Shenmue II Second Opinion

While I didn't grow up in a culture like Ryo's (or Gene's), I have lived in places with many similarities. I can definitely relate to elements in the game that are signatures of non-Western cultures, and appreciate their genuineness.

Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II – Review

In theory, a game like PSO is every gamer's dream—join up with three other players from other parts of the country (or the world, once the Japanese servers get linked up) and go on an adventure to kill enemies, level up, and maybe find ultra rare weapons and items. However, like most utopias, the world of PSO sounds much better in theory than it does in reality. Unlike games with computer-controlled allies, every other character on PSO (aside from the monsters, of course) is controlled by another human being—complete with all the flaws and foibles most people seem to possess in abundance. These character flaws come into play regularly for some reason, leading those of us who are older, kinder, or just simply polite to wonder just what's wrong with people.

Metal Gear Solid 2, for all of its sweeping ideology and bold provocations, was a game that suffered under the weight of its own ambitions.

Thought Processing: Are Game Mascots a Thing of the Past?

In the world of videogames, there are a number of virtual celebrities that have just as much fame and recognition as those on the silver screen or MTV. In fact, some are so famous that they’ve reached the exalted "single-word name" plateau, eclipsing countless other real-life personalities. Mario. Sonic. Lara. You know them on sight, you’ve played their games, and the odds are that you love at least a few of them.

Wild Arms 3 – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Violence

Quantum Redshift – Review

Considering that the original Wipeout was released way back in 1995, its surprising that so little of the formula has changed over the last seven years. Its been tweaked, refined, and placed in a prettier package, but its still the same show
