Review: Icewind Dale (Enhanced Edition)

Can you believe it has been six years since I reviewed the first three “Infinity Engine” games; Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate II, and Planescape Torment? It doesn’t seem that long ago. For the longest time, these titles were mostly forgotten by everyone except for CRPG enthusiasts. Then, earlier this year the third entry in the Baldur’s Gate saga was released…...

Review: Goldeneye 007

Goldeneye 007 is a game that needs no introduction. Even if you’ve never played it, you’ve undoubtedly heard about it at some point.

Review: Devil May Cry

I’m going to start the month off with a review for a game that was added to my backlog after being requested from multiple readers. The game in question is Devil May Cry. This is one that I’ve never played before and one that was not originally on my list. As I said above, about a year ago I asked...

Review: Super Mario Sunshine

The game I’m going to be talking about today is Super Mario Sunshine. In many ways this review is a milestone. I say this because Super Mario Sunshine is one of the first games that I purchased after a long stint away from console gaming. I’ve told this story before, but for that sake of explaining why this game is...
