There have been plenty of card games in the last two decades. I grew up playing most of them, spending my lunch money or my parents money to build decks. One trading card game that has been around and still very popular is the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game, which is played around the world. More >

Japan is known for getting cool special edition consoles and handhelds with some big AAA titles. The Metal Gear Solid series is no stranger to this, since back in 2008, Metal Gear Solid 4 released a special 40GB Gunmetal Grey system.
With Revengance releasing in February, Konami will be releasing More >
Zone of The Enders truly deserves this remake. Beautiful HD rendering along with a widescreen aspect ratio improve a title many have been referring to as one of Kojima’s masterpieces for the past 10 years.
While I will admit to being somewhat bias toward the ZOE series, I will also state that this More >
Only two major titles really rule over the soccer (football) franchise when it comes to video games. These are PES (Pro Evolution Soccer) and FIFA.

Comic-Con is the Mecca of all things nerdy. Anything you look for chances are you will find it at Comic-Con. How you’re going to spend your money is another different story.

I have had a strong stance about rebooting games. For the most part if a series was good, why would they need to change it? And if it’s bad, they might as well try again to make it work. With Castlevania Lords of Shadow, you didn’t even know it was a reboot until you beaten the game. it had new More >
Truth be told, I don’t walk into E3 wondering how many casual games I can get my hands on in the small amount of time allowed. If I can help it, I’ll avoid as many of them as I can while speed-walking to all of the games that I’ve been anticipating for months or years. Having a booth tour at More >

Once every 3 months it happens, duelists line up in the morning or appear in droves in the afternoon with the release of a new set of cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!

In my previous review of Silent Hill HD Collection, I talked about certain problems the game had, which took away from some of the enjoyment.
