Review- TNA Impact: Cross the Line for the Nintendo DS

Developer: Double Tap Released: July 1, 2010 Genre: Fighting/Sports Platform: NDS I am not a fan of professional wrestling. Because I would like to assume that you people have some semblance of respect for me, I’ll just go ahead and pretend that you already knew that.

Review- Secret Files: Tunguska for the Nintendo DS

Developer: Fusionsphere Systems/Animation Arts Released: June 30th, 2010 Genre: Adventure/Puzzle Platform : NDS “Secret Files: Tunguska” has done what I have hoped a game would do for a long time; it has renewed my faith in the industry’s ability to make a halfway decent point-and-click adventure game.

Secret Files: Tunguska Out Now for the DS and Wii

I have played several indie games, whether as a part of the Humble Indie Bundle (which I payed $15.00 for, thank you very much) or as standalone games downloaded off of XboxLive; I am proud to say that I support indie developers. I am also aware...

A United States President’s Guide to the Xbox360

In a speech on Sunday made to over 1000 college graduates, President Obama had this to say: “You’re coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don’t always rank that high on the truth meter.  And with iPods and iPads, and Xboxes and PlayStations — none of which I know how to wo...

Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver – DS – Review

Under normal circumstances, game sequels that are essentially re-skinned versions of their predecessor are game for massive amounts of hate, mockery, and reviling; today I am here to tell you that, if done right, following a formula can in fact be done! And no game series has shown us the right way to rehash a previous entries and call it something new like Pokemon has. Ever since the Second Gener...
