Although a plump little plumber took over much of my game time over the past few weeks, I'm ready for a change of pace. And with this year's E3 on the horizon (along with plenty of gaming announcements), I'm even more excited for June to commence! Pass the time with a few of these games that are sure to keep you occupied all Summer long.
May is finally here! You know what that means? Why, Super Mario Galaxy 2 of course! I'm on pins and needles waiting for my copy to arrive, but that's not the only noteworthy title being released this month — check out a few more games I'd start saving up for now! Any on this list that you're waiting for?
I have to admit — I sometimes like watching scary movies and playing creepy video games in the dark! It just adds to the already cringe-inducing nature of the games, and with today being Halloween, it's the perfect time to freak yourself out with one of these six scary video games. Round up a few of your friends and play on . . . if you dare!
It's the calm before the gaming storm! Spring is not just for flowers and showers, it's the time for game companies to put the finishing touches on their work and prepare to show them off in the coming months. Look out for lots of new gaming news from now until late Fall — it's crunch time! So while we wait for the goods, check out these titles that will be hitting the shelves this month.
You know, I'm actually thankful that the past few weeks have been cold and rainy here in SF, cause I realized how behind I was on my game queue! I must be missing out on something good, so while I play catch-up, check out my gaming picks for March. I'll just toss a few of these into my pile. It never ends!
Traditionally, when I think of February, I think of love and chocolate. But this year I'm also thinking about snowy mountains, supernatural powers, space exploration, and kicking butt old-school style. Before you start calling me insane, find out why I associate those things with February — click through my slideshow of all the games hitting shelves this month!
If you haven't seen the amazing (and kinda creepy) movie trailer for Coraline, you're missing out. Made entirely of stop-animation (which I love), I'm pretty excited to see it when it hits theaters February 6.
And although there are many movie-based games that totally bomb, I think this one has a good chance of making an easy segway onto your consoles, mainly because the story has such great play value. In both the film and game, you're sent out to explore your new house and you find yourself in a totally surreal alternate life after crawling through a tiny door hidden behind some boxes. Creepy stuff ensues, and there you have it. Honestly, I can't wait to see both of these in action! Check out the trailer above and don't forget to add Coraline to your game shopping list — it's out now for your Wii, DS, and PS2 consoles for $30.
