Review – Super Meat Boy (XBLA/PC)

Way back in the time region of something, two Flash game developers (Edmund McMillen and Jonathan McEntee) gave away a lot of their own blood clots, sweat drops and tear mops to create a wildly successful flash game for Newgrounds. This flash game was called Meat Boy, a god-send of a flash game involving an undigested cube of meat sprinting around in order to save his law-defying girlfriend, Bandage Girl, from an evil foetus in a jar. Now, with enough money from Newgrounds to advance with their ideas and please the stalkers once more, the dynamic coding duo have now took Meat Boy in to new, untold heights. Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce you to (yet) another one of those Newgrounds-turned-big-time software titles, that decides to go about its business with a different style. A style, coloured red. Read more of this post

Review: Red Dead Redemption

Rockstar Games. Any gamer will automatically think GTA at this point. But they do make other games (gasp). One of their most recent examples is the Spike VGA’s Game of the Year, Red Dead Redemption.

Review: The Force Unleashed II: Endor DLC Pack

I know, I know, I haven’t reviewed the full game yet. I’d imagine this is gonna turn into Alan Wake, as in, I’ll review all of the DLCs but not the full game. Anyway, as the title suggests, this is a review of the recently released Endor DLC Pack for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. Also, be warned, there WILL be some spoilers ahead, so don’t read if you don’t wish to know the bad ending of the story. Hope you all enjoy it!

The new Xbox 360: Is it worth making your wallet Slim?

During E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) Microsoft announced the new Xbox 360 S (yes; S, they don’t officially call it the “Slim”) 250GB console, promising an array of new and improved features. Released on the 16th July 2010, the new console has now been in users hands for the last 4 months. The main question is; is it really worth £200 (its RRP is £199.99, but I don’t want to get pedantic at all) and downloading all your DLC and installing all your games again?

Review: Alan Wake: The Writer (DLC)

Hi guys, Tom W here with a review of the second Alan Wake DLC, The Writer. If you cast your minds back to August, the launch of TGD to be precise, you may remember I reviewed the first of the DLC’s, titled The Signal. That wasn’t such a great DLC, and I secretly feared The Writer wouldn’t be good either. Thankfully, I was wrong. Read more of this post

Review: Halo: Reach

Cast your gaming mind RIIIIIGHT back to the springin’ Summer of ’09. The very first date of June, to be precise. The Xbox 360’s E3 Press Conference was purging on swimmingly, with hit titles like Forza Motorsport 3 and Shadow Complex already leaving the company’s head held high. Around halfway through the historic event (which, bar the original 2001 conference, was the most popular show for Microsoft in the company’s history), famed Halo producers Bungie took to the stage, amidst much hype. The fans were clearly aware of Halo 3: ODST’s inevitable showing, which did come to be. Right on suit, however, came something that wasn’t expected.
