Review: Alien Swarm

Subtitle: 
It would be called "James Cameron's Left 4 Aliens," but there were copyright issues.

<p> When reviewing a game, it can be really tempting to describe it as Other Game 1 + Other Game 2. Fallout 3 is just Oblivion plus S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Mass Effect 2 is basically Gears of War with dialog trees, Starcraft is Command and Conquer plus Koreans&hellip;you get the picture. But even though it&rsquo;s easy and fun to do reviews this way, most people try to avoid it, as it&rsquo;s generally considered unprofessional. Generally.</p>

Creative Energy

You're got 1500 quests to finish up, and just a few months before a major expansion will utterly decimate the game world your avatar grew up in?  You, sir, are going to need a little pick me up for all those long nights! A little energy - perhaps, even, a little mana?

Starcraft II Released

Starcraft II

Honestly, if you're reading this, stop, leave your studio apartment, basement, or dungeon, and go pick up Starcraft II.  It's only the biggest game release since WoW's Wrath of the Lich King.

Go ahead, we'll wait - We promise.

Come on people, go Zerg rush something already!!

"All Your Kongregates Are Belong to GameStop"

Kongregate

As I strolled through GameStop today to pick up my copy of Starcraft II, I didn't see any free flash games fluttering through the air or peeking out at me from behind used copies of God of War III. Normally, it would be pretty odd of me to think to look for free flash games at the giant retail chain, but with the announcement that Kongregate.com has been purchased by GS, my search seems a lot less silly.

Alien Swarm PSA: How Not to Cure Infestation

It happens to everyone, even the best of us:  You and your marine buddies are out on another bughunt and everything is going well, when suddenly a facehugger parasite jumps out of nowhere and clamps onto someone’s face.  Now the victim is going to die painfully over the next several seconds, and it’s up to his comrades to answer one critical question to save his life: How do you cure infestation?

Hey WoW players!  All those annoying keys and buttons just too much for you to handle?  Well, now you can spam heals, trigger macros, or let everyone know that despite wiping your entire raid, you at least have chicken - all without lifting a finger!  It's the Word of Warcraft Tap Chat!

You see it's a pedal, and you... well, you step on it... and it does stuff! Cool stuff!  Really cool stuff!  Stuff your hands are too busy to do!

First Shot: Alien Swarm

I'm sure this is exactly what Nikola Tesla had in mind for his inventions.

Valve released a new game this week.  Surprised?  I certainly was.  But there’s more: It’s available for free, it’s not a first-person shooter, and, most surprisingly of all, it was released on time (rim shot).

Sims 3: Late Night will give our computers a major case of Deja Vu this fall.

Review: Blur

Subtitle: 
Can a Good Online Mode Make a Game?

Here's your one sentence review of Blur from Bizarre Creations: it's Mario Kart, grown up. There's more to it than that, but really, it feels like it took everything from the famous kart racer and added depth, polish and features that older audiences can appreciate and even get addicted to. I guess that's what they were trying to get at in their silly ad campaign.

Review: Lost Planet 2

Subtitle: 
Sweet Monsters Outweighed by Sour Gameplay
thumbnail_summary: 
Ten years after the events of the original game, Lost Planet 2 tells the story of the brutal conflict to collect life sustaining Thermal Energy on E.D.N. III. Numerous factions fight to control the precious material, and are willing to do whatever it takes in order to survive. While the war is tiring on its own, the denizens of E.D.N. III must also contend with the Akrid, a ferocious insect-like life form that ravages the land in search of prey.
