Review: WWE ’12

WWE ’12 (Xbox 360, Playstation 3 [Reviewed], Wii) Developer: Yuke’s Publisher: THQ Genre(s): Wrestling, Fighting Released: November 22, 2011 ESRB Rating: T – Teen The past few years have been rough for fans of wrestling games. On one hand, the presentation of the annual WWE simulation series Smackdown vs. RAW continued to evolve and become more and more like its real life counterpart. On the other hand, the actually gameplay itself was boring and marred by poor AI, and even online play against real human opponents couldn’t make up for it because the online was as laggy and horribly as you could find. What we always ended up with was a wrestling game that looked fairly good and realistic, but was only fun for the first few days before boring gameplay and stupid AI opponents took over. … [Read more...]

Hello all and welcome back to the Top Ten.  With all the crap that was going on at Penn State last week, posting the poll just didn't seem like a priority or appropriate.   As usual, I'm late getting around to this, so we're just going to pretend that Virginia Tech's win over UNC hasn't happened yet.   LSU Tigers 10-0, 20(2) Oklahoma State 10-0, 18 Alabama 9-1, 16 Oregon 9-1, 14 Oklahoma 8-1, 12 Arkansas 9-1, 10 Clemson 9-1, 8 Stanford 9-1, 6 Virginia Tech 9-1, 3 Houston 10-0, 2 Also Receiving Votes:  Boise State 1 … [Read more...]

It seemed like an intriguing series however, so I jumped at the chance to take a crack at this game. … [Read more...]

[Vol. 3] The BrainBusters Present: A Walk Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death

 (Thanks be to sheepster for the Brainbuster banners) It has been said that life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you react to it. The Undertaker would soon prove those same calculations stood up in death. The most desperate deed—half the World Wrestling Federation locker room rushing out to lock the Dead Man in his casket—did not pass without direct implications on the Undertaker’s career. His WrestleMania streak—three consecutive wins—broken. WrestleMania X would come and go without as much as an Undertaker sighting. But time would prove itself not sand in an hourglass but putty in the soon-purple hands of the Undertaker (for who else shows up at your door at that hour in your life?). … [Read more...]

Review: Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception (Playstation 3) Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Genre(s): Action Adventure, Platform, Third Person Shooter Released: November 1, 2011 ESRB Rating: T – Teen Uncharted 3 was my most anticipated game of the year. It’s been a week since its release, and I have finished the single player campaign twice (Normal and Crushing), and I can safely say that it lived up to my anticipation and expectations. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves set the bar extremely high, and I believe Naughty Dog are right when they say the kind of jump between Uncharted to Uncharted 2 can only happen once a generation. Where Among Thieves vastly improved in every way over the first game, Drake’s Deception is only a minor step above the second in the series. One of … [Read more...]
