  • Duke-1
    Duke Nukem Forever is a game twelve years in the making, and the market for campy action games is as strong as ever. So how will the Duke fare when our reviewer Stow buzz cuts his hair and dives in?

  • faxion-story

    PvP, multi-classing, and a completely irreverent treatment of an underserviced theme: the afterlife. But does Faxion Online treat players to a slice of gaming heaven or a grindy hell?

  • Brink header

    Splash Damage struck gold back in 2003 with Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.  It was a super fast paced teamplay shooter that emphasized objectives over frags, deception over headlong charges, and had a goddamn sweet looking flamethrower.   With the game both being pretty damn awesome AND free to download and play, it created quite a following. 

    The follow-up, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars was a commercial attempt at a sequel to the formula.  It retained the critically acclaimed gameplay, while mixing things up with radically different sides and aircraft.   While the reception from editors and reviewers was positive, the community felt otherwise and it never caught on to the same degree.


    In Brink, you spend your time fighting the enemy, not the environment.  The advanced SMART system enables sweet movement and scaling of objects with little to no input on your part.

    Now Splash Damage’s newest foray into team shooters  is back and sporting more of the same.  You’ve got classes, you’ve got objectives, and you’ve got a team between you and said objectives that you need to mow down.  This time around we’ve got an original setting focusing around good guys and bad guys, with a passable story and challenge maps to test your mettle when your friends aren’t around.

    Does a fresh coat of paint help restore the luster of Splash Damage’s wonderful formula?  Or does this title send you to the brink of madness instead?

  • Portal 2 - Story

    No one saw Portal coming.  Well, let’s rephrase that.  We saw Portal coming, but no one saw the amazing following and success that came shortly thereafter.  No one saw the ending sequence, the incredibly dry humor, or the wonderful feeling of an epiphany from solving a puzzle you’ve been stuck on for half an hour coming.  What was once thought of as an extra pack-in to the Orange Box became a reason to purchase the Orange Box, and Portal fever was in full session.

    Now, everyone saw Portal 2 coming.

    divine souls
    My fighter in all his conformist glory.
    Divine Souls is an action-packed free-to-play (F2P) game developed by GamePrix and published by Outspark. Taking place in a hybrid fantasy/sci-fi setting, the player takes on the role of a divine soul seeking to protect the Divine Matter from cursed souls, but don’t let the backstory get in the way of what’s really important – kicking ass! The game promises non-stop action through its console-style combat system and it delivers, but there are some underlying issues that keep the game from breaking out.

  • homefront_deathmatch
    I’ve been waiting eagerly for Homefront, the first person shooter developed by Kaos Studios and published by THQ, to come out for several reasons. First, the storyline written by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Conan the Barbarian, The Wind and the Lion, Jeremiah Johnson, the Rome tv series, and Red Dawn) is incredibly intriguing. It is the year 2027 and over the last 13 years, America declined in power while North Korea rose in strength and forcibly annexed pretty much the entire Pacific Rim. The Greater Korean Republic has attacked the United States and now occupies this once-proud country. The gamer plays as a pivotal member of the Resistance, who is fighting to expel the commie horde from the good ol’ USA.

  • darkspore_review-ss01

    Darkspore is a sci-fi themed dungeon crawler at heart, with a fairly spectacular collection and itemization system, a novel backstory, and layers upon layers of tactical challenge.
