Resident Evil 5 and the recipe for a successful marriage

There aren't many video games that do a good job of bringing in significant others, at least not of the kinds of games that I like to play. Sure, there are the standbys like Guitar Hero and its ilk. Super Mario Galaxy did sort of okay in this respect, albeit in a limited fashion. Of course, there are many Wii games that appeal to spouses, such as Wii Sports, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, and countless other lesser titles. But those aren't the kinds of games I usually want to play. So what's a gaming-oriented guy to do? Enter Resident Evil 5.

Alone in the Dark: Inferno Review

The Second Time's the Charm

HIGH Pushes the edges of design further than most in recent memory.

LOW This game might have been a blockbuster if it hadn't bungled its initial release.

WTF As much as I loved it, adding alcohol to bullets really makes no sense.

Legendary Review

HIGH The Kraken fight is pretty scary.

LOW If I never shoot another black body armour wearing stormtrooper, it'll be too soon.

WTF There are flying babies with razor-sharp fangs and insect wings. If only this monster design had been used in a better game.

Flower Review

The sublime power of Flower

HIGH One of the most satisfying and appropriate closing credits in a video game.

LOW Getting stuck for about 20 minutes and having no idea what to do next.

WTF Long credits made me wonder "How many people does it take to make a game this short?"

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe Review

HIGH People want to play a game as Batman. This game allows them to do that.

LOW The fatalities are universally terrible.

WTF Here's a memo, Midway. I own this game. I'm not standing in an arcade with people in line to play. So, if I want to pause the game so I can look up a website to find out how to do Batman's… ugh…"Heroic Brutality"… then I should damn well be able to pause the game.
