Space Invaders Infinity Gene

The “epic retro-futuristic hit”, as they put it, is really all that. The unlocking mechanism keeps unveiling more of the game as you play, and it only ever gets more awesome-er. Freezing cool and easily worth your 800 space bucks.

What I’ve been playing this summer (part II)

Alan Wake (Xbox 360) Alan Wake finally came out and for me, it was well worth the wait. Top of the line storytelling all through, with unparalleled pacing and cinematic conventions. Great setting, great writing, great characters and good gameplay.

E3 2010

I went to my first Electronic Entertainment Expo this year. Los Angeles was loud, slow and relatively cold, with only the rioting Lakers fans generating some excitement outside of the show. I don’t much care for the city. We stayed

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days

Here’s a sequel I did not expect to see. I really liked the original and I’ve been meaning to go back to it. It’s great to see that Eidos and Io are ready to go at it again, despite the

Toy Soldiers

World War I has not been used too much in videogames and tower defence games have been seen too much of lately. Combining the two with a cool concept of it all being just toys in a vintage mechanical arcade

Armored Core For Answer

It is a well-known fact (at least by my wife) that I dig giant robots. Armored Core has always been a series tailored for me, but as it should happen, I’ve only played the PlayStation (one) original before this latest
