Game Review – Marvel Vs. Capcom 3

Crossover games are great. And the crazier the better. What would a fight be like between a monkey and a shark? Or a disco samurai and an electric spetznaz? TV shows like “greatest warrior” only work on statistics and “what ifs” and “maybes” but the beauty of the video game industry is we get to …

Game Review: Game Dev Story (iPhone)

When people talk about games on the iPhone, one category that has never worked for me is simulation games. The concept involves lots of information on screen at once and a heavy level of attention to detail.

Game Review: Spiderman Shattered Dimensions (Xbox360 & PS3)

The superhero game is a funny specimen indeed. Mostly these games are crap attempts at raping a quick buck from the public with a tie-in related to some blockbuster holiday movie. Rarely are they done well with a few shining moments of awesome like Batman : Arkham Asylum, Spider-Man 2, X-Men Origins : Wolverine and …
