Black Knight Sword Review

Nothing Inside the Armor

HIGH The first four levels have style for miles.

LOW The final level is boring, and the last boss is infuriating.

WTF The dry-humping piggybacker.

Lollipop Chainsaw Review

Rusted Sour

HIGH The soundtrack.

LOW Almost everything else.

WTF Ditto.

Street Fighter x Tekken, Lollipop Chainsaw, Mommy's Best and Snow White

I completed Lollipop Chainsaw the other night and my review is nearly complete. This was a fairly easy writeup for me since I didn't find much to praise... I'm certainly aware that Suda51 has his fans out there, but he's one of the most overrated creators in the games industry these days if you ask me, and this title just reinforces my opinion.

Broken Love: Adoration of games that didn't quite get it right, Part 3

Folklore received heavily mixed reviews upon its release back in 2007. Though it was praised by many for its dark atmosphere and emphasis on lore, it was hit hard by some for its incessant back-tracking, messy storytelling, and hit-or-miss Sixaxis controls. Though it was never deemed a complete failure (and surprisingly, got more than a couple 9/10's) there was something about it that doomed it for the bargain bin.

Shadows of the Damned Third Opinion

So... Dream Team, eh?

HIGH The Moor Pu Dekcuf.

LOW The "Big Boner" and chase sequences.

WTF Justine looks like a reject from the Metal Gear Solid series.

Shadows of the Damned Second Opinion

Magnifico, Indeed

HIGH Killing six demons with a single Hot Boner.

LOW The boring switch puzzles right before the final boss.

WTF If I had to pick one, it'd be the discovery that strawberries are made of ground up tongues. Really, the entire game is a giant WTF.

More Boner Jokes than You Can Shake a Dick At

HIGH The interplay between Garcia and Johnson is often quite hilarious. I loved these characters, despite their inherent cheesiness. Oh, and the Evil Dead homage level.

LOW Avoiding a recurring enemy who instantly kills you when she touches you. The game's controls make that far more challenging than it should be at certain points.

WTF Seriously, this whole game is one giant WTF?!? moment.

Killer7 Second Opinion

The cel-shaded look and trance-like audio form a strikingly edgy and elegant whole. Jason's description perfectly captures the bold minimalism that permeates the game, from the chapter start screens that require the player to guide a laser sight over a black silhouette of the level's antagonist and blast it into a spatter of red dots, to the "game over" screens that consist of stark renderings of the characters' agonized faces that would look right at home in a contemporary art gallery.

Killer7 Review

There is one thing that all would likely agree on: Capcom has produced a game that may seem like a throwback to halcyon days of yore, when adventurers pointed and clicked their way to the end of a game, but it drips modern style and gun action along with rivers of blood.
