Street Fighter 4: the O.G. fighter

by / 28/09/09 / [ 14 Comments ]

Platforms: PS3, XBOX 360, PC Street fighter—a truly iconic game that has cemented its place in gaming culture as well as pop culture. Personally, having never owned a copy or even played it extensively, the characters and the game’s unique face-paced gameplay still somehow is embedded in my subconscious. It will always have a special [...]

So I know it’s been a while since the last game review and I apologise to all our fans out there for the incompetence’s of my fellow gamers Shinigami and Hans moleman, as they were pwned by essays and lab experiments due to a lack of 1337 time management skillz. Fortunately I’m not such a [...]

br00tal alien slaughter fest I have somewhat of a love-hate relationship with survival-horror games. The idea of being immersed in a world where I’m some badass skux deluxe in a creepy fucked up world fucking up some horrifically mutated human alien creatures and be the heroic sounds like a killer good time.

I decided to finish this year’s game reviews section with a major rager of an article. In response to the seriousness of the last couple of weeks, I’ve decided to write an article which is serious yet contemplative, modern yet contemporary, amusing yet steeped in mythology. If you are expecting an extension of the WoW [...]

Its been a while but I’m (Ryback) back and with a vengeance. The NZ distributor for Nintendo Wii games going under was like a sniper shot to the shoulder. But like any good Seagal movie, it has not got me down but rather made me stronger. Now armed with a Ps3, bought with hard earned [...]

Games Reviews – Cooking Mama: Cook Off

by / 24/03/08 / No Comments

Genre: Party/Fun Console: Wii Cooking Mama: Cook Off , the squeal to Cooking Mama for Nintendo DS, was released for the Wii last year. Made in Japan, you definitely get a taste (hah!
