Review: Fallout: New Vegas

Subtitle: 
What happens in Fallout, stays in Fallout.
thumbnail_summary: 
Smoke rises from burning homes like the fleeing dreams of those who once struggled to make this land their own. Along the sides of this town’s main street stand the posts upon which its residents have been crucified. Not yet dead, but too far gone to save, their moans and cries provide a macabre orchestra for this tragedy.

A Game About Games
thumbnail_summary: 
There’s definitely some sort of trippy meta-layer to being a game developer who develops a game about game development, but Kairosoft has pulled it off well with Game Dev. Story on the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Review: Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

Subtitle: 
Layton and Luke fight for the future in this heartwarming DS title.
thumbnail_summary: 
While a lot of the focus concerning Professor Layton has now shifted to the in development Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright title, gamers shouldn’t forget that Layton currently has a new adventure on the market. Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, the third game of the quirky puzzle series, does not add much novelty in terms of gameplay, but does include something the previous two titles did not: a narrative that is both gripping and heartwarming.

Art Academy

Subtitle: 
The Push That Brings Us the Next Great Artist
thumbnail_summary: 
This week sees the newest release from Nintendo, Art Academy for the DS. The title joins in the ranks of an ever growing generation of games such as Brain Age, America’s Test Kitchen, the My Personal/Coach games and even Wii Fit as the latest in the trend of games that claim to boost your own attributes - not just those of your 72ppi character. The bent of art academy is simple – if you don’t know how to draw, this game will teach you how, if you do have some drawing know-how, then you can use this technology to turn your DS into a portable sketchbook. If we just consider the game within this limited framework, as being for art what Wii Fit is for exercise then the game is quite successful. However, if we consider the larger claim of the game, that this game will make you an artist, well then things start getting complicated.

Review: Civilization V

Subtitle: 
There's No Turning Back Now.
thumbnail_summary: 
Civilization (the original) was one of my first PC games. Even at that young age (somewhere around ten years old), I knew that there was something special about it. While I had begged my dad to get me a Nintendo because I played Mike Tyson's Punchout at a friend's house and I was still very into those dusty cartridges, I knew that Civ offered something that could never be matched on the TV. You could say that Civ guaranteed that I would never truly become a console gamer. Consoles could be entertaining, but they would never be able to match the experience that games like Civ could provide.
