That’s it. I can’t take it anymore. I give up, cry uncle, throw in the towel — basically, whatever metaphor for quit you want to use.
I cannot beat “Crescent Pale Mist,” a side-scrolling action-platformer for the PlayStation 3. At least, I can’t beat it without a lot more time and luck then I’ve got.
"Dead Money," the first downloadable content (DLC) for "Fallout: New Vegas," wasn't quite what I was expecting.
Not too terribly long ago, I reviewed a fairly high-profile cooperative game released by Namco Bandai: "Enslaved: Odyssey to the West," the story of two strangers forced to work together to survive in a post-apocalyptic America.
"Ys: The Oath in Felghana" returns us to the world of adventurer Adol Christin, which I first visited a few weeks ago in "Ys Seven."
Sorry, I haven't written in a bit. I've been struggling to put together a review of "Call of Duty: Black Ops."
Yes, I could have skipped it and written about something else, but it's sort of stuck in my head, an obstacle I must surmount before I can move on.
I had serious doubts about "Assassin's Creed Brotherhood," given that its predecessor was released just last year.
Surely, I thought, this release would be more akin to an expansion pack than a full game, a storyless excuse to make a quick buck and test out an idea for a multiplayer game.
But my expectations couldn't have been more wrong.
Among the hottest manga/anime properties of the last few years have been "Naruto" and its sequel "Naruto Shippuden," which tell the story of the world's No. 1 knucklehead ninja (Naruto Uzumaki) and his quest to become leader of Konoha, the village hidden in the leaves.
I've often found that what works in an arcade doesn't usually work at home on a console.
My initial interest in reviewing "John Daly Prostroke Golf," a PlayStation 3 exclusive, was as a test of Sony's new Move control system.
The basic question: Could Move handle the sport? Would the controllers adequately track powerful swings? Were they capable of following slower, subtler movements, during putting for example?
