OutRunning Mario

HIGH Placing first in an online match.

LOW The rage-inducing mission 41, thankfully the only one of its kind.

WTF Apparently Sega history stops at the Dreamcast.

Trials HD: Big Pack Review

Masochistic Feelgood

HIGH A ton of new tracks giving great value for the money.

LOW The second-to-last jump on the "Greatest Hits" track. Argh.

WTF I'm not sure if I want more DLC, or to never play the game again.

Why won't Bungie make the vehicular combat game we all crave?

Doesn't he look like he's having fun?

So I finally got around to playing half an hour of Halo 3: ODST last night, and while I'm not planning to write a review of it any time soon, I wanted to comment on the weird experience I had with the game.

I was playing a friend's game, so I just sort of dropped in medias res, and had no idea what was going on plot-wise, so I'm not going to bother commenting on that aspect. What I will say is that for the first fifteen minutes of my playtime I had a blast. So much fun that I couldn't remember why I'd hated Halo 3 as much as I did (by which I mean "not really that much at all").

The Horror Geek presents: Run over (not away from) zombies in Zombie Driver

If you're tired of shooting zombies in the head and dismembering them with various gardening implements, then perhaps Exor Studios' newest PC title will re-ignite your love of annihilating the undead. The indie Polish developer is hard at work on their first commercial PC release, a game called Zombie Driver. While the title is slightly misleading (the zombies aren't driving), it does promise a great deal of vehicular undead-slaughter. I think that's something we can all get behind.

Sidetracked by Trials HD

I had originally intended to write about Avalon Code tonight, but before I get to that I have to discuss Trials HD.

Anyway, never in a million years would I have predicted that I would have become as obsessed with this game as I have, but it's been dominating my life for the last few days.

Reminding me a lot of an updated Excitebike early on, I knocked out the first few clusters of levels pretty quickly. I didn't get gold medals on all of them, but I did well enough to satisfy my own personal sense of achievement. Moving up, the Hard level was indeed hard. When I got to Extreme, I couldn't believe it.

Trials HD Review

The best Excitebike since Excitebike

HIGH Nailing a tricky series of jumps after trying a few hundred times.

LOW The Extreme level of difficulty is heartlessly punishing.

WTF Why limit the number of attempts or length of play on the hardest levels?
