A Geeky Review- Tomb Raider
Last Updated on Monday, 25 March 2013 12:01 Written by Laddie13 Monday, 25 March 2013 01:00
Every once in a while a game comes along that completely reaffirms my love of gaming. The recent reboot of Tomb Raider is one of those games. I had expected great things from Lara Croft‘s “rebirth” but what I got was quite a lot more awesome than I had planned. Tomb Raider is a near perfect game from start to finish and will leave you wanting more from our heroine, Lara, who finally got the game she deserves.
Through the years I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the Tomb Raider franchise. Being a female myself I was instantly smitten with the idea of controlling an intelligent female protagonist. Despite her extremely short-shorts and well endowed chest, Lara had credibility as a dual gun wielding action/adventurer who became an icon in the “boys club” of memorable video game characters. Unfortunately for Lara, she was always kind of one-dimensional and through the years lacked character development and was slowly forgotten as her male counterparts progressed and became multi-dimensional.
Geeky Game Review: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

First off, PlayStation All-Stars is very different from Super Smash Bros. It may appear to be highly influenced by Smash Bros. at first, but just a little bit of playing will reveal that it is its own game. While some things can still be compared, there are some clear advantages and disadvantages in the game.
Looking at the characters, each and every one of them seems like they were pulled right from their last game and dropped into the same universe, which is what the developer, SuperBot Entertainment, was going for. There are currently 20 playable characters with future DLC promising to add more characters and other goodies. I was impressed that the characters were not just ones that are currently or recently popular. Characters like Sir Daniel and Nariko are not very well-known, but they are welcomed members of the game and play rather well. As for the characters from recently popular games, there is Kratos, Sackboy, Nathan Drake, and a good list of others. There have even been some third-party members that made people really happy, like Big Daddy and Dante. While the list isn’t perfect (where is Crash Bandicoot?), it is impressive and all of the characters are entertaining.

Best Of 2012 Pt 2 Portable Uncharted
Last Updated on Wednesday, 12 December 2012 01:59 Written by Laddie13 Wednesday, 12 December 2012 01:59
Continuing on with my game of the year series, this week I look at a few of my favorites on a brand spanking new console, the Playstation Vita. It’s not much of a secret that when it comes to gaming I tend to lean-to the Sony side. So this past February I welcomed the Playstation Vita with open arms. The Vita has experienced mixed reactions from the gaming crowd and while there’s not been a slew of games releasing weekly for it, there are some gems amongst the slowly but surely building Vita library.
The Vita sports dual analog sticks so being a fan of shooters I was anxious to test it out. First up was Unit 13 a third person shooter that was mission based with the theory that it was easy by jumping in and out of the game since you were gaming on a portable system. It’s main downfall was that there was no multiplayer. Resistance Burning Skies, based on one of my favorite Sony series, was mediocre but still offered a very fun multiplayer experience on the go. Currently I’m playing Black Ops Declassified and it’s not as bad as some would have you believe. The campaign or lack of one is similar to Unit 13 and offers short missions instead of a story. The multiplayer portion is somewhat of an improvement and will be familiar to fans of the series. The biggest mistake Black Ops Declassified made was not including a zombie mode.
Meet Outlast, the PC survival horror game coming from big time developers. [VIDEO]

It’s fair to say that much like first person shooters, survival horror games will never go away. Some blow our minds, some get crapped on, some we never even hear of. Outlast is a newly announced survival horror game that might just turn one insane, cause some pants crapping and is guaranteed to get noticed.
Backed by industry heavyweights from such franchises as Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell and Uncharted, the game is priming itself to start a new cult of players. The developers decided to name their new studio after one of gaming’s biggest cliches – Red Barrels. Not sure if it points to their extensive years in gaming or that they could blow up in your face if you become careless. Either way is good with me.
“Hell is an experiment you can’t survive in Outlast.”
Outlast aims to scare the bejesus of players by delving into the monstrous notions of the human psyche. Set in the creepy Mount Massive Asylum, deep in the Colorado mountains, our hero Miles Upshur begins investigating the facility thanks to an inside source. Once in the asylum, Miles learns that scary things that bump in the night might not be the worse things out there. “There are already a lot of great games out there about terrifying monsters that eat brains; we want Outlast’s to be scary because you’ll know the enemies you face still have them” – Red Barrel co-founder Philippe Morin.
Red Barrels plans to bring the PC only title to Steam sometime in 2013. Keep your peepers here as more info and images come in! Hit the break to catch the press release, a few screen shots and the first teaser trailer.
