Mortal Kombat (9)
Spear-heading its way to your collection
Mortal Kombat, released back in April of 2011, still shows great promise in the fighting genre as it attempts to do more than others. While other fighting games may tack on a story as an afterthought, Mortal Kombat has always made more of an attempt to create a definitive story within its games. For the purposes of this review, I will be writing about the Playstation 3 and the Playstation Vita versions of the game.
It’s now time to move onto the next game in the Mega Man X franchise, and oh boy I’m not even going to lie folks this is possibly the most negative I will be about a video game. Mega Man X did such a great job of pushing the Mega Man name forward and X2 added to it’s greatness. X3 is a great example of a series taking five steps backwards. Since this game had so many ports, due to not owning a Super Nintendo I played this off the Mega Man X collection, so I played the PC version. I’ll get into specifics, but let’s start this game!
Yup it’s time to take a look at one of the all time classics from the Super Nintendo, the series that would become the next evolution for the Mega Man series. I am of course referring to the OG Mega Man X, debuting 21 years ago this game holds a special place in gamers hearts. I have fond memories of this game when I played it as a kid, but I never beat the game itself. Well now I have and I wanted to see if this game still stands the test of time. Is it truly the best in the X line of games? Well grab your controllers and let’s find out!
It’s that time once again boys and girls for yet another Megaman X game review! This time it’s X2, and for some reason there seems to be this weird hate for the game. When I was younger I never had a chance to play this game, but when I purchased the X Collection I came across reviews for X2. Let’s just say they weren’t exactly flattering. So I became curious and wanted to see if this game does what a true sequel should do. Take the basic formula of success while also adding innovations to push the series along. So does Mega Man X2 do that? Well grab your SNES controllers and lets find out.
Well I never thought I would be writing about a Lego game any time soon, I’ve dabbled with the series before from Lego Racers to Lego StarWars and of course Lego Batman’s 1 and 2. I will admit that while most of those games are well crafted none of them held my attention for very long. This all changed with Lego Batman 2 and where now the Lego series entered into the genre of sandbox games. Even then Lego Batman 2 failed to capture my attention. Fast Forward to last year and Lego Marvel Super Heroes is announced, easily the most anticipated Lego game yet. So does this game give you the Marvel experience, while also delivering a solid and fun game. Let’s find out shall we.

I love Megaman X1, that game is one my favorite games of all time. However up until recently I was unable to play it’s sequels due to not knowing about them and focusing on other games. So thanks to Megaman X collection I was able to play the underrated sequel X2, the mixed looked X3, and the awesomeness that is Megaman X4. However the time came to finally play Megaman X5 and I heard my fair share of negative takes on this game but I decided to give this game a fair shot. So does this game continue the excellence or it is all one big nightmare….spoilers…..it’s a nightmare…..
Thanks to the awesomeness of Playstation Plus I was able to download one of their many free games they offer. If you’ve read the title of this particular post then you know that game is Remember Me from Dontnod Entertainment and produced by Capcom. I remember first seeing this game when I attended Wondercon last year and I intrigued to say the least. The concept of memories in a video game format has loads of potential. However I passed on this initially due to me wanting to play other games. Now that I have had the chance to play and beat the game I wanted to share my thoughts. So without further ado let’s dive into the world of Neo Paris.

The jump to the 3D plane was a dangerous road for 2D games. Some franchises successfully made the jump while others experimented then went back to the 2d plane, and some had the misfortune of dying all together. While many of Nintendo’s characters made a decent to excellent jump to 3D during the N64 days, there was one franchise that missed out. The Metroid series had seemingly been left behind and gamers had to play Smash Brothers to play as Samus Aran. Enter the Nintendo Game Cube, and the Metroid series would finally enter the 3D world, but now the game adds the genre of FPS to it. So let’s take a look and see if Retro Studios managed to capture what made Super Metroid so great, with The Chozo Ruins.
