Toy Story 3 Mini Review

I just got back from Toy Story 3 in 3D and I have a few thoughts on the film that I’d like to share with the readers and get your feedback on this: This was about half as funny as Toy Story 2 – at least I found myself laughing about half as much during […]

Alpha Protocol Review Summary

If you have been waiting for the next time-sync RPG to come out and thought Alpha Protocol would be it, it looks like “sorta, maybe, not really”.

Dante's Inferno: Animated Movie Review

Summary [6.5 out of 10] Dante’s Inferno: An Animated Epic is an excellent adaptation of the story behind the video game of the same name, but in the grand scheme of anime, feels like an average attempt. For a new IP from EA, putting all the money behind the game and the animated movie is […]

Pelican PS3 Dual Triggers Review

Introduction [10 out of 10] I purchased the PS3 Dual Triggers a month or so ago from Amazon for $5 with the hope that they would fix one of my major complaints with the PS3 controller: The convex buttons get slippery and your fingers slide off them while playing. There are actually 3 things I […]

Summary [8 out of 10] True-to-form I ran through BioShock 1 for the first time in preparation for BioShock 2, and last night I finally wrapped up BioShock 2 (fighting through the keybinding bugs on the PC) and found it to be an excellent continuation of the BioShock story, feeling very much like the first one […]

Terminator Salvation (Xbox 360) Review

Summary [5.5 out of 10] Terminator Salvation is a terrible game whose unfinished feel, technical hickups and terribly scripted sequences all punish the player for trying to play it. Terminator Salvation has the feel of a game that only had 8 months of development time in order to make it’s launch along-side the movie. I […]

Wii MotionPlus + Grand Slam Tennis = Garbage

Ok so I bought into the hype-machine that is everything-Nintendo and plopped down my $19.99 for a Wii MotionPlus when it came out and along with the only other highly rated Wii MotionPlus-enabled game that launched with it: Grand Slam Tennis. Here’s my single sentence description of the experience for everyone that was curious “Was […]

Thoughts on Windows 7 After 3 Days

Introduction It is no mystery that I’ve been part of the parade yelling “Vista Sucks!” since it’s inception – I’ve even taken the time to review Vista’s shortcomings for everyone willing to read it by only taking a look at changes in one program as an example of the half-assed decisions made throughout the entire […]

Since then Vizio’s business and ability to execute at delivering increasingly better panels, still targeted to the mid-range, have […]

Silent Hill: Homecoming Review (PS3)

Summary [8.0 out of 10] Silent Hill: Homecoming is a perfect fit in the existing Silent Hill lineage.

Vodafone BlackBerry Storm Review

Laurence Hartje just sent in a mini-review of the BlackBerry Storm on the Vodafone network, here it is in it’s entirety: I’ve been lusting after a Storm, and since it launched in England before the US (and I’m over here at the moment) I thought I’d swing by a Vodaphone store to play with one. […]
