Cybertronian planet cyberforming machines have erupted under the city, killing thousands, and causing untold destruction. In its wake fly in a plague of Insecticons, but not the ones who have pledged their loyalty to Megatron. A team of Autobots; Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Sideswipe, Grimlock, and Optimus Prime rush towards the scene, working to evacuate what remains of the humans and stop whatever it is the Decepticons are doing...only to find Megatron and his army as confused as they are. Though whatever it is, Megatron wants it, and if he wants it, it's a damn site sure that those who fight for freedom of all sentient species had do their utmost to make sure he doesn't get it. Can either side survive...the Devastation?
While he didn't participate in the Crusades himself, Dante Alighieri the poet was a member of the Guelph cavalry, in the years before he penned the three parts of one of the greatest pieces of literature in the history of the world, the Divine Comedy. This epic consisted of three parts, the Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. They described a journey taken by Dante, guided by the Roman poet Virgil, and later his unrequited love Beatrice, as he became lost and misled at the midpoint of his life. He descended through hell, Virgil teaching him about each of the nine rings and some of the inhabitants within, then ascended through purgatory's nine levels and eventually into paradise's nine levels. The poems were unusual in that while they did tell a story, story telling was not their primary purpose. Instead, they served much more as a sort of roadmap to the journey, crafting through word and prose a vision that to this day defines hell, and to a lesser extent purgatory and heaven. That roadmap is the one that Visceral Games decided to illuminate with their own interpretation of Dante's Inferno.
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.
I'm taking a look at possibly the worst case ever of mistaken identity this time, as I review Infinite Undiscovery. What's infinite about it? Well, for one thing it clocks in as one of my longest reviews. What's undiscovered? C'mon, you can see this one coming, go read the review!
You can talk about it too, if you like. CLOSED
Hey, what do you know, I finally got a chance to do it. Well, needless to say folks, today's (first?) update is on Halo 3, and only two months after it was released this time! The Master Chief needs no introduction, so I'll just let you find your way over to the review without further ado.
As long as I'm on a site updating spree, I thought that I'd add a new review to the mix, my first xBox 360 take. And for that event, I've settled on a Gears of War review that cuts right to the gory innards. Hope you folks are ready for a mauling the likes of which Ash would look at and say... "Groovy." Grab your Torque Bow, check your shotgun's ammo load, and rev up that Lancer's chainsaw bayonet... Welcome back to the Army, soldier.
