In their infinite wisdom, Activision has decided to celebrate their amazing Transformers: Fall of Cybertron game by releasing Transformers: Prime -The Game. The newest game is not based on the classic Transformers animated series. It, instead, finds inspiration from the updated series on the Hub television channel (now available on Netflix).

I’m a huge fan of Pokémon. I’ve played the majority of the handheld titles including some of the offbeat games like Pokémon Snap, Pokémon Pinball, and Pokémon Puzzle League. When I heard about Pokémon Conquest at first I was concerned that the series had jumped the shark, but upon seeing gameplay videos, and actually getting my hands on it I can say that… Read More »

Review: Professor Layton and the Last Specter

Written by on January 30, 2012 in


When it comes to puzzle games Nintendo’s little hand-held that could was no stranger.  With a glut of rehashed and repackaged puzzlers seemed to dominate the DS’s library over its lifetime.  In the midst of that, though, there was always the Professor Layton series.  Far from being just another collection of disjointed puzzle, Layton games… Read More »

Review: Puzzle Expedition

If games and movies have taught me anything it is that if you’re are going to be an archaeologist you’d best have children who can come searching for you once you inevitably go missing.  It happened to old Indy’s dad in years past and in Puzzle Expedition for the Nintendo DS the father of our… Read More »

Review: TouchMaster Connect

Written by on February 23, 2011 in


Every gaming console has a genre that becomes far too common. The Xbox has shooters in every shade of brown and the Playstation has many RPG’s of the Japanese variety.  For the Wii and DS, though, the common game type, the type that is fairly cheap and easy for developer’s to make, is the mini-game collection. … Read More »

Review: Sonic Colors

Written by on December 15, 2010 in


Sonic the Hedgehog has had a rough time of it since the inception of the 3-D era. A venerable gaming icon back in the day the speedy mammal has seen his blue fur tarnished by one sub-par game after another. One of the last refuges of quality for the Sonic series, though, has been on… Read More »
