CGRundertow SAINTS ROW: THE THIRD for Xbox 360 Video Game Review

I feel like character customization has really gotten out of hand. For some reason, people think…yeah, it’s very important to be able to adjust the height of a character’s skull and the width of his irises. I mean, there’s detail and then there’s…who does this stuff? But you know, I gotta hand it to THQ. Labeling my hairstyle “voluminous?” Used in a sentence, “My Derek, your hair is so voluminous.” Flattery will get you everywhere, Saints Row: The Third. So

CGRundertow NASCAR UNLEASHED for Xbox 360 Video Game Review

When Activision isn’t pumping all sorts of cash and time into the making of the next Modern Warfare smash hit, what on Earth could they be doing? What do they consider good use of time? It seems to me like they think that the resurrection of a racing game series such as NASCAR published by EA Sports is fodder for their cannons. So be it. You like to crash and dash? Grab a hold of NASCAR Unleashed, developed by Firebrand

CGR Undertow – BLOOD & BACON review for Xbox 360

Well, this is a pleasant little game. You might as well pack a picnic! Grab some apple slices, and chilled milk. Take this party down to the park. And hey, invite some of your friends. Grab a flashlight, too. Make it a lovely summer evening. With friends. How �bout you, sideburns? You want some of this milk? Well, so much for the…f*cking picnic. It�s alright. I think I…lost my appetite. I�ll tell you what I like about picnics, though. You

CGRundertow WORMS for Xbox 360 Video Game Review

I’m going to be a good boy and let this preamble be the only reference to Jim Carrey’s schtick in Dumb and Dumber. That out of the way? Good. If you’ve never played Worms… well, you’ve probably not been to the right kinds of parties. There was a time that, if alcohol was being consumed in the vicinity of a PlayStation, a game of Worms was going to break out. It’s goofy, it’s quick to pick up and play, and

NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. U DELUXE REVIEW! | Upside Down Shark

Ah another year and another Mario title. What better way to ring in 2019 than by jumping on mushrooms, dodging carnivorous plants and sliding down bare pipe. All of which and more you can do in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. Arguably the last big Wii U release to be ported to the Switch, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe has some big boots to fill coming off the monumental triumph of 2017’s Mario Odyssey. But are the latest

CGRundertow VVVVVV for PC Video Game Review

Being addicted to something is terrible. You keep using the substance or whatever, despite adverse consequences. We all have our vices, for some it’s a good beer or having a quick smoke. For others, it’s playing an engaging retro-themed puzzler. When I first bought this game, I spent hours flipping onto ceilings and platforms, dodging lies and collecting trinkets. The result was me loosing track of time, and I think I was taking an ethics course in college at the

LGR – Santa Claus in Trouble – PC Game Review

[electronic version of “Little Drummer Boy”] [fizz, sip] Aahhh! [typing] The more I think about it, the less I’m sure what it is about Christmas time that pressures game developers to make more games about it than any other holiday. You’d just think they’d want to cash in on the rampant consumerism and commercially manufactured holiday spirit, but if that were the only reason, then games like THIS wouldn’t exist. Santa Claus in Trouble, developed by Joy Mania Development and

LGR – Ikari Warriors – PC Booter Game Review

[MIDI music plays] [typing] Back in the 1980s, one of the most common types of game to see for personal computers was the arcade port. Sometimes they were awesome. Sometimes they were aw-FUL. And sometimes they were Ikari Warriors, the arcade game by SNK released in 1987 by Data East USA and ported by Elite Systems, Ltd. The box is pretty typical stuff for back then, promising arcade realism at home, and shoving in your face the idea that the

Sonic Unleashed (Xbox 360/PS3) – Underrated? – IMPLANTgames

Sonic Unleashed is a platformer developed by Sonic Team and released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2008. There was also a port for the Wii and PlayStation 2, but this video will only be covering the High Definition version of the game. In any case, Sonic’s first outing on 7th generation gaming hardware was mostly panned by critics and effectively marked the end of the Adventure styled games which debuted way back in 1998. Sonic Unleashed is
