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.

Medal of Honor Beta Impressions

It seems that a lot of developers envy the success of the Call of Duty franchise, so they end up producing games that are very similar and have their own flavor to it. The developer DICE (the guys behind the Battlefield series) is making the Medal of Honor multiplayer which seems much directed towards the Call of Duty audience.

Now Playing: Shadow Complex

During the week of E3, Shadow Complex along with other XBLA titles was half off their original price, which was more than enough of a reason to spend some Microsoft points. Shadow Complex was unanimously described as an excellent game for its value, so I was interested in playing through it to see if I would agree with that statement.

Why Should I Buy Kinect?

When I first saw Kinect at last year’s E3, I decided to at least give it a chance since it was taking the controller free approach to gaming. People speculated that while using your existing Xbox controllers, additional movements like grenade throwing could happen by moving your arm towards the screen.

Nintendo E3 2010 Predictions

What I have learned from Nintendo’s Press Conferences is to never laugh at whatever ridiculous looking piece of plastic they decide to bring on the stage. When Nintendo showed the Vitality Sensor last summer, everyone was thinking “Why the hell would I want to monitor my heart rate”, however I wouldn’t lose faith in Nintendo just yet.

What I don’t expect to see is any new 3D Mario or Metroid game since they have either been released or are going to release very soon. What I am hoping for is the 3DS to blow my mind, and immediately make me start saving to purchase a new handheld. Unlike its competitors, Nintendo has always done an excellent job of keep their surprises secrets, which is why Nintendo’s Press Conferences turn out to be the most shocking of the three.
