    “CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2″ (Game Review)

    If you plan to play CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2 without playing the previous two installments (LORDS OF SHADOW and MIRROR OF FATE, which was originally for the 3DS but has since been ported for XBL and PSN download), prepare yourself for some heavy confusion.  I have played those two, and even I found myself a bit lost at times during its 20 hour or so campaign, as characters tend to come back into the narrative out of nowhere and with minimal or no refresher as to who they are or what their significance was.  Luckily, you can skip over the story if you want and simply enjoy the well-constructed combat mechanic and various gameplay styles that send this series out on a relative high note.

    “CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW COLLECTION” (Game Review)

    Most long-running game series (SUPER MARIO, FINAL FANTASY, etc) avoid the potential hazards of a strong “mythology” by keeping it simple (Mario is good, things that he can stomp on are bad) or starting from scratch every time out (save for Chocobos and guys named Cid).  Other series, such as CASTLEVANIA, haven’t had long-term goals in mind when they were designed, but kept expanding on the initial storyline, resulting in a complicated “canon” that can scare off new fans, while also decreasing the appeal for older fans who’ve grown tired of trying to make sense of its narrative (RESIDENT EVIL is an even bigger offender of this).  Some folks at Konami agreed, which is why LORDS OF SHADOW is not only a completely standalone affair in terms of CASTLEVANIA lore, but also planned to be a definitive open and shut trilogy that will wrap up with LORDS OF SHADOW 2 in 2014.

    “DEAD ISLAND: RIPTIDE” (Video Game Review)

    Zombie games have exploded over the past few years. With such titles a LEFT 4 DEAD and  DEAD RISING leading the pack, the primarily PC platform company Techland has also jumped on-board the gore freight train with DEAD ISLAND and its current follow-up DEAD ISLAND: RIPTIDE. RIPTIDE follows the five main characters as they attempt to survive another zombie outbreak while scavenging for items on an infested tourist island. A blood-and-guts filled detour into an undead Hell, this first person, survival action game has received mixed reaction from both fans and critics, yet still manages to satisfy a hankering to stab and slash the walking dead.

    “THE WALKING DEAD BOARD GAME” (Review)

    THE WALKING DEAD has proved to not only be a media bonanza, but a merchandising boon as well. From t-shirts and toys to DVDs and, of course, comics, collectors have been shelling out hard-earned cash for a piece of zombie memorabilia. It’s perhaps thanks to the recent interest in all things undead that the series has spawned not one, but two WALKING DEAD survival board games. While ghoulish versions of classics like WALKING DEAD Monopoly and WALKING DEAD Risk are on the way, the former are more popular with the strategy gamers than the casual, Friday night crowd. The more popular of the two, THE WALKING DEAD board game based on the Image Comics title (versus the AMC show), finds the player forced to scrounge for food while attempting to survive the ever growing zombie-hordes. With the tag line “Can you walk among the dead?”, it definitely brings the point home as the board slowly fills up with flesh-eaters and dwindling hope of survival.

    BioGamer Girl: “DmC: DEVIL MAY CRY” (Video Game Review)

    by: Amanda Dyar on: 2013-01-14 22:38:17

    Despite a title that would be easily mistaken for a first
    release, DmC: DEVIL MAY CRY is actually the fifth in the acclaimed action
    series from Capcom. The new moniker has developer Ninja Theory, known for their
    work on HEAVENLY SWORD, under the hood, but the refreshing reboot may have been
    just what the doctor ordered.
