Review: Dragon Age 2

Subtitle: 
Is this a practical joke?
thumbnail_summary: 
Do you ever feel like the world's getting...simpler? Like everything from eating to fighting is a lot less complex than it used to be.

"Do you ever feel like the world's getting...simpler? Like everything from eating to fighting is a lot less complex than it used to be," a lunatic confides to me in a run-down tavern. The line elicits immediate resentment in me. Why? Because a Bioware writer had inserted a fourth wall-breaking background character into their game, Dragon Age 2, in an effort to be tongue-in-cheek but instead, it neatly encapsulates the developer's apparent disdain for their loyal following.

Review: Portal 2

Subtitle: 
This is a Triumph!
thumbnail_summary: 
Portal 2 has Chell awakening after hundreds of years trapped in an Aperture Science stasis chamber, only to find that facility has fallen to ruin with plants growing throughout the facility. Guided by Wheatley, a somewhat klutzy personality core (eye-shaped computer) voiced by British comedian Stephen Merchant, Chell seeks to escape the ruins of Aperture Science, and in the process GLaDOS is accidentally resurrected.

Does this one really need a full review?  Portal 2 is a great game.  So just buy the damned thing.

Bam!  Easy review; cash in the bank.  Moving on now…

(No.  Do the review.  –Ed.)

Ok ok, fine!

Review: Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime

Subtitle: 
We're Not Afraid of Ghosts, But This Game Is A Nightmare
thumbnail_summary: 
Last month, Atari released Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime, a new foray into the Ghostbusters universe. If you remember, 2009 brought us Ghostbusters: The Video Game, a third-person shooter that placed players in the role of the Rookie, a new employee hired by the original 4 Ghostbusters to help out with the increased workload brought on by the return of Gozer (the bad guy/hot chick covered in bubbles from the first movie). It’s important to point out how and why Ghostbusters: The Video Game was as good as it was, because the new Ghostbusters release shows that maybe it was just too damn good to follow up.
