I have recently fallen in love with downloadable games. I think it all started with Shank, and now I have wanted to play only the best of downloadable games. I saved up for a couple PSN cards and downloaded a few games, with enough left over for two games in the future to download. I was thinking of what game to follow up Shank with that was amazing and fun to play. It had to have a great sense of humor and was epically silly. Then it came to me, DEATHSPANK! Now, at first I wasn’t that excited, but when I heard that it was made by the guy who worked on the Monkey Island series of computer games, my interest was raised a little. It’s a fun and creative game that is just a blast, but I need to say why it rocks so much. It is one of those perfect examples of how to make a great downloadable game. So, let’s vanquish evil with the power of Deathspank.

To be honest, I am not that much into downloadable games. I don’t know how to explain it since I love to download old video games through PSN and the VC, but for some reason, I don’t download a lot of downloadable games. Maybe it’s because the price can be a little odd and intimidating to me. However, I have warmed up to them recently with stuff like Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo HD and Splosion Man. I do plan on reviewing more downloadable games since there are actually a good handful of great games to download. So, to kick these downloadable games off, I decided to do a game that I have actually been waiting to download and play. So, what could this game be? What game could possibly start a new section of my blog simply known as Download Domination? Shank! Now, this is what you get if you combine Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez films into a video game, and mix it with 2 barrels of blood and violence. Since we also have the new film Machete to go see, I decided to do this game first. Over the top violence, a great grindhouse story, amazing 2D graphics, and fun gameplay. Let’s cut our way through, and review Shank!

Well, here I am again. It’s been 2 years since I started this blog, and I am very proud of it. A lot of hard work went into retyping some reviews, and I am actually still retyping some reviews as of now, but this isn’t about retyping reviews. This is my 2-year anniversary review special. At first, I wanted to do a bad game, but I decided not to torture myself with a bad game on this special occasion. I decided to review my favorite game of all time. I am not saying it just because it’s a good game. It is literally my number 1 favorite game of all time. There is no way around it, no game has gotten this spot in awhile. Final Fantasy 9 and God of War 3 were very close competitors, but this game just took that spot like no other game could. So, let’s dive into my favorite game of all time, Super Mario Galaxy 2

Hello, Internet, this is Cam’s Eye View speaking, or well, typing, to be more exact. Now, if any one of you knows me in real life you know that I just love and I mean LOVE Transformers. I mean, what boy growing up wouldn’t? Giant robots turning into cars and such were just so awesome. Here is a better question though, why do Transformer games suck? I mean, it doesn’t help that half of them are based off of Michael Bay’s version of Transformers. Granted, they are movie game tie-in products, but it shouldn’t be so hard to make a good Transformers game. However, they don’t put any effort whatsoever into the games and they end up bombing. If they did put any effort into making a good Transformers game, they would have come up with Transformers: War for Cybertron. Seen as the best of the games based off these giant robots, I decided to try this game out since I was a little skeptical at first when I saw this. Don’t get me wrong, the trailers for it were awesome and the graphics looked nice, but with Michael Bay screwing us over with both film-to-game tie-ins, you can see why I was a little hesitant to review this game. However, it turned out to be a success, and now I can get into the gears and cogs of why this game is good.
