For The Glory Of Helghan "In and out within a month, they said. Their weapons no match for our military might. Predicted moderate to low resistance. Enemy morale at an all-time low. They couldn't have been more wrong. Welcome to Helghan."

The ongoing battle between the ISA (Interplanetary Strategic Alliance) and the Helghast rages on. This time, the war is brought to the planet...

The Vault Hunter's Guide To The Galaxy Before I go into my review, I found this bit of information quite interesting and I thought I'd share it. I've never realized how popular the word "Pandora" really is. According to Wikipedia, the word Pandora has been used in everything from people, to places, even to several different forms of media. In 2009, both Borderlands and Avatar were set on two v...


Before The Blog Episode # 2 : I've Got The Need, The Need For A Need For Speed Realistic Racing Sim! (Need For Speed : Shift)

Before The Blog Episode # 2 : I've Got The Need, The Need For A Need For Speed Realistic Racing Sim! (Need For Speed : Shift) Shift is Need For Speed's take on a serious racing simulator. The usual arcadey feel of the series has been replaced by a style that mostly resembles Gran Turismo. However, it's not a complete "shift" into realistic racing; there is still a hint of arcade in there.

The majority of Need For Speed titles I've played have all had storylines, especially in...


The Reverse Butterface

Backlog PS3, Crysis
The Reverse Butterface Crysis is a ridiculously gorgeous First-Person Shooter from 2007, finally ported to the PlayStation Network in 2011. It looks undeniably good for being 7 years old. The tropical landscapes within the first few levels are stunning. Crysis features some of the most realistic water effects I've ever seen in a video game.

The Nanosuit is awesome. It allowed...

A Brighter Future, And A Better Life Saints Row 2 is a 3rd person "GTA-styled-over-the-top" open world game that takes place in the fictional city of Stilwater. In the game, your created character is the leader of the Third Street Saints gang, who was previously thought to have been killed in a yacht explosion at the end of the previous game five years earlier. The character (before created)...

Let's Go For A Swim Hydrophobia Prophecy is a PlayStation Move and PlayStation Nav optional game (yes, it was made with the motion controls in mind, but you can play it with a normal Dualshock 3 if you wish to do so) on the PSN. It was a free PlayStation Plus game a few years back. In the game, you play as Kate, a systems engineer who lives on a huge ship called the Queen Of...

It's Castle Season! Another great beat 'em up game. I swear this wasn't planned....it was right above Scott Pilgrim in my PSN titles folder! In Castle Crashers, you play as one of four characters (more are unlocked as you go along) as you travel from one stage to the next (Mario 3 and Super Mario World style) beating up baddies and rescuing your castle's princesses.

I Left Mine In San Francisco As the caption under this minis title states, "A family of monsters gets lost and confused in a strange forest." The monsters live in a giant tree with a heart in the middle of it, called the Heart Tree. One day the monsters are playing around and collecting hearts, and the Heart Tree floats away. Now the monsters must go on a journey to find their home....

I'm In Lesbians With This Game In order to date Ramona Flowers, Scott Pilgrim has to defeat her 7 evil exes. This is a retro-styled 2D beat 'em up game based on the comic and movie, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

I will say right off the bat that this game is a lot harder than it should be (even on easy mode), and I noticed this at least two or three levels in. That was, of course, un...

I Did It All For The Sookie Flying Hamster tells the story of two hamsters named Newton and Sookie. The two hamsters find a golden seed, but before they can enjoy it, a giant eagle snatches up Sookie and flies off with her. It's up to Newton to save the day! In typical Super Mario Bros. fashion, each level ends with a boss fight, Newton running over to save Sookie, but she's always...

Simply Irresistable In Resistance 3, you play as Joseph Capelli, a corporal in the US Military. After killing the infected Nathan Hale, Joseph was dishorably discharged. It's now in the late 1950's. The Americans had lost the war years ago, with 90% of the population wiped out. There are only a few groups of people left in the resistance against the Chimera. Capelli sets off...

Beautifully Boring The title speaks for itself, so I'm not going to waste my time explaining things that don't matter. I'm just going to lay out parts of the story and some other things as best as I can.

Picking up right where AC Revelations left off, Desmond and crew locate the temple noted by The First Civilization which holds the key to saving the world from the solar...

Maybe She's Born With It...Maybe It's Aveline! It's obvious almost instantly that Aveline de Grandpré does not have the same strength character-wise as Altaïr or Ezio. Not enough of the story is focused on her background. She's already an assassin at the start of the game, but how did it happen? It seems that she is the only assassin in New Orleans. I missed the interaction with Desmond, but Aveline i...

The End Of Two Eras Assassin's Creed Revelations begins with Desmond stuck in a coma, which means he is also stuck in limbo via the Animus. To wake up from the coma, he has to find a synch nexus, which is a memory that links both Altaïr and Ezio to himself. Desmond is not alone on Animus Island, however. Subject 16 is also there.

After Rome, Ezio makes the long travel to M...

Before The Blog Episode # 1 : Dat First Game Doe! (Jak and Daxter HD Collection) Welcome to my new segment called "Before The Blog". Here I will simply write about the games I've played through in my backlog before I started the "Backlog Blog". I thought I'd post these with a little summary of each one while I work through my current backlog titles. I may also be branching out to Blu-Rays and theatrically released films as well, just...

When In Rome... Picking up right where Assassin's Creed II left off, I'm happy to say that Assassin's Creed Brotherhood continues Ezio's story. Ezio's decision to leave Rodrigo Borgia alive at the end of Assassin's Creed II becomes quickly regrettable after Monteriggioni is attacked by Rodrigo's son Cesare, killing Uncle Mario, destroying Monteriggioni, and losing the Ap...

Requiescat In Pace Assassin's Creed II is the game Assassin's Creed tried to be, but failed in just about every aspect. This game is the complete opposite of how I felt about the original Assassin's Creed. While I couldn't wait for the original game to be over, I didn't want AC II to end.

Continuing where Assassin's Creed left off, you still play as Desmond Miles outside...

Not A Great First Impression The Assassin's Creed series is one that I really had no interest in until Assassin's Creed III came around. By then, the series had rapidly progressed into a yearly title. The longer I waited to get into this series, the more difficult it would be. And then Assassin's Creed IV : Black Flag was revealed. I was fully invested. I mean, who wouldn't want to b...
