Furdiburb Review

Review; Dec. 18, 2012; Channels: Video Games; By Anne King

Furdiburb Review Remember Tamagotchi? His little frowny face, stinky lines, and lumpy pixels representing gobs of poo as big as he was ... The morbid fun of seeing how long he’d last, the poo piling up, or the obsessive compulsive need to care for him, check on him every hour, lest he die in a pile of his own filth? His successor exists now on Android, in a beta version called Furdiburb, by the makers of Sheado.net. But Furdi’s got a hell of a lot...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review Rebuttal

Review; Feb. 9, 2012; Channels: Video Games; By Anne King

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review Rebuttal Editor's Note: Minor spoilers ahead! OK, OK, I'll admit it: I've never beaten the original Zelda. And in this day of phenomenal graphics and utterly immersive storylines, I couldn't. I'd get bored and wander off to play the latest iteration instead. And yet the latest, Skyward Sword, isn't all it's cracked up to be. It's certainly no Twilight Princess or Ocarina of Time as far as the dark depths to which their stories plunge. Granted, those two...

The Best (And Worst) Video Games of 2011

The Best (And Worst) Video Games of 2011 It's that time of the year again, folks. The time when everybody starts making new years resolutions, only to break them in a matter of weeks. It also happens to be the time of the year when video game critics put out their awards for the industry. Fortunately for us, these edicts will withstand the test of time. From worst to best, find out here what we thought of 2011's offerings -- as well as those that shouldn't have seen the light of day. ...

EA Sports Active II Review

Review; Sep. 20, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By Anne King

EA Sports Active II Review I've been playing this stupid, awesome game (if you can call it that) for the past six months. Maybe longer. The main reason? I hate gyms. The other reasons? I've got a 30 to 40 minute commute; I have four dogs and a cat (and a mess of fish) who need me home after eight to 10 hours so they can eat, go for walks, and do all the other stuff they do on said walks; I work (supposedly) eight hours a day. To wit, I simply don't have enough time for a...

Dog's Life Review

Review; Sep. 20, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By Anne King

Dog's Life Review Yeah, it's simple. It's dinky. The graphics are crap, and the replayability is nil. But it doesn't matter because I love playing that stupid, haughty mutt. Click the image to view game screenshots Basic plotline: You're a dog (who moves more like a weasel romping through tall grass, but whatever), an American Foxhound (who knew?), who's just discovered his girlfriend, Daisy, a (supposedly) yellow retriever, has been dognapped, and you're going...

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn Review

Review; Jan. 24, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By Anne King

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn Review Those who play RPGs know why they play them -- not for the graphics and not for the soundtracks. Definitely not for the corny (and in the event of imports, often poorly translated) lines. Sometimes we appreciate them for their fighting styles, but mostly we play them for the plot. Single-player RPGs appeal to our inner story teller in a way no other genre can. This reliance on storyline is why few RPGs are truly good -- few sit on that shelf we...
