Journey Review

January 7, 2013 // 1 Comment

Journey was released on March 13, 2012 as a PSN exclusive and was met with very high review scores; most people seem to love it. So it was no surprise when the game was released in retail stores along with other thatgamecompany games “Flower” and “Flow” as “the Journey Collector’s Edition.” The game is so well liked that it was the [...]

Starhawk Review

May 14, 2012 // 4 Comments

When Starhawk was first announced and the details starting coming out, it immediately grabbed my attention in part because it was a space-western but also because it seemed like an ambitious and unique concept. As the spiritual-successor to a popular online only game, Starhawk has some pretty big shoes to fill. Now I’m not familiar with [...]

MLB 12: The Show Review

March 13, 2012 // 5 Comments

Sony’s MLB: The Show series is widely regarded as the best sports game on the market, something Sony obviously takes to heart since right on the cover you’ll see “#1 Rated Sports Game, 4 Years in a Row!” With opening day of a new season of baseball less than a month away, The Show is back for the 2012 season and faces the same [...]

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Review

November 10, 2011 // 6 Comments

Uncharted 3 was my most anticipated game of the year. It’s been a week since its release, and I have finished the single player campaign twice (Normal and Crushing), and I can safely say that it lived up to my anticipation and expectations. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves set the bar extremely high, and I believe Naughty Dog are right when they say [...]

God of War Collection Review

September 5, 2011 // 3 Comments

The God of War Collection contains HD ports of what many consider to be amongst the best Playstation 2 games ever made: God of War and God of War II. Remastered in HD and with gameplay operating at 60 frames per second, the two PS2 classics are a must have for any PS3 gaming library whether you have them for PS2 or not. The collection has been out [...]

InFamous 2 Review

June 9, 2011 // 5 Comments

The end of Sucker Punch’s 2009 smash hit InFamous let everyone know that a sequel was coming because when the first one was over, you knew that everything you as Cole had just went through was in preparation for a much larger battle to come: a battle against the Beast. You don’t have to wait long to battle the Beast either, as [...]

InFamous Review

May 7, 2011 // 11 Comments

I’m not a comic book fan and don’t particularly care for superhero stuff at all. Despite hearing great things about InFamous, it never really appealed to me as something I’d want to buy. When I finally got a Playstation 3, it came bundled with two games: Killzone 2 and InFamous. In addition to those two games, I also got plenty [...]

Lair Review

April 29, 2011 // 0 Comments

Lair is something of your basic story of guy that fights for the good guys, slowly discovers that there are corrupt forces at work on his side, joins the other side, and must then defeat the corrupt leadership he used to work for to bring peace to the world.  Sound a tad complicated?  It is, but the story flows fairly nicely.  If only I could [...]

Killzone 2 Review

April 22, 2011 // 1 Comment

Hello and welcome to The Backlog, a look at some older video games that I’m finally getting around to playing.  Here on the debut edition we’ll be taking a look at Killzone 2, the 2009 follow-up to the Playstation 2 hit Killzone and the PSP installment, Killzone: Liberation. The game starts with one of the best intro video clips I’ve ever [...]
