jul
July 13, 2011

It’s no secret that I’m completely addicted to Fable games, even if Peter Molyneux made me break down and shed a tear after announcing the latest installment to the Fable series was going to be a Kinect title, but that’s not what I’m here to talk about. What I am here to talk about is an addicting game based on Fable called Fable Coin Golf.

The objective in Fable Coin Golf is to get your Hero Puck into the circle of light in as few moves as possible, sounds easy right? Well, it is… at first, but then it starts to throw in challenges to make the game more difficult, enemies that when hit without a power up, deduct 50 points from your score, or water that if you happen to slide into, ends your turn which costs you 100 points from your score. There are other obstacles to try and avoid or use to your advantage, like exploding barrels that send your puck flying around the level at high speeds, or heavy forests that can only be infiltrated by strategically sending you puck through a power up to cut down the trees first.

The game is pretty easy to get through and can be done in with 3-4 hours, unless you plan on getting all gold ratings on all levels, then you’re looking at quite a bit more. One of my favorite features in Fable Coin Golf is the ability to earn and transfer weapons and money to your Fable III game on Xbox 360. For each coin you grab, you’re given a 100 gold for Fable III. After completing certain levels, you also unlock special in game weapons for your character to use in Fable III. Pretty cool, eh?

Overall Fable Coin Golf is probably one of my favorite games available for Windows Phone 7. The graphics are great and the gameplay is addicting, there are plenty of levels and challenges to keep you occupied for hours, and the ability to earn bonuses for your Fable III game is just icing on the cake. I would definitely recommend giving Fable Coin Golf a chance there is a trial so download that first if you’re still on the fence.

Duke Nukem Forever Review

30 Jun
June 30, 2011

Duke Nukem Forever has received some of the most controversial reviews I think I’ve ever read, starting with the larger sites blasting it, and the smaller sites following, sheep-like, in their footsteps. It seemed more like a competition to see who could write the most scathing review, rather than anyone actually giving the game a fair chance. Was Duke Nukem Forever worth the wait? Let’s find out.

L.A. Noire Review

Let me start by getting this out of the way first thing, L.A. Noire was NOT developed by Rockstar, it was developed by Team Bondi and published by Rockstar. What does this mean? Well, if you’re expecting to go into L.A. Noire and play Grand Theft Auto Cops Edition, then you’re in for a huge disappointment. The only thing Grand Theft Auto about L.A. Noire Read more →

In Red Dead Redemption, you play as John Marston, outlaw turned rancher trying to live a normal life. Well, it probably would have been normal if other people didn’t have a different idea on how John should be living his life. You begin your journey in a small town called Armadillo, set out to find one of your old friends, Bill Williamson, to bring him to justice and satisfy the men who have taken your family as collateral to ensure you complete your task.
