Genre: Third-Person Shooter
Platformers: Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Developer: Double Helix Games
Publisher: Square Enix
Release Date: Sept 16th, 2010

Since AAA publishers refuse to make games for real gamers and have resolved to filling their games with “modern” approach, many of us have had to resort to playing only games in our back catalog. One game that was well worth the journey into the seventh gen history books is Square Enix and Konami’s Front Mission Evolved, a third-person mech shooter for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, featuring hot chicks and plenty of big robots to boot.

Sony’s Servers Responsible for Licenses and Transaction History Are Reportedly Breaking Down

What allows digital distribution to function is user’s security in knowing their purchases are protected and secure. Without this consumer confidence, digital distribution would not have grown into the billion-dollar industry it is today. For this reason alone, it is perplexing why Sony has not dealt with long persisting issues of some user’s purchases not being downloadable or re-downloadable, depending on the instance.

Army Of Two: The 40th Day Retro Review: A Manly Co-op Game From A Bygone Era

Army of Two 40th Day Review

Title: Army of Two: The 40th Day
Genre: Third-Person Shooter
Players: 1 – 2 (co-op online or split-screen)
Platforms: Xbox 360, PS3
Developer: EA Montreal
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Release Date: January 12th, 2010

They really don’t make ’em like this anymore. As some of you know I’ve gone back to playing and reviewing older games since almost every new AAA title is filled with pozzed degeneracy and Left-wing propaganda. Now while I don’t have a whole lot of good to say about Army of Two: The 40th Day, which is a sequel to the 2008 outing of Army of Two, I can readily say that it’s a testosterone-filled third-person shooter that sits at home as a decent (if not moderately entertaining) Gears of War clone that came out during the heyday of the brown-and-gray palette monopoly.

Developer Next Level Games
Publisher: Sega
Release Date: June 15th, 2011

As you know, newer games are all pozzed so I’ve been going through my back catalog to play some of the titles I missed from the yesteryears before Social Justice Warriors co-opted the entire media industry. One such game that caught my eye was Next Level Games’ tie-in to the live-action super hero flick, Captain America: First Avenger.

Sony Believes The Majority Of PS4 Games Can Be Played On PS5; No Word On PS1-PS3 Backwards Compatibility

The official PlayStation blog post that offered a look into the PS5’s specs has been updated. The new update attempts to clarify how the “overwhelming majority” of the 4,000+ PS4 titles will be playable on PS5. However, the blog post offers no word on PS3, PS2, and PS1 backwards compatibility.

Title: The Wheelman
Players: 1
Platforms: PC (Reviewed), PS3, Xbox 360
Developer: Tigon Studios
Publisher: Midway Games/Ubisoft
Release Date: March 24, 2009

Since developers continue to make woke pieces of crap in [current year] and publishers continue to fund woke pieces of crap, I’m continuing to dive into my back catalog of games and review titles that I actually found interesting, unique, overlooked, or just plain fun to play in my down time. One such game is the short-lived Tgon Studios’ exotic action-racer, The Wheelman, which starred Vin Diesel and his steel-grated voice.

Kane And Lynch Retro Review: Clumsy Nihilism

Kane and Lynch Review

Title: Kane & Lynch: Dead Men
Players: 1 – 2 (co-op) 2 – 8 (online)
Platforms: PC (Reviewed), PS3, Xbox 360
Developer: IO Interactive
Publisher: Eidos/Square Enix
Release Date: November 13th, 2007

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is one of those games where the controversy surrounding the game was bigger than anything dealing with the game itself. Namely, Gerstmanngate, which involved Jeff Gerstmann getting fired from Gamespot because he gave the game an above-average 6 out of 10 during a time when Eidos was advertising on the website, which set the seeds as a proto-#GamerGate.

Uncharted 2 Retro Review: Spectacular Moments Hampered By Pacing Issues

A lot of Sony fanboys will swear that the 2009 outing, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, is the greatest game ever made. No foul thing could ever be said about this game throughout seventh gen, and even to this day many claim it’s the greatest game of seventh generation. Let’s be honest, it’s a good game for what it is but it’s not as great as fanboys would lead you on to believe. The graphics still hold up decently enough to be a seventh-gen outing, and the story is filled with a lot of twists and turns, backstabs and very few surprises, but overall it’s the video game equivalent of an IMDB-rated 6/10 Hollywood blockbuster film. Continue reading “Uncharted 2 Retro Review: Spectacular Moments Hampered By Pacing Issues”

Yakuza 4 HD Remaster English Localization Censors “Rape” Text

Yakuza 4 HD Remaster Censorship

The localization team working on the Yakuza remasters don’t seem to have much respect for the original art that they’re supposed to be translating. That has become seemingly evident with the Yakuza 4: HD Remaster for the PS4, where the English version of a conversation has been censored that contained the word “rape”. This is despite the fact that the game is rated ‘M’ for Mature by the ESRB. Continue reading “Yakuza 4 HD Remaster English Localization Censors “Rape” Text”

PlayStation Now Subscription Price Drops To Be “More Compelling”

With Team Xbox noting that they make more revenue through “compelling” live-service and subscriptions than selling consoles, it looks like Sony wants in on this “compelling” subscription fun by lowering PlayStation Now’s monthly fee.

Take-Two Harasses Red Dead Redemption Mod Creator

Take Two

The current state of the AAA industry is one in which companies will do everything short of catering to their audience in order to make money. Increasingly being brought before government oversight over pushing gambling onto children with exploitative designs patented to increase engagement and spending with industry lobbyists denying emphatically the behavior exists. At a time when all eyes both regulatory and civilian are on them, this is the time when the industry needs to appear squeaky clean, even saintly. Take Two Interactive has other ideas, however.
