Ah, NBA Jam… A classic game that I did play a few times as a kid, but I never really got too hardcore into it, and I sucked badly at it.
But when I saw it was getting a remake, I knew I had to check it out. It looked very much like the classic gameplay-wise, but with better graphics. It looked really fun. But I didn’t buy it because… well, because it’s on a disc rather than being downloadable, which it really should be.
Anyways, enough about that, let’s actually talk about the game. Read on!

Shank was a game that really intrigued me for quite a while. It looked cool, but I was unsure if it was gonna be good, or just needlessly violent to appeal to the masses. The gameplay seemed interesting, but, without playing it, it was hard to tell.
So I finally got to play it, and… I’m pretty satisfied, if not a bit annoyed at a few things.
Read on and see what I liked and disliked about Shank!

Well the E3 conferences are done. Some of them sucked, one of them was fucking awesome, and here I am to give my impressions on them.
I’ll comment about both things that were announced, and my impressions about the conferences as a whole. There were 5 big conferences, and I’ll talk about all of them, though I will just skim through the less interesting ones.
And I know that E3 isn’t done yet, more could be announced, but this is just about the conferences.
So read on!

With Xbox 360 reaching 43 million kills not too long ago, this unlocked a third map for us. I like this kind of community achievement system. Much like what was used in noby noby boy with the moon and mars. In any case, almost none of this was my doing as I didn’t have much time to toy around with this game until tonight. Yes, this is basically a review based on one night’s play. I booted up this game and immediately went for “Play Air Superiority” on Coral Island. A game mode that is exclusively based on air combat. You have to compete for air superioty of an area in the middle of the map. The first day this game came out on xbox I rushed to get it only to find out I couldn’t really play online. This was a perfect time for me to train with the airplanes. It payed off. Dogfights are FUN. I had nothing of the sort in Battlefield: Bad Company. Bad Company being my only real experience with this series in the past mind you. I played countless hours online with my buddies. You can check out my stats online if you want. You will need to login to your EA account to view this I believe.

They are bound to fix these things live on 1943 soon enough as well. It doesn’t seem to be working quite well at this time.
So far I’ve had a few achievements which are decent. I’ll try getting them all. The classes are slightly disappointing versus bad company. I’ve grown quite accustomed to the variety that game had especially when you threw in the many weapons you unlocked while playing the game. Anyways, without further ado, my review of BF1943 on xbox360.

2008 has been a great year in gaming. Companies putting up really fun current-gen entries to old series, some new stuff and overall, whatever system you have (unless you just have a Wii), it was a great year to be a gamer.
So I’ve decided to compile a list of the best games of the year. But I’ll do this a bit differently. Instead of making my own list, I’ll have input from all 4 writers on this site. So without further ado, let’s dig into this!
Well the PSN update today had some pretty epic stuff. Well, mostly just the Mirror’s Edge demo, and the EndWar demo which I had no idea they were releasing. There’s also a WWE Smackdown VS Raw demo and an Alone in the Dark demo, but I don’t care about those.
So here i’ll be giving my first impressions on both those demos. And a little bonus after that
