Comments Off on Fright Night Gaming: Resident Evil

Scariest game I’ve ever played?  No question, it’s the Resident Evil remake for the Gamecube by a landslide.  I never played a Resident Evil game until the remake so everything about the game was fresh to me.  I’m not really a graphics guy but I remember seeing comparison shots of the original to the remake… Read More »

Review: NCAA Football 11

Written by on August 9, 2010 in


I need to make a confession.  I’m a bigger fan of the football played on Saturdays in the fall then the Sunday variety.  Being a student athletic trainer in undergrad, I was able to experience, first hand, playing Alabama in Alabama in a torrential downpour and seeing 100,000+ fans cheering for Penn State against my… Read More »

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 takes the graphics of Street Fighter 4 and the gameplay of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and puts it into a high definition gumbo.  The gameplay is just as fast and furious as ever so fans should not be disappointed.  In the demo, there were 12 characters available.  I chose Morrigan and… Read More »

Wii Party, for the Nintendo Wii (obviously), is the spiritual successor to Mario Party.  Instead of using Mario and friends as characters, Wii Party incorporates Mii characters to be your in-game avatar (a choice I’m totally behind).  It features over 70 minigames that can be played in 13 different modes.  Before you run away screaming,… Read More »

Comments Off on Hands On Impressions: Ghost Trick

Ghost Trick, by Capcom, I played as the soul of Sissel, a guy who has just had an untimely demise.  As the demo opens, I see a lady to the left and a guy of questionable character to the right.  My unliving corpse is right in between them.  As the lady comes closer to her demise, the ghost is… Read More »

Review: Trauma Team

Written by on June 1, 2010 in


Let’s be honest, I think it’s safe to say that most people would crack under the pressure of having someone’s life in our hands.  Lot’s of people get squimish at the mere sight of blood.  Not everyone is cut out to be a doctor.  Trauma Team, for the Nintendo Wii, allows those people to fulfill… Read More »
