Previews & Impressions

Pokemon Online Trading Card Game [PAX East 2011]

Day one for us at PAX East, and what are we to do? Play video games, of course (what a tough life huh?)! Well, we first started at the Pokémon and I know what you're thinking.  Well I can only assume what you're thinking, and my assumption is that you are wondering why we went to visit a booth whose game (Black &White) came out this week.  Well Pokémon actually has another online card game coming out called Pokémon Online Trading Card Game.

The verdict? It's actually surprisingly fun.

GDC 2011: The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3DS Preview

Zelda Ocarina of Time has to be, or is, one of the greatest games of all time. It also happens to be one of my personal favorites. I mean I remember times when I would be playing N64 and my mother shouted at me to get off the damn video games and all I had to say was," Mom I'm playing Zelda!" Suddenly it became ok. Its understanding mothers like this who know which games are alright to play because they know which ones are worth letting their kids interact with for just a wee bit longer (Thanks Mom).

GDC 2011: Halcyon

The Indie game booth is one of the largest ones at GDC this year and there are a few games being shown that really stand out. For me, one of the stand-out games was Halcyon, a puzzle game for the iPad. Mobile gaming is not my usual preference, but seeing this game really made me want to play it and I'm really glad that I did.

Yakuza: Of the End [Preview]

There are a lot of things that I like in the world, two of which are zombies and the Japanese culture.  Yes, it’s a bit stereotypical for someone who likes video games to adore the land of the rising sun, but I just dig Japan as a whole in all its stylish and often zany glory.

GDC 2011: Dead Island Preview

Dead Island is a game that has been in development for almost a decade now, and with the recent release of the Dead Island trailer it has created quite a bit of hype.  But does the game live up to the hype that the trailer created? Well I can answer that question for you, and the answer is yes!
