Blue Estate Review

June 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

If you don’t know what Blue Estate is (and I didn’t), it’s a comic book by Viktor Kalvachev. This is a digital only game, based on the comic, by developers HeSaw (from what I can gather, the first game from the Paris based developing studio). It’s unlike anything currently available on PS4. That’s a good thing for [...]

Sparkle 2 Review

May 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

Match three games have been popular for over a decade now thanks to their addictive simplicity and ultimately their challenge. These types of games come in a few different flavors; some require you to switch adjacent pieces to match three of a color or type (like the Saga series) and others require you to launch a colored object at moving objects [...]

Resogun Review

November 21, 2013 // 3 Comments

I honestly didn’t know what to expect going into Resogun. I knew going in that it would be a free to play launch title available to Playstation Plus members, so I really didn’t do much in terms of pre-launch research. My way of thinking is almost any free game is worth at least playing so I really didn’t need much in the way of [...]

Syder Arcade Review

October 28, 2013 // 3 Comments

As someone who has been videogaming for thirty years or so I cut my teeth on all kinds of games including a healthy batch of what we affectionately refer to as “schmups” which is short hand for “shoot ’em ups.” A shoot ’em up is typically you in a spaceship or some other flying vehicle against hordes of enemies in crazy [...]

Call of Juarez Gunslinger Review

May 28, 2013 // 11 Comments

It’s a funny thing when a franchise can have three retail games available, the last of which is widely considered to be quite bad, and then have a fourth game be reduced down to a cheap digital only title. Now you may be asking “well what’s funny about that?” and the funny thing is the $15 downloadable title with almost no promotion [...]

Star Wars Pinball Review

February 28, 2013 // 0 Comments

There was a time when I thought pinball on a console was stupid and couldn’t possibly be any fun, and then PlayStation Plus featured Marvel Pinball as a free download. I tried it and ended up loving it. The folks at Zen Studios have crafted a lot of virtual tables, but it’s their Marvel tables that have really been their strong suit (and why [...]

Crazy Taxi Review

February 9, 2013 // 1 Comment

Crazy Taxi ate a lot of my quarters back in the late 90s and early 00s. I finally got around to picking up the PSN version in December, and now it's time for the review in the 40th QDR. Is the PSN version worth owning? [...]

Nintendo Land Review

February 7, 2013 // 1 Comment

Day 38 is here, and it brings TVE's second Wii U game review. Nintendo Land is a pack-in for the Deluxe model, and is also available for purchase for around $50. It's fun, but not worth that kind of money. Click to read the review. [...]

Zen Pinball 2 + Plants vs. Zombies Table Review

September 10, 2012 // 0 Comments

Zen Pinball 2 isn’t really a game, it’s a pinball platform. As such, it’s free to download. Zen Pinball 2 is actually an upgrade for Zen Pinball and Marvel Pinball. If you own either of those two pinball games on PS3, you’ll be able to import your tables to Zen Pinball 2. The benefit of doing this is that all of the tables have been [...]
