The Top 10 Horror Video Games was a tough list to come up with, because there are so many great horror video games to choose from. I completely composed this list of next generation console games (Xbox 360 and Playstation 3), so you should be able to go out and purchase these titles at your local game retailer just in time for Christmas.

Game Review: Bayonetta

Bayonetta1

Bayonetta is easily the most difficult game to rate that I’ve came across. The action title from Platinum Games features hands-down the best fighting system I’ve ever seen in an action game, and, yes, that includes the Devil May Cry, God of War and Ninja Gaiden franchises. There are a ton of combos to pull off, plenty of ways to outfit Bayonetta for combat and a ton of epic boss battles throughout the game. However, … Continue reading

Game Review: Saints Row: The Third

SaintsRowTheThird2

Saints Row: The Third is the most over the top, perverted and action-packed game I’ve ever played. The game constantly throws pop culture references at you, and each mission seems to be more ridiculous than the last, even when you think it couldn’t possibly get any crazier. If you’re unfamiliar with the Saints Row series, you should know that it’s a sandbox, action shooter series much like the Grand Theft Auto series. The main difference … Continue reading

Top 5 Video Game Protagonists

Sonic_the_hedgehog[1]

While it seems in today’s society that we are easily offended by individuals who act outside of social norms, we seem to have a high tolerance for these same people in popular culture.

Could you imagine if a real life equivalent … Continue reading
