Max Payne 3 First Trailer Hits, with Game Release Set for March

The debut trailer for Max Payne 3 is finally here. After several months on end for quite some time already, Rockstar Games has been incredibly lax on information pertaining to number three in Max Payne's escapade list, and now the former cop-turned private security detail for affluent Brazilian folk who end up under the cross-hairs of Sao Paulo gangbangers, forcing Max to clean up the mess and set things right, even if it means facing down the … [Read more...]

Gears of War 3 Review

As I sat down and put my Gears of War 3 disc into my XBox 360 I couldn't help but reminisce about the past.  Nearly five years ago the original Gears of War launched, and to say it was a hit would be an understatement.  Some would argue that Gears of War even played a big role in turning the tide of the next generation war.  The series has without a doubt become one of the most critically acclaimed series to hit the industry.  As I stare at the … [Read more...]

Frozen Synapse Review

I hate it when things don’t go according to plan. My feelings towards Frozen Synapse are similar to that of when you plan to hang out with someone and one hour before they say, “Nah, can’t do it today.” Playing Frozen Synapse gives you that same feeling except with guns and neon colors. … [Read more...]

Tropico 4 Review

It’s not exactly a hard thing to understand why so-called ‘god’ games are popular.  Players get a nice seat up in the clouds and the opportunity to manage the ant nest that is civilisation, of one form or another, below them. … [Read more...]
