Well, some people would say that's where I belong anyway, but this time around you're invited to join Batman as he returns his favorite mass-murdering psychopath to his ha-ha-hacienda yet again. And hey, even I'm not crazy enough to turn down the Joker's invitation to join the party! Besides, never know if you might find out you have a natural immunity to Poison Ivy, right? Only way to find out is by getting yourself committed to Arkham Asylum.
So, after playing through both Dragon Age: Origins and Darksiders, the time has finally come for me to do my review. Having no way of ever hoping to top the Draconic largeness that is my compatriot's quite accurate review of Dragon Age and leaving me with no other alternative, outside of reviewing Phantasy Star 2 (a game I despise more than I can say in such a short space), my review will focus on Darksiders.
It's a damn good game, and it delivered on the fun it promised, but check out the review, and see it for yourself.
Man, I must be going soft. Either that or I really need a cute and cuddly girlfriend, and I'm not willing to place bets on which it is. In any event, here's a surprisingly entertaining series that I have a review for, known as Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, or if you want to know what that means, The Secret of Haruka Nogizaka. Truthfully a guilty pleasure, but a satisfying one, or at least it is at the point of this review. It's honestly showing signs of sliding into 2chan-Hell, but we'll see if it can keep from doing that as time goes on. Still, I'm certain you are more interested in what I have to say in there here and now, so head on over to the review, and see if it's something you'd like to watch yourself...or not.
This time around I've traded in my sword and shield for an M16A4 and a sniper rifle. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has landed and made a crater in the games market big enough to lose a M1A1 Abrams tank in. Come along with me as I join the rogues of Task Force 141 for a little modern mayhem and military mayhem.
In what will hopefully become a more common occurrence now that convention season is finally caught up with, I present a review that rather surprises me that I'd have done. For your viewing pleasure, I give you Avatar: The Last Airbender. Yes, a local production, very much anime inspired, but with a western flavor all its own, and quite literally one of the best things I've ever seen. So much is surprising about this series, that one can only marvel at it, not only that it overcame all the hurdles it must have just to get made, but that it did so, and excelled nearly beyond every standard of excellence set forth before it came about. Needless to say, I recommend it highly, but check out my review for more details.
Ok, honestly, I'd try to come up with some sort of semi-clever, maybe witty intro on to announce this review, but honestly, this one really just kinda took it out of me. I've got a review on Dragon Age: Origins up, and you're welcome to come take a look, as always. Oh, ah, you might want to bring a bag lunch… It's a bit of a doozy of a review…
Y'know, I've been noticing something strange lately out where I live… Just something weird, and I'm pretty sure if I could get a good look at it, it wouldn't look good. Hell, I think it's even fair to say that I've been seeing things, and not just in my head. Thought for sure there was something invisible in my bed last night, at least until my cat scrambled out from under the covers she'd been curled up under. I tell you, I just don't know who I should call… Anybody have any ideas?
What's a guy supposed to do when he's out on a backpacking trip with his cute little new girlfriend, who wants to go play hide and seek in a complex system of shadowy caves? Personally, I'd be running the other way, fully expecting the insane axe killer that always seems to stalk girls like that in remote locations to be coming after me any moment now, but Jason Flemming dives right in after her. Unfortunately for our little love birds, what's in those caves might just be worse than Jason… well, ok maybe not, but come spelunking with me while I check out Shadow Complex on the xBox Live Arcade and find out whether or not we're going to be quoting the horror movie rules while being horribly chopped and dismembered.
There are reasons to be afraid of the dark out there, even if you don't believe in critters under your bed and hiding in your closet. For myself, I took the doors off my closet so they couldn't hide there, and my mattress sits right on the floor so there's no room for them to fit. Unfortunately, that just takes care of the physical ones – what about the ghosts, the phantoms that wander about? This week it's time for a Requiem for the Phantom(s) out there. Dunno if we can put them to rest, but at the very least it's going to be a spooky ride.
