When I was a young lad, I used to play a little game called The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past with my father and brother. I'd say this was my first video gaming experience, and what sparked my love for the interactive media we know so well today. I would also consider it my favorite video game of all time. So you can imagine my surprise when Nintendo announced that they were doing a sequel to this game that's so dear to me.
Back in 2010, Remedy released their long-in-development game Alan Wake. It was met with very positive reviews, but still ended up with slightly disappointing sales figures. There are many factors causing the lack of sales, but the biggest one was most likely Rockstar’s critical and commercial hit, Red Dead Redemption, hitting on the same day.
I’d be lying if I said I consistently play the Soul Calibur series, but I’d also be lying if I said I wasn’t a fan. I’ve played nearly every game in some way, but I’ve only ever owned 2 and 5. However, I consider it one of my favorite fighting franchises, and put it above the likes of Street Fighter and Tekken. The mechanics throughout the series have always been fun and innovative, and that doesn’t change in 5.

With the original Portal, Valve created a short but sweet game with a unique gameplay mechanic in which you create and walk through portals to solve puzzles. Not only was it new, but it was fun and challenging, and it was incredibly satisfying whenever you solved a tough puzzle. Flash forward to Portal 2, which has the exact same feeling of accomplishment and satisfying gameplay that made the first game such a big hit.
Bulletstorm is not your average shooter. It has many different elements that make it a truly unique take on the over saturated genre. These different elements are the points you get for each kill, and the moves you can pull off, called "skillshots".
Back in the days of the SNES and Genesis, I was an extremely young gamer, just earning my gaming wings. I had a SNES, and along with Goof Troop and A Link to the Past, one of my first games were the original Donkey Kong Country.
Have you ever wondered what a real zombie apocalypse would feel like? If so, Dead Rising probably isn't the game you're looking for. It's filled with so much over-the-top-ness and fun, there's no way this is what a real zombie apocalypse would be. If so, I can't wait until Z-Day.
Solve this riddle for me. Level 5 has made the third game in the "Professor Layton" series. Is it worth playing? If you answered "No", you're wrong my friend. This game is amazing.
After just finishing Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, I'm completely satisfied with the game. With enough challenge, story, throwbacks, and surprises to please any fan of the series, this was a great ride.
