Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (Xbox 360)

Posted by chris On August - 29 - 2009

A few weeks ago, Lindsey and I rented Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe for our Xbox 360.  We generally like the vs. series of games (Marvel vs. Capcom, Capcom vs. SNK, etc), so we had high hopes.


We were severely disappointed.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Review

Posted by chris On July - 31 - 2009

We rented X-Men Origins: Wolverine over a week ago, but since I work, and we had a busy weekend, it’s taken me the full week to finally complete the game.  Now, on to the review!

Good Afternoon,

It is now 1:00 PM, and time to announce the fab winner of our Zelda contest.

Before that, I’d like to again give congrats to deaf omega and Ancientwolf13 who both won prizes in our Harry Potter giveaway.

OK, now to the good stuff.

Fable II (Partial Review)

Posted by chris On July - 25 - 2009

I enjoyed the first Fable a great deal when I played it.  I love fantasy RPGs, especially ones that look like they take place in the standard human “Once upon a time…” environment.  Fable fit that very well.  Then we got the Xbox 360, and with it came Fable II.

Corner Kick

Posted by chris On July - 25 - 2009

Earlier my two visiting friends were playing FIFA 2007 on my Playstation 2.  During a Portugal / Argentina match, a sequence of events occurred that resulted in seven, count them, seven corner kicks on the same attack.

It was fairly ridiculous.

They eventually got past it with no goal.

Xbox Live Gold Membership

Posted by chris On July - 25 - 2009

Over the last few days we finally received our renewal cards for our annual Xbox Live gold memberships.  My renewal card came with a new wired headset, a messenger pad, and Project Gotham Racing 4 (which we traded in at Target for Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga).  Lindsey’s renewal card was a 12+1, so she has 13 months of gold membership.  We’re looking forward to applying the renewals and not having to worry about it for a year.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Partial Review)

Posted by chris On July - 25 - 2009

On Wednesday evening, once Lindsey had finished her runthrough of Overlord II on our Xbox 360 (she should have a review up today), we headed to Blockbuster to trade it in for X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  I played the demo not so long ago, and fell in love with the graphics, the gameplay, and the way Wolverine’s abilities were depicted.  I started the game and was not disappointed.

Red Faction: Guerrilla (Xbox 360 Demo)

Posted by chris On July - 21 - 2009

After the disappointment of the Bionic Commando demo, I downloaded the Red Faction: Guerrilla demo.  I had heard good things about this game, so I thought I’d give it a shot.  Thankfully, this demo actually let me try the game properly.

Bionic Commando (Xbox 360 Demo)

Posted by chris On July - 21 - 2009

I loved this game as a kid.  Bionic Commando was, as they say, “the balls.”  That’s a good thing, I assure you.  Prince of Persia and Ninja Gaiden showed us that remakes, when done well, can provide an equally impressive experience now as their predecessors did decades ago.  With that in mind, I eagerly downloaded the Bionic Commando demo from the Xbox Live Marketplace and gave it a whirl.
