Diablo III [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Diablo III is what I would personally consider a solid ‘meets expectations’. It does exactly what’s expected of it, which was, to be fair, a lot. However, the whole thing feels a little ‘safe’ and doesn’t push the franchise as far as Blizzard managed to go with their other game series, in specific StarCraft II.  

The Pros: 

+The game scales well, meaning almost anyone can play it.

+The inclusion of Nightmare, Hell, Inferno and the Hardcore Mode mean there’s plenty of options for replay.

+Each character is unique and viable. Everyone has opportunity to develop a character to their play style that’s fun and personalized.

+The multiplayer experience is seamless, jumping between games to meet up with friends is not only easy, but elemental. 

The Cons: 

-The story of the game is pretty short at around 6 hours.

-A lot of the game’s features are cribbed from either previous iterations of the franchise, or Blizzards library of other games.

-Everything feels a little ‘safe’ no boundaries felt like they were pushed or even tested.

Let’s be honest, the ‘dungeon crawler’ genre has become kind of over-saturated at this point. For years now, 16 of them in fact, people have been doing what they can to capture a little bit of the magic that Blizzard unleashed on the world with the original Diablo games. Now, 11 years after the release of the franchise’s last bit of content (Lords of Destruction) we finally have a true successor to the game that defined ‘dungeon crawler’ and the hype surrounding the game has been surreal. Does it, however, meet with the lofty expectations that we’d set for the game ourselves?

Brooklyn to Babylon: Shinobi Ninja Attacks iPhone Review

Overall Feeling: 

An innovative band iPhone app that includes a great arcade game and interesting extras.

The Pros: 

Awesome arcade beat-em-up action. Music and Movie unlockables. Download the EP for free once you beat the game. Innovative "Live Show" features.

The Cons: 

3.99 regular price will likely be too pricey for players only interested in the game, which is a little short. 8 Point touch control pad would have been better as a Joystick, similar to Simpsons Arcade.

Recently we were asked to review a new iPhone game for the band Shinobi Ninja out of New York City. For those of you who don’t know them (and I’ll be honest I didn’t prior to them emailing me) Shinobi Ninja is an independent rock/rap group which features lead singers DA and Baby Girl, bassist Jonny on the Rocks, drummer Terminator Dave, guitarist Maniac Mike, and DJ Axis Powers. Shinobi Ninja is an interesting fusion of rock, alternative and hip-hop party music.

Overall Feeling: 

A fantastic game for your iPhone. Great visuals and an innovative control syem on 3GS phones makes this a must try. If you likes Myst you will definitely want to check this out.

The Pros: 

Lush island environment. Great story with fantastic stylish visuals. Challenging puzzles. Innovative compass/GPS control system. A monkey.

The Cons: 

Large install file size (704 Mb). While voice acting is nice, it's rather weak. Music leaves something to be desired.

After a mishap that caused the death of my iPhone 3G I went without a smart phone for about a month while I waited a 3Gs to replace the previous model. Since getting it back I’ve made a point to make sure to spend more time with my iPhone seeing as our time apart lead me to be thankful for the various and wondrous features that the phone has to offer.
