Review: Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection

Recently SlayerAgamon and I got together for some face to face Gaming, Yeah Kaneda Gallon was there too but he didn’t sit in for the Gears of War 2 session we found ourselves in. Slayer and I were off and running in the newly released deleted scenes campaign, when I turn to him and asked `Stealth or Gun`s Blazing` I thought his eyes were going to bug out of his head – GUNS BLAZIN! was his answer as if there were another way to play Gears. I take the controls behind Marcus, and Slayer playing through as Dom, we set off for some MAJOR Grub killing. While you sit and look at the 1600 MS point price tag and debate the value – I’m telling you now – it is completely worth it. I mean look at all the stuff you get: * The Bonus deleted single-player chapter, “Road to Ruin,”* Gears of War 2 multiplayer map packs: Flashback [400 MS], Combustible [800 MS], Snowblind [800 MS], and Dark Corners [1200 MS] (19 Maps – Allfathers Garden, Canals, Courtyard, Flood, Fuel Depot, Fuel Station, Gold Rush, Gridlock, Grind Yard, Highway, Mansion, Memorial, Nowhere, Sanctuary, Subway, Tyro Station, Under Hill, War Machine, and Way Station. Gears of War 2 is probably the one game that I tell every xbox 360 owner I run into that they NEED to own, even...

Review: Batman – Arkham Asylum

Batman has had many great successes in comics, movies, cartoons and even TV shows (gotta love Adam West) but he’s never ever been properly represented in a videogame. Eidos and developer Rocksteady hope to change that stigma for the Dark Knight with a 3rd person adventure in Arkham Asylum. The story begins with Batman as he takes the Joker back to Arkham Asylum after apprehending him a little bit too easily. The Joker manages to break free and locks down the entire facility with the help of the blazingly hot Harley Quinn. As Batman the user embarks on a long journey through the pits of Arkham Asylum during the Joker’s reign of terror. The gameplay is your very typical 3rd person perspective view with simple yet completely accessible and effective fighting mechanics. Through combat, experience is earned to allow for upgrading the plethora of bat-gadgets at your disposal and combat skills. Each new section opened up tasks Batman with saving people, deciphering clues using his detective skills and figuring out puzzles left behind by the Riddler. The first things any gamer will notice is that the presentation and graphics are top notch and to top that all off the voice acting is impeccable. The Joker really sounds like a crazed maniac and Batman sounds like a dark and brooding mystery man. Arkham Asylum is huge and damn spooky with...
