Super Powers

Bleach: Soul Resurreccion Review

Still Less Filler Than the Anime

HIGH I can ogle Aizen as much as I want, and nobody can stop me.

LOW Aizen is the cheesiest character in a game full of cheese.

WTF Aizen's ridiculously slow power-walk as his default movement speed.

PAX Prime 2011: Prototype 2 Preview

Prototype 2 Screenshot

Activision hosted a preview at a local hotel near PAX Prime 2011, and my wife and I got a sneak peek at their lineup. On display were Goldeneye 007: Reloaded, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, X-Men: Destiny (holy cow, that’s a lot of colons…) and Prototype 2. There's not really much to report about most of those titles, or at least, they didn't catch and hold my attention for more than a minute or two. However, Prototype 2 was the one I was most interested in, and thankfully, it looked great.

Now with Chain-link Fence Climbing Action

HIGH Navigating the city is still extremely enjoyable.

LOW Vehicle escort missions still suck.

WTF Evil Cole + Kessler skin = Disturbing cut-scenes.

The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile Review

I was a Cyborg Ninja Assassin

HIGH: Finally beating a particularly nasty wave of bad guys in the second-to-last level.

LOW: Realizing that the strategy for every single enemy is "warp behind them, then attack."

WTF: The text RPG boss.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Review

FU2 is the Most Appropriate Acronym Ever

HIGH: Using a Jedi mind trick to get a stormtrooper to commit suicide.

LOW: Everything else.

WTF: You know what this level needs? More walkers.

Video: Robot Chicken Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2

Publishers should take a page from LucasArts. The best way to sell your preposterous video game might be to put away the expensive pyrotechnic effects, shaky-cam footage and orchestral score and just go for laughs.

DC Universe Online Hands-On Preview

I freely admit that I've got next to no experience with MMOs. I rarely play games on the PC, and my schedule is so busy and erratic that trying to coordinate with other people is next to impossible. As a result, I had only cursory knowledge of what DC Universe Online had to offer. However, after the thorough walkthrough provided by one of the game's developers, I'd be more than willing to give this one a shot.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Review

The Half-Hearted Dracula

HIGH The combat system once all the moves are unlocked.

LOW The first several hours.

WTF Gabriel Belmont's neck is bigger than his head.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Review

Swinging Four Ways

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Screenshot

HIGH Dragging a gunsel into the shadows and webbing them to a wall in a single, effortless motion.

LOW Being unable to tell an enemy from a wall in 2099.

WTF Wait... he ate Uncle Ben? Ick.
