One Life Left: Guacamelee!

It always warms my heart when I stumble upon an indie gem as these games tend to offer vastly different experiences than from your typical AAA release. They will be cheaper, usually offer a unique visual style and feel more like a video game due to their lack of cut scenes, dynamic cameras or other ...

One Life Left: Soul Sacrifice

“Save me!” yelled the avatar of a complete stranger. The Harpy overhead flapped its massive wings looking for its next victim to devour with a devastating multi-hit combo that would demolish more HP bars.

One Life Left: Metal Gear Rising: Reveangance

What happens when you take the genius fourth wall breaking moments, boss design and plot of industry veteran Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear series and combine it with Platinum Games talent of removing every inch of subtlety and realism from combat systems?

One Life Left: Fire Emblem Awakening

There are two very specific genres of video games that I love above all others: third person hack-and-slash games that have no regard for realism (Ninja Gaiden, Bayonetta, Devil May Cry, God of War etc.) and grid-based turn-based strategy role playing games (Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy Tactics, Advance ...

Such a technique exists, and is known as “The Approach.” It was created by acting instructor Stella Burden, ...

One Life Left: Top 5 Games of 2012

5) Gravity Rush The Playstation Vita (PSV) is Sony’s newest handheld and the successor to the Playstation Portable. It is an incredibly powerful piece of hardware that gives a very close simulation to home console-quality games on the go. However, the PSV has started out somewhat weak due to an expensive ...

One Life Left: Halo 4

343 Studios has quite the boots to fill. This studio, which no one had never heard of before, was tasked with creating the long-awaited true sequel to one of the most beloved series of our time: Halo. I was skeptical. Bungie had put their hearts and souls into this amazingly fun (if a bit campy) universe, ...
