i have something to say…

Portal 2

The original Portal was a complete surprise to the gaming market when it was released in 2007. Presented in a manner similar to developer Valve’s Half-Life series, Portal was a genre-bending first-person experience that was lauded for its creativity and originality.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is kind of like the movie Ghost. Except you’re not Patrick Swayze. And you don’t have Whoopi Goldberg as your psychic sidekick. Oh, and there’s no sexually-charged pottery scene.

Sin and Punishment: Star Successor

Every so often, a game comes along that kicks your ass on normal, and you have to pick the dreaded “easy” choice and suck in your pride, because playing the first stage of a game and dying right away can only be fun for so long. Sin and Punishment is not one of those games. Sin and Punishment kicks your ass on “normal,” and then when you switch to “easy,”….

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit

2009′s release of Need For Speed: Shift was a kind of reinvention of the series. Shift focused on legal, closed course racing and had a physics system that leaned towards a more simulation type experience as opposed to an arcade racer feel. It was met with a fair amount of good press and critical acclaim, receiving higher scores than any of the previous three NFS releases.

Fallout: New Vegas

Although Fallout: New Vegas might be a sequel taking place in the same universe as its predecessor, those of you who have not played Fallout III have nothing to worry about when it comes to understanding the game’s narrative. Simply put, the bomb has dropped on the United States, and the survivors of the tragedy are left to pick up the pieces.

9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors

You wake up on a ship and have no recollection of how you got there. That’s not what’s troubling you the most, though, because the ship is sinking and your room is filling up with water. As luck would have it, the door that leads to your salvation is locked.

God Hand

God Hand is a game that does not care what you think of it. It is the sort of game you might see strolling down the road in clown makeup and a feathered boa, ignoring the stares of passersby.

Rune Factory

I picked up a copy of Rune Factory for the DS because it’s a “fantasy Harvest Moon” game. This intrigued me since the Harvest Moon games can be fun and addicting. I don’t know what weirdo thought people would enjoy a video game where you take care of a farm and find a suitable dame, but I am thankful for that weirdo because they are so much fun to play.

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare

Unfortunately, in today’s entertainment world, many video game developers will cut corners to save a buck and overprice things like downloadable content to maximize their company’s profits. As unlikely as it sounds, Rockstar’s recent downloadable content for Red Dead Redemption, titled Undead Nightmare, has restored my faith in humanity.

PlayStation Network’s Welcome Back Program Has Solid Choices

Anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock has seen the latest hacker attacks in the news. Sony was hit hard on more than one occasion knocking its PlayStation Network service offline for over a month. The hackers stole potentially sensitive information from thousands of PSN users in the process as well.
