Super Powers

Dante's Inferno Second Opinion

Hellishly Good

HIGH Demolishing hordes of demons with righteous holy light.

LOW Trying to figure out how to stay airborne for eight seconds.

WTF Why is there no second, darker ending for playing the evil side?

Podcast update, Dante's trials, and Nier's fishing

I polished off Dante’s Inferno a few days ago, and liked it so much that I went back and completed the Gates of Hell survival mode, and I never do that kind of stuff. In fact, I was almost tempted to play through it again in order to max out the Evil side of the skills tree, but common sense got the better of me and I figured that my time should probably go towards something else in my to-play pile.

Dante's Inferno is... good!

After doing my due diligence for the podcast (and noticing that there's a much-needed lull in current releases) I went to my "play this later" stack and selected Dante's Inferno. An infamous title for several reasons, I think it's fair to say that I didn't expect anything more than a poorly-conceived God of War clone, but the reality is that it's a much better game than I could have guessed.

God of War III sucks more, Fly Fu, and Trine: Path to New Dawn

Fly Fu (PlayStation Portable Mini) - I fell in love with this game's graphic style, but it plays like garbage.

God of War III and a PAXPrime Tweetup

While I think my wife is a bigger fan of the series than I am, I certainly enjoyed the last two God of War games. They were pretty close to the top of the PlayStation 2 action genre if you ask me, so I was definitely curious to see where the developers would take it on Sony's new machine. The answer? Nowhere special.

Crackdown 2 Review

More of the Same, Only Less of it

HIGH It's good to hear the voice of the announcer again.

LOW An astonishing lack of variety and absurd amounts of repetition.

WTF Why was this not released as $15 DLC?

God of War III Review

Where Gods go to Die

HIGH: The battle with Hades.

LOW: The underwhelming Labyrinth.

WTF: Kevin Sorbo makes a cameo, but no Lucy Lawless?

God of War III

Game Description: God of War III is a single player action game, exclusive to the PlayStation 3, and the final installment of the God of War trilogy. Containing signature and addictive God of War gameplay — a combination of over-the-top action combat, exploration and puzzle-solving — along with an engrossing mythologically inspired storyline and a selection of new weapons and a new weapons system, it is a fitting conclusion to the much praised God of War franchise.

God of War III: A disappointing finale

In between dissertation writing sessions, I recently managed to eek out enough time to play through God of War III. I purchased my Ultimate Edition copy the day it came out, and I just couldn't hold off any longer. I consider the first two God of War games to be the best action games of their kind and I was dying to see how the series wrapped up.

Be warned, spoilers abound.

Dante's Inferno: The Dark Forest Review

Visceral's Own Aokigahara

HIGH It's free!

LOW It's still not even worth the HD space it's written on.

WTF So Dante fought his fiercest foes before he even stepped foot into Hell?
