Over the past several years, Zen Studios have been making a name for themselves with their series of Zen Pinball and Pinball FX titles. The PS3 has seen two of their titles already, the original Zen Pinball and Marvel Pinball, but they were both stand-alone titles that did not integrate with each other. That wasn’t […]
It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than a decade since Diablo II came out for the PC. I have been playing that game for years now, and it has been an almost permanent fixture on my hard drive since its release. When the announcement came through that Diablo III was in the works, […]
Namco’s Soul franchise has developed quite a history for itself since its 1996 debut with SoulEdge. It has been an underrated PlayStation title (Soul Blade), a smash hit on the Dreamcast launch (SoulCalibur), a highly-divisive multiplatform release (SoulCalibur II), and much more.

Last year, the much delayed and hotly anticipated Gran Turismo 5 was finally released for the Playstation 3.

Over the years the Need For Speed franchise has taken many turns. Some games have been better than others.
Forza Motorsport 4 is easily one of my most anticipated games for this year. I am a huge fan of what Turn 10 has done with the series thus far, and it seems like for the fourth installment they’re looking to make the best possible racing game in the genre. It’s a lofty goal, but […]
With its predecessor turning out to be one of the best music games in the genre, Rock Band 3 has some very big expectations to live up to. Is it able to deliver, or does it fall short? What Is It? Rock Band 3 is the first real sequel to the 2008 hit Rock Band […]
Occasionally you want to play a game to help you relax. Chime Super Deluxe is just the sort of game you’ll want to have on hand for those occasions. It’s not an immersive military shooter, it doesn’t reproduce the feeling of driving at one hundred eighty miles per hour. What it does do is provide […]
