Drive headlong into some great times with Dead Ahead!

dead ahead


Though this awesome little zombie killer is free for the Iphone and Android, it has a wealth of content to offer the player and hours of game play. Published by Chillingo and developed by Mobirate, with art by an artist from with the username soft-h, who’s only listed real name is Eugene, Dead Ahead is the first full-fledged game he’s worked on, and it is quite the success in my opinion. The world has been ravaged by the generic zombie super-virus, and all you have left to get you out of the undead-infested town is a scooter and a pistol. How long can you survive before the horde consumes you?!


Battle Pack 3: Monster League Review

IMG_1269What’s up guys Patrick here with another review for one of my favorite games ever Yugioh. My friends from Konami sent me over some packs of one of their new sets that just came out, Battle Pack 3. Now I had loved the previous sets of the battle pack series, and I had great expectations for this set. Now off the back looking at the card list I had some main cards that I wanted to get, like the forbidden items, herald of lights, breakthrough skill, pinpoint guard, and all the Xyzs you know staples. Now I know that these sets were made for sealed play, but I still also treat them like regular packs, still trying to get some cards for my decks and these series always gave me a better opportunity to do so. Since this set is almost all reprints, you all most likely know what the cards are and what they do, but this is the first Battle Pack set to release new cards in it that you can only get from this set. Cards like Quantum Cat, Swamp Mirrorer, and Typhoon are new to the series and could most likely see tournament play if the duelist know how to use them to their advantage in their monotype decks.

A Look Into Super Smash Bros. 4 at Comic-Con

smash bros banner

Another year, another mob of people clogging the streets of downtown San Diego as they attend Comic-con 2014, one of the biggest video game, comic book, and pop-culture events in the world. The main floor is always jam packed with booths and attractions. People all over hawk their wares; artists sell their great works, and game and movie developers premier their trailers for the next great blockbuster. Of the many game demos available at Comic-con, I was most attracted to the new Super Smash Bros. game that was playable on the 3DS at the Capcom booth and on the Wii U as well at the Nintendo lounge in the Marriott hotel. What I soon discovered was the chance the Smash Bros. team was giving to win a T-shirt. All you had to do was beat a single-player mode then win in a 4-player free-for-all match. The event went on every day with the only restriction that the event withdrew from the convention floor to the Nintendo lounge on Sunday. I was unable to win a shirt, but it was a rather fun way of getting a first look at the new game.

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath, The Greatest Game You’ve Never Heard Of



Very early on, the developer Oddworld made a huge impression on the gaming community with it’s famous puzzle/platformer games featuring the beloved Abe and Munch, a couple of misfit Mudokans timidly forging ahead on the overwhelmingly perilous continent of Mudos on planet Oddworld to try and save their species. Stranger’s Wrath, however, is a complete turn-around from those games as Stranger’s Wrath is not only an FPS, bounty-hunting game, but the main character Stranger is gruff, gritty, and quickly proves himself to be a badass for the ages.
