Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles: More Zombie Please

There’s nothing more enjoyable than shooting zombies full of holes. It’s even more enjoyable when said zombies manage to scare the piss out of you. Take both of those elements, slap together a storyline that everyone is familiar with and you’ve got yourself Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles for the Wii. The lightgun-like …

Assassin’s Creed 2 Review: “It’s-A-Me, Mario!”

Every year a handful of titles end up being in the “must-have” or “highly anticipated” category. Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed 2 happens to fall under the latter umbrella for 2009. Is it a “must-have” for this year? It depends on who you ask to be quite honest. What Ubisoft did with the original Assassin’s Creed was …

New Super Mario Bros. Wii Review: Welcome Back, Old Friend

A sense of nostalgia washes over you when playing through the first level of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. It’s so familiar and different at the same time that it’s hard to pinpoint the last time you’ve felt this way. For most of us it was 1990 when Super Mario Bros. 3 was released in North America. For me that particular title was …

New Moon: Twilight Shows More Skin, Adds Zombies!

130 minutes. That’s the running time of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.” And at minute 125, audiences of swooning tweens around the world will let out an audible gasp before erupting into cheers. At least that’s what happened late Wednesday on New York’s Upper West Side, when the very first “New Moon” audience lost its …

Palm Pixi Review: Not Bad, Far From Great

It’s been a good year for Palm. There’s no doubt about that. Given the fact that everyone and anyone thought Palm would be dead in the water after the lackluster year they had in 2008. The majority of the media present at Palm’s CES press conference this year walked away amazed by what they had seen. I tend to hate on everything …

Left 4 Dead 2 Review

When Left 4 Dead 2 was announced earlier this year, I didn’t want to like it. Why? Because I loved the first game so much.

And I wasn’t the only one: When the game was announced at the annual E3 video game conference in June, it already had its fair share of skeptics. In fact, calling some of these people skeptics would be the nice …

T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold 9700 Review

Every few months RIM manages to bring to market a new BlackBerry that remedies minor flaws to the OS from previous iterations with updated hardware that’s both gorgeous and functional. The Bold 9700 is no different, but the latest flagship model still isn’t what it should be while managing to be the best BlackBerry to come out of …

DJ Hero Review

Is this the hero we’ve been waiting for?

Anyone that knows me will tell you that I can no longer stomach the once groundbreaking franchise that is Guitar Hero. After World Tour, I became disenchanted with the whole idea that these types of games were fun to play. Maybe I just couldn’t find enough people to play with me; I don’t …

Post-Potter Thoughts

NOTE: This entry contains no plot details from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but may still be slightly spoiler-ish.

Well, I’m finished with Deathly Hallows. I turned the last page at 8:45 Saturday night (I took two four-hour breaks for sleep), and I’m still thinking about it and trying to absorb everything. I loved it. I …
