Review – Black Ops 2 Uprising DLC

It seems like only last week that Revolution was released, and everyone was in the throes of hammering out challenges for the Peacekeeper, diving through toppled, gravity-confused skyscrapers in Die Rise, and hunting the sole human in Turned mode, apart from wiping out the entire population of Earth on Hydro, Downhill, Grind, and Mirage. As it turns out, that was right at the very end of February, and with a nice 2-month time period for gamers to pay up, blast some more people/zombies, and eventually go somewhere else, Activision and Treyarch have given us the second of four DLC releases for Black Ops 2. Now, I hear you asking “How does Uprising compare to Revolution?” and to answer that particular question, I offer one response – keep reading!

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

This could be one of the more challenging reviews I have written to date.  GRFS is a long awaited game for the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon series –  it has been eleven years since the first game, and five years since Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 – so essentially it should appeal to veterans of the game series or be a refreshing change for newcomers.  This is about tactical warfare, and as far as current shooters are concerned, Ghost Recon Future Soldier is doing things a bit different.

Reviewed Kinect Star Wars, I Have

Roughly two years ago at E3, we finally got to see what Project Natal was all about; thus being the Kinect for Xbox 360.  We saw what Your Shape Fitness Evolved, Dance Central and Kinect Sports had in store for us.  We also got a little teaser for Kinect Star Wars, which had a lot of tongues wagging – especially mine.  With a vague release date, and even originally set for October 2011 that got delayed just a little more, the wait finally ended on April 5, 2012.  Kinect Star Wars is here and was well worth the wait.  As far as expectations of ‘will this game give me a lightsabre and can I use the force in a Star Wars environment?’ – Absolutely!

Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 (Vita)

I love me some fighting games! Yes-sir-ree~ I’ll admit I haven’t played any of the Marvel vs. Capcom games or the like before – that is, before Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for Vita is pretty much the same as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, but it has the added handiness of being able to be played on the go on a hand-held. Read more…

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Creating a brand new action RPG is no easy task, but 38 Studios have stepped up to the plate with Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning. No one can deny the calibre of the competition out there so they definitely had their work cut out for them, and for a first crack at it they have done pretty well. Read more…

Bejeweled 3!

Like many people out there, I have an addiction to Bejeweled.  I must have been living under some kind of rock, because I had no idea that Bejeweled 3 was in the works for console, or even that it was available to download from Xbox LIVE Arcade this very minute!  After testing it out, I thought I would share some things for others who may also be living under a similar rock.
