Review: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom

During the “Perils of summer” Steam Sale, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom was listed for $2.49, which was a low enough price for me to purchase it. Aside from the few screenshots that I saw, the only thing I knew was that it was a puzzle platformer where you could manipulate time.

Review: The Secret Armory of General Knoxx

The idea of downloadable content is still being experimented with because more often than not, consumers don’t feel like they’re receiving enough content for their money. The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is the third DLC for Borderlands, and I think Gearbox Software understands what the consumer wants -- a healthy amount of game content for around $10.

Final Thoughts: Demon's Souls

After 11 hours of level grinding, killing enemies and constantly dying, I concluded that Demon’s Souls is extremely difficult, so difficult that it only manages to create frustration. The most important thing in Demon’s Souls is collecting souls, which can be obtained through killing enemies and finding other soldiers souls. The souls you collect are used for upgrading equipment, leveling up, and buying other materials, so it is essential to collect as many souls as possible.

Lagging Behind: BioShock 2

"Lagging Behind" is going to be my final thoughts on a game that I haven't got around to playing. For the game to qualify for this segment, It has to have been available to the public for at least 6 months.

BioShock’s story ended with a dead end, and the only direction it could go was back -- which was why BioShock 2 didn’t seem like a good idea. You play as a prototype Big Daddy and frankly, it doesn’t feel like you are one at all. Compared to the main character Jack in BioShock 1, you don’t feel tougher. When you hear those slow and heavy footsteps, you still shake in your boots. Your boots that happen to be part of a Big Daddy suit, which doesn’t mean shit because you still get your ass handed to you.

Mario Galaxy 2 Review

I wasn’t going to buy Mario Galaxy 2 because of the recent influx of good games, but after seeing the 98 Metacritic average and an ad in the Best Buy flyer for a Mario keychain with the purchase of the game, how could I wait. Mario Galaxy 1 was refreshing with its approach to platforming, utilizing the concept of gravity, and the gravitational pull of planets. Though the difficulty was a bit on the easy side, it was definitely addressed along with other things, which makes Mario Galaxy 2 a must own.
