by

As the flood of holiday game releases start next week now is a good time to tackle this question. Whether you’re a hardcore gamer or a casual one, when is a game finished for you?  For each person a game is “finished” in different ways.   In ye olde times a game was finished “When I finished the game”, i.e when the story was finished.

Young Thor Review

September 16, 2010

Young Thor is one of many “PsP Mini” titles released since the launch of the PsP Go in an attempt to get into the “small game for cheap” market the Iphone created.  While many of these games are ports or aren’t worth your time and cash, Young Thor is one of the exceptions as it’s a fun quick hit game that deserves some time and attention.

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game Review

August 19, 2010

The Scott Pilgrim Vs The World movie, based on the 6 part Scott Pilgrim comic series was released last week to theaters, to coincide with that Ubisoft made and released Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game last week as well.  I know what you’re thinking, a game based on not just a comic, but the movie the comic was based on? It can’t be good, be gone property based game be gone!!!!!

Thankfully Ubisoft did a good job and while a bit on the small side, Scott Pilgrim is a lot of fun.  For those who are unaware of the premise of Scott Pilgrim and have yet to read the comics or see the movie (you should it’s awesome), Scott Pilgrim must fight and defeat Romona Flowers’ 7 evil exs.  This in turn, leads to seven different levels to the game, each with little secrets and surprises to discover.
