Review: Mass Effect 2: Arrival
April 12, 2011
Arrival, the final DLC for Mass Effect 2, was recently released and it is pretty darn nifty. It took me about an hour to play through and along with snagging a few credits during the game play, there were 3 new research projects: Heavy Weapon Ammo Increase Medi-Gel Capacity Increase Heavy Skin Weave (aka more health for Shepard) There was also some Element Zero, Palladium, and Iridium to be found during the mission; the handful of planets in the system also had some resources to offer as well, though nothing terribly exciting if you have already completed the game.
Review: Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Decade Duels (Xbox 360)
November 12, 2010
Let me start by admitting that I have only played the physical card game a handful of times. However, I have played other Video Game versions of this, specifically I played (and beat) The Sacred Cards (which was in a double pack I got used at GameStop), along with some of Reshef of Destruction. Since these games were basically identical (you are a duelist running around battling other duelists winning cards and cash to buy more cards), I assumed the Xbox Version, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Decade Duels, would be more of the same. I was wrong.
Review: Onslaught mode for Bad Company 2
June 25, 2010
After some mucking about on EA’s part, Onslaught mode for Bad Company 2 finally made it to the Xbox 360. I spent a bit of time playing it and I thought I’d write up a quick review to answer the burning question in most people’s mind: “Is Onslaught worth $10 (800 pts)?”
Battlefield 2: Bad Company – Onslaught Mode Now Available
June 24, 2010
Jon was going to write up a quick bit about this, but he is too busy trying to play it to do so. Expect an actual review of this new content at a later date. Currently, you can only get it from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace right here for 800 MS Points ($10 at standard rates). The in game access to the store does not currently show it.
Review: Mass Effect 2: Overlord
June 21, 2010
Last Monday (14 June 2010), BioWare released a demo for Mass Effect 2 (and yes this is a demo for a game that has been out for awhile) on both Xbox 360 and PC. Additionally, the price recently decreased from release day standard $60 to $40, so now if you haven’t played the game, you can try the demo and then only need $40 to get the full game. On Tuesday, they released their latest bit of DLC called Overlord. Being a Mass Effect 2 fanatic, I bought it immediately for 560 MS Points (at standard conversion rate that is $7).
