I set upon my prey for the fifth time that day. Some stoner freak, name of “Monty Weed”. Dumbest face I’ve ever seen on a guy. I adopted the disguise of a goth rocker chick; best no one knows the rad surfer dude was the one who killed his mark. I went about collecting what high-value weapons I could; a shotgun and a flare gun. Excellent. Just as I started tracking him, I saw the poor sap taking a nap. I almost felt bad about snapping his neck and dancing over his corpse. Almost.
Basically, this is how a round of Bloody Good Time goes. Hit the bump for more info and why I cannot stop playing this game.

Boasting an impressive 32 player experience, Section 8 would appear to be a shining light in the crowded multiplayer environments of tween squealing Halo or cheater saturated Call of Duty. However true to form, it leaves the single player campaign with something to be desired. It’s hard times when a videogamer can’t play with himself. Read more!

After being rescued from Mercy Hospital, our foursome crash lands into new DLC released September 29th. Free for PC owners and 560 MS points for the Xbox360, the new campaign features two chapters, original voice acting (which provides good laughs) and a reason to get back into playing Left4Dead. New superficial details such as an improved HUD (which will be utilized in the sequel) and aesthetics like the writing on the wall provide you with the same sense of the murderous infected living behind the corner. The new maps keep the same style and feel of the original, but seem harder.
In the original, you’d run into a weapons resupply once a chapter. In the DLC, they are everywhere and it helps. Playing on expert, the horde is seemingly never ending and rather than the occasional special zombie (smoker, boomer, or hunter), you can expect all three to appear at the same time with the witch or tank in the most inopportune spots during the chase.
While short in length the two chapters appear both in Versus and Survival modes giving the DLC high replay value. Crash Course gives you a chance to hone your zombie killing skills and should you have bought L4D at discount, the $7 worth of MS points you’d spend makes it even more attractive. For those of us that bought it at full price and love the game, it whets our appetite for the real deal in November.
*Also for achievement hunters Valve gave us 10 more to collect…

Time for a double review, this time is the turn of the epic storyline of the one and only, or at least the most remarkable, Afro Samurai.
A series and a movie with great animation, excellent storyline and, to please the fans even more, the voice of some all-time favorites, specially Samuel L. Jackson.

Back in November we posted the first scene of this full-length CG animation. While previous Resident Evil films have drawn upon elements of the series, Degeneration is set in the game universe, centering around Leon Scott Kennedy and Claire Redfield doing what they do best, uncovering secrets and killing zombies.

Yes, I’m a bit late to the show, but I got a chance to watch Five Centimeters per Second, the latest film from famous director Makoto Shinkai. Hit the jump to see how it rates.

What do you get when you mix 2-parts RPG with 1-part adventure and 4-parts multiplayer party game? You get Dokapon Kingdom: a unique title that sets out on a quest to surprise gamers of all ages by raising the bar on the party game genre.
Without question Dokapon Kingdom is definitely a unique game. Its as if developer Sting decided to play the part of Dr. Frankenstein and began to lop off the best bits and pieces from the gaming universe; a little from genre A, a little from genre B and little from genre C and then proceeded to fuse them all together. The end result is a cute and colorful title that is sure to provide you with hours upon hours of entertainment and laughter.
So if you feel like kickin’ some serious monster butt, humiliating your soon to be ex-friends and hording ridiculous amounts of gold as you spin your way to victory then follow me as we hack-n-slash our way through Dokapon Kingdom.

This weekend I was dragged kicking and screaming away from the Valkyria Chronicles demo to review other new content on the Playstation Network. My tantrums ceased when I saw the name, which is one of the longest (and greatest) names in video game history.

A tale of Souls and Swords, eternally retold….
Welcome back to the stage of history!
The next entry in the Soul series is here. After a rather mediocre third installment and surprise guest stars from everyone’s favorite galaxy far, far away, has Soulcalibur IV found its way back to the ever-elusive Good Sequel Bay, or is this another crash landing on Bad Game Rock?
(This review is based on the Xbox 360 version. PS3 users’ mileage may vary.)

What’s better than listening to music on your MP3 player of choice when on the bus/on the train/at some place that makes you sit still? Playing music on a DS in a way that makes people look at you funny, probably moreso than using two styluses to beat a Japanese Taiko drum. Rhythm Tengoku Gold is the sequel to the 2006 cult hit (aptly named Rhythm Tengoku) for Gameboy Advance. Now that the second incarnation is surfacing in stores, we’re here to tell you whether or not it’s worth the 3990 yen asking price.
